Introducing Crystal Burst XXL

Crystal Burst XXL is the latest game from the developers at Gamomat and is seen as a substitute for Starburst from the gaming team at NetEnt. Both slots use identical inner workings, features and low volatility, however, Crystal Burst XXL adds more lines to the reels to provide a completely new gaming experience. Although Crystal Burst XXL is a fruit themed slot there is certainly a classic vibe which could be the games downfall, as a this may see players just walk away.
The whole slot is very simple, with a plain purple background and orange, purple and green buttons below the reels. Along one side of the reels, the player can see the lines available and choose their setting.

Bets, Pay lines and Prizes

The slot plays out over five reels and four rows, with you as the player given a huge amount of control over the number of pay lines; you can choose whether to use 10, 20, 30 or 40 pay lines. The next choice you have to make is the total amount you wish to bet on your chosen game area. Th bet range if you have all 40 pay lines in play starts at 40 cents and increases up to $120. The highest line bet starts at $3.

The top pay out is not that big, at only 500x you stake which equates to $60,000 and the slot boasts an excellent return to the player set at 96.16%. This is above average for most slots, which usually sit around 96%, and we would consider this to be one of the highlights of the slot. In the same way as Starburst, which I believe this slot is modelled on, the slot has a low volatility and will provide you with a regular stream of smaller wins.

When it comes to other pay outs that you can win there is 12.5x when you land 5 lucky 7s symbols. If you are lucky to cover your screen with Lucky 7s which is possible with a little help from the wilds, you can get a return of 500x your stake. It will soon become apparent to you that this slot relies on the expanding wilds which can be sticky and the re-spins.

Features

This slot has taken all of its inspiration from Starburst the slot from NetEnt and it is the same as Crystal Burst XXL apart from Starburst having just 10 pay lines. Currently, Starburst is one of the most played slot games, this could be due to the free spin promotion, or the fact that it is only available at the very best of the online casinos.
The wild symbol appears on the middle three reels: reels two, three and four. This is the only reels it will land on; however, it does have the ability to expand across the entirety of the reels. If the wild shows on the reels, even just once, the respin feature will be activated. Once the wild has expanded across the reel that it is positioned on, it will become sticky and hold in place while the other reels spin around it.

If the player is lucky enough to land additional wilds in the remaining two free reels, these will also become sticky having expanded. Since there is only three reels for the wilds to land and expand on, the most you can get in a single time is three respins. With all wilds in place, you are guaranteed to form winning combinations on all 40 lines, whether this be 4 symbols or 5!
The mechanics of this slot are fun but there is nothing new, or exciting, about Crystal Burst XXL and its features. Some may say it is simply a clone of the original, just with additional lines, and therefore needing a bigger wager to start as a result.

Theme and Design

The worst thing about Crystal Burst XXL is the classic fruit slot theme, which is present throughout the slot. Unlike the name suggests, there are no crystals to be found, only a small green gem that serves as a wild for the player.
The other symbols on the reels include the Lucky 7s (designed in red with yellow flames spurting from the base of the number), classic Bells, melons, grapes, oranges, lemons and of course, the slot classic, cherries. The quality is not as high as some other slots we’ve seen in the past few months from other providers; the fruit may look shiny however we can’t see that this is enough to make the slot any more appealing.

Conclusion

If you like the simplicity of a plain slot, or you’re a newbie to the gaming world, you might find some solace in Crystal Burst XXL. The traditional design and unoriginal gameplay make this a learning slot, with even the wins not making it a very playable slot.
High rollers and other players, we recommend you look elsewhere for a decent pay out. We think this is a nice slot, but there isn’t enough with the features, which are fun but purely a clone of Starburst, or with the design and theme of the slot to warrant a great review. Enjoy the lesson this slot can give you as a beginner player, or the warning it can give you as a higher betting player!
