With unusual mechanics and pretty graphics, this Strolling Staxx mobile slot is like a stroll in the park… if the park had drugs and the landscape started moving.
The full name of this NetEnt machine is the Strolling Staxx: Cubic Fruits slot because this studio loves semi-colons. Wild Wild West: The Great Train Robbery slot, Drive: Multiplier Mayhem game, Warlords: Crystals of Power… the list goes on.
Still, this quirk doesn’t stop the fact that this Strolling Staxx slot is very pretty, with lots of bright colours shimmering in the background and fruit in cube shapes as the symbols on the reel.
First, you have to decide whether you want to pay the fee and activate the bonus bet. This increases the minimum bet of this 10 payline slot from 0.10 a spin to 0.15.
But what it does is decrease the RTP of this slot. It goes from 95.98% (no bonus bet) to 95.95% (bonus bet) – only a slight difference true, but still less.
Does that mean you get less win? Sure. But only so insignificantly that you shouldn’t worry about it.
Because what’s not insignificant is by how much the RTP of the re-spin feature increases; from 68.7% (no bonus bet) to 77.7% (bonus bet).
That’s a huge increase and it means that not only are you more likely to hit the re-spins and the colossal symbols, but you get bigger wins when you do.
In short, turn the bonus bet ON.
At any point, you may get colossal symbols drop down from above and land partially or wholly onto any of the 5 reels of this Strolling Staxx slot.
The reason this is significant, other than the fact that stacks of symbols are always welcomed, is the fact that if one reel or more is fully covered in the same symbol you get re-spins.
But not just any re-spins. All the symbols that touch that reel full of stacks will start moving left to right, and the respins only stop when all the symbols are off the screen.
You can even get a wild on screen, and they start walking like in Halloween Jack game. Except they happen rarely so don’t expect it often.
It’s a fun feature for about 10 or 15 minutes gameplay, but not something that will keep you hooked for hours.

Wilds: The W is the wild symbol and can be used to replace any other symbol in order to create a winning payline. It can come as a colossal symbol or as a strolling symbol.
Bonus Bet and Extra Chance: If you add an extra 5 coins to your bet you increase your chances of landing colossal symbols on the reels.
The RTP of the overall game decreases from 95.98% (no bonus bet) to 95.95% (bonus bet). BUT the RTP of the Strolling Staxx re-spin increases from 68.7% (no bonus bet) to 77.7% (bonus bet).
You also, sometimes, get an extra chance if a colossal symbol doesn't land fully on the reels.
Colossal Symbols: Any symbol can appear on the reels as a single symbol covering a 2x3 or 3x3 space. These can land fully or partially on the reels.
Strolling Staxx Re-Spins: If one or more reels are covered with the same symbol, creating a stack of symbols, you'll get re-spins. All of the same symbols connected vertically or horizontally will start moving from left to right, in as many re-spins as it takes to have no more of these symbols left.
We like simple games, we especially like simple games that surprise us.
And this Strolling Staxx slot on mobile is a pleasant surprise, especially if you are willing to use the bonus bet to increase your chances of getting bigger wins.
Even still, the wins here are not huge and waiting for those colossal symbols to show up, and those re-spins can be a little slow.
Yet, this is still one of the decent mid-range NetEnt slot machines that is fun for some quick easy spins.
