On first impressions, you could easily mistake Berry Burst for a typical five-reel slot. After all, it features three rows of symbols and is produced by NetEnt, which means that not only is it mobile-friendly thanks to its NetEnt Touch format, but also looks as though it uses traditional paylines. However, the Berry Burst slot game has one impressive trick up its sleeve – the Cluster Pays game mechanic which we’ve also seen in NetEnt mobile slots like the Aloha slot, Twin Spin Deluxe, and The Legend of Shangri-La. For casino players, this is a pretty big deal as it massively affects the way that you can win prizes while playing the game. You don’t need to cross your fingers in the hopes that a series of matching symbols land on the right positions on the reels to form a payline win. Instead, you simply want at least five identical symbols that are touching each other vertically or horizontally to come into view. The special features of the Berry Burst slot include expanding wilds and re-spins so it’s possible to scoop as much as three thousand times your stake with as little as 20p per spin!
Catchy dance music with tropical undertones courtesy of steel drums invites you to plunge into the fruit-infused waters that provide the backdrop for the slot game. The five reels are suspended in the punch-like liquid, allowing the paytable symbols to look as though they’re floating. The delicious cocktail of images that fill the reel positions includes slices of oranges and lemons, plus whole grapes and raspberries. There are also four symbols which represent the club, heart, spade, and diamond playing card suits, and an orange ice cube. Even if you’ve already played some of NetEnt’s other Cluster Pays slots on your mobile phone or tablet device, the way it works in the Berry Burst online slot is slightly different as you need fewer symbols to create clusters. Five or more identical symbols that are vertically or horizontally adjacent to each other count as a cluster, and if six or more wilds form a cluster, they substitute for symbols on either side of the cluster.
The orange-coloured ice cube with the letter “W” in the centre is the wild symbol in the video slot, and it can appear on all five reels. Each time that one or more wilds come into view in the base game, they automatically expand to cover the reel that they appear on before activating one re-spin. What’s particularly remarkable about the re-spin feature in the Berry Burst slot is that not only do you get a free re-spin with each expanding wild that appears, but the wild reels also get locked in place until the re-spins have finished. Further re-spins are gained if more wilds land on the reels, and because of the Expanding Wild feature, there’s the potential to turn all five reels fully wild.
