Lightning Gems is a NextGen Gaming slot with 5 reels and 10 paylines that can be played on all devices from 15p to £150 per spin. This fantasy themed game benefits from 3 bonus features including wild nudges, wild wins and free spins with 50 extra wilds on the reels.

Visually, Lightning Gems has a fantasy feel – set against a dark night backdrop, symbols on the reels include clubs, hearts, spades and diamonds as well as a selection of precious gemstones. There’s also a wild symbol which substitutes for all symbols except the scatter and gives you 500 coins for 5 on a payline.

When it comes to bonus features, you have the Wild Nudge feature which is randomly triggered – after any base game spin, wilds which has just missed out on giving you a win will be nudged up or down to give you a winning combination. This feature can also apply in the Free Games feature.

You also have the Wild Wins feature which is also activated at random in both the base game and Free Games feature – during any spin, wilds can be randomly added to the reels to give you a guaranteed win.

That Free Games feature is triggered when 3 or more portal scatters appear anywhere on the reels – you will be rewarded 20, 50 or 2,000 times your stake for 3, 4 or 5. Now, 10 wild symbols are added to each with a total of 50 extra wilds added in total. You can also retrigger the feature giving you a total of 20 free spins.

Lightning Gems is quite a simple game which is all about the wild symbol – I found the bigger wins to come in the Free Games feature where the other 2 randomly triggered features can occur as well as a total of 50 extra wilds appearing on the reels.

I consider the game to be a medium to high variance offering with maximum wins of up to 2,000 times your stake on each spin. Overall, a decent effort – I also recommend you try NextGen Gaming’s Medusa II which is a classic.
