Visit a bright world of tropical flowers and shining butterflies in Butterfly Staxx – a 5 reel, 40 payline slot from NetEnt. Playable from 40p a spin on all devices, this gentle game has a Re-Spins feature which is played when a stacked of Butterflies appears – all Butterflies then move to the leftmost reel with a re-spin. If more butterflies land, they also move left with more re-spins to follow. There’s a Butterfly Spins feature where you can get up to 7 free spins with only cocoon symbols – these can reveal active butterfly symbols which act exactly like in the Re-Spins feature.
Butterfly Staxx is powered by Net Entertainment and comes with 5 reels, 4 rows and 40 fixed paylines. Playable from 40p to £400 per spin on desktop (laptop/PC), mobile and tablet devices (including iOS and Android), this game is all about sparkling butterflies where the flowers bloom for you.
Visually, you are immersed in a bright world of tropical flowers and fluttering butterflies – it has a low polygonal art feel adding to a gentle and soothing playing experience. Symbols on the reels include regular playing cards (A, K, Q and J) as well as 3 tropical flowers and a shining butterfly which appears stacked. The wild symbol can appear anywhere on the reel set and substitutes for all symbols except the scatter.
When the butterfly symbol appears stacked and covers a whole reel, you will trigger the Re-Spins feature – all butterfly symbols fly to the leftmost position on the same row not occupied by butterfly symbol. They then remain in position until the end of the feature.
If a butterfly symbol lands in the re-spin, it will fly left and join the cluster with another re-spin to follow – the re-spins carry on until no more new butterflies land on the reels.
Then there’s a Butterfly Spins feature which is played when 3 or more purple flower scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels – 3 will give you 5 Butterfly Spins whilst 4 gives you 6. If you get 5 scatters, you will benefit from 7 Butterfly Spins.
During the feature, only cocoon symbols land on the reels – these can remain dormant or can become active. Active cocoon symbols landing on the reels which transform into butterfly symbol. As in the Re-Spins feature, the fly to the leftmost position on the same row. All butterfly symbols remain in place until the end of the feature.
Butterfly Staxx is a relatively simple game – the relaxed and soothing feel to it is represented well by its variance as it’s a low variance slot. On each spin, or Butterfly Spin, you can win up to 120 times your stake. If you get the full 7 Butterfly Spins on offer, you could end up with a cool 840 times your stake altogether.
