For those of us who saw Disney's
and loved it, Quickspin has developed an online slot, Crystal Queen, inspired by the Disney animated feature.
No prizes for guessing, then, that snow is the major motif from a visual point of view. Not that we are complaining. The developers have created a rich graphic template where the elements stand out in colourful contrast against the snow.
The backdrop features a winter morning where everything is covered in white, with a beam of yellow light pulsing through the landscape. The reels feature the regular low value symbols from 10s to aces. You then have various characters that resemble the cast of
- the Read Headed Girl, the Crystal Queen, the blonde boy, and Kristoff and his trusted companion Sven.
To heighten the visual theme, the first three rows are covered in ice crystals. You may think this to be just a gimmick, but it forms an integral part of the game play.
Now, the theme of the slot may be inspired from a famous animated film, but the game play does have some original bits to it. This is in the form of the first three frozen rows, which are unlocked, or rather un-frozen, one by one. As these special rows come into play, you stand to win more prizes and higher rewards.
The Swooping Reels feature is the one you need to get the first three rows into play. The feature is triggered once the first row is unblocked. You then have to re-trigger it a second and third time to unleash the win potential of Crystal Queen. The developers have made it interesting by awarding the payer the first feature almost instantly. Kind of like a welcome bonus. Things then get tricky, as the second and third instalment of Swooping Reels are not so easy to come by. But they are worth the wait when they do. After all three rows are unfrozen you receive a 5x multiplier on all your wins.
The free spins of Crystal Queen pack a bit more punch in terms of player rewards. One reason for this is that it will unlock all the reels and pay lines, even if the first two or the first three are frozen. This allows for more win combinations and more prizes to fall into your lap. All you have to do to is land three gem symbols anywhere on the reels.
This online slot from Quickspin is easy to start, with bets allowed as low as 0.50. If you are really feeling lucky then you can bet as much as 100. The amount can be reduced or increased to your liking. The good news is that with a single bet, you could win the jackpot that stands at a neat 6,250.
Crystal Queen is one of the more interesting slots out there that provides players with an innovative game experience. Coupled with the standout graphics, this slot will keep you hooked.
