One week to go for the launch of Berryburst Max™ and the Berryburst™ video slot

For the first time in the history of NetEnt, a video slot is going to be launched in two different versions with one of them specially developed for players looking for a game with high win potential. The games have been announced a month ago and it’s going to be next that the official Berryburst™ video slot launch is a fact. On the exact same day, Berryburst Max™ will become available as well.

Double slot release

It’s not the first fruity slot sensation launched at the NetEnt Casinos, but the game will definitely be different than any other fruity video slot launched in the past years. This is simply because it involves a double slot release. Besides the Berryburst™ video slot, Berryburst MAX™ will become available as well, making bigger wins possible.

The innovative MAX slots share similar return-to-player percentages and proprietary video slot mechanics as their regular version counterparts. The main differences between the two games are the frequency winning combinations show up and the winnings paid out when a winning combination indeed shows up.

Henrik Fagerlund, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, says: “It is important for us to diversify the volatility in our games as we know that our partners are demanding more flexible games catering to different player needs, and we are a supplier that listens to our customers and deliver quality. We are certain that the MAX releases will add another dimension to our already hugely popular portfolio, and we are pleased to increase the standard of the gameplay experience for players.”

The Berryburst™ video slot

In the Berryburst™ slot announcement, I showed you the differences between the Berryburst™ video slot and the popular Starburst™ video slot. No gems this time, for example, but again you’ll get to hear an airy sound. The biggest difference between the two games though is the gameplay in which the bet lines have been replaced with Cluster wins.

The Expanding Wild is back, but the famous Starburst™ star has been replaced with an Expanding Wild symbol. Right after the announcement, I wasn’t sure if we were looking at a better game here, but the MAX™ version might be the change players are looking for in a video slot.

The preview videos hardly show any differences between the two games, but I know it can all be found in the frequency winnings will show up and the payouts provided. The game themselves consist of the exact same gameplay involving Wild substitutions, Expanding Wilds and Re-Spins, while winnings are provided by the familiar Cluster Pays™ mechanic as used before in the NetEnt slots Aloha! Cluster Pays™, The Legend of Shangri-La: Cluster Pays™,  Twin Spin Deluxe™, Lost Relics™, and Emojiplanet™.

The Berryburst MAX™ video slot

So if both video slots provide the exact same gameplay, then what is it that the Berryburst MAX™ slot has to offer so special compared to the standard Berryburst™ slot? I would say a game that is perfect for those who love to play for the bigger wins which means that the Berryburst™  slot will bring more winnings, but the Berryburst MAX™ slot will bring bigger hits.

This way, NetEnt and its customers, can provide players with two different video slots to meet different needs. The one player loves wins coming in and doesn’t care if they are the highest wins possible while mainly high rollers prefer less action on the reels but big hits. So I assume that the payout numbers like the RTP percentage and Hit frequency will be lower in Berryburst MAX™, but instead, the payouts will be higher. If you win, you win bigger, simple as that.

Depending on what you prefer, the choice is now yours! Are you going for the fun and action on the reels or are you going for the big bucks?
