NetEnt’s hit slot Starburst has been given a Slingo makeover! This game comes with a wide array of fun bonus features and lots of gameplay details that are sure to be appreciated by fans of the original Starbust slot and Slingo aficionados alike.
Theme And Graphics
Any fan of NetEnt’s original Starburst slot will be thrilled to see that Starburst Slingo stays completely faithful in terms of design. With the same music, symbols and general aesthetic overall, this game is the perfect Starburst remake.
RTP And Variance
The RTP of Slingo Starburst is 96.66%. This is based on the optimal strategy.
In the game’s paytable, there is a page for the Best Strategy, which helps you get as close to the named RTP as possible.
It states that when you get a Wild or Super Wild, you should always place it in a position that will get you closer to a Slingo. You should also aim to place your wilds in positions that can gain you multiple Slingos.
How To Win
In Slingo Starbust, you’re presented with a 5×5 grid that features random numbers scattered across it. Along the bottom of the grid is a set of reels that spins, displaying numbers.
If a number appears on the reel that matches a number in the same column in the Slingo grid, it will be marked off with a star. When you’ve marked off all number in a Slingo Win Line, you’ll win a prize.
Along with the numbers, there are other items that can appear as you spin the Slingo reel:
- Purple Gems: landing three purple gems will provide you with an instant cash prize
- Super Wilds: allow you to mark off any number on the grid
- Starbust Wilds: allow you to mark off any number in the above column
- Blockers: these symbols do nothing
- Free Spin: give you one more spin
Extra Spin Wheel
After each spin, there is a chance that the Extra Spin Wheel will appear. It’s a gamble-style wheel and if it lands in the Extra Spin slice, you’ll get another chance to spin the reels.
There is also a prize bonus meter along the left side of the reels. Depending on how many Slingos you get, you’ll climb the meter which will provide you with the chance to land Win Spins.
A Win Spin is a spin on the original Starburst slot game. Depending on which symbol is shown, the spin you have on Starburst is guaranteed to have a win involving that symbol. Obviously, getting a full house and having a win spin with the wild is the best outcome.
Once you’ve used up all of your initial spins, you’ll have the opportunity to purchase Extra Spins. The cost to spin again depends how big of a Win Spin is on offer and how many spaces you have yet to fill in on the grid.
What really sets this game apart, though, is the actual inclusion of a slot game. In Rainbow Riches Slingo and Fluffy Favourites Slingo, winning only takes you to one of the bonus rounds from the original game; Slingo Starburst is much different, as you actually get a spin on the reels.
What’s more – that spin has a guaranteed win. It’s a really nice touch that makes this the ideal game for slots fans who also enjoy the occasional Slingo game.
