is one of RTG’s latest releases and includes some of their latest features. The main theme revolve around crystal gems like diamonds and emeralds, basically a flashy jewel slot game. 5 reels with 25 pay lines with a minimum bet of $0.25 and a max of $5 like any other Real Time Gaming slot game. It includes two progressive jackpots, expanding wild, a scatter multiplier, a new re-spin feature and 15 free spins as the main bonus round.
The graphics are modern and colorful with video animations whenever a combo is triggered, but no special second screen for the bonus round of storyline behind it. There is a type of atmospheric background music, not the usual over-hyped frantic music from adventure slots, this is more of a calm tune. One major issue we saw with this slot is the sound effects mess up the chill out tune from the music. These sound effects can be tuned down or shut down completely if you wish to focus on the game.
Symbols and Features
All symbols represent colorful and well cut gems that glitter on the screen. The background is some type of cavern with stalagmites and dripping water, which gives it an earie atmosphere combined with the slow music.
An auto spin feature is available.
Wild Gem – Not exactly a gem, more of the brand of the game. The wild acts as a joker and replaces any other symbol in the game increasing the chances of winning. In this game it will also expand on reels 2, 3 and 4.It will substitute everything except the scatter and bonus bet symbol. Expanded Wilds are columns that expand to cover the entire screen, increasing the wild’s reach to all lines you are playing, it will also multiple your winnings by 2x. Expanding wilds will also give a free spin.
Free Games Diamond – A scatter icon that multiplies your win and triggers the 5 free spin bonus.
Bonus Bet Gem – Another scatter that multiplier your winnings.
Other symbols include emerald, diamond, amethyst, ruby and other special jewels. As the game launches we will know the payment of each.
A Wild Gem will give a free re-spin, which is just one free spin with an expanded wild column. This feature can be re-triggered.
3 or more Free Game symbols give 15 free spins. During this round you might trigger more re-spins, additional 15 free spins and scatters. The profit probabilities are huge. Only lands on reels 2, 3 and 4.
There are 2 progressive jackpots, a minor and a major. Progressive means the winning prize increases all the time as players across different casinos playing the same game increase the pot prize.
The minor jackpot begins its countdown from $250 and the major jackpot from $1,000. A cool feature from RTG is there is no special requirement to win a jackpot, just play no matter how much you bet, if you are lucky the pot might land on your game.
Gemtopia is the latest release of RTG and there is some real hype around it. The bonus features seem to be a little more rewarding and the calm tune to it will make it a favorite for many players. The free spin and re-spin features seem promising, let’s hope for a large player RTP during its launch days. We are certain the jackpot will fall somewhere between the first and second month to recall attention.
