Netent and the History Behind Starburst Slot Machine Game

NetEntertainment, also known as NetEnt, is the largest gaming developer in Scandinavia. The company has been around for almost two decades and has published more than 600 titles in that time. While they have experience developing top quality slots games, they have recently released a new game called Starburst which is one of the most popular slots games on the market.  Well, 2012 is "just the other year" to most of us even though kids born in that year will be turning seven this year. It's easy to see why when you take a look at the game. This is an exciting and fast paced game that is fun to play and will appeal to a wide range of players. The major reason for its popularity is that it has very eye-catching graphics, but there are also other reasons… Let's look at what made Starburst a winner.

1.  There's a candy (Starburst candy) by the same name

No one can resist this old-time favorite—it was first introduced in 1964, but has remained a universally loved treat ever since. The chewy candies, which come in six original and five fruit flavors, are available at most retailers and can also be ordered on Amazon. A single serving of Starburst contains a whopping 31 grams of sugar, so keep that in mind! But the bright colors and wonderful taste will make you forget about anything else.

 2. There's another slot with a cunningly similar name

It's a storytelling slot that has fairies in an enchanted forest. Stardust Slot features a magical experience with fairies, gnomes and elves. The game’s design is one of the most colourful out there thanks to its whimsical graphics. It's refreshing to see a game that doesn't take itself too seriously and embraces the childlike joy of imagination. The fairies are the main characters of this slot. They live in a forest and you can see them dancing, singing and playing with magical butterflies. You can also hear the songbirds singing in the background.

 3. Norwegians have their own version of Starburst

And no; it's not just a variation of this online slot.

In Norway they have an additional meaning of the word, as the Norwegian Starburst is also a knitting technique.  This is a fun, easy pattern with an eye-catching result that consists of just two rows of knitting and can be completed in just one hour! What’s more, it’s amazingly versatile. It’s a pattern that has been around for years in various guises. You may have seen it as the Cloud Lace Scarf pattern by Maggie Righetti in the book ‘Dazzling Doilies’, or as the Starburst Shawl by Clara Parkes in her book ‘Knitting Nature’. That might be a reason why playing the Starburst slot game or "spilleautomater spill" how it is called by Norwegians became so popular in the country.

 4. Almost all casinos give free spins at this slot

Imagine you're sitting at home, and all of a sudden there's free money on your screen. No strings attached. That's what online casinos give their players, in the form of free spins and bonuses that are given away with every deposit. All decent casinos let you play Starburst for free; because they're sure you'll love it.

 5. The online version of Starburst has better payouts than that at online casinos

Online slot games are great for a number of reasons. The first of which is that they are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This means that you can play them whenever you want, whichever way suits your lifestyle. They also don't require any download or registration (although this is often necessary for the casino itself) and many offer free play to allow you to try before you make a deposit.

However, there are lots of other good reasons for playing online slot games. For example, the payouts are much better than in a land-based venue, play is faster (as there is no need to wait for the reels to stop spinning) and you don't need to dress up.
