The wombat says: Drum roll, please… Gems of Adoria slot from NetEnt is the first 3D slot ever created! Which has whipped this wombat up into a fuzzy frenzy of excitement…
It comes with 3D symbols that can be flipped and rotated while you spin, and you can even alter your view of the reels by changing the camera angle! It’s kind of like a super charged Tetris Extreme Mega Drop slot game.
It’s all a bit mind-boggling to be honest. While this is all very ground-breaking, will Gems Of Adoria actually turn out to be a gem of a game? We hope so. But there’s only one way to find out…
Look and Feel
As we mentioned, this fresh take on the jewel-themed slot is a little bit different; the reels and the background are completely dynamic – which means the whole game is moving all the time! NetEnt are pretty good at 3D – a skill they have developed from table games like Live Rapid Roulette I guess.
It can make you a little dizzy but you’ll soon get used to it.
The reels are set within some stone walls, and the icons are the kind of shiny gems you’re used to seeing in Starburst or Dazzle Me. It’s an explosion of colour and movement. We have absolutely no idea who or where Adoria is, though…
Gems of Adoria slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 15 pay-lines. Your three- dimensional spins start from £/€0.10 and go up to £/€200 per game.
The reel icons are made up of 8 brightly coloured gemstones in blue, green, yellow and pink – 4 small and 4 large of each colour. The most valuable of these is the brilliant pink gem which will scoop you 25x your original wager if you land 5x of them on a payline. It´s as bright as the Milky Ways slot and some!
The gold ‘W’ symbol is the wild icon in this slot. It will substitute for all other icons on the reels except for the white orb scatter symbol.
Free Spins and Bonuses
Step away from the novelty factor of the 3D reels and you’ll find some cracking bonuses on offer in this slot, too:
Flipping Symbols Randomly in the base game (and free spins feature) from 2-5 symbols will flip horizontally and vertically to create more matches. Each time the symbols flip and a win is made, you’ll get a pay out. Bonza!
Striking Wilds At any time during play, your reels could be struck by lightning. Next, between 2 to 9 wild icons will land on top of the reels – which could lead to some significant win opportunities, Wombat fans.
Free Spins Land 3x or more white orb scatter symbols and you will trigger off the free spins:
The Striking wilds are in play during the free spins and so are the Flipping Symbols. Combine the two and you’ve got the potential for some very nice wins indeed!
We’re on the fence with Gems Of Adoria slot. While the innovative 3D reels are fun to look at, they can give you a headache! That said, the base game bonus features are unique and quite exciting which helps ease the pain.
Gimmick or gameplay innovation? You decide wombat fans. It’s not for us to say…
Wombat score: 3.9/5
