With its generous jackpot and under-the-sea theme, Crystal Waters just might be the perfect progressive slot to play for the summer. Developed by Realtime Gaming (RTG), the video slot boasts of having colorful 2D graphics and animation to go along with generous gameplay. Like most of the developer’s video slots, this title has regular and special that can help players get more out of the time and money they spend on it. Also like a lot of titles developed by RTG, this progressive slot is playable mainly on Windows, Mac, or Linux desktops/laptops that have browsers that still support Flash.
Crystal Waters follows the same format as the majority of Realtime Gaming’s progressive slots. It has 5 reels, 3 rows, and 20 betting lines with players having the option to set their bets for as low as $.01 to as much as $100 per spin. In order to win, a spin will need to result in the appearance of at least 3 symbols of the same type on a betting line. These symbols need to be adjacent to each other and their appearance should start from the slot’s leftmost reel. A Dolphin symbol serves as a Wild and substitutes for all other symbols other than the Yacht Scatter symbol. Unlike with most titles, the Dolphin Wild symbol on this progressive slot only appears on the 2nd and 4th reels. Its appearance in a winning combination though will result in the win getting doubled. As for the Yacht Scatter symbols, these can appear anywhere on the slot. The appearance of 3 or more of these Scatter symbols will then result in the activation of the slot’s Free Games/Spins mode. Once activated, this mode gives players 15 Free Spins. During Free Spins, a Bonus Fish symbol serves as a Wild and can substitute for other symbols (other than Scatters). These Bonus Fish symbols also serve as 2x, 4x, or 8x multipliers if they are part of a winning combinations.
The Crystal Waters progressive slot is centered around an under the sea theme. The symbols and background of the slot reflect this. Like the majority of RTG’s video slots, the art style in this title isn’t that polished (relative to other video slots from competing developers/providers). With that said, the color palette and the fluidity of the animations and gameplay more than make up for any of its visual/graphical shortcomings. As for audio, players will appreciate the fact that RTG decided to not include background music (though there are still audio effects for actions like clicking on the spin button and the spinning of the reels).
