Another Stunner from Play’n GO
Cloud Quest’s backdrop features a city in the sky creating a sci-fi adventure theme to the game. Play’n GO has done a brilliant job of combining elements of fantasy RPG gaming with slot gameplay and design. The main characters include a mysterious wizard and two warriors with anime clothing, hair and weaponry. They all lend an air of adventure and danger to the game. The soaring background instrumentals create an atmosphere of adventure and the promise of discovery. Who knows what new challenge or reward the next spin will bring?
The 5×5 grid design allows for a 3-5 symbol win anywhere on the grid vertically, horizontally or diagonally. In the event of a win, the winning combinations disappear and new symbols appear until no more wins are achieved. There is an exciting chance to win a special Cloud Quest Jackpot of £20,000 if all the symbols disappear due to multiple winning combos and the maximum bet is selected (if the min is selected, the jackpot is £50.00).
There are 10 Betting Options with a minimum bet of 0.10p and maximum bet of £40.00 at Vera&John. Some might find the max off putting, but this range appeals to many players’ budgets which is brilliant. Keep in mind that, the potential for winning combinations is virtually limitless which makes up for the low max.
There are some interesting special symbols to keep an eye out for. One is the Power Stone symbol that goes toward filling the Super Power Wheel. Depending on how full the wheel gets, Super Powers can be triggered along with a re-spin. Wilds can replace any symbol on the board. Regular symbols in order of highest value to lowest are the Red Hero, Green Hero, Purple Hero, Sword, Daggers, Scepter, Shield, Potion, and Spell book.
Value of symbols vary with Cloud Quest depending on the bet selected. The values in the table below show the values for the maximum bet of £40.00. If you want to see the values for each of the other bet options, simply click the Paytable button in this online slot for further information.
