Cloud Quest is a Play ‘N Go powered slot game with 5 reels and 10 paylines. Appearing on a 5×5 grid, you can play from 10p to £100 a spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices. The sky’s the limit in this game as levelling up can be very lucrative.
Graphically superb, it’s all about super heroes who are Spandex-clad and aim to defeat the menacing monsters that threaten the metropolis in the mist. Look out for the golden shield which is the wild and can substitute for any other symbol to help you win big. A wild will always replace the middle symbol in a winning 3-symbol combination to further boost your winning potential.
In the base game – look out for Super Power symbols which trigger certain sections of the Super Power wheel – here you can win a free re-spin with 1 of 4 special super powers to enhance your winnings. The more Super Power symbols in your winning combination, the great number of selections on the wheel will be illuminated.
If you were to get 3 Super Power symbols, only 1 section of the wheel is activated. With 4, 2 sections of the wheel are activated. If you managed to get 5 Super Power symbols, 3 sections of the wheel will be activated. Then, if the pointer lands on an activated section, a free re-spin is granted. The 4 different super powers are described as follows:
Five of Fortune: all winning combinations in the re-spin are subject to a 5x multiplier
Emblem of Endurance: 3 enduring wilds fall in on 2 different positions on the grid – these wilds remain unless you get a combination full of wilds.
Mark of Multitude: extra wild symbols are generated from winning combinations. The middle symbol in a combination of 3 matching symbols will become a wild. If you have a 4 symbol winning combination, the 2 middle symbols become wild. If you get 5 matching symbols, 3 alternating symbols turn into wilds.
Scatter of Success: all symbols can become scatters to give you extra wins. Up to 3 sections of the Super Power wheel can be activated by scattered Super Power symbols during this feature. Wild symbols can fall in the initial drop with no new wilds appearing after you have a winning combination.
Before each spin plays out, a row in the grid is designated as the Bonus row – if all 5 symbols in this chosen row are cleared, you will trigger the Free Spins feature where you are randomly awarded between 5 and 20 free spins. These will playout on a 3 reel, single-line slot machine. If you manage to clear all 25 symbols in the grid, the kingdom will honour you with a special cash prize.
Now, your aim is to defeat the enemy monster on each of the 5 different stages with your free spins. To defeat each monster and subsequently move on to the next stage, you need to get a certain number of winning combinations (which varies on each stage).
If you get a combination of 3 bonus marks, you will defeat the monster instantly! When you take down a monster, you will move on to the next stage and gain 3 additional free spins – with 5 stages, there’s a further 12 free spins on offer. The prizes in each stage increase with the 5th and final monster granting you a 100 times stake bonus is you defeat him – in addition, you will get 2 times your stake for every free spin you haven’t used.
I found Cloud Quest to be a medium variance slot game with a whopping 2,500 times your stake available to be won. The Free Spins feature is where the big wins will occur though with plenty of free spins on offer and a cash prize available if you defeat all 5 monsters.
Graphically, Cloud Quest looks stunning with this epic fantasy-themed offering being the best Play ‘N Go has produced so far. Variance is in the middle, as described above, so offers a nice balance between big wins and good gameplay. I would also recommend you try Wild North and Golden Legend from Play ‘N Go which are superb.
