To Infinity and Beyond with the Starburst XXXtreme Slot
July 19, 2021
More often than not, sequels leave us wondering why they even tried. Now and then, there are these genius creators though, like those of the Bad Boys sequels. NetEnt seems to have tapped into the realm of genius with their newest video slot, a sequel to their classic – Starburst.
Starburst XXXtreme launched on the 15th of July 2021, and it glistens with gravity-defying changes.
At first glance, one may believe that nothing has changed, but take a closer look. For starters, you might notice the “Activate XXXtreme Spins” button and that they marked the 9 fixed winning lines on the side of the grid.
What you will not see straight away is that NetEnt has taken Starburst and basically done a complete overhaul. Cranked up volatility, the familiar expanding wilds and max wins of 200,000x times your stake. What once may have been a slot game for the more cautious gambler, is now for the Xander Cage-type.
The original and truly iconic Starburst theme is very much alive and well as developer, NetEnt, understands their clients love the look and feel. It isn’t a facelift they aimed for.
With each spin of the 3 x 5 reel, Starburst XXXtreme will take you on a journey beyond this galaxy. A bedazzling show of gems and sounds of space travel will make you feel akin to Sir Richard Branson, like you travelled into outer space.
The legendary Starburst Wild is still the star of the show, however it has levelled-up. Not only does it activate a respin, but it also sprinkles a random multiplier into the mix.
Wager at a minimum of €0.10 or lift-off with a max bet of €50.00 per spin. Autoplay can roll for 10 to 1000 spins and once you feel your stars are aligned explore the XXXtreme Spins and buckle up for blast off!
Note: The autoplay function may not be available in all regions due to regulatory restrictions.
A Star-Studded Reel and Electrifying Sounds
With the traditional look of Starburst, you will find familiar icons on the reels like the scintillating gems, 7s and BAR symbols.
The gems represent the low-paying symbols, 7s is the second highest and BAR the highest, offering a max win of 50x if you get 5 in a row. A nice add-on is the dynamic paytable that makes it really easy to know what your winnings can be on your current set bet.
The Starburst Wild symbol looks like the original one, sparkly and mesmerising. A wild can land on line 2, 3, and 4 and once it does it expands to cover the entire reel. These kaleidoscope star-shaped gems also activate a random multiplier.
The sound effects, colours and light lead you into the world of intergalactic travel, creating a truly immersive star ship experience.
Cranked Up Bonus Features
Expanding Starburst Wild
The iconic starburst Wild expands over the whole reel once it lands. It awards respins and random multipliers. The Wild can only appear on reel 2,3, and 4 but once it is there it locks that reel, so you can only get up to three respins. A negligible detail if you consider the multipliers can go up to 150x and each respin that has a wild in it triggers more multipliers.
These beauties shoot in from outer-space and land on the reel. Random Starburst Wilds can be activated after each spin and respin. As per the name, this happens completely at random and definitely adds to the mesmerising gameplay.
This feature is certainly not for the faint-hearted. The developers added in an explosive bonus feature where you can purchase guaranteed Wilds. The two options you can choose from are:
- 1 x Guaranteed Wild: This will increase your odds but not quite break the bank. You can buy a guarantee of 1 Wild showing up on your reels for 10 times the bet amount.
- 2 x Guaranteed Wilds: The question here is: “Are you feeling really lucky?” For a stiff 95 times your bet amount, you can buy 2 guaranteed Wilds.
XXXtreme spins can be activated and deactivated at the player’s will and adjusted at every new round if you like.
