Take a trip back to the 1980s, when neon was all the rage and the digital age was just beginning, and you’ll have the inspiration for the exciting Neon Staxx slot from NetEnt.
Although inspired by the 1980s, this futuristic-looking slot both looks and sounds very up to date.
So does Neon Staxx stack up when it comes to other 5×4 slots offered today by New Jersey casinos online, or does it topple over unable to sustain the weight of expectation? To find out, we took a closer look at this popular slot.
Overview: Neon Staxx
Neon Staxx is a somewhat unusual 5×4 reel slot in that the reels are tilted back slightly, which gives the slot a somewhat three-dimensional feel. It is, however, a very clever design and gives the slot a unique appearance.
There are 40 fixed paylines in operation on every spin and you can wager from as little as $0.40 up to $200 on every spin. The choice is yours on how much you want to play for, and this does mean that Neon Staxx is suitable for players of all bankroll levels.
The slot’s presentation and sound are outstanding, and the sound in particular is worth a mention.
The graphics are simple, with the usual playing card lows on the reels, as well as the high symbols, a number of neon, vector graphic animals. There’s also the usual wild symbols, plus a scatter symbol which is easy to recognize as it is the only symbol that is never stacked in the game.
One nice feature of the slot is the speed at which it plays. You can really rattle through the spins on Neon Staxx very quickly.
While this does have implications for bankroll management, the fact you win relatively often means that it doesn’t impact you too greatly.
Who will the Neon Staxx slot appeal to?
In short, if you like slots that pay out often, then you are going to love Neon Staxx. If you are a low stakes player who enjoys the occasional flutter on the slot, then you’ll like Neon Staxx.
It may be an ’80s theme but there is enough in Neon Staxx to make it look like a thoroughly modern slot in terms of presentation and gameplay. Perhaps the only thing lacking is a bonus game or two to keep people entertained.
But in terms of pure New Jersey online slot action, this is a game that will have universal appeal.
Gameplay: Neon Staxx
It is fair to say that Neon Staxx’s gameplay is stunning. The fact that random symbols are stacked on every spin makes you keep a close eye on the reels and brings you into the game, while the regularity of payouts means that you always feel rewarded for your patience.
What Neon Staxx has right is the balance with payouts. Sure, the majority are smaller wins, less than your stake, but they’re regular enough you get a bigger win. That tops things up and occasionally you can hit a very big win in the base game, which gives your balance a real boost.
Connected to this is the free spins feature, which is triggered frequently compared to other slots, and which sees you earn an increasing number of free spins (10, 15, or 20) depending on if you land three, four, or five scatter symbols on the reels. When free spins are triggered, a high symbol (or wild) is selected as the stacked symbol for free spins.
The free spins round does have significant variance in payouts, sometimes it may be small (say 4-10x your bet, but other times can see very large wins). Once again, Neon Staxx hits the balance right with the gameplay in free spins too.
Special features: Neon Staxx
At the start of each spin any of the symbols on the reel can be stacked across all reels, including the wild but excluding the scatter symbol.
This can help create bigger wins in the base game, especially when you land three stacked symbols on the first three reels.
Stacked symbol in free spins
During free spins, one of the high symbols from the game is randomly selected as the stacked symbol for free spins. Again, this symbol can help you create multiple winning paylines in free spins.
One of the things that isn’t immediately apparent on Neon Staxx is the pace of the game. You can get through your spins very quickly. Not only that, but you can often trigger free spins rounds one after the other at relatively frequent times.
Random stacking feature
The biggest and most exciting thing about Neon Staxx is that at any point any of the symbols on the reel (including the wild symbol, but excluding the scatter) can become stacked on all reels.
This can result in some fantastic base game wins, as well as bigger wins during free spins.
The way the slot plays, sounds and looks is first rate. Yes, it may have something of a 1980s theme, but unlike other retro-styled slots this one is perfectly at home in the 21st century given its graphics and the way the 5×4 reels are presented on screen.
One of the best things about Neon Staxx is that it likes to reward players when they hit free spins. While not all wins are big of course, it does seem far easier to trigger bigger wins on this slot than on other comparable games.
That makes for a very appealing game, especially if that win includes the symbol stacked across all the reels or plenty of wilds.
Lack of depth
If there’s one criticism of the gameplay of Neon Staxx, it’s that some people will find the game a little too simplistic.
The jackpot size isn’t huge at 80,000 coins, and this is likely to deter people who prefer playing slots that offer them a chance at a life-changing amount of money without having to risk a huge amount of their own on every spin.
With 40 paylines on a 5×4 slot, some of the paylines are not immediately apparent. You can think you have hit a winning payline when you haven’t, sometimes even if you have two wilds in place on the second and third reel.
Graphics and soundtrack 4/5
The only thing lacking on this slot is perhaps a touch of animation.
The graphics and soundtrack are space-age and digitized and they complement each other quite beautifully. You will struggle to find a better looking and better-presented slot.
Originality and creativity 4/5
Stacked symbols are nothing new in the online slots world, but how Neon Staxx uses them is very clever and this does keep the player interested. Add into this the 5×4 reels, rather than the tired 5×3 and you have a slot that is slick and somewhat different from the crowd.
Play value 5/5
Don’t get me wrong, Neon Staxx isn’t a slot you can play and are guaranteed to walk away richer than when you started. However, play for long enough and the chances are you’ll hit a big win at some point.
Solid rewards in the base game and super-rewards in free spins make this one of the best value New Jersey online slots I’ve played in a long time.
Jackpot potential 2/5
Given that Neon Staxx is a low variance slot and pays out relatively decent-sized wins frequently, it would be too much to expect a huge jackpot.
Eighty thousand coins is still a nice amount to win, especially at higher coin levels, but it isn’t the mega jackpot some slot fans like to chase.
Repeat play 5/5
With its retro vibe, regular wins, generous free spins round and the fact that the game is genuinely fun to play, this is a slot that you will be hitting up time and time again.
Total score 20/25
Take a bow Neon Staxx, one of the best slots I’ve played in a long time. I loved the ’80s techno styling, the 5×4 reels, the changing stacked symbols, regular base game wins (of a decent amount) and of course, the big free spins wins too.
It’s not perfect – some would argue the base game is a bit simplistic and the lack of other bonus features may put off some – but for genuine fun, value and entertainment, it is hard to beat.
