In a joint effort from developers Microgaming and Rabcat, Crystal Rift Slots is a good example for of quality over quantity. Crystal Rift is a 5-reel, 25-payline slot that has a cascading feature that can bring the big wins and a bonus feature that is triggered by something other than symbols on the reels. Bettors who enjoy games with cascading symbols or tiles may find themselves putting Crystal Rift into their game rotation.
Crystal Rift scores extra points from this reviewer for simply leaving the playing cards in solitaire and other games; players will not find any royalty on these symbols, only brightly colored gems and a simple wild symbol and bonus feature. Crystals of amber, lue, green, purple, red, white and yellow are only some of the colors found on the reels of this slot. Like many cascading slot titles. Th small graphic details have been left out to use processor speed on the game itself; cascading titles can be memory greedy, especially with older computers and devices, when single spin collapses and refills more that two or three times can really be resource heavy and many online slot players will sacrifice looks for a game that runs smoothly.
Crystal Rift Slots is a standard fixed line game of twenty five lines that only play left to right. With coin sizes starting at $0.01 and up to only $2 and a one coin per payline restriction gives this slot a maximum wager of only $50 per spin of the reels make this a workable choice for those on a tight budget.
While the wild symbol acts just like most wildsw and can be used to replace some of the symbols on the reels to create wins, the wilds in Crystal Rift Slots add an extra level of excitement when a bettor wins a line bet on three consecutive spins of the reels. After the third straight line win, a grid will appear somewhere on the reels in a 2X2, 3X3 or 4X4 configuration for the following wager and spin of the reels After the reels are spun, all symbols in the grid turn to wilds and the game pays out as if it were a base spin. Those who play this title do not need to worry about a lack of action on the reels between wild grid spins as this is a collapsing game; any winning symbols are removed from the play area, all the remaining tiles drop to the bottom and the playing field is refilled with random symbols from the top of the screen. If the new symbols create a new win, it repeats the exploding tiles, collapses and refills with symbols until there is no longer any wins and the base spins in the game return.
Microgaming has been collaborating with smaller developers recently and the development team at Rabcat helped to create a game that players will want to return to multiple times. Using two teams to create these titles is beneficial for both companies; working with Microgaming gives Rabcat more exposure to bettors and Microgaming has help with maintaining its frenetic release schedule of one or more new titles a month. Players win by having fresh new content to enjoy at their favorite Microgaming casinos. Microgaming is not the first company to collaborate with another developer but are so far one of the most successful at this trend.
