Starburst Xxxtreme

Everyone knows about Starburst. If you have even casually visited one or two online casinos or played a few slots online, you’ll know about this one. It’s simple, yes, but that is part of the charm. It has risen to become one of the biggest slot game hits ever – and still has that position today.

So, it’s about time we had a sequel. Starburst XXXTreme is out now from NetEnt, so we thought we’d check out the possibilities.

Here are the basic facts about Starburst XXXTreme slots

We have another five-reel game to play here, but this is a highly volatile one, so keep that in mind before you try the real thing upon release. The RTP is good at 96.26%, and we get nine lines to cover, so nothing too involved there.

The Starburst wilds return

The original game used expanding wilds that granted a respin whenever they appeared over the middle three reels. They return here as well, but instead of getting a respin for each, NetEnt has gone one better this time. We’ll still get the respin for each wild, but we also receive a random multiplier for anything won on that spin.

And how much are those random multipliers worth? The lowest one is 2x, but the values go as high as 150x the prize, so you’ll want to look for that one if you can.

Will you bet extra for some XXXTreme spins?

This is only going to appeal to players with a giant bankroll. That’s because the increased bet for these elements is high. The idea is that you bet 10x the usual amount to make sure you get one of the Starburst multiplier wilds on each spin, thereby guaranteeing the respin as well.

If you want two guaranteed Starburst wilds per spin, you’re going to need to wager 95x the standard amount. Obviously, those bets would give you better odds of some prizes, but there are no guarantees. Be careful with this feature before you try it.

Will Starburst XXXTreme be the new big hit?

And could it surpass the original? It retains the most famous elements that made the original a success. If you stick to the standard game, you still get the famous wilds and of course you’ll have the multipliers in action as well. For those elements alone, this slot release from NetEnt is certainly worth checking out.
