Butterfly Staxx Slot Machine
Butterfly Staxxby NetEntisn’t your typical action-based slot machine. It’s a much more placid affair. The gameplay takes place in the early evening twilight in a suitably impressive valley and the soothing ethereal music is ideal to unwind with after a stressful day.
The game itself is played across five reels and four rows. Players are looking to match symbols across one of 40 fixed win lines. Doing so will, of course, win cash prizes!
There are a few neat special features that makes this game stand out. It doesn’t offer anything too wild, however. The additional game modes are variations on classic slot machine special features. Think free spins and re-spins.

Butterfly Staxx Review
|Max Win:||60x line bet|
|Our Rating:||3.5 / 5|
- Bright colours and appealing layout. The designers of Butterfly Staxx have managed to create a stylish machine with a lot of character.
- Good bonus features. Although re-spins and free spins are standard on many slot machines, Butterfly Staxx manages to mix up gameplay with the moving Butterfly symbols.
- Ethereal soundtrack. The game’s music might not be to everyone’s taste, but it complements the action well.
- Top jackpot wins are rather low. There are many machines out there that allow players to win five-figure multiples of their individual line bets. This makes the 60x the line bet top jackpot on Butterfly Staxx seem miniscule.
On the Butterfly Staxx slot machine, the largest payments are awarded for matching five-of-a-kind of the higher value symbols along a single win line. We’ve listed the pay-outs for hitting five of the same symbols below:
- Yellow butterfly = 60x the line bet.
- Red, purple, or blue flower = 40x the line bet.
Players who land a full stack of Butterfly symbols that cover an entire reel will activate re-spins. All the Butterfly symbols will fly over to the leftmost position on the same row not already containing a Butterfly symbol. They will remain on the reels until the end of the re-spin mode.
All additional Butterfly symbols that land on the reels during the re-spin mode will fly to the leftmost reel in the same way. This will award an extra re-spin. Again, they will stay on the reels until re-spins are over.
When no extra Butterfly symbols land on the reels, the re-spin mode is over, and any wins are paid to the player.
Landing three or more “Scatter” symbols anywhere on the reels during the base game will activate the Butterfly free spins mode.
- Three “Scatters” = Five Butterfly Spins.
- Four “Scatters” = Six Butterfly Spins.
- Five “Scatters” = Seven Butterfly Spins.
During these free spins, only Cocoon symbols will land on the reels. These can be either dormant or active. Active Cocoon symbols landing on the reels will turn into Butterfly symbols.
Just like in the re-spin mode, all Butterfly symbols will fly to the leftmost position on the same row, providing this position isn’t already occupied by a Butterfly symbol. All line bet wins will then be added to the total win amount. These symbols will remain on the reels until the end of the Butterfly Spin round.
In addition to the symbols that award the top jackpots in Butterfly Staxx, there are also some that don’t pay quite as handsomely. As is common on modern slot machines, these have been taken from the upper end of a standard deck of playing cards (A, K, Q, J). Again, we’ve listed the prizes for hitting five-of-a-kind of each below:
- Ace, King, Queen, or Jack = 20x the line bet.
The number of win lines on Butterfly Staxx is fixed at 40. This means that players are only able to alter the amount of coins bet on each one, as well as the value of each of them. The lowest coin value is just 1p, and the highest is £2. Meanwhile, the minimum number of coins that can be bet per line is one and the maximum is ten.
Therefore, with all the values set to their minimum, the lowest possible bet per spin is just 40p. Alternatively, if players max out of the variables, the highest possible bet per spin is an impressive £800. Such a wide range of bet sizes will surely satisfy all levels of player.
Butterfly Staxx is a solid game that mixes up some conventions of online slot machines to give an experience that feels fresh, at least for a while. Whilst those serious players who’ve played a lot of different slots previously might find that the action gets stale a little quicker than they would like, recreational players will surely find a lot to enjoy on this offering from NetEnt.
