NetEnt Releases Strolling Staxx: Cubic Fruits
NetEnt is a company well-known in the online gambling industry, having been around for over 20 years. They have always been one of the top companies and have often been pioneers, being the first to apply for USA market participation. One of their latest releases is Strolling Staxx: Cubic Fruits, a slot machine that is sure to be popular with players all over the world.
The Betting Range and Structure of the Game
While many providers are going for colossal reels and ways-to-win systems, NetEnt has opted for a traditional 5 by 3 formation, allowing for a simple setup process for stakes and winnings calculation. All ten paylines are fixed, but the game offers a betting range of €0.10 to €300, with a minimum bet of €0.1 per line and a maximum bet of €20. The rest of the money goes to the bonus game explained below.
The Symbols and Graphics
As expected from a 21st-century game, Strolling Staxx offers impressive graphics and 3D animations. The game features card values, including jack, queen, king, ace, as well as fruit symbols such as cherries, lemons, strawberries, and watermelons. There is also a Wild symbol represented by the letter ‘W,’ which replaces all other symbols and provides payouts of 500x, 100x, or 25x for 5, 4, or 3 of a kind, just like the watermelon. NetEnt has also implemented the ‘colossal’ feature, which allows symbols to appear over one, six (2×3), or nine (3×3) fields.
Players can activate the Bonus Bet feature by clicking the Bonus Bet button, which increases the total stake by 50%. This means that the maximum possible bet is €300 instead of €200. Activating the Re-spin feature will make fruit symbols rain across the reels, increasing your chances of landing on a colossal 3 by 3 symbol and creating a winning combination. During each round, a random symbol is selected and placed inside a sign next to the reels. If the chosen sign appears stacked across the reels, the Re-spin feature is activated, awarding an additional free spin played at the same stake used during the activation round.
Strolling Staxx: Cubic Fruits is a great addition to NetEnt’s portfolio, offering players a wide betting range, 3D graphics, and simple gameplay mechanics. With the help of the Re-spin feature, players can potentially win up to 5,000x from a single spin. While the RTP of 96.24% may not be the highest around, the game’s other features are sure to bring a lot of fun to players worldwide.
