Starburst Bonus Features

Starburst Wilds: The Wild is the star shaped; multi colored symbol and it functions in more than one way.

  1. It substitutes for all other symbols.
  2. If more than 1 Wild appears on reels 2, 3 or 4 it becomes an Expanding and Sticky Wild, which then sticks and triggers a re-spin. If consecutive Wild appears during re-spins they also expand to stay along side the preexisting Wilds. There can be up to 3 re-spins per stuck Wild reel, but the re-spins will end when there are no new Starburst Wilds during the re-spins.

Overall Thoughts about Starburst

Starburst slot is a great play, there is no getting away from it and this has allowed it to earn iconic status with slot players, however it is not without it’s faults. Mainly that it is a very simple slot. Although the Wild both expands and re-spins, it doesn’t compare to the loss of a scatter and free spins. It’s quite hard to trigger anything more than 1 re-spin and we really found ourselves missing something more addictive like free spins. Overall, Starburst slot is a really nice play and visually impressive as it manages to create a thrilling, arcade atmosphere perfectly, steeped in cosmic vision and win entertaining win animations. However, for us we have seen far more exciting slots come from NetEnt casino.

All NetEnt online slots can be played for free before you wager. This provides an excellent opportunity to get used to a slot before you gamble. Try Starburst and other online slots now.
