The wombat says: BerryBurst slot from NetEnt has a juicy fruit theme – and we’ve seen quite a few of these in our time. But what’s unusual, is that there is no Free Spins round on offer in the game.
Don’t panic though! You can still win big Wombat fans because of the cluster pay mechanics and expanding wild reels. Let’s unwrap this fruity treat and see if we can’t scoop some mouth-watering wins! Although the game is less complex than, say, the Mirror Mirror slot, there are still plenty of winning opportunities to be had.
Look and Feel
The graphics in BerryBurst slot are very nice; all crisp 3D transparent symbols and a brightly coloured backdrop – but it does looks a lot like Starburst (its NetEnt predecessor), as well as Fruit Warp, Dazzle Me and a whole other bunch of fruity-gem slots.
Why change a winning formula I guess? This game looks as good as the Double Stacks slot – good enough to eat in fact, and across both games you’ll have most of your vitamin C requirements covered once you have completed a few Berry Burst spins.
Berryburst Game Play
BerryBurst has 5 reels, 3 rows but zero pay-lines. But more on that later.
Your symbols on the reels include luscious limes, yummy grapes, juicy mandarins, and those plump red raspberries which are your highest paying symbol on the reels and paying out 500x your bet if you land a screenful of the fruity little buggers. The playing card suits hearts, diamonds and spades will act as your lower value symbols. It’s all classic fruit machine stuff in high definition, just like the Side Winder slot, and why not? It’s a winning formula.
BerryBurst Cluster Pays
Say goodbye to pay-lines, and hello to clusters! Yes, that’s right, in this slot your wins are created when 5x or more of the same symbol connect horizontally or vertically – now you’ll get a payout. This is called a cluster win.
The Wild in the game is sticky, and it will land on any reel during the base game and in the re-spins feature – as always it will substitute for any other any symbol on the reels.
The Wild symbols will expand over a whole reel, remain in their position and trigger off a re-spin where you will land more even wilds and even more more re-spins until more wins are made. A full screen of wilds will pay you out 500x wombat fans, which is better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick, now isn’t it?
Free Spins and Bonus Features
Just like in StarBurst there are no free spins or bonus games in BerryBurst slot. But the Wild Re-spins do pop up about once every 4 spins, so you won’t really miss the extras.
Play BerryBurst slot on mobile
Like to spin on the hop? Then breath a sigh of relief! As you can play BerryBurst on your tablet, smartphone or desktop. The game will look and play exactly the same on any device, so you don’t have to worry about any changes to the gameplay.
The small wins land often in BerryBurst slot, while the chunky pay outs a are a little harder to come by. Still, this NetEnt game does a good job of updating their Starburst slot here (which is basically what they have done) although the graphics are definitely much better, and the pay-table slightly worse. This game will be popular so it’s worth a spin just to have an opinion on it!
