Mine your way to some huge prize payouts in Hot Gems, a five-reel, 25-payline title from Playtech that features state-of-the-art graphics and a Collapsing Reels feature that can provide chain wins. Also boasting free games with an additional prize multiplier and scatter symbols that are capable of dolling out a top award of 100x your total bet, Hot Gems is fun and fast-paced video slot that will quickly have players prospecting for huge payouts thanks to its simple gameplay and user interface.
Like many other gem-based titles, Hot Gems features an underground mining theme in which players have to dig for precious stones in order to increase their wins. Higher value symbols in the game include a bearded prospector, a lantern, a pickaxe and a mine cart, while gem icons feature instead of the standard ace-through-ten playing card symbols. The game also boasts a duelling banjos-style soundtrack to keep players entertained as they play, while all winning paylines explode and allow new symbols to drop onto the reels just like in an arcade-style title.
The two main attractions in Hot Gems are the game’s collapsing reels feature and the prospect of landing 15 free spins – both of which are combined to create a hugely rewarding bonus round. Triggered whenever the game’s logo features on reels two, three and four, players will enter their free games knowing that any wins created by the Collapsing Reels will result in a prize multiplier increasing by one up to a maximum of 5x. This multiplier will reset at the end of each spin, but it does provide the potential to chain together huge winning sequences at no additional cost.
An incredibly simple slot to configure, Hot Gems features just two adjustable buttons, namely players’ bet per line amount and a pop-up autoplay menu. The first option enables them to use plus and minus arrows to adjust their bet from £0.01-£5.00 – making the game playable from £0.25 to £125.00 per spin in total – while the second means they can queue up to 99 consecutive games.
Featuring a classic block-busting format that is further enhanced by free games and an ever-increasing prize multiplier, Hot Gems takes a classic video slot format and significantly improves it. The game both looks and sounds great, while a top base game award of 5,000x your bet per line that can be boosted to 25,000x during the free spins feature provides plenty of payout potential.
