Does Berryburst Touch® has it in it to become more popular than Starburst Touch®? What is the difference between the two slots and what is Berryburst Max?
Nobody is going to expect the unexpected, right? So how could reviewers expect that a mobile video slot as simple as Starburst Touch® would become a success story? How could we back then expect that a game with only one true video slot feature was going to steal the slot hearts of so many? And is Berryburst Touch® is able to steal as many hearts?
Why are Berryburst Touch® and Starburst Touch® alike?
Simplicity is what made Starburst Touch® one of the most popular games in the history of the mobile slot. No wonder that this game has been used as the base for another success story, Berryburst Touch®. They are basically mobile slot buddies. It starts with the second half of the game logo used for Berryburst Touch®.
Those familiar with the Starburst logo will indeed recognise the famous letters in the Berryburst Touch® logo. But that’s not all these two mobile slot buddies share.
Why they are so much alike? Simply because Starburst Touch® is one of NetEnt’s most successful games. It’s always a good time reintroduce the game, although slightly different. Besides, the letters BURST are recognisable and it creates some sort of comfort with the Staburst Touch® fans.
The style isn’t all copied as the fortune creating Wild feature returns to the reels in Berryburst Touch® as well. This time on all five reels!
What’s different between Berryburst and Starburst?
The biggest difference between Berryburst and Starburst is that Berryburst is enriched with the Cluster Pays™ slot mechanic. Unlike Starburst, Berryburst comes in two versions, Berryburst and Berryburst Max. The Max version offers a high volatility for the more experienced NetEnt fans.
What else could be done to make Berryburst Touch® an even bigger success? Well, simply add a slot mechanic that proved to be popular with players! And that’s how Berryburst Touch® was enriched with the Cluster Pays™ slot mechanic.
But NetEnt wouldn’t be NetEnt if it didn’t try to get more out of it. After all, it was one of the best slot identities they were dealing with which lead to the talented slot creators to get the maximum out of this new slot chapter. And a new slot chapter it seemed to be with the first MAX slot product being born.
Berryburst Max Touch®
For the first time in the company’s history, NetEnt released a video slot in a standard version, as well as a MAX version. Besides Berryburst Touch®, you can also enjoy Berryburst MAX Touch® with bigger hits as a result.
Don’t think that playing Berryburst MAX Touch® is the easiest way to become rich. It simply means that if you hit it, you hit it big! But in return, you will have fewer hits, making Berryburst MAX Touch® a high volatility slot. High volatility slots won a lot in popularity over the years, especially with experienced players.
What is a high volatility slot?
What is allowing this game to be called high volatile and why is that? The high volatility level of a game describes the frequency a video slot pays out and the height of the hits. The higher the volatility of a game, the more hits you can expect and Berryburst Touch® is offering a high volatility for sure which means hits will be around often and the height of the hits are attractive enough.
Berryburst MAX Touch® is offering you a chance to go for bigger hits in exchange for less winning combinations while the basis of the game remains the same.
Berryburst MAX Touch® is offering Wild substitutions, Expanding Wilds and Re-Spins while a fruity-themed video slot is what your eyes will be treated with. However, in this MAX version, it isn’t the design you’ll be charmed about or the music. Nope, this mobile slot will be all about the high volatility, but more the height of hits rather than the frequency.
So you won’t receive a series of consecutive winning combinations as used to from most video slots. Instead, you most probably be overwhelmed by the amount of the winnings. Simply because Berryburst MAX Touch® offers you a pay-out twice as high as the pay-out available in Berryburst Touch®.
Berryburst Touch® features
High volatility is nice, but for a game to be of this type, there must be at least one slot feature that’s able to create this volatility. Just like Starburst Touch®, also Berryburst Touch® is simple with just a few slot features.
The massive success of Starburst Touch® is due to just one slot feature and this same slot feature is in some way available in Berryburst Touch® too. But the bright Starburst Star has been replaced by an ice cube which is able to appear on all five reels instead of just the three middle reels.
These are basically the two only differences as the Ice Cube Wild will expand once it appears, turning the entire reel into a Wild. Following this transformation, you activate a Re-spin in which the Wild remains in place for at least one spin. As long as new Wilds keep on appearing consecutively on the reels, Re-spins are activated.
Cluster Pays™ slot feature
That’s all when it comes to the slot features, but the way the game creates winning combinations adds to the mobile slot experience. A winning combination becomes reality when at least five of the same symbol form a cluster.
This particular slot mechanic, better known as Cluster Pays™, is available in the Cluster Pays™ series. This slot series include Aloha! Cluster Pays Touch® and The Legend of Shangri-La: Cluster Pays Touch®, but also in Twin Spin Deluxe Touch®, Lost Relics Touch®, and Emojiplanet Touch®.
