Neon Staxx from NetEnt: Slot Review - bright lights, simple gameplay, and huge popularity

GamingRevolution has reviewed one of NetEnt's all-time favourite games, Neon Staxx. The 5-reel and 3-row slot game shine with simplicity.

Ever wondered why so many players love NetEnt's Neon Staxx?

The banner, which runs along the reels, sure helps to make up players' minds. Prominently, it states that 'up to 80 000 Coins' can be won playing Neon Staxx. There is more to Neon Staxx than its 1980s theme.

Special Features

This slot game has 5 reels, 4 rows and 40 paylines. Sounds conventional, it is indeed. That's the beauty of all features of Neon Staxx. Often simplicity is quoted in regard to Neon Staxx. Players love that it neither requires prior knowledge nor high stakes. A favourite of mine in Neon Staxx are the free spin symbols. To receive free spins, players need to get three or more scatter symbols, anywhere on the reel, in any given spin. The number of free spins is determined by the number of scatter symbols a player receives. The highest amount of free spins received in one go is 20.

To many, this rather simple feature may sound like their least favourite feature. However, in these free spin rounds, some good wins can be made, to add to the already good drippings of small, yet repeated, wins.

Theme and Graphics

Upon starting the game, a purple and blue neon background awaits, the reels tilted stylishly and the tune reminiscent of an arcade. This slot game truly evokes old school feelings, combined with simplicity and the latest technology by NetEnt. It is understandable how this online game has managed to become an all-time favourite among regular and novice gamers alike.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

Neon Staxx by NetEnt is one of those games that hold relaxing qualities. Autoplay forces players to set a fixed number of spins, the maximum being 1000. This is great as it prevents all your casino funds being drained with an endless amount of spins, should you forget to stop the game. As with all slot games, the higher your stakes, the higher your potential winnings. Given that Neon Staxx pays small amounts, yet, there are good chances of winning, upping your game in this slot can turn out to be very profitable.

Our Verdict on Neon Staxx

To go back to the initial question. What's there not to love? NetEnt has managed to develop a game that does not 'try too hard'. Its simplicity, its theme with the fitting electronic tunes, creates an atmospheric game with winnings that can be high if you earn some free spins.
