Butterfly Staxx is a desktop and mobile-optimised video slot by NetEnt that will delight those of you who love to see beautiful butterflies dancing around your gardens in the summer. However, the sight of these lovely creatures will also make your heart flutter as they can help you win cash prizes in many different ways.
Butterfly Staxx comes with five reels and forty fixed paylines and is set by the side of a river valley at dusk.
With the Re-Spin Feature, any whole stack of golden butterflies is moved to the left-hand side of the reels before a re-spin is awarded, and if any of their friends decide to join them, they too are relocated to the left while another re-spin takes place.
In the Free Games Feature, you can win as many as seven Butterfly Spins which take place on enhanced reels that only use cocoon symbols. With each spin, any cocoons that are activated move to the leftmost reel where they become fixed in position, meaning that by the time you take your final free spin, you can have several stacks of high-paying butterflies.
Why we love it
Butterfly Staxx is a slot with an extremely high RTP (Theoretical Return to Player Rate) of 96.80%. This means that the house edge is just over 3% and in theory there is a chance you could see at least 96.80% of your money returned in the long-term. Of course, there’s also the possibility that you could win the game’s top payout of 850 times your stake early on!
We also like that the minimum bet is just 20p per spin as we believe that all of the special features combined with the high RTP provide players with great value-for-money. And, at the other end of the spectrum, high-rollers should also find that the max bet of £400 per spin is an attractive enough stake.

The beautiful pink-and-yellow lotus flower is the Butterfly Staxx wild symbol, and it can be present on all five reels in both the main game and the re-spins feature. As the wild symbol, the lotus flower can substitute for all symbols except scatters, which allows it to help you win more prizes!
On any spin that a full stack (i.e. three-rows-high) stack of yellow butterflies appears on a reel, the Re-Spins Feature is initiated. The feature causes the stacked butterflies to fly onto the leftmost reel which does not already contain one or more butterfly symbols (i.e. if Reel 1 is available, they’ll alight there). The stack then stays in place while the reels are re-spun, and any further butterfly symbols that come into view also fly left as far as it’s possible for them to go so that they can join the others. New butterflies appearing also means you get another re-spin, and the feature only ends when no more butterflies land on the reels.
BUTTERFLY SPINS FEATURE
The Butterfly Spins Feature is essential a Free Spins Bonus, but it works differently to your average online slot.
You get five, six or seven Butterfly Spins respectively when three, four or five of the purple lotus scatter symbols land anywhere on the reels.
The feature uses a new set of reels which can only contain green caterpillar cocoons. Each time the reels stop spinning, any glowing cocoons transform into yellow butterflies and fly to the leftmost reel as per the Re-Spins Feature. Although you don’t receive any actual re-spins, the fact that you can end up with one or more full stacks of butterflies means that the Butterfly Spins Feature can be rich in cash rewards.
Return To Player
RTP is 96.80%. Malfunction voids all plays and payouts.
