Starburst XXXtreme Slot Free Play
How To Play It
A regular wager in Starburst XXXtreme will be worth anywhere from $0.10 to $50.
There is the option to pay for guaranteed wilds, but you will need 10x the regular stake for a spin with 1 Starburst Wild, and 95x the stake for one with 2 wilds.
In exchange for your wager, you get 5 reels and 9 active lines. They pay left to right, while the original paid both ways and had 10 lines.
So, are you wondering how exactly you can turn the very popular Starburst slot into an XXXtreme variant? It turns out, that the answer has a lot to do with big multipliers, while also reducing the number of potential combinations (there are now 9 lines instead of 10, and they don’t pay both ways any more).
As before, there are expanding wild symbols which will land on reels 2-4. When they show up there, they take over their reel, and then they lock in place, and trigger one respin. If you get more wilds on the other reels, then they too become sticky, and additional respins trigger.
They added some impressive multipliers to each of those wilds, though it’s going to be a random value for each one. Up to three multipliers can be obtained this way, and added together, for a boost to prizes of up to 450x. The values possible for each of the wild multipliers are at 2x, 3x, 5x, 10x, 25x, 50x, 100x, and 150x.
There is also a way to get these wilds through a random feature. It triggers at any point, following regular spins or respins, and can give you up to 3 expanding wilds.
The benefit of the new XXXtreme variant is the top jackpot that the game can deliver. It’s worth 200,000x the stake, meaning that you can claim one of the biggest prizes that you will find in a slot machine. To get it though, you’re going to have to endure the punishingly high volatility of this slot. It’s not going to be fun for a lot of its players, even though it has a 96.26% RTP.
Starburst XXXtreme is definitely an improvement over the original, but only if you’re looking to go after the top prize, and you’re ready to accept the downside of the very high volatility. For a lot of people, the original Starburst remains a better option, even though it’s nowhere near as exciting to play.
