Butterflies – A Refreshing Nature-Themed Online Slot
Butterflies is a 5-reel online slot with 20 non-fixed paylines from NextGen Gaming. This is a simple game of matching one-of-a-kind symbols in any activated payline, suitable to those still trying to learn the mechanics of slot gaming.
A Large Butterfly and a Small Butterfly represent the highest-paying symbols of the game. The symbols can be regarded as special because unlike in other conventional slot games, it only takes two of those particular icons to complete a payline win. The Large Butterfly pays the most, at 7,000 coins for every five-of-a-kind payline win. The Small Butterfly pays the second highest 5-of-a-kind reward, at 3,000 coins.
New slot players will be able to understand the significance of the amount staked per payline; of how the corresponding payout value is determined by multiplying the coin rewards with the amount of bet per payline. The Butterflies online slot offers from 0.01 up to 2.00 as amounts of bets to place per payline.
NextGen Gaming's Butterflies online slot does not have a bonus game or free-spins round to offer its players. Still, the reels and the Wild symbol have a special attribute called the “Butterfly Feature.”
The Butterflies Online Slot “Butterfly Feature”
The Butterfly Feature is a refreshing presentation of a fully developed butterfly emerging out of its larva. The Larva by the way is the Wild Symbol of the game. The completion of the caterpillar's metamorphosis could bring additional rewards because the new butterfly will fly from one icon to another. In so doing, it randomly chooses one or more regular icons to transform as Extra Larva Wild Symbols.
A newbie slot player will get to understand that the more Wild Symbols there are across the reels, the greater the chances of forming multiple payline wins and/or of forming the highest same-symbol combination in an active payline.
The Butterflies Larva Wild Symbol
The Larva Wild appears only in Reel 1. Taking into consideration a Wild Symbol's function of substituting for regular icons to complete a payline match, the first reel is an ideal position for a Wild Symbol. This is because in a standard slot game like Butterflies, only payline combinations starting from the first reel, are counted as payline wins.
The Butterflies Flower Scatter Symbol
Although this NextGen Gaming slot creation does not have a free-spins round, it offers Scatter Pays. The Flower is the Scatter Symbol that in other slot games could trigger the launch of a Free-Spins Game. However, the Butterflies Flower Scatter only grants Scatter Pays of 2, 5, 20 or 100 coins for every two, up to five Flower Symbols scattered across the reels regardless of their location.
Unlike Wild Symbol combos that pay based on the amount staked per payline, Scatter Pays are multiplied by the total bet per spin (coin value x number of paylines activated).
