Gemstone Jackpot Mobile is one of Novomatic’s earliest games that is now available to play on mobile and tablet! It’s a 5-reel, 10-payline slot game filled with all different sorts of gemstones. The gems that you’ll see on these reels come in all sorts of different shapes and colours and they will absolutely dazzle you with their beauty and sparkle. This is a very retro slot and the background and logo are pretty simple. The sound effects and music of this slot are all very typical for Novomatic so fans of this developer will enjoy hearing the familiarity of the reels clicking into place and the bell ring when a big win happens. Unlike the name suggests, this slot game doesn’t actually have a jackpot as such, but what it does have is huge payouts for when you fill all of the reels with a single, matching symbol. Gemstone Jackpot is absolutely perfect for: slots players who are looking for something old-school; beginners; Novomatic fans; and for players who enjoy other similar slot games, such as: Fruit Drops Mobile, Jewels of the Sea Mobile, Plenty on Twenty Mobile and Sizzling Gems Mobile.
If you’re into sparkly things then you’re absolutely going to love this slot game as all of the symbols are pure gems – no sevens, no bars, no fruits and no card values – just gems! It’s such a simple game and there are 10 fixed paylines which pay from left to right, so matching symbols will need to fall on paylines on consecutive reels starting with the first symbol on the leftmost reel. All of the symbols in this game pay from three or more but some gems pay out far more than others! In ascending order of value, though this isn’t necessarily how valuable they would be in a jeweller’s shop, Gemstone Jackpot symbols are: the orange amber stone, the purple amethyst, the yellow sapphire, the blue sapphire, the green emerald, the red ruby and the dazzling diamond. The paytable is great as it automatically updates payout amounts when you change your bet. To change your bet, just decide how much you want to bet on each of the 10 paylines, and this could be anywhere from 0.01 to 5.00. Just remember that whatever value you choose will be multiplied by 10 for your bet per spin.
Aside from the normal payout values from three to five matches, this slot game also gives out massive payouts for when you’re lucky enough to fill the whole screen with a single symbol! When you fill every single position on every single reel with a matching symbol, the payouts are as follows: the orange gem pays 10x your bet per spin; the purple gem pays out x20 your bet; the yellow gem pays x30; the blue gem pays x40; the green gem pays x50; the red gem pays x100 and the diamond pays x500! Filling all of the reels with the same symbol is made much easier with Gemstone Jackpot Mobile’s Lock and Spin feature. When you spin a winning combination of matching symbols, these symbols will be locked into place by metal cages! They will not be able to move as the cages will bar them from doing so, but the reels will then spin for free and the other symbols will get replaced with new ones. If another of the same symbol lands on the reels, also in a winning position, a metal cage will drop over that symbol too, and you will get another free re-spin and so on, until no more winning symbols appear. Each time the reels are re-spun, your win is added to the previous payout so the payouts from this feature can end up being absolutely humongous! It’s the best thing about this game and your absolute best friend when it comes to going for those big gemstone jackpot wins that come with an entire screen of matching symbols.
As we have already mentioned in this review, Gemstone Jackpot was one of Novomatic’s earliest games and comes with the familiar slot music and sound effects from this developer. Other things that this game has that are typical for Novomatic are the autoplay and gamble features. Autoplay is a fantastic feature for busy players and it enables you to play without constantly clicking to spin the reels. The gamble feature is perfect for those risk-takers among you who want to have a go at multiplying their wins. If you can make it to the top of the gamble steps without making an ill-timed click, you’ll be in for a jackpot of your own!
