66x for the random draw.

To say I was confused at first is an understatement, but after first Bonus I read the rules and 'Think' I understand, though still not 'Au Fait' with how the special move is used, or why it helps the opponent, more often it result in your character losing health points.
It also takes a while to distinguish between 'Beat Up' symbols of normal symbols of the same character. 

Base game is very harsh as its essentially a Grind game (all be it a quick one normally less than 100 spins to complete) so no quick visit to grab a bonus.
The game regularly goes 30-40 spins without a win (Cluster Pay) on in the worst case for me went 88 spins without a win so can take the balance quickly, which i suppose it has to as there is always a reward at the end of the build.Though the Car Smash bonus seems to religiously pay 15x, so not a great reward. I can't see how it can pay in the base game, even after many cascades and 5 special move power ups the base game paid the grand total of 33x. And the cluster pays don't seem to form more than 7 as a cluster.

Not sure whether I'll try to get a bigger win again soon as I've its cost 500 time stake to get one Boss Free spins Bonus in just over 1000 spins, but think I'll will lay again in the future for nostalgia reasons, as didn't get to see (fight) all the characters.

Is there possibility to cheat this competition by simply building towards the Beat The Boss freespins on a high stake, say £10 then switch to 40p for the trigger to represent a bigger x win as the Bonus is based on average stake on the build?

In about 500+ spins and on minimum stake this game stripped me of £60 very quickly. I unfortunately didn't even get a win over 30x+ to be able to show neither a beat the boss bonus. Love the aesthetic and the idea of the game but the pays are harsh.

It is brutal, took £200 off me on 40p stake in 1037 spins in under an hour. Where does it give back? Are we gonna see massive wins that compensate the brutal base game?

Hey Guys,

If you're worried about the base game being hard try stepping down the character you choose.  The CHaracter REALLY makes a difference on the experience.  KEN is the roughest ride but with the biggest potential pay out.  Versus Ken you can make the ride a bit softer with Chun Li, Blanka or the Russian Beast Zangief.  Hope that helps!

ROLL UP! ROLL UP!

From all the NetEnter's and from myself I would very much like to say thank you for the time, effort and care you have all put into both the Photoshop Magic you have displayed but also you feedback about Berryburst and the MAX Bigger Hits concept.  We really appreciate all of you.  

Now I have the difficult duty of announcing the winners of the Photoshop and Feedback Competition, this was very difficult.  We're all players here at NetEnt - so we like a bit of fun, a bit of crazy and a bit whaaa?  We also take the player feedback very seriously.  None of it is going into a black hole - we will be acting on some of this in our future productions!

So the PhotoShop Winners are:

Samarahopkinson (yay) for the Whaaa?  (seriously there's something alluring and creepy about this guy....)

BerryBurst MAX feedback

 

Design, Graphics and symbols

 

At first sight, the overall gameboard is very nice and pleasant for the eye. The background is very colourful, and I really like the gradient colour palette they have used. The spin panel is transparent which I think makes the gameboard “clean” and doesn’t take too much focus. This is something I want to see more often.

 

All the symbols are made in a “cartoon” like way (means they does not look to realistic) and I think that fits the slot very nice. I also like that the symbols are in constantly motion, it makes the slot lively.

 

When you get a win, symbols get expanded and make some waves with some really nice graphics added to it. When you hit a wild, it expands fast. No extra teasing just for a wild, good! I noticed that the two BerryBurst Max logos at the sides goes away, and in comes a big BerryBurst Max logo in the background when you get an expanded wild. Might this be the sign of the MAX feature?

 

 

 

Sound fx and music

 

I love the music! It has such a nice build-up from the start. If I close my eyes I imagine being at the pool, I can feel the fresh hot breeze, the music plays in the background coming from the pool bar, while taking a sip of my margarita drink :) I feel the music is varied and last long enough for not to get tired of it. Many slots have a short looping music, but I feel this is one of the best regarding playtime.

 

When you get a (SUPER) MEGA WIN the music get’s an extra nice loop to it, depending on how big the win is, the loops go further and cooler! Excellent!

 

The sound fx is a bit too loud compared to the music. When you get a win, I feel the sound is 100% more volume than the music, a bit too much in my opinion. The “bubble sound” when symbols stops really don’t make much sense in the theme. Are the berries in the water, if so, why? Another sound would be better, and not that high volume. I think it ruining the nice music with all that bubble sound, especially if you use quickplay!

 

 

 

Gameplay

 

I think BerryBurst Max is an easy slot to understand how works. You don’t need to learn what lines pays. All you need to know is that you need 5 symbols to connect. There are not tons of symbols, so is easy to distinguish the different symbols (I have to add this because some slots have symbols that is hard spot the difference, like coins in grey, bronze, silver and gold).

 

The spinning is just perfect regarding the speed. I feel there is no need to use the quickspin setting on this slot. Perfect!

 

The Re-spin feature when getting a wild is easy to understand, and basically the same as in Starburst. If you hit a new wild, you get one more spin, and this is obviously the most exciting about this slot. At the time I’ve played, I feel there is a good chance of hitting the 2nd and 3rd wild which will give you some good wins, depending on the wilds are connecting and if you have some premium symbols added to them. What you are looking for, and here is where BerryBurst Max is getting exciting, is the 4th or even 5th wild reel, which will give you a massive win. Even 4 wild reels with the re-spin should give you some huge bananas :)

 

 

 

Features

 

Unfortunately, the only feature is the re-spin function when you hit a wild. Even though it can lead to massive wins I feel the slot is lacking features.

 

 

 

Conclusion

 

I think the music and partially the graphics saves this slot. I am very certain I will drop by this slot occasionally, thanks to the music, but most for the potential of getting a dream hit up to 6000 times your bananas. We have been waiting a long time for another high volatile slot from NetEnt, and finally it’s here. When that is said, I don’t think this was the kind of slot everyone called for. Unless it had one extra feature you can read more about under “my suggestions” :)

 

If this had the same volatility as starburst, I’d still swap it for Starburst, but how often would that be? :)

 

 

 

My suggestions

 

Everyone loves slots with free spins! There could be scatters with free-spins feature with sticky wild reels when they hit. It’s like re-spins but you have 10 spins to collect wild reels. And why not: if you get 3 scatters with a wild symbol the trigger spin, keep the wild for the free-spins for a better start :)

 

Another feature could be triggered when getting 3 wild reels in base game re-spin feature, you are rewarded with 10 free spins with those 3 wilds in there for the free spins, giving you almost guaranteed wins, mega wins and even super mega wins. How awesome would that be? A feeling that can be compared to hitting a wild line in Dead or Alive, you know every rest of the spins is going to be massive! Best feeling for a slot player!

 

 

 

Thank you for reading, I hope you liked my feedback!

MAX concept feedback

I wasn’t sure what the MAX concept was (unfortunately I missed the start of the release stream), but I did some reading on NETENT website to catch up. As far as I understand slots will be released in two editions, a regular one and one MAX version with high volatility. I’m not sure if both slots will be available at the casino, or they have to pick one of them? Will be interesting to see.

If the MAX concept work as I think it will, it a smart move from NETENT. If you google or search on youtube for “big wins” you are most likely to see slots from BTG, Merkur and novomatics to mention some providers. Lately also slots from Push Gaming is more often to see. Of course there is still a lot of insane good wins on Dead or Alive, and a few Jack and the Beanstalk, as well as Book of Dead and Reactoonz from Play n’ Go. However, I think BTG has the majority of all the biggest win.

The MAX concept might be able to take NETENT back on the throne. The question is, will they dare to compete against some of the insane BTG slots with 10.000x+++++ wins? IF that is the intention on the MAX concept, I give my thumbs up! Still, as I said in my review, they need to make some slots with more features that people want to see, want to feel, want to play. It’s awesome to get huge basegame hits, but you need the high-five when those scatters drop in – bonus time! ?

 

There are some classics I’d love to see MAX’ed up!

1. Twin Spin

This is a slot I like very much, even though it has no free-spins or bonus. The sound and excitement when you get 5 reels synced is awesome, but I feel the potential is a bit too low, compared to Queen of Riches by BTG. If you MAX it up, you might snatch some QOR players easily :P

My suggestion: whenever a wild symbol hits, it gets expanded! I’ve had 5 reels synced, and a line of WILDS, but the win wasn’t awesome, because the other lines was 2 different symbols. Imagine that line expand for a fullscreen.

667623989_twinspinMAX.thumb.jpg.783e42607a6028f5fd796333f4ae81de.jpg

 

2. Steamtower

A very well know slot for most players, where the free-spins isn’t many spins away. What I like is that the bonus doesn’t only offer free-spins with potential more winnings than the basegame, but also a goal to reach the top (which I’d think should be rewarded much more, because it’s hard to reach the top!)

My suggestion: whenever a wild hits in bonus, it gets expanded (and 6+ spins ?)

1474154033_SteamtowerMAX.thumb.jpg.67f2b4eb6ef5b61b77b07478e62e6099.jpg

 

3. Drive multiplier mayhem

This has potential when the X2-X5 hits on a line. But what if all those could go fullscreen? What an insane hit that would be!

My suggestion: When you hit a X2-X5 wild you can either get the reel expanded, or the wild will spread out new wilds. Like, X4 wild will clone 4 new wilds, X2 wild will clone 2 new wilds. If you get one 2X wild and one 3X wild, you will get 5 new wilds spread out the reels. Imagine you get one X1, one X2, one X3, one X4 and one X5 :)

This is so very cool - plus you're a photoshop demon!  I will be sending this to the team along with some of the additional comments from the folks below!  Thank you!

Can I ask - what is you're favourite BTG game and why?  The 10000x is such a big lure?  Even though you're chances of seeing it yourself is very remote?

 

On 27/08/2018 at 21:08, luugius said:

I feel that you are going to the right direction with increasing the volatility of your games, while still offering a lower variance version. 

So here are my ideas regarding the MAX concept:

 

One of my all time favourite games is Reel Rush ( goes to tell I have over 5000 "Big win" awards on that game at Casumo only :D ). I think you could MAX that game by making the wilds act as 2x, 3x or 4x multipliers when you have achieved the free spins. That would act a lot of excitement!

Another Classic I would like to see maxed would be Secret of the Stones. Maybe take a page out of Yggdrasil's book, and make that game have maybe a "Golden bet", which gives 1 extra pick in the bonus, and "Platinum bet" which would give 2 extra picks. Then on top of that, include picks for making Reel 3 wild, or even Reel 1 and 5 wild as well. So basically playing the Platinum bet could allow you to get a ridiculous setup of something like "Reels 2,3,4 wild, 3x multiplier, Owl wild and 10 extra spins for some monstrous wins!

I agree with pausefisk about Twin Spin, even if the game allowed fullscreen of wilds or diamonds, it would pay a bit under 10 000 x, which still pales with BTG games.

NetEnt is quite known for great "license-based" games. Planet of the Apes is an awesome game, and MAXing it in my mind would require some kind of a "double bonus" if you managed to land 3 scatters in both reels on one spin. 

In general I am in a favor of putting a lot of RTP in to the free spins bonus, and then making the free spins difficult to get, but have a very high average win. Then the player can truly be excited when the free spins are won. 

 

Berryburst feedback:

I never play Starburst since it has no bonus feature and the max win is quite low. With Berryburst and Berryburst MAX you have fixed one of these problems, so I have played the game a few times and enjoyed it, even scoring a win bit over 200x! NetEnt games always run very smooth and have very honed graphics and sounds, and Berryburst is no exception. Great game in total, although I am not a huge fan of games that don't have a free spins feature. 

Thank you CG and NetEnt for this promotion, had a lot of fun with the free spins earlier, and maybe I am lucky enough to win something else as well :)❤️ 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you luugius!  Question:  how many spins would you want to wait until the Free Spins feature would kick in based on your comments of having more RTP in the Free Spins bonus? 200? 300? 400?

BerryBurst MAX my feedback/review

I have tried out BerryBurst Max with my own money finally last weeks’ time and also seen other videos on youtube or streamers play it.

For start first that springs to mind are with no doubt Starburst (could actually call it Starburst 2 which I guess it is hehe) Starburst on a cocktail tour :D

I think BerryBurst Max has really nice graphics and sound plus music also really nice and fits with the “Berry” theme. To be fair I think NetEnt has always been really good with graphics and music in slots if not the best then among the best.

At first, I actually thought it was 243 ways but of course, realized it used the same kind of cluster format as seen in Aloha cluster pays. So basically no pay line(bet lines) wins. This is perfectly fine and makes a more unique slot compared to Starburst.

Overall I enjoyed the slot despite this kind of slot is not my favourite but I would choose this if I had the choice between having to spin on Starburst or BerryBurst Max.

I am more into slots that gives you a feature round free spins or bonus round (something exciting to look forward to) and not just a few respins with wilds.

To finish off I see a problem having 2 versions like BerryBurst. It will confuse new slot players and they won't understand really what the difference is. As in reality it's only the “paytable” features on BerryBurst or MAX versions is the same apart from 6000x max win to 3000x max win.

I think I will finish with these words. Sadly I did not write my review early enough as wanted to do some testing and research on slot first and close to deadline now :)

PS sorry for bringing original BerryBurst slot into this as should only have been a review of BerryBurst MAX but felt I wanted to give my input on this.

You still made the deadline as with your other comments below I believe!

MAX concept:

 

I will assume this first release was to get the new MAX concept started as the 2 releases share exact same feature etc.

 

To start off with please don’t take it negatively but releasing 2 different versions for slots I think will more confuse new slots players and even myself as an experienced player I will pick one and stick with it.

If taking BerryBurst and MAX I think the most played of these 2 will actually be the normal version with higher RTP. As overall chances of hitting the biggest wins are so low that in long run is a better choice to stick with lower volatility.

To be honest if I wanted to play a slot with high volatility then it would not be BerryBurst MAX but instead Dead or Alive or a slot from a different slot provider with a higher max win chance.

Please don’t get me wrong I already spoken positively about your graphics and music in slot = high quality but really we need to see new unique slots where then you could use the MAX concept.

I feel would be great to see you releasing some of the older slots though with MAX but I would much rather see something new and nice.

But if I had to give a suggestion of old slots then my biggest wish would be a modified Dead or Alive MAX version this would be really cool. What I would have in mind would be maybe a wild respin in this slot could work as sticky wilds or just simple expanding wilds. But of course be careful not to ruin this original excitement the free spin feature already has.

Other ideas for DOA could add a new element which gives a chance of extra spins or maybe a random wild added there are a lot of small extra features that could be added. Also, some new music and great graphics to make it stand out (I know you can do it NetEnt) if you don’t make a MAX for this slot then please make a DOA 2 and go crazy with a 243 ways could be a MAX idea :)

For other old titles, I would love to see others has already given great examples so I don’t really want to use their ideas or words but just simply gives you some titles here I think would be great.

Steam Tower, Tornado, Drive multiplier Mayhem, South Park (someone already suggested this but I know not a chance because of the license but who knows might come back).

To finish off I hope you will have a think about releasing 2 versions of new slots and hope instead you would stick with just a new unique MAX slot as I already gave my view and opinion on. I might be totally wrong and many others don’t agree but at least I have given my view on this :)

You can draw a slight likeness to what Microgaming did with Game OF Thrones a 15 line version and 243 version (I did also not like this as got confused and sometimes played the wrong version) I feel 1 slot should be it.

Thanks again for great promotion and had fun while back with the spins you gave us. Good luck to everyone now. (PS and sorry I forget to give my input about MAX as well so here you go wish I had more time to put all my thoughts and ideas down proper but hope you understand my words in a whole hehe)

This is great, great great!  Let me ask - if we were to release a MAX version of our classic slots - would you want another version - or we add it as an option (i.e. MAX Mode) to the original game when you load it up?

Hey fellow casino grounds community. I've been watching the forum + your youtube and twitch channels for quite some time now, so I thought it would be about time to participate a bit on my own.

Here is my review on Berryburst Max:
 

  • aspects I liked the most: ?
  1. The starburst game style mixxed up with the new Max Clusterpay feels very refreshing
  2. It feels like you hit more wins due to the clusters than you would on the normal starburst line play
  3. The summer theme feels fresh and fitting and is worked out well
  4. Upon hitting a wild the thrill for a big win or addidtional wilds is way bigger than in starburst
  5. The animation and the sounds upon hitting a wild are cool and feel kinda satisfying
  6. Also the Sounds and screens when you hit a win/big win/ super big win are solid
  7. The RTP felt fair so far with many small/medium wins while still having the potential for big ones
  • Aspects that I would have done differently: ?
  1. Even though I know that it is intended - I still kinda miss a feature other than the expanding wilds or a bonus.
    It would be awesome if there would be a way that fruitgames/starburst-like games could have a bonus and still run the same style.
  2. I liked the theme around berries, even though there are quite a few berry themed games out there allready.
    But if you do game that even has the word berry in it's title - why add limes and tangerines as paysymbols?
  3. The music is catchy at first but gets annoying pretty fast.To me the mix of relaxing and summer/party music is pretty odd.


Summary:

I liked the idea of putting together the different aspects of starburst and cluster games like Aloha or the Legend of Shangri-La.
Also I am looking forward to see the new Max concept on other Netent games preferably on some that have free spins or bonuses

 


 

Thanks @Excelstor

Glad you liked the Cluster Pays and their effect on allowing the stacked symbols to pay a bit more regularly made it work great on a 5x3 setup like this game..  For your point 1. on improvements - did you ever play Fruitshop? Does that fit what you're looking for? Point 2. You don't know how many discussions we had on this inside NetEnt!  Never underestimate the power of alliteration when you name games though (even if there are factually incorrect about the subject matter :P

Thanks for the input on other MAX games.  Any particular games you would like us to MAX?

Thanks

BerryBurst review

Here is some short feedback on BerryBurst Max

 

First of all, I am honestly not much for games without a real bonus function of some sort. Of course I realize that the wild reel respin is kind of a function. I will call it a good upgrade over Starburst though

 

A few things I was surprised about in terms of volatility

  • Same amount of symbols as Starburst. I kind of expected there tobe one more symbol, and let the premiums be even more important

  • To me, I wish it started paying at 6 symbols instead of 5 to eliminate, simply to make that every wi. Is actually profit on the individual spin

  • I personally also would prefer if Big Win screen started slightly higher,I want to say 30x, but 20x could make sense as well. Also to differ Max Slots from “regular" Netent slots

 

More about the Slot itself.

  • I actually do like the music, it goes in on me and to me the music is perhaps NetEnts strongest side right now. Maybe best in business in general (where BTG has the best big win music.

  • It is probably a well thought through decision, but I really would have wanted a “burst” sound as the Wild appears, instead of when the wild extends. Also to make some excitement during the spin.

 

  • Also the graphics is solid to me, The color scheme seems well thought through and works well for my eyes at least.

 

Again overall it’s not my type of slot, but for what it is, it looks nice. Now lets wait and see what I am really gonna think about it, since lets be honest. In the end it is about what we “win” :)

 

Max Concept

If I should say a little bit about of a good slot for Max Concept, it would probably include some kind of multiplier build up.

 

You guys at NetEnt had it in an old slot that I cant remember the name of now, but it included planets, where the multiplier could get up to like 64 or something like that.

 

What I was thinking though was a multiplier that could get up to 10 and would increase by 1 on winning spins decrease by 2 or 3 on losing spins. Also with some kind of feature with double or triple potential multiplier and more steep steps in percentage. So a 2+ multiplier on wins and - ⅘ on losing spins.

On regular spins “we" obviously would pay for every spin.

 

In terms of graphics I have no idea :)

 

This is AWESOME!  LOVE this kind of feedback.  There is some great stuff in here, thanks so much Martanic!

@Burgles

Ive never been a fan of starburst but ill give this one a try once it comes out, i dont think it will be one i will play alot since for me it would get boring fast with only having the wilds to go for, if it had some kind of free spins or some kind of bonus game where you could get some smaller wins to keep it interesting it while having the huge potential for the wilds hits, then i would be easyere for me to get hooked, the design of the slot and the sounds are good.

Do DOA MAX now that would be crazy stacked wilds DOA, but why not go for the highest potential slot ever.

Hey @dkmikes

No worries, Starburst is not for everyone, this is why we took it in another direction.  Added the Wilds to All reels, lessened blocking stacks on a 5x3 Reel set up and having some spice in the MAX version.  It's a simple game, but boy when you get that 2nd Stacked wild come in, it can give you something quite special back.

The game is live so try it out.  I think the CG guys are running a freespin giveaway you might want to ask them about!

Cheers and keep the feedback coming!

No problem! A question regarding the South Park games. Did you guys cancel the renewal of the license because not enough people played them? I love South Park and I loved the craziness of the slots haha :D

We didn't renew correct!  I'm relatively new at NetEnt so I'm not entirely sure of the history, but there would be a good reason for it for sure.  Good to know you loved the games!

It's good to see you guys going back to your roots of what made netent a slot power-house.

Game's with near endless potential (Take Deado r alive, wild turkey, alien robots, jack and the beanstalk to name a few)

 

As of recent years I feel the games have been tailored more towards the casual market and wagering games. None I can really think of for the past few years have ever interested me that much.

Now with MAX you have given your company massive hope and a potential mastermind because with this new MAX Feature you are able to re-create the amgic that made netent again!

It'd be interesting to see how this develops and I will not write more of a review about this concept until I've seen the gains and posbilities.

 

Once again brilliant concept now let's see it flurish!

It could also be because the South Park brand didn't want to be connected to gambling anymore (?)

Are these slots you think we should MAX?  @All What are your favourites?

Not sure whether I'll try to get a bigger win again soon as I've its cost 500 time stake to get one Boss Free spins Bonus in just over 1000 spins, but think I'll will lay again in the future for nostalgia reasons, as didn't get to see (fight) all the characters.

Is there possibility to cheat this competition by simply building towards the Beat The Boss freespins on a high stake, say £10 then switch to 40p for the trigger to represent a bigger x win as the Bonus is based on average stake on the build?

In about 500+ spins and on minimum stake this game stripped me of £60 very quickly. I unfortunately didn't even get a win over 30x+ to be able to show neither a beat the boss bonus. Love the aesthetic and the idea of the game but the pays are harsh.

It is brutal, took £200 off me on 40p stake in 1037 spins in under an hour. Where does it give back? Are we gonna see massive wins that compensate the brutal base game?

Hey Guys,

If you're worried about the base game being hard try stepping down the character you choose.  The CHaracter REALLY makes a difference on the experience.  KEN is the roughest ride but with the biggest potential pay out.  Versus Ken you can make the ride a bit softer with Chun Li, Blanka or the Russian Beast Zangief.  Hope that helps!

ROLL UP! ROLL UP!

From all the NetEnter's and from myself I would very much like to say thank you for the time, effort and care you have all put into both the Photoshop Magic you have displayed but also you feedback about Berryburst and the MAX Bigger Hits concept.  We really appreciate all of you.  

Now I have the difficult duty of announcing the winners of the Photoshop and Feedback Competition, this was very difficult.  We're all players here at NetEnt - so we like a bit of fun, a bit of crazy and a bit whaaa?  We also take the player feedback very seriously.  None of it is going into a black hole - we will be acting on some of this in our future productions!

So the PhotoShop Winners are:

BerryBurst MAX feedback

 

Design, Graphics and symbols

 

At first sight, the overall gameboard is very nice and pleasant for the eye. The background is very colourful, and I really like the gradient colour palette they have used. The spin panel is transparent which I think makes the gameboard “clean” and doesn’t take too much focus. This is something I want to see more often.

 

All the symbols are made in a “cartoon” like way (means they does not look to realistic) and I think that fits the slot very nice. I also like that the symbols are in constantly motion, it makes the slot lively.

 

When you get a win, symbols get expanded and make some waves with some really nice graphics added to it. When you hit a wild, it expands fast. No extra teasing just for a wild, good! I noticed that the two BerryBurst Max logos at the sides goes away, and in comes a big BerryBurst Max logo in the background when you get an expanded wild. Might this be the sign of the MAX feature?

 

 

 

Sound fx and music

 

I love the music! It has such a nice build-up from the start. If I close my eyes I imagine being at the pool, I can feel the fresh hot breeze, the music plays in the background coming from the pool bar, while taking a sip of my margarita drink :) I feel the music is varied and last long enough for not to get tired of it. Many slots have a short looping music, but I feel this is one of the best regarding playtime.

 

When you get a (SUPER) MEGA WIN the music get’s an extra nice loop to it, depending on how big the win is, the loops go further and cooler! Excellent!

 

The sound fx is a bit too loud compared to the music. When you get a win, I feel the sound is 100% more volume than the music, a bit too much in my opinion. The “bubble sound” when symbols stops really don’t make much sense in the theme. Are the berries in the water, if so, why? Another sound would be better, and not that high volume. I think it ruining the nice music with all that bubble sound, especially if you use quickplay!

 

 

 

Gameplay

 

I think BerryBurst Max is an easy slot to understand how works. You don’t need to learn what lines pays. All you need to know is that you need 5 symbols to connect. There are not tons of symbols, so is easy to distinguish the different symbols (I have to add this because some slots have symbols that is hard spot the difference, like coins in grey, bronze, silver and gold).

 

The spinning is just perfect regarding the speed. I feel there is no need to use the quickspin setting on this slot. Perfect!

 

The Re-spin feature when getting a wild is easy to understand, and basically the same as in Starburst. If you hit a new wild, you get one more spin, and this is obviously the most exciting about this slot. At the time I’ve played, I feel there is a good chance of hitting the 2nd and 3rd wild which will give you some good wins, depending on the wilds are connecting and if you have some premium symbols added to them. What you are looking for, and here is where BerryBurst Max is getting exciting, is the 4th or even 5th wild reel, which will give you a massive win. Even 4 wild reels with the re-spin should give you some huge bananas :)

 

 

 

Features

 

Unfortunately, the only feature is the re-spin function when you hit a wild. Even though it can lead to massive wins I feel the slot is lacking features.

 

 

 

Conclusion

 

I think the music and partially the graphics saves this slot. I am very certain I will drop by this slot occasionally, thanks to the music, but most for the potential of getting a dream hit up to 6000 times your bananas. We have been waiting a long time for another high volatile slot from NetEnt, and finally it’s here. When that is said, I don’t think this was the kind of slot everyone called for. Unless it had one extra feature you can read more about under “my suggestions” :)

 

If this had the same volatility as starburst, I’d still swap it for Starburst, but how often would that be? :)

 

 

 

My suggestions

 

Everyone loves slots with free spins! There could be scatters with free-spins feature with sticky wild reels when they hit. It’s like re-spins but you have 10 spins to collect wild reels. And why not: if you get 3 scatters with a wild symbol the trigger spin, keep the wild for the free-spins for a better start :)

 

Another feature could be triggered when getting 3 wild reels in base game re-spin feature, you are rewarded with 10 free spins with those 3 wilds in there for the free spins, giving you almost guaranteed wins, mega wins and even super mega wins. How awesome would that be? A feeling that can be compared to hitting a wild line in Dead or Alive, you know every rest of the spins is going to be massive! Best feeling for a slot player!

 

 

 

Thank you for reading, I hope you liked my feedback!

MAX concept feedback

I wasn’t sure what the MAX concept was (unfortunately I missed the start of the release stream), but I did some reading on NETENT website to catch up. As far as I understand slots will be released in two editions, a regular one and one MAX version with high volatility. I’m not sure if both slots will be available at the casino, or they have to pick one of them? Will be interesting to see.

If the MAX concept work as I think it will, it a smart move from NETENT. If you google or search on youtube for “big wins” you are most likely to see slots from BTG, Merkur and novomatics to mention some providers. Lately also slots from Push Gaming is more often to see. Of course there is still a lot of insane good wins on Dead or Alive, and a few Jack and the Beanstalk, as well as Book of Dead and Reactoonz from Play n’ Go. However, I think BTG has the majority of all the biggest win.

The MAX concept might be able to take NETENT back on the throne. The question is, will they dare to compete against some of the insane BTG slots with 10.000x+++++ wins? IF that is the intention on the MAX concept, I give my thumbs up! Still, as I said in my review, they need to make some slots with more features that people want to see, want to feel, want to play. It’s awesome to get huge basegame hits, but you need the high-five when those scatters drop in – bonus time! ?

 

There are some classics I’d love to see MAX’ed up!

1. Twin Spin

This is a slot I like very much, even though it has no free-spins or bonus. The sound and excitement when you get 5 reels synced is awesome, but I feel the potential is a bit too low, compared to Queen of Riches by BTG. If you MAX it up, you might snatch some QOR players easily :P

My suggestion: whenever a wild symbol hits, it gets expanded! I’ve had 5 reels synced, and a line of WILDS, but the win wasn’t awesome, because the other lines was 2 different symbols. Imagine that line expand for a fullscreen.

667623989_twinspinMAX.thumb.jpg.783e42607a6028f5fd796333f4ae81de.jpg

 

2. Steamtower

A very well know slot for most players, where the free-spins isn’t many spins away. What I like is that the bonus doesn’t only offer free-spins with potential more winnings than the basegame, but also a goal to reach the top (which I’d think should be rewarded much more, because it’s hard to reach the top!)

My suggestion: whenever a wild hits in bonus, it gets expanded (and 6+ spins ?)

1474154033_SteamtowerMAX.thumb.jpg.67f2b4eb6ef5b61b77b07478e62e6099.jpg

 

3. Drive multiplier mayhem

This has potential when the X2-X5 hits on a line. But what if all those could go fullscreen? What an insane hit that would be!

My suggestion: When you hit a X2-X5 wild you can either get the reel expanded, or the wild will spread out new wilds. Like, X4 wild will clone 4 new wilds, X2 wild will clone 2 new wilds. If you get one 2X wild and one 3X wild, you will get 5 new wilds spread out the reels. Imagine you get one X1, one X2, one X3, one X4 and one X5 :)

This is so very cool - plus you're a photoshop demon!  I will be sending this to the team along with some of the additional comments from the folks below!  Thank you!

Can I ask - what is you're favourite BTG game and why?  The 10000x is such a big lure?  Even though you're chances of seeing it yourself is very remote?

 

On 27/08/2018 at 21:08, luugius said:

I feel that you are going to the right direction with increasing the volatility of your games, while still offering a lower variance version. 

So here are my ideas regarding the MAX concept:

 

One of my all time favourite games is Reel Rush ( goes to tell I have over 5000 "Big win" awards on that game at Casumo only :D ). I think you could MAX that game by making the wilds act as 2x, 3x or 4x multipliers when you have achieved the free spins. That would act a lot of excitement!

Another Classic I would like to see maxed would be Secret of the Stones. Maybe take a page out of Yggdrasil's book, and make that game have maybe a "Golden bet", which gives 1 extra pick in the bonus, and "Platinum bet" which would give 2 extra picks. Then on top of that, include picks for making Reel 3 wild, or even Reel 1 and 5 wild as well. So basically playing the Platinum bet could allow you to get a ridiculous setup of something like "Reels 2,3,4 wild, 3x multiplier, Owl wild and 10 extra spins for some monstrous wins!

I agree with pausefisk about Twin Spin, even if the game allowed fullscreen of wilds or diamonds, it would pay a bit under 10 000 x, which still pales with BTG games.

NetEnt is quite known for great "license-based" games. Planet of the Apes is an awesome game, and MAXing it in my mind would require some kind of a "double bonus" if you managed to land 3 scatters in both reels on one spin. 

In general I am in a favor of putting a lot of RTP in to the free spins bonus, and then making the free spins difficult to get, but have a very high average win. Then the player can truly be excited when the free spins are won. 

 

Berryburst feedback:

I never play Starburst since it has no bonus feature and the max win is quite low. With Berryburst and Berryburst MAX you have fixed one of these problems, so I have played the game a few times and enjoyed it, even scoring a win bit over 200x! NetEnt games always run very smooth and have very honed graphics and sounds, and Berryburst is no exception. Great game in total, although I am not a huge fan of games that don't have a free spins feature. 

Thank you CG and NetEnt for this promotion, had a lot of fun with the free spins earlier, and maybe I am lucky enough to win something else as well :)❤️ 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you luugius!  Question:  how many spins would you want to wait until the Free Spins feature would kick in based on your comments of having more RTP in the Free Spins bonus? 200? 300? 400?

BerryBurst MAX my feedback/review

I have tried out BerryBurst Max with my own money finally last weeks’ time and also seen other videos on youtube or streamers play it.

For start first that springs to mind are with no doubt Starburst (could actually call it Starburst 2 which I guess it is hehe) Starburst on a cocktail tour :D

I think BerryBurst Max has really nice graphics and sound plus music also really nice and fits with the “Berry” theme. To be fair I think NetEnt has always been really good with graphics and music in slots if not the best then among the best.

At first, I actually thought it was 243 ways but of course, realized it used the same kind of cluster format as seen in Aloha cluster pays. So basically no pay line(bet lines) wins. This is perfectly fine and makes a more unique slot compared to Starburst.

Overall I enjoyed the slot despite this kind of slot is not my favourite but I would choose this if I had the choice between having to spin on Starburst or BerryBurst Max.

I am more into slots that gives you a feature round free spins or bonus round (something exciting to look forward to) and not just a few respins with wilds.

To finish off I see a problem having 2 versions like BerryBurst. It will confuse new slot players and they won't understand really what the difference is. As in reality it's only the “paytable” features on BerryBurst or MAX versions is the same apart from 6000x max win to 3000x max win.

I think I will finish with these words. Sadly I did not write my review early enough as wanted to do some testing and research on slot first and close to deadline now :)

PS sorry for bringing original BerryBurst slot into this as should only have been a review of BerryBurst MAX but felt I wanted to give my input on this.

You still made the deadline as with your other comments below I believe!

MAX concept:

 

I will assume this first release was to get the new MAX concept started as the 2 releases share exact same feature etc.

 

To start off with please don’t take it negatively but releasing 2 different versions for slots I think will more confuse new slots players and even myself as an experienced player I will pick one and stick with it.

If taking BerryBurst and MAX I think the most played of these 2 will actually be the normal version with higher RTP. As overall chances of hitting the biggest wins are so low that in long run is a better choice to stick with lower volatility.

To be honest if I wanted to play a slot with high volatility then it would not be BerryBurst MAX but instead Dead or Alive or a slot from a different slot provider with a higher max win chance.

Please don’t get me wrong I already spoken positively about your graphics and music in slot = high quality but really we need to see new unique slots where then you could use the MAX concept.

I feel would be great to see you releasing some of the older slots though with MAX but I would much rather see something new and nice.

But if I had to give a suggestion of old slots then my biggest wish would be a modified Dead or Alive MAX version this would be really cool. What I would have in mind would be maybe a wild respin in this slot could work as sticky wilds or just simple expanding wilds. But of course be careful not to ruin this original excitement the free spin feature already has.

Other ideas for DOA could add a new element which gives a chance of extra spins or maybe a random wild added there are a lot of small extra features that could be added. Also, some new music and great graphics to make it stand out (I know you can do it NetEnt) if you don’t make a MAX for this slot then please make a DOA 2 and go crazy with a 243 ways could be a MAX idea :)

For other old titles, I would love to see others has already given great examples so I don’t really want to use their ideas or words but just simply gives you some titles here I think would be great.

Steam Tower, Tornado, Drive multiplier Mayhem, South Park (someone already suggested this but I know not a chance because of the license but who knows might come back).

To finish off I hope you will have a think about releasing 2 versions of new slots and hope instead you would stick with just a new unique MAX slot as I already gave my view and opinion on. I might be totally wrong and many others don’t agree but at least I have given my view on this :)

You can draw a slight likeness to what Microgaming did with Game OF Thrones a 15 line version and 243 version (I did also not like this as got confused and sometimes played the wrong version) I feel 1 slot should be it.

Thanks again for great promotion and had fun while back with the spins you gave us. Good luck to everyone now. (PS and sorry I forget to give my input about MAX as well so here you go wish I had more time to put all my thoughts and ideas down proper but hope you understand my words in a whole hehe)

This is great, great great!  Let me ask - if we were to release a MAX version of our classic slots - would you want another version - or we add it as an option (i.e. MAX Mode) to the original game when you load it up?

Hey fellow casino grounds community. I've been watching the forum + your youtube and twitch channels for quite some time now, so I thought it would be about time to participate a bit on my own.

Here is my review on Berryburst Max:
 

  • aspects I liked the most: ?
  1. The starburst game style mixxed up with the new Max Clusterpay feels very refreshing
  2. It feels like you hit more wins due to the clusters than you would on the normal starburst line play
  3. The summer theme feels fresh and fitting and is worked out well
  4. Upon hitting a wild the thrill for a big win or addidtional wilds is way bigger than in starburst
  5. The animation and the sounds upon hitting a wild are cool and feel kinda satisfying
  6. Also the Sounds and screens when you hit a win/big win/ super big win are solid
  7. The RTP felt fair so far with many small/medium wins while still having the potential for big ones
  • Aspects that I would have done differently: ?
  1. Even though I know that it is intended - I still kinda miss a feature other than the expanding wilds or a bonus.
    It would be awesome if there would be a way that fruitgames/starburst-like games could have a bonus and still run the same style.
  2. I liked the theme around berries, even though there are quite a few berry themed games out there allready.
    But if you do game that even has the word berry in it's title - why add limes and tangerines as paysymbols?
  3. The music is catchy at first but gets annoying pretty fast.To me the mix of relaxing and summer/party music is pretty odd.


Summary:

I liked the idea of putting together the different aspects of starburst and cluster games like Aloha or the Legend of Shangri-La.
Also I am looking forward to see the new Max concept on other Netent games preferably on some that have free spins or bonuses

 


 

Thanks @Excelstor

Glad you liked the Cluster Pays and their effect on allowing the stacked symbols to pay a bit more regularly made it work great on a 5x3 setup like this game..  For your point 1. on improvements - did you ever play Fruitshop? Does that fit what you're looking for? Point 2. You don't know how many discussions we had on this inside NetEnt!  Never underestimate the power of alliteration when you name games though (even if there are factually incorrect about the subject matter :P

Thanks for the input on other MAX games.  Any particular games you would like us to MAX?

Thanks

BerryBurst review

Here is some short feedback on BerryBurst Max

 

First of all, I am honestly not much for games without a real bonus function of some sort. Of course I realize that the wild reel respin is kind of a function. I will call it a good upgrade over Starburst though

 

A few things I was surprised about in terms of volatility

  • Same amount of symbols as Starburst. I kind of expected there tobe one more symbol, and let the premiums be even more important

  • To me, I wish it started paying at 6 symbols instead of 5 to eliminate, simply to make that every wi. Is actually profit on the individual spin

  • I personally also would prefer if Big Win screen started slightly higher,I want to say 30x, but 20x could make sense as well. Also to differ Max Slots from “regular" Netent slots

 

More about the Slot itself.

  • I actually do like the music, it goes in on me and to me the music is perhaps NetEnts strongest side right now. Maybe best in business in general (where BTG has the best big win music.

  • It is probably a well thought through decision, but I really would have wanted a “burst” sound as the Wild appears, instead of when the wild extends. Also to make some excitement during the spin.

 

  • Also the graphics is solid to me, The color scheme seems well thought through and works well for my eyes at least.

 

Again overall it’s not my type of slot, but for what it is, it looks nice. Now lets wait and see what I am really gonna think about it, since lets be honest. In the end it is about what we “win” :)

 

Max Concept

If I should say a little bit about of a good slot for Max Concept, it would probably include some kind of multiplier build up.

 

You guys at NetEnt had it in an old slot that I cant remember the name of now, but it included planets, where the multiplier could get up to like 64 or something like that.

 

What I was thinking though was a multiplier that could get up to 10 and would increase by 1 on winning spins decrease by 2 or 3 on losing spins. Also with some kind of feature with double or triple potential multiplier and more steep steps in percentage. So a 2+ multiplier on wins and - ⅘ on losing spins.

On regular spins “we" obviously would pay for every spin.

 

In terms of graphics I have no idea :)

 

This is AWESOME!  LOVE this kind of feedback.  There is some great stuff in here, thanks so much Martanic!

@Burgles

Ive never been a fan of starburst but ill give this one a try once it comes out, i dont think it will be one i will play alot since for me it would get boring fast with only having the wilds to go for, if it had some kind of free spins or some kind of bonus game where you could get some smaller wins to keep it interesting it while having the huge potential for the wilds hits, then i would be easyere for me to get hooked, the design of the slot and the sounds are good.

Do DOA MAX now that would be crazy stacked wilds DOA, but why not go for the highest potential slot ever.

Hey @dkmikes

No worries, Starburst is not for everyone, this is why we took it in another direction.  Added the Wilds to All reels, lessened blocking stacks on a 5x3 Reel set up and having some spice in the MAX version.  It's a simple game, but boy when you get that 2nd Stacked wild come in, it can give you something quite special back.

The game is live so try it out.  I think the CG guys are running a freespin giveaway you might want to ask them about!

Cheers and keep the feedback coming!

No problem! A question regarding the South Park games. Did you guys cancel the renewal of the license because not enough people played them? I love South Park and I loved the craziness of the slots haha :D

We didn't renew correct!  I'm relatively new at NetEnt so I'm not entirely sure of the history, but there would be a good reason for it for sure.  Good to know you loved the games!

It's good to see you guys going back to your roots of what made netent a slot power-house.

Game's with near endless potential (Take Deado r alive, wild turkey, alien robots, jack and the beanstalk to name a few)

 

As of recent years I feel the games have been tailored more towards the casual market and wagering games. None I can really think of for the past few years have ever interested me that much.

Now with MAX you have given your company massive hope and a potential mastermind because with this new MAX Feature you are able to re-create the amgic that made netent again!

It'd be interesting to see how this develops and I will not write more of a review about this concept until I've seen the gains and posbilities.

 

Once again brilliant concept now let's see it flurish!

It could also be because the South Park brand didn't want to be connected to gambling anymore (?)

Are these slots you think we should MAX?  @All What are your favourites?
