Following on from the hugely successful Butterfly Staxx title, NetEnt have provided players with an updated version and have brought out the Butterfly Staxx 2 slot game.
Naturally, butterflies have always had the ability to provide people with a great mood because of the beauty that can be associated with them and the developers have managed to implement those emotions with this slot game.
Our Butterfly Staxx 2 casino slot game review was certainly more enjoyable because of the presence made by the wonderful flying creatures and we are sure bettors will feel as relaxed as possible when giving this particular slot game a go!
Butterfly Staxx 2 is played across a five-reel grid that has four rows. Keeping things relatively simple, players are able to form wins across 40 different paylines and are able to place bets from as small as €0.25 per turn. However, those that like to place wagers of a high value are able to fulfil that desire as they can place wagers as high as €1,250 per spin!
The game features the traditional ‘Autoplay’ and ‘Max Bet’ buttons, thus allowing for players to customisable some of their gameplay experience to their needs. The ‘Autoplay’ function will allow for players to see the reels spin for a set period of time, whereas those that want to place the highest bet possible can do so with the click of a button.
With butterflies the obvious theme of the game, it is no surprise that we found a number of symbols on the paytable that can be associated with the magical insects during our Butterfly Staxx 2 game review. The lowest-value icons available – and perhaps disappointingly unfitting with the theme – are the playing cards. However, there are then a number of flowers that have various different colours available as well as the golden butterfly.
The game’s Wild is the pink flower, whilst the Scatter is represented by a lotus.
NetEnt have provided players with plenty of bonus features in this game, with the Re-Spins feature one of the main ones. This is triggered when a stack of the golden butterflies cover a reel. They will fly to the left-most reel and provide the player with the re-spin. If another one appears on the reel during the feature, they will then continue to move left and provide more re-spins until they disappear.
The pink flower Wild has the ability to provide players the chance to increase their winnings as they can substitute other icons on the paytable. The Scatter is not transformable, though, but it does possess the power to trigger a bonus round within the game.
If it appears on reels 1, 3 and 5, then players will have the choice to pick from either the ‘Butterfly Spins’ or the ‘Butterfly Frenzy’ games.
The ‘Butterfly Spins’ bonus game will see the grid be separated into three different areas that all become active and will provide players to land on either dormant or active cocoons. If an active one is landed upon, then it will hatch and evolve into a golden butterfly and provide the Re-Spin feature. These will then remain in place for the duration of the feature.
The ‘Butterfly Frenzy’ game is a simpler ‘pick’em’ style game where players choose which flying butterflies they want to pick. There are five stages in which rewards can be won but the game is extremely quick, thus making it difficult to obtain a number of rewards at times.
