Theme of the Game
BerryBurst Max is a one-of-a-kind video slot rolled out in August 2018 by NetEnt. It was released coupled with an almost identical slot, BerryBurst. One can’t help but wonder why would NetEnt do such a thing – launch two slots with identical visuals and soundtrack, same symbols and features?
The answer is rather simple; they’ve decided to be the pioneers in releasing a MAX version of a regular slot.
In a standard slot, payouts occur quite often, though the sums are pretty low. In the max version, payouts aren’t delivered frequently, but once they land, they provide players with much bigger sums. So, the difference is essential, play to win small regularly, or opt for a calmer gameplay where awards don’t land as often but are significantly higher.
In any case, you will enjoy BerryBurst Max because of its impeccably developed graphics and sound. There are no standard reels and colourful symbols seem to float in a refreshing drink. Raspberries, Tangerines, Grapes and Limes take up the higher part of the Paytable. Lower-value symbols are represented with 3 playing card suits, Hearts, Spades and Diamonds.
It goes without saying that NetEnt is one of the most successful and reliable software providers. They strive to satisfy different groups of players, thus their effort to add a new dimension to their already extremely popular slots with the Max product line.
These slots do deliver payouts less frequently and lack features and action, however they provide greater prizes and will mostly suit high-rollers and players who are fond of a simpler gameplay. Who knows what we are in for with this new Max line? Will NetEnt start releasing new slots with a regular and max version or will we see some of their best editions revised and upgraded?
How to Play It
Though the game offers a standard 5×3 layout, it doesn’t have paylines. BerryBurst Max provides cluster pays, where at least 5 matching symbols must land on horizontally or vertically adjacent reels in order to deliver payouts.
As soon as the game loads, a simple control panel will appear, so that you can easily navigate it and adjust all parameters. Firstly, you can choose the number of coins you wish to wager, ranging from 1 to 10. Secondly, coin size can be selected on a scale from $0.01 to $1.00. Setting these two parameters will put your total bet in a range from $0.10 to $100 per spin. In the end, the only thing left for you to do is spin the reels.
You can do this just by pressing Spin or Max Bet button if you want to play the game at the highest bet level and your chosen coin value or simply by activating Autoplay, which will play the game for a number of rounds.

As far as Bonus Games are concerned, there aren’t any. The only thing helping you boost your wins is the expanding Wild, depicted with an ice cube, replacing all symbols. It appears on all reels and once it lands it expands to cover the entire reel.
But, that’s not all, this Wild will also award a Respin and remain on its reel while the other reels spin one more time. If another Wild lands during a Respin, it will retrigger the feature.
Maximised prizes are what BerryBurst Max is all about. Landing a cluster of 15 Raspberries will deliver 10,000 coins multiplied by the current bet level which adds up to a breathtaking sum of 100,000 coins if you wager with the highest bet. Another symbol delivering a hefty prize is the Wild.
It would take only 5 wilds to appear on the reels and expand to award you with 10,000 coins. If you are lucky enough to retrigger the Respin for a couple of times, you could be in for the game’s maximum payout which goes up to 6000x your bet. The win potential of the slot is backed up by a solid RTP of 96.23%.
For those who want to earn bigger sums, these Max versions of slots should satisfy their needs as they aim to boost volatility at the expense of more frequent wins. Though the slot has a high-win potential it lacks excitement and some action.
