Some online slots concentrate exclusively on a theme of luxury and WMS Gaming’s Glitz is one that fits that mould; these are aspirational games which give you a glimpse of the material items you could acquire if only you could hit the big payout. This game also features one of WMS’ interesting reel structures and three ways to trigger the bonus round.
As you can see from the screen shot above, Glitz has five reels and sixty paylines but reels one and two have two rows while reels three, four and five have four rows. Well done if you’re keeping up so far; the symbols are a glittering array of jewels of various colours and a big sparkly ‘G’; there’s a gigantic jewel wild and a golden dollar coin scatter which is one of the triggers for the bonus feature.
Now it’s worth concentrating for a few minutes because there are three different methods of triggering the free spins and none of them are particularly straight-forward. For clarity we’ll call the two left reels the ‘left reels’ and the three others the ‘right reels’.
- Method One – Land four matching symbols in the left reels (including wilds) and three scatter symbols on the right to receive 20 free spins. The symbols on the left will be held for the duration of the spins which means there’s a decent chance of a win on every spin.
- Method Two – Land three scatter symbols on the right reels (and nothing on the left) and you’ll win five free spins; this time you’ll be asked to pick from a selection of jewellery boxes to reveal a symbol which will replace those on the left and be held for the duration of the spins.
- Method Three – Four matching symbols on the left (and nothing on the right) will award five free spins and again, those symbols will be held in place until the end of the spins.
Landing three more scatter symbols on the right during this feature will add five more spins to your total number.
These odd reel structures certainly add something different to the slots experience and it’s a matter of personal taste whether you like them or not. On the whole we do and would recommend this game.
