Crystal Rift Slots

Outer space has always been the fascination of humanity, ever since we first gazed upon the twinkling stars in the night sky, and wished we could reach out to take them for ourselves.And while our societies evolved and our needs changed, the desire to stare up into the unknown and yearn to explore it never faded away. Crystal Rift taps into that fantasy, taking us to an asteroid far, far away from our lovely, blue planet. Stocked to the brim with valuable gemstones, the luckiest players will find themselves very rich after spending some time with this 5x3 slot. It offers gamblers 25 fixed paylines, and two special features: Bonus Falls, which is a fancy term for cascading reels, and Wild Grid that transforms symbols into Wilds under the right circumstances.

How to Play

The partnership with Microgaming seems to have paid off quite well for Rabcat, because their games look better with each consecutive release. The background image is stunning, showing the inside of a hollowed-out asteroid, with sunlight filtering in from the outside. The valuable gems embedded in the rocks have a very small, twinkling effect, which players might miss if they are not paying attention. We like the change to the UI, making it seem futuristic. Crystal Rift is played on a standard 5x3 playing field, where pays are granted by connecting three or more identical icons in adjacent positions, from left to right, following one of twenty-five active paylines. The gameplay is defined by the interaction between the title’s two bonuses, and it keeps gamblers invested because each win has the potential for a big jackpot.

Betting Options and Payout

Players can wager between $0.25 up to $50 per spin, and that is a decent betting spread for casual and mid-range gamblers. The slot has medium volatility, and an RTP of 96%, seating it at a comfortable average compared to other games by the same developer. The maximum win is worth 1,000x your total stake.

Symbols and Extra Features

Symbols include all sorts of colourful, valuable space rocks. Naturally, some are worth more than others, but all of them are equally valuable as contributors to creating additional Wilds thanks to the special features. When a winning combination is formed, all pays are granted, and the icons which were part of that win disappear. The remaining symbols fall in their old position, filling up the empty spaces, while brand new icons appear on top of the reels to complete a full 5x3 playing field. This allows for several scores to be won for the price of a single spin. After three consecutive wins using the cascading reels system, the highlighted positions on the reels are transformed into Wilds. Provided the wins keep coming, these positions will keep creating additional Wilds. After each regular spin, the highlighted positions change.

Our Verdict

Crystal Rift is proof that awesome titles do not need a lot of bonuses to stand out. So long as developers have a cohesive idea in mind and balance the slot accordingly, it will be perfectly enjoyable. With superb visuals and great sound design, we had a blast playing the Rabcat’s release.
