The Hot Gems slot machine offers users to visit the mines, where they can find a lot of precious stones. This is the device from the manufacturer called Playtech. Each spin during the game in this video slot can reward a user with payouts with multipliers of up to 5000.
The device has 5 reels and 25 fixed paylines. There are a number of advantageous features. Thanks to the wild symbol, users are able to collect winning combinations more often. In addition to that, gamblers can win free spins of the reels. The game uses an avalanche system, thanks to which the winning combination of icons can be formed multiple times during a single spin.
On the control panel of the Hot Gems slot, you can see the Line Bet menu. It is there so that the player can regulate the size of the line bet. By using the buttons with minus and plus, the gambler can choose a sum from 0.01 to 1 credit. The value is then multiplied by 25 times. In such a way, the total bet is formed. It is withdrawn from the player’s account at the beginning of each paid round.
The balance of funds in the game account is shown in the window, in the lower left corner of the screen. The button that looks like a stone with the Spin inscription allows a player to start the game in a manual mode. By using the Auto Play button, the gambler is able to change control of the video slot to automatic mode. The Info button is used to open the payouts table.
As already mentioned in the introduction, the avalanche system is used in the slot machine. After the winning combination is formed, the symbols in it disappear. They are replaced by the icons from the neighboring cells. At the same time, no funds are withdrawn from the player’s account. This continues until new paid combinations cease to be formed. The winning combinations in this video slot consist of 3, 4, or 5 identical images. The exception is the two lowest paid chains. For them, the minimum number is 2.
All the icons used in the Hot Gems video slot are divided into 3 groups:
The most expensive regular image is a portrait of a gnome. The multipliers for it are 100, 250, and 5000. The image of a lantern increases the line bet by 75, 200, and 400 times. The coefficients for the combinations of the pick symbols are 50, 150, and 300, and the railway carriages – 30, 100, and 200.
Icons in the form of precious stones are used similarly to the card symbols:
In the Hot Gems slot, there is a special image in the form of the Wild inscription. It replaces all the regular icons. The wild symbol falls out only on 2, 3, and 4 reels. Accordingly, it cannot bring winnings by itself. The game logo is used as a scatter. It increases the total bet by 1, 4, 20, or 100 times.
The symbol with the Free Games inscription allows you to win free spins of the reels. This bonus is activated when the corresponding symbol drops out simultaneously on 1, 3, and 5 reels. The user receives 15 free spins. During them, there are special rules that make the game even more profitable. With each avalanche, the multiplication factor of the prize payouts increases. Its maximum value is x5.
The theoretical returns percentage of the Hot Gems slot is 95.99%. The game is interesting in that each spin can bring much larger amounts than the payouts table promises. This is possible thanks to the function of avalanches. The most generous winnings can be obtained during free spins.
