Strap Yourself in, This May Be a Bumpy Ride as We Take on The “Iconic” Starburst XXXtreme Slot!
Spaceships are fully re-fuelled and ready for the re-launch of the “iconic” Starburst XXXtreme Slot, Rizk Casino and all our Recommended Casinos will be rushing to add this new online slot on the release day of the 15th July 2021.
There is no doubting the notoriety and success of the original Starburst slot, which has won numerous awards, held top spots on casinos homepages for years and generally been completely overhyped and is still being touted as a “player favourite” today.
The reality is that the original Starburst is almost held in disregard by serious slot players and it’s close to holding meme-worthy status when suggested as a good slot to play, this, however, is a subjective opinion held by hardcore slots players, we will try to be as objective as possible in our review of this new machine, but definitely whilst gritting our teeth a little in the process!
It’s a complete article in itself as to the reasons why casinos love Starburst (low-value free spins, low variance, low max win) and there is definitely some attraction for new players as it’s a very simplistic online slot feature-wise.
So what is new in the XXXtreme Version? Multipliers, big fat juicy multipliers thanks to the Starburst Wild symbols awarded randomly in the range of x2, x3, x5, x10, x25, x50, x100, x150.
There’s has been a slight alteration in the maximum number of paylines down to 9 (fixed), but the same 5×3 reel layout remains, the “pay both ways” functionality has been removed, adopting a more standard left to right payline structure which made adjusting to this new version confusing as we were expecting the exact same set up as the original slot machine.
Visually of course this is definitely still “Starburst” with a deep red more volatile colour scheme hinting at the volatile fiery nature, the reel symbols are all instantly recognisable as you would expect from a sequel.
Whilst the highest multiplier is fixed at x150, the overall Multiplier value can go much higher if more than one of these Multiplier lands during a spin or even a Re-Spin and are added together.
Just with the introduction of these crazy multiplier values the overall volatility of this slot has been increased by a huge factor, given the max win on the original slot was in the region of 500x Stake and is now capped at a staggering 200,000 x.
Given current trends towards “Bonus Buys” there is also a new feature where you can activate XXXtreme Spins mode at a cost of 10x Stake for 1 guaranteed Starburst Wild symbol per spin, or even 95x Stake for 2 guaranteed Starburst Wild symbols per spin.
More details on these new features later!
