NetEnt, one of the most prominent iGaming providers across the industry, has celebrated the tenth anniversary of Starburst. The iconic galactic adventure was released a decade ago, and fans worldwide still enjoy it. Going to the outer hemisphere has never been so enjoyable, with Wilds, arcade-like effects, unique sounds and shiny gems. This game has become a hit across the entire iGaming industry, with 18 billion spins over the years. It will indubitably remain timeless with thrilling animations, excellent graphics and solid payout potential.
Starburst’s compelling nature becomes evident from the first spin, even though it virtually has no features. Starburst Wilds show up on the three middle reels, expand to cover the entire reel and remain sticky for a respin. If other Wild lands, both of them do the same, with the maximum of three consecutive respins. The gameplay may not sound particularly thrilling, especially for the most popular game in the industry, but one can only experience the appeal first-hand. It is a low-to-medium volatility slot with an RTP of 96.09%, slightly surpassing the industry standard. It has a broad betting scope, starting from $0.1, with the maximum possible wager of $100.
Sequel to Remember
Since its initial release, the game has got a highly memorable sequel, Starburst XXXTreme. Launched in July 2021, the new game brought all the beloved features of the original and added their own. They include much higher volatility that delivers a space adventure offering an unmatched playing experience. Add spectacularly hefty wins to the mix, and you have a phenomenal game on your hands. It has also brought the debut of XXXTreme Spins, which offers enormous prizes and includes the buy option. In this case, they guarantee the appearance of Wilds when triggered. Excellent winning possibilities make this release enormously attractive for punters around the globe.
Starburst has a perfectly retro feel to it that will immediately take players down memory lane, reminding them of more carefree times. Uncomplicated and crisp visuals accompanied by a fantastic jazzy soundtrack make up an exceptional audio-visual presentation. While today it might look modest, punters should take into account how amazing it all looked back in 2012. Waves of nostalgia are sure to overwhelm everyone who ever tried this one out ten years ago. It was something never seen before in the iGaming industry. Moreover, it has preserved its own cult status even today.
Celebration in Style
Live music, a birthday cake, fireworks, astronaut performers and themed photo booths were all there for the celebration. The developers and operators have come together to toast another successful decade. Todd Haushalter, CPO at Evolution, has said decade-long popularity is a phenomenal achievement for any game. It has been a fan favorite since its initial release, offering the full package to its players. Starburst is a thrilling, classic game with a fantastic atmosphere that keeps punters entertained throughout the entire duration. Everyone hopes the next decade will bring even more exciting things.
