A model for the Rapid X-ray Burster (MXB 1730-333) based on an accreting rotating magnetized neutron star in a binary system is proposed. The bursts are attributed to instabilities produced at an equilibrium surface above the poles of the neutron star, which is created by the infalling gas supported by a combination of radiation and relativistic gas pressures. The special feature of the proposed model is that, when accretion onto the poles is prevented by radiation pressure, relativistic gas streams out of the polar region.
