You already know that the new NetEnt slot for August 2018 is Berryburst, and the trailer for that very summery title has arrived. As expected, it’s a very laid back, colourful affair – with a handful of treats, including some special Wild symbols. Oh, and is that a 5×3 slot game with the Cluster Pays mechanic…!?
It’s Branded as Berryburst Though, not Berryburst: Cluster Pays…
Although the title is confirmed, the inclusion of NetEnt’s famed alternative payout function could easily have seen this slot called Berryburst: Cluster Pays.
The above teaser tailer shows this in detail, with players needing symbols to land either horizontally or vertically next to each other for a combo to be formed.
However, this is far from the first NetEnt Cluster Pays casino game to sneakily avoid using the payout mechanic’s name – with Emojiplanet, Twin Spin Deluxe and Lost Relics all housing the feature, but with no prior warning.
However, the Berryburst slot is NetEnt’s first venture that also utilises the classic 5-reel, 3-row structure – making it a unique entry into this collection of games.
When we first learnt this, we worried about whether there would be enough space for wins to be made regularly – considering that other Cluster Pays editions often expand the board considerably.
However, NetEnt have allayed those fears by confirming that a cluster of just five adjacent symbols is required for a coin win to land.
Automatic Expanding Wilds to Activate Re-Spins?
Take another look at the above video. Notice that all Wild symbols seem to expand to cover their reel?
We won’t know for sure whether this is correct until we get our hands on Berryburst for our own NetEnt slot game review, but it certainly looks as though this is a staple feature throughout.
Also, whenever a Wild symbol lands on the video, a Re-Spin commences.
Whether this is only the case for winning spins also remains to be seen, but it certainly shows that this creation has more to it than just the title of the first 5×3 Cluster Pays slot!
Plenty of Free Spins on Berryburst to Quench Your iGaming Thirst
Although the Berryburst slot trailer by NetEnt doesn’t show a Free Spins Bonus Round, there’s sure to be a flood of casino free spins to accompany its 23rd August release.
Being NetEnt’s big summer 2018 slot game, we’re expecting prominent online casinos to get involved – with some sweet promotions mixed together for a refreshing iGaming cocktail.
