NetEnt is celebrating 10-years since the launch of Starburst, hailing it as “an iconic game for the industry”.

In the last two years alone, Starburst has seen over 18 billion spins. NetEnt has praised the games animation, graphics and bonus features as reasons for its longevity.

The igaming supplier celebrated this anniversary by hosting a Starburst celebration event for its game creators and operators, including live music, Starburst themed photo booths and a 3D mapped birthday cake. 

Todd Haushalter, Chief Product Officer at Evolution, commented: “The event was an incredible way of celebrating Starburst’s 10-year anniversary. A decade-long run for a single slot game is an incredible achievement, and it’s been a top favourite with players ever since it was first launched. From the looks of things, that’s going to keep going, and going, and going. 

“Starburst is the full package – an exciting, classic game that entertains you right from the start. I can’t wait to see what the next decade brings.” 

Starburst XXXtreme saw a revamp of the classic slot-title go live in July last year, adding new features such as buying bonuses and increased volatility. 

These celebrations come amongst multiple expansions for the Evolution group subsidiary. NetEnt games became available to another section of the Netherlands market, after a partnership was agreed with Holland Casino Online. 

A similar deal was made for expansion into South Africa after Evolution agreed a content partnership with Supabets.
