NetEnt turn from payline wins and back to cluster pays in their latest installment, Berryburst Max slot game. This is the offshoot of the very popular Berryburst game, and the differences are relatively subtle. The main difference is the slightly decreased RTP compared to the regular game, but this is more than made up for by the increased amount of money players can win. Please keep reading more of this Berryburst Max slot review.
Berryburst Max free play
Released alongside the full game, Berryburst Max free play is a fun way to learn about all the small tweaks made between the regular game and this max version, all without spending a penny. For those wanting to experience the fun and volatile slot game for the sake of the game rather than for money, Berryburst Max free play is also a brilliant option as you miss out on none of the features of the full game.
Fruits of labour
Spinning the reels, players will come across a whole host of different symbols. There are the industry standard suit symbols (Hearts, diamonds, spades, and clubs), although in this game they are encased within bubbles. More important are the fruit symbols. Players will be exposed to various types of berries, but also orange and lime slices. There is also a wild symbol, a W encased in what appears to be an orange jelly cube. This, like in most casino slot games, works to substitute for any other symbol, helping you create more wins than would otherwise be possible. In addition however, this cube expands to take over the reel it is found on, further increasing your chances of winning, whilst simultaneously rewarding players with a free spin.This continues if you find another wild in this free spin. If you can fill all 5 reels with this expanding wild, you are rewarded with 6000x your original stake. In short, it is definitely the symbol to look out for on the board.
Unlike many popular slot games, NetEnt opted for cluster wins rather than paylines with Berryburst Max. Clusters consist of five symbols or more next to one another, so that at least one edge of each symbol is touching another of the same symbol. The maximum win is for 15 symbols, and whilst this is difficult to achieve, it rewards you with up to 1000x your stake. This is far bigger wins than are on offer in the regular Berryburst slot game, which offers 500x your stake as the maximum equivalent. In fact, Berryburst max offers potential wins up to 3x bigger than that of its counterpart.
Return to player
As already mentioned, this “max” version of the game offers a lower RTP than the regular version, coming in at 96.23% compared to 96.56%. However, this is the tradeoff for the potential of bigger wins, and it seems well worth it as the bigger wins are significantly bigger than any possible on the regular version of the slot game. To really test the game, Berryburst Max free play is highly recommended as it will allow players to decide for themselves if the change from the regular version to the higher but less often paying game is truly worth it.
