Neon Staxx is a NetEnt video slot with five reels over four rows and 40 Paylines. It’s low-to-medium variance, with a retro ‘80s vibe, an intensely fast pace and some superb HD neon colours – not to mention a throbbing synth soundtrack!
You’ll step into a futuristic city skyscape coloured in neon pink and blue. Watch out for the roaming predators including snakes, birds, lions and tigers, although finding their symbols and handling them well can seriously boost your winnings.
What’s more, you can win up to 400 times your initial stake in both the free spins feature and the base game.
How to play
Play this game from just 20p a spin – coin sizes range from a penny to 50p, so this slot is suited to a variety of budgets and both high rollers as well as those who prefer to stake a modest outlay.
Symbols come at you thick and fast from the minute you enter this game, so be on your guard from the off. These include letter and predator icons. Choose between three and five matching letter symbols to pocket between four and 25 coins; eagles award up to 50 coins, snakes 40, tigers a maximum of 75 and the regal lion 100.
Look out for the Wild and the Scatter. The former can award instant wins, paying 15 coins for three on a line, 30 for four and a whopping 200 for five. Wilds also replace all other icons apart from the Scatter.
The Scatter is a triangle and triggers the free spins feature described below.
Launch this one when you have at least three Scatter icons anywhere on the reels. Landing three gives you 10 free spins, four awards you 15 and five bags you 20.
Neon Staxx is really all about this feature. The round is activated randomly, in the base game as well as the free spins round, meaning it can pop up on the reels at any moment. The whole reel becomes stacked with a single predator symbol, chosen at random, and this can lead to some substantial payouts, depending on the value of the particular stacked symbol.
Indeed, you can win more than a thousand coins, so, as we said, a definite highlight of this slot.
Return to Player (RTP)
This is a relatively decent 96.9% with Neon Staxx, and slightly above the industry average, so not too shabby.
Entertaining and thrilling in equal measure, Neon Staxx has a cool feel to it which you should enjoy, whether or not you’re old enough to remember the 1980s! You can play on desktop or mobile devices, although one reviewer commented that the four reels do look slightly odd on an iPhone.
Another said that Neon Staxx wasn’t perhaps quite as hard-hitting as something like Starburst. (Although one commentator said it was every bit as pacey.) But, generally speaking, you can look forward to staxx of fun! Give it a whirl, see for yourself and let us know how you found it.
