9 Online Slots that play like Starburst | Mr Green

Starburst is legendary, but it’s also almost 10 years old. While we love a classic slot at Mr Green there are other online slots that play… and look just like Starburst. Here are 9 alternative versions to Starburst, Mr Green thinks you have to try.

Have you tried these slots and what did you think, are they worthy competitors for your play or poor imitations?

Starburst flies high as one of the most famous and most played slots online. Most online casinos offer welcome free spins on this great slot simply because of its ease of play for players new to the online casino world, its simple-to-understand mechanics, and its light-hearted relaxed theme.

Star Spinner online slot

Star Spinner from Blueprint

I always thought space was a vast sea of darkness, but a slot game that was completely black might feel a little… empty. Shades of purple with bright neon colours fill this slot and make Star Spinner a very familiar slot proposition.

Star Spinner is played across 10 paylines on a 5 reel, 3 row playtable. Classic slot symbols like cherry’s, lemons, bells and BARs make up the pay symbols.

The multi-coloured Wild star spinner symbol can land on reels 2, 3 or 4 expanding to fill the reel it lands on. The slot re-spin is then triggered. Should another star spinner symbol land during the re-spin, it expands and is held in place with the remaining reels are re-spun again.

Toki Time online slot Logo Thunderkick

TOKI TIME from Thunderkick

No space? No multi-coloured star symbol? How can this slot be anything like Starburst, I hear you say. Well like the Transformers of 80s fame, there’s more than meets the eye with Toki Time.

Think of Starburst, then strip away and all the symbols, background and sounds till you are left with a blank shell. Now, add a fun background of playful hills and a changing day to night sky (just look at that cute smile on the moon and sun). Drop-in cute and colourful animals, a rainbow cloud and a shooting star as the new pay symbols. And finally, add a cutesy soundtrack that will stick in your head all day and voila, you’ve got Toki Time!

Toki Time Online Slot base GameToki Time online Slot SymbolsToi Time online slot expanding WildT

Toki Time pays both ways, left to right and right to left. Land a Wild Animal on reels 2, 3 or 4 and it expands to fill the reel and triggers a re-spin. Land another Wild animal and it expands and activates another re-spin.

So if you’re looking for a Starburst alternative without the… space, Toki Time is definitely worth a spin. Even if it’s just to experience the 100% cuteness factor!

Turning Totems online slot logo Thunderkick

TURNING TOTEMS from Thunderkick

Another slot that you may have never tried but delivered on a fun alternative Starburst-like experience, is Turning Totems.

Turning Totems features a Native American theme with the 5 reels represented by totem poles, and the small animated native American that dances as the reels create winning paylines or trigger the bonus lightning feature.

Turning Totems online slot Base GameTurning Totems online slot Tunder Reels FeatureTurning Totems online slot Bonus GameTurning Totems online slot Ultra Win

Turning Totems pays out in both directions – left to right and right to left for extra wins whichever way the symbols land.

Land a Thunder Snake on the totem and the top of the totem activates. The Thunder Spin also activates a re-spin and should a sleeping falcon symbol land on that totem, it is woken up and turned into a WILD.

Activating 3 or more thunder reels at the same time activates 5 Free Spins. The slot changes to a nighttime theme with cracking lightning and rain, and the activated falcon symbols remaining Wild throughout.

Crystal Sun has 10 fixed paylines, and of course, they pay both ways – left to right or right to left!

Played out on a 4×3 reel play screen in the base game – that’s right, 4 reels – Reel Splitter includes the Reel Split Respin. By landing a win with 4 matching Reel Splitter symbols, the 5th reel is revealed as it slips between reel 2 and 3, boosting the slot’s ways to win up to 243.

Penguin City online slot logo Yggdrasil

Penguin City from Yggdrasil

Time for something completely different, but when you try it, Penguin City will feel oh so familiar.

Penguin City is home to the mighty Emperor Penguin and all his minuscule underlings who work hard to make food for the emperor’s food emporium. In this hilarious slot, it is your job to help the penguins escape by activating the Penguin Escape Mode.

Land a WILD symbol on reel 2 or 4 on a winning spin in-game to activate Penguin Escape Mode. During this feature, the Wild sticks in place and the reels keep re-spinning until you hit a winless spin. 1 penguin will also try to escape the kitchen with every re-spin played and these escaping penguins add an additional sticky Wild on reel 2 or 4, or a winning symbol on reel 3.

Okay okay, here’s where things get familiar; the reels can pay out in both directions – Left to right and right to left. Plus, during the escape feature, the Emperor Penguin can appear, filling reel 3 to become a stacked Wild. With every spin he moves down the reel guaranteeing re-spins until he disappears off-screen, much like the Starburst Wild.
