A lot of modern slot games love to incorporate jewels and precious stones as they are seen by many as a primary sign of wealth and luxury.
Jewel Strike is one of these games, and it looks absolutely brilliant. The game is designed by Blueprint Gaming so you can generally expect a slot of high-quality with some great bonus features. The objective of the game is to spin the reels and match groups of jewels so that you can win some big jackpots. The game offers a five reel setup, and we love the graphics and sound effects. It looks ace so check out our review below.
The game to us seems like a good option for novice players as it is really easy to pick up and play. We had great fun overall, and there are 10 paylines in total so there are a number of ways in which you can pick up winning combinations. There are some additional bonus features to keep things ticking over nicely, and we like the game a lot because it has plenty of charm. Its simplicity is great, and we cannot really find anything wrong with it. Check it out if you are a slot novice looking for a place to being spinning.
If you have played slots before then you will probably be aware of the wild symbol. The wild symbol substitutes for most other symbols on the reel and helps players pick up additional wins by increasing the likelihood of accumulating winning combinations. For Jewel Strike, the game does it slightly differently as there is no wild or scatter symbols at all. This might confuse some players as there are no winning combinations being formed as a result which may disappoint certain players. However, there are bonus features to enjoy which make up for the lack of wilds.
This bonus round is activated during the base game at random intervals and during any spin a massive 3X3 symbol can appear on the reel in any position. The remaining reels will then cease spinning and help the player guarantee a winning combination. This can be a big or small win, and it is a simple random feature that is loads of fun. What we like about it is that it sort of acts like a wild combination without the need to worry about landing the wild symbol so just watch out for that all important 3X3 and you will win eventually.
You could argue that Epic Reels is, even more, fun than Colossal Reels and there is a big button on the game interface below the reel itself labeled "EPIC REELS." This gives the player a chance to up their bet in exchange for getting rid of some of the lower value symbols. It is split into 3 sections, and you can receive multipliers up to 20X which is pretty decent. This is determined by how many symbols you can eliminate, and it can result in some big wins.
