Nature Pays Out in Exotic Butterfly Slot
Against a golden sunlit woodland backdrop, WMS Gaming’s slots title Exotic Butterfly presents solid red reels and a variety of whimsical symbols drawn from the world of butterflies. Each of the five reels has four windows, and there are 40 fixed paylines. So the layout is much simpler and less unconventional than many of the more unusual WMS titles like Lady of Egypt and Wild Shootout.
The Exotic Butterfly Wild is a bright Blue Butterfly, filling the usual substitution role, so it can form wins with any of the other symbols except the Scatter. It also wins 5, 25, 125 or 400 coins for matching Blue Butterflies starting on Reel 1 and numbering two, three, four or five of a kind on one payline.
During free spins rounds, any Blue Butterflies landing on Reel 5 expand left in a shower of golden butterflies shedding sparks, creating random numbers of Wild Orange Butterflies on the adjacent reels and more potential wins. Once an Orange Butterfly Wild has appeared in this way, it can appear in the same position on the reels during any of the remaining spins in the bonus round, without needing to be triggered first by a Blue Butterfly on Reel 5.
Bright, Colourful Icons Fit the Theme
The Exotic Butterfly symbols are bold, clear and colourful. The game uses the Poker icons 9 to A, along with a Flower, Caterpillar, a Ladybird and a blonde Nature-Girl surrounded by butterflies as the low-value and medium-value symbols. Five Nature-Girls on a payline wins a prize of 300 coins.
All the Exotic Butterfly symbols can appear in stacks of two or more, sometime filling all four windows on a Reel. Stacked Wilds in particular can trigger impressive prizes. Apart from the Wild, the Nature-Girl icon is the only symbol that pays a prize for two of a kind or better; all other symbols require three or more matches.
Chrysalis Scatter for Free Spins and Multipliers
A golden Butterfly Chrysalis serves as the Exotic Butterfly Scatter symbol. Three Chrysalises in any position on the reels activates 8 free spins; four Chrysalises trigger 12 free spins and also add a 10X multiplier to the total bet for the triggering spin, and five Scatters deliver 15 free spins plus a 100X multiplier.
As already mentioned, Blue Wilds shooting out transforming sparks from Reel 5, opening up the possibility of more Orange Wilds across the reels, enhance the wins in this phase.
Extra Random Wild Adds Extra Free Spins
Exotic Butterfly features a third Wild; a Blue-and-Gold Butterfly that can appear at random on Reel 5 only, during free spins. It also transforms a random number of the other icons on the same row into extra Wilds, and at the same time adds an extra free spin to the round.
Exotic Butterfly’s 40 paylines are fixed, but players can bet as little as 0.01 in the chosen currency per line, for a minimum total bet of 0.40. The maximum amount they can bet on a single spin is 100.00 in the same currency.
