Mega Gems Slots

Mega Gems features a classic slot theme and is part of the BetSoft portfolio. This game comes with a well-designed interface for PC as well as mobile devices to ensure it is ready when you are. Unlike most, this game offers 5 reels and 10 paylines versus the traditional 15 or 25 lines. 

Various precious stones and gems appear throughout as symbols in different cuts and colours. This is an nice touch and done remarkably well to give those gems a real sense of worth. 

The real action and joy kicks in during the bonus game which is rather unique as it includes expanding wilds as substitute symbols and there is the ability to trigger a progressive jackpot also in play, but only if all paylines have been activated as well as max bet is wagered.

Mega Gems gives you all the options needed to get started below the reels. There are many options given for coin sizes and wins are based on the coin size you choose. Those with smaller bankrolls still can find this game to be fun and profitable but it is more suited for those who prefer to chase the progressive jackpot.

This slot has some outstanding and brilliant graphics for a classic slot, which really comes into play when the wilds appear. Betsoft has gone as far as including animations when a win follows and the wilds ensure these features come often. Once the colourful wilds appear, they will expand and cover the reel as well as trigger a re-spin feature. Any wins that are payable are paid and then the reels will re-spin with any wilds remaining in place. These can only be found on reels 2, 3 and 4, and additonal wilds can appear during the re-spin. This is a greater feature that gets the blood pumping in anticipation that we can assure you as should another wild symbol appear, it will see another re-spin take place. This will continue until no other wilds appear.

As mentioned above, this slot includes a progressive jackpot. With this, players will need to see 3 stacked jackpot symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 simultaneously. The jackpot amount displayed above the reels will be awarded to your account in total if you are lucky enough to win it. Remember, max bet must be in play in order to win this jackpot.

Mega Gems is one of our favourites in this series of slots. The graphics and bonus features make sure a good time is had by all. The only draw back for some will be the fact that max bet must be wagers to win the jackpot but others will find that aspect exciting. Overall, Mega Gems is large on action and keeps you excited about what waits around the corner. If classically designed slots are your game, then this one should be at the top of your list. Our rating: 98/100
