It was acceptable in the 80s – NetEnt to launch new video slot inspired by retro arcade games


NetEnt Casinos is taking a whole new angle on video slots.

The company, which has offices in Sweden and Malta, is preparing to launch Neon Staxx – a retro slot inspired by in the 1980s.

The new game, which is due to be published on June 24, boasts free spins, scatter symbols and the “ultimate SuperStaxx” feature.

But the thing that really sets it apart, is the 80s arcade-style aspect of the screen. Inspired by classic coin-op games of the past such as Space Invaders and PacMan.

NetEnt Casinos editor Femke Stiger said: “The entire game is shown from a different angle as we are used to from a video slot.

“A nice touch if you ask me, because it really gives this video slot a different look, perfectly combined with bright neon colours, 3D symbols and again an innovative slot feature.

“Although futuristic at some points, the game is taking you back to the 80’s with a funky synthesiser soundtrack on the background.

“While graffiti has been common for millennia, modern graffiti culture is generally thought to have emerged in New York in the 70’s, together with hip hop music.

“This way of communicating has been part of the 80’s too, the reason why NetEnt’s talented software developers added some in the logo and symbols.”
