This Slot Makes Retro Seem Like New
Dazzle Me is a 5-reel, 76-fixed payline, online video slot which refurbishes retro, 3-reel slot elements and shines them up with a modern twist. The 5 reels each contain a different number of symbols. The first 2 reels have only 3 symbols, reels 3-4 have 4 symbols and reel 5 has 5 symbols giving the slot an interesting appearance. The background is animated with what appears to be spots of light sparkling through a gemstone. Disco music pulses throughout gameplay. Dazzle Me can be played online from any desktop or mobile device.
Dazzle Me shows values for Total Bet, Balance and Win along the bottom of the slot screen just beneath the reels. Choose a Bet Level (1-10) together with a Coin Value (0.01-2.00) to select a Total Bet ranging from 20p-£200 at Royal Panda. The Total Coin Bet only requires the adjustment of the Bet Level for a range of 20-200 coins. Paytable values are listed in coins only and remain fixed despite changes in bet selection. Dazzle Me auto-calculates Coin Wins by multiplying the Bet Level by the Paytable value.
This online slot has relatively few symbols when compared with most modern, slots. It only has 8 symbols total. There are 2 special symbols including a Diamond Wild and Free Spins Scatter symbol. The Wild plays a key role in the Dazzling Wild Reels Feature and can replace any symbol except for the Free Spins symbol. The Scatter symbol can trigger a round of Free Spins. Dazzle Me has 6 regular symbols with 2 high-paying (Red-7 & Bell) and 4 low-paying Gemstones. Listed in order of highest to lowest value, they include: Red-7, Bell, Ruby, Amethyst, Peridot and Aquamarine.
Despite the uniqueness of Dazzle Me’s row & reel design, this online slot utilizes left to right gameplay commonly used among slots. Get 3+ low-paying or 2+ high-paying symbols along a payline, starting with reel 1, to win. Coin Wins flash in the center of the screen, and Cash Wins are listed along the very bottom.
To profit along a single payline, get 3+ Red-7s, 4+ Bells, or 5+ of any regular symbol. Multiple wins on differing paylines work to keep the bankroll healthy and maintain that high RTP average. There are 19 symbol spaces across the reels setting Dazzle Me apart from other 5-reel slots, most of which possess a traditional, 3-row, 5-reel design with 15 symbol spaces. This design, combined with 86 paylines, ensures some very profitable wins throughout Main gameplay.
The highest paying symbol of the slot is the Red-7 which shows a value of (200, 30, 12, 1) giving Dazzle Me the potential to award up to 2000 coins along a single payline and 152,000 coins per spin. In currency, that amounts to a potential £304,000 in cold, hard cash each spin!
NetEnt slots offer an Autoplay that allows players to choose from a range of 10-1,000 consecutive spins. Advanced settings allow players to set Autoplay to stop on any regular win, if Free Spins is awarded, if a single win exceeds a set amount or if cash balance increases/decreases by a set amount.
Game Settings include: set the spacebar to spin (if playing from a desktop), activate Left Hand Mode (if playing from a mobile device), activate/deactivate Quickspin and toggle sound on/off.
Dazzle Me Bonus Features
Dazzling Wild Reels: 1-5 reels can randomly turn Wild during gameplay.
