The Cygnus slot is brought to you by ELK Studios and has 6 reels, 4 rows and 4,096 ways to win. Based on the Northern constellation, it is available to play from 10p to £100 a spin on all devices.
The Cygnus slot is based on a northern constellation which lies on the plane of the Milky Way – the game is set in ancient Egypt as the constellation is visible behind the pyramid. The alignment to the Giza pyramids in Egypt is the setting. There are 2 pillars – 1 either side of the reels.
Symbols are in round marble format and include 3 gemstones, a green pelican, blue camel, red cat and a lucky 7 poker chip. The latter is by far the highest paying symbol with 3, 4, 5 or 6 in combination giving you 5, 10, 15 or 30 times your stake respectively.
There’s also a wild symbol which substitutes for all symbols except the bonus symbol and multiplier scatter symbol. Being a 4,096 ways to win slot game, you need 3 or more of the same symbol across successive reels – beginning from the first reel of course. When you get a win, a brand-new game mechanic is used where symbols use gravity and slide left and right to bring all symbols into play. This allows for more winning combinations and avalanches (more info below).
The game starts you off with 6 reels and 4 rows of symbols, using 4096 ways to win. As wins are formed, and avalanches trigger, the symbols will slide from left to right, in a gravity assisted mechanic. The symbols are not all on the same row, they’re more like diagonally placed, so when some of them are removed, others can fall from the neighbouring reels to occupy empty positions. The game will also add new rows of symbols, as you form combinations, and eventually you could end up with 8 rows of symbols and as many as 262,144 ways to win active.
One of the regular features involved with this game is the X symbol. This one needs to reach the bottom of the game area, through successive avalanches, and if it does then you get the multiplier to go up. You keep going up on that multiplier pillar, reaching a maximum of 32x.
W logos are the ones acting as replacements, so these are the wild symbols, useful whenever they appear on a reel where you need a combo to form.
The game has a bonus feature as well, with 7 free drops available inside, and you trigger it by getting the bonus symbol to reach the left pillar and touch it.
When you get a winning combination, the responsible symbols explode and disappear – new symbols then fill the empty spaces which gives you another chance to form a win.
The avalanche cycle continues as long as a new winning combination appears. With each avalanche, more rows of symbols appear – with a maximum of 8 rows on offer, you could play with up to 262,144 ways to win. Here’s how many ways to win you can get from the number of rows:
- 4 rows = 4,096 ways to win
- 5 rows = 15,625 ways to win
- 6 rows = 46,656 ways to win
- 7 rows = 117,649 ways to win
- 8 rows = 262,144 ways to win
Look out for multiplier scatter symbols – when these reach the bottom row, the multiplier value increases to 2x, 4x, 8x, 16x, 32x and finally 64x!
Free Drops Bonus feature
The Cygnus slot also comes with a Free Drops Bonus feature. Look out for the bonus symbol which can reach the left pillar (by gravitating) to trigger the feature with 7 free spins. Here, you play with 8 rows and the maximum 262,144 ways to win. The good news is that multiplier scatter symbols are sticky meaning multipliers up to 64x are easier to come by. You can also retrigger the feature to give you 14 free spins/drops in total.
