Queen of the Crystal Rays Slot

Queen of the Crystal Rays is a highly unusual fantasy themed slot game from Microgaming. The base game action takes place on a 6 reel, 4 row, 25 payline machine but the reels can double in size on any spin to bring 50 paylines into play. Also boosting your winning chances are 2x wild multipliers and a bonus round where shooting crystal rays can deliver big paydays. Play this colourful, medium variance game on your PC, tablet or mobile device from between 20p and £50 per spin.

The design here is very different from what you’ll find in a standard slot game. The setting is a vast cavern of a lost temple. The reels are made up of brightly coloured crystal symbols as well as ornately designed pots, goblets and treasure chests.

The Queen is the top symbol. Land 6 of these in combination for a payout of 2.5 times your total stake. As well as a standard wild, there’s also a 2x multiplier wild which can double awards. You don’t have to start a winning combination from the leftmost reel here. Land 3 in an adjoining position and you’ll land a winner. There are 2 bonuses on offer here.

Crystal Ray feature - on any spin, you could see the reels randomly expand to turn the number of ways to win from 25 up to 50. Special crystals can morph into wilds too to further boost your winning chances.

Queen of the Crystal Rays feature - land 3 or more bonus symbols on the same spin to activate the main bonus feature. This takes place on a new gameboard which is filled with cash values. Crystal rays then shoot around the board. If they hit a cash value, you’ll win it. You’ll get 4 goes here. Also boosting your winning potential are multipliers of up to 5x.

This slot game is certainly different. That’s true of the Technicolor design as well as the unusual gameplay. If you’re looking for a break from the standard diet of free spins, cash trails and pick me prizes, then this is certainly worth a look. It’s not the most volatile game you’ll play but the medium variance is feisty enough to keep things interesting. It’s possible to win up to 2,597 times your stake from a single spin which is none too shabby.

Queen of the Crystal Rays is a novel take on the classic fantasy theme. If you like this genre, then it’s definitely worth investigating. If you want free spins and all the usual features, Microgaming’s Immortal Romance has it all.
