Hot Gems By Playtech For UK Online Slots
Gem-themed UK Online Slots may be a fairly over-saturated market now, but when Playtech released their title Hot Gems in 2012, it was all the rage! The simple and instantly accessible user interface allows you to stare into a mining pit and the transparent 5 x 3 reel set will depict only mining-themed symbols.
The title is available to spin from 25p* - £25* on all devices, and the return to player just fall short of the industry average at 95.99%, but don’t let that put you off giving this solid slot a spin. Players using the max bet limit can anticipate wins as high as 5,000* their stake, and despite the age of this slot game, there is a number of intriguing and incredibly rewarding bonus features.
Payouts And Symbols
The main event in Hot Gems is the free spin feature that comes with collapsing reels and a progressive win multiplier that increases with every reaction win. In the main mode of play, you will benefit from scatter pay symbols and wild symbols. The lower half of the pay-table is taken up by 6 colourful and shiny gemstones, while the standard premium symbols include minecarts full of shiny multicoloured gems, pickaxes, lamps and the miner. The miner can award up to 100*, 250* or 1,000* coins every time you find 3, 4 or 5 of them on a pay-line.
The wild symbols are clearly labelled, they don’t have their own value, but they can step in for all standard symbols to increase the number of successful spins.
Scatter Pay Symbols
The Hot Gems logo symbol is the scatter pay symbol, every time you catch 2, 3, 4 or 5 of them in any position on the reels, you will bank 1x*, 4x*, 20x* or 100x* your total stake, respectively.
Free Spin Feature
It will take a different scatter symbol to trigger the free spin bonus feature. 3 or more of them across reels 1, 3 and 5 will trigger the feature and initially award 15* free games, but you could see the free spin session extended by the collapsing reels feature that will trigger every time you create a winning combination. If you really get on a roll, you could bring a progressive win multiplier into play.
