Intense Mobile Play on Neon Staxx Touch
US slots fans who love the gaudy neon colors and synth-heavy soundtracks of the 80s will be pleased to know that Neon Staxx has joined the titles on offer in NetEnt’s Touch series. The five reels and four rows of Neon Staxx Touch are thus available to players on the go, via iPad, iPhone, or Android-enabled tablets and smart phones. The mobile version features the same fast play and stacking icons that attracted enthusiasts to the original.
Icons Depict Poker Symbols and Cyborg Predators
In keeping with its 80s feel, Neon Staxx Touch renders icons in sleek geometric lines and jewel colors, backed by a neon glow. Only the four Poker symbols A-J are used among the low scorers, and the five higher-value icons all depict cyborg-enhanced animal predators; a Snake, an Eagle, a Lion, a Tiger and a Panther.
All Icons Stack in Normal Play
The Neon Staxx Touch SuperStaxx feature is one of the title’s main attractions. During regular play, any icons excluding the Scatter can arrive in stacks of two, three or four; so in the last case, they fill the entire reel and make more prize-winning sequences possible. This stacking occurs randomly, but three or more identical stacks in succession beginning at Reel 1 can trigger serious prizes. At the start of Free Spins rounds, one of the predator symbols is chosen at random, and only the Wild and the nominated Predator icon will appear stacked during the round. Nevertheless, between the two of them, they can also deliver substantial wins.
Wild and Scatter Make Extra Wins Possible
Neon Staxx Touch uses a simple target logo emblazoned with the word Wild as its all-purpose substitute. Wilds can combine with any other matching icons except the Scatter to create more winning paylines, and three, four or five Wilds in sequence on a payline from Reel 1 will also win 15, 30 or 200 coins, respectively. The Scatter is a glittering Triangle labeled Scatter. Depending on how many Scatters come up on a spin, a variable number of Free Spins is triggered: 10, 15 or 20, for three, four or five Scatters. Free Spins cannot be retriggered during the round, but the combination of a stacked Predator icons and stacked Wilds can make these rounds very profitable.
Fast Mobile Play via Touchscreen
NetEnt’s Touch games range has been around for more than five years, but Neon Staxx Touch will be of particular interest to those who enjoy the retro 80s design palette. The SuperStaxx feature is also a drawcard, as are the flexible bet settings. Coin denominations and number of coins bet per payline are also variable, so players can wager as little as 20c and as much as $100 per spin, while still covering all 40 paylines. With the SuperStaxx feature creating the distinct possibility of all five reels being filled by 20 identical stacked icons, the top prize on a single spin can be as high as 40,000 coins. The fast pace and intuitive play on a touchscreen is an added bonus.
