Butterfly Staxx 2 is fresh from the NetEnt libraries and even though it is a sequel, it is bound to please players all round. You are going to be treated to some interesting features alongside the beautiful graphics, so we hope you are ready for more fluttery fun.
Butterfly Staxx 2 is a 5-reel, 40 fixed pay line slot offering an RTP of 96.35% for players. It is set inside the balcony of a tower, overlooking the mountains and forest below. The reels are ensconced in a golden frame and surrounded by beautiful flowers swaying in the breeze. Packed with symbols ranging from flowers, letters and butterflies, there is a lot to take in as the game begins to play. Higher paying symbols are the butterfly, pink flower, purple flower and blue flower. Lower paying symbols are the A, K, Q and J in varying shades of green. In the background there is an almost ethereal tune playing, making the game feel very relaxed.
Bet Amounts – Betting on Butterfly Staxx 2 begins at 25p per spin and can be raised up to the maximum of £1,250 per spin! To change your bet up or down you can amend the bet level or the coin value. These are found on either side of the spin button and can be altered using the plus and minus symbols found on each section. Once you have amended your bet to suit your needs, just hit spin to resume your game.
Wild Symbol – A pink lotus flower with the word wild in front of it is your wild symbol in Butterfly Staxx 2. It will substitute for all other symbols in the game except for the scatter and is available in the base game and the respin feature.
Scatter Symbol – The scatter symbol on Butterfly Staxx 2 is a set of pink roses that have the word scatter in front of them. The rose scatter symbol will only land on reels 1, 3 and 5. Landing three or more scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 will trigger the bonus feature for you.
Butterfly Respin Feature – Every time you land a full stack of butterflies on any reel then this feature triggers and it is certainly going to boost your win potential. That stack of butterflies will now fly to the far left of the reels and settle there whilst the rest of the reels respin. If you land any butterflies on the respin, they will fly over to join the others from the initial spin and another respin occurs. This continues until no new butterflies’ land on a respin, or when you have filled the reels with butterflies. Once the round is over the butterflies’ act as wild symbols and your wins are calculated.
There is a twist, because once you have created a stack of butterflies on reels 1 and 2 through the respin feature, a second set of reels will appear. This extra set of reels will also have reels 1 and 2 covered in butterfly symbols. It means that for every time you trigger a respin, both sets of reels will spin and award wins simultaneously.
But it doesn’t stop there, cover reels 1, 2 and 3 on reel set 1 with butterfly stacks and you are awarded a third reel set. This will run in the same way as the previous two until no new butterfly symbols have landed on a respin! The max amount of reel sets you can land is three, but we think you will see that three is more than enough to garner some great results!
Bonus Spins Feature – Having landed three or more of the rose scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5, you will enter one of the two bonus features. You will be asked to choose from one of the two bonus games available:
- Butterfly Bonus Spins – this bonus game works in a similar way to the respins feature. But instead of symbols you have active or dormant cocoons. On entering the round you will see the whole set of reels have been replaced with cocoon symbols, active ones will be glowing and inactive ones will be dull. On each spin all active cocoons will immediately transform into butterflies which will then fly to the far left of the reels and remain there until the round is over. At the end of the round the accumulated butterflies will award a bonus prize on top of any wins landed during the round!
- Butterfly Bonus Frenzy – here you will be asked to play a picking game. Work through the varying stages offered, picking butterflies along the way. You begin the first stage with x10 picks, if you hit a butterfly that says stage upgrade you will be awarded an extra x10 picks and all the prize multipliers will be increased in size. This applies for all 5 stages so there is potentially x50 picks up for grabs throughout the whole round.
Neither of the rounds can be retriggered from within, but thanks to the interesting way they have been created there really is no need for a retrigger.
Butterfly Staxx 2 is a cute, girly slot that everyone will enjoy thanks to the features in play. When you combine the gorgeous design, relaxing music and of course those features, you are sure to enjoy every second spent spinning these reels. Let’s not forget the wins, because with the pick me feature in the bonus you are looking at bagging win multipliers that increase in size as you go up each stage! The bonus spins feature is full of potential profit thanks to the removal of the main symbols and replacing them with just an active or dormant cocoon instead.
Overall, if you like feature packed games then you will love Butterfly Staxx 2. But if you prefer a game that offers more by way of main game wins, then this may be a bit of a slow burner for you. Although there are some good main game wins to be had here, they are few and far between, meaning long periods of waiting for wins to land in the base game. However, the butterfly respin feature triggers often enough to allow us to forgive the wait.
