Strolling Staxx is the third slot that NetEnt is announcing for its Staxx series, and in this particular case they’ve went for a fruit theme that seems to work quite well for them. They’re not doing anything unique or high end with these games, but the way they’re crafting their designs makes them stand out even in crowded fields.
The game layout will be standard in Strolling Staxx, having 5 by 3 reels in play each round. There are 10 fixed paylines for you to place wagers on, and the rewards you get will take that into account. Feature wise, you can get wild symbols, re-spins, bonus bets with extra chances and colossal symbols.
Betting and Prizes
Any bets you plan on placing in Strolling Staxx will have to take into account the Bonus Bet option. You seem to have the regular wager on one side, for which you can select the level of the bet and the value of the coins, and the Bonus Bet option on the other, which adds another 50% to the amount already picked. You can reach level 10 in these NetEnt games, with just as many coins for each line. The slot should be easily accessible through its smallest wagers, but it will also give you the possibility to spend more.
The top rewards appear to be below average, and based on what we know so far, it will probably pay somewhere around 400x the stake. It’s a reward that’s on the small side, but the various features involved should help get you paid often.
I’d also expect the RTP to be pretty good, as it is in the majority of the games released by NetEnt, even when they have lower volatility and payout potential.
Strolling Staxx Slot Features
Wild symbols do appear on the reels of Strolling Staxx, and they will become useful if they’re present next to some regular symbols in view. They combine with those symbols, to get you paid.
Special symbols, indicated in the bottom left corner on a wooden panel, can appear as colossal symbols on the reels, and that way they can end up covering full reels. Their potential to help you is only improved by the re-spins feature which follows, where these symbols truly earn their name of Strolling Staxx (stacks of symbols moving one position to the left side each round, until they reach the 1st reel and they form combinations for you). Any new symbols of that type will be added to the existing stacks.
You can boost your chances in this game by making use of their Bonus Bet, which will give you an extra chance.
Theme & Design
The graphics are quite special in Strolling Staxx, but that’s not something that’s unusual for a slot that’s released by NetEnt. They might’ve used the usual fruit theme for this game, but they did it in a way that stood out. The fruit icons are cube-shaped in this case, and the Royal logos are not too far behind. You have watermelons, strawberries, plums, cherries, lemons and all the usual Royals, along with a W logo for the wild.
The graphics keep their cube-shaped design even in the background, when you look at the trees and clouds which appear there. It’s a modern design, but that’s only a plus for it.
Strolling Staxx should be an interesting game for players that enjoyed the other slots from the series, including Neon Staxx and Butterfly Staxx. It’s a good design and it has interesting features.
