Starburst Visual And Audio
The Visual and audio of Starburst is one of the components which make the game special and enjoyable to play. According to the name of the game, it is easy to guess that the theme of Starburst is stars. Once you start playing you will see that the reels are spinning in the background of a galaxy with the purple planet and shining stars. The symbols of the slot are sparkling crystals which are not really connected with the theme of the game but they are very beautiful and cache our eyes with their lovely visuals. The symbols are very colorful and perfectly match the galaxy background. The audio of the game is very satisfying and makes the playing process much more entertaining.

The sound effects are also really cool and make the result of the music even stronger.

Starburst Rules – How Do You Play It?
Like most of the slot games, Starburst is very easy to play, but if you are a complete beginner, you can use this review as the Starburst guide. As I already said, Starburst has 3 rows and 5 reels, which is typical for classical slot games. You simply need to spin the reels with the spinning button which is below the reels to play. If you are too busy or just lazy to do that, you can use the autoplay button which is on the left side of the spinning button. With the autoplay button, you can choose the number of the spin from 10 to 1000 and it is noteworthy, that Starburst has one of the highest auto-play ranges. To win money, you have to get the winning combination and you will get the prize according to the symbols which are in your winning line.
Bet line pays out when it is in succession from both, leftmost to right and rightmost to left and it only pays the highest win per active bet line from both ways. Besides regular symbols, there is a wild card in the game which is a colorful star. This star can replace any other symbol in a winning combination, but it only appears in second, third, or fourth reels. If one or more Starburst Wild symbols appear anywhere, it activates the wild feature which, in fact, is a Starburst bonus.
Starburst Paytable – How Much Can You Win?
As we already mentioned, Starburst has 10 different pay lines, which come in the shapes of straight lines, triangles, zigzags, etc. Once you get the winning combination with one of the seven symbols, you will win the prize which depends on the symbol that gave you the winning line. Crystals – the sparkling rocks, are the lower symbols and come in five colors: purple, blue, red, green, and yellow. The purple and the blue crystal will give you 5 coins if you get the same 3 of those symbols in the right combination, 10 coins if you get 4, and 25 coins if you get 5 of them.
The red crystal has a bit more to offer and it will give you 7 coins if you get 3 of them in the winning line, 15 coins if you get 4, and 40 coins if you get 5 red crystals in a pay line. The next one is the green crystal, which will pay you 8 coins if you get 3 of them in the right combination, 20 coins if you get 4, and 50 coins if you are lucky enough to get 5 of them in a winning line. The last crystal is the yellow one, which will win you 10 coins if you get 3 of them in a winning combination, 25 coins if you get 4, and 60 coins if you get 5. Then there are higher symbols that have more coins to offer if you win with them. The 7’s symbol will pay you 25 coins if you get 3 of them in a pay line, 60 coins if you get 4, and 120 coins if you get 5 of these symbols.
Finally, we have a Bar symbol, which offers 50 coins if you get 3 of them in the right combination, 200 coins if you get 4, and 250 coins if you are lucky enough to get 5 of these symbols in a winning line. We have to say that, for the low volatility slot, the paytable is pretty generous.
Starburst Unique Features
As I said earlier, Starburst is a classical slot game and does not have many unique features to offer, but it still is one of the favorite slot games for many people. The only special feature of the game is the wild card, which as I already said can substitute any other symbols, and also, it can win you a Starburst free spin, which can help you win more money. During this free respin, the wild symbol expands to cover an entire reel, and other reels spin and it can bring you a win as big as 50 thousand coins. We can say that this is the bonus round of the game.
