The Wombat says: There comes a time in every wombat’s online casino career when he stumbles across a real gem of a game. A jewel in the entertainment crown. A proper diamond. And Gemix slot from Play’n GO is one of those games.
Whose head wouldn’t be turned by the promise of fine jewels? It’s the kind of thing Mrs Wombat is always dropping hints about…
Strewth, it’s like a rainbow exploded on the screen. This slot game’s so bright, this Wombat had to wear shades. Just as well I look even more cool than usual in them, right? The whole mechanic reminds us of the very excellent Cygnus slot from ELK Studios.
Look and Feel
Ah, a rainbow-filled world of cuteness is home to glowing gems including a pink moon, a red heart and a gold star. In the distance, there’s a glimpse of the outside world with a pink and white castle set in beautiful gardens.
You’ll meet friendly characters along the way, including the smiley gem-miner and the pretty-in-pink girl with the lollipop. The wizard doesn’t look in the best of moods though. Each character has their own world, so it keeps play interesting. The whole set up reminds me a bit of the Micro Knights slot from ELK Studios except, of course, there are no knights in it. It´s dazzling bright though.
The music’s a whimsical affair – kind of what would happen if you mixed a bit of electronic with pan pipes. Trust the Wombat’s pointy little ears, it works a treat.
Gemix Slot Game Play
Gemix is packed with jewels, offering a sparkling 7 reels and 7 rows. That´s even more than Treasure Heroes with its 5×5 grid my friends!
You’ll win a prize for clusters of 5 or more gems and the more you match, the bigger the prize. Watch them burst before your wombat eyes.
A cluster of 20 of the sparkly gems unleashes a Crystal Charge to boost your winnings and if you explode 40 or more you’ll release a supercharge that gives you 3 times the value of your prizes.
That cute yellow star is your highest payer.
The miner, lollipop girl and wizard each have their own world and once you’ve bagged all the winning patterns you can move up to the next one. All three characters are generous fellas: the miner will give you 10 Wilds in random spots, Ms Lollipop also dishes out the Wilds and the wizard gives you the Sticky Wilds that stat as long as the winning combinations keep on coming.
Free Spins and Bonuses
Random features are triggered when you get a winning combination of 20 or more symbols.
A Nova Blast makes a gem explode and destroy all the symbols around it.
Crystal Warp picks a symbol at random and transforms all those around it, with a bit of luck to higher payers.
Light Beam blasts horizontally or vertically, making every symbol it touches match.
Chain Lightning flashes and all the symbols it lights up match the ones in the corner it came from.
Gemix isn’t the highest payer, but if you want a whole lot of colourful fun it’s definitely one to try. The three different worlds keep the action fresh and add an extra layer of gamification to the fun.
