Testers opinion about Starburst Slot
Starburst slot has a short cycle and a low dispersion of the winning. Note, that this machine is showing "win both ways" gameplay. It is still very popular in online casinos and creates a massive prize pool for winnings. The game keeps the balance and not the worst choice for wagering (5.97 from 10). The probability of any hit during the next spin reaches 22.46%. If you`re lucky enough to catch three wild symbols, you will get two big winnings (triggering spin and respin with wilds). It seemed to me that, the best total amount to bet is €10 per spin. Not best idea to highroll here (especially in small casinos). During the real money testing my biggest winning was 438x. Try to do 30-50 test spins at low stake to determine the mood of the machine before launching the game for the real money. The potential of winning is low here, but in Starburst you can play via bigger stakes (like 1/50 of your balance) and look on the behaviour of the machine during first 30-50 spins.

Description of the slot machine
What attracts so many gamblers to Starburst video slot? Maybe it is the gameplay or wild symbols which cover the entire reel vertically and make another spin. Let`s take a look at its appearance.
Starburst slot is made in retro style. There are classic symbols of BAR and 777 which were used in Vegas in the 80s. I think by creating this slot, the developers did not expect it to grow so wildly popular. Beautiful, well-drawn characters and fast gameplay make the game pleasant and not tiring. Win both ways and wild symbols covering the entire reel vertically with free re-spin, making the game fun. Sound effects as always are at the top.
Gameplay is exciting and straightforward. In this video slot, there are no additional bonus and the free spins features.
- A feature of Starburst video slot is wild symbols. They can only appear on the second, third and fourth reels. With one or more wild symbols, it replaces the entire vertical reel. After that respin comes (for free) with a fixed reel on which are wild symbols.
- If during free re-spin another wild symbol drop, both of the reels are fixed and will come to another re-spin with 2 wild reels. The maximum number of possible re-spins is three and the reels 2, 3 and 4 will be wilds.
- It is worth noting that the biggest winning will be paid if you are lucky enough to catch two or three wild symbols in one spin. The maximum payout per single spin is limited to 50,000 coins.
- The most coveted symbols are wilds, so they give us free spin and increase the chances of getting a big winning.
- Bar symbol is the premium one. For 5 bars we get 250 coins.
- If you will be lucky to collect 5 Sevens, it pays 120 coins.
- Yellow stones give 60 coins, green - 50, and red - 40, blue and purple for 25 coins.
