Mega Gems Slot
Mega Gems is a 5-reel, max 20-pay line online slot courtesy of Betsoft. Online slots aficionados will notice that this slot has more than a passing resemblance to another, extremely popular slot from an alternative software provider. You don’t need to be a ‘star’ to work out which one, and we won’t ‘burst’ your bubble by revealing the connection!
All the symbols in this slot are gems in various colours – blue, green, purple, orange, cyan, red and yellow. There are only ten possible pay lines in total, but they work from left-to-right and right-to-left, so there are a maximum of twenty ways in which you can win. For each spin, you select your coin size from 0.02 to 1.00, the number of coins you wish to gamble from one to ten, and the number of lines you want in play, also from one to ten. Your total stake is all these factors multiplied together. Hit ‘spin’ to sending the gems gyrating!
The lowest gem of a prize-giver is the either the red or yellow gem, which wins 5x your bet-per-line. Top of the jewellery shop is the blue gem at 250x.
There is a wild symbol in the game, but it’s a wild with a difference. It resembles all seven gems glued together, and when it appears (and it only appears on reels two, three and four) it turns the whole reel wild and triggers a re-spin. If you win either before or after the re-spin, your total prize winnings are added up and totaled for that round.
This game also has a progressive jackpot. There are three jackpot symbols, each of which are stacked three symbols high on the central three reels. To win the progressive jackpot, you need to land each three-tiered symbol in full on the three central reels.
While Mega Gems has much in common with the more famous game it appears to resemble, it isn’t half as much fun. The progressive jackpot should be well-worth winning though, and a few lucky gem-laden spins on this game should be enough to delight anyone for a short while at least.
