Crystal Quest: Arcane Tower
Crystal Quest: Arcane Tower is a 6-reel, 4,069 ways to win slot developed by Thunderkick. This is the second game in the Crystal Quest series that sees our heroine Gemma return in search of crystals, gems and riches! This slot features bonuses and mechanics such as linked reels, unlimited win multipliers and a generous free spins feature!
This adventure-themed slot set deep underground sees symbols collapse into position one-by-one from the top of the game screen, symbols quiver and dramatically explode every time a winning combination is formed. Low paying symbols are different coloured gemstones whilst the two highest paying symbols include a warrior in diamond-encrusted armour and a wizard with a diamond-encrusted staff.
In terms of music, this slot has a cinematic orchestral score that's genuinely very enjoyable to listen to, we admit we even took a minute away from spinning the reels just to listen! So even if the graphics or gameplay don't blow you away the music might!
We were a little bit confused around the fact that this slot is based on a single character that doesn't actually appear in the slot itself, just the opening title screen.
This 4,069 ways to win slot looks like a cluster pays slot at first glance on account of the symbols falling individually, but it pretty much plays like your standard online slot that pays from left to right. The only thing players should be keeping an eye on is the increasing multiplier to the left of the reels, this climbs up after each successful cascade.
Players can access the game menu and sound settings on the left-hand side of the game grid whilst the stake selection, autoplay and stake selection buttons can all be found on the right-hand side of the game screen.
This slot (billed as one of Thunderkick's highest yet) boasts an RTP of 96.17% and offers players the opportunity to win 15,000x their stake, which is actually very good!
We enjoyed playing Crystal Quest: Arcane Tower, however, there was nothing we really saw when playing this to differentiate it from other similar online slots. We had a lot of fun chasing big multipliers as the symbols tumbled, but that's about it... The biggest criticism for us is that there's not much to differentiate this from the first game in the series Crystal Quest: Deep Jungle.
