Let's celebrate! ELK Studios are back with a sequel to the original Cygnus, which was met overwhelming supportive comments when it was released back in late 2019. This game was packed with features and huge winning potential, and the second slot in this series doesn't fail to follow in the same way.
The word Cygnus refers to the Northern Cross constellation, containing the brightest star in the sky. ELK Studios liked this principle and thus has made a game that outshines the competition. They have had big hits before with games such as The Grand Galore and Zulu Gold, Cygnus has some serious favour.
With Cygnus 2, you can play with 0.20 per spin, all the way up to 100.00, making this slot suitable for everyone. The maximum win is an incredibly exciting 50,000x your bet size. Yes, you read that correctly. For anyone that wants to spin on the maximum bet size, you could be taking home a mouth-watering 5 million.
This game also has an avalanche feature, so that matching symbols disappear after paying out. Symbols above will then fall, giving you the opportunity to match even more. Additionally, a fresh set of symbols will be dropped until there are no more matches. The gravity mechanic in this game ensures that icons are spread evenly, making even more room for new ones to fall into place!
In Cygnus 2 the symbols are similar to the original but have been modified and reskinned for a more modern look. There are sapphires, emeralds, and rubies starting as the the lowest paying symbols. All of the aforementioned gems pay the same, with a small 0.2x reward for matching 6.
Then there is a scorpion, followed by a goat and a lion. Premiun icon symbols will be obvious to CA players because they have golden edges. Finally, there is an all-gold sun, which is the top-paying symbol in the game. If you match 6 suns you will recieve 30x your bet.
One feature within Cygnus 2 happens within the base game. This is the Rising Multipliers and has the potential to supercharge your winnings. When a multiplier symbol is dropped into the game and reaches column 1, it will be added to the win multiplier for each combination until the end of the round. These symbols can award 2x, 4x, 5x, or 10x your winnings!
Moving on to the main bonus, it is activated in a similar way to the multiplier mentioned above. Once the bonus symbol is on the board, getting it to the far left of your screen will trigger seven free spins. The bonus mode is similar to the base game, but with one major difference: Any multipliers that are awarded will stay in place, not reset between spins.
Essentially, this sequel performs quite well. While Cygnus 2 does have some home comfort symbols and a consistent feel, it has more than enough new features to keep punters on their toes. And we can't forget how tempting the 50,000x maximum win is.
