Play Starburst for real!

The reviews of the Starburst™ video slot weren’t that promising after its game’s release at the beginning of 2012. Luckily, it all worked out well, really well actually! Players got easily used to the simplicity of the Starburst™ slot. And eventually, it even led to the massive popularity of this NetEnt slot.

Not only the simplicity was the biggest success factor of the Starburst™ video slot. More and more online casinos used this video slot for promotions. This resulted in another boost for the Starburst™ video slot.

Starburst Facts

Original video slot

NetEnt prides itself on being a front-runner in game development. They use the latest technology, 3D graphics and animations, continuously introducing new and innovative features, functions and game ideas.

The result speaks for itself when you have a look at the Starburst™ slot and its success story. For a while, reviewers weren’t enthusiastic at all about Starburst™. Simply because there wasn’t any other game Starburst™ could be compared with.

Reviewers love to compare. Because a game, film or book has to be better than ever. But something can’t be better than ever if there’s nothing to be better than. This was sort of the case with Starburst™.

And even though the inspiration for this video slot is definitely the popular gem bursting games, reviewers still didn’t have anything to compare Starburst™ with.

If you look for originality, you are at the right place with this brilliant video slot. It’s RTP of 96.1% isn’t the highest around. Yet, Starburst™ caused many players to win a huge amount of money. It happens when the Starburst Wild appears on all three middle reels.

That’s exactly why millions of players worldwide by now embraced this NetEnt slot. They keep coming back for more, the reason it still tops the video slot charts, every single month again! For almost a decade now!



The Starburst™ theme is brilliant in so many ways. Not only the design brings the best, so are the extra features. Literally brilliant are the symbols Starburst is built up with as diamonds, rubies, sapphires and emeralds shine away during the game.

And even though all these gemstones make you dazzle already, the Starburst™ Wild is definitely stealing the show. The colours jump out of your screen. But not without leaving you with a bunch of winnings.

Betting options

Starburst’s simple gameplay but original features is also accompanied by a variety of betting options. They start from 0.01 going up to 100.00. This makes this video slot game perfect for all type of players, even for those who love to play with high bets.

Low-risk players can start with one bet line and a total bet of 0.01, but just as usual, I do recommend starting with at least all 10 bet lines to increase your chances to win.

This means a minimum bet of 0.10. But in between this lowest bet and the highest bet, the Starburst™ slot offers you many more betting options thanks to the ten levels and the seven different coin values.

Starburst™ features

At first glance, you might get disappointed by the fact that this video slot game has only one bonus feature. Not that anyone complains about it while playing a gem bursting game as a mobile game or as a social media game, it initially looked like a downside for the reviewers.

I think it was this same simplicity that eventually made Starburst what it is now, one of the most popular video slots designed by NetEnt.

And as said before, this is not because Starburst™ packs many extra features. It’s simply because the few features it does offer, are just brilliant.

Not only Starburst™ manage to prove that ‘less is more’. At a later date, NetEnt launched more of these games. Take Reel Rush™ and Twin Spin™, for example. Another two perfect examples of how simplicity can work out perfectly well.

Starburst™ Wild

The traditional Wild is replaced with an innovative new Starburst™ Wild. It expands over the entire reel and remains in place for up to three Re-spins. This of course at no extra cost to you, making it an actual Free Spin.

The possibilities for huge wins with Starburst™ Wilds are astronomical due to the fact that this expanding Starburst Wild can appear on the three middle reels. I don’t have to tell you what happens if this same Wild appears on all three reels at the same time.

Both ways Win

In addition to the ever amazing Starburst™ Wild, this video slot has one more feature I have to tell you about. Even though this feature is definitely overshadowed by the Wild feature, you should bear in mind that the Starburst™ slot is a Both Way Win video slot. This means it offers you the two-way-win feature.

With the Starburst™ slot NetEnt proved once again to be a leading innovator with all the excitement and high energy wins Starburst™ is all about, taking its inspiration from the gem bursting games now so popular on mobile and social applications, and almost just as popular in the NetEnt Casinos.
