Dungeons & Dragons Crystal Caverns Video Slot Review
Dungeons & Dragons Crystal Caverns is a 5 reel 20 payline video slot that is provided by IGT. The game, like Dungeons & Dragons Fortress of Fortunes, is also based on the famous role-play strategy game and not the infamous cartoon series. It comes with a 5,000 coin jackpot which is pretty handy and can be played from just 20p a spin to as much as £100 a spin.
Crystal Caverns uses the Tumbling Reels feature which has been made famous by IGT’s Da Vinci Diamonds game. This means that instead of reels spinning, symbols with drop into place from above. When you have a winning combination, the winning symbols will then disappear and be replaced with new symbols – giving you the chance of more wins.
There is a Free Spins feature which can be played if you get 3 Bonus symbols on reels 1, 2 and 3 simultaneously. You will begin with 6 free spins but will gain additional free spins if you see bonus symbols during the feature. If you get 3 Bonus symbol, you will receive 2, 3 or 4 extra free spins. 4 Bonus symbols will give you 4, 6, 8 or 10 extra free spins and 5 Bonus symbols gives you 6, 8, 10, 12 or 15 extra free spins.
In total, there are up to 300 free spins to be won with a 1x multiplier. The Tumbling Reels feature also applies meaning you can win time and time again from every single winning free spin. The graphics and animations look a little dated compared to newer slots but it’s a middle of the road slot for me.
Dungeons & Dragons Crystal Caverns is considered a classic though and is one of the most popular slots provided by IGT. In my opinion, it’s a clone of the infamous Da Vinci Diamonds but neither of them are ones I play regularly as I find the games slow and a tad boring.
NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest uses the Avalanche Reels feature which is very similar but much better executed in my opinion. Anyway, it’s a medium variance slot with decent wins available mainly in the free spins feature. If you want bigger multipliers and a further bonus feature, I recommend you play Dungeons & Dragons Fortress of Fortunes.
