The Crystal Clans slots game can be found at casinos offering iSoftBet software. iSoftBet are one of the newer casino software providers on the market but they have managed to tie down some impressive branded slots game contracts. As a standard iSoftBet do not publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within the game help file or paytables. However as part of the UKGC license requirements many UKGC licensed operators have started to publish this information for all of their games. As such we can tell from Trada’s site that the House Edge of Crystal Clans is 4.78% when playing maximum paylines/coins.
Crystal Clans is a 5 reel slots game and each reel is 3 symbols high. The game uses 50 paylines, playing from left to right.
Wild – The Wild symbol is the “W”, which can substitute for all symbols other than the Free Spins and Multipliers. Wilds are also one of the most valuable symbols in the game, with 5 as part of a winning payline worth 20,000 coins.
Wild Multipliers – Along with normal Wild symbols there are also Wild Multiplier symbols that will multiply the bet by the number on the symbol if part of a winning payline. There is a x2, x3, x5 and a x10 Multiplier and all will substitute for all symbols other than Scatters.
Scatters– The “Red Crystal” symbol triggers the game’s Free Spins. Any 2, 3, 4 or 5 “Red Crystals” on consecutive reels will earn Free Spins. 2 will earn you 10-15 Free Spins; 3 will earn you 16-25 Free Spins; 4 will earn you 26-35 Free Spins and 5 will earn you 36-50 Free Spins.
Free Spins – When you have triggered the Free Spins by landing 3 or more “Red Crystal” symbols, if a Wild Multiplier appeared on the trigger spin then all wins during your Free Spins will be multiplied by that number. You can gain additional free spins during the feature if you can reveal 2 or more “Red Crystal” symbols on consecutive reels. 2 will earn you x2 the number of free spins remaining; 3 will earn you x3 the number of free spins remaining; 4 will earn you x5 the number of free spins remaining and 5 will earn you x10 the number of free spins remaining. The most re-spins you can earn in total is 100.
Crystal Clans is a great looking slots game, with well-designed symbols and a detailed background, with the whole thing looking like a computer game. The theme is rooted in fantasy, with dwarves, elves, wizards and princesses all making up the main symbols. There a Wilds and Wild Multipliers and a decent Free Spins feature to keep you engaged. The Free Spins can also re-spin and the various multiplier options add some extra spice to the game. I am disappointed that there is no bonus game as I feel that this theme lends itself perfectly to an immersive bonus feature. The house edge is higher than we would want it to be. Making Crystal Clans a great looking game, with some decent features and slightly poor value for money.
