Dare you make contact with this ancient civilisation that guards their gate with 7 rows of ancient symbols? It’s worth a try in this Contact slot.
This Contact mobile slot is a 5 reel 7-row slot game where you create clusters of wins of 5 or more symbols touching vertically or horizontally.
You’d think you need to play this in portrait mode only, but we are happy to report that Play’n GO have done their magic again and this looks beautiful regardless of whether you play in landscape on your iPad and then switch to your Android phone.
It is beautiful, though not particularly original. Fans of Aztec type slots like Zuma by Popcat or the Temple Quest Spinfinity slot by BTG will recognise the setup. There are stones, dropping from above and exploding in a glory of wins.
So instead of the winning symbols exploding, this Contact real money slot keeps those clusters or symbols and removes all the losers, then more tumble down from above.
You still get that value for money feel, but instead, you are looking to catch more of that winning symbol, or really any more wins.
Because yes, getting clusters is good, but what you win is to fill up rows, because that’s how you get multipliers and the really big wins.
That, and getting to the top of the gate and triggering the free spins.
If you manage to fill the 5×7 grid with winning symbols all the way to the top you’ll trigger some free spins. These work a little different in that all the wins stay sticky and tumble down below for every free spin.
Now you see why you don’t get many. But the same mechanics apply, so you get lots of tumbles, and more importantly, special features like upgrades, extra spins, and bigger multipliers. Much, much bigger multipliers.
This Contact slot game is not perfect. It is volatile and it will quickly eat up your budget if you don’t start low and build up your stack, and the free spins can come every 10 spins or nothing for 200.
But if you are tired of playing the same old 5×3 10 payline slot machines and want something that succeeds in creating a little drama on each spin, this Play’n GO online slot is for you.

Cluster Pays: You get a win by getting 5 or more matching symbols in a connected cluster of 5 symbols touching horizontally and/or vertically. The more symbols in a cluster, the higher the win.
Cascading Sticky Win Reels: When you get a winning cluster, instead of them exploding and more tumbling from above... the winning symbols stay, drop to the bottom of the reel, and you get more symbols cascade from above. This continues as long as more winning symbols are found.
Multiplier Rows: Fill the entire 2nd, 4th or 6th row full of winning symbols and you'll get a total multiplier of 2x, 3x, or 4x, respectively.
Bonus Round: If you reach the top of the grid with just a single winning symbol you trigger 3 free spins.
This time all the winning symbols are kept for the whole of the bonus rounds, and more winning symbols are collected as you spin.
Each row you fill gives you different bonus features:
Super Bonus Round: During this feature, you'll trigger 6 free spins, only this time, every single row is filled with a multiplier and a special feature trigger.
What are the special slot features: You can trigger one of three special features when you hit the right rows during the bonus free spins rounds.
No scatters or wild symbols? What is this madness? Yet, it's a madness that Play'n GO game studios manage to pull off thanks to the cluster pays and sticky wins.
You do need the multipliers to get anything over 20x your bet, but considering just how volatile this Contact grid slot on mobile claims to be, there's a fair amount of action on the reels.
Yes, we wish the top win could have been closer to the 5,000 times your bet of the Cash Vandal slot machine, but here the flow of the game is faster and the bonuses keep you on the edge of your seat each and every time.
There is something wonderful about watching those winning symbols tumble down from above, just one row away from paying out 6x or 10x or 25x your total win. One for those who like something a little bit different - not unlike the Rise of Olympus video slot.
