Where to play?
Play N’ Go had its fair share of Aztec-themed slot machine releases for the year thus far with Phoenix Reborn being the developer’s previous release. It’s latest installment titled Contact is another high variance online video slot with an Aztec theme with a tumbling reels feature (cluster mechanic) that’s played on a 5×7 grid.
Winning combos occur when you hit 5 matching symbols known as a cluster; non-winning symbols are removed from the reel set and replaced by new symbols that cascade onto them. A slot machine with a similar structure that comes to mind is NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest.
To add onto the above. Contact has multipliers that shoots up to 30x, a Free Spins bonus that offers 3 free spins from the onset and a Modifier bonus round which we’ll discuss further down in this review.
The 3D slots with plenty of bonus rounds can now be played at our top mobile casinos offering first time depositors a match bonus on deposit. The game is playable from £0.20 to £100 per spin.
The first time we saw the towering reel set, our initial thoughts were “interesting”; the game is further complimented by an audio track that uses instruments that evokes the hardy-gurdy of the ethereal which ebbs and surges with the action on the reels.
The symbols on the reels are flanked by burning skulls; you’ll see turtles, monkeys, birds, jaguars, snakes and then there’s the 4 premium Aztec masks that pays 7.5x your stake for 5 on the reels at the maximum wager.
The theoretical return to player percentage (RTP) of Contact is 96.55%.
With a neat amount of features there’s a progressive multiplier that shakes things up in the main game. So much so that if you hit a winning combination on the second, fourth or sixth row, multiplier wins range from 2x, 3x to 4x.
Streak Free Spins
It’s not really a free spins feature in the true sense of the word because it’s not triggered in the conventional way, i.e, by 3 or more scatter symbols. Instead 3 free spins are awarded when the winning symbols reach the top of the reel set.
Furthermore, as long as matching symbols keep on popping up, winning clusters stick to the reels like glue during the bonus. Payouts increase from 2x, 3x to 5x, however it depends largely on how many rows are filled with winning symbols (2, 3, 4, 5 or 6). One of the three modifiers spring into action when rows 1, 4 or 7 are filled:
On the left side of the grid one of the multiplier blocks is smashed and extra multipliers along with multiplier blocks come tumbling down.
A winning cluster is selected followed by a symbol upgrade.
More Free Spins
An extra free fall is given.
Super Bonus (Free Spins)
The Super Bonus Round is initiated during the base game when the entire grid is filled with winning symbols, 6 free spins are doled out in conjunction with a multiplier win and winning clusters. The multipliers have more bite here to the tune of 30x your stake with a top cash prize of 1,517x your stake that’s up for grabs:
The remainder of the blocks cascade down when three of the multiplier blocks are destroyed to the left of the reels.
The winning clusters are upgraded to the next best symbol.
More Free Spins
Three more free spins are added.
I know we said it before, Contact is an interesting slots from Play N’ Go especially if we take into account its reel set (5×7), cluster pays and bonus rounds. The vendor seems to enjoy releasing high variance slot titles with innovative mechanics of late.
When it comes down to the nuts and bolts the symbols on the reels have that superfluous look while the game itself plays out more like a jig-saw puzzle than a slot machine. We can’t help but feel that Contact railroads you into doing what it wants. Is it a pig with a golden ring in it snout? Only time will tell.
