The line of fruit themed slot machines from Playson’s collection continues with a Lucky Staxx: 40 lines, which obviously delivers quite a few more active lines and potential winning combinations than the regular game using this type of theme.
You have the expected 40 active lines inside, using 5 by 4 reels at their basis. The game relies on simple features, which include a scatter and a stacked wild, with payouts getting to 1,000x the stake in the best case scenario, which would mean as much as $100,000 for this game. There isn’t much else to it, it’s a fairly simple slot machine.
Betting and Prizes
The wagers you get to place in this game will revolve around the entire collection of lines which you use, so you don’t get to play around with these options. You just pick the total amount that has to go into the wager, and the range for it will be $0.20 to $100. A bet of up to $2.50 may be placed on each line, and the paytable indicates how much each combo will pay at the current selected wager.
A very good payout will come from the scatter, up to 400x the stake paid out for just five symbols. The potential of the game is higher though, and if you fill the reels with red 7s and Wild Clovers you could get as much as $100,000 from those 40 lines ($2,500 per line, or 25x the stake).
Lucky Staxx 40 lines Slot Features
A fruit themed game is not the one to look to for advanced features and unique gameplay decisions. On the contrary, they’re trying to keep things simple, since the players looking at slots with fruit themes tend to like a simpler gameplay.
You do get some extras to help you along the way though, and one of the decisions that they’ve made is to use a lot of stacked symbols, even for the regular ones. That’s why it’s not as unlikely as you might think, to get a screen filled with matching symbols and to receive a decent payout out of this slot.
The same stacked symbol decision can be found in the case of the Wild Clover, though you get these only on the middle three columns. Stacked wilds may help any of the regular symbols create their winning combinations, and as they often appear multiple times on a reel, chances are that they can contribute to more than one combo as well. They are not of help with the scatter’s payouts though.
Speaking of the scatter, it’s featuring the image of a Gold Star, another classic choice, and it will have to appear anywhere from three to five times, if you want its rewards of 2x to 400x the stake. It’s one of the ways you can get paid really well in this game, and it seems like it’s more likely than getting a lot of stacked symbols on the reels at the same time.
Theme & Design
Lucky Staxx is going to feature stacks of symbols, it’s right there in the name, but what it doesn’t tell you is that it’s also a classic themed title. You are getting clovers, gold stars, red 7s or bells for the better symbols, with the rest showing off the expected fruits (cherries, plums, oranges, lemons, watermelon or grape).
It’s a decent looking release, even with the classic theme, and the heavy use of stacked symbols and wilds should help it pay relatively well.
