Colorful crystals, sevens (7), and BAR symbols appear as you spin the wheel. The maximum payout for a winning combination of BAR symbols is 2,500 coins.

The payout percentage is 96.1%.

Specifications and play instructions

There are 10 different ways to win in this game. In Starburst, the player is unable to alter the initial number of them before each spin. The total bet (Bet) so has no effect on any bets save the line bet (Level).

In Starburst, winning combos consist of at least three identical symbols. All winning combinations across all lines are highlighted after each spin, and the total amount won for those combinations is added up and deposited into the account. Prize combos are more likely when identical symbols are tallied both lefts to right and right to left. Both symbols must be on the same reel, and either the first or fifth reel must be used.

To determine a combination's payoff, multiply the line bet (Level) by the symbol payout factor (found in the paytable's I tab). The Win box shows the cumulative win for the turn.

Starburst slot machine's symbols and odds

Starburst's star-shaped wild symbol is the game's most prominent bonus feature. You can only see him on reels 2, 3, and 4. The star will "transform" into the necessary missing sign to complete a combination if it appears on a line with numerous duplicate symbols.

The Starburst Wilds bonus is activated whenever a wild emerges in play. When a star symbol emerges, it locks into place and eliminates any remaining openings, making it more likely that a winning combination will be collected. After the bonus is added up, a new chance to win is given away for free. If more wilds arrive, they will fill the reels, triggering an additional respin. After three consecutive repetitions, the wild icons will disappear from the playing surface.

Typical Starburst NetEnt symbols and their corresponding payouts are as follows:

  • purple and blue crystal, 5, 10, 25;
  • orange crystal, 7, 15, 40;
  • green crystal, 8, 20, 50;
  • yellow crystal, 10, 25, 60;
  • seven (7), 25, 60, 120;
  • BAR, 50, 200, 250.

The prize is only awarded for the priciest prize line combination.


Starburst is a staple of the 5-reel, 3-row slots that NetEnt is known for. The machine's key selling points are its user-friendliness, high RTP (96.1%), and bonus spins (when the wild symbol appears). The graphics and audio are also of high good quality.

The probabilities of receiving a prize go up regardless of whatever direction one counts the winning combinations. The Starburst Wilds and the RTP make it simple to increase the bankroll.
