Oh, to get your hands on some magnificent jewels, well some decent ones wouldn’t be that bad. Well, if you play this great slot from High5 Games, the big wins might just come along so regularly that you can pop down town and get some sparkling beauties of your own. That’s definitely on the cards if the tumbling reels feature can get you plenty of consecutive wins.
This is a five-reel game that has a total of 15 positions rather than pay-lines. More about that in a moment. Those 15 (the 5 by 3 grid) are a fixed amount so no need to be concerning yourself with how many to activate. You do need to be working out how much to stake on each spin of the reels. The minimum cost of playing this slot is 0.60 and the maximum 240. A wide range that will suit players whether they be looking for some fun or aiming to win some big cash prizes. It can get even more expensive to play this slot if you opt to activate the Cluster
As you might imagine, the majority of the symbols in this game are made up of a collection of jewels. They are presented on a royal blue background and that helps make this a colourful looking slot. These include an emerald, citrine, amber, sapphire, and two broaches in the form of lizards, one with red eyes and the other with blue. There are also blue and red flowers, pink and blue butterflies, and a golden shopping bag.
Wins are paid for matching symbols that are horizontally or vertically adjacent to each other. That’s called the Clusterbucks evaluation according to the paytable. You need to get five matching symbols to get a win in this game. The top win in the base game is for 2000 coins for 15 matching symbols, so you will need the symbol in question to cover every spot on the grid for that to happen.
It’s the gold shopping bag which is the scatter symbol in this game and it helps trigger the bonus game in this slot. It only appears on the second, third and fourth reels so keep an eye out for it. Strangely there’s no wild symbol in this game which is a rather rare occurrence in a five-reel slot game.
The game includes the tumbling reels feature and this is a great way of getting some consecutive wins. When a winning combination comes around, the symbols that created it suddenly do a disappearing act. You can’t have a set of reels with a big gap in it so it needs to be filled. Symbols from above tumble down and fill the vacant spaces. That could mean that a new winning combination may have been formed. If that is the case then the whole procedure is repeated. It continues to do so until a new set of reels doesn’t create a winning combination. This can be lucrative and it’s also available in the free spins round.
If you can get three of the golden shopping bags scatter symbols on the second, third and fourth reels, that earns you seven free spins. A new set of reels is used for this and at the end of the free spins you are awarded 1x the total bet for each winning tumble that occurred during the free spins. There’s no opportunity to re-trigger the free spins which is a bit disappointing.
You definitely need to have a look through the paytable before playing this slot for real. It’s important to know as much about the game and this one is a little bit different from others out there. The paytable will give you valuable information about how much the winning combinations pay out, the tumbling reels feature and the free spins round. Then have some free games in order to see everything working. It’s all highly useful research and saves any surprises happening when playing for real.
If you have a great time playing this slot, then try out some other similar games. For example, try out the Novomatic slot ‘Kingdom of Legends.’ That slot also offers players the chance to win some free spins, though ten are offered in this game. It’s another slot that is totally devoid of any wild symbols. You can also have a go on the Amatic slot ‘Dragons Kingdom’ which just like ‘Magnificent Jewels’ offers players a total of seven free spins if three scatter symbols appear on the reels.
The jewels look magnificent but this game relies on the tumbling reels to make it one that you should have a go at playing. It’s strange not to have a wild symbol but I guess the paying out on adjacent symbols could result in large wins if a few came along. Perhaps a wild that only appears on one or two reels might have been an idea. The tumbling reels do save this game because it’s a great feature and can bring about a fair few wins. This is worth playing but there are better games out there.
