Butterfly Staxx is a simple and pretty 5 reel 40 payline pokie from NetEnt that’s filled with free spins and, well, butterflies. The name will remind some of you of another NetEnt hit – Neon Staxx, and if you remember, Neon Staxx was full of free spins. Butterfly Staxx is in many ways no different – this pokie is a free spin frenzy and with a RTP of 96.8%, you’re in for a fluttering good time.
How to Play
Settle in for a charming evening with Butterfly Staxx. Set your coin size, and in Level, you can set the number of coins you would like to bet per line, with each level being worth half a coin. There are 40 paylines that are always active, so this means minimum bet is at $0.20 per spin. After that you are ready to start spinning. If you want to start playing around with more advanced functions, hitting the Max Bet button will automatically set the Level to 10, without changing your coin value. The Auto Play button will let you set the number of rounds you want the game to spin by itself so you can kick back and put your feet up and watch the magic happen. The special symbols in Butterfly Staxx are:
- Wild: a pink flower that says Wild
- Scatter: a purple flower that says Scatter
Other symbols are as follows:
- Golden Butterfly
- Red Flower
- Purple Flower
- Blue Flower
- A, K, Q, and J
The Golden Butterfly are sticky and can trigger re-spins – which are basically free spins. We’ll talk more about that in the Special Features section.
Graphics and Sounds
It’s an easy, colourful evening in Butterfly Staxx. As with many NetEnt pokies, even though the game is very simple the graphics are elegant, and smooth. Wins will have the paylines light up and glitter. And when you get a stack of butterflies, watch them fly over to the left side of the reels while the flowers open. A relaxing musical soundtrack accompanies. All in all, it’s the perfect way to unwind while collecting some coins.
Butterfly Staxx has a fixed jackpot of 60x your bet value, which can be won when you get 5 butterflies on a payline. Undeniably, this isn’t much. However, Butterfly Staxx is the kind of game that doesn’t payout in big lumpsums, but rather small but frequent payouts. Looking at the next big wins, the flowers will all get you 40x your bet if you get 5 of them, and 4 butterflies will get you 30x your bet. The difference between the jackpot and other wins isn’t too bad, and with a bit of patience, you can still get a small fortune for yourself here.
Butterfly Staxx is all about butterflies and free spins. So let’s get to the core of this game.
Whenever you spin an entire reel of butterflies, the butterflies will pick up and fly over to the leftmost reel. They’re sticky and stay there while you get a re-spin – that’s a free spin. If you get more butterflies, they’ll also move left, staying on the same row, while triggering another re-spin. You’ll keep getting these free spins until no more new butterflies are spun. Your chances of hitting that jackpot just got better!
Spinning 3 or more Scatter symbols will activate Butterfly Spins. 3 Scatters will get you 5 spins, 4 Scatters 6, and 5 Scatters 7. What’s special about the Butterfly Spins feature is that during these spins, cocoons will fill up the reels, and some of them will be activated into butterflies. The new born butterflies will fly to the left side of the screen and will stay there until all the Butterfly Spins are used up.
Butterfly Staxx is full of sticky butterflies that will get you lots of free spins. Although there’s no big jackpot to be won, payouts happen frequently in this pokie and it can add up to a handsome little amount of money. It’s aesthetically pleasant and a perfect game to while away some time.
