What’s The Deal?
Drum roll please… yes, it’s finally here, Wombat fans! The Gemix 2 slot from Play’n GO!
This new game is the sequel to Gemix from back in 2014, that has become a slot cult classic – so we are more than stoked to see a second version has been released. This one´s brighter than the Reef Raider slot from NetEnt and that´s going some.
Fans of the original will be pleased to hear that the theme and game play stays the same, but the max win is now 7500x your bet (that’s almost double their cluster slot: Gigantoonz) and there’s a few new features, too.
It’s time to take a look…
Graphics & Theme
We are back in Gemix Land where castles sit in the clouds and gnomes in raincoats give you cheeky gifts from their pockets! Ha!
The reel grid sits on a backdrop of a clear blue sky, and you will see 4 white castles, one for each of the worlds. Meters and grids make up the rest of the screen.
The design and soundtrack have been given a good upgrade – and it shows.
Your reel icons are made up of multi-coloured gemstones in blue, turquoise, purple and green as the lower value icons.
While a golden star, a red heart, orange flower and a pink crescent moon make up the 4 premium symbols.
There are no scatters here, and the Wilds are represented by each of the World guardians that have these wild features.
Guardian Wild Bonuses
He will give you one or two 2×2 Mega Wilds
This small fellow will add up to 10 wilds to the reels.
Will add a spreading wild onto the grid
This benevolent sorcerer will give you up to 5 sticky wilds
Gemix 2 Game Play
The Gemix 2 slot is a cluster pays game that comes with a 7 x 7 grid. Create wins by landing clusters of at least 5x matching icons that touch either horizontally and/or vertically on the reels. It’s quite a bit different to games like 9 Pots of Gold which is more a traditional pay-lines number. This one is more like the Alha slot from NetEnt.
After each cluster match, the winning icons will explode and disappear, making way for brand new symbols to drop onto the reels from above.
Look to the right of the reels you’ll see a crystal meter – it needs 25 reel symbols to fill it up halfway. Do this on one consecutive cascade drop, you’ll be given one of these bonza reel modifiers:
Explodes 1 symbol which transforms and destroys adjacent symbols.
A random symbol will be chosen and all instances it be turned into that icon
A beam of light transforming any symbols it hits
Will connect 2 corner symbols with a lightning bolt – all symbols in the crossfire will turn into one of the corner symbols.
Manage to fully charge the meter by scooping the full 50 icons and you’ll trigger all 4 mini features! You’ll also be given a 2x win multiplier that will increase on each winning cascade drop.
There are 4 worlds in the Gemix 2 slot. They belong with the chisel jawed knight, a gnome in a mac, a vain princess and white-bearded wizard.
On every spin you will see a set of blue positions that make a pattern underneath various icons on the reel grid.
If you land a win on a position with a blue tile, the tile will now turn yellow. And if you manage to turn the whole pattern from blue to yellow, then you’ll level up to the next world. And the pays will level up too.
If you complete 2x World Patterns, you’ll get the chance to scoop another pay-out in this cool mini feature..
The dodgy gnome character will pop up onto the screen and ask you to choose between one of his two pockets. Pick correctly, you’ll win a jackpot prize that’s been accumulating during your spins in the last world!
Cheers Play’n GO! What a decent bunch they are…
The Gemix 2 slot is an excellent sequel and a lot of fun to play with its bonkers theme and many bonza bonuses.
The only minus is that it’s pretty tough to complete the World Patterns, so, the World Bonus isn’t like to hit very often.
Wombat score: 4.8/5

- What is different about Gemix 2 compared to Gemix slot?
The max win has increased from 4,513 to 7500x your bet and you can now re-trigger the Super Charge feature with up to a 20x multiplier wild! It was a mere 3x in the first game.
There is also the introduction of the Knight giving the game 4 worlds instead of 3!
- How volatile is Gemix 2?
The volatility here is in the medium category in this game, like in the original slot. Expect a mix of small frequent wins and the odd chunky pay out
