Butterfly Staxx Slot review
Butterfly Staxx is a NetEnt slot machine that is all about nature and its beauty, with a focus on butterflies of course.
NetEnt has been offering excellent designs for a long time now, so it’s pretty much expected of all their slot machines that they will be of the highest quality. It’s true of Butterfly Staxx as well, a slot machine that gives us a design that revolves around nature, its flowers and the beautiful butterflies. The butterfly might appear only in one symbol, but the flowers are more common, coming in variants that are purple, yellow, red or blue. The design has a handmade look to it, especially the flowers and the poker cards, which look like they’re made out of colored paper. Overall, it’s an impressive looking game, and definitely not with the usual look for a nature title.
40 lines are used in total, on a layout which has 4 symbols for each of the 5 reels that will spin for you. You will find along the ways symbols which act as scatters or wilds, plus there will also be re-spins and Butterfly spins. The top jackpot in this case appears to go up to $1,200.
In order to cover its 40 lines, the game requires that you use 20 to 200 coins, so it appears that you’re only using 20 betting lines. The level of the bet decides how many coins you’re using per line, the range being 1 to 10. You select the coin value as well, using a denomination of $0.01 to $2. The game’s betting range will start at $0.20 and can reach $400, where the lines get $20 each.
The wild symbol is one of the features that you need to pay attention to. It substitutes for other symbols, but not for the scatters.
Re-spins are triggered when you get a full Butterfly stack to cover a reel. The Butterfly icons present on the screen will fly towards the leftmost position that is on the same row as they are. They become sticky there and the other positions re-spin. These end when you stop getting additional Butterfly symbols.
There are also 5 to 7 Butterfly spins that you can trigger, through three to five scatters that land on the reels. The symbols are all replaced with cocoons during these spins, and if you’re lucky there will be butterflies coming out of some of them. These can form combinations and they stay on the reels, moving to the leftmost position.
It’s an unusual game feature wise, and it looks great as well, so I think that it’s worth looking at, as most NetEnt slots are.
