Starburst XXXtreme takes the classic online slot game by NetEnt to the next level. For circa a decade, slot game Starburst has made it into many players’ hearts and topped the lists of popular games at many online casinos.

As such, Starburst does not come with many mod cons. It’s a simple game based in a cosmic setting with starburst wilds and the potential to win both ways. There are no free spins bonus rounds or any extras.

So this time around, NetEnt has decided to spice up this ol’ classic with updated features and upgrades. Though in Starburst, you had the chance to win a whopping 500x your bet, you can now achieve a supreme 200,000x your wager… just wow.

As such, when it comes to the looks of the game, nothing much has changed. The game is set up across 5 reels and three rows. Instead of having 9 fixed pay lines, it now has 10.

The biggest difference we could spot in this game is the volatility. Starburst XXXtreme is now highly volatile. The pay both ways has also been eliminated from the equation, so you will only be able to hit wins if you have at least three identical symbols from left to right on a payline. This already deducts points in our books!

The same sparking jewels are the lowest paying symbols in this game, followed by the 7s and Bars which pay slightly higher. To paint you a clearer picture, the 7s and Bars, can pay between 20 and 50x your wager for a five of a kind combination.

The RTP stands at an average of 96.26% which is not bad at all.

Starburst XXXtreme bonus features

Similar to its predecessor, Starburst XXXtreme does not come with many features. You can find information about the ones available below:

Wild Symbol

The Starburst symbol acts as a Wild symbol in this game. It can land on reels 2, 3 and 4. What makes this wild symbol special is the fact that it expands to cover the entire reel and also triggers a respin.

When it expands, you will also be awarded a random multiplier, which can be anything between 2x and 150x.

Random Wild

When you trigger a respin, a Random Wild can be randomly activated. When this happens, between one and three wild symbols will be randomly added to reels 2, 3 or 4.

Starburst XXXtreme Spins

You have the option to activate the Starburst XXXtreme spins, where you are given the choice of two different modes. These modes trigger a large number of wild symbols to land anywhere on the reels.

What makes this different is that in addition to them peppering the reels 2, 3 or 4, they also stay put until you deactivate the function. Here are the two options you can opt for:

  • 10x your wager: You are guaranteed one wild symbol per spin
  • 95x your wager: You are guaranteed two wild symbols per spin

Starburst XXXtreme RTP

The Starburst XXXtreme RTP stands at an average of 96.23%. This is a highly volatile game, so you can’t expect wins on a regular basis. You will hit a substantial win every once in a while.

Verdict

NetEnt has been in recent years having a little hit or miss moments when it comes to its game offerings. Whether you love Starburst or not, will determine the likelihood of you liking this highly volatile version of this classic game.

Whether it is its cosmic soundtrack, its mesmerising colours and effects or maybe, its simple format that is reminiscent of classic fruit machines, Starburst XXXtreme might have just what you’ve been waiting for.

We would have loved to see more features, and perhaps a free spins bonus round. Although they have worked on a newer version, it does not bring anything new to the table, except its volatility and reduced number of pay lines.

The Starburst wild symbol can spice things up in an otherwise dull game. Just like in the original game, the wild feature expands and provides you with a respin when it pops up on the reels.

Without any bonus features or free spins round, the Starburst wild symbol is the best thing going for this game, since it can also trigger a random multiplier going all the way up to 150x.

The only way to hit the prolific 200,000x your wager is by combining bars, respins and multipliers. Don’t count too much on hitting this though.

While the original spirit of the game stays, we were hoping that Starburst XXXtreme would have upped the game and joined 2021 with a different outlook and more features. It may be highly volatile, but there is very little to entice new players to join the bandwagon.
