Gem Zone: Demo
Gem Zone Theme/Symbols
There’s a slightly futuristic feel to the design of Gem Zone. With an electro backing track playing in the background, you’ll see purple, blue, yellow, green and red 10 to A symbols as well as 5 higher paying crystal gems of the same colour. Land 5 of the red gem on adjoining reels for a payout of 3 times your total stake. The gold star is the wild. This replaces everything bar the scatter.
Dynamic Ways engine
The number of symbols that can land on each reel varies with each spin depending on whether the Dynamic Ways Zone is open. At their minimum size, the 5 reels will offer 243 ways to win. This can expand to 3,125 ways to win if all the Dynamic Ways Zones are open and all 5 rows include 5 symbols. You can see how many ways to win are active in the meter above the reels. This is known as the Dynamic Ways feature.
Next Dimension Free Spins Bonus feature
Land the Bonus symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin and you’ll activate the Next Dimension Free Spins Bonus feature . On offer here are 10 free spins. These take place on an expanded 6-reel machine. The number of symbols on each reel increases too.
There will be a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 7 symbols on each reel. This means that the number of ways to win rises too. On each free spin, you’ll have between 15,625 and 117,649 ways to create a winning combination. 3 bonus symbols on reels 2, 4 and 6 will give you 10 more free spins – with no limits.
Simple but volatile
With its pastel shades and soothing soundtrack, you could mistake Gem Zones for being a gentle slot. We found it be rather fiery on the volatility front – you can win up to 10,000 x stake on every free spin. The RTP stands at 95.93%. The gameplay is very straightforward but the changing number of ways to win keep things interesting, especially in the free spins.
There are similarities here with Megaways slots. If you like the shape-shifting action offered there, then you should find enough to enjoy to make Gem Zone worth a spin.
