The intrepid Gemma is returning for another quest to find precious gems on the slot from Thunderkick. Crystal Quest: Frostlands is taking you on a highly volatile reel journey across six icy reels with wild substitutions, cascading symbols, multipliers, supersized pay symbols, a Wild Explosion feature and a free spins round that can lead to wins of up to 15,000 times your bet.
Crystal Quest: Frostlands is a cascading video slot with six reels, four rows and 4,096 ways to win. Pays are awarded for two to six matching symbols landing on adjacent reels from left to right only. You can enter the icy fantasy world on desktop, tablet or mobile from 0.10 to 100 credits per spin. The game has high volatility with an RTP of 96.16%.
A frozen fantasy forest scene is opening up when you load the game with snow-covered first in the background and a ice cub ladder to the side that will display the current win multiplier. The frameless reels are filled solid ice cubes that will shatter in a dramatic fashion on winning avalanches.
The pay symbols start at the low end with a range of smaller gems in blue, turquoise, green, yellow, orange and pink colours, awarding 0.5x to 0.7x your bet for a single six of a kind. They are followed by more elaborate crystals in blue, green and orange colours as well as Yeti and the Feral Commander. Hit six across the reels to win 1x to 5x your stake. A ‘W’ on a blue icon is the wild symbol, appearing on reels two to six only and substituting for all regular pay symbols while a treasure chest acts as the scatter.
Crystal Quest: Frostlands Slot Features
Thunderkick continues to expand its Crystal Quest franchise with the thrid title being released in a period of just six months. Odds are that there will more coming soon, maybe amounting to the same number as the Beat the Beast series. While they are not very different from each other, they all have distinct features or modifiers to clearly separate them. Let’s take a look at what you can expect on this occasion.
At the core is still the tumbling reels mechanic which Thunderkick calls Avalanche feature. Every spin sequence starts with a set of 24 symbols avalanching onto the six reels and any initial winning combo is removed to make place for new symbols to drop into place. This continues as long as a new win occurs after an avalanche.
The progressive multiplier is also returning, providing the potential to score mega wins at any time. Every winning avalanche in a spin sequence will increase the multiplier by x1 and that indefinitely until no new wins occur. In the base game, the multiplier is reset to x1 at the end of each round.
And there is more. Massive Symbols in 2×2 or 3×3 sizes can appear on any spin in the base game and bonus feature. They will always land at the bottom on an initial avalanche but should they appear later in a spin sequence, they will crush all symbols underneath them until they hit the bottom. They will never land on top of each other or wild and scatter symbols.
Having three scatters in view by the time a spin sequence concludes will trigger 12 Free Spins with any further adding +3 free spins to the tally. During the feature, two scatters will award +3 extra free spins and any additional another +2 spins, no limits. Two twists will have again a significant impact on your potential winnings from the round.
First, the progressive win multiplier does not reset between free spins. Instead, the accrued multiplier on the triggering spin will be transferred to the bonus round and will keep growing by x1 after each winning avalanche. There is no limit to how high a win multiplier can go.
Secondly, having a wild on the reels without any win occurring will trigger the Wild Explosion feature. All wilds in view will explode and remove all symbols except scatters horizontally in their row as well as vertically on their reel to allow for new symbols to drop into place for another chance to hit a winning combo. Any Massive Symbols in their way will crush and will be removed completely, creating more space for new symbols to drop in. The feature ends when you run out of spins or hit the maximum win cap of 15,000x your bet.
Crystal Quest: Frostlands is sailing very close to Crystal Quest: Arcane Tower with only one apparent difference. The Linked Reels mechanic has been replaced with Massive Symbols, the rest is virtually identical. Although, the symbol payouts are lower due to the new modifier as it can lead to substantial multi-way wins when two matching 3×3 symbols land next to each other.
