Netents Butterfly Staxx slot preview

5/23/2017

Just in time for summer, NetEnt will release Butterfly Staxx on June 21, 2017. Upon first glance, this 5-reel, 40-line game offers the perfect nighttime-summer feel. It also features some nice music and exciting sound effects.

But is this enough to make Butterfly Staxx worth playing when it’s released in June? Find out as we preview this upcoming slot and look at its gameplay, atmosphere, and special features.

Gameplay and Atmosphere

Butterfly Staxx’s theme feels like a cross between fairies and butterflies. You’ll see glowing butterflies, sparkles, and bright-colored graphics. This game is set against a nighttime backdrop, where you’ll notice mountains, vegetation, and green floating specs.

We’ve seen better graphics from NetEnt. But few slots can match Butterfly Staxx’s atmosphere, which is both energetic and magical.

Besides the atmosphere, other quality elements of Butterfly Staxx include its music and sound effects. The music is a tranquil beat that has just enough flare to keep it interesting. The sound effects are a bit jarring because they’re so loud. But we still like the energy that these bring to the table.

One thing that could use some work is the symbols. You’ll see neon-yellow butterflies, different-colored flowers, letters, and numbers. Overall, this isn’t the most interesting mix of icons.

Betting options include Level (coins per line) and Coin Value. The preview tells us little about what to expect from these options.

But NetEnt games commonly allow you to change Level from 1-10, and Coin Value from €0.01 to €1.00. The paylines are fixed at 40, so changing them isn’t an option.

Butterfly Staxx Slot Special Features

Re-Spins – When you get an entire stack of neon-yellow butterflies, you trigger re-spins. These see the triggering butterflies fill the first reel. You then receive re-spins, and this continues until you fail to land new yellow butterflies.

Butterfly Spins – When you get 3 or more scatter symbols (purple flowers) anywhere on the reels, you trigger Butterfly Spins. These see the reels fill with green cocoons, and every yellow butterfly that you land on the reels stays for the remainder of your spins.

Final Thoughts on Butterfly Staxx

Butterfly Staxx isn’t loaded with special features, nor is it based on a recognizable movie or character. We also aren’t thrilled with the lack of originality in the symbols. But anybody can appreciate this game’s atmosphere, music, and sound effects. These three elements.

You can play Butterfly Staxx online slot for fun here on its releaseday or play other Net Entertainment slots for fun until then.
