Enter an ancient cavern on a hunt for valuable gems in Crystal Falls MultiMax from Bulletproof Games, powered by Yggdrasil Gaming. Combining cascading wins with a Cascade+ free spins trail, Bulletproof Games also present Encore mode, boosting your chances of a free spins round with a special guest mechanic; Yggdrassil’s MultiMax, shattering wins of up to 4106 times your bet.
Crystal Falls Multimax is a 5×3 cascading reels slot with 20 fixed pay lines. Wins are paid from left to right for matching two or three symbols or more, according to the paytable. A trip to Crystal Falls costs between 0.20 credits to 100 credits per spin. Choosing Encore will increase the stake by 50%, improving your chances of free spins. Crystal Falls MultiMax has a hit frequency of roughly 1 in 4 spins, med-high volatility, an RTP of 95% and a bonus buy for 100x your bet.
An otherworldly cavern provides the setting for Crystal Falls MultiMax, at night for the base game, then casting alien daylight for the free spins round. The trail climbs up a strange rocky outcrop and symbols pop, shatter and electrify the trail with sounds reminiscent of 80’s arcades played to an ambient soundtrack.
The pay symbols of different shaped crystals start at the low end singularly in blue, purple, green, red and orange, awarding up to 10x your bet for five of a kind. Groups of larger crystals come next in blue and purple, yellow and green, and orange and red, paying up to 20x for five of a kind. The Crystal Falls symbol awards 25x your bet for five of a kind, as does the star-shaped wild, which also substitutes for all symbols.
Crystal Falls Multimax Slot Features
At face value, Crystal Falls MultiMax looks like a standard cascading reels slot. Crystals shatter allowing others to tumble down for a possible sequence. Taking a closer look reveals Cascade+, Encore and MultiMax free spins. These bring an interesting combination of mechanics and features to be explored.
The trail in view on the left-hand side winds eight steps with four needed to win free spins. With Cascade+ the higher you climb the trail the more free spins are awarded. Reaching one of the last five steps awards 7, 10, 12, 18 or the maximum of 25 free spins.
Betting with Encore gives a respin when a spin sequence ends with progress on the free spins trail, creating a chance to continue. You may also be given a subsequent respin if you move further along the trail. Using Encore more than doubles the hit frequency into free spins.
During the MultiMax free spins round, each reel carries a multiplying value above, starting at x1. When a wild rests on a reel, it increases the tally by x1. Wins are then multiplied by the product of the reels they span. For example, a single win across a payline will multiply by the value on reel one; that winning amount then multiplies by the value on reel 2 and that amount by reel 3’s multiplier, and so on. The MultiMax win multipliers hold for the entire duration of the bonus, elevating single small wins into epic ones, as seen before on MultiFly.
The screenshot above shows the MultiMax mechanic in action. The three symbol win along the payline has been multiplied by x2 on the first reel then x3 on the third and is about to have the x4 multiplier to finish the product. Should the win have carried another symbol or two the last two reels would have applied their values.
The Cascade+ free spins trail also features during MultiMax free spins. This time the trail requires 3 steps of a sequence to retrigger 2 free spins. Climbing further will grant 7, 10, 12, 18 or 25 additional free spins.
You can also bonus buy on Crystal Falls MultiMax for 100 times your stake, with a difference. Starting on the ten free spins location of the trail, the reels spin before the feature in Encore fashion, affording a chance for more cascading wins and climbing for more spins.
When considering Crystal Falls MultiMax, it is hard not to draw comparisons with MultiFly and while this may not have the same visual appeal, a theme with gemstones can only carry so far. Crystal Falls MultiMax still looks good but the real gem is in the gameplay. Encore may appeal due to a greatly increased hit rate into the free spins feature, particularly for UK players unable to bonus buy; which for the rest of the world offers a chance to move further along the trail instead of a fixed amount. Overall, a slot with a fair hit rate and great mechanics, although the RTP and win potential is a touch on the low side for GMBLRS tastes.
