The Strolling Staxx slot by NetEnt is coming out on the 24th of January 2019 and we are super excited to see this fruity treat. Here's why.
We are not going to lie. Currently, there are not a whole load of slot games that we know of coming in 2019.
So saying that this is one of our most anticipated mobile slots of 2019 isn’t, necessarily saying much. But that doesn’t stop us from being excited.
We have two words for you: Walking Wilds and Symbol Respins.
Before we start looking at the good and bad points of this new NetEnt Touch slot, let’s see what it’s going to offer:
If you can’t watch this 3 minute YouTube video, don’t worry, here’s everything you need to know.
Let’s start with the theme – it’s a cubic fruity world, where trees are cubes, the fruits are cubes and even the grass and the flowers are cubes.
It doesn’t need to make sense. It just needs to be a bright, happy, familiar theme where they can introduce a strange but wonderful concept.
In many ways, it’s similar to the Reel Rush slot machine also by NetEnt. Bright and happy, but it’s the bonus features that count.
Here’s a quick recap of everything you’ll find in Strolling Staxx:
Can you guess what we are excited about now? Let’s give you a clue: it’s not that it’s got 10 paylines, but might have everything to do with that crazy fun sounding re-spins.
Remember how the sticky wins in Jack Hammer and Jack Hammer 2 games are still talked about as the best genre of their type?
Now, what if we had a little bit of both? That’s what the Strolling Straxx Re-spin promise to give you come the 24th of January.
Basically two reels of the same symbol – wilds, fruits, or colossal symbols – will trigger the re-spins. The symbols will then move from left to right, and capture any other same symbols in their wake.
It sounds awesome.
Anyone who loves playing NetEnt games online may be getting a little concerned right about now, because of the name of this new mobile phone game.
If you don’t remember (and we wouldn’t blame you) there are two other video slots that came before this Strolling Staxx online slot, and they are not the best.
They are not awful, just very forgettable.
Thankfully, we are happy to report, Strolling Staxx looks like it’s nothing like these two beasts.

We are going to take a guess and say that they needed a name, and coming up with new game names is hard.
So, because the whole nature of the feature is about getting stacks of symbols on the reels, they called it Strolling Staxx.
But as you can see from the all the information we’ve given you about it, it’s about as far from Butterfly and Neon as we are from the North Pole.
Yes, it’s the same universe, but with 10 payline and walking wilds, symbols and colossal symbols, (and no free spins, just re-spins) it’s got very little in common with it’s past sister slots.
The one thing we are really worried about is that bonus bet?
Why? Because, from what we can tell, the bonus bet just… make it easier to give you wins? We think?
Here’s the full description of what this bet does by NetEnt “The Extra Chance can be activated while playing with Bonus Bet. During the Extra Chance, overlay 3×3 Colossal symbols can fully or partially land on the reels.”
So basically, you get more colossal symbols, which when they land, can cover whole reels, which then gives you more re-spins.
What NetEnt is asking you to do is to pay extra to increase the hit rate of this machine. Not the Return to Player slot Rate – that actually goes down: without the bonus bet, the RTP is an overall of 95.98%. With the bonus bet, this lowers to 95.95%.
BUT, and this is important, your chances of hitting the Strolling Re-spins are increased significantly; which, let’s be honest, is where 90% of the fun is going to be found.
At the time of writing, this slot isn’t due to come out for over a month. We have Christmas and so many new games coming at the beginning of January, this feels far away.
But, let’s be honest, the Turn Your Fortune slot isn’t going to be the big release of the new year. This is.
Meanwhile, there are many fantastic NetEnt slots to investigate – Reel Rush, as we mentioned before, is a fantastic game that brings you a simple theme with a fresh fun feature.
But if you are feeling more festive then Jingle Spin slot, with its bonus reels full of surprises, will keep you smiling till the end of January.
