Get ready for a montage. Because the Neon Staxx mobile slot is taking you back… to the future! Actually. To the 80s. Sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves.
The really tricky bit about this Neon Staxx slot review is going to be to avoid putting in every 1980’s reference we can possibly imagine.
Because anyone who grew up in the 80s, or passed any time there, will instantly be taken back to the days of arcades, gaudy decor, and neon dazzle as soon as they open up this machine.
Even the music could be straight out of any montage training scene, full of drama and electronic keyboards.
Is this going to be one righteous slot machine? Or just stuck in the past?
We love the NetEnt video slots that take one feature, and make it big. For example, Stickers slot with the sticky wild re-spins. Or Reel Rush with it’s expanding reels on each win.
Sometimes you don’t need to be complicated to be good.
And with the Neon Staxx slot game, NetEntertainment have made it that at any point, any of the symbols on the reels can come stacked. That includes the wilds.
It makes the wins come fast and easy, with small 5x to 10x your bet wins ever 3 to 10 spins helping your budget even out as you spin, spin, spin.
The thing is, once you’re over reminiscing about the time you use to wear scrunchies and leg warmers, or jean jackets and neon Nikes… the Neon Staxx Touch slot looses some of it’s glamour.
We’ve had some decent wins in the free spins mind you. With one of the higher paying symbols always coming stacked, here is where you’ll get the occasional 80 to 100 times your bet win.
However, not to contradict ourselves, this is just a little too simple. After all, stacked symbols aren’t a feature by themselves. Many mobile slots comes with that as standard, such as the Quickspin Sinbad slot, or the Novomatic Power Stars.
Ultimately though, the reason this isn’t a 4 star slot review is that it doesn’t feel like, at any second, you could win something radical.
That said, this is pure arcade fun, allowing you to lose yourself for hours in a game that brings you back to the 80s.
Definitely one for when your budget is running low and you want to reminisce.

The Super Staxx Feature: All this means is that at any point any of the symbols on the reels can appear stacked - all except the scatter symbol.
Scatter and Free Spins: Before the start of the free spins, one of the four high paying symbols (the 'predator symbols' as NetEnt call them as they are represented by a lion, panther, eagle and cobra) will be chosen to be stacked throughout the free spins.
Depending on how many scatters you get, depends on how many free spins you trigger.
There's a joy of the the Neon Staxx mobile that's makes it impossible not to love if you're a child of the 80s.
However, once you looked past the theme, you realise that stacked symbols and the occasional 10 free spins will only entertain you so long before you'll feel a call for a machine with slightly bigger wins.
That said, fans of the likes of Starburst or the Lights slot game will enjoy the simple game play and the quick successive wins, allowing you to spin long into the arcade night on a conservative budget.
