If you like classic slot games with a bit of a modern twist, then we have just the thing for you. Software manufacturer Playtech is proud to present the online slot game Gem Heat, and it’s as fun and exciting as it is good-looking. The graphics will be sure to please you, even if you’re one of the picky ones; they are 3D, have a glossy finish, and are of amazing overall quality. The symbols in this title include very familiar and even vintage slot machine icons such as the single, double, and triple BAR icons, for example. As is custom, these are the lowest paying symbols on the reels and are followed by the horseshoe, the dollar sign, and the stack of gold bars which are all of the same value. Then we have the higher value icons all three of which are in different colors, the red one being the highest paying one of the lot.
Now, the layout in Gem Heat is also leans more towards the modern than the traditional. Namely, it features a grid of 5 reels and 3 rows and it has a total of 10 active paylines. However, the paylines are fixed, so you will not have the ability to regulate or adjust them at all. But stakes are well within a reasonable range and they give plenty of flexibility for most pocket sizes. The minimum bet is only 10p per single spin, and the maximum amount you will be able to wager here will set you back a hefty £1,000 per spin.
Gem Heat also boasts plenty of modern features. For example, there is the Hi Roller mode, which is optional and can give you better winning opportunities at an additional cost. It will give you two options; one for 10x your bet, and another for 20x your bet. The former will give you five consecutive spins with special Wilds spinning on reel 3. These special Wilds have the capability to upgrade the 7s and better your wins. The latter option will expand the reach of these symbols to all three middle reels 2, 3 and 4.
Besides the special Wild, there is a regular Wild that can land anywhere on the reels throughout gameplay. It also happens to be the most lucrative symbol in the game, offering payouts of up to 2,500 coins. More importantly, of course, the Wild will be able to substitute for other symbols to help complete wins, and the only exception to that rule is the game’s Scatter icon.
The Scatter can only appear on reels 1, 3 and 5, and you will have to land all three of these symbols at the same time in order to trigger Gem Heat’s main attraction – the Freespins Feature. As a result of this you will receive a total of 7 freespins, and throughout their duration, you will benefit from a locked special Wild in the middle position of reel 3. Just as described above, it will be able to upgrade the highest value 7s and thus boost your winnings.
Gem Heat is a very attractive offering, and that’s not only due to its awesome visuals, although those are certainly a plus point. This is a medium to high variance title which can potentially reward you very handsomely, and there’s a great opportunity to have a little more control over that as well thanks to the Hi Roller option.
