Butterfly Staxx Slot
Butterfly Staxx is a butterfly-themed online slot game produced by game gurus – Net Entertainment. This serene game offers 3D game graphics and pleasant sounds to entice your senses, while re-spins and free spins features will appeal to the gambler in you, who only wants to see dollar signs all the way to the bank.
Theme, Soundtrack and Symbols
From the word ‘GO’, this slot game is stunning. The colours involved on the screen as well as the melodic tunes, do well to settle your senses and relax the highly-strung gambler in you. The transparent reels are a window on a beautiful wild valley ahead, where mountains, vegetation and a river headline the scenery below a dawn-lit sky.
The faint bird chatter tells of morning life. The odd yet relaxing little tune may put you to sleep rather than wake you up and has an Eastern twist to it in places.
The reel symbols complement the game to a degree. We say only a degree because the low-end value symbols are represented by some rather generic and boring card deck symbols (J, Q, K, and A). The higher-value symbols make clear the game theme. These are iconised by a golden butterfly, a pink flower, a purple flower, and a blue flower.
There are two special symbols. The wild substitutes for all symbols except the scatter to help complete winning combinations. The scatter symbol is instrumental in triggering the main game feature.
Butterfly Staxx is played over 5 transparent reels holding 40 individual pay lines. Strike up 5 Butterflies over one of these lines for a payout of 60x your line bet. The game holds a low to medium volatility with an RTP of 96.8%, yielding frequent smaller wins. The game is not a bank breaker.
The reels can be rolled after placing your bet of between 0.40 and 400 coins. To reap any decent wins, you will need to bet higher. Set the AutoPlay feature to automatically spin a preselected number of spins for you (between 10 and 1,000) so that you needn’t monotonously have to hit spin each time. This will allow you to multi-task. Perhaps you want to work while the reels flutter in the background – this is perfectly possible.
The bonus features in Butterfly Staxx are all about more spins, offering us both re-spin and free spin features.
Whenever you land a full stack of butterflies on a reel, you will trigger this feature. Immediately all butterflies on the screen with flutter off to the very left-most positions on the reels where they will lock in place for a re-spin of the reels.
For every subsequent butterfly that lands on the reels, it will join its friends on the left and the reels will once again re-spin. The game will payout for as little as two butterflies in a combination along a pay line.
Butterfly Free Spins
Land 3, 4, or 5 flower scatters anywhere on the screen to trigger 5, 6, or 7 free spins of the reels respectively.
All of the symbols on the reels in this round are cocoons. Some of them will be loaded with butterflies. If this is the case, the butterflies will burst forth and fly to the left of the screen as in the re-spin feature and remain in place until the end of the feature.
Play ‘On The Go’
Butterfly Staxx is available on NetEnt TOUCH, which means that the beautiful visuals will be available in HD on smaller mobile devices for player convenience.
The only change from the online version is evident in the game controls, which are adapted for simpler touch display gameplay.
CasinoWow Game Verdict
Butterfly Staxx is an adequate offering from slot masters, NetEnt. The game is a throwback to their previous Neon Staxx game style. The free spins and re-spins give players what they seek, but the lower game variance only pays in handfuls and not heaps. Having said this, the entertainment value remains solid.
For a quick flutter, we recommend playing from your Android or iOS device, where none of the gaming quality at all is lost.
