Pragmatic Play has developed a new video slot that takes you on a wild hunt for gems. You won’t be visiting a mining cave this time round. Instead, the game takes you to a wonderland, where glowing but blurry lights dominate the background. Meanwhile, sparkling jewels dominate the reels, blending well with the electric soundtrack which enhances a fun atmosphere.
Before playing, consider choosing a suitable stake based on your bankroll. To do so, open the bet modifier and configure from 1 to 10 bet levels, 0.01 to 0.5 coin values, and 0.20 to 100 total wager amounts. However, the bet multiplier in the Jewel Rush slot game remains static at 20x.
The game uses a 7×7 grid with a Cluster Pay mechanic where you’ll need a cluster of 5 matching symbols adjacent to each other to start winning. The grid holds 49 symbols at a time, and when you collect a win, participating symbols are removed from the grid, and new symbols fall from the top to fill the gaps. This tumbling feature continues as long as winning combos form.
There are seven colourful gems as paying symbols, with the pink and red ones as the most lucrative, paying up to 300x and 200x the bet for the maximum clusters. We’re disappointed that the game doesn’t pack a Wild, but at least Scatters can appear anywhere.
The tumbling Reels feature means that after every win pays out, all the paying symbols disappear from the grid. The remaining icons drop to the screen’s bottom allowing empty positions to be filled with new icons tumbling from above. This Jewel Rush bonus progresses until no more paying sequences hit due to the tumbles.
Manage 3+ scatters to activate the bonus plays with 10 initial games. During this feature, winning icons will have random x2 or x4 multipliers. The overall payout of that block is boosted by the product of all multipliers that participate in that combo with a maximum of 256x.
