Get On The Grid

We are rather partial to piling in new slots for you to try every week. Naturally there are some slots that our players simply can’t leave alone – hello, Bonanza, Starburst and Cleo! – and we could just rest on our laurels and stick to our selection of ‘Player Favourites’, but we like to entice our guests to explore new things as often as possible. Like a sommelier when if comes to fine wine, we see ourselves as the sommelier for fine slots and we’ve got a cheeky little number we think you’ll find rather amusing on the palate this week . . .


Rabcat has been one of the smaller boutique slot developers in recent years, but has often punched way above its weight with beautifully presented slots incorporating novel features. Its latest release (powered by Microgaming) is Crystal Rift and it’s a fine example of its style. Fans of cascade slots will instantly warm to its gameplay, delivering the inherent thrill of seeing an initial win turn into a chain reaction of further wins as symbols explode and gravity tumbles symbols down to create new opportunities. However, we rather took a fancy to this slot’s unusual way in which it can add extra Wilds to play. Rabcat call it the Wild Grid feature and we love it. Our full review goes into more depth on this, but it’s a very compelling idea that can sustain cascades into very rich territory if you reach the threshold event to activate its effect.


Whilst it can be tempting to stick with what you know (and love) about certain slots. Games like Crystal Rift offer a chance to experience a similar thrill to playing classic cascade slots like Gonzo’s Quest and Pixies of the Forest. With a subtle novelty that brings a refreshing new frisson to a session with us. If you’ve fallen for cascade slots before, then this Rift in that relationship could prove very satisfying.
