Reel Gems Deluxe has 5×3 reels with 20 active lines. The slot’s huge prizes can be up to 1,000x the stake, which is just satisfactory, especially since they depict it as having High instability. When you consider its 96.36% RTP, I think you will be content with what you are getting. As features, the game includes Radiant Spins, Hyperspin options and Free spins.
Betting and Prizes
10 different wager values are available in a different menu which opens up when you click on the button with the stacked coins. The betting options will be somewhere in the range of $0.20 and $100. In return, you have 20 lines with line wagers from $0.01 to $5.
The huge prize of Reel Gems Deluxe only goes up to 1,000x the stake. This is the payout per spin but the free spins can be very powerful.
It might sound like a huge sum of money but the return is not high, at least for a game with high unpredictability. That does not mean there is anything fishy going on, it’s that the math model probably won’t be as rewarding for certain players, which need a high prize/high risk. Then again, things could change if you get different free spins to pay huge.
The RTP is set to the correct level of 96.36%, so it should be a fair game.
Reel Gems Deluxe Slot Features
Triggering through scatter images, you need up to 5 to get 5 to 10 rounds, the free spins can be exciting. They utilize a Radiant Trail for this which can prompt wins from 40x to 1,000x the stake and it depends on the active image.
You start off with the smallest image from the Trail which is the blue jewel. It is stacked on the initial two reels while the other three will spin and give you gems, retrigger images and wilds.
To get another image from the path, you need a Retrigger Image to be completely visible on the 3 reels. It gives you another set of free spins same as those initially triggered but it also moves you to the following image.
You continue doing this and you could eventually end up with the top image stacked on the first two reels and with wins forming on the other three (you need wilds or top images on the others too).
We also have the Radiant Spin which is activated randomly in the base game. It picks a random image to get stacked on the first two reels while the other three get giant wilds and regular gems. It could prompt up to 20 mixes of high paying images and wins of up to 1,000x the stake.
Wild images include the game logo and they can be utilized either as substitutes or in their own wins where they pay up to 50x the stake.
Moving on to the Hyperspins, these are options that can be found in a few Microgaming slot machines and they will permit you to pay for re-spins on individual reels. The higher your chance of forming a combination, the bigger the price of re-spin.
Theme and Design
Try not to expect much from Reel Gems Deluxe. It is a gemstone themed slot machine which has four premium images i.e. gems colored in yellow, red, green and blue, four low value Royals and two feature images i.e. game logo and diamond scatter.
You will see some improvement if you compare this slot and the one from 2010 but that is not saying a lot. Compared with new slot machines and particularly in case you’re into high end designs, it will be a boring option.
Reel Gems Deluxe slot adds a considerable amount to the original recipe, even improves the graphics and it has a lot of potential during the free spins. The Radiant Trail and the promised stacked images from the first two reels are positively unique, so it has that making it work when compared with other high unpredictability options.
