NetEnt are used to creating beautiful slots with beautiful graphics, with game play that leaves you feeling like you’ve had a good, balanced, slots session. This Dazzle Me slot however, is a little different.
And by a little different we mean that unlike its name would suggest, you might not be left feeling dazzled, but instead feeling a little more frazzled, as you spin and watch your balance decrease.
That’s not to say that these five reels with 76 bet lines won’t produce you some good winning combinations. They can, and do.
Just that you will have to fight hard to get them, which isn’t what you’d expect from a medium variance slot.
When you open up this Dazzle Me slot game you’re greeted with a bright and colourful set of reels with green, purple, blue and red gems along with the golden bells symbol and classic 7 symbol that you’d expect to see more in a classic 3 reel slot machine than a 5 reel video slot.
You’ll also notice that the shape of your reels isn’t your standard 5×3 or 5×4 reel layout.
Yes you do get five reels but they are laid out in a 1×3 1×3 1×4 1×4 and 1×5, and that’s where this game gets’s interesting thanks to the way that the bonus features show up.
One thing you’ll notice is that the wild symbol doesn’t show up on a normal spins as an individual slot symbol.
Instead you will have to be patient, before randomly out of nowhere, between 1 and 5 of the reels will turn completely wild.
If you are lucky enough to get multiple wild reels in the right place you can win some great base game wins upward of 50x your bet. Otherwise, even without the max wild reels, you can still expect to win around 15 – 20x your bet in the base game, and sometimes even just 1x – 5x your bet – helping to top up your balance, but nothing more.
The randomness of this feature makes it hard to truly love and anticipate, but shows up often enough not to feel gimmicky.
Triggering the free spins, much like in other NetEnt slots, is done by finding 3, 4 or 5 of the free spin scatter symbols giving you 8, 12 and 16 free spins respectively.
We found these quite hard to trigger though, having to spin a good 150 – 200 spins in the base game in order to hit them, so remember to budget accordingly.
And once you do trigger them you will be on the look out for for the linked reels that can help to provide some bigger winning combinations.
Basically only during the free spin games at the beginning of each spin up to 4 reels can become linked together, much like in the slot Twin Spin.
With the reels as exact copies, you can get some thrilling spins, and hopefully big wins.
Still, unlike it’s more famous sister, this Dazzle Me online slot doesn’t give enough bite during the free spins. Though the potential is there, mostly we are talking about 10x – 25x our total bet on average.
As all good casino software providers nowadays, NetEnt to provide their fans with the Dazzle Me Touch mobile slot version of the game.
Which opens up to fill your whole screen, and tries to dazzle you with all it’s shiny gems just as much as the online slot.
Available to play on Android, iPhone and iPad, you’ll find the same frequent wins thanks to that 96.69% return to player rate and still have the chance at winning that maximum 152,000 top prize.
It’s true that we hold NetEntertainment to a very high standard when it comes to creating slot machines online and on mobile. They have themselves set the precedent with top games like the jackpot slot Hall of Gods, and Jack and the Beanstalk.
Therefore for them to create a game with a title like Dazzle Me, and not quite fulfil on that promise, is a little disappointing.
That’s not to say that you won’t have fun spinning on these simple reels.
Those random wilds reels in the base game, and linked reels in the free spins, do give you the action needed to hope for big wins.
There’s definitely potential here, it’s just that, given a choice, we’d rather spend our money trying to find immortality in the higher variance Pyramid Quest for Immortality slot.Play Now at Royal Panda »
