Crystal Lotus is easily EYECON’s trippiest, flower-power game with a chilled-out vibe. The game doesn’t do much to fill us in on the storyline – we’re mainly left in confusion and wonder, which is oddly satisfying.
We can’t deny that the visuals are interesting and generally lovely to look at. The providers have done some gorgeous rendering on the flowers, and the symbols look like impressive cuts of precious stones. These flowers are definitely the central theme, but EYECON has also thrown in some bar symbols and lucky 7s just to confuse the generally calming aesthetics.
Even better than Crystal Lotus’ graphics are the stunning animations. If you’re lucky enough to land a win, you’ll feel even luckier once you’ve witnessed the screen erupt in a dramatic kaleidoscope of exciting patterns and vibrant colours.
You’ll also enjoy a relaxing soundtrack that adds to the dream-like nature of this game, which is a perfect choice to enhance the stunning visuals. The combination of graphics and soundtrack make this slot fairly unique compared to most. In our opinion, it’s a refreshing change from the loud and dramatic nature of many slots.
Like most EYECON games, Crystal Lotus’ gameplay is pretty basic and very easy to understand. This is good because a relaxing theme combined with stressful gameplay wouldn’t make much sense.
The grid is a classic 3×5, and there is almost nothing on offer in terms of bonus features. This is where avid gamers may find this slot slightly too relaxing, possibly to the point of boring. However, if you’re enjoying the laid-back atmosphere of Crystal Lotus, you might be happy with the single expanding wilds feature.
The game is also modifiable, and you can play anywhere on the ten win lines from one to ten. This means that you can place your bet per spin more pedantically. This is probably the only strategy you’ll find in this game, so we recommend that you use it if this is where your gaming interests lie.
The wild symbol can appear on the second, third, or fourth reel and can replace all other symbols on the grid. You’ll see the wild expand, fill the reel, and offer a free respin to the player. If the wild continues to land on a respin, this process will continue until it doesn’t.
Crystal Lotus has an RTP of 96.50%, which is about average for this kind of slot. In fact, it’s ever so slightly higher than average, so players shouldn’t be put off, despite seeing higher RTP’s on slots elsewhere.
While the betting range can vary slightly between sites, they tend to be between $0.01 to $125, which is quite a large range. This means that whether you want to bet big or avoid breaking the bank, this game can be enjoyed by all.
The game is labelled as low volatility, so if you’re looking for small and frequent wins, Crystal Lotus may well be the game for you. However, if you prefer high stakes, this chilled-out game might not cut it.
Crystal Lotus is one of the most visually attractive slots that we have come across, and the animations are truly amazing. You can’t do much strategising with such low volatility, but this shouldn’t deter players who are looking for a low-stake, enjoyable game.
