10 days left for the Starburst XXXtreme™ videoslot to arrive
Halfway June, NetEnt launched its first teaser preview video in a long time. It’s understandable that it’s this particular game that got a teaser video. It’s the long-awaited sequel to the timeless and ever-popular NetEnt slot Starburst™. On the 15th July, almost 10 years after the launch of Starburst™, you can look forward to the Starburst XXXtreme™ videoslot of which I now have more details! So have a coffee while reading all about the upcoming blockbuster videoslot and the differences with its predecessor.
What’s all the fuss about?
I have been waiting for weeks for more details to become available about the upcoming Starburst XXXtreme™ video slot. Writing about the online casino games for 12 years and NetEnt in particular since 2013, Starburst™ became, like Gonzo Pizarro, a part of my life.
I can’t remember the number of reviews, summaries, promotion announcements I wrote that involved the Starburst™ slot. Now again, Starburst™ is in the spotlights! Its sequel is on its way to the NetEnt Casinos with only 10 days to go before we enjoy the Starburst XXXtreme™ video slot.
I can’t believe it, it’s back! And better than ever. The original Starburst recipe you love with an added burst of rocket fuel. This iconic game is about to see a whole new generation of spinners.
NetEnt launched the Starburst™ slot in 2012 and the game has been loved by players ever since. The game keeps reminding on players of the Bejeweled game, however, its style went to live its own life. It’s now also recognized from Starburst™ with its purple background, taking you into space where you’re most probably find the most colourful star ever seen! The Starburst™ Star!
Are we going to see that particular colourful Wild Star back in the Starburst XXXtreme™ videoslot? And if so, what’s new in the sequel to the Starburst™ slot that causes NetEnt to publish a teaser and create the fuss?
Starburst™ vs Starburst XXXtreme™ videoslot
With more information available about the Starburst XXXtreme™ videoslot, I can finally make a comparison between the best and the new! Between Starburst™ and Starburst XXXtreme™.
Win Both Ways feature
Let’s start with the Win Both Ways feature. Does it return to the Starburst XXXtreme™ videoslot? I can’t say yet. The detailed description available doesn’t mention the slot feature, but the chance is big that winnings will run from left to right and the other way around in the sequel to the Starburst™ slot.
They must return to the Starburst XXXtreme™ videoslot. There’s no way around the Starburst™ Wild! It’s Starburst is all about, no matter is the original of the XXXtreme version. So yes, it indeed returns to the reels from the 15th of July. More details will follow in this pre-review!
No Starburst™ Wild without a Re-spin. So, yes, when the Starburst™ Wild is brought back to the reels, the Re-spin comes along. In the Starburst XXXtreme™ videoslot, however, an extra slot feature comes along.
Starburst XXXtreme™ videoslot features
While I just gave you a summary of what features to expect back in the sequel to the Starburst™ slot, it’s now time to see what the slot features are truly about. Get prepared, because the upcoming NetEnt slot is expecting to live up to its name!
With this new edition, NetEnt brings you new age features. They cranked up volatility and additional functionality.
There is no feature more central to the Starburst™ universe than the Wild. Appearing on reels 2, 3, and 4, they substitute for all symbols. They also expand, and each Wild awards a Re-Spin and a random Multiplier. If an additional Starburst™ Wild symbol lands on the reels during a Re-Spin, it also expands and awards another Re-Spin. Reels covered with Starburst™ Wild symbols are locked during subsequent Re-spins.
One of the most exciting features in the Starburst XXXtreme™ videoslot is the Random Wilds feature. The Random Wild is randomly activated after a spin or a Re-Spin. 1 to 3 Starburst™ Wild symbols that land on reels 2, 3, and 4. Starburst™ Wilds come with a random Multiplier of x2, x3, x5, x10, x25, x50, x100, x150. The overall Multiplier can go even higher than x150 if more than one Multiplier lands during a spin or a Re-Spin.
New in the Starburst XXXtreme™ videoslot slot the possibility to purchase XXXtreme spins. Activating XXXtreme Spins guarantees Starburst™ Wilds. Activating XXXtreme Spins costs 10x the bet for 1 guaranteed Starburst™ Wild symbol per spin, and 95x the bet for 2 guaranteed Starburst™ Wild symbols per spin.
With the improved slot features in the Starburst XXXtreme™ videoslot and you to be able to buy XXXtreme Spins, the volatility of this sequel is higher than its original. The percentage will become available next week, on launch day. 15th July can’t come quick enough!
