In October 2020, Gaming Realms entered into a licensing deal with NetEnt, the online casino gaming giant. The first game born from this collaboration, Slingo Starburst, has just been released. The game is a blend of the features from Starburst, one of NetEnt’s most popular online pokies, and Slingo, Gaming Realms’ signature genre.
In all of Gaming Realms’ Slingo games, win are generated by the ‘Win Spin’ bonus. This feature appears once three or more Slingos have been achieved. This has made the genre incredibly popular, as pay-outs can be as much as 1500 times the initial wager.
As course, NetEnt and Gaming Realms needed to create a game that is packed with features for their very first project together, and Slingo Starburst certainly does not disappoint. The online pokies hybrid has a lot of the features that players have come to know and love from each company’s respective original game, as well as a few new twists.
For one, the purple gem symbols reward players with an instant cash prize whenever a single spin reveals three or more. By the end of 10 regular spins upon the completion of the base games, an extra spin chance wheel will be activated. Should players then land on the green area, a free re-spin will be awarded to them on the Slingo online pokies reel. This will continue to repeat until the player eventually lands on the red area.
Once on the red area, a player will be given the chance to enjoy a maximum of five extra spins. Additionally, players will be given the opportunity to win a spin on the Starburst pokies reels, where they can enjoy a guaranteed win. With all of these features, players get to experience the magic that happens when pokies and bingo merge.
A Top Performing Game
Slingo Starburst was launched in New Jersey and will form a firm part of the online gaming platforms that have partnered with Gaming Realms. Throughout Europe, the Betsson Group will have the rights to the game and within the United Kingdom, Entain Group will own the rights. This means that players in New Zealand can enjoy all the action at top casinos that accept players from this region.
Since its launch, Slingo Starburst has proven to be a top performing online pokies hybrid game when measured against wagering and unique new players. The game is now live and is available on a number of sites across the United States, Europe and the UK
Mark Segal, the Chief Financial Officer of Gaming Realms, said that the company is delighted with the game’s launch.
