- but why not try one of these?
Here’s something a little different – a pachinko-style game which may not be an online slot but it is good fun. It’s developed by the UK-based Touchstone Games and it’s available on Odobo’s software platform. Pachinko is of course the traditional Japanese mechanical game in which balls are fired into machine in the hope of triggering bonuses or winning cash.
Lucky Gems is a reasonably faithful version of the original game as you can see from the screenshot above; all the action takes place in the central area and the paytable is to the left. The aim is to fire twelve balls into the mechanism and hope that they land in the slots marked with a jewel or special symbol.
Select your stake then just click the big green arrow (or use the Autoplay button) to fire the twelve balls; they all fly in together and will land in one of the slots on the bottom (marked with a jewel or a blank) or in one of the three higher slots.
Landing in a slot marked with a jewel will fill up a corresponding jewel space on the paytable; complete a whole set and the prize is yours. The paytable is reset after each spin.
Two of the higher slots are marked with a sun and if a ball lands there it will increase the multiball total by one – you can see this at the top of the screen. The feature is triggered randomly or if the total reaches fifty at which point all those collected balls will be pinged onto the table, hopefully triggering wins.
Spinning Reel Slot
The central slot will spin if a ball lands there are this can offer a jewel, a sun or three extra balls fired onto the screen.
Any win can be gambled by using the ‘Gamble’ button under the paytable; as you can see from the Game Two screenshot above you get to fire one ball onto the table and hope that it lands in the x2 or x4 slots, otherwise you’ll lose the whole amount.
Lucky Gems is a really enjoyable game – we would recommend setting the Autoplay to fifty and sitting back and enjoying the show. It’s a high quality conversion of pachinko and well worth checking out.
