Crystal Sun is Play’n GO’s answer to NetEnt’s Starburst. Due to its low volatility nature, Starburst is often among the selected games for the free spins bonuses.
As for the Crystal Sun, it is a 5-reel, 10-payline title that pays both ways and accepts bets in the range 0.10- £100 per spin. Instead of star symbols, we get 5 planets of different colours, as well as diamonds and lucky 7’s. The star is the wild that performs the standard substitution duties of a wild. There is no scatter. The gameplay is centred around the trigger of the re-spin feature.
When you land wilds on the middle reels, they expand to fully cover that reel and you get a re-spin. The reel with the expanded wild remains locked in place. If you land another wild during the re-spin, you get another re-spin, and an expanding wild on a second reel. If you land yet another wild, you get a third reel with an expanding wild. You can get up to 3 reels with expanding wilds and a multiplier of up to x9.
Overall, the Crystal Sun is a basic slot, but it has some twists that make it worth your while. Starburst is an iconic slot, it was released in the distant 2012. From today’s perspective, the Crystal Sun can be defined as a visually improved version of Starburst. The paytable is also more generous. If you have ever wanted the Starburst to have better winning opportunities, you will fall for the Crystal Sun.
