Go intergalactic to unlock the power of the Starburst and win big amongst the jewels and the stars.
How to play Starburst Slots
In this NetEnt slot game, you’ll be enjoying some zero-gravity spins on five reels, three rows, and ten paylines. Ten paylines doesn’t sound like a lot but those ten paylines can pay left to right or right to left – meaning that you can win from either side. The Lucky Seven and Bar symbols play as your big winners.
Finding just one Starburst will make it expand to cover the whole reel and initiate a re-spin. Finding more Starbursts in the re-spin will cause them to cover their reels and activate another re-spin. The Starbursts are your wilds, substituting for all symbols.
Unleash the power of the Starburst and win big in space!

Symbols and Special Features
To underline the arcade-style nature of this slot, you won’t be surprised to see symbols on the reels inspired by old-school fruit machines, as well as contemporary gem-based strategy games.
The most valuable base game symbol is the ‘BAR’ symbol, followed by the lucky red seven. The five gems are the lower value icons. They differ in value with the yellow gem the most valuable, followed by the green, orange, blue and purple gems. The multi-coloured star is the wild symbol whenever you play Starburst. It can only appear on reels two, three and four.
The main bonus feature in the Starburst slot is the Starburst Wilds round. Although it is linked to free spins, it doesn’t activate in the same way as most conventional free spins features. Instead, your likelihood of landing re-spins is determined by the presence of the Starburst wild symbol.
Whenever the multi-coloured star symbol appears on reel two, three or four, it expands to fill the entire reel. If you manage to get one fully wild reel, you’ll get one free spin with that wild reel locked in place for the re-spin. If you are lucky enough to land another wild on one of the other two reels, you’ll get another re-spin with two fully wild reels locked in place. In total, it’s possible to earn three re-spins by turning reels two, three and four fully wild in successive spins.
During your third and final re-spin with all three middle reels wild, cross your fingers to fill up reels one and five with ‘BAR’ symbols to win the 500x maximum jackpot!
How to Bet
There are five different levels you can choose from, ranging from level one to level five. Increasing the level also increases the size of your minimum and maximum bet. Players at level five will qualify for the game’s biggest prizes.
There are ten active paylines on the reels of NetEnt’s Starburst slot which give you chances to land symbol combinations horizontally, diagonally, or in a zig-zag combination.
Coin values start from 0.01 credits and can increase to 0.02, 0.05, 0.10 and 0.20 credits. The coin value indicates how much you are staking per active payline. For instance, at a 0.01 coin value and level one betting, you will pay 0.10 credits per spin, covering all ten paylines. Changing the betting level to two doubles your bet to 0.20 credits per spin.
The minimum bet in NetEnt’s Starburst game is set at 0.10 credits per spin. You can set this using a coin value of 0.01 and betting level one.
The Autoplay functionality in Starburst online is available. You can play from ten to 100 spins with a single click. You can set loss limits beforehand, which end the feature if your balance decreases or rises by a set amount.
Free Spins Bonus
Fill all three of the middle reels with Starburst wilds to bag three re-spins on the reels. This symbol is a multi-coloured star that only appears on reels two, three and four. Whenever it appears, it expands to create fully wild reels and locks in place to give you one re-spin per wild reel.
Payouts and Volatility
The base game payouts for the Starburst slot are as follows: purple and blue gems (0.5x, 1x and 2.5x for three, four or five on a payline); orange gems (0.7x, 1.5x and 4x for three, four or five on a payline); green gems (0.8x, 2x and 5x for three, four or five on a payline); yellow gems (1x, 2.5x and 6x for three, four or five on a payline); red sevens (2.5x, 6x and 12x for three, four or five on a payline); BAR symbols (5x, 20x and 25x for three, four or five on a payline).
Slot Theme and Graphics
The Starburst slot is characterised by its cosmic, futuristic theme, with an intergalactic setting backed by planets and shooting stars galore. Although it’s by no means our most visually immersive slot, its razor-sharp gems and symbols are easily distinguishable to help you keep up with the gameplay.
Free play in Demo mode
Providing you are logged in to your Paddy Power Games account, you can opt for the Starburst slot free play option.

Is it safe to play Starburst at an online casino?
It’s absolutely safe to play NetEnt’s Starburst slot at a regulated and licensed online casino like Paddy Power Games.

How can I get free spins on Starburst?
It’s possible to earn at least one Starburst free spin, in the form of a re-spin, when you play by finding the wild symbol anywhere on reels two, three or four. Whenever the multi-coloured star symbol appears, it will fill the entire reel it lands on, triggering the Starburst Wilds feature. The fully wild reel locks in place for one free spin. You can get additional Starburst slot free spins, again, as re-spins, by turning additional reels fully wild. The best-case scenario is turning all three middle reels fully wild, increasing your chances of landing the Starburst jackpot.
Is Starburst a game of chance or a game of skills?
As with all slot games at Paddy Power Games, the Starburst slot machine fully randomises the outcome of every spin of the reels. Our slots are managed by algorithms in the background that operate independently, ensuring games abide by their volatility levels. There is no strategy that can help you to consistently win long-term at the Starburst slot.
Where does the name Starburst come from?
The Starburst name was derived by the slot’s award-winning developers, NetEnt. It’s since become one of the most iconic slot franchises in the iGaming industry. The Starburst title is inspired by its cosmic theme, with the reels set in outer space, along with a racy, futuristic soundtrack.
Does the Starburst slot game have a jackpot?
Yes, there is a Starburst jackpot up for grabs. It is worth 500x your initial stake. It’s achieved whenever you fill all five reels with the most lucrative ‘BAR’ symbol. If you have one, two or three fully wild reels, these can also count towards landing the jackpot, with three fully wild reels requiring just two full reels of ‘BAR’ symbols.
