The Wombat says: Hark, is that the sound of a NetEnt jackpot jingling we can hear? Yes! Why, it’s the Dazzle Me slot, the games maker’s famous gem-themed game. And just like most of NetEnt’s offerings it comes with some exciting and unique features.
Asymmetric reels and Linked Reels are just 2 of the surprises in store for you, and along with 76 different pay-lines. In theory you can win up to 152,000 coins-get ready to spin!
Look and Feel
With the reels covered is colourful gemstones, we couldn’t help but think this game looks a bit like NetEnt’s other popular shiny slot, Starburst. There’s also some tinkling electro chill-out music that gets you in the mood (I thought I was back in Cafe del Mar in Ibiza for a second). The music starts pumping up when the Free Spins take place.
There’s a few Star Trek doors opening and closing as well by the sound of it, or was I imagining that? Whoosh! Pick your coin value and your bet level and off you go!

Dazzle Me Game Play
Meet your symbols, a colourful bunch of green, purple, blue and red gemstones along with golden bells and classic fruity ‘7’ symbol. You’ll also see that the flashy reels aren’t your standard. Although there are 5 reels in the Dazzle Me slot, they are set out asymmetrically.
Instead of the usual 5×3 screen, the reels here are asymmetric and come in different heights: x3 symbols on the first 2 reels, x4 symbols on the next 2 reels and x5 symbols on the last reel. This means the game can pack in a whopping 76 pay-lines. The pay-lines are fixed, you just set the coin level and bet level (from 1 to 10), 20 coins per level.
Sapphires and emeralds are the lowest value symbols paying out 20 coins for 5 in a row, whilst red rubies and the purple stones will scoop you 30 coins. The slot’s traditional fruit machine symbols; the Bell and the 7 are the ones to watch out for, and will pay out 100 or 200 coins each for each bet level. So if you are on level 10, betting 1.00 coins, that’s a 2000.00 pay out if you land five 7’s on a pay-line
Dazzle Me Slot Bonuses

A Gem of a Slot
So what are all those gemstones? It looks like Breakfast at Tiffany’s in there! The Dazzling Wilds are diamonds of course- that’s easy. Then you’ve got red rubies, blue sapphires (the second hardest substance on earth after diamonds, did you know that?) and green emeralds. But what are the purple stones?
We’d guess they are amethysts, the violet quartz we often wrap up for Mrs Wombat at Christmas when we’re feeling a bit short.
I always carry a couple in my pocket.
Dazzle Me Megaways
Like any decent slot game worth its salt, Dazzle Me now has a Megaways version that was launched in 2021. It’s very similar to the original game, but with a modern touch. Net Ent have dropped the Linked Reels feature in the Megaways version and gone ‘all in’ on the Dazzling Wild Reels.
In full Megaways mode, the game can deliver up to to 99,225 Ways to Win with a maximum win of 50,000x your stake. The Megaways version is more volatile as you would expect- we have this game down as medium variance (the original is a low variance game).
On your Mobile
This being a relatively simple game (from a graphics point of view anyway), it should come as no surprise that it looks absolutely stunning on a smartphone, a phablet or a tablet. The mobile version of the game launches as Dazzle Me Touch.
I love the way the game goes full screen- those NetEnt designers are geniuses. Just swipe down to come out of full screen mode and swipe up to blow the screen size up again. You can play the game in portrait mode or landscape mode. We tend to hold our Wombatphone sideways.
There’s also an auto-play option on the Dazzle Me slot where you can set the reels spinning for 10, 25, 50 and even more spins if you want to.
Hit the “Advanced Settings” tab and it will come up even more gizmos, such as Stop on Any Win, Stop if Any Win Exceeds…., Stop if Cash Increase/Decreases by…and so on. Pretty high powered!
Faster than an ostrich in the outback, the Dazzle Me slot’s spins are out of control. And when you trigger the Free Spins round, the game speeds up even further! A fun game that’s easy on the eye, we like the Linked Reels feature best.
Wombat score: 4/5
If you like your traditional symbols, but want a game with all the modern bells and whistles, the Dazzle Me slot should float your boat. It’s diamond!
What is the maximum win on Dazzle Me?
The biggest possible payout is 760x your stake.
How does the Free spins Bonus work?
You will need 3 or more scatter symbols to fire the bonus spins off. That’s the icon that says “Free Spins”! 3, 4, or 5 scatters will give you 8, 12 or 16 free spins respectively.
Plus, in the free spins (and only in the free spins), you’ll come across the Linked Reels feature. These play out on reels 1 through 4. On each spin, identical symbols will land on 2 adjacent reels. Whatever lands on reel 1 will also land on reel 2. And whatever lands on reel 3 will also land on reel 4.
What are Dazzling Wilds Exactly?
This is a random feature in the base game with overlay wild diamonds. Between 1 and 5 reels can fill with wilds which is great for making up winning combos of course.
