Berryburst MAX from NetEnt: Slot Review - a touch of sweetness!

Create a delicious fruit smoothie to win a sweet payout when you play this superb online slot!

This brand new release from software giants NetEnt is all about tasty fruit and concocting a delicious fruit smoothie to toast the end of the summer. NetEnt actually released 2 different versions of this slot called Berryburst and Berryburst MAX. We decided to review the ‘MAX’ version as it offers much bigger juicier wins but you should be aware that it also comes with higher volatility. Read on as we try to make the perfect summer cocktail full of fruity goodness that will hopefully lead to lots of tasty wins on the reels!

Berryburst MAX is a 5 reel slot that includes Cluster Pays, Wild Substitutions, Expanding Wilds, and Respins.

Special Features

The first feature to mention is that this game features a Cluster Pays mechanic which means that there is no payline structure whatsoever. Wins are formed when a symbol is part of a cluster if it is horizontally or vertically adjacent to the same symbol. You must land clusters of 5 or more symbols in order to create a win. This kind of system is quite popular in other NetEnt games and can be seen in slots such as The Legend of Shangri-La: Cluster Pays and Aloha! Cluster Pays.

The Wild symbol in this game is represented by an ice cube with the letter ‘W’ inside of it. Like most Wild symbols, its main function is to substitute for all other symbols to help form winning combinations on the reels. If you manage to land a Wild anywhere on the reels in the main game then it will automatically expand to cover an entire reel and give you a nice Respin! During a Respin, Wilds will lock into place and if you land another Wild then you will be awarded another Respin. If you are lucky enough to turn all 5 reels Wild then you will bag yourself the top jackpot prize worth an incredible 6,000X your stake!

Theme and Graphics

The game features beautiful 3D graphics that are bursting with detail and colour. The reels are set in front of an extremely stylish purplish orangey pattern. Symbols are wonderfully rendered onscreen and consist of an assortment of tasty fruit including Raspberries, Blueberries, Oranges, Limes, and your standard Hear/Diamond/Spade icons. The animations are a real visual feast for the eyes as symbols ripple and enlarge when part of a winning cluster. In particular, I really like when the Wild appears and expands to trigger lots of bubbles fizzing up from the bottom of the screen.

The music is catchy with a slow techno summery backing track. It ties in really well with the fruit theme of the game.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game features 5 reels, a good RTP of 96.23%, and a top maximum payout worth 6,000X your total bet.

Below is a summary taken from the PayOut Table from the game. The amount won for each combination depends on the value of the bet when you spin the reels.

Coin Value: 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20, 0.50, 1.00, 2.00

  • Raspberry Symbol: 30 for 5X, 50 for 6X..5,000 for 14X, 10,000 for 15X

Our Verdict on Berryburst MAX

Berryburst MAX comes from top software provider NetEnt and is a highly enjoyable slot to play. Sometimes the most basic bonus features offer the most fun and entertainment and this slot is the perfect example of that. It’s really easy to play, features amazing graphics, stunning animations, a lively soundtrack, and there’s plenty of scope here to land a fruity fortune thanks to the Respins you are awarded whenever the Wild symbol pops up. With this game being the ‘MAX’ version, it offers much bigger payouts than the original slot but is also highly volatile so you can expect to endure quite a few dry spins before you eventually are rewarded with a big payout on the reels. For slots with a similar fruit theme, check out Fruit Spin and Sweet 27.
