Wilds of Starburst
Starburst Wilds are another feature carried over from the first Starburst that remains pretty much unchanged. As you see below, the wilds have the ability to fill spaces on the reels and can take the place of any symbol, helping to increase your chances of getting a win.
These wilds appear on reels 2, 3 or 4 and act as substitutes for all other symbols. Each one that drops rewards the player with a Re-spin and (new to Starburst XXXtreme) a randomised multiplier. If any other Wilds should land, the re-spins will behave exactly the same as with the previous Wilds symbol. If you’re lucky enough to fill an entire reel with Starburst Wilds, this reel remains locked for the following spins.
Following a spin or a re-spin, a Random Wild can gift the player between 1 and 3 Starburst Wilds. Each of these will unlock a valuable multiplier at random. The multipliers on offer are: x2, x3, x5, x10, x25, x50, x100 and, the biggy, x150.
Are you a fan of Buy Bonuses? If so, then you’ll certainly want to know about ‘XXXtreme Spins‘.
These spins are another one of the new additions that Starburst XXXtreme brings to the table. This is a paid-for add on (basically a Buy Bonus) that guarantees the emergence of Starburst Wilds on the next spin. In order to unlock these, you’ll need to spend 10x your current bet for 1 Starburst Wild or, if you want 2 Starburst Wilds, you’ll have to offer up 95x your bet level. The thing to note here, though, is that after activating the XXXtreme Spins, the option will stay selected for your next spins too until you click the Deactivate XXXtreme Spins button. Be careful with this one, it can catch you out!
How To Play Starburst XXXtreme
Although the added multipliers do ramp up the tension nicely, underneath it all Starburst is actually a pretty standard set-up for a video slot game. There are 7 symbols that pay, plus the Starburst Wild, all running through the 5 Reels, 3 Rows, and 9 Paylines. If you’ve played any sort of slot game in the past twenty years or so, you’ll already know exactly what you’re dealing with here.
