NetEnt have taken their infamous Starburst slot and given it a fruity twist with cluster pays and expanding wilds in this Berryburst Max slot machine.
A medium to high variance game with bigger wins than the standard Berryburst slot, this game comes packed with the same features and ways to win.
You get 5×3 reels filled with mouth watering fruits like limes, oranges, raspberries and blackcurrants as the high paying symbols mixed with lower paying hearts, diamonds, spades and clubs.
If you play with the sound on, on every spin it’s like the fruit is spinning through a concoction of fruit juice. A nice touch but doesn’t really add much to the overall game play.
What you will be interested in here though is those cluster pays.
So much like in NetEntertainment’s Aloha Cluster Pays and Legend of Shangri La slots, this Berryburst Max game comes with cluster pays.
Instead of paying just from left to right or right to left across a specified payline, these cluster pays pay when 5 or more of the same symbol are touching each other vertically, diagonally or horizontally.
The fact that all symbols also come stacked gives you the chance to fill the whole screen for some epic 15 symbol wins. That’s if you’re lucky of course, as in our experience you can expect smaller wins to be the norm.
What brings this online and mobile casino slot alive though is the expanding wilds.
The golden W symbol is the wild and when it appears on any of the five reels it will expand to cover the reel its on.
When it does if it creates a win you’ll get paid for that win, but you’ll also get a re-spin where the wild reel stays in place.
If that creates a win you’ll also get paid for that too. If you find another wild on another reel then the original wild reel stays sticky as well as the new one and you’ll get another re-spin.
In theory you can get all 5 reels wild and win 10,000 coins. That unfortunately always feels out of reach in this higher variance version of the game where the return to player rate is lower at 96.23% compared to 96.56% in the lower variance game.
The expanding wilds add some thrills that’s for sure, but is it better than Starburst it’s muse? Perhaps not.
Fans of simple fruit filled casino games will no doubt enjoy a few spins here.
The only problem we found is that the wins don’t come that often and even when they do they aren’t as big as other high volatility games from the likes of Play’n GO and Red Tiger Gaming.
The betting range will give all slots fans a chance to take a few spins and try out the game thanks to a 0.10 min bet and 200 per spin max bet.
If you’re after a graphically beautiful online or mobile slot game where you don’t have to think about the wins then go for it.
If you’re on a budget the lowever variance Berryburst might be more to your liking otherwise go Max and see if you can line up those 5 wild reels and that big win that’s waiting.Play Now at Casumo »
