What is this mobile slot about?

The first of the max slots by Netent, can this higher variance game really beat the original fruity fun fare?

Berryburst Max mobile slot was released at the same time as it’s sister game Berryburst.

The difference? You can win twice as much on the Max version of this game… so that means this one will be the better NetEnt machine to play right?

Well, that’s what we are about to find out as we look at the difference and who has the better gameplay out of this fruity machine that has colourful and simple mechanics.

A Cluster Pays slot with wild re-spins features

This Berryburst max slot game is a simple 5 reels 3-row video slot with no fixed paylines.

Instead, you get wins by having 5 or more symbols touching each other diagonally or horizontally, up to a maximum of 15 symbol win.

That’s what is called a ‘Cluster Pay’ and you’ll find it in other NetEnt slot games such as the latest Lost Relics or even the Legend of Shangri La on mobile.

Getting 15 symbol wins isn’t easy, but if you can get a wild that expands to cover the reels, it certainly brings about bigger wins, especially if you can get those re-spins working to your advantage.

Is the Berryburst Max slot better than the low variance Berryburst?

So what’s the key difference between the two?

  • Max has a higher maximum win of 6,000 times your bet
  • You get a lower RTP of 96.23% and lower hit rate of 14.06%
  • Berryburst Max is a higher variance slot

For some, these maths will be a no-brainer. You can win six times as much here than in the lower variance machine, so why not stick to the harder hitting game?

Personally, because it’s just a little more boring. The cluster pays and the wild re-spins don’t hit often enough, which makes the base game more tedious.

These simple mechanics need the quick wins to keep you occupied, and 1,868 times our bet max win is enough for us. Hell, we are happy with the 500 times your bet max win in the Jumanji slot, because it felt like an achievable win.

That said, if you like your games slow and steady with occasional moments of high action, then by all means, Max it up.

In-game bonus features

Expanded Wilds: Whenever a wild symbol lands on any of the 5x3 reels, it will expands and covers the reel it's on. You will then get a re-spin of the four other reels.

If another wild lands during the re-spin, this will then also expand and you then get another re-spin. This continues until no more wilds show up.

Usually, you are lucky to get one or two.

Cluster Pays: You will need to get 5 or more diagonal or horizontal symbols touching each other to get a win, up to 15 symbol wins.


Closing thoughts

We gave both Berryburst slot versions a 3-star game review because, ultimately, both have the same mechanics and they are simple fruit machines to play.

Which one you choose to play depends on the kind of slot player you are; if you don't mind a slower pace of game, then the Berryburst Max slot on mobile is for you.

We played for close to an hour and go little more than 20x our bet, and little less, but there's no doubt that if you can get 11 symbols wins or more, the wins here are far bigger than in the other sister slot.

But getting 11 symbols or more requires a lot of wild re-spins, and we prefer the quicker pace of the lower variance game.
