Royal Gems slot by Red Tiger takes on their big grid format here in line with several of their other releases of late such as Tiki Fruits, Dragon's Luck Stacks and the lamentable Jack In A Pot. So you may deduce from that that some of them are better than others, so how will Royal Gems fare here? Well, it's an extremely basic game with the reels set in a royal treasure vault and plain black background to the symbols plus some medieval music playing as we watch, so pretty simple stuff so far. There isn't therefore much to look at, so let's hope our bankroll doesn't get royally taxed in this rather bare kingdom.
You get a large grid here on Royal Gems slot of 8 reels of 8 rows each and there are no winlines as you get paid for clusters of 5 or more adjacent symbols. There are no Wilds or scatters either which may also indicate the simplicity of things here but it doesn't necessarily result in a dull game as we'll see. You get paid for the clusters forming of 5 up to a maximum of all 64 tiles and if you achieve that the win will pay double. The pays are staggered so it's best to demonstrate the lowest and highest ones which are 0.1 x bet for the four card suits at 5 or 6 in a cluster to 50x for all 64. The highest is the Yellow and Red Gem at 2x stake for 5 to 6 in a group to 1500x bet for all 64. There is more to the game than this though!
You may see giant symbols land on any spin which can be 2x2, 3x3 or even 6x6 but the main feature is the respins which occur after any win. The winning clusters lock into place and the remaining tiles respin until no further additions are made to the clusters in view. You must pay for each respin though but you get the winning clusters paid each spin too as they increase in size. Your final feature is a randomly appearing Ghostly Crown which will pick a winning cluster and upgrade the symbol within it. The win frequency is quite low as you may have deduced due to the fact they are repeated for at least one spin each time wins occur.
Royal Gems slot is quite an entertaining game and not without big win potential especially on high symbols which can pay a good win, repeated at least once when they drop in. The appearance and sounds are pretty unremarkable as is the 96.00% RTP but the excitement builds as the winning clusters respin and it's possible to win many thousands times your bet on a very good day. For a low-tech online slot, Royal Gems hails from a good kingdom and it may prove to be a prosperous land for some...
