Gem Drop : A Pleasing Gemstone-Themed PlaynGo Video Slot
Gem Drop is another PlaynGo video slot linked to the developer's Progressive Jackpot Game. This is a simple reel-spinning game that entails matching at least three-, up to five-of-a-kind symbols in order to collect a win.
Five (5) reels and ten (10) fixed paylines are in play. As the title implies, the predominant symbols appearing across the reels are brightly colored and multi-faceted gemstones. PlaynGo added a Triple Gold Bar image and the lucky red Seven (7) as high-paying symbols. Three, four, or five of the Triple Gold Bar icon pays 50,200, and 300 respectively. The lucky Seven (7) on the other hand, pays 25, 70 and 150 for three, four or five identical matches appearing in a payline.
Gem Drop follows the pay-both-ways payout rule. Such attribute could be regarded as a bonus treat. It departs from the conventional payout rule that pays only for matched paylines commencing from the leftmost or the first reel. With the pay-both-ways payout scheme, matched payline combinations originating from the fifth reel also count as wins.
Still, PlaynGo made this Gem Drop video slot more exciting by adding a Wild Symbol and a Bonus Spin feature.
The Rainbow Crystal Wild Symbol
To help players create payline wins more frequently and possibly, in multiples via a single spin, Gem Drop has a Wild Symbol represented by a Rainbow Crystal icon. A player can easily recognize the Rainbow Crystal Wild, as the symbol rotates and transforms into different colors when landing on the screen as part of a spin outcome.
Gem Drop Bonus Blocks Feature
Occasionally and while the reels are spinning, colored blocks descend on one (1) or more or reels. When the spinning motion comes to a stop, Gem Drop players should take notice if the colored block or blocks land on the reels. If it does, any icon shaded by the colored block or blocks, transforms into a Rainbow Crystal Wild Symbol. The occurrence therefore presents increased possibilities of creating matched payline wins.
The Bonus Blocks treat does not end there, because a resulting win triggers one (1) Free Spin. The Rainbow Crystal Wild borne by the Bonus Block occurrence stays in place during the bet-free spin. Any matched payline win created thereafter will be added to the winnings originally gained from the paid spin that initiated the Bonus Block win.
Activating the PlaynGo Progressive Jackpot Games
PlaynGo's Progressive Jackpot has three levels, the Bronze, the Silver and the Gold. Each level has a specific amount of Jackpot at stake.
Take note of regular symbols encircled in a gold ring, because the appearance of three or more Gold-Ringed Symbols activates the PlaynGo Progressive Jackpot Games. That is the time Gem Drop players get a chance to spin one or two Jackpot Wheels and win a guaranteed bonus amount, if not a Progressive Jackpot.
