Gem Blast Slot Review
Red Tiger Gaming joined forces with Cayetano Gaming to produce Gem Blast, a seven-reel, seven-row video slot that benefits from cascading reels. Playable from £0.10 per spin, the 2018 release offers several interesting and rewarding additional features. Destroy 77 gemstones at once and you can win a Jackpot of 777 times the bet. Each gemstone win might trigger a Mystery Win, with a reward ranging from 7x to 77x the bet. Trigger the Beam Bonus to get 7 identical symbols in a row and win big. Activate the Bomb to create a block of 3×3 identical gems and double the win.
The reels are set in a galaxy far away and is packed with valuable gemstones. Your task here is to destroy as many gemstones to win big. Unfortunately, there are no Wilds on the offer, so it will not be that easy for spinners to land wins. Instead, there are Gemstones and Crystals. Benefit from Diamonds, which are the symbols that pay the most, as well as from Amethysts, Emeralds, Rubies, and plenty of other different-coloured Gemstones and Crystals. Given the fact that most of the features are triggered randomly, there are no Scatters among symbols.
Here is where things get really interesting. The 2018 release features seven reels, seven rows and benefits from cluster pays. Gamers need to form a cluster of five or more matching symbols horizontally or vertically to land a payout. Thanks to cascading reels, the winning symbols are blasted away, making room for new symbols to appear and, hopefully, create new winning combinations. Each successive win boosts the Jackpot Meter and your goal will be to blast away 77 gemstones at once to win a Jackpot of 777 times the initial bet. Every spin costs 10 coins, but the coin value can be changed, so punters can bet from £0.10 to £60 per spin.
Well, the most important special feature is the Jackpot of 777 times the bet, which we mentioned in the previous section. Also, there is the Mystery Win feature, which can be triggered by any gemstone win. Land a winning cluster of gemstones and you can get a bonus award of 7x-77x times the bet. The Beam Bonus is triggered randomly and the Beam can change 7 gemstones horizontally or vertically into identical symbols and it will also double the win. The Bomb Bonus is also randomly triggered and the Bomb will explode, creating a 3×3 block of identical gems for a certain win. Again, the win will be doubled.
As for the maximum possible payout, the limit is set at 1,200 times the bet per single spin. The Jackpot will offer you 777 times the initial bet, but for this to happen, you need to destroy 77 symbols at once. The Mystery Win feature can reward you with up to 77 times the bet. Diamond is the symbol that pays the most, offering 500 coins for 15 of a kind. Gem Blast’s RTP is 94.35%.
