Giovanni's Gems Slot

Review by

An exceptional online slot comes from the Betsoft kitchen and its title is Giovanni’s Gems. Meet Giovanni, a gem hunter digging in a cave hidden in a dark wood, and join him on his quest to dig up some precious stones for high payouts. The online video slot released in August 2017 uses a unique reel setup with 7 reels and 7 rows. 

What’s more, you can forget about standard paylines as the game uses Cascading Clusters which means that you will create winning combinations as long as you create clusters consisting of 5 and more symbols. When a cluster is created, the winning symbols explode and you have an additional chance of winning. 

Giovanni’s Gems features impressive 3D graphics and cartoon-like animations accompanied with a relaxing tune. At any point of the game you can trigger up to 50 free spins and win up to 1,000,000 coins.

The Giovanni’s Gems slot is played at a 7×7 grid and features Cascading Clusters. To start winning payouts, you need to wager at least 30 coins but you can bet up to 150 coins per spin as well. The coin denominations varies between R0.20 and R10 allowing you to bet between R6 and R1,500 per spin. If you push the Max Bet button, you will set the bet to the maximum value at a chosen coin size and set the reels in motion. If you don’t feel like spinning the reels manually, there is the Autoplay option letting you play 100 spins without interruption. High value symbols are represented as sacks with gems and torches whereas pickaxes, emeralds and rubies stand for mid-value symbols. Low-value payouts are delivered by sapphire, amethyst, citrine and coal symbols. As soon as you create a cluster of at least 5 identical symbols, they will explode to leave place for a new set of symbols.

Giovanni’s Gems features two special symbols – Giovanni’s Diamond and Scatter. Giovanni’s Diamond is the regular coal symbol that turns into a diamond if it lands next to winning symbols. It delivers payouts as soon as it transforms and you need only 1 diamond symbol to win a prize. Scatters represented as Giovanni himself pay when you land at least 3 of a kind anywhere on the reels. To trigger the free spins feature, you need at least 5 Giovanni Scatters on the reels. You can win between 7 and 50 free spins. During free games Giovanni’s Diamonds appear on the reels directly. Each payout can be gambled by using the Double Up feature allowing you to risk your entire winning or a half of it. Guess the colour of a hidden card correctly and you will double your stake.

With Betsoft releases you know that a one-of-a-kind gaming experience is guaranteed and Giovanni’s Gems is not an exception. It will provide you with entertaining and rewarding gameplay while Giovanni will cheer you up along the way standing on the left side of the reels. Look out for him on the reels as he is your key to free games during which you can win big thanks to Giovanni’s Diamonds delivering up to 15,000x your total bet. Grab your pickaxe and dig up some nice rewards on your desktop or mobile device.
