Starburst Slot Game Background

The Starburst online slot game was released by NetEnt on 12th November 2013. It features a simple 5-reel, a 3-row online slot with 10 paylines and a max possible payout of 500x per spin. This is coupled with an assortment of exciting features such as Wilds, Respins, and Win Both Ways. Adding to the appeal is the slot’s galaxy-themed presentation, with lots of little flourishes that add to the immersion and atmosphere.

Starburst Slot Game Design

NetEnt has created something truly special with this online casino game. Load up Starburst and you’re immediately transported to the outer reaches of the galaxy. The style and format are reminiscent of games such as Bejewelled, while the dazzling colours and timeless style ensure it still looks the part against modern machines. The reels have been plunked right in orbit around a planet, and contrary to most other slots, are not encased in a frame, although the reels themselves are separated by thin, vertical purple lines. The space-inspired setting of the slot also reacts to your play. As you hit winning combinations, the high-energy music cranks up, and bursts of rays light up the screen to create an immersive experience.

Starburst Slot Mobile

The Starburst slot game is available on desktop PCs and all mobile devices and tablets, including Android and Apple at Lottomart. The only requirement is a stable internet connection.

Starburst Slot Symbols

The symbols are colourful and elaborately detailed and of course, fit the Space meets precious jewels theme to a tee.

At the lower end of the scale are the different shaped and different coloured Gem symbols. These sparkle with 25x - 60x for 5-of-a-kind on the reels.

Next up are the Lucky 7 and BAR symbols; these have a payout of 120x and 250x respectively for 5-of-a-kind on the reels.

Let’s talk about the Wild symbol, here represented by a Starburst glittering in rainbow colours. The Starburst Wild appears on reels 2, 3 and 4, and substitutes for all other symbols. Land a Starburst Wild symbol and it will expand on the reels, triggering respins.

Starburst Slot Bonus Features

The slot game includes several bonus features, all of which are discussed below.

Wild Bonus

This bonus round is activated once a single Starburst Wild symbol lands on one of the middle three reels (2, 3, or 4). Once this happens, the Wild symbol will expand and cover the slot’s entire reel that it landed on. The newly created Wild reel will then remain in place as the other reels go for another spin. If you manage to land another Wild symbol during this re-spin, it will again expand and remain in place with any other Wild-covered reels. This process will continue until a re-spin doesn’t produce a Wild or the maximum limit is reached. When the Wild respin function is activated, another 2 further Wild symbols can appear. This allows for an additional respin per Wild symbol, leading to a maximum of 3 re-spins in total. Respins in Starburst are played with the same bet level you used in the base game to trigger this bonus round.

Win Both Ways

When it comes to most slots you come across – either online or in a land-based casino – they will require you to match symbols from left to right of the reels. With Starburst, however, the game is changed thanks to its Win Both Ways feature. As the name suggests, this means you can score wins from not just the left, but also the right, giving you more chances to win. Technically, Starburst only features 10 paylines. Yet due to the unique Win Both Ways element, which doubles the chances of winning, you effectively end up with 20 paylines overall, and although this isn't a Megaways slot, this is still a decent amount in our opinion.

Starburst Slot Summary
