Spaceships are fully re-fuelled and ready for the re-launch of the “iconic” Starburst XXXtreme Slot as Rizk Casino and possibly all of our other Recommended Casinos will be rushing to add this slot on the release day of the 15th July 2021.
Whilst there is no doubting the notoriety and success of the original Starburst slot, which has won numerous awards, held top spots on casinos homepages for years and generally been completely overhyped and is still being touted as a player favourite today.
On the flip side the original Starburst is almost held in disregard by serious slot players and its close to being meme-worthy when suggested as a good slot to play, this, however, is a subjective opinion, so we will try to be as objective as possible in our review of this new machine, but definitely whilst gritting our teeth in the process!
It is probably a completely separate article in itself as to the reasons why casinos love Starburst (low-value free spins, low variance, low max win) and there is definitely some attraction for new players to a very simplistic online slot.
So what is new in the XXXtreme Version? Multipliers, bit fat juicy multipliers thanks to the Starburst Wild symbols in the range of x2, x3, x5, x10, x25, x50, x100, x150.
Whilst the highest multiplier is fixed at x150, the overall Multiplier value can go much higher if more than one of these Multiplier lands during a spin or even a Re-Spin.
Just with the introduction of these crazy multiplier values the overall volatility of this slot has been increased by a huge factor, given the max win on the original slot was in the region of 500x Stake.
Given current trends towards “bonus buys” there is also a new feature where you can activate XXXtreme Spins at a cost of 10x Stake for 1 guaranteed Starburst Wild symbol per spin, or even 95x Stake for 2 guaranteed Starburst Wild symbols per spin.
More details on these features later!
