Crystal Lotus UK Online Slot
Whenever we bring you one of Eyecon's brand new online slots, we're usually about to tell you about a slot that's full of cute or unusual characters, or piled high with bonus features. Eyecon has a history of creating colorful and charismatic slots, but they shouldn't be pigeon-holed as one trick ponies. Sometimes, they strip everything back to the basics and bring us online slot games in the spirit of simplicity, like their March 2019 release Crystal Lotus.
Crystal Lotus is as simple to explain as it is to play. It's a ‘gems and jewels' themed slot which takes its inspiration from the days when slot games were physical as opposed to digital, but it has some nice flashes of modern animation to put a contemporary spin on the concept. It's also very here-and-now in the way that it assesses paylines; they'll be counted when they appear from right to left as well as the usual left to right.

Graphically, Crystal Lotus is basic and beautiful at the same time, with glowing symbols suspended against the midnight-purple shade of the background. When coupled with the relaxing background music, the slot takes on an almost hypnotic effect. You could probably allow it to put you to sleep if you wanted, but don't. There's money to be won!
With only ten fixed paylines to play for, you'd be right to assume that there are comparatively few basic symbols in the slot. There are a total of seven, not including the one bonus symbol, which we'll come to in a moment. Least valuable of all of them is a purple-and-green jewel, followed by a pink flower, a green flower, a blue starburst, a sunflower with a purple crystal at its center, and then the classic and traditional Lucky 7 and Bar symbols. Bar is the top ranking basic symbol in the slot.
The one bonus symbol is the crystal lotus itself, which is purple in color and performs two functions when it appears, which it can do on any reel other than the first and last ones. Firstly it works as a wild, and it can replace any other symbol to do so, creating winning lines in the process. When it lands, it also expands - and this is when it becomes relevant to discuss the slot’s bonus features!
Crystal Lotus Slot Bonus Features
This slot has been created for the traditional end of the market, so don’t come to it expecting to find multiple bonus games to play for. We have a library of well over 500 slots here at Money Reels, and if you want bonus features you’ll find hundreds of them in there!
The only bonus feature you’ll find in Crystal Lotus is Re-spins, which work hand in hand with the Expanding Wilds. Whenever the crystal lotus wild symbol lands, it expands to fill its whole reel. It will then stay in place for one free spin. The objective with the re-spins is to find another wild symbol, in which case it will also stick in place, and the reels will spin a third time in the hope that you’ll completely fill the second, third and fourth reels with wilds, and achieve a huge payout. If you don’t, whatever you’ve won with however many wilds you’ve found will be tallied up and awarded to you, and the slot will return to the base game.
That’s all there is to Crystal Lotus - a simple base game, a gentle bonus feature and some pretty visuals. The multicolored animations when winning combinations are found are easy on the eye, and the slot will make you feel as relaxed as you possibly can be when you’re playing online slots. It won’t please everybody, but those who don’t like flashing lights, noisy sound-effects and complicated side games should love it.
Crystal Lotus Developer - Eyecon
Eyecon, who is based in Australia, is mostly known for their quirky concepts for online slot games. How many other developers can you think of who'd use ice cream as a theme for designing a slot, as Eyecon did with 99 Time online slot? Their biggest triumph to date has been the creation of the Fluffy Favourites franchise, which started in 2006 and took UK online slots players by storm. Fluffy Favourites uses cuddly toys and childhood games as a theme, striking a nostalgic chord with players and taking off in a way that even Eyecon couldn't have imagined. They've since returned to the theme to create several sequels, and will probably always be better known for that series of slots than anything else they ever do. We also don't think they'll mind if that's the case.
Getting involved in online slots at all was a happy accident for Eyecon. When they formed, their primary interest was video games of the Playstation and X-Box kind. Their horror-themed survival game ‘Gore' was a surprise hit on the internet, but in the process of doing so well online, it opened Eyecon's eyes to how popular the internet had become in a short space of time. With a flash of inspiration, they realized that if there were money to be made online, then casinos would be moving there, and so they altered the course of their business and started creating online slots. At the time, very few people understood the concept of an online slot - let alone its earning potential!
Their first release was Temple of Iris slot game in 2003, and ever since then they’ve been putting out three or four slots a year, showing signs of speeding up a little in the past 24 months. Eyecon may not be as prolific as some other developers, and they may not have the same flair for graphics as others either - but they know how to make an online slot fun to play, and that counts for far more.
