We Check Out the Crazy New Tumbling Reels Style Cygnus Slot From ELK Studios!
Mr Green Casino has just added the latest slot from ELK Studios titled Cygnus to their casino which is a very unusual avalanche style slot that use Marble shaped symbols that actually roll into new positions on the reels as wins are created. This new gameplay style takes a while to get used to, but once you understand how this mechanic works it’s quite easy to spot the potential wins as symbols are removed from the reels and the remaining symbols slide into new positions.
The Cygnus slot has a number of nice features including increasing way style wins with an initial 4096 standard ways capable of expanding up to 262,144 as further wins are created. Multipliers are also on offer rising up to the maximum 64x thanks to some special symbols, and some very high paying Red Seven symbols that require some of the innovative roll mechanics to occur to become winning pays!
Even the main bonus round is triggered unusually too, by having the main scatter symbol roll across the reels after wins are formed to the left-hand side of the reels, if you manage to get this special symbol all the way across you then awarded the free spins bonus round.
The winning potential of this slot is even more apparent during the bonus rounds, with more frequent multiplier symbols in play along with them being permanently in play once activated at the bottom of the reels, and with the chance of bonus retriggers there is lots of excitement and anticipation during the 7 free spins.
Make sure to watch this gameplay video of Cygnus below to see all of these great features in action!

When any wins are formed on the reels the symbols will explode, the surrounding symbols can then slide into new positions generating additional wins.
Additional symbols then drop down possibly creating more win and further avalanches and as the new symbols drop, extra rows are added up to a maximum of 8 rows which gives the maximum 262,144 ways.
The special Multiplier “X” Symbols appear at random but only become activated once they reach bottom row, any wins after this point have this multiplier value applied to them.
There is a maximum of 6 multipliers that can be activated at one time, doubling the wins each time to give the final huge 64x Multiplier.
The free spins are triggered when the special bonus symbol reaches the left side of the reels and awards an initial 7 free spins.
During the bonus round all 8 rows active are fully active (maximum ways) and the special Multiplier symbols are made sticky meaning they will stay around for the duration of the bonus round.
The bonus round can also be fully re-triggered awarding you even more free spins!
We really enjoyed playtesting the Cygnus Slot from ELK Studios, the new mechanics of sliding symbols, and a new way to trigger the bonus round make the gameplay very engaging, the enticement of huge multipliers and very high paying symbols give this slot some huge potential.
Our playtesting bonus rounds didn’t disappoint either, with frequent bonuses over 100x stake, our best was over 250x stake, and with bags more potential as we didn’t have a re-triggered feature either.
If you a fan of tumbling reels/ avalanche style slots then seek this out one, as we had great fun playing it. and with crazy 64x Multipliers there have to be some huge wins on offer with a lucky bonus round/re-trigger!
