Starburst Slot Review

The Starburst slot is arguably the most popular online slot in the world. It’s a bit of a mystery as to why this particular game has always been a favourite amongst players. Maybe it’s the simplicity of it all, maybe it’s the bright colours and exploding symbols or maybe it’s just something that will forever remain unexplained. Kind of like the possibility of Alien life…or why the Stonehenge was built! So while we can't say exactly why this casino game should be one of the most famous online slots of all time, we can certainly tell you what we think puts the ‘Star’ quality into Starburst.

Starburst Slot basics

Starburst Slot Overview & Summary

  • Starburst is a 5x3 reel slot with just 10 paylines but pays both ways.
  • Bets start out at £0.10 a spin and big-hitters can look forward to a maximum bet of £100.
  • With an RTP of 96.1%, it’s a pretty generous slot with regular hit frequency.
  • NetEnt released the video slot BerryBurst which many consider a sequel to the Starburst slot.
  • It’s a slot known for being simple, featuring just the one bonus feature. However there is also the possibility to score big - up to 50,000 coins!

Why play Starburst Slot

The sight of those exploding juicy symbols needs to be experienced at least once in the lifetime of any slots player. The game is an immersive and exhilarating ride that takes you on a journey into space with retrowave music and dramatic sound effects. Starburst is also a game that will appeal to fans of classic slots, due to its straight-forwards gameplay and nostalgic, gem-studded vibe. If you enjoy low-variance games, where your bank rarely takes big hits, then Starburst could be a great game for you.

Even though there isn’t anything about this game which is directly related to the fruit-flavoured soft taffy candy of the same name, it does share one thing in common: like big candy lovers, video slots players keep coming back for more!

How to play Starburst

Ever played NetEnt slots in the past? Then you’ll know the drill - but we’ll take you through it all the same. Adjusting the Coin Value and Level is what determines how much you’re betting per spin. The number of paylines always remains the same at 10 and you’ll be pleased to know that you can win from both left to right and right to left, which is pretty rare.

The Autoplay function is available, should you prefer to have the Starburst slot on automatic pilot rather than manually spin each time. Autoplay allows you to simply set a predetermined number of spins or bets, and then sit back to enjoy the visual experience and anticipatory thrill while the reels roll themselves.

Starburst Slot Bonuses

Starburst only has one bonus round - which might be surprising, considering its popularity. It seems simplicity is a prefered factor for many players of online slots - and that can be seen loud and clear in the love that online casino have for this very straight-forward slot.

But it’s worth emphasising exactly how much this makes Starburst stand out from other video slots. It’s not unusual, these days, for some online casino games to have four or five bonus rounds, which offers a level of unpredictability sure to raise the excitement factor.

But it is what it is. Starburst is a delightfully simple game. And the one bonus round it does have is a big hit. Let’s go through it.

Starburst Slot Re-Spin

There are some beautifully sparkling symbols on display here in the Starburst slot, but the Wild is by far the most dazzling of the lot. A star-shaped symbol boasting eight different colours, it frequently appears on Reels 2, 3 or 4.

When it does appear, it does several things for you. The first is that it appears stacked as a Wild symbol, meaning that it could easily lead to a decent win straight up. The second is that it always triggers a Re-Spin. That means it will stay in its original position and could lead to a further win, helped by its presence as a Stacked Wild.

If the Re-Spin does secure a win, you get another one. You can get up to three Re-Spins in a row this way, by which time you will probably have walked away with a very decent prize.

How to win at Starburst Slot

Activating the Re-Spin as many times as possible is an obvious way to make sure you get regular payouts. But it’s not the only way of winning on the Starburst slot. Even without the assistance of the Starburst symbol and Re-Spins, you can secure ‘Combis’ in the main base game. That means that several different winning combinations involving different symbols and in different directions, all paying out at once on the same spin.

Win both ways feature

The win both ways feature is especially great because this video slot only has 10 paylines. It doesn’t matter which way a winning combination falls on the reels because you are paid-out whether it appears left to right or right to left. If you have a look at the pay table you can see all the possible winning combinations as well as the payout for three, four and five of a kind of each symbol. This feature makes it easier to get winning combinations which adds an exciting element to Starburst that just keeps you wanting more!
