Mine for Moolah in New Game Halloween Crystals!
A gnome’s work is never done. You’re either standing in someone’s garden getting baked by the sun, being kidnapped by the local drunkards out on a bender, or you’re deep in the bowels of the earth mining your little heart out.
And it’s not like you even catch a break on Halloween. Oh, no. It’s all dig-dig-dig for those precious gemstones.
Welcome to Halloween Crystals slot, where there’s no rest for the short of stature.
Heigh-ho, heigh-ho, it’s off to work we go
This latest game from Belatra takes us underground to a cave filled with gravestones, flitting bats, and a pumpkin upon which our diminutive miner is perched. His job is to uncover crystals that are trapped in a huge spider’s web. Good thing then that he’s got arms like Arnold Schwarzenegger!
Coming to us on a 6×5-reel grid, this game uses a cascading feature. All of the identical symbols that land then disappear, allowing more symbols to fill their spots (allowing for more opportunities to win).
If you manage to land 4 pumpkin Scatters at the same time, you’ll be rewarded with 10 Free Spins. Once in this bonus round, you’ll get an additional 5 Free Spins if you land extra Scatters. There is a maximum amount you can nab, but it’s 300, which isn’t too shabby!
Come to the end of the bonus game, your winning total gets multiplied by the number of multipliers of the reels.
Then there’s this thing called the CraftBonus. This gives you the chance to get into the bonus game whenever you want, and you’ll also get to choose whichever variation of the bonus drop you want! The amount you’ll have to cough up depends on the bet of the main game. But it will be money well spent; the more expensive the option you go for, the higher the probability that you’ll land the symbols you’re after.
Then there’s the Risk game. After each win, you’ll get a chance to increase your booty. It’s the usual fare – guess the card suit or the card color.
Lastly, you’ll also see the Wheel of Fortune feature, which is a Belatra thing. Accumulate jackpot points whenever you make a bet in the main game, and once the indicator is full, you’ll see 2 Jackpot Wheels. You can spin both of them for a guaranteed prize.
Uncover hidden crystals for epic wins!
Halloween Crystals slot comes to us off the back of Crystal Diggers slot, where we met our intrepid miner for the first time.
The bet limit for this game is a rather impressive €0.20 – €100. The RTP is less so, at 94.23%, and the volatility is medium/high. So in other words, you’ll have to work almost as hard as our little digger to land that sizable €200,000 top prize.
The graphics are well rendered, but the visual appeal doesn’t do much to offset the fact that it does take a long time to land a feature. As such, this wouldn’t be a game suited to players who like the action, and who have a hankering for features to keep them entertained.
