Quickspin Gaming will be launching their new Crystal Queen slot on the 18th of August 2015. Let’s over analyse everything we have, including the video, shall we?
If the characters on screen seem vaguely familiar that would be because Quickspin were inspired by the H.C. Andersen story about the Snow Queen.
Or, perhaps more accurately, Disney’s Frozen, which is itself inspired by the Snow Queen.
Perhaps we are being unfair. The white haired snow queen is clearly what generations of artists have used to depict the evil queen.
However, the red-head, the blonde and the reindeer? The comparison is too obvious not to at least be a nodding tribute to the most popular Disney animation of 2013.
Have a quick look at the video of this new slot game and see what we mean.
This is the online slot version of course, and it looks pretty as anything.
We’ve been told we will be getting the mobile slot version at the same time, though we can’t quite image what it will look like.
6×5 reels and 56 paylines is a fair amount to try and fit into a small screen.
Even the Spinata Grande slot, with 40 paylines, only tries to go 4 reels high, and that can feel scrunched up at times.
And to compare, the likes of Raging Rhino, with it’s 4096 paylines, is only 4 high by 6 reels along, to get the most out of the space.
Unless Quickspin have made it so that you can now play in portrait mode, as well as landscape, we fear the Crystal Queen mobile slot might be more suitable for iPad or Android tablet casinos only.
The base game is set in winter, all under the spell of the abominable Snow Queen, whilst during the free spins, the slot thaws out and you’re playing in a bright pastel spring.
Yeah, it works. Even in the winter scene, with three rows frozen, the symbols really stand out.
Though, if we are honest, the Ace-10 symbol feel a little lazy for Quickspin. We only have to point you to the Sinbad slot to show you what we mean, with each symbol individually crafted to perfection.
It will certainly be different.
Both are 5 star slots, and both have features we loved.
Though it might seem that we are going against everything we know about casino slots (let’s be honest, the bonus games are usually the highlight), in this case we wonder if the free spins will lack the same thrill.
Leo Vegas gives you £1,000 / €$700 in bonus over 4 deposits, letting you play for longer.
Reason being, when you win during the base game, not only do you increase the multiplier, but the symbols disappear.
You then unlock an extra 12 paylines (or frozen row) and get another chance of winning.
It keeps you at the edge of your seat as you build a momentum of wins.
We’d argue that the thrill may very quickly disappear if the whole board is unlocked.
Though we could be wrong, as the free spins pay both ways, so the chances of catching that 5x multiplier over 56 paylines becomes an easier reality.
Still, what looks promising is that you can get big wins in both the base game and during the 10 free spins, as the multipliers don’t increase, just your opportunity to get the wins.
However, unlike Gonzo or Reel Rush, there’s no hiding the fact that the Crystal Queen mobile slot isn’t as hard hitting.
That said, with a 850x your bet win, if it hits often, it could still be very playable as an easy win slot.
At one of our favourite mobile casinos.
This gambling site has 15 slot software, so if the Quickspin video slots don’t do it for you, you’ve got plenty to keep you occupied.
We are talking about Leo Vegas of course, who give you a healthy £1,000 / €$700 in bonus over 4 deposits, and 200 free spins.
20 of those free spins, by the way, you get simply for registering and being awesome, with no deposit needed.
Crystal Queen slot will be out on the 18th of August 2015, so if you can’t wait that long and want to see all that Leo Vegas casino and Quickspin have to offer, we have obvious recommendations.
The first of which is the Big Bad Wolf slot, which has won industry awards for how pretty and wonderful it is to play.
Though their latest, Jewel Blast is wildly fun too, and you can play both at Leo Vegas.
