Once again we are off on search of precious gems to accompany our online slots gameplay and this time it’s the turn of 2By2 Gaming to provide the vehicle. Crystal Gems is the title of this game and it sums up proceedings pretty well; shiny jewels are the oder of the day as well as two sparkly bonus features.
Crystal Gems plays out over five reels and twenty five fixed paylines against a backdrop of what looks like rocks and deep caverns – exactly the sort of place one might find piles of gems lying about.
Five different coloured gems are the main symbols – orange, blue, red, green and white; 10, J, Q, K and A represent the lower values.
The wild symbol is a big ‘Wild’ and there’s also a scatter represented by a mine cart full of gems; this is what you need to activate the main feature. The wild is stacked on the reels which means they appear on top of one another, hopefully providing more winning opportunities.
Those gem-filled mine carts are the key here and landing three or more anywhere in view will reward you with the following:
- Three carts – 8 free spins
- Four carts – 10 free spins
- Five carts – 12 free spins
During the free spins the wild symbol becomes more valuable and every time it contributes to a winning payline it will multiply that win by 2x, 3x or 4x.
The spins can be re-triggered from within the feature by landing three+ more mine carts again.
Mystery Crystal Pick
This is a randomly awarded bonus which can occur at any time; the screen will change to a view of three big gems and all you have to do is pick one of those crystal for a prize. It will be proportional to your stake and then you will be returned to the main game.
This is certainly a pretty basic looking game but that doesn’t mean it’s not enjoyable. We were very rarely losers during our test period but of course that won’t be the same for everyone. The free spins are a little tough to trigger but are valuable when you manage it.
