Here’s a slot from Novomatic that is a little bit different from other games you may have played. For starters, it has four reels, rather than the usual three of five that you will be used to. It features stacked and frozen wilds, pays both ways and a free games bonus feature that could see you playing with 300 free spins if it’s your lucky day. Now that has to get you wanting to learn more about ‘Crystal Odyssey.’ With its stacked wild and the chance to earn a re-spin, you might even be able to afford some crystals of your own.
This game has ten pay-lines on its four reels, I’m still not used to having to mention four reels. Those ten pay-lines are a fixed amount so the only decision you have to make is the level of your stake. Playing the game isn’t too dear at all with the minimum stake 0.40 and the maximum 100. That makes this slot ideal for those of you just wanting a bit of fun and others who are looking to make big profits. Simply gamble what you can afford to lose and enjoy playing this slot.
As you can imagine from the name of this slot, this is a game with a jewel theme. There are seven of them among the symbols and it’s the white diamond which is the best paying symbols here. Four of those (not three or five) on a pay-line will pay you 500x your total stake. The game has an attractive look to it with a star-filled background and the soundtrack is passable, though if you do play this slot for a fair while you may be reaching for the mute button.
The wild in ‘Crystal Odyssey’ Is the multi-coloured diamond which can substitute for other symbols to get you some wins. It doesn’t appear on every reel though, in fact just the fourth one. It can’t replace the scatter symbol but it does have other uses. It can at times be fully stacked on the fourth reel meaning all of that is wild and that can only help you in your chase for some winning combinations.
Now for some good news and bad news. Let’s get the bad news out of the way, first shall we? It’s a sad fact but sometimes a spin of the reels won’t produce a win even if a wild symbol makes an appearance. The good news is that in those circumstances, the wild symbol is held on the fourth reel and you get a free re-spin giving you a second chance at getting a win.
It’s an easy game to operate so no problems on that score. Make sure you take a glance through the paytable before playing this game for real. That way you will have tons of valuable information stored in your head. There’s details about the winning combinations and how the bonus game works. Have a few free games too allowing yourself to see just how everything works.
To get some free spins, you need to get three or four of the Crystal Odyssey logo anywhere on the reels. This gives you ten free spins if triggered by three and 20 if four come along. To increase your chances of getting some winning combinations, the stacked crystal wild is locked in the same position during the free spins.
Another bonus is that the wild can now substitute for the scatter symbol. That increases the chances of you being able to re-trigger the free spins and make even more profits. You can keep doing that up to a maximum of 300 free spins, imagine the damage you could do with that amount especially if those stacked wild symbols come along to help you.
Stacked wilds help win you some top prizes in this slot game. If that appeals to you, then also have a play of ‘Rainbow Riches Free Spins’ from Barcrest. That features a free spins round of course and stacked wilds can boost your account balance. If you love slot games that have diamond themes, then try another Barcrest slot, ‘Crown Jewels.’ That also has a free spins round with you don’t get any help from stacked wilds. As for games with just the four reels, have a go at ‘Pyramids of Egypt’ from Merkur though ‘Crystal Odyssey’ has much better features.
A fairly straightforward slot from Novomatic but one that can give its players some decent wins. The stacked wild, re-spin and free spins round can certainly get that account balance of yours climbing. It is all rather basic though and would be ideal for someone who hasn’t had a great deal of experience of playing slot games.
