How To Play It
Probably because their slots incorporate betting strategies, the amount you can select always falls within the same range, being worth between $0.20 and $100.
Cygnus 2 has 6×4 reels at first, with 4096 ways to win. It might not look like it, since some of the reels are placed a bit higher than others. The game’s setup can expand, and will end up with 262,144 ways to win when you get all reels maxed out to 8 symbols.
Whenever wilds show up, and they’re easy to spot thanks to the golden W logo that they use, you will have an extra chance to form winning combinations. These symbols are common substitutes, found in most modern slot machines, and they can be combined with regular symbols to get you paid. They will not apply their powers to multiplier or bonus symbols.
As the reels are not at the same height, the symbols look like they’re placed in a diagonal, and they slide towards the left or right, when there are empty positions at a lower level next to them. You can get empty positions because the Avalanche mechanic removes winning symbols, leaving space for new ones to drop down. At the same time, the slot adds one extra row after each Avalanche, increasing the size of the game area (up to 8 symbols high, with 262,144 ways to win possible).
Having a Multiplier symbol slide towards the left, and reach the 1st reel, will result in a boost to the round’s multiplier by that amount.
With bonus symbols do the same thing, and reaching the 1st reel, you access the free spins. 7 rounds are available initially, but more can be claimed if bonus symbols once again get to the leftmost column. An advantage is the increasing multiplier, which doesn’t reset between drops.
One of the strengths of this slot machine, the top jackpot is worth as much as 50,000x the stake. Despite that kind of payout being available, the volatility is only a medium-high level. The major downside of the game is its RTP, at 94% (older ELK slots were at 96%, but they keep dropping lately).
Compared with the original, Cygnus 2 has top prizes 10x as big, with the same volatility level. The really big downside is the drop in RTP, from the original’s 96.10%, to just 94%.
