The game that has captured the banners of all popular online casinos from the first day of its release is back. We no longer have to settle for Starburst’s numerous “copycats” as NetEnt has announced it new version!
The provider is not just bringing back one of the most popular games of all time, but transforming it into something even more epic. It seemed impossible, but it is! Striving to always remain one of the main newsbreakers in the world of gambling, NetEnt has updated the original Starburst, adding an improved mathematical model and increasing potential. Are you ready to face the XXXtreme version?
What’s new ?
The graphics of the original Starbursts in the new XXXtreme version remain the same, but the mesmerizing space action now takes place on 9 paylines instead of 10, and the two ways pays system has been removed.
A mathematical model with high volatility makes the mood of the game very unstable, completely opposite to its predecessor. Winning combinations will now only be paid out if at least 3 matching symbols appear on the leftmost reel.
The things that keep the whole narrow bridge between the original and the new version are not only graphics but also 7 payment symbols. Sparkling Gems remain the Minor symbols, while Bars and 7s remain the most generous. They can pay up to 50 times your total stake!
Wild: the main gameplay star
When it comes to features, you should be familiar with the Wild, the most useful and decisive symbol of the game. There are 2 betting options for XXXtreme Spins to choose from, the first of which offers 1 guaranteed Wild on each spin, increasing the stake by 10 times, and the second – 2 guaranteed Wilds in 1 spin, powering up the cost to 95x the base stake.
The whole game revolves around Wilds that appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. When they appear on any of these reels, they immediately Expand, filling the entire reel, and then reward them with a respin. As in the original.
The Expanding Wild seems to be nailed to its place during the feature, and if the new one lands, it also blocks and gives a second or third respin.
We left the most delicious for last. Ready for some great news? Starburst Wilds now has x2, x3, x5, x10, x25, x50, x100 and even x150 multipliers! And, if you get multiple Wilds, they add up together, which can lead to some insane wins.
And like the cherry on the cake, NetEnt has included the Random Wilds feature that can be activated after spin or respin. It can add from 1 to 3 Wild symbols to the reels.
If you are a fan of the original Starburst looking for some “serious” volatility, then try the XXXtreme version with the 200,000х win potential! We’d love to hear about your experience. Let us know in the comments!
