Strolling Staxx is a colourful fruity slot, developed by NetEnt. It has 5 reels and 10 paylines, with bets starting from just 10p a spin. These cube-shaped fruits have more to them than your standard fruit-themed game. With the special re-spins feature you have multiple opportunities to create some wins if you can manage a lucky spin landing.
Welcome to the land of cubes. The trees are cube-shaped, as are the flowers, hedges, ice in the river and yes, the symbols on the reels. There is no lack of 3D design here, and it makes for a unique-looking game. See where the cubes can take you across the reels and check out the impact of the huge cubes when you play Strolling Staxx. Read on to find out more!
Set Your Stake
Your 10 paylines are encompassed into a 10-credit bet and will be in play with every spin of the reels. When you set your bet, the coin value is multiplied by these 10 credits. This means that the options which range from 1p to £2 will create a bet between 10p and £20 a spin, so you can adjust the coin value as you wish.
To add some extra weight to your bet, you have the option to increase the bet level, which is automatically set to 1, to any value up to a maximum of 10. The bet level value is, in essence, adding extra coins to each of the credits you are betting against, so will be multiplied by your coin bet to create your total bet.
Check you are content with the total bet before you start to spin; it is displayed just beneath the – yep, you guessed it – cube-shaped spin button.
In Strolling Staxx, you will need to match three or more identical symbols on a payline from the furthest left reel towards the right, in order to win. Maximum matches of five of a kind have the highest payouts.
The most valuable cubic fruit on the reels is the watermelon. It’s the first watermelon of that shape we’ve ever seen! Luckily for you, though, five of a kind could win you 500 times your bet line value.
Five strawberries all the way from left to right can award 150 times the line bet, with five lemon cubes offering top payouts of 120 times the coin value.
If you can land five sets of cherries along a payline, you could be awarded 100 times the line bet. Equally, what looks like either a plum or a grape, the purple fruit, also has top prizes of 100 times.
Our lower-value cube symbols are the card values from Ace to Jack, offering top payouts between 30 and 50 times your line bet for five of a kind on a payline.
As well as the tasty fruit salad in the main game, there are a few other features to look out for.
The golden ‘W’ symbol is the wild and can substitute for any of the standard symbols in play to help build up some winning combos. It can appear as a standard-sized symbol or as a colossal, covering multiple positions at once.
What’s more is that you can also win by matching multiple wilds on a payline, up to the sound of 500 times the line bet!
Strolling Staxx Re-Spins
If, after the reels have settled, you have the same symbol stacked all the way up a reel, you will activate the Strolling Staxx re-spins.
You will be allocated a re-spin, where the stacked symbols, as well as any adjoining symbols which match it, stay on the reels and move one position to the left. This will continue until the symbols disappear off the left side of the reels.
If you land more stacks throughout this feature, it will continue until the last stack has worked its way left.
Remember the walking wilds feature from The Invisible Man? This works in a similar manner.
Any symbol has the capability to appear as a single symbol, or a colossal, either 2x2 or 3x3 in size. The symbol selected to be colossal will change with each spin, and you will see the chosen symbol on the wooden board to the left of the game.
Having symbols which cover more than one spot can make it a little easier to land some wins, either in the main game or re-spins. The colossal symbols may not always land in a visible position, but when they do, you will know about it!
Bonus Bet & Extra Chance
Next to the max bet symbol beneath the reels, you will see the Bonus Bet button. When it is greyed out, it is not active, and when it is active, it is green and gold.
When active, the game can be played with 15 credits per bet level, as opposed to 10 in standard play.
The ‘Extra Chance’ is activated when re-spins are triggered but a 3x3 colossal symbol isn’t landed.
During the extra chance, overlay 3x3 symbols can land either fully or partially on the reels, giving you an additional opportunity to try and land a win.
The design of Strolling Staxx is fun, futuristic and individual, and it makes a change from the classic fruit machine slot games. Having the potential to increase winnings with the special features and especially the extra chance, NetEnt has been kind in allowing plenty of opportunities! It then all comes down to the luck of the reel landings.
Return to Player (RTP) of Strolling Staxx is 95.95%.
