Butterfly Staxx 2 is part of the NetEnt’s Staxx series due to release on August 22. All the Staxx slots have superb graphics and volatility ranging from low to medium. Players with small bankrolls will like this game which is low in volatility.
While you are spinning the reels you will be listening to the calming soundtrack and feeling like in a world from another dimension.
Butterfly Staxx 2 consists of a 5-reeled grid, 4 rows high with active 40 pay-lines. You can play it on mobile and desktop devices with wagers from 0.25p to as much as £1 250 per spin. The whole game focuses on the butterfly symbol which is the best paying one as well. Landing a full stack of butterflies on the grid in a spin triggers the Re-spins feature. Then, all butterfly symbols will move to the leftmost place on the row they have landed and you will get a re-spin. The re-spin mode will end the moment you stop landing butterflies.
Another feature with massive potential is the unlocking of extra reel grids. This happens when you cover the entire 2 leftmost reels with butterflies. This will grant you an additional reel set taking part in the game. Succeeding to cover the whole 3 leftmost reels with butterflies only, unlocks a 3rd reel set for you. And this is not all – your play will be further enhanced with an x2 or x3 multiplier. The latter depends on the number of reels with butterfly symbols you got.
The Butterfly Spins and the Butterfly Frenzy are the 2 bonus rounds available in the game. You can trigger them with 3 or more scatters on certain positions. The Butterfly Spins can give you the highest reward of 240 times your stake. When playing with the largest bet allowed £1 250 – this makes a £300 000 win! The Butterfly Frenzy has a potential of 150 times your bet profit. This makes a £187 500 win by playing with the highest stake.
The atmosphere and visual feel of the game are very peaceful like entering an enchanted world. The design is not very different from the first game graphics with the same name from the series. Here, you will also relish in the same magical rose vines on both sides of the game grid. These will open up during the re-spin feature. The light-pink rose vines grow on stone walls in this version. Here there is also a mountain range seen from a far distance.
The roses around the grid may blossom fully during the different stages of the game. You may witness these magnificent moments. The butterflies are yellow. You will hear the standard reel sounds while you are playing. During all stages of the game, you will be listening to a tranquil music soundtrack. Butterfly Staxx 2 has low volatility and a standard RTP of 96.35%.
The symbols taking part in the game are the A, K, Q and J royal cards, which have lower values. Better paying are the thematic symbols. These are 3 different flowers and a glowing butterfly. Of course, the latter is the most profusely rewarding. Five such symbols on any of the 40 pay-lines return twice the amount of your stake. The lotus flower is the wild and it appears anywhere on the playing grid during the main game. As usual, it can replace all symbols except for the scatter. The latter is a bouquet of pink roses with the word itself. It lands only on reels 1, 3, and 5.
During the base game, you can trigger a few features where you will play on several reel sets at a time or get re-spins. When you land butterfly symbols that are fully stacked on a reel, you trigger the Re-Spins. All butterflies from the symbols fly to the leftmost position of the reel where there aren’t any other butterfly symbols. Remaining there as stacked symbols, the butterflies will wait for a re-spin. This feature may unlock another one.
If you cover the 2 leftmost reels with butterflies, you will have a second playing area unlocked. This way you can reach filling the whole 3 leftmost reels with butterfly symbols. As a result, you will get 3 reel areas to play on simultaneously. So, you will get 2 or 3 times more chances to make winning combinations by playing with 2 or 3 reel sets at a time.
If you get a scatter on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th reel at the same time per spin, you can choose one of the 2 Bonus Rounds. These are the Butterfly Spins or the Butterfly Frenzy. In the Butterfly Spins mode, you will have 5 free spins with only cocoon symbols on the grid. The cocoons can be dormant or active. You cannot re-trigger the free spins. The active cocoon symbols transform into butterflies. Then, they fly into the leftmost places on the same row they are on. You will be playing on 3 grid sets simultaneously. You will receive line payments on each winning spin. The maximal amount you can score in this feature is 240 times your bet.
The other available feature is the Butterfly Frenzy. You will have butterfly symbols to choose from to boost your wins. The mode has 5 different stages and you can make 10 picks. Here are the prizes you can win on each stage:
With coin rewards increasing from 0.4 to 5 times your stake in the 1st and 5th stage, you can add some good cash wins. The overall profit you can make from this whole Butterfly Frenzy round is 150 times your stake.
Butterfly Staxx 2 may look complex at first but it’s not. Its main focus is the butterfly symbols which shift when they appear in stacks. This version is very similar to the original one but here you have 3 grids on which you can play at the same time. Thus, your wins can be triple as much. Bigger win potential gives you the landing of more butterfly symbols.
The slot has a nice design and is suitable for casual and players with smaller bankrolls. The max win you can score in the game is 240 times your stake. The theme, graphics, and its low variance imply that the game is focused mainly on the female part of the audience.
