As a standard Quickspin do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within their game help file. For a provider that are not currently licensed within the UK market and therefore are under no obligation to publish these figures this is a significantly progressive move. The House Edge of Crystal Queen is 3.84%.
Winter has come and the Crystal Queen awaits.
Crystal Queen is a 5 reel game with 20 paylines and you can only bet 1 coin on each payline.
The ‘Wild’ symbol is Wild and only appears on reels 4 and 5 in the base game. The ‘Arrow Wild’ symbol is also Wild, only appears on reels 1, 2 and 3 in the base game and will turn up to 5 symbols directly surrounding the Arrow Wild symbol into Wild symbols.
There are two bonus features when playing Crystal Queen. The first bonus feature is active on every spin. When you initially spin the reels you start with 3 rows of symbols. If you receive a winning combination, after you’ve been paid, the symbols that contribute to the win will explode allowing the symbols above to drop down. A 4th row of symbols then opens up at the top of the reels and symbols drop in to fill the spaces and new row. This process repeats until no new wins are created. On the second consecutive win a 5th row of symbols is opened up and on the third consecutive win a 6th row of symbols is opened up. With all 6 rows of symbols in play there are a total of 56 paylines. The multiplier applied to wins starts at 1 on the initial spin then increases to 2 for the second consecutive win, 3 for the third consecutive win and 5 for every win after that.
The second bonus feature is activated when you receive 3 or more of the ‘Red Gem’ scatter anywhere on the active play area. When this happens you will be awarded 10 complimentary spins. During the complimentary spins all 6 rows of symbols are active, wins pay both left to right and right to left and the Arrow Wild symbol appears on reels 2, 3 and 4.
Crystal Queen offers some great features that are unique and original in their form and function and offers all of this at a House Edge that’s well below industry standard. This game is a defining release for a smaller software provider, showing that they can compete at the top levels of the industry.
