Neon Staxx is a ‘retro’ style NetEnt slot with various special game features that will virtually take the player back to the ‘80s of last century, especially because of its ‘flashy’ and colorful design (inspired, of course, by ‘neon light’) and because of the electronic (synthesizer) background music which appropriately accompanies the slot’s gameplay.
The Neon Staxx Wild symbols are pretty clear; a metallic ring symbol with WILD scrawled across in pink. These symbols substitute for all symbols (except for the Scatter gems) in order to create a winning pay line. You will find Neon Staxx Wild symbols in both the main game and the Neon Staxx Slot Free Spins bonus round.
Wild symbols are not only substitutes but symbols on their own right and can also create winning combinations, usually as one of the highest paying symbols. For example, a 3 Wild winning combination pays 15 coins, 4 Wilds pays 30 coins and 5 Wilds pays a huge 200 coins!
Neon Staxx includes an extra feature in order to create wins; the Superstaxx Feature. This is randomly activated, so can appear at any time and results in symbols ‘stacking’ up to cover an entire reel, from top to bottom. This can happen on any number of reels at one time and is available for all symbols, except the Scatter.
Before a Free Spins mode (see below) starts a single spinning reel appears on which only ‘predator’ symbols (the lion, cougar, eagle and snake symbols) and Wild symbols are depicted. The player needs to stop the reel from spinning and the symbol that subsequently appears will become the Super Staxx symbol during ALL Free Spins game rounds.
In the main game, when 3 or more Scatter symbols simultaneously appear anywhere on the reels, the Neon Staxx Free Spins mode is activated. For 3 Scatter symbols, 10 Free Spins are rewarded, 4 Scatter symbols will grant 15 Free Spins and 5 Scatter symbols will win 20 Free Spins.
All NetEnt slot Free Spins game rounds are played with the same coin value and on the same bet level as was played with in the game round that activated the Free Spins mode. The Neon Staxx free spins round can only be activated from the main game, so further free spins cannot be collected within the bonus round itself.
