Doing the same thing over and over again sort of gets old. So was the line of thought when Quickspin created Crystal Prince, a slot that tries to capture the festivity mood without going for the hackneyed Santa theme. It is a welcome change that sees all punters bask in the liberality of a Nordic prince who the slot is named after.

Slot’s Design, Basic Rules, & Algorithm Stats
Launching Crystal Prince, you get what you would expect from a typical winter-themed slot. A scene reminding you of Walt Disney’s Frozen Movie backdrops a playing area populated by crystals in 6X4 formation. A big high-five to the design team since that’s not a far-fetch, given the title of the slot.
As for the algorithm, Crystal Prince runs on one of the friendliest algorithms we have seen all year. It’s that Ellen’s 12 days of Giveaways-feeling all the way, thanks to the super-combo of stats, starting with great potential made possible by expanding ways. More on that later. There is also an above-average 96.04% RTP rating and medium volatility setting, which collaborates with a high hit frequency to ensure that things are ticking along nicely throughout the session.
On the paytable, crystals of varying sizes and shapes offer up prizes of up to 0.8X as regulars, which are the most recurrent symbols in the game, unfortunately. Less recurrent is the prince that’s branded the high win symbol that offers up rewards that range from 0.4-2X for three to five of-a-kind.
Fancy the kind of slots where each win triggers the primary feature? If yes, Crystal Prince is just the slot for you. In it, each winner increases the grid height by one row, just like snow falls from the skies. The expansions only come to a halt when the added row fails to result in a winning connection.
Winning connections are way easier to land here since the row expansion increases the winning ways from an already impressive 4098 to a hard-to-believe 262144 on a fully maxed out 6X8 grid.
Break the Blizzard Seal
A reward of 1-3 wilds with X2 or X3 modifiers topped by activation of the blizzard mode awaits anyone who manages to get to the fourth row.
The Blizzard Mode
Here, all the winning symbols, wilds, scatters, and all high win symbols gravitate to the bottom as new ones fill up the empty spaces, potentially forming a new winner. Of course, this only stops when there are no more winning combinations to continue the chain reaction.
Scatters can also land alongside the regulars to award eight, ten, fifteen, and twenty free spins for three, four, five, and six appearances. One to four substituting wilds that could have multipliers land at the start of each, making it easier to land winners. Also, each scatter-dual that lands here will award three additional free spins.
If you find the bonus round rather fruitful and entertaining for you, there is always the option of going the non-conventional way using bonus buy. 60X the bet is charged for three to six scatter appearances.
Crystal Prince — Our Verdict
Crystal Prince captures this season of sharing not only with its winter theme but also with its generosity. Wins are not hard to come by, making it a slot that favors everyone, including the thrill-chasers who will be in it for the big win potential brought about by the expanding ways.
