NetEnt announces Neon Staxx™ slot
Never knowing what to expect from a new NetEnt video slot, NetEnt announced another original video slot today: the Neon Staxx™ slot. This entire retro style video slot is shown from a different angle, taking you back to the 80’s, while offering Free Spins, Scatter symbols, Wild substitutions and the ultimate SuperStaxx™ feature.
My first impression
I always look forward to the new NetEnt slots, simply because I know by now an original design is what to expect just as one or two original slot features. And indeed I get what I expected, an original retro style design and another smashing excellent slot feature as never seen before in any online slot. I really enjoy watching the above slot preview which can also be found on NetEnt’s official YouTube channel. The first thing I see is that the entire game is shown from a different angle as we are used to from a video slot. A nice touch if you ask me, because it really gives this video slot a different look, perfectly combined with bright neon colours, 3D symbols and again an innovative slot feature. Although futuristic at some points, the game is taking you back to the 80’s with a funky synthesizer soundtrack on the background. While graffiti has been common for millennia, modern graffiti culture is generally thought to have emerged in New York in the 70’s, together with hip hop music. This way of communicating has been part of the 80’s too, the reason why NetEnt’s talented software developers added some in the logo and symbols. And if not special enough yet, you can expect an extra symbol on every reel as the developers decided to use the 4×5 layout as seen before in the Space Wars™ video slot.
Free Spins feature
When three or more Scatters can be found on the reels the Free Spins feature will be activated. As seen in the Neon Staxx™ slot preview above four Scatters will be responsible for 15 Free Spins, but before Free Spins start a Super Stacked symbol will be randomly chosen. This particular symbol will have a big role to play during Free Spins and will bring you extra high winnings.
As retro as the entire video slot, the Wild is bringing extra excitement to the reels substituting for any other symbol except Scatters. The Wild will probably play the same role as ever, so rather I concentrate on telling you more about the SuperStaxx™ feature, another very creative slot feature of which I’m sure players will enjoy.
Randomly activated, a SuperStaxx™ can appear anywhere on the reels and at any moment. If the SuperStaxx™ feature is activated the entire reel is stacked with just one symbol. This feature can become even more interesting when several reels show a SuperStaxx™ and if very lucky you all symbols will become the same because of the SuperStaxx™ feature. Well done NetEnt, you again show why you are the leading software developer in iGaming.
Neon Staxx™ Touch®
Even though we have to wait for another while before the Neon Staxx™ slot is launched, I’m sure this new NetEnt slot is worth waiting for. This new NetEnt video slot is launched on 24th June, 2015, the same date also Neon Staxx™ Touch® will find its way into the mobile casinos. Both games will offer the exact same gameplay, design and slot features, the reason to look forward to both games.
