Despite the glamorous title, this Barcrest offering isn’t as flashy as you might think. Yes, the theme is jewels and they make up most of what you will be seeing throughout gameplay, but all in all, the design is really quite basic, as is the quality of the visuals. That’s not to say that they are bad, but they certainly lack the high definition of most modern day slots, and are especially not up to par with the latest offerings by this provider. The backdrop is a simple, vague purplish-black pattern that doesn’t seem to make sense when you look at the reels. Speaking of the reels, they feature the lower value playing card icons A, K, Q, J and 10, and alongside them are the said jewels, including sapphires, rubies, emeralds and diamonds.
The layout in Jackpot Jewels, however, is highly unusual. It boasts a total of 7 reels and 4 rows, with a maximum number of 50 active paylines. Unlike what you get in most other Barcrest slots, though, here you are free to regulate the paylines, and this makes for a fantastic betting range, starting off at a minimum of only 2p per spin. The maximum wager amount on these reels is a total of £500 per single spin.
The Jackpot Jewels symbol is Wild in this game and can only appear on reels 2, 4 and 6. It doesn’t offer any payouts of its own, but it will be able to replace any of the other symbols on the reels with no exceptions. Thus, the Wild will help you complete winning combos and hence increase your winning opportunities.
The game’s Wild is actually also its Scatter. Therefore, it will be responsible for triggering the one special feature that this online slot game has in store – the Freespins bonus feature. For this to happen, though, you will be looking to land all three Wild/Scatters on reels 2, 4 and 6 during the same spin. This will activate the feature, awarding you 10 free spins.
Furthermore, all throughout this bonus round you will benefit from the lack of lower value playing card icons. In other words, there will only be jewels on the reels. Plus, each of the gems comes with a different multiplier, and every time you form a winning combo with those gems, their multiplier will increase. You also have the chance to re-trigger the feature and gain another 10 free spins on top. To do this, simply land another 3 Scatter icons simultaneously.
Hi Roller Mode
You can add another special feature to the game if you choose to opt for the Hi Roller Mode. It will provide you with the opportunity to purchase five consecutive spins for a higher wager amount, and as a result, all Wild/Scatters that you land will remain sticky for the duration of the feature.
Jackpot Jewels doesn’t look like much, but gameplay is fast-paced and addictive. The setup is very simple and crystal clear, so there are no complications to worry about, and you can pocket some pretty satisfying wins, especially with the help of the Hi Roller feature.
