Ask any avid pokies player what their favorite feature of any poker machine is, and – aside from striking a lucrative jackpot – they’ll all agree that it’s free spins. In fact, almost everyone I know will pass on any game that doesn’t offer this valuable feature. But right now, all members of the LeoVegas online casino can get 3 free spins, every single day, all month long.
What makes free spins so darned popular? Well, as the name clearly implies, they’re free – and who doesn’t love getting something for free? Aside from that, they also tend to deliver a higher rate of payouts, either by striking more frequent winning combinations, or by paying multipliers (i.e. 2x or 3x payouts) throughout the feature – sometimes both!
Triggering free spins is an exciting occurrence for all pokies lovers, but wouldn’t it be even better to sit down at a poker machine and take a few free spins before inserting any money? That’s exactly what LeoVegas is promoting this month during The Starburst Festival.
The free spins promo began on March 4 and will continue through April 3, 2016. In order for a player to claim their daily free spins, they must first make a single, minimum deposit of just £7/€10/$15. Once that’s done, the player will be able to start spinning the reels for free the very next day, and every day thereafter until April 3, just by loading up the Starburst Slot on the computer, tablet or mobile device.
Free Spins on Starburst Slot
The title of the promotion—The Starburst Festival—alludes to the fact that those free spins are restricted to a single poker machine – you guessed it, Starburst. Developed by the leading games software company NetEnt, this popular reel spinner plays host to 5 reels, 10 paylines and some of the most vibrantly shimmering graphics you’ll ever see.
Imbued with a series of glimmering jewels and an enigmatic musical score, the game has a rather cosmic atmosphere. Surprisingly though, it doesn’t come with a traditional, built-in free spins feature. The only way to get free spins on the Starburst slot is through a promotional attraction like that of LeoVegas.
What it does have to offer, though, is 10 paylines that go both ways, left to right, and right to left. It’s also equipped with an expanding Starburst Wild that grows to cover the entire reel, and holds that position for up to 3 re-spins, which – in effect – does deliver an equivalent free spins feature. And you get lucky enough to score 3 expanding Starburst Wilds at the same time, it has the potential unleash the poker machine’s highest payout of up to 50,000.
Other Starburst Festival Features
Free spins aren’t the only attraction of LeoVegas’s Starburst Festival. Players will also be able to participate in a Lottery Drawing and a Points Race, and of course, it’s all tied into a player’s gameplay on the Starburst Slot.
Lottery entries are earned by wagering £7/€10/$15 on the poker machine. Each time a player does, they earn one more entry to the prize drawing on April 4, where 301 lucky participants will win one of the following prizes.
- 1 x £/€/$ 25,000
- 50 x £/€/$ 1,000
- 50 x £/€/$ 100
The Leaderboard Races work similarly, awarding 1 point for every £7/€10/$15 wagered on the Starburst Slot. Three weekly races will be held. The first, March 4-10, ends today. Tomorrow starts the second race, March 11-17, with the third running March 18-24. The prizes are as follows:
- 1st – Star Prize (see below)
- 2nd – £/€/$ 2,000
- 3-5th – £/€/$ 1,000
- 6-10th – iPhone 6s
- 11-20th – Apple Watch
- 21-29th – £/€/$ 100
- 30-50th – £/€/$ 50
