Mystic Staxx Slot (Red Tiger)

Mystic Staxx Slot (Red Tiger)Now that NetEnt has bought another great developer, Red Tiger, it is not a surprise that you will continue seeing a lot of Staxx type of slots machines. Mystic Staxx is one of those titles, a slot game that bears an Asian theme.

Game Set-Up

The slot has a big grid that offers just 40 fixed pay-lines, on its 8-reel design. For the features, I had the privilege to work with things like Free spins bonus, Stacked Wilds, Colossal Wilds, and Stacked Symbols.

Betting and Prizes

This highly volatile slot allows bets of between $0.10 and $20 per spin. However, as usual with a majority of Red Tiger slots, this game does not offer an impressive RTP as only 94.68%% is available.

I placed real money bets on this slot intending to win the top prize of 2000x, but unfortunately, it was not my lucky day.

Mystic Staxx Features

What surprises me most is the features that Red Tiger has given Mystic Staxx, as these are completely different from what we are used to seeing on other NetEnt's Staxx slots.

What I love most about Mystic Staxx is the fact that it's a less complicated slot, and especially since it doesn’t offer a bonus game. Instead, the developer has gone with is a request for the player to land some special Expand tiles, which in return boost the increasing symbols stacks on every reel.

Initially, the slot will offer symbols in stacks of 2 high. A 3x3 sized expanding symbol can land anywhere on the reels. Whenever these symbols become fully visible, it will lead to an increase in all symbol stacks by +1 symbol.

With each landing of an Expand symbol, the process is the same, and this goes on until you hit the maximum stack size of 20.

Once the stacks get to 20 symbols per reel, you will notice that the Expand symbols transform into 3x3 size wild icons.

The wild feature works as a substitute/replacement for the regular symbols, but not the expanding symbol.

Theme and Design

This slot offers some good symbols that include coins on strings, and some lanterns.

The design and overall workmanship are good, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Conclusion

Mystic Staxx is a slot that takes some time to figure out. It is not the most exciting game at first glance, but it does have its thrills when symbols align and fire off decent wins.

You might want to play Mystic Staxx for fun while waiting for other games to load up, but don't expect too much in the beginning since there are just 2 stacks of symbols.
