Now in its 10th year of production, Starburst is a game enjoyed by millions of people since its launch in 2012. For a decade, Starburst has provided non-stop fun for players with its great bonus features, including the Wilds, eye-catching gemstones, exciting background music, sound effects and flashy lights that come up when a player hits a win or a jackpot.
The game, through its excellent design and special effects that give players the feeling of being in an arcade, transports players into outer space. With over 18 billion spins recorded in the past two and half years, Starburst remains a classic and beloved slot game.
Since its release in 2012, Starburst has added a sequel released in July 2021. The sequel, called Starburst XXXtreme, has enjoyed immense love and support from players. This new slot machine – Starburst XXXtreme, brought in a large number of new players Into the Starburst community with its amazing features such as its high volatility, incredible theme, XXXtreme spins, Starburst Wilds and other great features.
One of the things that have contributed to Starburst’s popularity is the game features that work seamlessly to create a perfect gaming experience for players. The game features a 96.09% RTP, low volatility, a 5×3 reel and rows and 10 paylines. The Win Both Ways and expanding Wilds are the two main highlights of the game, alongside the enhanced and tantalising potential to win big.
Another eye-catching aspect of Starburst is that the game comes designed with five beautiful gems. Each gem is shaped differently in varying colours, with the Gold bar giving the highest payout. Landing the 5 Gold bars aligned perfectly on a payline gives a major win.
To celebrate the Starburst decade-long incredible success, NetEnt went all out. The party included live music, a photo booth with a theme in honour of Starburst, and a 3D birthday cake, decorated with incredible fireworks and astronauts. Game developers and renowned gaming operators flocked in to celebrate this incredible milestone: a decade of excellence and service. The excited birthday participants also toasted a new chapter and another decade of excellent service to players all around the world.
According to Todd Haushalter, the Chief Product Officer at Evolution, Starburst is ready for the next phase. He said I quote: “The event was an incredible way of celebrating Starburst’s 10th anniversary. A decade-long run for a single slot game is an incredible achievement, and it’s been a top favourite with players ever since it was first launched. From the looks of things, that’s going to keep going, and going, and going. Starburst is the full package – an exciting, classic game that entertains you right from the start. I can’t wait to see what the next decade brings.”
