Starburst has a £50,000 jackpot up for grabs, and it’s simple to win. To have a go at winning the prize, you’ll need to bet the max amount of £100 and land 5x BAR symbols. Because Starburst pays BOTH ways on the payline, you’ll win a £25,000 payout TWICE.  


Starburst’s winning combinations start at three matching symbols and the only special symbol is the Starburst wild. You need to know that the paylines pay both ways. This means you’ll have more chances for a winning combination, as well as leading to some serious big wins. For example, five green gems have a payout of 50x but will pay twice thanks to the paylines paying both ways.

  • Coin sizes:  The minimum coin size is 0.1 on 10 lines, which means the minimum bet is £0.10. The maximum coin size is £1, and you can bet up to 10 coins on each line, meaning the maximum bet is £100.


Starburst has eight symbols in total, including the wild symbol. Remember that paylines can pay both ways so you can earn higher rewards, and even double your winning amount. The BAR symbol is the highest paying symbol with a max payout of 250x, followed by the 7 symbol with a planet in the background.

Next are different coloured gems, some worth more than others. The yellow gem is the most valuable and pays out 60x, next is the green gem with a max payout of 50x your bet. The red gem pays out a max of 40x your bet. The blue and purple gem both pay the same, a max of 25x your bet.

Symbol 3 on a Payline 4 on a Payline 5 on a Payline
Bar 250x 200x 50x
Planet 7 120x 60x 25x
Yellow Gem 60x 25x 10x
Green Gem 50x 20x 8x
Red Gem 40x 15x 7x
Blue Gem 25x 10x 5x
Purple Gem 25x 10x 5x


The Starburst wild is key to earning large payouts in this slot game. Not only will it substitute for all other symbols to form winning combinations, but it also has two more tricks up its sleeve. It’s an expanding wild, which means it will fill the whole reel to help create more winning combos, and when a wild symbol appears on the reels, it triggers a bonus spin! If another wild appears during the bonus spin round, you’ll earn another spin on top.

The wild symbol can only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4, which means you can earn up to 3 bonus spins in a row.


There are no scatter symbols in Starburst.

Software and Mobile Experience

Starburst by Netent, is a gorgeous game. The green interactive buttons contrast perfectly on the purple background and the symbols are expertly designed. The sound effects are a mix of outer space and retro, which blend perfectly with the interplanetary theme. Nothing is lost on mobile, but we do recommend that you rotate your phone sideways for the best experience, as this will allow the reels to take up nearly the full width of the screen. Plus, the spin button will also then be conveniently located next to your right thumb.

Starburst FAQ

  1. Can I Play Starburst on My Mobile?

    Yes, you can! Starburst’s mobile compatibility is actually one of the factors behind its popularity and incredible growth. It works perfectly on smaller screens as it doesn’t have any cumbersome features, icons, or visuals that get in the way and hinder your experience. It’s as smooth and slick as you could hope!

  2. What Is the Winning Percentage of Starburst?

    Starburst has an RTP of 96.1%. The “Return to Player” is a percentage that hints at a slot’s payout possibilities. The easiest way to understand it is that if you make 100 bets of £1 each, a 96.1% payout means you can expect a return of £96.10. Of course, this is an average based on many millions of spins. It’s extremely unlikely that you will get that exact return with just 100 spins, but it gives you an idea of how generous or otherwise a game is.

  3. Can I Unlock Bonus Spins Playing Starburst?

    Starburst doesn’t have a traditional bonus spins feature but it does have respins and these are unlocked in a similar way. The Expanding Wild symbol covers the reels and then locks in place while the rest of the reels spin. This can happen up to three times in a row and it’s usually during this feature that the biggest payouts are triggered.

  4. What Is the Maximum You Can Win Playing Starburst?

    The most you can win is 50,000 coins. The exact monetary value of that win will depend entirely on the coin value that you set before spinning the reels. Choose your stake carefully and remember to always gamble responsibly and within your budget.
