Butterfly Staxx

Butterfly Staxx pokie is a new game by industry-leading software developers NetEnt, and is the second game in the Staxx series (if you need a reminder, the first one was the hugely popular Neon Staxx pokie, which was released back in 2015). 

Known for its exceptional pokie games, NetEnt group rolled out Butterfly Staxx for summer 2017. The 5 reel, 40 payline Butterfly Staxx, as its name implies, carries a beautiful, tropical butterfly theme. 

One of the biggest attractions of the Butterfly Staxx pokie is that it showcases the brilliance of NetEnt’s creative team. The graphics and animations are truly a work of art, while the soothing ambience of the game sets the mood perfectly. This is the ideal game for players who want to bring their gaming action down a notch or two, but still hope to put themselves in line to win big.  Butterfly Staxx pokie also serves highrollers well with its $400 per spin option.

Jackpot 

The Butterfly Staxx pokie carries a fixed, non-progressive jackpot. While this may be offputting to some players., it’s actually a good thing. During the base game, the maximum win on a single spin in the base game is 120 x your stake. However, during the free spins feature, you can win 840 x your stake if you manage to land 7 free spins. 

This pokie machine is a simple, low variance slot game, making your gaming experience a relatively relaxing one – unliking some high-pressure progressive jackpot games, where players are often left wondering if the next spin will land them the big prize.  

Mobile Version 

Thanks to NetEnt’s award-winning Touch mobile software, players are able to enjoy Butterfly Staxx pokie on the go. While the pokie is playable on regular desktop platforms, it can also be played on mobile and tablet devices, across iOS, Android and Windows-powered platforms. The in-play features are clear, while the quality of the animations and graphics are not compromised when playing on your mobile device. Butterfly Staxx pokie is fully mobile-optimized.

Special Features 

This pokie has some very nice extra features for players to enjoy, including: 

  • Butterfly Respins: When Butterfly icons appear stacked on the reels of this game and cover the whole reel, Butterfly Staxx’s Respin feature is activated. When this happens, all the butterflies flit to the leftmost position on the row where no butterfly symbol appears and stay on the reels until the Respin feature is complete. When you do not see any butterflies on the reels, this means that the feature has ended. 
  • Free Spins: When you land three or more Lotus scatter symbols on the reels, the Free Spins feature is activated.  Depending on how many scatters you landed to trigger this feature, you will earn from 5 to 7 free spins. During the free spins, you will only find cocoons on the reels – some of them dormant and some active – which have the potential to turn into butterflies and fly to the leftmost position on the same row as in the Respin Feature.  There they will remain until the Free Spins are over, rewarding players exceptionally well.

Graphics and Sounds 

The relaxing theme of Butterfly Staxx pokie means that this is not your typical bells and whistles game with a ton of bonus features. Instead, the beautiful graphics contribute to the almost dreamlike quality of Butterfly Staxx. Combine all that with almost ethereal music playing in the background, and you have an overall winner. 

Bottom Line 

This is the pokie for you, if you’re looking for an online pokie which can be played seamlessly on any device, desktop, mobile or tablet. It’s also for you if you like your pokies to be entertaining with excellent graphics and animations, while being serene enough to make your gaming experience a calm one without compromising on the rewards potential, then Butterfly Staxx is the game for you.  NetEnt games are always winners, and you could be one too thanks to the software group’s latest pokie. But progressive fans be warned – this is not a progressive game, although it is a nice steady winner.
