Northern Cross is a prominent astronomical asterism in the celestial sphere in the northern hemisphere. It closely resembles the constellation Cygnus the swan and consists of the brightest stars: Deneb, Sadr, Gienah, Delta Cygni and Albireo. Although Deneb has removed 700 million light-years from the Earth, the exact alignment with the pyramids of Giza in Egypt is undeniable. ELK Studios’ Cygnus slot is based on Northern Cross or Cygnus and can be played from December 3, 2019.
How does the Cygnus slot machine work?
Just like the Voodoo Gold, Ecuador Gold and the Tahiti Gold slot, Cygnus is also started on a playing field of six reels, four rows and 4096 ways to win. Through ELK Studios’ Avalanche mechanism, winning symbols will explode and new symbols will fall to fill the empty positions. When this happens one extra row will also be added. The playing field can expand in this way to six reels, eight rows and 262144 ways to win. The game can be played on any device from £/$/€0.10 and a maximum of £/$/€100 per spin and an RTP of 96.1%. The game also has Scatter symbols on which a multiplier can come. How? We explain that below as well as the Free Drops Bonus Game.
As soon as a Scatter symbol reaches the bottom row, it gets a multiplier. Every time a new Scatter symbol reaches the bottom row, the multipliers of all Scatter symbols are doubled. A total of six Scatter symbols can land on the bottom row, which means the multiplier can go up to 64x. The multiplier is applied to all winning combinations of the relevant spin.
Free Drops Bonus Game.
When a Bonus symbol reaches the left pillar, the Free Drops Bonus Game is activated. The player then receives seven so-called “Free Drops”. These are played on all eight rows and the Multiplier Scatters keep the entire feature in position. Extra Free Drops can also be won.

Our Gygnus video slot review.
There is nothing new abou ELK Studios’ Cygnus slot. We have seen the playing field and the features before. It is a shame that ELK Studios often use the same mechanism and formula. It seems that this software provider is constantly revamping its existing slots and coming up with a new story. We therefore give 2.2 out of 5 stars.
