Gems and jewels appear to be a rather popular theme with online slot game providers, and WMS has released several jewel-related titles themselves. One of them is Glitz and it is basically just all about the sparkle and gleam of precious stones. They come in every color and cut imaginable, and some of them aren’t even stones at all – there are pearls on these reels too. As for the stones, they are in different shades of blue, green, yellow and more, and you can see them as rectangles, squares, ovals and pears. Note that the backdrop is a dark red sheet mimicking satin, so there’s that sense of luxury.
As far as the layout goes, you will notice immediately that it’s different from what you see in most other online slot games. It’s not symmetrical and features 5 reels. The first two reels have 2 rows each, whereas the remaining 3 reels have 4 rows. All of this comes with a total number of 60 active paylines, but players are also free to change the number of active paylines if they so choose. This results in a fairly flexible betting range that begins at a minimum bet of only 5p per single spin. The maximum bet, on the other hand, will set you back a total of £90 per spin.
Where to Play
The Wild symbol in Glitz can land in any positon, anywhere on the five reels. Furthermore, it will be able to replace any of the regular symbols and help complete winning sequences. Keep in mind, however, that it will not be able to substitute for the game’s Scatter symbol, and it doesn’t offer any payouts.
The Freespins feature is this game’s most attractive element and also the only bonus round available. However, it’s not as simple and straightforward as free spins rounds normally are in most other slots. In this case, you will have the opportunity to trigger the bonus using three different methods.
One method is by landing four matching symbols on the first 2 reels. This will award you a total of 5 free spins and for the duration of the free spins those matching symbols will remain fixed on the reels. Next is the possibility of landing three Scatter symbols on the tall reels (3, 4 and 5). This will also award you 5 free spins, but before they begin you will need to pass through a quick pick-me game. The result of the game will determine which symbol will cover the first two reels and remain there for the duration of the free spins round.
Finally, you can do a combination of both of the above methods. You will need to land four matching symbols on reels 1 and 2, and you will also have to land 3 Scatters on the remaining reels. This will award you a total of 20 free spins, and just as with the previous options, the four matching symbols will be held in place until the bonus round ends. Players also have the possibility to land another 3 Scatters at the same time to re-trigger the feature. This will award an extra 5 free spins.
Although not visually as compelling as other WMS slots, Glitz does offer a different kind of setup and therefore a different gaming experience. In addition, the game’s high variance promises big wins in the bonus round, so it’s certainly worth giving a shot.
