Dazzle Me is a jewel-themed slot game from NetEnt that launched in 2015. At first glance, the game doesn’t appear to be anything special, which does little to explain why it has remained a favorite at casinos since its release.
We’ve played Dazzle Me before and have our own ideas of why some players love the game (and why others really dislike it.) Read on to find out whether this is an online slot game you should consider playing.
Dazzle Me is a low volatility slot game with a return to player percentage of 96.90%. This means that the game should see you win some payouts – whether small or large – pretty regularly. The relatively high RTP is expected from a NetEnt game.
Usually, games with low volatility have smaller jackpots that don’t go over a few thousand dollars. But that is not the case with Dazzle Me, where the jackpot can reach as much as $15,000 when it has been some time since the last player hit it big.
Dazzle Me has an odd board design. It starts as 5×3 but keeps growing larger with each second reel until it reaches 5×5. As such, the game has 76 paylines that work in some weird ways. Honestly, it took us a while to understand how to get a win in this game.
Outside of this, the game has a bit of a bland theme. We’ve seen many jewel-themed games. For the most part, most try to take a little too much inspiration from the old Bejeweled mobile game. While Dazzle Me doesn’t fall into this trap, we can’t say that the game has the most appealing visuals we’ve ever seen.
There are beautiful colors, and the soundtrack is rather exciting, but we were left with something wanting.
Here is all you need to know about the gameplay in Dazzle Me:
Dazzle Me only uses theme-related symbols. It’s an odd mix of multi-colored jewels and traditional slot symbols. Images you can expect to see zooming across the reels include blue, pink, purple, and green jewels.
Symbols inspired by traditional slots imagery include bells and sevens. There is one bonus symbol – the free spins square. Land at least three in a row, and you will unlock the bonus mode.
The game has a wide bet range, making it an apt game for low and high rollers. It starts at around $0.20 per spin and then caps out at $200. The more you bet, the more you win when you land a winning combination.
However, remember to ensure you always bet within your bankroll. While Dazzle Me usually pays out often enough to help your game sessions last longer, you can spin and hope to recover your full bankroll with a single spin.
Dazzle Me features only one bonus game, which is a free spins mode. You activate it by landing at least three free spins symbols on the reels. Thereafter, the game will award you with 8 free spins. Bear in mind; if you land more symbols on the reels, you earn more freebies. So, four symbols will get you 12 free spins, and five will get you 16.
There is nothing too special about this free spins bonus round. You don’t get a multiplier for your winnings, and you only win on the highest paying line. While this may seem unfair, there is a Linked Reels feature that activates during the round to help make it easier to win.
Dazzle Me Final Rating
Dazzle Me isn’t the best NetEnt slot game we have played, but it isn’t a terrible game. It is a solid option if you are looking for a game to keep you going for a long gaming session. There were several instances where we thought our session was over only for a small to medium size win kept us in the game.
For these reasons, we have decided to give Dazzle Me a rating of 3.5 out of 5. It should keep you spinning for a while if that is what you want.
