The average return for most slot games is closeted in a small band around 95%. However, the volatility varies considerably. So players with different requirements look at different slot machines. The pioneering slots developer, NetEnt, has announced that this will be a thing of the past when its new MAX product line is launched. The concept will simultaneously cater to different player groups with different volatility objectives and allow online casinos to address different needs with one game launch and one marketing push.

Players at several online casino forums have mentioned that NetEnt slots generally have low volatility and this is a turn-off. At the same time traffic continues to increase on NetEnt slots. MAX slot machines will be released in a tailor-made double game format that will take on board the the former group without losing the latter. One game will be for casual players looking for low volatility. The MAX game will be for players looking for high win potential. Both games will share similar return to player percentages and have the regular proprietary NetEnt game functionalities and mechanics.

The first title to go live is slated to be BerryBurst and the corresponding BerryBurst MAX. It is scheduled to hit NetEnt online casinos like InterCasino on August 23. This will allow online casinos to cater to the preferences of both casual players and aggressive players with a single, cost effective, multi-targeted marketing promotion. Henrik Fagerlund, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, said that it was important for the software provider to diversify the volatility in the slot machines because the licensees are demanding more flexible games catering to different player needs He pointed out that NetEnt is a supplier that listens to its customers.

BerryBurst was displayed at iGB Live Amsterdam on July 18. However, NetEnt did not reveal exactly how the MAX mechanic will work. This is understandable because game suppliers need to build up the excitement and suspense till the public release of the slot game. So players at NetEnt online casinos will have to wait to find out how will MAX affect the game play and how much of a difference will it make in terms of the actual winnings.

Some details about the regular BerryBurst were made known at the iGB Live expo. It has a fruity summer theme with peppy background music. The reel set is the standard 5x3 grid. The symbols are juicy refreshing fruits and playing card icons. Payouts are awarded, not on paylines, but clusters. The Wild symbol expands to cover any reel it lands on and grants a respin. For every additional wild you receive during the respins you will win additional respins.
