Berryburst – online slot review

When NetEnt, a Swedish company that has made some of the most incredible and fun online slot games around, announces the release of a new title, we at Lucky Pants Bingo know to expect something amazing – and Berryburst did not disappoint. Berryburst is a refined and fruity take on classic fruit machines, with a decent RTP (return to player) of 96.56%!

In this review, we’re going to look at how to play Berryburst, how its “cluster pays” mechanic works, the quality of the graphics and soundtrack, as well as the bonus features that make this slot stand out from the rest. So, hold on to your lucky pants, because we’re diving right in!


From the moment Berryburst starts, you’re met with a vibrant and funky, almost magical, soundtrack that whisks you away to a tropical island paradise. If the tunes don’t get you thirsty for some fruity fun, then the stunning and delicious symbols and graphics surely will. As the 5x3 reels come into view, you’re met with a beautiful set of fruity symbols on a sunburst background, and everything looks juicy and good enough to eat!

Berryburst’s controls are beautifully presented on vibrant purple buttons at the bottom of the screen, and the reels and symbols sway ever so slightly, as if they’re submerged in a delicious fruity cocktail, with bubbles rising from the bottom of the screen. Sure, fruit machines are pretty common at online casinos and bingo sites, but none is done with this level of class.


The 3D symbols in Berryburst look fresh and really mouth-watering. Low-value symbols include the standard card suit symbols – hearts, diamonds, spades and clubs – all suspended in tinted bubbles. The high-paying symbols are the juicy fruits – raspberries, limes, mandarins and blackcurrants. [Fun fact: oranges and limes are actually types of berries, just in case you were wondering why the game isn’t called “fruitburst”.]

The only thing a fruity cocktail like this one needs is some ice, which brings us to the final and most important symbol, the wild. Berryburst’s wild symbol comes in the form of a cool ice cube with a glowing “W” frozen inside. These are no ordinary wilds, though, but more on that later.

For now, let’s get to grips with how to play this juicy online slot game, so you can start shaking up some delicious, fruity cocktail combinations of your own.


Berryburst got nothing complicated: simply place your bet and spin the reels, and then hope that your pants are lucky enough to land some winning combinations.

There are some key differences and features that set Berryburst apart from any run-of-the-mill fruit machine, such as the cluster-pays feature, how you place a bet, and the exciting expanding wilds, so let’s go over those in a bit more detail.

Controls and bet sizes

Placing your bet in Berryburst is easy, and all done using the buttons on the control panel at the bottom of the screen. This is how you can control your bet:

  • The “Level +/-” button determines the value of your stake per line, while the “Coin Value +/-” button controls the coin denominations.
  • If you’re the kind of player who prefers to go all in on every spin, and you want to avoid all that button clicking to set your bet, you can opt for the “Max Bet” button to play the maximum value on every spin!
  • All that’s left now is to hit the “Spin” button and watch the delicious berries fall into place.
  • If you’re playing a lot of spins and don’t want to be bogged down with having to hit Spin every time, you can use the Autoplay feature to handle that for you. Simply set your bet value, select “Autoplay”, choose how many spins you want to trigger automatically, and then sit back and let the game do the work for you. Don’t forget to check out the advanced settings for Autoplay, which will give you a little more control over the automatic spins.

Cluster pays

Berryburst features cluster pays instead of the traditional (some might say “boring”) paylines that most slot machines use, and it makes for some fun and fruity winning combinations.

When the fruits and suits land on the reels, any symbols that are adjacent to matching ones, either horizontally or vertically, form a cluster. If you get a cluster of five or more matching symbols on the reels, you’ll be awarded a win. This means you can hit multiple wins on a single spin if you luck out and make multiple clusters!

Expanding wilds and respins

The wild symbol for Berryburst is the most important feature of this online slot machine and can change your spins dramatically. The wild ice cube can land anywhere on any of the five reels, but when they land, they expand to fill all three lines of the reel they’re on and will create clusters with any matching symbols on the reels on either side of it. But it’s not done being wild just yet.

Once a wild has expanded to fill the reels, it will remain in place for another spin, which means another opportunity to create some delicious, fruity clusters. If a wild hits on another reel during the respin, then that wild will expand and trigger yet another respin. This makes it possible for you to fill all five reels with wilds, which will pay out up to 500 times your stake!
