Crystal Forest Online Slot
Crystal Forest is a slot by WMS Gaming that takes place in a mystical forest. This slot has a unique theme that sets it apart from other games. It is a very simple to play slot with one feature, the cascading reels, that is the key to the free spins bonus game. There are up to 50 free spins to be won, that will be accompanied by 8 winning combinations in a row.
The animations that accompany the cascading reels are really satisfying, especially when the cascades trigger multiple times.
Crystal Forest online slot is set up with 25 paylines. The paylines are arranged across 5 reels. With regards to wagering, the minimum required wager is 0.01 per payline for a total of 0.25 per spin. With a 96% Return to Player, you may be tempted to raise the stakes to the in game limit of 125 per spin.
The Cascading Reels Feature
Crystal is of course a fragile material that can shatter easily. The fragility of crystal is played to full effect in Crystal Forest online slot. Winning combinations are formed whenever at least 3 matching symbols show up on one of your active paylines.
These symbols that form the winning combination will shatter and disappear. As they do, the symbols above where the combination was will suddenly fall down and take up the empty spaces left. The reels are revaluated and if another combination was formed by the collapsing symbols then the feature will retrigger.
Getting as many of these chains in a row is the key to unlocking further bonuses in Crystal Forest slot.
The Free Spins Bonus Feature
Whenever the cascading chains mentioned above occur, you will notice that a meter at the side of the play screen will slowly fill up, but then deplete if no more chains are formed. You need to fill at least 4 of the crystals on the meter to trigger the Crystal Forest free spin feature.
In other words, whenever 4 cascading reel wins trigger consecutively, you will be awarded with free spins. 7 are awarded at first but the bigger your win chains are, the more are awarded. Crystal Forest slot will award up to 50 free spins. This is achieved by 8 or more consecutive cascades.
As with many WMS free spins features, more free spins are warded if the triggering requirements are met. The free spins take place on a different reel set but the pay outs of the reel symbols remain the same. The bet per line and amount of active paylines will remain fixed during this feature.
The Wild And Reel Symbols
Crystal Forest has a wild symbol represented by what appears to be a half tree, half gnome creature. This is a standard substitute symbols. Since there are no bonus triggering symbols, this wild will substitute for any and all symbols.
The lower value symbols in this slot feature a candle, a toadstool, a frog and some snowflakes. The high value symbols feature a range of mythical creatures. These include a dragon, a unicorn and a fairy.
