NetEnt Marks Starburst’s Tenth Anniversary

10-year anniversary of Starburst

NetEnt, an iGaming behemoth, celebrated ten years since the release of one of the industry’s most popular games, Starburst. The legendary space adventure was launched a decade ago, causing positive chaos among punters. They still love it, and there is no sign of its popularity dropping. Brilliant gems, evocative sounds and effects, together with generous Wild symbols, make the journey to the outer hemisphere more memorable than ever. The game has recorded eighteen billion spins across the industry, becoming one of the most popular titles in history. It will undoubtedly retain that status due to fantastic graphics and decent payouts.

Despite the lack of features, Starburst’s undying popularity and its legacy are evident from the first spin. Wilds can turn up on the three middle reels, expanding to cover the whole reel and remaining locked for the following respin. If more Wilds hit the reels, they do the same, using the maximum of three respins. The gameplay might not sound too inspiring, particularly for such a famous title, but its appeal is best to experience by playing it. It has an RTP of 96.09%, exceeding the industry standard, and low-to-medium volatility to boot. The broad wagering scope is an asset, from $0.1 to the maximum bet of $100.

Memorable Sequel

The company has recently launched Starburst XXXTreme, a fantastic sequel to the unforgettable original. It was released in July 2021 and reminded fans of the original’s features, adding some new ones. This galactic adventure offers a gaming experience to remember, including higher volatility and other engaging perks. With the more-than-handsome payouts it provides, it is a phenomenal game that introduced XXXtreme Spins that give big prizes. The buy option can also help, guaranteeing Wilds will appear. Multiple winning chances make this title enormously appealing to customers worldwide.

The original Starburst is an excellent retro game that will immediately bring players back to childhood, evoking pleasant memories. Sharp, simple visuals and a cool, jazzy soundtrack make the audio-visual aspect fantastic. It might look too straightforward, but players should consider its appeal in 2012. It will be an exceptionally nostalgic experience for everyone who played it then. Nothing similar had been seen in the industry until the appearance of Starburst, and it has maintained its status in 2022. Punters all around the globe still admire this game, and the impact it had on the industry is simply unbelievable.

Deserved Festivities

The ten-year landmark was appropriately celebrated with fireworks, live music, astronaut performers and a birthday cake. The creators and their operator partners met to make a toast to successful decades to come. The CPO at Evolution, Todd Haushalter, has said the ten-year glory is a milestone achievement but not a surprise. Fans have liked it since its debut, for it delivers the whole package, everything they want from a game. It is an exciting game with a thrilling atmosphere throughout the entire experience. Everyone thinks the following decade will bring many more pleasant surprises.
