Giant Gems is a somewhat quirky slot by developer NextGen Gaming. It is a slot on which a change in settings can make a huge difference. If you play with a small bet, you will encounter many standard symbols. If you up your bet, a couple of the lesser paying symbols will disappear and they will get replaced by gems that lead to very big wins. The layout of the slot is standard, the background music is a bit of a disappointment, and the slot does not have free spins or wild symbols. So, is this slot worth your while?
How to play Giant Gems?
Giant Gems is a slot with five reels and three rows. At the bottom of the slot, you can configure your wager, but already here you need to be careful. That is, if you play with a relatively small wager, the reels will get inhabited by standard symbols that aren’t worth much. If you play with a larger bet, these standard symbols will get replaced by diamonds that do lead to big monetary gain.
So, if you want the gems, you will have to activate the Fortune Spins, which you can find right below the reels. The larger the Side Bet, the more diamonds will appear on the reels. In order to play maximally, you will have to play with ten times your wager, and that is a lot of money. So, make sure to first try out this game for free to make sure you know how you want to play this game with real money.
The slot does not have a scatter or wild. So, you will have to make do with only the symbols that land on your reels. And that is a real bummer as the quality of the animations are nothing to write home about. Also, the music disappoints, especially for a NextGen Gaming slot. This slot, unfortunately, does not reach the same quality as most other NextGen games.
No Free spins on Giant Gems
Giant Gems also does not have free spins, and with that, the slot does not have a scatter. Additionally, the slot also isn’t equipped with a bonus game. The only thing this game has are large and high-valued symbols, but that’s only when you’re playing with ten times your bet. And still, these symbols would have to land just right for them to lead to wins. Because of this, this slot seems to have been designed for those who want to spend big hoping to win big. It remains to be seen whether the slot has been made attractive enough, however. That is, the slot does not have a jackpot and that doesn’t go well with the giant gem theme.
Pay lines and jackpot on Giant Gems
As said before, the slot isn’t equipped with a jackpot. And seeing as you’re playing with giant gems and a large bet, a jackpot would have been appropriate. On the other hand, if you play with a large wager, you can win big frequently. A win of a 100 euros isn’t too exceptional, that is. The pay lines are indicated alongside the reels. However, you shouldn’t take these too seriously as individual wins also count.
That is to say, wins do not have to start completely to the left or right and a win can start on the second, third, and fourth reels as well. Also, wins get computed line per line and this does make for an exciting aspect of the game. More specifically, because wins are computed in a random order, the last win you’re shown might be the biggest one. This way, it’s constantly exciting since you know you might suddenly get surprised by a great win.
