Crystal Quest: Frostlands
Crystal Quest: Frostlands is a 6-reel, 4,069 payline slot developed by Thunderkick. This slot is the third instalment in the Crystal Quest series and sees players once again join up with the game's heroine Gemma, this time to tackle the brutal landscapes of the Frostlands. This slot features wilds, massive symbols, unlimited win multipliers and free spins.
If you've played any of the other games in the Crystal Quest series, it's quite likely that you're going to know what to expect. This game looks and feels like a cluster pays slot in the fact that individual symbols fall from the top of the screen frozen in blocks of ice as opposed to rolling in on an entire reel. Low paying symbols are different coloured gemstones whilst the two highest paying symbols include a warrior clad in gold with a ruby sword and a very menacing Yeti.
In terms of sound, this game features a high-octane soundtrack with a loud beating drum that had us ready and raring to go as soon as we started listening. If you listen carefully you'll also hear the sound of raging icy winds.
As mentioned in previous Crystal Quest reviews, our only major complaint with regards to design is that the game's main character Gemma doesn't feature in the game itself, what's the point of having a main character if she doesn't show up during gameplay?
This is the third time we've mentioned it now across all three reviews in the series, but despite not looking like it, this game plays as you would expect any standard 6-reel slot to play. Wins are registered from left to right and winning symbols explode and are replaced by new ones, leading to some very tasty wins... Especially thanks to the unlimited increasing win multiplier that can be found to the left of the game reels.
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.
Crystal Quest: Frostlands is a high volatility slot with an RTP of 96.16% and a maximum win potential of 15,000x the player's stake, which is the same as the previous two games in the series.
Crystal Quest: Frostlands is certainly the best game of the Crystal Quest series so far thanks to the massive symbols that shake things up a little bit. However, that being said, it hasn't evaded us that all three games are practically identical but for a few things here and there.
