Starburst is a fast-paced, action packed online slot game that ticks all the right boxes. A mesmerising 5-reel, ten payline slot game full of dazzling symbols and a rich arcade-like e-Gaming experience, it’s no wonder Starburst is as popular as ever with both new and experienced slot players. It is a simple game by modern slot standards, but there are still many chances to win — especially with the slot’s lucrative and expanding Starburst wilds, and free re-spin features. The sparkling jewels are utterly hypnotising and will gleam fantastically on your screen.

How to Play

Traditional slot games, which are thought to date back to the mid 1890s, have always been simple to play. But if you want to win big, whether you’re at a Las Vegas casino or are playing slots online, you’ll need to know what you’re doing to ensure your luck is really in.

Each slot games varies from the last, but all it usually takes is a couple of clicks to get started, then a single click to get the reels in motion — and it’s the same with Starbust.

Starburst is playable on both desktop and mobile devices, but you’ll need to create an account with BetVictor before doing so. If you don’t already have one then you can do so in three easy steps.

Once you’re ready to play Starburst and try your luck, simply place your bet — between 10p and £100 — and set the gleaming reels in motion to see if you’ve managed to win.

How Starburst Works

Starburst is one of the most popular slot games in the BetVictor Casino and with players across the world, which is testament to its simplicity and the overall feel of the game.

The 5-reel, 10-line slot game has ten different symbols and while it has minimal bonus features, there are plenty of opportunities to win big, especially with five matching symbols on a payline paying both ways — which is lucrative if five Gold Bars drop.

There is also an autoplay feature and a wide array of betting limits to add to the thrilling gameplay, which includes cosmic imagery and an intoxicating soundtrack.

With simple and uncomplicated rules, outstanding graphics and user experience, Starburst is an endearing and fun-to-play game offering higher payouts than most slot games.

Other Symbol Highlights

Starburst, unlike many other modern slot games, does not have a wealth of different features and add ons. Wilds are the main feature, which trigger stacked wilds and free respins.

Starburst Wilds 

The key bonus feature of Starburst is its wilds (signified by a Starburst symbol) which can drop randomly on reels 2, 3 or 4.

Expanding Wilds 

Wilds can expand to fill a whole reel, before locking and then triggering a free respin.

Free Respins

Free respins are triggered by wilds expanding to a whole reel. If another wild lands on the respin, another respin is triggered — with three being the maximum number of respins.
