Gameplay review of Gem Rocks Slot

Gem Rocks is a mobile optimised 6-reel video slot that offers an astonishing 4,096 possible ways to win. You can play on your smartphone; tablet or computer, meaning you can hit the jackpot on the go at Gem Rocks slot.

Design

Gem Rocks sports 6 reels, with each reel containing 4 symbols. The symbols are gems of different shapes and colours embedded into rocks just as colourful. Monster Rocks, one rock that extends over multiple reels and symbol spaces, helps you create more winning combinations. Monster rocks can cover 2×2, 3×3, and even 4×4 blocks.

The reels do not spin as we have come to expect from slots, instead the fall down and click into place. Wins take place when matching symbols appear on connected reels from left to right. The amount won depends on how many symbols appear on one reel within that row. All symbols forming part of a winning combination will disappear and their slots filled with new symbols.

This quite unusual for a slot in this day and age, but Gem Rocks feature no wilds, scatters or free spins.

Bonus features and Cash Prizes

Any 3-of-a-kind combination pays out. So landing combinations of 4 or more will increase your payout. In addition, if any of these reels contain two of the symbols that appear in the winning combination, your prize is multiplied. These multipliers are then also multiplied, meaning bigger rewards.

Some symbols are more valuable. For example, the purple diamonds and brown cross, each payout 5, 10, 15, or 20 coins when forming 3, 4, 5, or 6 of a kind winning combinations, while the white, green, aquamarine and blue gems are worth a little more each. The crescent moon pays 10, 15, 25, or 35 coins, but the highest value symbol is the star. It is worth 20, 40, 60, or 200 coins.

Each win is accompanied by a small explosion, after which the new symbols will fall into place. If another win follows a 2×2 Monster Rock will appear. This could help complete another combination. If this leads to another winning combination, a 3×3 Monster Rock appears after the fifth win in a row. This is followed by a 4×4 Monster after your ninth consecutive win. If the monster rock happens to contain a high value symbol, winnings could be substantial.

Betting range

Gem Rocks offers no paylines on which you can place bets, so your only option is to change the value of your coins. The coin value is then multiplied by 50 to calculate the total bet per spin. Bets start from 0.01 to 1.00, resulting in total bets from 0.50 to 50.00.

The low stakes makes this slot more suitable for those on a budget. The low betting ranges also means that your chances to win very big are slim; bit decent wins can be made.
