It might be a fruit-style theme, but the design is anything but typical. You will find that all those fruits and Royals appear cube-shaped on the reels, and they’re quite cute to look at. Everything takes the cube shape actually, even the trees you see in the background. NetEnt proves here that they can make even a fruit-style slot look great.
NetEnt is a name that is easily recognized by any player of online slot machines. They’re only active in this side of the industry, and they’re one of the top contenders here. With hundreds of great games in their collection, they focus mostly on video slots, but they also have live dealer tables and other casino games for their operators. You can play most of their games on mobile as well, not just desktops.
How To Play It
Selecting a bet for your next round will require that you pick the number of coins which can be used per line, as well as the coin value. You need 10 coins for starters, to cover the game’s 10 lines. You then pick a level for the bet, between 1 and 10, which can boost the wager to 100 coins. As the coin denomination has a value of $0.01 to $2, the total range possible is $0.10 to $200.
Activating the Bonus Bet will add an extra 5 coins for each level, so then the range becomes $0.15 to $300.
Not quite a typical slot machine, Strolling Staxx puts a big emphasis on Re-Spins and giant symbols, but you will learn more about those below. Your job is just to click on Spin, the rest you can learn as you go along (or from our review).
One easy feature, which the game delivers, is the W logo, or the wild. It’s a substitute, and it’s also a symbol which may form its own wins, one of two capable of paying 500x the line bet for each combo it creates directly. The wilds are available both stacked and as Colossal-sized symbols, on all reels.
Colossal symbols are larger, occupying 2×3 or 3×3 positions, so either 2 or 3 full reels. You can get them on all reels, at any point.
If you find yourself with one or more reels which are fully covered by matching symbols, you can trigger the Re-Spins that way. The stacked symbols and any connected matching symbols will start moving towards the left side, one position for each re-spin. The Re-Spins continue for as long as there are stacked symbols on the reels, so if new ones appear, the feature goes on.
Using the bonus bet makes the game considerably more expensive (by 50%), but it also gives you access to the Extra Chance. You can get up to 3×3 Colossal symbols as overlays, and you trigger the Extra Chance by getting the Re-Spins to start.
With rewards of 500x the stake mentioned, the game is capable of offering rewards as high as $100,000, each spin. The level of those rewards isn’t considered very high, a problem that we’ve often encountered in NetEnt games, but they likely know better what kind of experience their players expect.
It’s not a high volatility slot, so expect to get payouts often from it. As far as the RTP goes, it’s mentioned at 96.24%, which is a good figure and the right level for a new slot these days.
Strolling Staxx is fun, has unique features and a good RTP, but it’s also a slot machine which pays only 500x the stake, at most.
