Quickspin’s Crystal Queen is a generic take on the hit Pixar movie Frozen. We use the world generic lightly, though, because this Quickspin slot is anything but cliché. The frozen reels at the top of the screen are especially interesting because they can unfreeze and give you more potential winning combinations. We’ll discuss this feature later along with Crystal Queen’s betting options, symbols, features, and return to player (RTP).
Crystal Queen features 5 reels and up to 56 paylines, with a default 5x3 grid (default 20 paylines). As we’ll cover later, the reels can grow to a 5x6 grid, which is where the 56 paylines come into play.
The minimum bet for this slot is £/€0.50, while the maximum wager is £/€100.00 per spin. Once you’ve set your betting preferences, you can autospin the reels for between 10 and 1,000 spins.
Symbols in this game include the Crystal Queen, woman, man, reindeer, generic letters, wild icon, spreading wild, and bonus scatter symbol.
The wild icon substitutes for everything except the bonus scatter and spreading wild. The spreading wild adds 1 to 5 extra wilds in random places adjacent to the spreading wild symbol.
The graphics in this slot are excellent, and you can really see the detail in the queen, woman, man, and reindeer. The background features snow-covered trees and really sets the theme.
This slot offers several notable features, including Swooping Reels, win multipliers and free spins. Swooping Reels involves symbols from winning combinations disappearing, allowing symbols from above to fall and take their place.
Each swoop unfreezes one row, and you can unfreeze all six rows with three consecutive swoops. Every row that’s unfrozen adds 12 betting lines, which, after three consecutive swoops, gives you 56 total paylines. Unfrozen rows also unlock multipliers next to each reel, with 2x (one swoop), 3x (two swoops), and 4x (three swoops) multipliers all available.
You trigger 10 free spins by getting three or more bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. During free spins, the entire 5x6 grid is unlocked, giving you access to all 56 paylines.
Return to player for Crystal Queen is 96.16%, which is above average for an online slot.
In summary, Crystal Queen is a unique slot that really incorporates the theme by seeing reels unfrozen as you get more “swoops.” We also like how you get multipliers on your wins as more reels are unfrozen. As if this isn’t enough, you can earn free spins and a spreading wild feature. Add in the fact that Crystal Queen offers excellent graphics, and this is definitely a slot worth playing.
