Slot developer Play N Go recently released a new slot called Cloud Quest.
Unlike ordinary slot machines, this slot does not have spinning reels as such. Instead there is a 5 x 5 grid showing the symbols. A win is triggered by matching at least three symbols horizontally, vertically or diagonally. The winning combination is then removed from the grid and the remaining symbols tumble down (if applicable). On a win, the middle symbol turns wild and remains and tumbles on the screen.
The features can be triggered two ways.
The first way is by clearing the “bonus” line. Once that is done, you get up to 17 free spins on a 3 reel slot with a win potential of 100x bet.
The second way is via the wheel that is displayed on the right hand side of the slot. For each winning combination containing the special symbol, a segment of the wheels is lit up. The wheel at the end of the tumble then spins and if it lands on the lit symbol, one of the four features is triggered.
If the whole of the screen is cleared, a prize of 500x bet is awarded. If this were to happen during the 5x win feature on the wheels, the maximum pay out of 2,500x bet is achieved.
The slot has great potential as the below video shows. I had a great win at Videoslots casino clearing the screen for a £500 win. However, big wins are not given very often by the slot but it is not a balance drainer either with small wins very often awarded, keeping the balance ticking along nicely. I would say it is therefore a medium variance game.
Cloud Quest can be played at any of the following casinos that we recommend:
