A bold choice from Netent, since Starburst has been the most played online slot machine for years. Not only from Netent, but from all online slots.
Why would Netent want to challenge this? The proverb “never change a winning team” does not exist for nothing.
Fortunately, the release of Berryburst does not mean that the Starburst slot machine disappears completely. You should see Berryburst more as a complementary slot than as a substitute.

Visually an absolute pleasure.
Graphically, Berryburst looks very nice anyway: the colors and symbols really splash off the screen and the animations and big win celebrations are just as beautiful.
You play Berryburst not only on your desktop or laptop, but also on your mobile device. The Netent Touch versions of slots are now so advanced that they are almost indistinguishable from the “regular” desktop versions.
Many similarities between Berryburst and Starburst.
Berryburst has adopted many of the elements that made Starburst so attractive:
- You win from both sides
- Wilds expand and give a respin
- The game is simple and fast
- The bet is between € 0.10 and € 200 per spin
So what’s new about Berryburst?
First of all, the theme is no longer science fiction, but fruit is the main subject. And what do those fruit symbols look like to eat, say!
It is also striking that there are no paylines, but that the cluster pays mechanism is active.
Furthermore, with Berryburst you can spin no less than 5 reels of wilds, instead of the maximum 3 reels of wilds at Starburst.
The maximum profit has therefore increased considerably: at Berry burst it is possible to win 1,000 x your bet. If you have played the maximum bet, you can easily drag in 200,000 euros. And that’s above all the payouts you take in the run-up to the 5 wilds.
In terms of variance, Berry burst is therefore a lot more attractive than Starburst, which had a very low variance.
Berryburst therefore seems a bit more focused on the more serious gambler, for which Starburst was aimed at the novice player.
The Sweetest Fruit Ever.
As you enter Berry Burst video slot, you’ll be amazed by how realistically symbols of delicious fruit look. The purple color is dominant and amazing animations follow each winning combination. The combination of colorful and juicy fruit and perfectly designed card suits is absolutely enchanting. When it comes to the soundtrack, the whole experience is definitely improved by its cheerful nature and energy. You shouldn’t mute the music because it has a potential to lift your mood and cheer you up.
Berry Burst video slot has 7 basic symbols and one special symbol. The regular symbols in order according to their value are raspberry, mandarin, plums, and limes. Card suits are the lowest paying symbol, while 15 raspberries landing on the reel can bring you the highest prize – 5000. The special symbol in this fruity slot is the Wild and it can appear in any place, at any phase of the game.
Payout percentage Berryburst.
Berryburst’s payout percentage was not known at the time of writing this review. We dare to say with any certainty that it will be between 96% and 97%, as is actually the case for most Netent slots.
What do we think of the Berryburst slot machine?
Netent has taken a big gamble with Berryburst, which in our opinion works out very well. Starburst was always a slot with too low variance for us and Berryburst jumps nicely in that hole.
This slot not only looks very nice, you can also win some money. We expect Berryburst to be a big hit for Netent.If you’re lucky enough, lucrative Wilds will dominate the reels, making your prizes extra juicy.
