If you aren’t particularly tech savvy, you might not be paying attention to the rapid advancement that VR technology has made in mainstream gaming. It still has hurdles to jump over, but it will revolutionise how we see things forever. Us? We want a headset to see what NetEnt would do with this game’s style if it had to be done in VR.
The Neon Staxx slot machine offers a 5x4 playing field with 40 fixed paylines, and, much as the name implies, there’s a whole lot of symbol stacking when it comes to this title’s features, as well as the familiar embrace of a free spins bonus.
The user interface and graphics are really top notch here, well above even NetEnt’s impressive standard. Apart from the bottom bar, everything else is portrayed with a fitting amount of neon, and the slant of the reels makes it look like you’re leaning forward and looking at them from an angle rather than them just being a flat surface on which the symbols are portrayed, hence our rather vocal desire to see slots take to the virtual reality sector. For now, though, we’ll just have to settle for –watching- Tron instead of living it out, unfortunately!
But even in this far-away, digital world, there’s no escaping poker card symbols. J, Q, K and A are present and certainly drawn up to fit with the theme, but they really stand out like a sore thumb when you compare them to the unique icons such as vipers, hawks, panthers and lions, all drawn up in this odd pixelated style, but without the actual pixilation in place, making them an awesome logo if it weren’t for the oversaturation of colouring all over them, thanks to the theme of the game being neon.
And the second theme is stacks, and there are a lot of those. The value of the SuperStaxx special feature needs no explaining. A random symbol starts appearing stacked on the reels, which then start filling the playing field reel after reel.
You also have free spins available for a more down to earth bonus, which you win by collecting three, four or five Scatters, which rewards ten, fifteen and twenty free spins, respectively.
The SuperStaxx bonus is also available to be activated during the extra turns, and it brings the additional bonus that only the higher paying, unique symbols or the Wild can be randomly chosen if the SuperStaxx feature triggers to begin with.
Neither of these bonuses are particularly unique, but they fit nicely with the rest of the game. With this sort of pseudo-Tron look, including as much of those cool, colourful symbols as possible was a good call on NetEnt’s part, and we can’t deny the rush you feel when they start stacking one after the other. The fact the SuperStaxx also occurs during normal gameplay is a big plus from us, as it breaks up the monotony you usually see.
There really isn’t an aspect of Neon Staxx we didn’t like. If you enjoy slots with a medium to high volatility, a Tron-like look, kickass synth music and a lot of stacked symbols, you owe it to yourself to give it a try. The RTP for this game is 96.9%.
