Strolling Staxx: Cubic Fruits is a Net Entertainment slot with 5 reels and 10 paylines that can be played from 10p to £200 a spin on all compatible devices. It comes with a Strolling Staxx Re-Spins feature where stacks of symbols and connected symbols move 1 reel left on each spin until they disappear. It also benefits from Colossal symbols and a Bonus Bet & Extra Chance feature where you play for 5 more coins a spin to get 3×3 Colossal symbols appearing.
Visually, Strolling Staxx: Cubic Fruits is quite calming which beautiful graphics and animations – with a cube-shaped feel, there’s a stream and plush meadow in the backdrop. Symbols on the reels include A, K, Q and J royals as well as various fruit like plums, cherries, lemons, strawberries and watermelons. The latter is the most rewarding symbol giving you 50 times your stake for 5 across a payline.
The W symbol is the wild and can appear as stacks or Colossal symbols anywhere on the reels – as you’d expect, the wild replaces all symbols to give you the best winning combination. It pays like the watermelon – 50 times your stake for 5 on a payline.
Now, symbols can appear as a single symbol or a 2×3 or 3×3 Colossal symbol – these can appear anywhere on the reels in the base game and main bonus feature. Once a Colossal symbol lands, it splits into single symbols (up to 9 possible).
If you get a symbol covering a reel entirely, you will trigger the Strolling Staxx Re-Spins feature – here, the stacks of symbols and connect symbols will shift 1 reel left on each spin. This carries on until all stacks disapapear from reel 1. A connected symbol is a symbol that is the same as the stack and is adjacent to the stack or a reel with a connected symbol. More stacks of symbols can appear which will retigger the feature to give you more re-spins.
Strolling Staxx: Cubic Fruits also comes with a Bonus Bet & Extra Chance feature – you can activate it by clicking on the ‘Bonus Bet’ button below the reels and will cost you 5 coins more per spin (e.g. 15p at minimum stake rather than 10p a spin).
Once activated, the Extra Chance part comes in when you trigger the Strolling Staxx Re-Spins feature. Here, you’ll benefit from overlay 3×3 Colossal symbols landing fully or partially to enhance your winning potential.
Strolling Staxx: Cubic Fruits looks great and is all about the re-spins really – you can get bigger wins, in theory, with the Bonus Bet & Extra Chance feature as 3×3 Colossal symbols appear. Saying that, this slot is medium variance with maximum wins of 500 times your stake on each spin/re-spin if you manage to fill the reels with the wild or the high value watermelon.
It’s a decent game but it would be have been nice to have higher value symbols or some free spins – it does remind me to Starburst a little in terms of the re-spins. If you prefer more volatile offerings, more bonus features and backstory, NetEnt’s Vikings cannot be missed.
