Starburst Bingo Sites from NetEnt
It doesn’t seem possible, but Starburst has been with us for around a decade now. Released in 2012, it was an immediate hit, and remains one of the most popular slots around. Its simplicity is its strength. It’s a beautiful, soothing game, with its brightly coloured gemstones and its atmospheric electronic soundtrack making it quite a relaxing game to play. The additional traditional “fruit machine” symbols also give it a certain nostalgic feel.
Starburst Game Play
Star spangled gemstones make up most of the reel characters on this standard five reel, three row game. There are also some old school symbols like ‘BAR’ and the number ‘7’ to add some variety. The transparent reels run individually, setting off with a sonar style ‘ping’. The symbols can run in clusters, adding to the spectacular beauty of the game. It’s also a clever design, because it always looks as if a big win is just within your grasp.
When a win does arrive, your reels are illuminated by a firework style explosion of light and sparks. A big orchestral type score also wells up to add drama to your success. There are only ten fixed pay lines, but it is a “win both ways” design, not just the standard left to right format.
You can bet from just 1p up to £100 per spin, so this really is a game for all sizes of budget. The Return to Player Rate (RTP) is 96.1%.
Starburst Bonus Features
The ‘Wild’ on this game is the ‘Starburst’ referred to in the game’s title. These can substitute for any other symbol, but they only appear on the central three reels. Get one or more on any of these reels to trigger the Starburst Wild feature. When this happens, the Starburst Wilds expand to cover the entire reel, then remain in place while the other reels are re-spun. If you manage to get a further Starburst Wild on your reels, this too expands to cover the reel and the process is repeated for a further re-spin. The process ends when no new Starburst Wilds appear on your reels. The maximum number of re-spins for this feature is therefore three.
And that’s it. I did say the game was simple! There are no Scatter symbols on Starburst – your free spins come from the Starburst Wild feature alone. It’s really easy to play, which won’t suit players looking for a tactical challenge. On the other hand, its smooth score and visual splendour makes it a truly relaxing game to play, while the prospect of some decent prizes bring an extra incentive
This is a game which truly has stood the test of time. An all-time classic!
