Cygnus 4 Review
The Cygnus series of games hasn't crossed our paths for review here at Slot Gods so I was able to go into this game with my all-seeing-eye wide open. What I can glean is that this series moves around from one influential place to another with each having its own historical connection to the occult in a da Vinci Code-type of way. It's a fun concept and the features are just as entertaining.
Nighttime Falls across London and a few lights tell us that there is a little life left in the Tower of London yet. In the sky, you get the image of the Cygnus star constellation and the columns to the side of the reels offer us yet more hints at the game's mysterious theme. The soundtrack is suitably dark and ominous and you can enjoy everything that Cygnus 4 offers on a range of devices, including mobile phones.
Elk Studios is a master of providing slots with incredible modifiers that take place throughout both the Base game and Bonus game. For this reason, you won't feel like you're missing out if you don't trigger any free spins during your session. For those who find themselves in a jurisdiction outside the UK that allows a Bonus Buy-in, the X-iter option will provide various ways to enjoy the modifiers and Bonus feature for a price.
50,000x is an incredible payout, even by modern slot standards, but you often get the impression that it's going to be a tough task to get anywhere close to this figure. Not so in this game as I was only one winning Avalanche away from reaching this prize as I made my way through the various column levels. I'm sure that this payout will go to some lucky player soon enough. For such a huge sum, you can expect an equally eye-watering level of volatility and the RTP is the ELK standard 94%.
In a way, I'm quite glad that this is my first Cygnus game as sometimes a series comparison can mar the experience. What I found was a captivating game with familiar but enjoyable modifiers and a Bonus feature that didn't feel like an essential part of the show—Cygnus 4 is great news for UK players.
