Contact-Slot-Big-Image-min-min

The tribal theme continues with this new slot from Playn GO, but thats where the similarities with its counterparts end. This has got to be my favorite slot to date, and with super high volatility, a payout rate of 96.55% and big wins working with frequent multipliers, I just know that I wont bet alone. Slots have a reputation for being dull and repetitive, Contact has taken that stereotype and spun it on its head, working more like a game of Mayan Tetris, and keeping you on the edge of your seat with each spin.

Exciting gameplay with a fresh take on standard slots.

Theres big money to be won with generous special features.

Once you hit one special feature its relatively easy to trigger multiple others.

Dead spins are a thing here, so dont expect action with every whirl.

The game works more like Tetris than a standard slot, which isnt everybodys cup of tea.

The slot isnt highly animated so you may be a little bored if you prefer big visual stimulation.

Theme and Background

Enter the ancient Mayan ruins of old Mexico. Here youll encounter charmed rock carvings, mythical creatures and some seriously impressive payouts. When I settled in to play a few rounds of Contact, I was sceptical to say the least. The slot name didnt exactly sell itself and I was so over the whole aztec, inca, tribal nonsense. But in the end I had to eat my words because despite the overdone theme, the game has to be the best designed Ive ever come across.

The graphics are beautiful and detail oriented, somebody definitely did some research there. There are nine carvings in total, so theres a lot of variance in terms of matching up, but this doesnt make wins difficult (more on this below). The soundtrack is excellent, I didnt once want to hit mute, which is impressive for me. The low, dulcet tones are overlaid with the occasional tribal riff which breaks things up nicely.

Contact also works with a really nice colour palette, thats very easy on the eye. Ive played slots which have made a very strong attempt to blind me so this was a sincerely welcome change. Set within the ancient ruins of a Mayan temple, this slot has resurrected creativity within the industry, bringing clever slant to a tired scene.

Gameplay

Playing Contact may seem a little odd initially, as it doesnt require the usual line up of matching symbols. Instead, you need to collect clusters of matching blocks. The non-matching blocks will disappear and the remaining will clunk down to the bottom of the grid, where your winnings are tallied. There are also many special features to get your head around.

Heres the breakdown:

Contact Slot - High Paying Symbol 2

Win Multiplier

This means that if you fill the entire 2nd, 4th or 6th row with winning symbols, a multiplier of 2x, 3x or 4x respectively will be applied.

When you succeed in filling out either of these rows, youre also awarded a free spin and one of three Special Features, which will be applied at the end of that individual free spin.

Contact Slot - High Paying Symbol 1

Bonus Round & Super Bonus Round

Trigger this when you reach all the way up to the top row with winning symbols. If you manage to fill the entire grid with winning symbols youll trigger the Super Bonus Round.

Each bonus round kicks off with three free spins, and the super bonus round with six free spins.

During both these, matching clusters will remain on the screen through to the next spin, increasing your chances of filling the grid with matching symbols significantly. If you fill rows 2, 3, 5 or 6 during the Bonus Round with matching symbols youll be awarded a win multiplier of x2, x3, x4 or x5 respectively. But if you fill rows 1, 4 or 7 with winning clusters, youll also be awarded one of the following three Special Features.

Contact Slot - Block Destroyer

Block Destroyer

When you trigger this feature it will destroy three of the multiplier blocks rather than just one. It also increases the multiplier up to 30x that could mean some seriously big cheese!

Contact Slot - Symbol Upgrade

Symbol Upgrade

This feature will literally upgrade all the winning clusters to the next high value symbol in line.

Contact Slot - Extra Free Spins

Extra Free Spins

Land this feature and youll score yourself three free spins, which means even more chances to trigger these valuable bonus features.

Payouts and Wagering

Contact Slot - Paytable

High variance/high reward is a feature thats become a common trademark of Playn GO slots and Contact is no exception. As a high volatility slot, youre unlikely to pick up small winnings on every other spin as you would do with some other low volatility slots. Contact is all about the big wins, and most of these will stem from the Bonus and Super Bonus Rounds. Here youll be in with a chance to trigger the Block Destroyer special feature which will award you a 30x multiplier that can lead to wins of 1,517.5 times your total bet.

Playing Contact can get a little bit distracting as youre inadvertently drawn to the desire to watch as many random matching clusters form as possible. But what you should really be looking out for is a cluster that builds all the way up to the top multiplier. Crack this feature and youre golden, as youll be rewarded with a bonus round that could inundate you with a myriad of free spins and modifiers. At this point youd have to be pretty unlucky not to wind up on the receiving end of a nice little payout that the ancient Mayans would have traded all their gold for.

Final Verdict

Contact

88%

First off I really think this slot ought to have been called Cluster. This would have gone a lot further toward hinting at the way the game works. But semantics aside, Contact is hard to beat in terms of design and functionality. Theres something very satisfying about watching the blocks line up and clunk down. When they start to stick and stack up its downright exciting. The arrangement gives you frequent opportunity for wins, both big and small. Contact offered something fresh and non-monotonous with its smart design and solid opportunities for bonus rewards.
