Neon Staxx slot from NetEnt

Neon Staxx slot from NetEnt
NetEnt released the retro-futuristic Neon Staxx slot in June 2016. Step into a futuristic realm, bathed in hues of neon pink and neon blue, and watch out for the predators who roam the reels. They seem to be genetically altered lions, tigers, birds, and snakes. Instead of running away from them, you should chase them, for they can fetch you over some big winnings.

The Neon Staxx slot comes as a 5x4 tilted playing field, crossed with 40 fixed pay lines, Low-Medium volatility, and an RTP of 96.90%. Unfortunately, despite its high RTP, the slot is not popular within the gambling community, which affects the prize pool negatively.

You can check out Neon Staxx for free in the DEMO version right here on our site. No registration is required.

Personal testers’ opinion

Neon Staxx slot has good winning potential due to the main feature after which the slot is named - the stacks. It makes no difference if they are triggered during the Free Spins or during the regular game. They will surely provide you with some big payouts. During our sessions, the maximum winning we received was about 400x total bets.

The probability of any win in any spin is 28.12%, and the Free Spins are launched every 147th spin (0.68%) on average. The wagering rating is 4.91 (out of 10), which makes it unsuitable to fulfill the wagering requirements. So, bonus hunters better hunt further for more appropriate games.

Review and recommendations by the testing team

  • It might be a matter of taste, but according to us, the Neon Staxx slot is not all that pleasant to the eyes. The bright pink and blue colours start to get old quickly, but on the other hand, the retro sci-fi soundtrack did please our ears. This, too, is a matter of taste, of course. 
  • What matters most to us players is the paying potential of the slot, which in this case is good. It can trigger full screens of symbols, including higher-paid ones. The slot often teases by putting stacked symbols on reels 1 and 2, which gives you the impression that a big win is just around the corner. But you’ll be disappointed often when the remaining reels are filled with completely different symbols. During our tests, we often got an almost full screen, but only with the lowest-paid symbols. We didn’t see a full screen of high-value symbols, but that is surely possible in theory.
  • Neon Staxx online slot is not good at keeping the balance, behaving at the extremes - delivering zero or full screens. Nothing in between. Or making you go through a dead spins streak, or suddenly giving you a few full grids with winning symbols. In the meantime, the balance is also not kept well by other small payments.
  • 3, 4, and 5 Scatter symbols trigger respectively 10, 15, and 20 Free Spins. They are frequently activated in a series of 2-3 and with short distances between them. After that follows a long interval (200+ spins) with no bonus game at all.
  • Before you start to enjoy the Free Spins, you get to choose a dominant symbol, or at least the slot makes you believe you have any influence on which symbol is chosen. Unfortunately, in reality, the symbol that is supposed to bring you the big wins is mostly disappointing and often doesn’t appear in the right place at the right time. 
  • The average winnings during our tests were around 20x-60x total bets, which didn’t make up for the loss we endured during the regular spins. Unlike most games, the Free Spins don’t bring in the biggest results overall. In the base game, the slot also has a high potential of rewarding the player with a well-paid combination.
  • The SuperStaxx feature is triggered randomly and contains a fully stacked reel, resulting in huge payouts when combined with just a few identical symbols on the remaining reels.

How to win at the Neon Staxx slot machine? (Conclusion)

  • We cannot say it often enough: Always test slots in the free DEMO version before investing real money.
  • This is not one of the most popular slots, so it’s wise to play at a big casino, where the prize pool is filled quicker. 
  • We do not recommend the Neon Staxx slot machine for playing with real money, but if you decide to try your luck anyway, we can only hope luck is with you. If you catch a negative chain of spins, try changing the denominations a few times. The potential for good winnings is reasonably divided during the base spins and the Free Spins, in both cases due to Wilds (full screen of them in the main game, or stacked reels of them in the bonus game). So, if you hit a big win before the bonus round is triggered, there is no need to hang around for the Free Spins. That’s likely to be disappointing. 
  • Besides not recommending it for games with real deposits, we also do not recommend this slot for bonus hunters to fulfill the bonus requirements.
