Sequel To Butterfly Staxx To Launch In August 2019


7 Jul 2019

Butterfly Staxx was launched back in June 2017, just two years later a sequel is set to hit your favourite online casino, Butterfly Staxx 2 ™!

Blooming flowers and sparkling butterflies was the theme for the original and it’s the same for the sequel it would seem after watching the trailer from NetEnt.

Like it’s predecessor, Butterfly Staxx 2 ™ is a low volatility game and probably holds more appeal to the recreational player than the high rollers.

Playing Butterfly Staxx 2 ™

With the game not due for launch until August 2019, we haven’t yet played the game so this short review is based on what can be seen in the official trailer from NetEnt.

The game itself boasts five reels across four rows and a total of 40 paylines. Winning combinations are paid when you match between two and five symbols on the payline.

When released, the game will be available to play on all devices (mobile, laptop and desktop) and the reported RTP is 96.35%.

The aesthetics don’t appear to differ too much from the original and includes things like the magical flower vines that blossom when a respin is triggered. The only difference appears to be that play area is set in what looks to be a window frame of a castle.

Bonus Features Of Butterfly Staxx 2 ™

No NetEnt slot is complete without a selection of bonus features and this title doesn’t appear to fall short.

Respin Feature

When you land a full stack of butterfly symbols on the base game, on any real, you will trigger the respin feature.

All of the butterfly symbols are moved to their furthest point to the left and one respin is given. If more butterflies land on the respin, they too move to the left until no more are spun onto the reels.

There is a twist to this feature though – should you get two full reels of butterflies, a new game window will open with the first reel filled with butterflies. If you fill three reels, yet another game window will open!

To continue the respins, just one butterfly symbol is needed on any game window.

Bonus Feature Selector

If you can land three scatter symbols then you get to make a choice from two different bonuses. These are:

Butterly Spins: Opt for this and you will be awarded five free spins. During these spins there will only be dormant and active cocoons on the reels. These cannot be retriggered.

All three reels sets are used for this bonus and any active cocoon that lands will become a butterfly. This means it will move to the leftmost reel.

Butterfly Frenzy Pick And Click: Pick this option and you play a game where the screen is filled with butterflies. Pick 10 of them to reveal coins or a stage upgrade. There are five stages and each sees an increase in the coin win value.

We’ll have to play the game ourselves to give a real verdict. At launch Butterfly Staxx 2 ™ will be available at many popular online casinos, many of which we have provided online casino reviews for.
