I’ve known some people who are absolutely obsessed with Dungeons & Dragons. One was in his 60s and he was always playing it rather than settling down in his slippers to watch old television shows. Well IGT have released some popular slot games that are linked to the game and ‘Dungeons & Dragons: Crystal Caverns’ is one of them. As you’ll read it’s easy to see why it has been so popular.
This is a five-reel game that has three rows of symbols and a total of 20 paylines. Now these paylines are fixed so there’s no having to decide just how many paylines to activate on each and every spin of the reels. Playing the game costs between £0.20 and £100.
The look of the game is really impressive. In the background to the reels we have a cave entrance and the reels themselves have a great looking Celtic design.
With a title like ‘Crystal Caverns’ you won’t be too surprised to discover that symbols include green, blue and purple crystals. Also we see The Elf Princess, Tordek and Bodock who will be familiar to players of the game. Also there’s a Dungeons & Dragons logo symbol.
The wild symbol can substitute for other symbols in order to get you some much appreciated winning combinations. It doesn’t substitute for the gold bonus symbol because if it did that’d make it really easy to activate the bonus feature, more of which in a moment.
Tumbling reels are always something to be pleased about. That’s because it can really work wonders for your account balance. During the game (both the base game and the free spins bonus round), each time you get a winning combination then there’s suddenly the chance of getting another one or even more.
The symbols that have just gotten you a win suddenly disappear. Now of course this leaves big hole in the reels so the symbols above the disappearing ones drop down to replace them. Then the reels are reassessed and hopefully the new look reels will have seen you get another win. If that is the case, then the winning symbols do a disappearing act and off you go again with the tumbling reels. This carries on until you don’t get a win.
You can set between ten and fifty automated spins in this game, handy if you want some time away from the screen.
Have a good look through the paytable and game rules to learn as much as you can about this game. Some free games will be a big help too before you enter the caverns with your real cash balance on the line.
Three of the bonus symbols on the first three reels will get you into the free spins bonus round. Initially there’s just six on offer but there’s the chance to get some more during the free spins if the bonus symbols turn up.
During the free spins there are some different symbols on the reel. This includes three scary monsters, four pieces of jewellery and the Dungeons & Dragons logo and the bonus logo symbol. Five of the bonus symbols get you six to 15 wins, four get you four to ten and three just two to four more free spins. The maximum number of free spins you can get are 300.
I mentioned the monsters, well they’re not quite as scary as they look because they behave as scatter symbols. Three or more of these anywhere on the reels get you a prize.
There’s lots to love about this game even if you can’t stand Dungeons & Dragons. The tumbling reels are always a welcome sight. They are virtually a free spin in all but name and can keep on getting you wins. The bonus round is also profitable with the chance to get more free spins and those profitable scatters. This is definitely recommended.
