The wombat says: Giant Gems slot is bright looking video slot from those wizards at Betdigital- it’s up there with The Lab Slot on the colour front. And while it looks like a pretty standard slot on the surface, delve a bit deeper Wombat Fans and you’ll see that it includes some unusual features and rather rare betting options. Right then, as Marvin Gaye said, ‘Let’s get it on’.
Giant Gems is a 5 reel slot with 3 rows and 10 fixed pay-lines- lower than the likes of the Ragnarok slot, so we’d expect some volatility here. We’d say it was a medium variance slot. It has some pretty basic graphics (none of your 3D designs here slot fans) that are made up of a load of bling diamonds spinning against a black background. There’s also what sounds like a 70s funk backing-track to keep you spinning. 10 pay-lines is 9 more than the Enchanted Woods slot, just remember that!
Your symbols on the glitzy old reels include four coloured gems – a red ruby, a blue sapphire, a green emerald and a purple amethyst – as the high value symbols, while the lower paying icons are made up of the standard playing cards 10, J, Q, K & A.
And no, you’re not losing the plot, there are no Wilds or Scatter symbols to be found anywhere on the reels in Giant Gems slot. But there is the Side Bet feature which is where you’ll pick up the chunky payouts. See below for more info!
Side Bet and Fortune Spins
Giant Gems features a nice bit of original game-play (and lucrative) called Fortune Spins. Click on the central button before your spin to activate this cheeky little function. Here it how it works:
The Fortune Spins menu gives the chance to play with a whole new set of precious stones (aka Giant Gems that are 3×3 in size), 5 of them in total. You can activate as many of them as you wish by placing a side bet, which will be added to your regular line bet. The more you bet on the side, the more of the extra gems you will land on the reels. They will replace the 5 low value playing card symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 and their payouts are way way higher.
If you’re feeling lucky Wombat Fans, you really should try try out this cheeky feature to raise the stakes even higher. Here’s how the bets work:
1 coin = your standard bet
2 coins = the 10 removed, plus purple gem added
4 coins = the 10 & J, removed, plus purple and green gems added
6 coins = the 10, J, & Q removed, plus purple, green and blue gems added
8 coins = the 10, J, Q & K removed, plus purple, green, blue and red gems added
10 coins = the 10, J, Q, K, A removed, plus purple, green, blue, red and light blue gems added
The Giant Gems slots is pretty bright with all of those dazzling rocks when you first take a look at it, but the game’s real USP comes from the side bets and Fortune Spins feature. OK, so you do have to pay for the privilege of the extra play but this is a casino after all! The base game spice up quite a bit with the extra gamble which is an absolute gem.
Wombat score: 3/5
