Starburst Slot

starburst slotStarburst is NetEnt's most popular game, and at first glance it's difficult to see why.
Sure, the design looks fantastic on this 10 pay-line, 5 reel game. It’s got the feel of a modern take on a traditional fruity with symbols like Bars, 7s and gemstones. But there are no bonus rounds, no scatters, and no obvious bells and whistles on this game. So what makes it so popular?
Well, you start to get your ahead around that question as soon as you fire the game up. It works just as well on a mobile or tablet as it does on larger screens- in fact, I’d go as far as saying that the game plays better on a smartphone, as long as you have a decent sized screen.
I think the secret to Starburst’s popularity is its simplicity. Try the free game on the Wombat Casino Starburst page to see what we mean (desktop and mobile avaialble).
It’s got one major feature and a secret tucked up its sleeve. Let’s expand on that shall we!

Expanding Wilds
The big deal about the Starburst slot are the Expanding Wilds. When a Starburst (multi-coloured star) lands on your screen, it automatically expands across the entire reel and it can trigger up to 3 re-spins. The screen suddenly explodes into life and you will start to see Combo, Super Combo and hopefully even Mega Combo flash onto the screen as the games notched up winning combinations- the wilds will stand in for anything by the way (there being no scatter symbol).
The other trick that the Starburst slot has up its sleeve, is that it pays out in both directions. On most slots, you would be paid out if you landed 3 gems, for example, on an activated pay-line going from left to right: on reels 1,2 and 3 in other words.
On Starburst, you notch up wins when symbols line-up from right to left too- so on reels 3,4 and 5. And that makes for more winning chances! You will only get the highest win on each activated pay-line- if you have 2 wins lined up on a pay-line (where there are wilds involved for example), only the highest is awarded.

Starting to Play
starburst bar symbolThis is a more traditional kind of set up. We see lots of 243 Ways to Win games, and fixed pay-line games these days. Not so on Starburst, which sticks to a traditional set up where you choose your coin size, your number of Pay-Lines and and your bet level. Bet level 2 is double 1, 3 is triple level 1 and so on up to a maximum of 10.
This way, you can control the volatility or variance of the slot to some extent. Bet more pay-lines to see more frequent wins, but at a lower return on your total bet. Bet fewer pay-lines to see less frequent wins- but the ones you see will deliver a higher return on your total bet.
The top paying symbol is the BAR symbol which pays 250 coins if you land 5 of them and 50 for three. Next comes 7 and the gems, the diamond being the Big Daddy of course

Summary
Once you start playing Starburst you’ll see why it’s so popular. Great sound effects, supernovae exploding off everywhere when you win and one of the best wild features we have seen anywhere. Period.
