Crystal Queen Slot by Quickspin Review
Playing Crystal Queen instantly reminded us of the movie Frozen by Disney. Produced by Quickspin, Crystal Queen is based on the HC Anderson Story about the snow queen. Well, well, well... That explains why all the characters in this slot were too familiar to us. For now, prepare yourselves for a trip down memory lane; we are in for a long ride down fairy tale city. Just like any other trips, we have to go through some formalities first. Crystal Queen slots features swooping reels, wild symbols, win multipliers and up to 6 rows. Best part of all: this game pays BOTH WAYS when all 6 rows are unlocked!
Slot Game Overview:
Crystal Queen slots features 6x5 reels with a staggering 56 paylines. Even from the start I was surprised with the unconventional 6x5 reel setup. I have to give it to the designers who designed this game. I mean, fitting that a 6x5 reel setup with 56 paylines must have been nearly impossible to fit onto a mobile screen.
With that being said, playing Crystal Queen on a phablet or a tablet is a better experience due to the larger screen. The details on the graphics are much more vivid on a larger resolution device contributing to a much better user experience overall. Playing on a mobile phone is fine, but don't be surprised if you have to squint a few times to have have a look at your balance or your total bet.
One of the most exciting features in Crystal Game is the fact that you can win both way. That just means one thing: Your chances of winning money are literally doubled! Other cool money making features that you can find in Crystal Queen include free spins, wild symbols, and swooping reels. When the bonus features are not triggered, you will come across spreading wild symbols on reels 1, 2 and 3, whereas during free spins, the wild symbols appear on reels 2, 3 and 4.
When you do hit winning combinations, the swooping reels feature will be activated and the current symbols will be replaced by new ones. On top of that, every swoop will trigger a new row and increase the win multiplier. In short, this game is nothing but a money making machine!
As expected, we did not encounter any glitches nor bugs whilst testing this game. The design of all the characters and the symbols almost feels like you were reading or watching the fairy tale The Snow Queen. Talk about going down memory lane!
If the only issue that we encountered so far is that everything is an absolute squeeze when this game is played on a mobile phone. It felt like everything was just squished so that it could be fit into the screen. More often than not, we found ourselves squinting when we could not read all the miniaturised words.
Fairy tale in a game
The best feature about this game is definitely the story and the theme behind this game. Apart from the amazing and smooth game play, it is actually the story and the characters in the game that separates this online slot from the others. The theme is based on an old fairy tale called The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen. This story centers on the struggle between all the good and evil gone through by 2 children, Gerda and Kai.
The addition of an amazing soundtrack also makes this game more dramatic and fun to play. At times, it makes you feel as if you yourself are helping the good defeat evil.
All in all, we think Crystal Queen is a solid game in all aspects. The theme and the story conveyed throughout the game will appeal to everyone of all ages. The win both ways and wild features also add a lot of excitement to the game. If anything, we wish we could play this game comfortably on a mobile phone as everything feels too squished and small on a low resolution device. Crystal Queen is available in all casinos that offer Quickspin games.
