During the Starburst multiplier respin feature, you can earn multipliers up to 150x per spin. When multiple multipliers appear on a single sin, they are added to together. NetEnt has put a 200,000x cap on wins during this feature.


Starburst winning combinations start at three matching symbols and the only special symbol is the Starburst wild. Unlike the original Starburst game, which paid out wins going in both directions, Starburst only pays out wins going from left to right.

  • Coin sizes: There are 39 stake sizes to choose from. The minimum bet is £0.10 and the maximum bet is £50. All payouts are based on the total set size.
  • Symbols: Starburst has eight symbols in total, including the wild symbol. The BAR symbol is the highest paying symbol with a max payout of 50x, 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 6x, next is the green gem with a max payout of 5x your bet. The red gem pays out a max of 4x your bet. The blue and purple gem both pay the same, a max of 3x your bet.

The Starburst wild symbol can appear on the middle three reels. Not only will it substitute for all regular symbols, but it can expand to cover the entire reel and trigger a respin. The wild symbol also awards a random multiplier between 2x and 150x.

When more than one multiplier appears on a single spin, they are added together to create an even larger payout.


There are no scatter symbols in Starburst.


The Random Wilds feature is a randomly activated feature that can take place after any spin or respin. Up to three Starburst wild symbols are added to reels 2, 3, and 4.

You can increase your odds of triggering this feature by turning on the Activate XXXtre Spins. There are two options, for 10x your bet you will be guaranteed one Starburst XXXtreme wild symbol and for 95x your bet, you’re guaranteed at least two wilds.

Software Provider

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 slots on my mobile?

Yes, you can! Starburst’s mobile compatibility is 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 games?

Starburst XXXtreme has an RTP of 96.26%. 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 96.26% payout means you can expect a return of £96.26. 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. On the other hand, the classic Starburst slot game has an RTP of 96.01%.

3. Can I unlock bonus spins playing Starburst games?

Starburst games don’t have a traditional bonus spins feature, but it does have respins and these are unlocked in a similar way. You can increase your odds of triggering this feature when you press the Activate XXXtreme Spins button, for example.


When you consider everything that Starburst online slots have to offer, from its rapid reels to its glittering graphics and high RTP, it’s easy to see why the game is so popular with players in the UK.
