Hot Gems is an exciting fruit machine available at Gala Casino and developed by Playtech. It has 25 pay lines, five cascading reels, and a generous free spins feature. It borrows heavily from popular jewel-based puzzle games like Bejewelled, and it really manages to capture the charm of those games.
Hot Gems has coin sizes ranging from 20p to £25, and since you can choose which of the 25 win lines is active, bets range from 20p to £625. The max line-jackpot is 5,000 coins, which is worth as much as £125k at the max bet. Hot Gems also uses cascading reels. They spin to seed the board, but as squares are vacated by winning combos, the reels cascade to fill in those spaces. This makes it possible to win multiple times on the same pay line during a single spin.
The win odds on this fruit machine are best when all 25 lines are active. What that means is that this is not a fruit machine for low rollers. Players who choose to play Hot Gems should be willing to wager at least £5 per spin. If you’re willing to do that, Hot Gems has a number of great features to take advantage of, including a wild symbol, two scatter symbols, and a bonus game. In addition, all free spins have a win multiplier that increases with each cascade up to 5x.
Hot Gems is a fruit machine with distinct gameplay and style. It is playable at Gala Casino in both a real cash mode and a free practice mode. Try it free, and then if you decide to play for real, take advantage of the £200 welcome package that Gala is currently offering.
