The constellations will decide your fate in this Cygnus 2 slot where symbols rolls and drop, explode dramatically, and increase the rows, allowing you to play up 262,144 ways to win game.
Don’t let the round symbols fool you; the gravity of the symbols may work a little differently in this video slot, but at heart, what you have here is a fairly simple machine.
Cygnus 2 slot starts as a 4096 ways to win 6×4 reels machine, with every exploding win symbol leading to an avalanche of more symbols dropping down and an extra row added. You have wilds; you have multiplier symbols, and you have scatters that trigger the free spins.
The only thing that seems a little odd is the way the round symbols fall either left or right, giving this an edge of unpredictability that matches the very high volatility. Make no mistakes; with a top win of 50,000x your bet and a RTP of 94%, the Cygnus 2 slot is a dangerous but potentially profitable game to play.
During the base game, you have two main features. One is the fact that on each win, you get an extra row, increasing your chance of catching symbols left to right. Very similar, so far, to the IO slot or the Bompers game review.
But spread throughout the game are the wild symbols and the multiplier symbols. The wild replaces other symbols as you would expect, but the multipliers do… nothing. At least not when they first fall.
However, on a win, they move. If they manage to land on column 1, they add the multiplier to all further wins and turn into a wild. We’ve seen wins of over 10x our bet in the base game alone.
To get the top win in this Cygnus 2 slot machine, you must get a bonus symbol to move or land on column 1. When you do, you’ll get 7 free spins, but now the multipliers are sticky.
With 7 drops, you may not reach much more than in the base game, or you may get over 25x multipliers, allowing you to create a built-up of avalanching wins that is exciting to watch.
But you have to remember that much like the Punk Toilet slot or Tombstone R.I.P by No Limit City; this is a very volatile game that requires patience to get anywhere, and really only for experienced gamblers.
That said, we had a great time playing on this Cygnus 2, and we would happily go and play at our favourite online slot sites.

All Ways Pays Left to right: This Cygnus 2 slot pays when you get symbols left to right on each reel - they don't have to touch, you just need at least one symbol on each of the reels to get a 3/4/5 or 6 of a kind, or more.
Avalanching Wins and Expanded Reels: When you get a set of winning symbols, they explode, and you get an extra row of symbols added to the game. The round symbols tumble down and fall either left or right to fill any empty spaces.
Wild Symbol: The Wild symbol is a substitute for any other symbol to create a win. It does not replace the bonus or the multiplier symbols.
Multiplier Symbol: If a multiplier symbol reaches the leftmost column, it increases the current spin win multiplier and turns into a wild symbol.
If a multiplier symbol ends up in the bottom room in columns 2 to 6, it will be removed and moved one row to the left closer to column 1.
Bonus and Free Drops: A bonus symbol that reaches the leftmost column triggers 7 free drops, with the current active multiplier brought into the bonus free spin game. You can retrigger the free drops similarly within the bonus game, and much like the multiplier symbol, if it reaches the bottom of the screen on columns 2 to 6, it will then be dropped back in closer to column 1.
During the free drops, the active multiplier doesn't reset between spins. Instead, it stays sticky throughout.
Improving from the original by simply increasing the top win, fans of high variance slots will love catching big multipliers and getting those avalanching wins.
We are a fan of the gravity drop mechanics on Elk Studios slots, mostly because it gives this game an unpredictability that goes well with the avalanching wins. Considering how volatile this is, you get a fair amount of chain reaction that feels exciting.
There is no escaping from the fact that this Cygnus 2 slot has an RTP of 94%, but with a top win of 50,000x your bet, you can understand it. It's a small price to pay for jackpot amounts, but still a higher RTP than most Dream Drop slots.
A magical aspirational slot that we would happily play at any good real money casino.
