Explore a galaxy of shimmering gems and unlock their treasures with Starburst by Microgaming.  The game’s transparent reels are set against a purplish-hazy deep-space scene. The reels are populated by chunky, colourful gemstones and the animations are bright and eye-catching like the rest of the game. This slot only has a single bonus feature, but it is packed with plenty of winning potential and you have the added benefit of being able to win both ways. Use the expanding Sticky Wilds Re-spins to scour the stars for your ultimate prize.

Game Symbols

  • The slot’s lower value symbols are purple, blue, orange, green and yellow gems.
  • The higher value symbols are a lucky 7 and a BAR symbol
  • A multicoloured star-shaped gem is the starburst wild and substitutes for all symbols to make winning combinations

Bonus Features

Expanding Sticky Wilds

If a Starburst Wild symbol lands on reels 2, 3 or 4, aside from its function as a regular wild, the symbol will expand to cover the entire reel, stay locked in place and trigger a respin.  You can trigger up to a maximum of 5 respins if further wild symbols land.

Our Verdict

Starburst online slot is a triumph of simplicity and gameplay and an enduring title in Microgaming’s catalogue.  In addition to its bonus features, the slot boasts a ‘win both ways’ mechanic which allows you to win left to right and right to left, making the base game equally lucrative to the bonus mode.  The game's visual appeal is almost as much of a draw card as its gameplay.  Bright neon graphics and animations fit well together to create a nebulous space-like theme that is enjoyable regardless of it being a bit vague.

There isn’t a massive payoff for mastering this slot. At 500x your stake, the highest possible win won’t allow you to quit your job for a life of luxury, but the wins do come quite often and provide you with an optimum level of entertainment for a medium volatility slot.
