NetEnt’s Strolling Staxx: Cubic Fruits™ slot planned for January 2018
While the NetEnt Casinos are filled with fruity-themed video slots, I haven’t seen any cubed fruits yet. There’s a first time for everything the NetEnt developers must have thought when creating the Strolling Staxx: Cubic Fruits™ slot which will find its way to the NetEnt Casinos in January 2019. While the Strolling Staxx™ preview video on NetEnt’s YouTube shows colourful design, I’m sure we slot lovers are more interested in the slot features involved like Wild substitutions, colossal symbols, Bonus Bet with Extra Chance and Strolling Staxx Re-Spins.
Stacks strolling down the reels
Even without seeing the preview video, it’s not hard to figure out that we’re dealing with cubed fruits and stack of symbols strolling around. That was my idea by seeing just the name of the game, but as soon as the first spin is shown in the above YouTube video., you’ll see I was right.
As mentioned before, it’s not hard to figure out when you know NetEnt and all previous games designed by the supplier while you have a database planted in your brain remembering every single slot feature invented. That’s how one plus one is two, besides it’s not the first Staxx™ game created by NetEnt as all slot fans also have access to Butterfly Stax™ and Neon Staxx™ as well. Slightly different in name, but still all about stacks of symbols is the fruity-themed Double Stacks™.
If we’re connection this new NetEnt slot game to a category, it would definitely belong to the category fruit slots which also includes Berryburst™ and Berryburst Max™, Fruit Case™, Fruit Shop™, Fruit Spin™, Reel Rush™, Stickers™, while Double Stacks™, and Swipe and Roll™ involve fruit symbols combined with traditional slot symbols.
Strolling Staxx: Cubic Fruits™ slot features
While I don’t see any intense innovations in the Strolling Staxx: Cubic Fruits™ slot, players can look forward to a great combination of video slot features, providing a lot of action on the reels. I do see an Extra Chance feature that I didn’t see before and if I did, not in this form. I also see Colossal symbols, a Bonus Bet, and Re-spins activated together with walking stacks of symbols although in this game they’re called Strolling Staxx Re-spins.
You’ll be able to activate the Bonus Bet or not. I don’t manage to find out what the advantage of the Bonus Bet is, but I’m sure NetEnt added one to make this special bet more attractive. I also see one symbol in the left corner which is adding to a great gameplay and I think the symbol on the sign has something to do with the Colossal symbols and the Strolling Staxx Re-spins.
I figured out that Strolling Staxx Re-spins are activated as soon as at least one stack of the same symbols appear on the reels. It’s then that a Re-spin is activated and the stack starts strolling to the left. I guess the Wild symbols is doing what it always does, substituting for all symbols and this leaves me to explain the Colossal symbol which can appear on the reels as a 2×2 symbols or 3×3 symbols. If they do, the Strolling Staxx Re-spins feature is activated. They also seem to appear after the Extra Chance feature shows up, leaving behind some extra symbols of the same type and a chance to activate a Strolling Staxx Re-spin again.
We’ve seen walking stacks of symbols in the Jack of the Beanstalk™ video while Spiñata Grande™ is famous for its Colossal symbols. Take the best slot features of these two NetEnt slots and you already have a great slot to enjoy. Add to that Wild symbols and a Bonus Bet and I don’t see any reason not to give the Strolling Staxx: Cubic Fruits™ slot a try as soon as the game is available in the NetEnt Casinos from the 24th of January. From that moment on you’ll be able to plunge in and refresh your world with the heaps of fresh delights that await you in Strolling Staxx: Cubic Fruits™.
