Neon Staxx slot available at Mr Green

It’s hard to think of a slot that has ‘The 80s’ written all over it like this one. The gradually-increasing-tempo music resembles a movie where the hero is training for a big fight/race, there’s Neon everywhere as the name suggests and you wouldn’t be the slightest bit surprised if Marty McFly all of a sudden appeared on the reels. But aside from all that, there’s a very decent game going on here.

Playing Neon Staxx

It’s a basic rule of good branding that a customer knows what to expect when they pick up one of your products. And players of NetEnt slots can always rest assured that if they know how the staking on one of their slots works, they know how they all work.

You start by adjusting the Bet Level which goes from 1 to 10. Then you move the Coin Value (0.01 to 0.50) up and down. Don’t worry if you can’t be bothered to work it all out yourself because you can just glance at the figure below the reels that says ‘Bet’ which has worked out how much your next spin is for, based on your adjustments.

The Max Bet button is available for high-rollers who enjoy the ‘all or nothing’ approach to slot playing. In this case the big bet is 100 CAD, which is plenty.

The Autoplay function is also there so you can be spinning while also making a cup of coffee, playing with the cat or…watching ‘Back to the Future’.

NetEnt have stayed away from the norm here a bit because it’s a 5x4 slot rather than a 5x3 one. There are 40 active paylines on any given spin.

Features of Neon Staxx

The high value symbols in the game are known as Predator symbols. So, there’s a lion, a panther, an eagle and a snake menacingly patrolling those reels.

In many ways one of the attractive features of Neon Staxx is that it doesn’t actually make much sense. There’s an 80s theme to it as we’ve mentioned already and there’s also a bit of a Sci-Fi one where you feel like a few spins on the slot is also a trip into the future. So quite why the predatory animals are there is all a bit unclear, but it just adds to the fun.

For some reason the reels seem to be at a bit of a slanted angle, one of the few times we here at Mr Green have ever seen that before.

Neon Staxx Wild Symbol

The Wild symbol is written in bright pink, surrounded by a gold disk and can appear anywhere on the reels.

It substitutes for any other symbol, excluding the Scatter, but doesn’t have a Multiplier attached to it when helping you secure a win.

Neon Staxx Bonus Round

Super Staxx Feature
Maybe not a feature in the traditional sense of the word relating to a slot but it’s a unique characteristic of the game and certainly helps you secure those all-important big wins, so we’re going to consider it as such.

Now and then a whole reel appears stacked and that can sometimes be with the Wild symbol. Better still, sometimes there are several reels that are stacked and next to each other as well. And interestingly this tends to happen on Reels 1, 2 and 3 meaning that you’d be forgiven for getting quite excited when the same symbol appears on the first three reels stacked…with two more reels still to come.

Free Spins
The Scatter is a Pink diamond surrounded by a green disk this time and can appear anywhere on the reels. You’ll need at least three of them to activate the free spins round and if it’s three of them you get, then it’s 10 free spins you can look forward to. Four gets you 15 and the maximum of five gives you 20 free spins to look forward to.

But this is no regular free spins round. That’s because before it starts the game will randomly choose one symbol to appear stacked – one of the high-value predator symbols no less -which will greatly help you when the free spins come.

Sadly, there are no re-triggered free spins to look forward to or Multipliers but a decent free spins round should normally see you walk away with a big boost to your bank.

Starburst slot mechanics

Most slots these days are available on mobile (and this one certainly is) but some are better than others when it comes to playing on those devices. In this case, this is definitely a good one to play on your tablet or Smartphone of choice.

Neon Staxx is a low volatility slot. Ultimately there are plenty of regular wins in the base game and it’s possible to secure big wins just there but it’s rare to secure a huge win from one spin and rare to go that long without a win.  It has an RTP of 97%.

Max Win Bet ($): 40,000

Max Win (coins): 80,000

Max Bet ($): 100

Min Bet ($): 0.20

Return to player: 96.90%

Volatility: Medium

Free Play available: Yes

Final conclusions

Neon Staxx is just the sort of game that you might be thinking of playing if you’re new to all this slot business. It ticks all the main boxes of having cool graphics, being easy to understand straight away what the game is all about and has one big bonus feature that you can always look forward to activating.

Players will also enjoy the fact that in between getting to those free spins – and there may be long intervals before getting them – the Super Staxx feature should help secure some decent wins along the way.

More experienced players many not be quite so fond of the game but for them it’s one to come back to now and then, if only to relive the 80s.
