Arcane Gems slot by Quickspin is a very simple yet compelling slot. It's a low-tech kind of game like for example Starburst and the recent Pragmatic Play Starz Megaways slot. You the reels revealed in a wooden suitcase placed on a desk in what seems like a Masonic room full of symbols and mysterious objects as befits the name. This is also what we see with Netent's Arcane Reel Chaos slot too and I for one prefer these dark shadowy subjects as they susally make for good games. So how much of bankroll will it cost to avail ourselves of the gems on offer here?
We only get 9 pay lines over 5 reels of 3 rows apiece on Arcane Gems slot but they are adjacent pays which means you need 3 consecutive symbols, which can all appear stacked, anywhere on the pay line to win. The 5-of-a-kinds are 25x bet Diamond, Pink Gem 10x, Red 7.5x, Yellow 5x, Green 4x with four card suits as the low pays giving 1.4 down to 0.8x for a full line. There are no scatters or Wilds but that doesn't matter too much when we reveal the in-play feature.
This simply means that any win will remain on the grid while the rest of the positions re-spin, if two winning symbols are present then the highest one becomes sticky. This continues until no further addition of that winning symbol is made to the reels. To add to the potential, any reel which is completely filled will then assign itself a random multiplier of 2,3,4 or 5x. These are multiplicative, so there is some serious potential here, Quickspin tell us 6750x bet is feasible!
Sometimes simple can be fun and I do like this 96.05% RTP game. The music, sound effects and animations make it easy to play for longer periods which is vital for any game which has just one thing going on. I saw a few pays in the hundreds here when testing it, mainly from diamond wins that had 2 reels full therefore multipliers. I can't say I believe those huge pays would be easy to hit, but then again if we knew when they would come we wouldn't have an arcane slot...
