If you like a little bit of bling in your life, the Dazzle Me online pokie from NetEnt might be the perfect game for you. The game is literally filled with jewels in various shapes, sizes and colours, while the traditional slot sevens and bells also make an appearance too. Dazzle Me has an unusual 3-3-4-4-5 reel set up, making for an even more unusual 76 win-lines. The reason for the unique reels soon becomes clear in the bonus feature.
Dazzle Me from NetEnt is a fun and fast-paced pokie which offers up incredible winning chances during the main feature. Randomly wild reels can bring you big wins on any spin. Here are the highlights of this sparkling medium variance slot:
The first of the two main features in the game is awarded completely randomly. During the game you won’t find wild symbols in play as standard – they won’t appear on the reels as they usually would.
However, the ‘Dazzling Wild Reels’ feature adds stacked diamond wilds onto random reels. The feature can fill just a single reel with wilds, or you can be lucky and fill more than one reel. It is possible that you could fill all five reels with wilds too, making for a maximum win on every one of the 76 win-lines.
A blue ‘Free Spins’ symbol appears on all five of the reels. Land 3 anywhere and you’ll be awarded with 8 free spins, while 4 scatters award 12 free spins. Land the maximum 5 free spins symbols and you’ll have 16 free spins to enjoy.
During the free spins you’ll find linked reels in play. This means that two adjacent reels on each of the free spins will show exactly the same symbols. This will obviously mean that wins are easier to come by with all of those matching symbols. The best-case scenario will see the linked reels stacked with the same symbol, ensuring that wins can be yours across a number of win-lines.
It’s also possible that all four are linked. Reels 1 and 2 can be linked alongside reels 3 and 4 – line them up with matching symbols and you could be looking at some incredible wins.
The one downside to the free spins is that the feature cannot be retriggered. While retriggers are nice, the lack of free spins symbols on the reels means there are more ‘paying’ symbols in the game, ensuring that wins are more likely.
While Dazzle Me is filled with gems, the highest paying symbols are the traditional ones. The red seven is the highest paying of all, worth 200 coins for the maximum five in a row. The bell is the second highest paying symbol, worth 100 coins as a top prize.
An octagonal red gem, a purple rectangle, a green opal and a triangular blue gem complete the reels, paying between 30 and 20 coins.
The wilds from the ‘Dazzling Wild Reels’ will substitute for any other symbol in the game apart from the free spins scatter.
Dazzle Me features a bright blue backdrop where a series of dazzling lights flicker on and off in the background, giving the game a vibrant feel. The unusual reel set up gives the design a distinctive feel, increasing in size from left to right, with a hint of 3D when you reach the final reel. Each of the reels has a pale backing, ensuring that the colourful array of gems stand out. The addition of the sevens and the bells adds a retro feel, while the game has an easy listening tune playing throughout.
If you like pokies with a difference, this NetEnt designed game could be the perfect choice. That unique reel setup ensures that every spin has a different feel to it. The addition of ‘Dazzling Wild Reels’ ensures a big winning spin is always possible (especially when more than one reel is turned wild). The free spins feature has an original feel, with those linked reels and more winning potential. While gems-based online pokies are nothing new, Dazzle Me is different enough to be worth taking for a spin.
