Cygnus is a ways to win slot offering up to 262,144 ways to win, which means that players win cash by landing three or more symbols on adjacent reels from left to right. There are plenty of winning opportunities here, and some of the slot’s symbols payout, too; the slot’s highest paying symbol is the 7 symbol, which pays between 5x and 30x the bet for between two and six symbols on adjacent reels. The red cat symbol pays up to 3x the bet for up to six symbols on adjacent reels, while lower valued symbols include various gemstones which pay up to 0.2x or 0.3x the bet for six symbols.
Cygnus features the incredibly popular Avalanche feature, which means that all symbols which are part of a win explode and new symbols fall into place. This means that multiple wins can land from a single spin. More than this, as players land consecutive wins, each multiplier Scatter symbol which lands on the bottom row advances the multiplier meter, meaning later consecutive wins payout big. If a bonus symbol reaches the left pillar, this will trigger the Free Drops bonus game, which offers 7 Free Drops with multiplier Scatter symbols ‘sticking’ between drops, which means they’re much more likely to reach the bottom row. Free Drops are almost always where the slot’s biggest wins are found.
Return to player
Cygnus offers a return to player of 96.10%, which means players who spend $100 on the reels can expect an average return of $96.10. This is about average, although players keen to maximise winnings could probably do better elsewhere. It’s a medium to high variance slot, which means it’s worth waiting for those big Free Drops payouts; casual players looking for a slot they can drop in and out of might be disappointed here.
