If you think you’re played an online slot called Reel Gems before then you are probably correct; there’s already a Microgaming version with the same name and there are some superficial similarities but this one’s from Playtech and it’s a bit newer. It certainly looks a bit more impressive and it features a progressive jackpot so what’s not to like?
Reel Gems is a five reel slot with three rows and twenty fixed paylines; it’s all sparkle and glitz with a stylishly-decorated backdrop to the reels al finished in a purplish hue.
The four high value base game symbols are all jewels – red, blue, green and a white diamond. 10, J, Q, K and A represent the lower values.
The Reel Gems logo is wild and will substitute for everything except scatters. There are two scatter symbols – a diamond ring and a jewellery box – which activate separate features.
Landing three of the diamond ring scatter symbols anywhere in view will trigger the Winspins bonus. You can now choose between three combinations of spins and multipliers as follows:
- Five spins + up to 10x multiplier
- Ten spins + up to 5x multiplier
- Fifteen spins + up to 3x multiplier
The multiplier is determined after each spin and you are guaranteed a win per spin; if there is no win you’ll get another spin. It’s not possible to re-trigger the spins from within this bonus game.
9 Diamond Progressive Jackpot
The jackpot total is displayed at the top of the screen and to win it you must first land three jewellery boxes anywhere on the reels. Each box will then float to the front of the screen and open up. Three jewels appears from each box and if they are all diamonds that jackpot amount is yours. Any other combination of jewels awards a prize based on your stake.
Reel Gems Online Slot Playing Tips
As the free spins are all guaranteed wins we’re inclined to select the five free spins + 10x multiplier; we can’t support this with any statistics though so the choice is yours.
This is a slick-looking slot which oozes luxury at every turn; we like the inclusion of the progressive jackpot although the RTP is a little low at 93.1%.
