Starburst slot


PlayOJO’s Starburst slot is one of the most popular games ever. Created by NetEnt in 2013, its design and unique bonus were an instant hit, and Starburst is still wowing players today.

What we think about Starburst

“Many slots have tried to copy Starburst’s genius, but a decade later it still stands out.”

Is Starburst the right slot for you?

Starburst is a 5-reel, 3-row video slot with 10 fixed paylines, but because they pay both ways – that’s right-to-left and left-to-right – you get 20 ways to win.

Thanks to NetEnt’s Touch mobile version, it’s a simple yet stunning slot that’s perfect for playing casino on your mobile. With super simple controls, particularly on mobile where you get a nice finger-sized SPIN button, our Starburst slot game is so easy to play. Everything is sharp and shiny, and it all looks amazing in HD. Even the little backwards step as the reels prepare to spin is a nice touch.

In terms of design and gameplay, the Starburst slot machine is 1 part Bejewelled, 1 part Candy Crush with a sprinkle of retro-futuristic space dust. And with wins of up to 50,000 coins, Starburst delivers everything your 21st century gamer needs.

One important factor to remember about the Starburst online slot is the volatility. Officially, it’s a low volatility slot, which means you will see more low value wins and few if any extremely big wins. If you prefer high variance slots with less frequent wins but much bigger prizes, games like Book of Dead may be a better bet for you.


PlayOJO’s Starburst slot game is unique in so many ways, not least its two features, Win Both Ways and Starburst Wild.

Win Both Ways

This is a feature we’d never seen before, and we loved it instantly! It does it exactly what it says – base game wins can land from left-to-right as well as right-to-left. That means double the chance to win!

Starburst Wilds

Wilds are the centre of the Starburst galaxy and once you’ve hit them, you’ll see why. The iconic Starburst Wild symbol can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. When they appear, they cover all 3 positions on the reel. They trigger 1 Free Spin – called a re-spin – and the reel locks in place.

Get a reel-full of Wilds and the whole game ‘powers up’, the reel goes full rainbow and just in case you still weren’t sure if this was the super mega moment you’d been hoping for, it’ll rain stars too.

Starburst Slot Free Spins can be retriggered too. If more Wilds appear on other reels, more can be retriggered up to a maximum of 3 re-spins.

What the experts say

“A decade long run for a single slot game is an incredible achievement. Starburst is the full package – an exciting, classic game that entertains you right from the start.”

Todd Haushalter, Chief Product Officer at Evolution

Starburst Slingo

I’ve always had a soft spot for Slingo games and was pretty pleased when they released this one. If you’re familiar with Slingo slots, you’ll love the addition of the Starburst Wild, which lets you mark off any number in the column above, but also gets you a respin. The prize ladder offers up guaranteed winning spins on the original slot using increasingly valuable symbols.


This 90’s video game version of Starburst from Light & Wonder was released a couple of years after Starburst. If you want a Starburst-style experience but with a higher RTP and a more traditional Free Spins feature (though with 30 extra Wilds added to the reels during Free Spins), Starmania is well worth a look.

My verdict

NetEnt say their Starburst video slot is an all-time classic and we’re not quibbling! Like our iconic Gonzo Quest slot, it’s the complete package; A clean, crisp design, an astronomical Wild feature and the potential for stellar wins. I give very few slots 5 stars, but this one is a dead cert for the maximum score.

If you'd like to play this Starburst game or any of PlayOJO’s epic slots collection, sign up and you’ll also get free spins on a top slot when you make your 1st deposit (terms apply). You’ll also get you money back on every spin with OJOplus.


What is the Starburst RTP?

For the latest Starburst slot RTP, we recommend you create a PlayOJO account, load up the game and check the game rules. PlayOJO players also get money back on every game when they play the Starburst UK slot online with our OJOplus feature.

Can I play the Starburst slot for free?

There is a free version of the Starburst game for players who create a PlayOJO account. Simply sign up and search for our Starburst slot, then choose the Try For Free option to access the Starburst demo. There’s no limit to how many free Starburst spins you can enjoy either.

What other Starburst slots are there?

Almost 10 years after the original Starburst slot machine was released, Slingo Originals released their Starburst Slingo game, combining a classic Slingo format with free spins on the Starburst slot. In the same year, NetEnt also released a sequel, Starburst XXXtreme with a 200,000X max win.
