Starburst is one of the most played NetEnt slots of all time, and its futuristic deep space theme is likely to appeal to players from all walks to life.

The game captures your imagination with its shiny gemstone symbols and multi-coloured wild symbol, the latter of which plays a big part in the slot. There are many reasons why so many online slots fans love Starburst, and one of the key ones is that you can create winning combinations both ways across the reels.

Another is that the wild symbol can expand to fill one or more reels before triggering a re-spin feature which allows you to create back-to-back wins. The top prize is worth an enviable 50,000 times your bet, and it could become yours when you take this game for a spin with wagers of 10p up to £100. It's a low-volatility slot, which means that winning combos occur pretty regularly, and the RTP (Return to Player Rate) also provides good value-for-money at 96.10%.

Appearance and Sound Effects

Unless your name's Captain Tim Peake, you will probably never get to experience the tranquillity of floating in outer space, watching stars and meteors slowly passing across your line of vision while watching the sun come up over Planet Earth beneath you. This is the exceptional view that the Starburst slot affords you, and the ambient, futuristic music that accompanies the game makes the playing experience even more extraordinary.

The reels are designed with a 3D effect to make the graphics even more realistic, and as you begin to play, you'll also be wide-eyed in amazement as gigantic gemstones speed around the reels. You can create wins using sapphires, amethysts, yellow quartz, emeralds, topazes, multi-coloured stars, 7s, and bars.

Bonuses and Special Features

Starburst comes with one special symbol called the Starburst Wild, which can substitute for all other symbols to make winning combinations. The wilds can only appear on the second, third, and fourth reels, but they can also land stacked for improved winning opportunities.

Whenever a wild symbol comes into view, it expands to fill the whole reel before triggering a re-spin. If more wilds appear, you get another re-spin up to a maximum of five.


Starburst uses five reels, three rows of symbols, and ten fixed paylines, and has a high RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 96.1%. The game allows you to create winning combinations from both left to right and from right to left.

Mobile Compatibility

The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.

Our Verdict

Starburst easily ranks as one of the most popular NetEnt slots around, and perhaps, the secret of its success is the simplistic gameplay combined with the innovative Starburst Wilds Feature which can award up to five re-spins with stacked wild symbols.
