Play Starburst at Crown Bingo
What do you think of when you hear the term 'Starburst'? If you love sweets, you might think of the fruity square chewy sweets. But if you love video slot games, you likely think of the colourful and exciting game from NetEnt. Starburst is a great game for both beginners and experienced players alike.
How to Play
Starburst is an easy-to-play game for beginners because there are not a lot of complex rules and special features to keep track of. The reel set up is as simple as can be: 5 reels with 3 rows apiece and 10 adjustable paylines. Symbols include a number of precious gems along with 7s and a Bar symbol. Symbols are similar to an old-style Las Vegas slot machine.
Gameplay starts by determining how much you want to wager and how many paylines you want active. In order to facilitate this, there are three controls at the bottom of the screen with left and right arrow buttons to change the values. Those three buttons are:
- Lines – Determines the number of paylines to be active
- Level – Determines the number of coins to be wagered on each line
- Coin Value – Determines the value of each coin wagered.
Just above the 'Lines' control is a small display window labelled 'Stake'. This tells you how much your next wager will be if no adjustments are made.
When you are ready to spin the reels, you have three options as designated by the three buttons at the centre of the screen. The first button is the 'Autoplay' button. Click it if you want to have the game spin for you. Clicking the circular 'Spin' button initiates a single spin. Last is the 'Max Bet' button. Clicking it activates all ten paylines, places the maximum wager on all 10 and initiates a single spin.
It is interesting to note that Starburst does not have any extra features that would be considered bonus play. There is a Wild symbol that can expand to cover all the positions on its own reel and, when it does, offers a single free spin as a result. But do not think a lack of bonus features makes it impossible to win in this game. That is not the case at all.
The best thing Starburst has going for it is that winning combinations do not have to start at the far-left position. You can win from either the left or the right. Second, it is possible to win by landing blocks of symbols in various patterns, like a triangle, for example. The combination of symbol blocks, expanding wilds, and winning from either direction means you will be scoring wins more quickly in Starburst than in some other games.
Starburst is a pretty basic game but one that is tremendous fun to play. We recommend it for new video slot players just learning how to wager and set paylines. It is also great for experienced gamers who want something a bit different.
