Crystal Gems is a five reeled video slot machine that brings players a rewarding experience that is filled with gems and jewels. This is because the game is themed around all that is precious, therefore, it is entitled Crystal Gems. This is also why players will see plenty of precious stones and jewels spinning on the reels of the game. All of these symbols come in wonderful visuals, courtesy of Microgaming. The game is accompanied by an exciting soundtrack and comes packed with a hefty sum of rewarding features and bonus symbols that players can take advantage of in order to earn great payouts.
The icons that are scattered on the five reels and the 25 lines of the game include a white diamond, a red ruby stone, a WILD symbol, a blue sapphire, an orange stone and an emerald alongside poker card symbols.
The WILD icon is the game’s joker, which means that this icon can substitute for other symbols, except the bonus scatter symbol, so it can help players earn a payout by forming a winning combo on any of the paylines that they have activated. It will substitute for the icon that would result in the highest payout possible, and that is per line. Therefore, the wild icon has the ability to replace different icons on different lines to help players get paid generously. Therefore, whenever players see the wild icon, they know that they have a better chance at grabbing a payout. Of course, like any wild at an online slot machine, it will not be able to stand in for the other special icon that the game has, which is the scatter Jewel Cart.
The Jewel cart is the scatter symbol of this game. It is responsible for triggering the free spins bonus round in which players will earn a number of spins on the video slot without paying. In order for players to enter that round and earn the free spins, they will have to get at least 3x of the scatter icons anywhere across the reels of the game. During these free spins, there are 2x, 3x and 4x multiplier symbols that will act as wild during the free games and will multiply the payout of players by 2x, 3x or 4x. So they will not only help players get paid, as they will also multiply the regular payouts that they would claim during the bonus round.
