Starburst is a highly popular 10-payline video slot running on the NetEnt software platform. The game’s vibrant expanding wild is the Starburst symbol, which will be described in greater detail further in the text. Players can try this colourful slot on this page for free or opt for any of the featured NetEnt casinos to play the game for real money.
Before spinning the flashy reels, players are advised to regulate their bet. The “Lines” selector allows players to alter the number of paylines played, while the “Level” selector is used to choose the bet level. Clicking on the “Coin Value” selector modifies the coin size, which ranges from 0.01 to 1. To start the game, “Spin” needs to be pushed. “Max Bet” will spin the reels at the highest available wager, while “Autoplay” turns them a number of times uninterrupted.
The Starburst wild symbols only emerge on reels 2, 3 and 4. When 1 or more wilds appear on those reels, the Starburst Wild feature is triggered, wherein Starburst wilds expand to cover the entire reel, where they remain while the other reels re-spin. Should a new wild emerge during a re-spin, it expands and stays alongside any previously expanded Starbursts for another re-spin.
The Starburst feature is over when there are no new Starburst wilds during a re-spin. Up to 2 additional Starbursts can appear after a re-spin, triggering 1 additional re-spin for each appearing Starburst wild for a maximum of 3 re-spins.
