NetEnt is in the process of releasing a new and innovative jackpot system that focuses on the community aspect of online gambling. This new system goes by the name Starburst PowerPots. Here players can work together to gain prizes for each other as well as themselves, using community features to grab shared rewards by playing with each other rather than against.
As you play, the PowerPots progress bar will gradually fill with each win that has been gained. The more players that play together to combine wins, the faster the progress bar will be filled. Once completely full, players will unlock a prize pool which will be divided equally between all participants in the game. Even if the players are offline, if they remain within the player group, they will still be able to earn prizes from the pool.
It isn’t just the prizes that are shared, but every other feature as well. The state of the reels, the value of the jackpot, the number of free spins earned and all other types of jackpots that are won. This even includes an additional upgrade to the jackpot named the Major progressive jackpot. Players can work hard to reach these new steps into receiving the biggest prizes.
Other features of the game can be adjusted accordingly to support the company of so many players. You can change these setting manually or let the system itself change automatically. RTP configurations, prize winnings and the user interface are all examples of what will be changed depending on the number of players taking part.
The NetEnt Director of Games, Bryan Upton, issued the following statement to express his excitement for this new form of community gaming:
“Using the Starburst brand will create massive acquisition while these jackpot mechanics will drive huge engagement for players.”
You can catch the new system at any casino partnered with NetEnt.
