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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
