The game takes place on a 4×6 reel grid with 4096 paylines. The combination of these adds up to a max payout of 15,000x your bet, which is average for slots of this type. The minimum bet you can place per spin is 0.10, while the maximum is 100. The developer rates the game’s volatility as high and specifies a Return to Player (RTP) of 96.16%. The game is developed to run on both desktop and mobile devices and supports Windows, Mac OS, iOS, and Android.
There are 7 low-value pay symbols and 4 high-value ones. Most of these are depicted as various gems of different colours and sizes, while the two most valuable symbols in the game are a club-wielding yeti and a feral commander. There are also two premium symbols available- a Wild one and a Scatter one. The Wild appears as a big letter W and can be used to substitute any pay symbol to help complete a matching set. As for the Scatter, that is a golden chest and is used to trigger the free spins bonus feature by landing three of these in a single spin.
The game has a lot of exciting features which will keep you engaged for hours. First off, there is the Avalanche feature which is a name given to cascading reels. As you complete matching sets, the pay symbols will disappear, and new ones will fall from above. If new winning groups align, the process will continue, and your wins will chain together for large combo payouts.
There is also a multiplier that is applied to your wins. This will increase as you combine more chain wins. Whenever an avalanche takes place, the multiplier that is applied to your win will increase by one. This can reach up to a whopping 1500. If your streak is broken, however, the multiplier will reset back to 1x.
Another feature are the so-called Massive Symbols. With this, all pay symbols in the game, except for the scatter and wild ones, have a chance to appear as larger versions of themselves, taking up 2×2 or 3×3 spaces. Whenever this occurs, the Massive Symbol will crush all symbols underneath it, and this can happen in both the base game and the bonus one.
Lastly, there is the bonus game feature which is activated by landing 2 or more Scatter symbols in one spin. Getting 2 of these symbols will award you 3 spins, with 2 more for each additional Scatter you get. Within this mode, the multiplier will not reset if you do not get a win on a spin, significantly increasing your chance to reach new heights. Additionally, Wild symbols will also explode if you don’t get a win and will destroy all pay symbols within the same reel and row. This will, in turn, trigger the avalanche feature and assure a payout.
The Bottom Line
All in all, Crystal Quest: Frostlands is a great new addition to an already popular and entertaining series of slots. It has a fun and engaging aesthetic and many different features. The endless multiplier and Avalanche feature will constantly keep you at the edge of your seat since the big jackpot will always be just around the corner.
