Bat Stax from Novomatic is a Halloween-themed slot that promises fun, entertainment and huge payouts.
Bat Stax slot is based on the dark creatures of the night and though they’re certainly not the best sign of good luck, they will offer huge rewards anytime they make an appearance on the reels.
The game is set high in the sky right above purple clouds. The starry night sky does make for some stunning visuals and right in front of it, is the slot’s framed reels where you can trigger wins of up to 1,000x the stake.
Gameplay takes off on 5 reels and 3 rows with 20 fixed Paylines.
How to play
This slot has a coin range from 0.20 to 50. Symbols on the reels include playing cards, spiders, cats, and owls. The Owl is your way to big game wins – offering 500x the stake when you land 5 on the reels.
Bat Stax Slot Special Features
The game wild symbol is represented as the purple witch’s hat. It will replace all regular game symbols on the reels to help you form wins. The wild symbol would also bring you big wins when you land at least two on the reels. Aim for 5 to trigger a payout of 50x the stake.
Overlaid Special Expanding Symbol
The bat symbol serves as the overlaid special expanding symbol. It will pay at most 5x the reels when you land 5 of them in a combination.
Collect 3 or more bat symbols and they will expand to cover the entire reels starting from the left-most reels. That means if you land 3 bat symbols on reels 2, 4, and 4, they will expand to cover reels 1, 2, and 3. Filling all 5 reels with bat symbols will award you a payout of 100x the stake
Collect at least three pumpkin scatter symbols on the reels to trigger the free games feature. You will be awarded 10, 15, or 25, as well as, a prize of 2x, 10x, or 25x the stake when you collect 3, 4, or 5 pumpkin scatter.
During the bonus round, bat symbols landed will stay stuck in place and expand to fill reels 1 and 2. You could also be awarded a free re-spin which follows with other reels re-spinning. Landing more bat symbols will award more re-spins and fill the reels with bats.
The feature ends when no new bat symbols are landed on the reels.
You get to retrigger the free spins feature by landing more pumpkin symbols. You will be awarded 10, 15, or 25 additional free spins with 3, 4, or 5 more pumpkin scatters.
This slot isn’t generous enough to offer jackpot payouts but it does leave you with chances to trigger huge game wins of up to 1,000x the stake.
Return to Player (RTP)
Bat Stax has medium-volatility gameplay and an RTP of 95.2%.
Bat Stax packs some interesting bonus features that will help you fill your bankroll even on your first spin. However, the game’s RTP is a bit of a letdown. Still, that shouldn’t sway you from placing a bet and standing a chance to win up to 1,000x the stake.
