NetEnt Releasing Sequel To Neon Staxx

Tia Winter | 19 May 2017

Neon Staxx soon to be released by NetEntButterfly Staxx is soon to be the latest new pokies game from NetEnt to hit the mobile gaming market. The pokie will hit the Swedish developer’s casinos on 21 June this year, and comes as a much-anticipated sequel to the developer’s original Neon Staxx creation.

Neon Staxx was a solid release from NetEnt that attracted particular attention from players who enjoy an 80’s neon disco-style vibe to their pokies. The game offered stacked symbols and a potentially lucrative free spins round, in which players were guaranteed a stacked high paying symbol on each and every spin.

While many enjoyed Neon Staxx, some more discerning pokies players felt that the game lacked a certain entertainment factor. Butterfly Staxx is NetEnt’s answer to those players, and although the slots belong to the same collection, the new release is a very different ball game to the first Staxx-branded pokie.

Butterfly Staxx to Feature Big Bonuses

Both the Neon Staxx mobile pokie and the Butterfly Staxx mobile pokie play out over 5 reels, 4 rows, and 40 paylines, and both have a retro neon theme with bright symbols and graphics. However, a sneak peak of the new game has revealed that that’s where the similarities end for the two pokies.

The main attraction of Butterfly Staxx is its Butterfly Feature, in which plenty of neon butterflies will light up players’ screens at random. Here, if a player manages to land a stack of butterflies on reel one, they’ll automatically trigger a number of re-spins for extra winning opportunities.

During each respin, any butterflies that land on the reels will move to the left of the screen and transform into sticky Wilds as well, and will stay stuck in their positions until the feature ends. This creates the potential to land anywhere up to a full screen of Butterfly Staxx’s highest paying symbols, which could certainly lead to big wins for those playing at maximum bet.

Players Will Have The Final Say On 21 June

The free spins feature in the upcoming NetEnt pokie is also something different, with cocoon symbols appearing on the reels that may turn into butterflies. Again, the winged bugs will move to the left of the screen, acting as sticky Wilds for the remainder of the bonus round.

With up to 120x players’ triggering bets available as a top win, Butterfly Staxx will be one of the most anticipated pokies to appear at New Zealand mobile casinos in June. Players will find the pokie for desktop and mobile on the 21st of the month, and will soon be able to give their final verdict as to the winner of the great Neon Staxx vs. Butterfly Staxx debate.
