NetEnt are convincingly continuing a well-established tradition of the Staxx series with yet a third release. The Strolling Staxx™ slot title follows suit to the previous two 5-reel 4-row 40 payline grids of Neon Staxx™ and Butterfly Staxx™ slots. With a 5×3 grid to freshen things up, and a 10-fixed payline to make it worth your while, Strolling Staxx™ arguably allows players to make the most of the series.
Its design is fully in the spirit of stacking symbols, as they are cubic shaped and practically waiting for their chance to trigger the top win. With a nature landscape serving as a backdrop, and a river flowing beneath the grid, this slot is a feast for all senses. For those who lack some basic orientation skills, there is additionally a wooden panel, like a country-side sign, informing players of the hot symbol for the given spin.
Before we move on to the various wins players can land thanks to the slot’s features, it is important that they are equally familiar with the symbols comprising them. Thus, the basic card suits J, Q, K and A are the lower valued symbols, appearing somewhat like a cubic carving of thick wood paneling. As for the higher valued ones, fruits are used to further emphasize the natural theme of the title. Cubic-shaped cherries, lemon, strawberry and watermelon make up the four fruit symbols. The fifth symbol is a golden W which stands for the Wild of the game, typically substituting regular symbols and having the same payout potential as the top paying symbol – the watermelon. Since the game doesn’t feature a bonus free spins round, we can safely assume that there is no Scatter symbol.
While each of these has their own payout potential, the special feature’s is still leading in comparison. This is the Strolling Staxx™’s Re-spin feature, which is activated whenever the chosen symbol indicated on the wooden sign appears stacked on at least one of the reels on the grid. This symbol has the power to appear as a full or partially visible Colossal symbol – 2×3 or 3×3 – and thus form a connected structure of stacks on the reels. With each re-spin, the stacked symbols move one position to the left, and they only stop when the last of them has been pushed to the left with the help of the river flow. Until then, this chosen symbol remains as it is, and only the free reels spin to create even more winning combinations.
The Bonus Bet button is also noteworthy when it comes to maximizing your win potential at Strolling Staxx™. It increases the set bet size by a whole 50%, and features the Extra Chance – that the Colossal symbols will be 3×3, regardless whether they land fully or partially.
This title may seem rather contrasting in gameplay intricacy when compared with another recent NetEnt slot announcement, Turn Your Fortune. Nevertheless, with crisp and fresh graphics, pleasant audio and visual effects and smooth and seamless gameplay, Strolling Staxx™ is a top slot players’ destination.
Strolling Staxx™ video slot was released by Netent on the 24th of January 2019, making it the first video slot release of the year!
