Are you looking for an action-packed, high-energy, mesmerizing slots game? Starburst may be exactly what you are looking for. This game incorporates both an arcade-like atmosphere and vibrant colored jewels to create engaging animations for all players. This 5-reel, 3-row slot game has 10 bet lines you can play, which increases the excitement offered by the video slot game. As you spin the reels and watch the animations come to life, you may come to appreciate the innovation of NetEnt, the game’s designer. Most players enjoy seeing the win presentation light up the screen.
If you are at all familiar with video slot games, starting game play will be easy. There are three different ways you can start. First, you can set your coin values and bet levels for each bet line, and then hit the spin button. This allows you to customize your bet each time you spin the reels. Playing the game with the spin button allows you to enjoy each spin and take your time. The max bet button, on the other hand, gives you an easy way to make the highest bet allowed at your current coin value, which speeds up the game and increases the risk. If you want to speed up the game even more, you can use the autoplay button, which plays the game automatically for a predetermined number of rounds at your current bet level and coin value. With so many ways to start the game, players are sure to get the winning experience they are looking for.
The winnings for this game are fairly standard, yet there is a twist. Each bet line only pays out once, but the highest active win will be awarded if there are more than one winning combinations on a line. In order to have an active win, you must have successive wins starting from the leftmost or rightmost reel. In other words, if reel two has a win, but reel one does not, none of the wins are active unless reel five has a win. Most games only pay out from left to right, so Starburst really maximizes your chances to get a big payout. If you have multiple wins on different lines, the payout is added together. To increase your chances of winning, the Starburst Wild, which appears on reels two, three and four, can be substituted for all of the symbols on the reels. You can see specific information on the payout for each winning combination by reviewing the paytable. This game has a return-to-player rate of 96.1 percent.
No video slots game will be mesmerizing without fun-filled features. One of the most talked about features for Starburst is the special wild. When one or more Starburst Wild appears on reels two, three or four, the wild symbol expands to cover the entire reel. This increases wins, but as an added bonus the expanded wild stays in place while the other reels re-spin. This special re-spin feature only ends when a new Starburst Wild symbol does not appear. Because there are wild symbols on three different reels, you have the chance to get a total of three re-spins during this special play.
