Theme of The Game
Butterfly Staxx is a game that shows you what NetEnt can achieve in a mobile slot machine, when they set their minds to it. This mobile slot is indeed inspired by the beauty of the butterflies, but for the most part it is nature that gets the attention of the developer.
I’ve found the graphics to be in the usual note that you’re probably used to if you’re a fan of NetEnt’s, meaning that they’re a lot of fun to look at. The unusual thing is that many of the symbols and even the background graphics appear to be designed to look like they’re made out of paper.
It’s not the case with the butterfly symbol, the only one appearing on the reels, but it’s true of the multiple flowers that show up, as well as the poker cards. Naturally, having a winning combination will trigger an animation for the symbols which are part of it.
The company that designed Butterfly Staxx has a very long and successful history behind it, as one of the first developers to start creating content for online casinos, back in the middle of the 90s.
They innovated often enough in the past, and they are known for the quality of the mobile slots they create, using HTML5 these days. More than 300 gaming destinations are relying on their games to keep their players entertained, and they’re doing a great job at it.
How To Play It
NetEnt has a certain way of doing things, particularly when it involves the setting up of a wager. As they often do, they’ve kept the number of lines fixed at 40 here, requiring a minimum of 20 coins each round (one coin for two lines). The level of the bet may be increased, getting up to 10 coins per line. The coins that you’re selecting for these games will be worth between $0.01 and $2, so the full range of a bet can be between $0.20 and $400.
It’s a pretty regular slot machine for this company, at least in the way it can be played. It uses regular lines, on 5 reels that get 4 symbols each, which is a common setup, even though it’s not the one that’s usually selected.
One of the flower symbols shown in Butterfly Staxx will get an image of a plant that has yellow and pink petals, with the word Wild written in front. It’s pretty clear what kind of feature one can hope to get out of this symbol. It is useful both for your regular spins and for re-spins, and it can be a replacement for whatever symbol needs it to form a combo, which is not the case for a scatter.
Butterfly symbols may appear stacked in the game, and they can form combinations which will pay up to 60 coins back to you. Should a full Butterfly stack occupy one of the reels, the event will trigger a re-spin feature. The butterflies present on all reels will move to the leftmost position they can occupy, so you can end up with a bunch of them grouped on the first reels.
The respins will continue for as long as you get additional butterflies to show up, and they will continue to group to the leftmost position they can fly to. At the end of the respins, you will be paid for the winning combinations that the butterflies have formed.
There is a scatter symbol as well, and it will give you 5 to 7 Butterfly Spins when it appears 3 to 5 times. These give you cocoons for symbols, which can turn into butterflies.
The payouts get up to 60x at most, which means $1,200 cash, but with a promise of features that can get you a lot of wins with those top paying Butterflies in them.
It’s an interesting game, especially feature wise, and with good graphics, though not as high end as those from other NetEnt slots.
