I love video slots with a good background story like the NetEnt Rocks series including Guns N’ Roses Touch®, Jimi Hendrix Touch®, and Motörhead Touch®, but also video slots such as Aliens Touch®, Dracula Touch®, Frankenstein Touch®, South Park Touch®, and The Invisible Man Touch® but even slots with an interesting subjects like Secrets of Atlantis Touch®, Secrets of the Stones™, and Pacific Attack™ (Pearl Harbor).
Unfortunately, Butterfly Staxx Touch® doesn’t give me the opportunity to delve into a certain subject, but despite that, I think that the design does have a lot to offer and the same goes for the few interesting slot features added while an airy sound completes the relaxing slot experience.
Described by NetEnt as a low polygonal art style of game, I found myself a way to get into a subject anyway, wondering what this style is all about. I have to admit it didn’t ring a bell until Google showed me some examples. That’s when I started to recognise the low poly style which involves 3D computer graphics looking as if they have a low resolution due to the small number of polygons used for the 3D images. An interesting style I must say and I’m happy I learned something new after all.
Now I found out more about the low polygonal art style, I have a hard time to see this style back in the images used in Butterfly Staxx Touch®, although the letters used as symbols are definitely inspired by the interesting style. But who am I? I might even be blinded by the neon-coloured butterflies this game is driven by. The more of those appear on the reels, the bigger the light effect will be strengthened by the luminous flower tree in blossom.
I’m sure many will be enchanted by the colourful design Butterfly Staxx Touch® is bringing to the NetEnt Casinos, perfectly combined with some innovative slot features. NetEnt decided to keep things simple, bringing Wild substitutions, Re-Spins, and Butterfly Spins only, but don’t be discouraged by the simplicity of Butterfly Staxx Touch® as this aspect has been extremely successful with mobile slots like Starburst Touch® and Twin Spin Touch®.
Butterfly Staxx Touch® features
This mobile slot got an amazing 40 bet lines thanks to an extra row added to the standard three rows. This results in a 5×4 grid instead of a 5×3 grid while the game has been enriched with Wild substitutions, Re-Spins, and the exciting Butterfly Spins. I don’t think that slot fans these days are much impressed by a standard Wild substitution, but the opposite applies to the Re-spins and Butterfly Spins available in Butterfly Staxx Touch®.
But no full review without mentioning the Wild substitutions as they do play a prominent role in almost all NetEnt slots where they substitute for all other symbols. The same goes for this mobile slot, except that the Scatters aren’t included.
The few slot features responsible for some good action to the reels are the Re-spins and Butterfly Spins. These two slot features have a lot in common, especially when it comes to the many luminous butterflies available in Butterfly Staxx Touch®.
Re-spins will be activated whenever a stack of symbols is taking over an entire reel resulting in all butterflies flying to the most left reel raising the odds of a big win. The fun part starts when more butterflies appear on the reels joining the sticky butterflies on the utter left, getting ready for another Re-spin, just until no new butterflies are added.
Three or more Scatters on the reels will be responsible for the activation of the Butterfly Spins, the most spectacular mobile slot feature available. This feature has a lot in common with a standard Free Spins feature, except that during the first Butterfly Spin, all symbols become Cocoon symbols. Every spin will reveal one or more active cocoons turning into beautiful butterflies. These colourful creatures will have the same way to go as during the Re-spins which means they will end up on the most left spot available.
