Released a few years back, Starburst is one of the games created by NetEnt that used to have a huge following but can no longer make that claim. At the time of its release, it was a crowd favourite and this may have been because it is a simple game to play with straightforward betting yet enough hidden surprises to make it interesting. Of course, online video slots have evolved and thus, this game lost a little of its charm but is still well received with online players. With a fixed jackpot of 2 500 coins, a bonus round and good graphics, Net Entertainment has done a very good job on this one, but unlike the diamond, ruby and other precious stone symbols used in the game, there is not much about this one that really shines.

Based on a theme of all that is bright and brilliant, Starburst makes use of symbols such as rubies, sapphires and other precious gems to give the game its glamour. Betting starts very low on the game, but reaches impressive heights, making this is a good game to choose no matter whether you prefer to keep your wagers low or spend big bucks. There are 10 paylines, which is not much for a NetEnt game but will yield a very fair chance of winning if you’ve activated them all.
Though the game appears overly simplistic at first glance, there are a few features that the developer snuck in that are impressive, the first of these being the Starburst Wild feature. This replaces the more traditional wild symbol and is an expanding wild that takes over the three centre reels and can stay exactly where it is for up to three spins. We don’t have to tell you that this means your chances of winning skyrocket when this happens. And if you manage to get the Starburst Wilds to stay in place on all three applicable reels at the same time, you’ll be taking home impressive wins.
Another feature to take note of is that the game does not pay only on symbols from left to right but also from right to left. That means that though the game is a 10-payline online video slot, you essentially have 20 paylines that can be used to create winning combos. Another great feature to take note of is that you can win a huge amount of cash if you bet the maximum, which is great for the high rollers, but you will need to get at least two wilds to appear and expand on the reels.
These features really make up for the fact that this game has no progressive jackpot or bonus round and if you’re thinking of spending your money elsewhere, trust us: give Starburst a chance. Sure, it’s not as highly developed as some of the brilliant new releases from NetEnt, but there’s a reason this game has stayed so popular for so long, and if you want to find out exactly what that reason is, you’ll need to give it a try.Our rating: 80/100
