Australian players at Leo Vegas online casino have the opportunity to win over $100,000 in cash and prizes, simply by playing leading online pokie Starburst.
From Monday, May 18, to Monday, June 22, Leo Vegas is giving their players the chance to win some serious cash, as well as some other generous prizes, for their Starburst Festival promotion.
Over the four weeks, players can spin the reels of the Starburst slot machine and potentially win a share of $100,000 in cash, as well as gain entry into the weekly draw for the chance to win some of the most popular Apple products on the market at the moment.
How to participate in the Leo Vegas Starburst Festival
Participating in the promotion is extremely simple, all you need to do is play the Starburst pokies and you will be eligible for the promotion – but the more you bet, the better your chances of winning the cash are.
For every $1 bet on the Starburst pokies, a player receives a ticket. The top 50 players who earn the most tickets will gain a position on the leaderboard, which is updated daily at 15:00 CET, and the player at the top of the leaderboard each week will win $2500.
Additionally, the winner at the end of the four week promotion (the player who has been at the top of the leaderboard overall) will win $10,000, with the overall top 100 players receiving cash prizes too.
It is important to note that since Leo Vegas operates in Central European Time, Aussie casino players need to check what time, depending where in Australia they are located, it will be when the leaderboard is updated. For example, for Aussies operating on Australian Eastern Standard Time the leaderboard will be updated at 12:00AM the following day. Additionally, the promotion will end for Aussie players on Tuesday, May 23 with the exact time dependant once again on where you are located in Australia.
Even if you don’t make the leaderboard you are still in the running to win some generous prizes. By playing the Starburst slot machine and earning at least one ticket, you are instantly entered into the weekly prize draw where you can win an iPad, and iWatch, or an iPhone. Obviously the more tickets you earn playing Starburst, the higher number of entries you have into the draw, but just one is enough to be eligible.
The draw takes place at 15:00 CET every Wednesday for the promotional period. Once again check the timezone differences because this will be every Thursday at 00:00AM for AEST players.
On top of all of this, players who deposit $30 into their Leo Vegas Internet casino account and wager it on the Starburst poker machine that same day, will receive five free spins on Starburst. Players can do this every single day of the promotional period.
The popularity of the Starburst pokies could be put down to the fact it resembles the more classic style of slots, with an Arcade feel associated to it. Featuring 5 reels and only 10 paylines, the additional features this Net Entertainment slot adds explains the real appeal, however.
Despite having a classic feel the graphics are quite modern and the special features see some generous payouts. The reels are lined with animated gems which may remind you of the game Bejewelled, the popular puzzle game for desktop computers, if you have ever played it.
You can win in any direction and players can also take advantage of expanding Wild symbols which sees the size of the payout increased. Land just one Wild and it will expand to cover the entire reel, with a re-spin then occurring to give players the opportunity to land more Wilds on the centre reels. This will see wins increased and these Wild symbols can also remain active for follow up spins.
While the gems don’t really make sense in association to the outer space backdrop, the audio does, but it is somewhat dramatic and may not be for everyone – there is a mute option available.
Overall, this pokies machine offers a 97.3% payout rate and is a fun pokies to play, especially for the above Leo Vegas promotion.
