2019 was the year that NetEnt launched Butterfly Staxx 2 Touch® at the mobile NetEnt Casinos. It was two years after the first version became available. It’s pretty obvious that these two mobile slots have a lot in common, but NetEnt really stepped up its game.
Butterfly Staxx 2 Touch® introduces some new innovations. You get an introduction to the amazing three play areas during slot features, as well as the Frenzy feature. Last, but certainly not least, the sequel to Butterfly Staxx Touch® offers higher betting options.
It’s not a completely new butterfly experience on the reels, though. We already enjoyed the enchanting swarm of luminous butterflies in Butterfly Staxx Touch®. However, it’s in this sequel that an even bigger swarm of butterflies rises while more video slot features are available.
What’s new in Butterfly Staxx 2 Touch®?
The original mobile slot offers a 5×4 layout with 40 fixed lines placed over the reels and the same goes for Butterfly Staxx 2 Touch®. In the first version, slot entertainment comes from the Wild, Re-spins, and the Butterfly Spins. Again no changes yet.
These slot features all survived the metamorphosis and for good reasons. They form a successful combination of slot features. Appreciated by many players for years already. So why would NetEnt ditch such a successful combination.
It seems a fresher valley adventure replaces the warm summer night, although equally peaceful! Surround yourself with by the most colourful flowers. And when the magical roses on the sides of the reels become luminous, it’s time for some good fun!
Of course, you’ll see a swarm of mystical butterflies back on the reels, again bringing you to an enchanted world. This time, however, you’ll be experiencing an entirely new slot experience. Butterfly Staxx 2 Touch® is the first of its kind thanks to the multiple play areas.
Is Butterfly Staxx 2 Touch® the better version?
A sequel to a film often brings disappointment. We keep hoping a sequel brings a better version than its predecessor, especially when it comes to NetEnt. We know that this popular software developer is able to create better gaming. And in my opinion, Butterfly Staxx 2 Touch® brings another piece of proof. Simply because this mobile slot is indeed offering an even better mobile slot experience.
While the Wild, Re-spins and the Butterfly Spins remain the same, the Frenzy feature has been added to this mix of slot features. A great addition but I think the biggest difference can be found in the Re-spins feature. The butterflies flying to the leftmost position on the reels aren’t bringing any new developments, but as soon as a second reel is filled up with butterflies, the biggest change will be revealed.
Butterfly Staxx 2 Touch® features
You now know what aspects remain the same, but what is it that makes Butterfly Staxx 2 Touch® a better version? If the base of the game is practically the same as it was, then what is going to convince you to try Butterfly Staxx 2 Touch®?
If you’re a high roller, I’m sure you’ll see something in the maximum bet of 1250.00, one higher than ever before! Not just a bit higher, but like a lot higher! But forget about this fact if you don’t have a fruitful money tree growing in your account. But no matter if a small player or a high roller, I’m sure you’ll appreciate the Re-spins feature’s new style which can result in three play areas instead of the usual one. The fact that these multiple play areas are available during Butterfly Spins makes things becoming better and better.
NetEnt’s Multiple Play Areas
The opportunity to activate multiple play areas during the Re-Spins and Butterfly Spins is making this mobile slot the first of its kind. We did see two play areas in the Planet of the Apes Touch®, but never before did we see a NetEnt slot with three play areas available. You can now unlock multiple play areas with just one single bet which will spin independently and simultaneously.
Re-spins will play an important role in the activation of the multiple areas as Re-spins activated by one reel filled up with butterflies. This will result in another spin in which new butterflies can appear that will fly to the leftmost reel and when this leads to another full reel of butterflies, a second screen will become available. A third play area will become reality when a third reel is fully covered by butterflies.
Butterfly Spins feature
The Butterfly Spins, activated by three Scatters, will bring you three play areas from the start of this recycled video slots feature. It’s then that you’ll find only cocoons on all five reels in all three play areas 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.
The Butterfly Frenzy feature is another innovation in Butterfly Staxx 2 Touch®, a standard pick-and-click game with an amazing five exciting levels. You take a pick from several Butterfly symbols. Some will award coin wins while other Butterfly symbols can take you to the next stage. Each stage awards 10 picks (+10) to the player which are added to remaining picks from the previous stage.
