Neon Staxx Slots - NetEnt
ABOUT NEON STAXX SLOTS
Rolled on desktop and mobile in June 2015, Neon Staxx takes online gamers back to the 80’s, with retro design, neon lights and slanted reels the highlights of the Net Entertainment product. The game is played at five reels and fixed 40 paylines, while housing Free Spins round, Super Staxx feature and offering payouts up to 80,000 credits per spin.
Neon Staxx combines a futuristic look with retro style and we have to admit that we have been impressed by the visual appearance, although chances are not all casino gamers will enjoy the somewhat loud colours and game symbols such as lion, bear, eagle and snake, and especially those boring playing card icons.
HOW TO PLAY
The interesting thing here is that while the game is played at fixed 40 paylines, default wager is mere 20 coins per spin, while you have the option to increase bet level and wager up to 200 credits per single round. You will also enjoy the wide array of coin values, ranging from $0.01 to $0.50, as well as the presence of Auto Play, Max Bet and Quick Spin options.
As that is usually the case, winning combinations are formed when three or more identical symbols are found on a payline, starting from the leftmost reel. Wild symbol acts as a Joker seeing that it can replace any other game icon apart from Scatter, while also offering prizes on its own for at least three matching icons.
Super Staxx slot from Net Entertainment is not exactly packed with different perks and benefits, and it does not contain a second-screen bonus game, but the Free Spins round and Super Staxx feature should prove sufficient to improve your line wins.
The main bonus round is as simple as they get, given that the player is awarded 10, 15 and 20 free spins respectively when three, four and five Scatter symbols are found anywhere on the game screen.
Depicted as a pink pyramid in a green circle, Scatter icon does not award payouts on its own, but it triggers the main bonus round when at least three of these appear in any position.
The top payout you can win per single spin of the reels is 80,000 coins, or up to $40,000, and we have to admit that base line payouts are far from impressive. However, you need to bear in mind that you get a special discount on each spin, paying 20 coins for playing at 40 paylines. Wild also acts as the highest paying icon, awarding up to 2,000 credits per line.
NEON STAXX ON MOBILE
Neon Staxx launched on NetEnt’s premium Touch mobile platform on 24 June 2015, the same day when the online version was released, and one glance at the mobile slot will tell you that nothing was lost in the transition.
The retro game looks great and plays really well on tablet and smartphone, with Super Staxx feature ensuring that a randomly selected symbol can appear in stacks to further improve your chances of landing a top payout.
