NetEnt call this slot ‘mesmerising’ and to be honest, we can’t think of a better world for this beautiful, beautiful slot. The game is very much based on the bejewelled game – or vice versa- and it’s get a real calming feel to it, but one of which you just can’t take your eyes off. Everything from the vibrant colours, to the smoothness of how this game plays out just oozes the NetEnt class that they have exerted on pretty much all their games over the last few years.
Unfortunately, there is a downside to all this and its starts with the fact they have included a 5 reel, 10 payline game which makes the games return to player percentage of 96% a little low. Features aren’t exactly crammed into the game either as all you really get to stick your teeth on is a bunch of expandable wilds and re-spins.
The games beauty is what Starburst is really all about. It’s got quite a lot of substance over style here, which is pretty unusual for a NetEnt type of slot. It does look beautiful though and you can just set it away on auto spin in a darkened room and let the relaxing music play out as you slowly drift off. Although, we wouldn’t recommend the drifting off part as at 100 coins a spin, it can soon have your bankroll in double quick time.
The game is bases all around the Starburst wild feature and it’s this which essentially is going to win you some money. What we will say first up is that the game does include an in-game jackpot of 50,000 coins which will be won using the wild symbols. Not too shabby indeed!
The wilds will turn up on reels 2, 3 and 4 and then will expand to cover the whole of this reel. Any paylines will be added to your total winnings for that spin, but as the wild expands you will also be able to get up to 3 free spins. There is actually no limit on the amount of times this can be re-triggered and whilst in the time that we played we managed to get anywhere between 6 and 18 consecutive spins, we have been informed of people getting upward of 30 in a row and some very lucrative prizes along the way.
