Long-time players of NetEnt titles are teased with a new fiat and Bitcoin slots game for a while now. And this month, they finally released Butterfly Staxx 2, a sequel to their smash hit magical-themed slot of the same name. The new title is now available for play on NetEnt’s platform and partner casino operators.
Director of Games of NetEnt led the announcement to emphasize the main selling points of the new sequel: “Butterfly Staxx 2 is a true sequel to the highly successful Butterfly Staxx. It takes a familiar, powerful mechanic that has been amplified to meet the voracious player expectations of today. This game shows the industry needs all different types of games and this is all about player entertainment and stickiness. As always, adding enhanced player interaction means engagement and success, and the multi-level pick-and-click bonus does just that. Another modern-day classic in the making.”
Gameplay and Theme
The Butterfly Staxx sequel sports more reels and bonus features than its predecessor. The slot has a low-volatility system and an RTP of 96.35%. It displays 5 reels, 4 rows, and 40 fixed payliners, so you can definitely unlock more winning combinations. On top of the game’s elaborate structure, the play area’s reels independently function but spin all at the same time. You can trigger hidden symbols and winnings within each reel.
For the theme, Butterfly Staxx 2 centers around a magical and dreamy world featuring the species of Asteraceae and Rhopalocera. The high-value symbols are the glow-in-the-dark flowers, butterfly, and cocoons. If you can land 5 of them in a winning combination, you can get a x2 multiplier. The A to J card suit are the low-value symbols on the paytable, and the lotus flower represents the Wild symbol. The lotus can replace all other symbols except the Scatter.
Butterfly Staxx 2 adopted the same bonus features from the original game, but NetEnt added more exciting bonus rounds and games to the sequel. You can earn more money through the following:
Butterfly Spins – the cocoon symbol plays a special role in this feature. If you land active cocoon symbols on the reels, new butterflies will enter the gameplay to give you payouts.
Butterfly Frenzy – NetEnt enhanced the standard pick-and-play feature for Butterfly Frenzy. From stages 1 to 5, you can pick butterflies that award in-game coins to increase your payout. You are allowed to pick up to 10 butterflies for each stage.
