Cygnus Slot Elk Studios

Cygnus is Elk Studios software powered video slot with 5 reels and up to 262144 paylines. This is galaxy inspired slot that perfectly blends the Egyptian theme with star constellations that are known for getting into the alignment with Giza pyramids. So travel to Egypt once more by spinning the reels here for fun or visit any of the Elk Casinos to do it for real.

How to Play Cygnus Slot

When you find yourself in front of the pyramid, lift your head towards the sky and choose the bets to help form constellations in this night sky.

  • By clicking on Stacked Coins button you will open the separate betting panel which will help you get the bets increased or decreased, or help you choose the betting strategy.
  • Spin button is used to set the reels in motion.
  • Auto will start autoplay with the chosen number of automatic spins without interruptions.

Slot Features

So far, there is one thing that is constant with Elk powered games, and that is the betting strategies portion of the game.

There are 3 strategies: Optimizer, Leveller, Jumper and Booster. Optimizer will change bet level automatically adapting to the selected percentage of your balance. Leveller strategy will raise a bet after 5 consecutive losses, and repetition will increase the bet 2 more levels. This will reset after a win. Booster raises a bet by 1 level after a loss, and it resets after a win. All of these go up until reaching 4 levels above base bet. Jumper will raise the bet 1 level after every winning round, until reaching 4 levels above the base bet, and it will reset after a loss.

Wild

Wild is one of those regular symbols that pretty much always have the same role, and that is to substitute for any symbol in the game when it is possible to form a win, except the bonus and the multiplier scatter symbols.

Avalanche

We’re all too well familiarized with this kind of winning mechanics. When you land a win the symbols involved will explode and disappear while other symbols will tumble down in a rolling manner. The avalanche cycle will continue for as long as there are wins to be formed. Furthermore, at the end of the cycle an additional row of symbols will get added to the top which can continue until the number of rows reach a maximum of 8.

Multipliers

At the Obelisk set right from the reels, you will be able to see the multipliers range which goes from x2 up to x64. Each consecutive multiplier scatter symbol that reaches the bottom row will increase the multiplier value. The active multiplier is applied on all subsequent symbol wins.

Free Drops

A bonus symbol that reaches the left pillar triggers the free drops bonus round which is played with 8 rows. During the feature, the multiplier scatter symbols are sticky and will be kept between the free drops. This is one of those features that can be retriggered.

Summary

Cygnus is a classic Elk type of game with sharp graphics, decent payouts and a very interesting approach to the avalanche mechanic which is definitely worth testing. The RTP is set at 96.10% and maximum payout of this highly volatile game is set at x5000 your bet. The game is pretty playable and we liked it. Take it for a test spin and see for yourself.

The Cygnus slot is powered by the impressive ELK Studios which has lately become very popular with their highly volatile releases as well as their slots potential to easily hit x500 – 3000 x wins randomly even during base games. The slot has 6 reels, 4 rows and 4,096 ways to win. You can spin this slot from a minimum of $0.10 – most probably $100 a spin. It uses an Avalanche feature where continuous wins add rows for up to 262,144 ways to win. There are also multiplier wilds that can increase up to 64x. Highly volatile, so be warn of this all ways pays game.

With a mesmerising soundtrack, ELK Studios has a mobile first emphasis meaning Cygnus looks particularly good on smartphone devices and I have noticed this myself. There are 2 pillars, 1 on each side of the reels.


Symbols are in round marble format and include 3 gemstones, a green pelican, blue camel, red cat and a lucky 7 poker chip. The 7-poker chip is by far the highest paying symbol with 3, 4, 5 or 6 in combination giving you 5, 10, 15- or 30-times total bet respectively.

There’s also a wild symbol which substitutes for all symbols except the bonus symbol and multiplier scatter symbol. Being 4,096 ways to win slot game, you need 3 or more of the same symbols across successive reels, beginning from the first ree. When you get a win, a brand-new game mechanic is used where symbols use gravity and slide left and right to bring all symbols into play. This allows for more winning combinations and avalanches. I noticed the 7-poker chip only lands on reel 6 and only move towards reel 1 during the winning combination where the symbols slide to the left.

Cygnus benefits from the Avalanche feature. When you get a winning combination, the responsible symbols explode and disappear. New symbols then fill the empty spaces which gives you another chance to form a win. You can win with a maximum of 8 rows on offer and you could play with up to 262,144 ways to win.

Cygnus slot also comes with a Free Drops Bonus feature. Look out for the bonus symbol which can reach the left pillar (by gravitating) to trigger the feature with 7 free spins. Here, you play with 8 rows and the maximum 262,144 ways to win. The good news is that multiplier scatter symbols are sticky meaning multipliers up to 64x are easier to come by. You can only retrigger the free spins 1 time.

This slot is good as well as very good for wagering. Actually, one of elks only releases in terms of using for wagering and it has the potential. Had a few x100 – 250x hits last week and resulted in a profit. However, the game can give some empty spins when in a bad mood.

First time I play this slot i like it because is nice layout and new mechanics in this slot I am greatly impressed.
I play it from first day of releasing.

DISLIKED

The slot generates a lot really too much dead spins if this is random or I just get unlucky why that happens always i play it a lot I many casinos, also not so high bets to generate this dead spins, in bonus I get two times x32 multiplier but in both times i get after this multiplier 3 or 4 dead spins and bonus ends, it's a just 7 spins and always hit only few symbols in 3-4 spins of 7.
The most bonuses is just money back not so much profit I play a lot and lost so much money last weeks.
This slot having insane potential but shows really rare, to me never :(
