Everything certainly is crystal clear when you play this game from Realistic Games. And that’s because all of the icons are in crystal format. This may seem like the game’s overall theme, but really, it isn’t. Instead, you’ll also see that there’s a background featuring a tropical island at night. Palm trees stand against a backdrop of shimmering stars and calm waters. There’s also the addition of a fairly tropical sounding piece of music as you spin the reels as well, creating an interesting atmosphere to it. As far as the graphics of the game go, you’ll find everything is quite sharp with details. Overall, it presents gamers with an intriguing offering.
The Shimmering Wonders
In relation to the layout of the game, it is all viewable on a five reel and three row design. This is a familiar interface for an online slot, so gamers should find a relatively regular offering. These reels play home to the various different icons, which, as we said, are all different gemstones. There’s the red, heart-shaped crystal as well as the circular blue one. Joining them are two oblong-like shapes, one purple and the other green. Finally, you will find two additional symbols in the form of a triangular, orange offering and a square yellow gem. These make up the basic icons of Crystal Clear.
As far as the remaining features of the standard game interface go, you’ll also find that there are 10 pay lines. This is not something that you can customise, so you’ll always be placing bets on this amount of lines. However, all players have the opportunity to change the wager that they place per spin. This is done with the up and down arrows that are available. With these, you can move the stake per line between £0.01 and £10. Therefore, you can place a maximum overall wager of £100 per spin. You’ll also find an ‘Auto’ button in the game, allowing you to spin the reels up to 100 consecutive times as the same bet level.
Find Your Way to Amassing Your Own Gemstone Collection
While this game does look much like a slightly alternative version of the popular game Bejewelled, it offers a couple of specialities, unlike that offering. Actually, the main special feature of this game is its wild symbol. This is the icon of the diamond crystal with the word ‘WILD’ written across it. As a wild, it will stand in for any other symbol on the reels in order to form a winning combination. If you manage to spin five of these on to a winning pay line, you will receive a bet multiplier of times 1,000. The maximum pay in any one game is 10,000 times the stake per line value.
There’s also the addition of something known as the ‘Crystal Clear Bonus Spins‘ round. At the start of each new game, you’ll find that there are eight wilds on each reel. Whenever you manage to form a win that features one or more wilds, the bonus feature comes into play. All non-wild icons that feature as part of the winning combination will transform into wilds. Then, you’ll receive a free re-spin with these enhanced reels. Further wilds are also added and free re-spins will be given. This continues until a spin results in a non-winning round or until the jackpot amount is won.
The Final Word
This game may look quite simple upon first look compared to other titles featured in our online slots reviews, but when you start playing, it does feature its own entertaining specialities. The setting, when in comparison with the general theme, is quite baffling. But, hey, we’re playing it to win money, not to marvel at the scenery, right? And we’re generally a fan of most games that allow you to take advantage of freespins or re-spins.
