Where to play?
Net Entertainment released another cracker jack of a 3D slots: Dazzle Me. It comes with a whopping 76 paylines and 5 reels. To be honest I wasn’t really impressed by the game graphics and animations but decided to give it a twirl simply because it’s a NetEnt slots. Incidentally this is the first time I’ve ever come across a slots machine that features 76 paylines.
The theme of the slots is all about glitzy gemstones and their payouts. To a certain extend I don’t get it but then again maybe I missed something. The payout ratio is 96% and it offers a total jackpot payout of 152,000 coins when the linked reels feature kicks in. Dazzle Me was released in August 2015. The game will appeal to desktop and mobile players. Before you start playing for real cash take it for a spin or two in the ‘free mode’ first. In descending order the highest paying icons on the reels during the main game are the 7’s, the bell, pink, purple, green and blue gemstones.
I played the game at CasinoLuck with a bankroll of £160 using Neteller as a deposit method. My average bet per spin was £4 (40 spins). I experienced a huge win of £180 when I hit 5 green coloured gems. My initial bankroll shot up to £340 (£180 profit). I cashed out £200 and played with £140. I reduced my average bet to £2 per spin (70 spins) yet I could not trigger the free spins. Two things struck me about this slots. The first, it pays out huge and the second it is volatile. After my spectacular win I experienced 8 dry spins in a row. The game just seemed to have clammed up on me. I experienced a few wins but not near as spectacular. Also, the reels spin at a blistering pace so you might want to keep a close eye on your bankroll.
The minimum bet per spin is £0.2 up to £400. Dazzle Me can be played with limited bankrolls and earmarked for high rollers. Make sure that you selected the right amount per spin. It must correlate with your bankroll. If your budget is £100, wager up to £1 which gives you 100 spins. If you’ve made a substantial profit cash out 70% of your winnings and play with the rest.
- Dazzling Wild: The blue gemstone is the wild icon. It substitutes all the other symbols on the reels except the free spins icons. The Dazzling Wild randomly appears during the base game. Reels 1 to 5 can be turned into Dazzling Wilds. If they appear you’ll win a substantial amount of cash.
- Free spins: When 3 or more free spins symbols appear any where on the reels the free spins bonus game is triggered. When 3 of them appear you’ll receive 8 free spins. For 4 you’ll receive 12 free spins and for 5 you’ll get 16 free spins. If you’re lucky enough to trigger the free spins you’ll be in the pound seats. Based on my own playing experience it’s no easy feat.
- Linked Reels: As is the custom with NetEnt it keeps on bringing something new to the table. In this case the ‘linked reels’ feature. It only appears during the free spins bonus game. Identical reels appear adjacently on any of the 4 reels at the start of each spin. Reel 1 is linked to reel 2 and reel 3 to 4. Strictly speaking the right reel is a copy of the left reel.
Dazzle Me does not offer much in the graphic department. It’s similar to Startburst and to Twin Spin. During the base game you can win up to 40 times your stake and during the free spins you can win up to 760 times. It’s pretty evident that the big money can be won during the free spins and why it’s so difficult to trigger. Entertainment wise it’s not the best NetEnt game I’ve played but I rate it high in terms of payouts. After all I did manage a win of £200.
