NetEnt’s Starburst celebrates 10-year anniversary
Evolution-owned NETENT is celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the initial launch of Starburst, with current fans and new players still enjoying Starburst Wilds.
Starburst is a classic and has become an iconic game for the industry. In the last two and a half years alone, the game has seen 18 billion spins, and with the potential for big wins hitting big heights, graphics and thrilling animation.
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 features of the original, whilst including new age features such as a cranked up volatility that creates a space odyssey. 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 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.
“The event was an incredible way of celebrating Starburst’s 10-year anniversary,” said Evolution chief product officer Todd Haushalter. “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.”
