NetEnt Rolls Out Long-Awaited Starbust Sequel Starbust XXXtreme
Fans of NetEnt’s popular online casino game “Starbust” will be delighted to know that the online slots provider, which was acquired by Evolution Gaming in 2020 has launched a long-awaited sequel to the classic game.
“Starbust XXXtreme” is the new game and it comes with innovative new features, top-notch graphics, enhanced functionality, and fresh properties, bringing online slot experience to a whole new level.
Starbust was first released in 2012 and became an instant hit. Even after nearly a decade, this slot is still among the most-played and top-rated online slots at online casinos around the world. It remains very popular among players because of its exciting features, including expanding wilds and respins, and high payout potential.
In 2020, NetEnt introduced the innovative Starbust PowerPots Community Jackpot System, giving players the chance to win their share of a community jackpot by collecting Starbust tokens across several game titles developed by NetEnt.
The unique jackpot concept gave the Starbust brand a further boost, and during the same year, the game moved up another notch when NetEnt secured a licensing deal with Gaming Realms PLC which led to the creation of a new slot game, “Slingo Starbust“.
Starbust XXXtreme Features
The Starbust XXXtreme resembles the classic game in a number of ways. One of those ways is using the popular Starbust Wild feature. However, you also have a number of new features like XXXtreme Spins. It allows players to secure 1 or 2 Starbust Wilds by paying a fee: 1 Starbust Wild costs 10x the bet, while 2 Starbust Wilds require a fee worth 95x the bet. It offers 200,000x maximum payout. This slot has an RTP of 96.26 %.
Todd Haushalter, Chief Product Officer at Evolution, said the new online slot is fun-focused, with an easy to understand mechanic.
Starbust XXXtreme continues the legacy of the original game, keeping the classic features while at the same time adding new twists that the present and future generation of players would surely love.
