Berryburst, from the sound of it, feels like a successful follow-up to its predecessor, Starburst. In many ways, Berryburst is every bit a successor to Starburst. However, that would be oversimplifying things for this game. The highly creative people at NetEnt have managed to once again infuse their genius in creating a slot game that is truly refreshing and makes the players think on their feet.
For instance, NetEnt has done away with the free spins feature in Berryburst. A recipe for disaster, you say? Well, you are in for a surprise and a treat with Berryburst. The cluster pays and expanding wild features create such a rewarding casino gaming experience that you’ll not even miss your favorite feature. In fact, you’ll be amazed by the ingenuity of the game that is Berryburst.
Theme and Design
Berryburst is an ultimate summer adventure. The game features an upbeat background score. All the symbols are based on summer freshness – limes, berries, and orange slices. There is an ice symbol, which is the wild. It substitutes for all the symbols in the game. All the symbols on the reels are suspended in fresh fruit juice.
There are a total of 7 regular symbols, including the fruits and card symbols. There are no scatter symbols either. However, there are Regular Wilds and Expanding Wilds.
The 3-row, 5-reel game does not offer any paylines. However, stakes as high as 6000x are waiting for you in this game in the Max version. In the manual version, you can take advantage of up to 1868x stakes.
Despite the glaring absence of the free spins feature, NetEnt has managed to create a truly refreshing, thirst-quenching, and delightful summer game for players to enjoy in any season. Here are the various features offered in the game.
Landing a wild symbol on any of the reels is the first step in your winning streak. The wild expands to fill the entire reel with wilds and give you a re-spin. Landing more wilds like this can help you fill up your full screen with wilds. When that happens, i.e. when you land 15 wild symbols, the payout is 500x. What’s more, the automatic re-spin can help you win as much as 1000x if you land 15 wilds on the initial spin, provided that there is minimum one wild reel.
When same symbols appear on the screen adjacent to each other horizontally or vertically, they will form a cluster. The minimum cluster size is 5. When 6 or more wild symbols form a cluster, they can only substitute the symbols on either side of the cluster. So, when the wilds occupy the entire screen, they will finally reach a point where they cannot substitute any other symbol as there is no other symbol left on the screen.
There are two versions of Berryburst game. The regular version is a medium-variance game that offers plenty of winning opportunities with a maximum of 1868x winning potential. The MAX version of the game offers the players as much as 6000x winning potential. Simply put, Berryburst is a great successor to Starburst.
