Symbols and Winning Combinations of Butterfly Staxx 2 Slot
Butterfly Staxx 2 is a return to a world filled with flowers and butterflies. This sequel from NetEnt builds on the success of the first while adding new features that are sure to delight.
The backdrop lives up to the quality fans of NetEnt titles have come to expect. It may not be full of mind-bending detail, but its beauty still draws the eye and you find yourself wanting to see beyond the reel grid to the depths of the forest.
The grid is set in front of a stone arch looking out over a forest and both sides of the arch have climbing pink roses which occasionally bloom to bathe the game area in soft pink light. The reels are encased by an ornate gold frame and are populated by ten symbols, eight regular, one wild, and one scatter. They are:
- Low worth = A, K, Q, J
- High Worth = Blue flower, Purple flower, Red flower, Golden butterfly
- Wild = Pink/Red Lotus flower with Wild text
- Scatter = Pink roses with scatter text
As a low/medium volatility slot, payouts are relatively lower but more frequent. When betting levels are set to the smallest amount, players can expect their lowest winnings to be five coins for three J’s, and the highest to be fifty coins for five butterflies.
The bonus features discussed below, give slot fans the opportunity to increase their winnings substantially.
Bonus Features of Butterfly Staxx 2 Slot
Butterfly Staxx 2 includes three bonus features, which is a relatively small number for a NetEnt title but all three are well implemented.
The first of the bonus features can trigger as soon as you begin spinning the reels. The respin feature is triggered when four butterflies appear in a stack. When activated, the roses at the sides bloom casting a soft pink light that sparkles into existence. Shortly after the light show, the stack of butterflies flutter over to the leftmost reel and remain there while the other reels respin. If more butterflies appear, they also fly to the left on the same row.
If reels 2 and 3 are filled with stacked butterflies, an additional two game grids are opened. The new screens start with a full stack on the first reel. Respins continue until no more butterflies appear or all sixty spaces are filled.
When three scatter symbols appear on reels 1, 3, and 5, you are given the option to play Butterfly Spins or Butterfly Frenzy.
Butterfly Spins starts with three active game screens. Only two symbols appear in this feature, dormant and active cocoons. Active cocoons turn into butterflies that flutter to the leftmost reel. Just like during the respin round, the reels keep spinning until all spaces are filled or no more butterflies appear.
During the Butterfly Frenzy feature, the player must choose, and click, on the butterflies flying around. Most butterflies will award you with a cash prize, but some will allow you to advance through the five stages of this feature. Each stage offers increasing rewards, so the faster you can find the ‘Next Stage’ butterfly, the better.
Butterfly Staxx 2 is a low/medium volatility slot so you will most likely be building on a series of smaller, more frequent payouts. The good news is, the bonus features offer the chance to increase your winnings considerably and they trigger on a fairly regular basis.
We recommend taking the free version of this slot for a few spins before trying to catch these butterflies.
