As with any NetEnt release, Butterfly Staxx is hotly anticipated and it’s fair to say this has all the hallmarks of this top provider’s current crop. In terms of graphics, everything we have come to associate with NetEnt is very much on show here. Our setting, much like Jungle Spirit or The Fairytale Legends series, has an element of fantasy. We are in an exotic garden, so light on the symbolic, with bright petaled flowers and lotus flower wilds. Crisp production, top of the line design and ultimate interactivity in abundance, there is one thing you can always bank on with NetEnt slots and that is a clean, smooth slot experience. This is no different.
Butterfly Staxx is a 5 reel, 4-row, 40 pay line slot with Free Spins, Wild Substitutions, Stacked Symbols and Respins and a stated RTP at a healthy 96.80%. With a minimum stake of 20 cents, this game has something for everyone. Whether someone who enjoys game play or those hunting the larger wins and playing higher stakes.
This game offers much in the way of interactive features. With crisp design and production in tandem and nice features, Butterfly Staxx is a genuinely entertaining slot. Aside from the Butterfly Spins Feature, the eventual goal of anyone playing this game, there is also a great re-spin mode. This gets triggered by hitting an entire reel of butterflies. All butterfly symbols, once hit, move to the leftmost position on their row and each butterfly hit once the re-spin feature has begun, triggers a further spin. Spins stop when the butterflies stop but hopefully that’s not before all reels/rows are full!
If a player hits 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols on the reels, they win 5,6 or 7 Butterfly Spins respectively. At this point, the entire screen of symbols is replaced with cocoons and the ‘name of the game’ is to turn each into a beautiful butterfly! As they accumulate, the butterflies fly to the leftmost point and players have until the end of the allotted amount of spins to convert as many as one can.
Ultimately, this NetEnt release brings everything we have come to expect from this slots giant. Clean, top notch production and interactive features galore. Simpler than most of its recent predecessors with less story based features etc. Butterfly Staxx does have a kind of charm others don’t and is worth a go!
