Enhanced Butterfly Staxx 2™ video slot brings even more magic with multiple play areas
Waiting for weeks already, today is the day that the Butterfly Staxx 2™ video slot is becoming available at the NetEnt Casino, bringing an enhanced version of the Butterfly Staxx™ slot that was launched in 2017 already. The sequel is bringing some changes including Multiple Play Areas, making this newest NetEnt slot the first of its kind! Keep reading to find more information about this new butterfly-themed game and its newest innovations!
Multiple Play Areas
Let’s get straight into the video slot features the brand new Butterfly Staxx 2™ video slot is offering as there’s a lot to tell. In my previous article about the Butterfly Staxx games, I provided the biggest differences between the two slots, even though I couldn’t connect all dots. Now the Butterfly Staxx 2™ video slot is available at the NetEnt Casinos, I have all information available and one of the details I couldn’t get my hands on before is the volatility of the game.
This information has become more valuable for the experienced players and some prefer low volatility while high rollers prefer high volatility in a video slot. Butterfly Staxx™ was a typical low volatile game. Butterfly Staxx 2™ doesn’t change much except that it’s upgraded slightly to a low/medium volatility slot. This most probably results in winnings occurring less often while winnings will be higher. Nothing obvious, trust me, just a small change that will be of interest for the more experienced players.
There has been a few obvious changes in the Butterfly Staxx 2™ video slot though as this game is the first NetEnt games with three Play Areas. The Planet of the Apes™ video slot has been offering two play areas, but for the first time, we’ll see the attractive number of three Play Areas which can be activated during the extra features.
In the above print screen, you can see how it looks when all Play Areas are activated thanks to the butterflies. There are two ways the Multiple Play Areas are activated with one of them being the Re-spins, activated when one reel is entirely filled up with these yellow bright sparkling butterflies or during the Butterfly Spins feature that has been recycled, although with an amazing three Play Areas available. The more butterflies, the better!
It’s either the one reel filled with these beautiful butterflies that’ll make sure your heart beats a skip or the pink roses lightening up from beside the reels, because either way, Re-spins are coming up. With only one reel filled up with butterflies, you stick to one Play Area, but this can quickly change when butterflies keep appearing with a second reel filling up with butterflies. As long as the butterflies keep appearing during a next spin, Re-spins will keep coming.
Let’s say Re-spins kept going because new butterflies showed up with every Re-spin and you’re now playing with two Play Areas. What’s next? Things start to look brighter and brighter as only one butterfly has to show up in one of the two Play Areas to keep the Re-spins feature going. That means that the chance all three Play Areas will be activated is growing and soon enough, you’ll have all three Play Areas to your disposal resulting in even more butterflies!
Butterfly Spins and Butterfly Frenzy feature
Why ditching what has been proved successful, right? That’s why the Butterfly Spins are reappearing in Butterfly Staxx 2™, although with an alternative bonus game available.
When three Scatters appear anywhere on the reels 1,3 and 5, you’ll be asked what is your preference. Are you going for the 5 Butterfly Spins with three Multiple Areas available or are you going for the Frenzy Feature in which you get the chance to pick Butterfly symbols and even to move on to the next level for even bigger wins?
It’s during the Butterfly Spins that you’ll find only cocoons on the reels which can be dormant or active. Active Cocoon symbols landing visible on the reels turn into Butterfly symbols after which they will fly to the leftmost position not already occupied. The Butterfly symbols remain on the reels until the end of the Butterfly Spins. And with three Play Areas available, there will be way more butterflies and more winnings to enjoy!
The Butterfly Frenzy feature is one of the new innovations, a standard pick-and-click game taken to new exciting levels. You pick out of several Butterfly symbols of which some will award coin wins and others can take you to the next stage in which you get another ten picks. With a total of 5 stages available, a truly magical butterfly experience is awaiting and the further you get, the bigger the wins will be!
