Nowadays slots adopt all kinds of themes to sell to the market. Egyptian-themed, Asian-themed, animal-themed, sports-themed, and many more types of themes are used to make a slot more attractive. It can be argued that the purity of the classic slots has become a bit lost with all these new themes. Swedish slots developer NetEnt are keen to change that.
Dazzle Me is an innovative 5 reel, 76 payline slot that has a reel layout of the first two reels being three rows, the next two reels being four rows, and the final reel being five rows. It has a classic slots theme so is certainly one to offer nostalgia to the purists.
Symbols across the reels include the number 7, a bell, and red, purple, green, and blue gems. The reels are set against the sparkly backdrop giving you no doubt that this slot is all about diamonds and gem stones.
The Wilds are Diamonds
The Wild symbol is represented by the diamond icon. If you manage to hit this symbol across the reels then it will substitute for all other symbols, except for the Free Spins symbols, to complete any potential winning combinations on the reels.
Trigger up to 12 Free Spins
The Free Spins symbols are the key to triggering the free spins bonus round. If you hit three of these on the reels then you will be rewarded with 8 free spins. If you manage to hit four of them across the reels then you will receive 12 free spins. If you are fortunate enough to hit five of the symbols on the reels then you will win 16 free spins.
Randomly Trigger Dazzling Wild Reels
There are a couple of other cool features on this slot. The first is the Dazzling Wild Reels. These can be randomly triggered during the main base game. When triggered, 1-5 reels will randomly turn completely Wild for a spin.
Win Bigger with Linked Reels
The second neat feature is the Linked Reels. This can appear during the free spins bonus round only. This is where at the beginning of each free spins two sets of reels on that spin will become “linked”. This is where they have identical symbols on each set of reels. Reels 1-4 can appear as Linked Reels. The right reel is a copy of the left reel so reel 1 is linked to reel and/ or reel 3 is linked with reel 4.
As per usual, I entered this review with a fair amount of scepticism. NetEnt have not produced many of my favourite slots over the past year or so and it felt like this was another filler slot until their next branded release hits the market. I wrote it off as another low key Sparks slot or similar to the developer’s Neon Staxx slot. I am pleased to say I was surprised. There are some decent bonus features here and the combination of the randomly triggered Dazzling Wild Reels and the Linked Reels works really well. I’m not convinced this slot has longevity but it is certainly entertaining in the short term at the very least.
