BerryBurst MAX slot from NetEnt

BerryBurst MAX slot from NetEnt
The double release of BerryBurst and BerryBurst MAX slots is the first example of the “MAX” product line of NetEnt (dating Q3 of 2018), where a clone and original are simultaneously presented. The giant developer launched the MAX concept wishing to target different audience groups. 

In a way, with this single action, they “hit three birds,” creating games that are: Good for players, loving simple mechanics and seeking medium variance game; Good for players, loving explosive features and higher variance game - as the MAX is always carrying a higher and edgier potential; and Good for the Canadian online casinos - as they can use the same launch and marketing campaign presenting both slots.

The BerryBurst MAX has an RTP of 96.23,% while the regular version has 96.56%. The BerryBurst MAX can be characterized as a game with High Volatility vs the low-average volatility of the regular version slot. With BerryBurst MAX edition NetEnt implemented a dramatic increase of the higher paying symbols. The analytical result of the difference between the MAX clone and the casual version is that: 0ne pays more often (MAX), while the other pays more overall (Original slot).

Personal testers’ opinion (Review and recommendations from the testers’ team)

  • Everyone from the testers instantly fell in love with this slot. The game is simplistic, colourful, and refreshing with a lovely sound and summery feeling. 
  • The main difference of this slot from its clone is that it provides a larger win for the top combination. 
  • Because of this, the MAX slot has slightly different behaviour in the usual spins. 
  • Despite a slightly lower RTP in the usual spins (without the re-spin feature,) in our opinion, the slot renders payment combinations a bit more often, although they are not that significant. 
  • The combinations give variable rewards per nominal bet, but at the same time, losing the balance is not so easy here. In case you lose a big chunk of your balance with one large winning via Wild symbols and re-spin feature accordingly - and you are back in the “business”!
  • The number of spins issuing the Wild symbol for both versions is almost the same.
  • This slot gives a huge potential for a big win - for example, with five wild symbols, the winning will be 1000x the bet, and with the re-spin, it will be around 1500x – 2000x the bet. 
  • NetEnt spread some claims for a potential gain with this MAX version of the slot up to 6000x, but in our opinion, this is only theoretically possible.
  • Although the slot RTP is set at 96.23%, if you will only play just a few spins, you are not getting anything close to that.

Slot’s symbols and features

  • For both BerryBurst slots, the pay symbols are: 
  • 1) Diamonds, spades, and hearts at the low end, 
  • 2) Limes, blueberries, and oranges on the middle level, and 
  • 3) Raspberries at the high end of the paytable.
  • The wild symbol replaces all other symbols and is a letter “W” frozen in an ice cube that shatters when the Wild is expanding. So, basically, you have a reel of wilds. If you win, the wild reel will be locked into its place, and the other reels will automatically Re-spin.
  • The Wild symbol pays as follows:
  • 1) When hitting a 15-symbol cluster in the casual version, the payout is 5000.
  • 2) When hitting a 15-symbol cluster in the MAX version, the payout is 10000.
  • There are no scatters on this slot as it does not have a bonus game with Free Spins.
  • Since this slot is a complete copy of the casual version, we immediately comprehend that it provides the same high-quality graphics and sound experience. Moreover, there are also no rough mathematical solutions in this slot, as with the original, which is nice and lucrative. The slot will pay plenty without the feeling that it is cheating you.
  • Many reviewers are seeing the similarity between both BerryBurst slots and the Starburst slot from the same provider. Sure, but besides the distinct theme and design, there are two other definable differences: 
  • 1) The ability to get an expanding wild symbol not only on 2, 3, and 4 reels but on all reels; and 
  • 2) The payment combinations are not formed by playing line, but in a cluster- a group of 5 and more connected tiles (horizontally and vertically) which score you the coins - the same as in the Aloha Cluster Pays slot also from NetEnt.
  • The entire functionality is in the usual spins for both slot versions, and it essentially reduces to the expanded Wild symbol and the Re-spin feature.

How to win at BerryBurst MAX slot? (Conclusion)

  • As usual, our first advice is to test the game in DEMO mode before starting to play for real money.
  • Secondly, we hope you do not accidentally launch the MAX slot, thinking it is the same as the standard BerryBurst. As we have said above, the MAX version has higher volatility.
  • BerryBurst MAX slot is not suitable for playing with bonus money due to the poor balance keeping and therefore is not recommended for this purpose.
  • BerryBurst MAX slot is recommended for playing with real money; however, be attentive and monitor your balance. If large losses occur, it is advisable to leave the slot. 
  • With most of the high volatility slots, you need to rely on triggering the bonus rounds and then hoping that they will reward you enough. Not with BerryBurst MAX. Here you are, getting the wins straight from the base game! 
  • You should, however, not expect them to come super frequently. That’s why we advise you to don’t throw a ton of cash here. This is a game where you need to keep your bets nice and small, and the winning race will be steady. Keep your stakes close to 10 CAD to 20 CAD. It may not seem much, but you can still walk away with 1200x the initial bet (this happen to us during the test period at 20 CAD bet), which certainly is not too shabby!
