Slots seem to become more complex each year. However, while many games move on to ever more challenging special features, sometimes something comes back from the past. The recent rise in popularity of Cluster Pays recently regenerated interest in the old reactor slots, which are in a sense, the predecessors of modern cluster games.
Hoping to take advantage of the renewed popularity of reactor games, Red Tiger Gaming has decided to unveil their latest effort at online casinos. Gemtastic slot intertwines classic fruit machine gameplay, modern video slot action, and the best the reactor/cluster engines can offer.
Familiar Gameplay for Many Players
The gemstone-themed game makes its debut as 6-reel, 30-line game and there are 5 rows of precious stones popping up on those reels. As is often the case with these types of games, players scrape together wins by matching symbols on a payline. Those winning symbols then disappear from the reels with new ones dropping down to replace them.
However, aside from just bagging wins with symbols, players should aim to bag chains of wins, as these bring all sorts of additional goodies to the table. Wilds can play a part, too, appearing as a multi-coloured “W” symbol on the reels. Wilds do not cough up wins on their own, though. All symbols may also appear as Mega Gems, which is another way of saying 2×2 or 3×3 colossal symbols. It is those Mega Gems symbols which can result in a non-progressive jackpot prize being paid out to players.
Chain Reactions and Increasing Multipliers
Successfully chaining together consecutive wins will see a Lava Multiplier increase. This is then applied to each win in succession a player lands. Glowing symbols may also appear from time to time on the reels. These can trigger a Magic Glow feature which is not be missed. If they form a part of a winning payline, they can turn into wilds on a re-spin.
Both of these features add a little something to new to the generic reactor game many players may have been expecting to find.
Simple, Cheap and Widely Available
Gemtastic takes the best that simple gaming has to offer, and polishes it up to provide a shining, glitzy gem of a title. This new Red Tiger Gaming slot is now available at top casinos and represents a cheap and fun-filled game to play. Equipped with a non-progressive jackpot worth 300x a total bet when 5 orange gems appear as Mega Gems on the lines, there is a lot to win in the game.
