Neon Staxx Slot
Despite the funky name, Neon Staxx is pretty self-explanatory. All of the symbols are outlined in neon lighting, and some of them come in stacks, or staxx. This great-looking online slot is a June 2015 release from NetEnt. It comes with 5 reels, 40 pay lines and a super-cheesy 80s-synth soundtrack.
The main notion behind this game is the SuperStaxx feature. This means that during a spin, any one of the symbols on any of the reels can become stacked, which means it takes over the entire reel. Occassionally, this happens on more than one reel (and with the same symbol) and, if the rest of the reels land right for you, then you could potentially trigger some massive wins. The symbols are four ‘predator’ symbols (lion, bear, eagle and snake) and playing card values jack to ace.
How much you bet per spin is entirely up to you. You can select your coin value from 0.01 to 0.50, and your bet level from between one and ten. There are forty possible pay lines, and each payline is in play at all times. Your final bet is always your coin value multiplied by your bet level, multiplied by twenty. When you’re happy with your wager, hit the big circular button in the centre of the screen to get the neon-reels spinning.
The lowest payout on offer in Neon Staxx is 4x your bet-per-line for three jacks or queens. Top of the staxx is the lion – land five of the big-toothed beastie and you’ll find 100x your line bet in your slots bankroll.
Golden wild symbols add a little more excitement to this game. They substitute for any other symbol aside from the scatter symbol and they too can become stacked.
A green and pink symbol is the scatter symbol and awards you free games if you land enough of them anywhere. Three scatters wins you ten free spins, four scatters wins you fifteen and five wins you twenty. During free spins only the predator or wild symbols become stacked, which gives you more chance of larger cash payouts.
NetEnt does all-singing and all-dancing ‘3D’ slots very well, but it also does simpler slots brilliantly. Despite a very basic premise, Neon Staxx is a very exciting slot and will remind you a lot of Starburst. The thrills come as you watch the reels spin, and one of them at least becomes stacked on every spin. It’s then just a case of keeping your fingers crossed that the rest of the reels will award you happy landings!
