Butterflies are unique creatures that many around the world will find rather beautiful. Indeed, when they are caterpillars, they are perhaps not seen as an attractive bug, but that all changes when they transform. There is, of course, something rather magical about their transformation as well, which perhaps adds to the appeal many have with the creature.
NetEnt will know that these animals will have a huge pull for many, which is arguably one of the main reasons as to why they have produced their Butterfly Staxx slot game.
Butterfly Staxx slot game features 40 paylines across 5 reels that able to host four positions for symbols to appear. Players are able to float around with the butterflies for as little as €0.20 per spin, whilst high-rollers are able to place bets of up to €400 per spin!
Those familiar with other games from NetEnt will notice that there is a ‘Max Bet’ button available for those that want to play with the big money instantly. There is also an ‘Autoplay’ button available, which allows for a number of spins to happen uninterrupted, thus allowing players to experience the game the way they wish.
Symbols in the game include the traditional playing cards (J, Q, K, A) and these represent the low-paying values. Our Butterfly Staxx review managed to find that the paytable also had icons available that paid a little higher. These are represented mostly by the flowers of various colours, whereas the butterfly – perhaps unsurprisingly – is the most valuable and most important in the slot game.
The Wild symbols – which are represented by the symbol that says ‘Wild’ – can substitute for any normal paytable icon in the game to complete winning paylines. There are also Scatter symbols (represented by the icon with the word ‘Scatter’ on them), which trigger the bonus game known as Butterfly Spins.
Considering the slot game is called ‘Butterfly Staax’, it should not be a surprise that the butterfly symbol can come stacked. These are large enough to cover the reels and when they do, a free respin will be triggered. When this happens, the butterflies will fly to the left and take up spots on the reels. The rest of the reels will be respun and if more butterflies appear, they will move to the left and this will continue to happen until no other butterflies appear. This will then see the winnings accumulated throughout the round paid out.
The Butterfly Spins bonus game is basically a free spins game, however it has a twist. Players will be awarded either 5, 6, or 7 free spins depending on how many Scatters appear on the reels, however only cocoon symbols will appear on the reels. Some will be active on each spin, thus immediately turning into butterflies and triggering the re-spin feature. This process has the ability to continue to happen throughout the feature, therefore big prizes can be expected after every spin!
