Berryburst Slot Review
As we predicted, fruits are making a massive return to the world of online slots. The latest slot that features our fruity friends comes from Net Entertainment. They have just released BerryBurst and BerryBurst Max, the first ground breaking slots on their mixed volatility product line. It’s a 5 reel slot that has Cluster Pays instead of win lines. This innovative game includes stacked wild re-spins on all reels and the chance to win up to x3000/x6000 your bet. In short, BerryBurst is a fruitier version of Starburst.
Play BerryBurst Slots
Positioned on a large raspberry, BerryBurst has the feel of a glass of juice. Fruit and bubble icons drop into play accompanied with an upbeat calypso tune. The main icons are raspberries, oranges, cherries and limes. These are joined by bubbles of hearts, spades and diamonds. As mentioned there are no win lines – just clusters! A cluster of 15 raspberries, in other words all reels filled, pay x5000. Only clusters of 5 symbols pay out. The lowest win therefore is five of the same playing card at x5. The Max version of BerryBurst pays x10000 for 15 wilds/raspberry symbols.
Wagering on both BerryBurst and BerryBurst Max starts at just 10p but can be increased to £200. Use the coin size and level adjustments to determine your bet. An autoplay feature allows up you to set things up to 1000 spins. Options to stop the autoplay based on wins and losses are available. The slot can be played on mobile, tablet and desktop.
There are no free spin or scatter features on BerryBurst. Wilds represent the main feature and these can appear on any reel. Wilds also expand and result in respins. Extra wilds on the respin will result in further respins.
NetEnt have released another visually stunning game. We’re hard pushed to figure out why there are two versions of the game, especially as the RTP’s are similar. The Max version offers a better paytable over the non-Max version. According to NetEnt BerryBurst players have more chances of grabbing smaller wins and less chance of a bigger win, with BerryBurst Max it’s the opposite – it offers fewer small wins while increasing the opportunity to strike bigger ones. This makes us err towards the Max for play. The lack of free spins/bonus round is disappointing, but the stacked wilds feature is good and can result in big wins. However, BerryBurst is basically Starburst with Fruits and it doesn’t quite hit the mark. Other games, such as Aloha, are more likely to hold interest.
