Red Tiger Gaming’s Royal Gems Slot Review

Looking more like a social media game than a traditional slot, Royal Gems is an unusual regal-themed game from Red Tiger Gaming. Played on an 8x8 grid, winning combinations are created by landing clusters of matching symbols. They lock in place and a respin follows. Fill the whole screen with winners for a 2x boost. Play on all devices from between 20p and £20 per spin.

The setting here is the treasury of a mediaeval castle. Backed by piles of gold coins you’ll see heart, diamond, club and spade symbols as well as green, blue, purple and red gemstones. The best payer is the gold jewel with the embedded red stone.

Winning combinations are made by landing 5 or more matching symbols in a cluster. The bigger the cluster, the better the rewards. Land 5 of the top paying gold gem and you’ll receive a 2 times stake reward. A 64-symbol cluster awards 1,500 times your total stake.

After a spin, all the winning combinations are locked in position. These can be made of different symbols and appear on different parts of the grid. A respin then follows. If any matching symbols join the original cluster, a new payout is made. These symbols are also held and the process is repeated. The respins keep on coming as long as a new winning combination lands somewhere on the grid. This is known as the Locked Clusters feature.

If you manage to land winners on all 64 positions, then all the payouts receive a 2x multiplier boost and are doubled – this is called the Full Screen feature. On any spin, you could see the higher value gemstone symbols appear in oversized 2x2, 3x3 or even 6x6 configuration which can give your winning chances a real leg up – this is called the Super Gems feature.

Look out too for the crown symbol. This can upgrade a cluster to a higher paying symbol with an increased payout to match. This is called the Crown Upgrade feature.

Royal Gems is about as far from a classic one arm bandit as you can get. It’s a playable slot though that combines simple design with unusual but rather repetitive gameplay. If you’re after traditional extras, you won’t find them here. If you’ve played Facebook games and enjoyed them, then Royal Gems should appeal.

You can win an impressive 3,000 times your stake with the Full Screen feature as the 1,500 times stake payout doubles. Whilst the winning potential is decent, I prefer other Red Tiger Gaming slots such as Devil’s Number and The Equalizer.
