NetEnt’s iconic Starburst slot celebrates its tenth anniversary

Did you know that it’s already been ten years since the mythical Net Entertainment (NetEnt) slot Starburst was born? On this occasion, let’s look back at the worldwide success of the Scandinavian studio’s biggest hit! Because it’s not just a coincidence that Starburst’s wilds, shiny gems, electrifying sounds and retro arcade effects have delighted so many players around the world.

Starburst Slot Machine: a true classic of the iGaming industry

Ten years after its release in 2012, Net Entertainment’s Starburst slot has dominated the online casino gaming industry for several years. This true iconic game is one of the few games in the industry that has conquered the market despite its low volatility and 96.06% RTP. It has 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 paylines.

Over the past two years, players from all over the world have been spinning some 18 billion spins on the Starburst slot machine, some of whom have tasted the full extent of its winning potential, landing astronomical jackpots in the process!

Starburst also has a charm that can’t be found anywhere else: electrifying and thrilling graphics and animations, a catchy soundtrack that never gets old, a timeless piece of work that never ceases to make new fans.

An online casino game that never gets old!

Ten years after its release, the Starburst slot machine doesn’t look old-fashioned. This is probably due to the fact that NetEnt has continued to work on the game in some capacity. Thus, by launching Starburst XXXtreme in July 2021, the Scandinavian online casino game development studio has brought a breath of fresh air to the original game by including a whole bunch of innovative features. With a deliberately heightened level of volatility, Starburst XXXtreme slot offers a breathtaking gaming experience set against the backdrop of a space odyssey; and the monster wins are always there, thanks to XXXtreme Spins!

NetEnt has celebrated Starburst’s birthday in style. With a live band, slot-themed photo booths, a 3D-mapped birthday cake that shoots fireworks, and famous performers dressed as astronauts, Starburst’s first decade anniversary deserved a special event !

Todd Haushalter, Chief Commercial Officer of Evolution, NetEnt’s parent company, took the opportunity to speak about the Starburst™ anniversary:” The event we held at our premises is the best way to celebrate the ten years of Starburst™. The fact that this slot has been so successful for all these years is just amazing. We know that Starburst™ has been a favorite game for a large portion of our community since its launch in 2012. Here’s hoping that’s the case for a long time to come! “.
