Starburst is a true classic and has become an iconic game for the industry. In the last two and a half years alone, the game has seen an incredible 18 billion spins, and with the potential for big wins hitting astronomical heights, graphics and thrilling animation, this game is set to remain a timeless piece of work. 

Since 2012, the game has seen a new sequel launched – Starburst XXXtreme. Live since July of last year, Starburst XXXtreme has brought players all the beloved features of the original, whilst including new age features such as cranked-up volatility that creates a space odyssey with a jaw-dropping gaming experience and spectacular win potential. It also sees the debut of XXXtreme Spins, which players have the option of purchasing to guarantee Starburst Wilds when activated. 

NetEnt celebrated Starburst’s achievement in style. With live music, Starburst-themed photo booths, a 3D Mapped birthday cake shooting fireworks, and out-of-this-world astronaut performers. The birthday party event saw game creators and operators come together to enjoy a decade-long slot story and to toast to the next decade. 

Todd Haushalter, Chief Product Officer at Evolution, commented: “The event was an incredible way of celebrating Starburst’s 10th anniversary. A decade-long run for a single slot game is an incredible achievement, and it’s been a top favourite with players ever since it was first launched. From the looks of things, that’s going to keep going, and going, and going. Starburst is the full package – an exciting, classic game that entertains you right from the start. I can’t wait to see what the next decade brings.”
