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 the 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. The whole mechanic reminds us of the Cygnus slot from ELK Studios – another great game.
Look and Feel
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 a happy gem-miner and a pretty-in-pink girl with a lollipop.
The wizard doesn’t look in the best of moods though. Each character has their own world which keeps the gameplay interesting. It’s similar to the Micro Knights slot from ELK Studios. It’s a bright slot game alright.
The music is a whimsical affair – a mix of electronic and pan pipes. For the Wombat’s pointy little ears, it works a treat.
Gemix Slot Game Play
Gemix is packed with jewels, offering seven reels and seven rows. That´s even more than Treasure Heroes with its 5×5 grid my friends!
You’ll win a prize for clusters of five or more gems and the more you match, the bigger the prize. Watch them burst before your eyes.
A cluster of twenty sparkly gems unleashes a Crystal Charge to boost your winnings and if you explode forty or more you’ll trigger a supercharge that gives you a 3x multiple on your wins.
That cute yellow star is your highest payer.
The miner, lollipop girl and wizard each live in their own world and once you’ve landed all of the winning patterns you can move up to the next one.
All three characters are generous: the miner will give you ten Wilds in random spots, Ms Lollipop also dishes out the Wilds and the wizard gives you Sticky Wilds that stick around as long as the winning combinations keep on coming.
Free Spins and Bonuses
Random features are triggered when you get a winning combination of twenty 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.
The Gemix Slot isn’t the highest-paying game, but if you want a lot of colourful fun it’s one to try. The three different worlds keep the action fresh and add an extra layer of gamification to the fun.
Wombat Score: 4/5
How do you trigger a win on Gemix?
You need at least five matching gems in a cluster to win. The best wins trigger when you land fifteen or more matching symbols in a cluster. The Star gemstone is the high payer.
How do you get into the bonus?
When you land a winning cluster of five or more gems, the winning symbols explode to make way for new gems to drop in (Avalanche Wins). This can lead to consecutive wins on the same go. If you explode twenty symbols like this, you’ll set off one of the four Crystal Charge bonuses.
Are there free spins in Gemix?
No, but there is plenty of action in the base game with the Avalanche Wins feature.
