Red Tiger have taken a long, hard look in the mirror here to bring us their latest game, the Crystal Mirror slot. At first glance it looks pretty run of the mill stuff and you could certainly be forgiven for thinking it offers nothing particularly new. However, it differs from other slots in its mirrored reels design, which may well tickle your fancy for a few spins. Read on for our full Crystal Mirror slot review to learn about the entire range of features and how the game plays.
Crystal Mirror slot offers something slightly new to players with its mirrored reels feature. However, it isn’t all that appealing as a whole and feels like a filler slot from Red Tiger. The rate at which they are currently pumping out new slot games means we’re going to get some gems and some that don’t quite hit the mark. Personally, I would skip Crystal Mirror and take a look at some of the other games on offer from Red Tiger.

Crystal Mirror Slot Stats
How it Pays and Plays
Marked as a medium volatility slot, Crystal Mirror has an RTP of 95.76%, a touch lower than we like to see but also pretty standard for Red Tiger slots.
It comes with 6 reels and 4 rows which make for 20 paylines. This is a little unlike the usual 5 reel slots we are used to seeing and it’s due to the way the mirrored reels work.
Betting ranges from 10p/cents up to £/$/€20 for a single spin.
The maximum win which you can bag from any single spin is a respectable 5,240x, which works out at £/€/$104,800 on the max stake.
The volatility is a medium to high level. As with most Red Tiger slots it can take some doing to bag the free spins bonus round, although the potential rewards are there if you do.
Symbols and Graphics
Low paying symbols consist of card suits, Clubs, Spades, Hearts and Diamonds. They are worth between 0.6x and 1.5x for 6 of a kind.
The premium symbols are all crowns of different designs. The fancier the design the higher the value. They pay from 2.5x to 8x your stake.
Wild symbols are purple vials. These are stacked and can be nudged in and locked in.
Scatter symbols say “Free Spins” on them in fancy lettering and an even fancier mirror type symbol behind them.
As the name “Crystal Mirror” suggests, this slot makes use of mirrored reels. This means that reels 1,2 and 3 are mirrored in 4, 5 and 6. So you’ll get the same symbols on reels 1 and 6, 2 and 5, and also also reels 3 and 4. This can help make for a lot of 6 of a kind wins. Symbols are also stacked, again helping to make for bigger wins.
The super Wilds cover all 4 rows and if you land them partially in view during the base game they can be nudged in. As they are mirrored this really helps the chances of forming winning combos.
Free Spins Bonus
The free spins bonus round is triggered by landing either 4 or 6 Scatter Symbols. You can’t land 5 due to the mirrored nature of the game. You get 10 free spins for 4 Scatters and 15 free spins for 15 Scatters.
During the free spins round Super Wilds will be locked in once they land. If a Super Wild is also only partially in view it will nudge in during the coming spins and lock in place once it is fully visible.
