About Cygnus

This is another Egypt themed slot, but not like the rest. This game is called Cygnus, which is one of the stars that makes up the Northern Cross constellation - the same constellation that, apparently, is accurately aligned to the pyramids of Giza. This creates a cosmic connection - and this cosmic connection between stars and Egypt is the whole theme of this ELK studios game.

The game looks and sounds classically Egyptian - and is set at the entrance to a pyramid, surrounded by palm trees - and a starry night sky. It is an attractive slot game with potential for attractive wins.

Cygnus slot Gameplay

This is a high volatility game set on 6 reels with 4 rows. In the base game, it offers 4,096 ways to win. In order to win in the base game, you need to land 3 or more symbols on a payline from the 1st row onwards - from left to right.

This game also utilises the Avalanche mechanic, but with a difference. The rows in the game are not completely aligned. When a winning symbol is removed, the gravity mechanic generates a symbols drop - rather like an avalanche from the top of the mountain. The symbols normally fall left to right, but not always - so you are never sure if the symbol you want to fall into a certain space will oblige. Another addition is that when wins are cleared, more rows might be added - up to a total of 8. If all 8 rows are on the screen, this can mean up to 262,144 ways to win.

The highest paying symbol in the game is, strangely enough, the 7 symbol. There are seven other pay symbols in the game. The three lower ones are coloured gems, with the higher paying symbols being the Ibis, Camel, and Cat. These don’t offer huge wins in the base game. The most generous is the 7, which returns 30-times your stake for a set of 6 on a payline.

You can play anywhere between £0.20 to £100 per spin. The slot is available on any device you like - mobile, tablet, or desktop.

Cygnus slot Bonus Features

Aside from the Avalanche reels, the gravity mechanic and extra rows we briefly touched upon, there are other features to look out for:

X Symbol: If the X symbol gets to the bottom row, it engages a multiplier on the right hand pillar. The more X multiplier symbols you get, the higher the multiplier goes - 2x, 4x, 16, 32 up to 56x.

W Symbol: The golden W symbol is the wild, and can substitute for all regular pay symbols to help create winning combinations.

Free Drops Bonus Game: The golden symbol with a red stone is the bonus symbol of the game. Bonus symbols need to move left until they touch the left-hand pillar. When this happens, you trigger 7 free drops.

The bonus game round opens up all 8 available rows, and any multiplier you land will become sticky. The free dropping symbols feature can be retriggered.

Cygnus Review

This is an Egyptian themed slot, but with a difference. In terms of aesthetics, this game stands out compared to similarly themed slots. The Gravity mechanism adds an extra dimension to the well-used avalanche feature. It is a great addition. A maximum win of 5,000 is also always going to be attractive.

The Cygnus slot demonstrates why ELK Studios keep getting more popular. If you like Egyptian themed slots like Book of Wild and Cleopatra, then chances are you will like this one even more.

Cygnus slot FAQs

Q. What is the Gravity Mechanic in Cygnus?

A. The gravity mechanic works with the avalanche feature. However, instead of dropping directly from above, the new symbols fall in the way gravity works - which could be to the left or right - so you never know what symbol will replace the removed winning symbol.

Q. What is the Maximum Win on Cygnus?

A. The maximum win is 5,000 times your stake.

Q. Can I play Cygnus on mobile?

A. Yes, the slot is fully optimised for mobile devices and you can bet on the go.
