Combining gemstones and flowers in an old school lay out is always going to be a winning slot. People do tend to want more from their slots these days, but sometimes less is more. With the Crystal Lotus slot from Eyecon this is definitely the case and we are loving it. But let us tell you more, so you can decide if this is the right game for you!
Crystal Lotus is a 5-reel, 10 pay line slot offering players a great RTP of 96.5%. Keeping things as simple as they can, Eyecon developed a basic looking slot which focuses more on the symbols than what is going on around them. The Crystal Lotus logo sits at the top of the reels which spin against a purple and blue background. Even the music accompanying the game is nice and chill, lending an overall relaxing feel to the whole game.
Bet Amounts – Betting begins at 1p per line in play and leads up to £1.25 per line in play. Ultimately this means that spins can cost from 1p per spin with just 1 line active, up to £12.50 per spin with all lines active. Click on the coin icon below the spin button to change your active pay lines and the cost per line in play. Use the sliders on each section until you are happy with your bet amount.
Wild Symbol – Your wild symbol is a deep blue colour lotus flower gem and it will appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 only. It will however substitute for all other symbols in the game and it plays a pivotal role in triggering the one and only feature in Crystal Lotus.
Scatter Symbols – There is no scatter symbol in Crystal Lotus, because the developers choose to trigger the feature instead with the wild symbol. The fact that you have no active scatter in no way effects gameplay, in fact due to the way it is set up it runs much smoother this way.
Other Symbols – All of the symbols are a mixture of flowery looking gems, retro bars and 7’s. Higher value symbols are the bar, 7 and sunflower type gem, with lower values being the blue, pink, green and purple flower gems.
Expanding Wild Feature – This feature triggers when you land 1 or more blue lotus wild symbols on reels 2, 3 and/or 4. The lotus symbol will now expand to cover the whole reel it has landed on and the wins are calculated. That reel is now held in place whilst the rest respin, if another lotus symbol lands then the whole process will be repeated. You can retrigger the expanding wild feature up to 3 times in one go. The respin will end after the 3 respins or if no more lotus symbols land, whichever comes first.
Despite only having one feature Crystal Lotus has swiftly become a favourite game of ours. With its overly simplistic design and relaxing soundtrack, the game is super easy to play. The addition of both ways wins to the reels is a great choice by the game designers, Eyecon. This means wins can be paid from left to right and vice versa. Because it only has ten pay lines, this ultimately doubles your chances of winning and that’s always a bonus in our eyes. The expanding wild feature adds a little something extra to what could have been a boring game. But the fact you can trigger more than one reel at a time is another great design choice. One we think that will keep people coming back to Crystal Lotus time and again.
