In this new online slot from Thunderkick, we once again get to take part in an exciting Crystal Quest adventure. Although the previous adventures in both the Deep Jungle and the Arcane Tower were rewarding and resulted in lots of crystals, our adventurer has not had enough. Something that is truly understandable as the various assignments always came with exciting challenges, features and environments.
From the previously warm places, this time we have moved to a much colder place, namely the Frostlands. How our dear adventurer get all the tips on places that hold all these gems is not being mentioned. What we do know is that a large amount is available to pick up this time as well and that a large green Yeti guards these.
Crystal Quest: Frostlands is a slot from Thunderkick that has 6 reels, 4 rows and 4096 paylines. You can choose between making a Min.bet of 0.10 and a Max.bet of 100. The RTP is 96.16% and is around the average. It is a high volatility which can result in it taking longer before larger wins are obtained, but once you succeed in doing so, it can be really festive wins. Since you can succeed in getting a win of up to 15000X the bet. The size of all of these game details has been the same as in previous editions. Where most often the theme has been the big change and sometimes small changes in the form of the features.
The features that we can take advantage of are Avalanche, Multiplier, Wild symbol, Massive symbols and Bonus game. Let's find out what you can expect to see in this slot and then go through the different features that are available.
This slot series has a special game design, and just by seeing a symbol we understand that it is from the Crystal Quest series. We have hiked to the Frostlands and very quickly understood why the place is called so. The snow is laying white all over its surroundings and the cold bites hard. But the patient person can manage to find great treasures.
In this slot, a variety of symbols can land on the reels, where the lower paying symbols consist of gems in the colors blue, turquoise, green, yellow, orange and pink. The medium paying symbols consist of the mentioned crystals which in this case come in the colors blue, green and orange. Among these medium symbols, we also find the giant Yeti which doesn’t have an overly soothing facial expression.
As in the other editions of Crystal Quest, there are always a lot of gems and crystals, then a guard who in this case is the green Yeti. But the highest paying symbol is the Feral Commander, which is holding a large red crystal sword. The game's Wild symbol consists of a large W carved from crystals. To take part in the game's Bonus game, you need to land 3 scatter symbols. Where these scatter symbols consist of a treasure chest. Even if the environment is completely different, you feel at home in this slot as the design structure is the same.
In Crystal Quest: Frostlands we get to take part in a number of wonderful features, where we have Wild symbol, Avalanche, Multiplier, Massive symbols and Bonus game. Before we can tell you what the slot Bonus do, we need to break down the other essential parts as it contains.
The game's wild symbol can land on all reels except reel 1, where it helps to create more winning combinations by substituting for all other symbols. The only symbols it does not substitute for are the scatter symbols.
When you spin the reels and get a winning combination, the Avalanche feature is activated. What happens then is that all the symbols that were part of this winning combination will disappear from the reels and then new ones will fall from the top. If you succeed in creating additional winning combinations after new symbols have fallen, you will receive another Avalanche. Which then lasts as long as new wins are made.
Not only is it festive to see a lot of symbols rain down on the reels and then create more wins. Since another thing happens that can make the wins even bigger, as each Avalanche that happens results in the multiplier starting at 1X increasing by 1. This is then reset after the Avalanche ends in the Base game. But in the Bonus game, the multiplier will remain throughout its feature.
In this slot, it is the Massive symbols that can be really festive to watch. This is because at any time during both the Base game and the Bonus game, Massive symbols can land on the reels. It will be able to land in the sizes 2X2 and in 3X3 and when it falls down from the top, everything below it will be destroyed, which results in it ending up at the bottom. With its large sizes, wonderful winning combinations can be created. Something that can be good to point out is that neither the Wild symbol nor the Scatter symbol can become a Massive symbol.
Although the Base game is great, it is of course the Bonus game that we want to get to. You activate this feature by landing 3 or more scatter symbols. You will then receive different numbers of free spins depending on the number of scatters you landed. You get 12 free spins for the first 3 scatters and for every extra you had at the activation gives 3 extra free spins. Once inside the Bonus game, you can manage to get even more free spins, where you get 3 extra free spins by landing 2 scatter symbols and for each extra scatter you get 2 extra free spins.
As you can see, there can certainly be many free spins that you can take part in, which is really appreciated as the probability of Massive symbols landing increases significantly. As mentioned, you also get to take part in a multiplier, which is not reset between each spin. It is this combination of constantly increasing a multiplier with lots of free spins that really makes the Crystal Quest games great to play.
If you spin the reels and do not get a winning combination but have a Wild symbol on the reels, it will activate a Wild explosion. Where this Wild will explode and remove all horizontal and vertical symbols of it. If you hit a Massive symbol during this explosion, its entire symbol will also explode.
Thunderkick has really succeeded in creating slots in this serie that delivers every time. In general, in the film world, for example, the first edition is usually good, the second the best and then it just goes downhill. But even though this is a slot that is almost identical to its predecessor, there is a great joy in the fact that they continue to produce a lot of games from this adventure. Something that we have also seen in, for example, the Popwins series from Avatar UX and which is certainly appreciated there as well.
What makes this slot so entertaining to play is its wonderful variety of features where we get to take part in Massive symbols, Multipliers, Wild symbols, Avalanches and Bonus games. Where, unlike many other games that are entirely based on ending up in the Bonus game, Crystal Quest: Frostlands also provides a very entertaining gameplay within the Base game. The cartoon characters, the surroundings and the intense effects are something you really love. That there is also an opportunity to get a win of up to 15000X the bet gives the perfect touch to such a wonderful adventure like this.
If you have been following this game from the beginning, then this is certainly a sequel you have been waiting for. But whether you are new or experienced, it is a slot that definitely should be tested. Put on a warm winter jacket and a pair of snowshoes because an exciting adventure awaits in this winter landscape.
