The Dazzle Me slot from NetEnt comes with a fast paced base game plus a totally different set of reels on the Bonus game to keep the game play interesting.
And that’s before you even get to the smart Linked Reel bonus that ups the winning ante.
Dazzle Me is a 76 pay-line slot from NetEnt themed on shiny gems. The 7 symbol is the highest paying base symbol. The minimun bet starts at 0.20 coins per spin, up to a maximum of 20.00.
The reels are arranged in an asymmetrical design (3-3-4-4-5), and this game has a Free Spins bonus round, a random wild bonus and Linked Reels in the Free Spins round. It was launched in August 2015, but still looks great on a mobile.
The graphics are ‘dazzling’, but as the game has been around a bit you might find them a bit dated, especially if you are used to playing games like Finn’s Golden Tavern or Superstars slot both later NetEnt titles. We prefer the term classic! It’s easy to understand and simple to play, which is just as well, because the game play is fast and furious.
The Dazzle Me slot is set against a sequined background with the icons made up of sparkling gems: Bobby Dazzlers, you might say!
The music is a jazzy number but it doesn’t distract you from the spinning fun. This bright, feel good slot reminds me of Eyecon’s Heartburst slot – another colourful game.
Dazzle Me Slot Game Play
The first thing you notice about the Dazzle Me slot is that the reels have a unique lay out. While this game is a 5 reel game with 76 pay-lines, the first two reels are only three rows high, while reels 3 and 4 are four rows high. The fifth and final reel is five rows high. We call it an asymmetric slot in the trade.
The best two icons of the game are the lucky number 7 and the golden bell, those fruit machine favourites. The lower value icons are the dazzling gems of the game’s title and include a ruby, emerald, pink sapphire and blue sapphire.
The big diamond is the star of course as this is the game’s Wild which substitutes for all icons except the Scatter which is an icon with Free Spins emblazoned across it.
Dazzling Wild Reels
The Dazzling Wild Reels bonus can trigger at random in the base game. This Dazzling Wild Reel is a boon because it’s an overlay reel which is entirely covered in blue diamond Wilds.
Away from the base game there is a further bonus feature….
Free Spins are triggered by dropping three, four or five Scatters onto the reels which will award you 8, 12 or 16 free spins respectively.
While you’re enjoying your Free Spins there is also a Linked Reels feature in play. One pair of reels – either 1 and 2 or 3 and 4 will become linked which can help you make wins. The right side of the paired reels mirrors the the adjacent reel to make matching, money making symbol combinations.
