The hugely popular Starburst slots game is available to play at Casumo, Dunder and Play Frank amongst other online casinos.
It’s been produced by leading Swedish company NetEnt, and has taken the online slots world by storm since its creation back in 2012, displaying its developer’s trademark good looks and crisp, simple 3D visuals, coupled with a pumping soundtrack and other special effects.
Players of all levels of experience love it even though there’s no bonus game, no free spins, and, initially, it seems a pretty bog-standard five-reel, 10-payline slot. Its success is down to its great playing experience, mobile-friendliness and the chance it offers to win some seriously big money.
Despite its somewhat showy nature, it’s fun and simple to play, and is packed with subtle little details, while games end in a dazzling, fast-paced finish.
How to play
Colourful, sparkly gems are the game symbols in Starburst, and these create the focal point, all set against a deep purple background.
These are purple, blue, orange, green and yellow in rising order of value, with the regular ‘seven’ and ‘bar’ symbol already known to fruit machine fans. As with many other slots games, you can regulate your wager as well as the number of playlines.
There’s a wide betting range, kicking off from as little as 10p and rising to up to £100 a pop. You can play one to 10 bet lines at different bet levels and coin values, ranging from 1p to 20p. The top payout is restricted to 500 coins.
The game’s Wild symbol is the Starburst itself, and the highlight of the whole game, effectively replacing a free spins feature. It can land on any of the three central reels and expands to cover them before being held for up to three respins. Your chances are boosted because you win both from left to right and in the other direction.
And you qualify for an extra free spin if the symbol appears during a respin. Up to three respins can take place within a single feature.
Tips and strategies
- You can opt for numerous smaller bets, or player fewer, more valuable ones. You could also try proportionately upping your bets as you win while banking a proportion as ‘profit’.
- Use the Autoplay feature if you fancy a long Starburst session, but don’t necessarily want to watch every spin.
- Don’t forget to try the mobile game so you can enjoy this slot on the move – Starburst Touch is the mobile-friendly version
One of the great things about Starburst is you can play it whatever your experience and budget, and there are some exciting opportunities to win big.
What’s more the RTP or Return to Player is pretty decent at 96.1%, as well. So it’s not hard to see why this colourful, turbo-charged game remains such a firm favourite among online casino fans.
There are no progressive jackpots in Starburst, although there are some on some other games on many of the other providers featured on Roger.
