Did you know, that, according to Wikipedia “the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state”?
Well, I don’t know about that, but what I do know is that there’s a new Butterfly game in town and it’s called the Butterfly Staxx 2 slot from those Swedish lads and lasses over at NetEnt.
Being Swedish, it’s all chilled styling and ambient music but don’t let the cool design fool you as this flapping slot has a very nice re-spins feature and a pair of tidy bonuses. If your luck is in, you may unlock not just 1, but 3 sets of reels. Crazy times, wombat fans.
If you’re as sharp as I know you are, you’ll have figured out that this eye-catching slot is the follow up to the smash hit Butterfly Staxx. Let’s see if this little number is as good as it looks. Will this game make it onto my list of favourites or is it a bit of a flap? Let’s hit the reels and find out my friends, wombat style.
Look and Feel
We’re in a balmy summer scene for this one, with a stone window surrounded by flowering blooms and a pleasant view. Yes, my friends, this is like your average night in Wombat Towers, just with more scented candles.
The reels are backed in blue and sit within a swanky golden frame. The game’s icons are a host of bright flowers and, most importantly, a swarm of beautiful butterflies. Let’s hope one of those tiny wing flaps results in a huge win for you.
The bottom line is, if you want a game with a soothing vibe, this slot exudes a feel good and laid back atmosphere. All you need to do now is capture some wins.
Butterfly Staxx 2 Slot Game Play
This slice of natural bliss takes place over 5 reels, 4 rows and 40 pay-lines. You will need to match between 3 and 5 icons on a reel to generate a win.
The highest standard icon is the yellow butterfly at the centre of the game. Lure 5 of these delicate insects onto an active pay-line and you will wing a double your wager boost. And we all love the scent of flowers, which is just as well as the other high-value icons are a trio of colourful blooms.
The game’s Wild is the Lotus flower and this handy symbol subs for all icons, except for the Scatter. A pair of pink roses is the Scatter: this is the key to the bonus extras.
Finally, the basic lower value icons are the Ace through Jack of the card deck in a dark leafy green.
Besides the spa atmosphere, this game has an great re-spins feature which is triggered by landing a reel of stacked butterflies. Butterflies are a sociable lot, like wombats, so when they land they always move to the far left position on the row and move towards each other. If Lady Luck likes your style, you’ll keep landing those insects and keeping the re-spins flowing.
We all love to boost our winning chances and if you manage to land two fully stacked reels of butterflies on reels 1 and 2 you unlock a cracking second playing area. Better still, land 3 stacked butterfly reels and go one better, triggering a third playing area. Now you’ll be in a flap!
And if you want more still, then get your hairy paws on a further pair of bonus features. The route to the extras is a matter of landing a trio of Scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5. And then you choose between a pair of bonus games.
In the Butterfly Spins feature, those bonkers 3 playing areas are active again. And there’s a new icon at play; a butterfly cocoon, the butterfly’s birth pod. The cocoons, when they land, may be dormant and do nothing. Or the cocoons come alive and lucratively morph into butterflies, flying to the leftmost reels, just like they do in the re-spins game.
There’s also a feature called the Butterfly Frenzy- it’s basically a screen full of the insects. Through five stages, you will have 10 picks to select butterflies and reveal the prizes they are hiding.
Butterfly Staxx 2 slot is a nice follow up to the original, popular slot. This time around this game has the trio of lucrative play areas, as well as the stacking re-spins feature. And the Butterfly Frenzy is the icing on the cake. NetEnt has once again rolled out the red carpet in this glossy and chilled out slot with a smorgasbord of bonuses.
