Butterfly Staxx is an attractively designed, soothing five reel, 40 payline online slots game from NetEnt, with an RTP of 96.80% and a pretty papercut-style art design that creates a soothing, immersive gameplay experience.
Look and Feel
Butterfly Staxx has an array of pretty reel symbols in the form of a yellow butterfly and a selection of pink, purple, and blue flowers for the higher value symbols, while the alphanumeric lower value symbols are designed in a papercut-effect style.
During bonus rounds, the player may also see the green cocoon symbols, which can be active or dormant. There is also a purple flower for the scatter symbol, and a multicolored flower for the wild symbol, both decorated with attractive calligraphic text.
The transparent reels overlay a pretty, atmospheric background of a dark mountain scene, and the game is set off by a smooth, soothing and melodious musical soundtrack.
Butterfly Staxx offers forty fixed paylines, and bets are controlled through the ‘Level’ and ‘Coin Value’ selectors. There are autoplay and max bet options available, with the possibility of stopping autoplay spins early if required. The minimum bet per spin is 0.20, with a ceiling of 400.00 per spin. There is a maximum coin value of 2.00 and Butterfly Staxx offers ten possible bet levels.
The gameplay in Butterfly Staxx is quite simple, but well-designed, with minimal player interactivity. There are a couple of bonus features that add some spice to the game, however.
Butterfly Spins are unlocked by three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels in the main game. Three symbols earns five spins, four symbols earned six spins, and five symbols earns seven spins. During the Butterfly Spins rounds, only cocoon symbols will land on the reels. These may be either dormant or active, and active cocoons will visibly transform into butterflies, which will the fly to the upper left of the reels and remain there as sticky symbols for the rest of the spins, potentially landing the player bigger wins.
Butterfly Respins are triggered every time a complete stack of butterflies lands on the reels and move to the left. Wins are granted for as few as two like symbols on an active payline, and more respins can be triggered during these rounds.
Overall, Butterfly Staxx is a very pleasant, relaxing gaming experience and, with the possibility of some very well-paying wins on the cards, this game should appeal to a wide range of players.
