Jewels of the Sea is a Novomatic slot with 5 reels and 720 ways. Available to play on desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 40p to £100 per spin, it takes you on an aquatic adventure to the bottom of the sea – pirate ships have succumbed to the stormy seas where your aim is to retrieve the treasures on offer.

First thing to note is the soundtrack which sounds like a love song – symbols on the reels include 2 enchanting mermaids, clever dolphins and regular playing cards (A, K, Q, J and 10). The highest value symbol is the blonde mermaid who rewards you with 400 times your line bet if you manage to find 5 on a payline.

As for the 720 ways to win, all wins pay anywhere in view from left to right and must be consecutive, starting from the left reel (reel 1). The wild symbol only appears on the 3 middle reels and substitutes for all symbols except the Free Spins scatter. When you form a winning combination with a x2 wild symbol, your payout will be doubled.

The main attraction is the Free Spins feature which is played when a combination of 5 Free Spins scatter symbols land anywhere on the reels – this will give you 8 free spins as well as a 1x stake cash prize. With the 720 ways to win engine, you can get a whopping 96 free spins with 12x your stake as a cash prize when you trigger the feature. The good news is that you can retrigger the feature again with a mind-blowing 192 free spins available in total!

Jewels of the Sea has an air of mystery about it – despite the cheesy soundtrack, big wins are certainly possible in the Free Spins feature. There’s a maximum of 500 times your stake to be won on every single spin which is good. Quite basic in terms of gameplay, it’s a medium to high variance slot which complements Novomatic’s already existing range of water inspired slots – think the iconic Lord of the Ocean or the pirate-themed Red Lady.
