The Egyptian themed slot of Cygnus, by ELK Studios, is different from those that we usually see thrown into this category. For starters, the name Cygnus comes from the Northern Cross in the night’s sky, and this constellation is said to alight with the pyramids of Giza in a frighteningly accurate manner. This led ELK Studios to combining the iconic Egyptian idea with a unique galactic themes to produce Cygnus!
The sounds and visuals of the game are perfectly Egyptians, with the reels forming the entrance of a pyramid, flanked by palm trees and the Northern Cross constellation sitting pretty in the sky. The reels themselves are 6 across, situated between two pillars. Sitting at 4 rows high, these can become added, making a total of 8 rows; there is a multiplier on the right pillar to give the player faith from the onset of the potential of this slot. The reels do not align properly, making for interesting gameplay with the features offered. Playing with 4,096 ways to win, unless the rows are all activated which changes this to 262,144 ways, the wins pay from left to right with three or more making a winning combination. There is an avalanche, or cascading reels, engine at work in the slot as well; with the unaligned reels the symbols that fall in the place of winning combinations fall naturally, as though falling down a flight of stairs or a 2p machine from a sea-side arcade.
Betting for the slot
The betting range for this slot is from 10p to £100 per spin, with plenty of room for players to enjoy the full swing of this slot. With a highest pay out of £500,000 available per spin, there is the potential of winning huge wins. With an RTP of up to 96.1% there is the chance of winning huge pay outs. Wins of up to 5,000 times the stake are available to be won and with that in mind, we should get to the symbols and features! Symbols to light up the sky The highest paying symbol is the Lucky 7, and the reason for this is unknown; your guess is as good as ours! But don’t despair, this gives you the potential for big wins.
The Lucky 7 usually bunches down the right-hand side of the grid. However, with the intricate ways of winning, they can be pulled into the centre of the grid. Other symbols that feature on the reels include the four lower paying gems and three higher paying symbols, which are seen as an ibis, a camel and a cat. The symbols aren’t the most graphically pleasing, however, they do offer large wins. The Lucky 7 mentioned earlier can pay 30 times the stake when matching 6.
The X symbol brings the multiplier on the right side to life if it makes it to the bottom row. Each of the Xs will push the multiplier up from x2 to x4 to x16, x32 and finally x64. The golden W is seen as the wild and will substitute for all other regular symbols. If the bonus symbol enters the slot, it needs to touch the left pillar for the player to unlock the potential. This potential takes the form of 7 Free Drops, where the reels expand to the full 8 rows to complete the drops. Multiplier symbols become sticky and can aid in winning! One perk is that this feature can be retriggered as many times as the player is able to!
With Egypt and the stars crashing into one another, the prize fund of up to £500,000 is amazingly generous and can offer all players a huge chance for wins!
