NetEnt has released yet another crowd-pleaser with Dazzle Me. Dazzle me is a 5-reel video pokie with 76 paylines.
It has a slightly unusual layout with shorter reels on Reels 1 and 2, and a longer reel on Reel 5, however, it’s easy to get used to and a refreshing take on the standard pokie.
Dazzle Me is reminiscent of Starburst and Twin Spin – a simple, modern twist on the classic pokie with a slick theme and plenty of wins to keep players going.
Payouts tend to be small, but the wild reels and linked reel features will bump up your wins.
To get rolling with this NetEnt video pokie, choose your Coin Value, which from 0.01 to 2.0. Then, choose your Level, which goes from 1 to 10.
Each level is 20 coins. After that, press the Start button – that’s the round button in the middle of the menu bar at the bottom of the screen.
When it feels right, you can activate Auto Play, which is left to the Start button, and choose how many spins you want Dazzle Me to spin by itself.
In Auto Play, there are advanced settings where you can choose to stop the game if you win, if you get free spins, or if your cash increases or decreases by a certain value.
While Dazzle Me’s layout is different from other pokies, the game still functions with paylines – all 76 of them – and you’ll get used to the different length reels in the blink of an eye.
Dazzle Me starts at just $0.20 per bet and can go up to an unbelievable $400 per bet if you go for the maximum on everything.
We don’t really recommend anyone going for the max bet, the range of options in the coin size and levels lets you adjust your bet size for both casual play and for high roller kicks.
Theoretically, the pokie has a payout of 96.90%. A bit like Starburst, Dazzle Me as a low volatility game, which means payouts lean on the small but frequent end.
The jackpot in Dazzle Me is relatively small. Spinning 5 Sevens – the highest value symbol – on a payline will land you 200 coins, but with 76 paylines activated by default, you can be looking at winning 600 coins per win. We’ve won 583 coins on a spin, and frequently see players winning in in the 300 and 400 range.
Dazzle Me looks like a contemporary and spiced up version of the fruit machine. You have the traditional Seven and the Bell symbols, along with juicy gems and emeralds.
Fans of Twin Spin will find Dazzle Me familiar in the pokie’s suave and slightly space-age feel. This is an exceptionally smooth spinning slot with the mellow sound of bells and whistles in the background.
Beyond a default of 76 paylines on an unusual grid, Dazzle Me also charms players with some features to increase their wins.
Dazzling Wild Reels: At any point during the main game, reels 1 and 5 can turn into Dazzling Wild Reels – in plain English, this means that all the symbols on these reels are wilds and can be substituted for any other symbol, other than the Free Spin symbol, to complete a payline.
And with the sheer number of paylines activated even on just the minimum bet, you can be looking at a lot of extra wins here.
Free Spins: When you spin a minimum of 3 Free Spin symbols, you will enter the free spin mode, with the following number of free spins:
3 free spin symbols: 8 free spins
4 free spin symbols: 12 free spins
5 free spin symbols: 16 free spins
Note that you cannot win more free spins during the Free Spins mode.
Linked Reels: During the Free Spins mode, reels from 1 to 4 turn into linked reels, making an identical copy on the next reel. So reel 2 would become the same as reel 1, and reel 3 and 4 would be the same.
Dazzle Me is a low key video pokie that’s great for casual play. It’s like the perfect cross between Starburst and Twin Spin – you get a low volatility game with frequent payouts, and fast spinning linked reels. Sure, you’re not going to get super rich playing Dazzle Me, but the entertainment value here is high.
