Strolling Staxx: Cubic Fruits
Enter the fantasy world of Strolling Staxx where all things are cube shaped. Netent has gone for a wicked slot design with a fruity theme, colossal symbol blocs, respins and bonus bets. This fruity slot could turn your next gaming session into a fruitful affair.
Strolling Staxx is a low to medium variance game with an RTP of 95.98%. Activating the bonus bet will reduce it 95.95%. Bet sizes are a modest 0.10 to 20 coins for regular play and 0.15 to 30 coins with bonus bets. The win potential is as expected rather low with 500 times your stake for a full screen of melon symbols. However, that can grow higher in a complete respins sequence. The game is in HTML5 format, making it available for play on any desktop, mobile and tablet.
A fantasy nature scene is the backdrop to a transparent game window with the symbols on the reels falling into the river underneath. As expected, everything is in cube form, starting from the pay symbols to leaves on the trees in the background. A panel in the bottom left corner indicates which symbol can appear as a stacked symbol in the following spin. The soundtrack has been kept rather simple with splashing noises when the symbols fall into the river as well as the usual win count sounds.
Nine regular pay symbols and one wild symbol populate the reels. There are the J to As suits as well as cubic plums, cherries, lemons and strawberries. The top symbols are the melon and the wild symbol. Both are paying 50 times your bet for a five of a kind. There are no scatters on this game as the feature is activated by a full stack of symbols.
The Strolling Staxx Slot Features
All pay symbols on Strolling Staxx can appear on any spin in the base game or respin feature as a single symbol or as 2×2 and 3×3 colossal symbols. They can land in full or partial view on a spin and split up into two to nine single symbols once the reels have stopped.
The Staxx sign on the left of the game window indicates which pay symbol can land stacked on the following spin. Hitting then a full stack of the selected symbol will trigger the respins feature. All matching stacked and adjacent symbols move now one reel to the left on each respin until all stacks disappear to the left of the game window. The respins can be retriggered when more stacks of the same symbol land on a respin. Wins are evaluated after every respin and paid cumulatively at the end of the feature.
For Netent connoisseurs this is a first on a Netent game. The Bonus Bet will add 50% to the standard cost for a spin and will help to enhance the respin feature. It will award an extra chance to have a 3×3 symbol bloc land on the reels after the respin feature has been triggered, providing more potential to score big wins. Symbol blocs rain down on the reels and can land in full or partial view.
Cubic party or not? No party really. The slot might look fun with the cubic theme and is even entertaining to play, but having a top win of just 500 times the bet removes that suspense of hitting a monster win during our slotting sessions. It will though be good enough to score medium wins in the 50 to 100 x range.
