Wizard of Gems is brought to you by Play ‘N Go and is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot which is playable across desktop, mobile and tablet devices. Playable from 20p to £100 a spin, it has a magical feel to it with colourful gemstones that cascade down from above onto the reels to create winning combinations.
It has a spell book wild symbol and star scatter symbol which are important. However, when you have a winning combination, the symbols that comprise them magically vanish and symbols cascading down from above to fill the gaps – this gives you the opportunity to win time and time again from every single spin. As a result, the payout increases from 1x to 2x to 3x and then 5x!
Look out for 3 star symbols (the scatter) anywhere on the reels as this will trigger the Free Spins feature and give you 10 free spins. On every free spin, a minimum of 1 wild symbol and a maximum of 9 wild symbols can appear on the reels to give you more winning combinations.
Look out for 3 star symbols on a free spin as this will trigger a further 10 free spins – you can trigger more free spins up to 5 times with up to 50 free spins possible. The cascading feature also applies with all free spins subject to a possible 5x multiplier!
In terms of variance, Wizard of Gems is somewhere in the middle meaning it’s nicely balanced – there’s a whopping 12,500 times your stake available to win which is pretty good. The real big wins will undoubtedly come from the wilds added per free spin. Hopefully you’ll be tempted to grab your wand and benefit from wondrous winnings.
Wizard of Gems reminds me on NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest in terms of gameplay (known as Avalanche Reels) but graphically is similar to NextGen Gaming’s Merlin’s Magic Respins. It’s definitely a good game with Play ‘N Go impressing once again.
