Released: September, 2018
Gamers are welcomed to a fantasy world ruled by the powerful and righteous King and his lovely Queen. The power of crystals will really be revealed in Crystal Clans, a five-reel video slot that offers 50 fixed paylines. Set in front of a breath-taking crystal cave, the 2018 release will take you on a fantastic adventure, where you will be required to gather Power Crystals to trigger the Free Spins feature and multiplier Wilds to boost your winnings.
The iSoftBet title is visually impressive, boasting state-of-the-art graphics and a fairy-like soundtrack. The reel grid, however, is rather standard, with 5 reels, 3 rows and 50 paylines that pay left to right, starting from the leftmost reel. Playable from $0.50 per spin, the Crystal Clans video slot offers the Free Spins feature with up to 100 free spins available and four types of multiplier Wilds (apart from the regular Wild), which can add 2x, 3x, 5x and 10x multipliers to all wins. If you are lucky enough to land a multiplier Wild on the same spin that you trigger the Free Spins feature, all wins during freebies will be multiplied by the landed multiplier Wild.
Now, it is time to meet the members of the most powerful crystal clan that rules this fantasy kingdom. The King rules with a generous heart and offers the most coins for five of a kind. His lovely wife, the Queen, is also there and also pays generously to her loyal subjects. Every King needs a Wizard by his side, especially if he needs to tame the wild power of the crystals. The Wizard that appears on the reels might remind you of Arthur’s Merlin.
As for the Sorceress, we first thought that Little Red Riding Hood made a wrong turn on her way to grandma’s house, since the powerful Sorceress resembles the cute girl from the famous tale, but don’t get fooled by her pretty look. And, what would a fantasy kingdom be without an Elf? Standard 9-A playing cards are used for low-value symbols. The red Power Crystal is the most important element gamers should obtain, because it will help them trigger the Free Spins feature. The green regular Wild will substitute for all symbols but the Scatter, while there are four multiplier Wilds that may add 2x, 3x, 5x and 10x multipliers when part of a winning combination.
If you want to survive in this fantasy kingdom and make a little money along the way, you will have to abide a few simple rules. The 2018 release features five reels, three rows and benefits from 50 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, starting from the leftmost reel. Three of a kind is the minimum for landing payouts, so land at least three matching symbols if you want to start winning.
Betting starts at $0.50 per spin and can go all the way up to $500, which is a pretty wide betting range. To set the desired bet, gamers will have to set the coin value somewhere between $0.01 and $1 and also set the bet level (1-10). Spinners can spin the reels of the 2018 release by themselves, but if they get tired of hitting the Spin button, they can always go to Autoplay and set the desired number of automatic spins, sit back and enjoy the beauties of the mysterious crystal cave.
Crystal Clans offers only one special feature, in the form of free spins. To trigger the Free Spins feature, you are required to land at least two Power Crystal Scatters on adjacent reels, starting from the leftmost reel. Two Scatters will get you 10-15 free spins, three Scatters award 16-25 freebies, four Scatters will result in 26-35 free spins, while five Scatters can reward you with 36-50 free spins. If the triggering spin contains a multiplier Wild, all wins in the feature will be multiplied by a multiplying Wild in question. It is possible to retrigger the feature by landing 2, 3, 4 or 5 extra Scatters on adjacent reels, starting from reel 1 and you can get 2x, 3x, 5x or 10x the remaining free spins. The total number of freebies you might trigger is set at 100.
We mentioned earlier that the King has a gentle heart and can be quite rewarding, which is probably why he is so loved by his loyal followers. Get five Kings on a payline and you will get as many as 2,000 coins. Fill all the cells with Kings and walk away with 100,000 coins! Include the multiplier Wild and pocket a mind-blowing win. The Queen will get you 1,000 coins for the maximum combination. Other symbols are not that generous. Trigger the Free Spins feature with a multiplier and every win will be a good one. Crystal Clans’ RTP is 96%.
Even though the 2018 release offers only one additional feature, we can really say that Crystal Clans is a rather exciting video slot that can offer hefty payouts to gamers. The central attraction of the iSoftBet title is, of course, the Free Spins feature and, if you are lucky enough, you can trigger up to 100 freebies with a multiplier that can go all the way up to 10x and will be applied on all wins. Unfortunately it is not that easy to trigger the feature, but patience is a virtue and you can always benefit from multiplier Wilds during base game, while you wait for the free spins to start.
