Many of the slot games we see these days are high tech affairs, featuring hi-res clips from blockbuster movies (we´re thinking of the likes of the Aliens Slot game from Net Ent here, or the Terminator 2 Video slot from Microgaming.
That´s all well and good, but sometimes we pander for something a bit more traditional and that´s where the Starburst slot from Net Ent comes in, with its retro feel and symbols like BARS, gems and 7s. This game has a real bright and breezy eighties feel to it. Try it out over at LeoVegas. It´s kind of a spacey disco slot with chill out music. Some of Net Ent´s games can seem over complicated (we are thinking of the Steam Tower slot machine in particular). Starburst is refreshingly simple.
This is a 5-reel, 10 payline arcade slot game, for want of a better description. The base game jackpot comes in at €/£/$2,500, and there are a suprising number of features for a retro slot including win-both-ways, re-spins, stacked symbols and the Starburst Wild feature. If you like your stacked symbols, you should also check out their Dracula Slot Machine, by the way.
The Starburst Wild feature is something that you don´t see around much. It will show on the 3 centre reels, and the Wild will fill an entire reel. You can also get 10 free spins at Royal Panda- it´s part of their welcome package to attract new players.
Also, the Wild not only swaps out for all other symbols to make winning combos, but also gives you a re-spin when one lands. If you get one in a re-spin, it will expand and stay in situ with any other expanded Wilds you have for up to three re-spins.
Win Both Ways
The cool thing about this slot is that you can win left to right AND right to left- quite an unusual feature, although we have seen it on quite a few bonus levels, but hardly ever in the base game. The Invisible Man Slot also has this feature (Net Ent again). This gives you more winning opportunities obviously.
There is no progressive jackpot on this game, and only 10 pay-lines (although it does pay out both ways), so you might think that this is a low paying slot. Well, you can theoretically win up to 50,000 coins which is $/£/€ 50,000 if you are betting with $/£/€1 coins which is not bad. You can bet as low as $/£/€ 0.10 per spin, but if you fancy yourself a high roller, it allows you to go all the wat up to $/£/€ 100 a spin.
