Free Gems Bonanza slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Gems Bonanza slot by Pragmatic Play is their version of those Play'n Go grid games such as Moon Princess, the popular Energoonz slot and Viking Runecraft slot. Here we simply have a temple background, zany music and gems on the grid for our winning clusters on the stone tiles. So can we get a diamond result for our bankroll here or will any bonanza simply be a pipe dream when entering this temple?
On the grid...
We get an 8x8 grid of 64 tiles here on Gems Bonanza slot where you need 5 or more similar adjacent tiles to get paid. There are 7 Gems, paying a minimum of 5 and maximum of 25+ clusters with the top and lowest pays as follows: Red 1000/1x, Purple 500/0.5x, Green 300/0.3x, Turquoise 150/0.25x, Orange 100/0.2x, Pink 75/0.15x and finally Blue 50/0.1x. There can be up to 5 coloured illuminated squares on the grid each spin which will trigger modifiers but there's no Wilds or scatters appearing naturally.
If a square is illuminated and this is uncovered by a winning cluster, it will award a modifier.
Blue Nuclear - after any wins are paid and the tumbles are over, a whole new grid will appear.
Pink Wild Gem - all instances of one random symbol turn Wild.
Orange Squares - random 2x2 symbols will be placed on the grid.
Red Colossal Symbol - a random 3x3, 4x4 or even 5x5 tile is placed on the grid.
Green Lucky Wilds - 5 to 15 random Wilds placed on the grid.
Gold Fever Progressive Feature
All winning symbols are counted on the meter to the right. When it reaches 114 you get Gold Fever and all 5 modifiers will be played in turn as listed above, at 2x multiplier for all wins. If you collect 116 symbols during this, you retrigger the round at a 4x multiplier. Now collect 120 symbols and retrigger at 6x multiplier, if you collect 125 symbols here you retrigger at 8x multiplier and finally collect 132 symbols for another round at 10x. You can also buy the Gold Fever trigger in some jurisdictions for 100x bet.
Gems Bonanza slot has a multi-thousand times bet potential and a good 96.55% RTP. The music and sounds are a bit annoying though and the base game pays very little unless you get a modifier or two in a sequence. The progressive feature can take a long time coming and then stitch you up with 10-30x quite often, although it can pay thousands if hitting it right - the game is rated as very volatile which explains the variance in feature returns. It's no better or worse than the Play'n Go efforts mentioned at the beginning here. You may see a bankroll bonanza, but probably not...
