Butterflies have always appeared to have a rather unique ability for much of the population as they are widely considered to be one of the most beautiful insects to exist. Many across the world will hate insects, however these magical creatures just manage to provide people with uplifting moods and a sense of happiness.
NetEnt will have known that when they created their original Butterfly Staxx instalment. However, the amount of success they had with that particular title has meant that they had a reason to provide players with a second edition of the game, thus providing players with the Butterfly Staxx 2 slot game.
The slot game is played on a grid that consists of five reels that has four rows with 40 fixed paylines available. Our Butterfly Staxx 2 game review found that betting amounts could be placed across a wide range, with $0.25 available for those that like to place small wagers, whereas the maximum bet is a cool $1,250 per spin!
In addition to the bets being placed being adjustable, there are also a number of other gameplay options that are available for players to customize. There is a ‘Autoplay’ and ‘Max Bet’ button available for those that look for a seamless experience. Players can test these features out in the Butterfly Staxx 2 Free Play version before they take on the reels for real money!
With butterflies the main theme of the game, it is not surprising that many of the icons can be associated with the magical insects. Perhaps disappointingly, there are still playing card symbols involved – which act as the low-value icons – however the are three different colored flowers as well as the golden butterfly. Match five of the butterfly and players will receive a reward of 50x their bet!
The game features a Wild and a Scatter icon as well, with both providing some great bonus features in this game.
One of the many Butterfly Staxx 2 bonus features to be available in this slot game is the Re-Spins feature. This is activated when a stack of golden butterflies appear on the reels. The insects will float across to the left-most reel and will provide players with re-spins. This process will continue if more golden butterflies appear on the reels.
The Butterfly Staxx 2 slot game Wild is the pink flower and this has the ability to substitute other symbols on the paytable to help form winning combinations. The Scatter, though, is the Lotus and this has the ability to trigger one of two bonus games.
When three of these Lotuses appear on the reels – reel 1, 3 and 5 – in one spin, players will be able to choose between the ‘Butterfly Spins’ and the ‘Butterfly Frenzy’ bonus games.
The ‘Butterfly Spins’ game will see the grid split into three active areas that will contain dormant and active cocoons. If an active one is landed on, then it will hatch and provide bettors with a golden butterfly. This will trigger the Re-Spins feature and remain active whilst the feature game is being played.
The ‘Butterfly Frenzy’ game is a pick’em style game in which players are tasked with trying to click on the butterflies that float across the screen. There are five different stages to this game in which players will be able to win rewards. However, they will need to be quick as the butterflies are extremely quick and do not hang around!
RTP (return to player)
With a return to player (RTP) rate of 96.35% and a level of low volatility, Butterfly Staxx 2 is a game that can provide players with frequent rewards. Thus, it should be one for everyone to play, especially those that loved the original Butterfly Staxx slot game!
