Starburst Slot Review

Here’s a game from NetEnt that came out four years ago and has been a fantastic hit for the unstoppable company. No sweets here but some glistening symbols that can really add some sparkle to your life.

This is a five-reel game that has just the three rows of symbols and only ten paylines. It’s a bit different from most of the games that you play because there’s no free spins to be seen anywhere or a bonus game. As you’ll read though there are plenty of reasons why this is such a popular game.

Playing the game costs between £0.01 and £100. You need to decide your coin size, the number of coins you’ll play on a line and the total number of paylines you want to activate. There may only be ten paylines but the advantage here is that you can win both ways.

The symbols in this game are a collection of different coloured jewels. Other symbols include a 7 and a bar.The Starburst Wilds are a little bit different in this game. Usually the wild symbol can be seen as part of the game throughout. Here though the wilds aren’t on full-time duty and only appear on the second, third and fourth reels randomly. When they do make an appearance that’s really good news. It’s no normal wild, this one can expand to cover the whole reel. It’ll also stay there for the next spin and hopefully another wild will appear. This feature can actually last for three spins and only ends when a free spin doesn’t result in another wild turning up and expanding over an entire reel. If you can get three reels totally wild then some big wins are definitely on their way to you.

The soundtrack to this game has a bit of a cosmic feel to it. It’s not bad and definitely won’t have you reaching for the mute button. Playing the game isn’t too difficult but in order to fully understand the game take a look through the pay table and enjoy some free games too.

If you get a bit fed up of having to constantly spin the reels, set an autoplay feature. This can be for between ten and a thousand or go for the more advanced setting. This can stop the automated spins when a certain balance, good or bad is reached or when a specified win comes along that you definitely want to defend.

Bonus Games

There’s no specific bonus game here. It’s the Starburst Wilds that will help you get some big wins here, so keep on playing even if you do miss your free spins.


Another interesting game from NetEnt. It has a good look to it, the them is a reasonably simple one and the soundtrack not irritating at all. The Starburst Wilds are the main feature here and if you are lucky enough to be able to get three reels completely wild then it really is time to celebrate. Definitely recommended.
