ALL ABOUT BERRYBURST SLOT
In some quarters, BerryBurst is being touted as the follow up to one of the biggest slot games of all times – NetEnt’s free spins and bonus fodder, Starburst. And there are definitely some similarities here, aside from the name. BerryBurst is all about the Wilds and the Re-Spins that keep triggering and can lead to a full screen and a big payout.
On the other hand, this is a cluster pays game, and whilst it has no free spins, it does rock a top payout of 1,868x. OK, so it’s still a relatively low variance game, but we sense a bit more potential in this one than Starburst.
Visually, like all NetEnt games, BerryBurst is a fine-looking slot – all juicy fruit colors. The suspended fruit symbols in the drink remind us a little of Thunderkick’s Fruit Warp, but of course the gameplay is very different.
Let’s find out more …
BerryBurst Game Set Up
BerryBurst is a 5 reel by 3 row game, set in an ice-cold summer fruit drink, soundtracked by an upbeat tune. Like many NetEnt slots it can be played from 10p to £200 per spin.
BerryBurst Game Symbols
Low value symbols in the game are the card suits, Hearts, Diamonds, Spades and Clubs. The high value symbols are the fruits – raspberries, mandarins, berries and limes.
You’re not looking for paylines here as this is a cluster pays game – so the minimum cluster size is five, and the top payout is for a cluster of 15 – 500x.
BerryBurst Wilds and Re-Spins
To make good in this game it’s all about the wilds which is an Ice Cube symbol. There are no free spins, so no need for scatters, and the wild substitutes for all others on the reels.
When the wild lands ANYWHERE on the reels, it expands to fill that reel and trigger a re-spin. More wilds landing on other reels expand and stick, triggering more re-spins and opening up the possibility of a full screen of wilds which is where your top payout comes in.
When wilds form a cluster, they also bring in the symbols adjacent to the cluster, to create even bigger wins!
THE SLOT BUZZ VERDICT
NetEnt have taken their time in following up on the huge success of Starburst – that game originally hit the casinos in 2012. Now it’s here you can expect to see BerryBurst being touted with the free spins welcome package for many casinos in the coming months. For our money, it looks great and we recommend giving it a few spins to turn over bonus cash or to while away some time, but don’t expect too much from BerryBurst. There are more great slots out there this summer – try Donuts or Afterlife Inferno for some real thrills.
