Crystal Lotus is a game which mixes edge-of-your-seat bonus features with old-school casino appeal. If you're a fan of classic slots, you'll appreciate the simplicity of the gameplay nearly as much as the all-new Expanding Wild Re-Spin Feature which gives you extra chances to create wins.
The fun doesn't end there either as the ten-payline Crystal Lotus slot game by the maker of Fluffy Favourites and Shaman's Dream, Eyecon, pays both ways, from right to left and left to right, all for as little as 10p.
Our Verdict: Like many of the most recent online slots that Eyecon has released, Crystal Lotus takes a more innovative and unusual path than the software developer's earliest slots which tended to come with simple features such as free spins bonuses. However, the gameplay is a simple and effortless as ever, so new players should be able to enjoy the Crystal Lotus slot just as much as seasoned slots fans.
The introduction of the dual wild/scatter symbol helps to liven up the playing experience as this joint symbol doesn't just help to create winning combos through symbol substitution, but it also has the potential to unlock the Expanding Wild Re-Spin Feature.
Design: Crystal Lotus is a nature-themed slot that places you in a garden in the dead of night, and in front of you, the moon makes the blossoms radiate a magical light. What's more striking, however, is that there are two symbols other than the five flowers that you'd normally only see in classic slot games. The Bar and the 7 are also the most valuable symbols that you'll encounter while playing the Crystal Lotus slot.
The game is also surprising in that it accommodates wins in both directions. So, for example, you could get three green flowers on Reels 1, 2 and 3 or Reels 3, 4, and 5, and still, be paid the same cash prize.
The gentle electronic music that plays while the reels are in motion is almost trancelike, but if you prefer to play in silence, you can easily turn it off. There are a few other settings in the Crystal Lotus slot that you can alter as well such as the stake size and the number of paylines. There's even an Auto-Play option that allows you to play pretty much hands-free.
Wild Symbol: The pretty midnight-purple flower with a diamond in the middle is the wild and the scatter symbol in the Crystal Lotus slot game. It has the potential to trigger the Expanding Wild Re-Spin Feature, plus it can substitute for any other symbol when a winning combination is possible. However, the wild symbol can land on the second, third and fourth reels only.
Bonus Features: All wins that feature a wild/scatter symbol result in the Expanding Wild Re-Spin Feature. It turns the wild symbols into expanding wilds which cover entire reels to allow for more winning combinations before giving you a free re-spin. Crystal Lotus also gives you a maximum of three re-spins if you manage to collect more wild symbols while the feature is active.
