Gems Gone Wild

Gems Gone Wild is Red Tiger Gaming’s answer to NetEnt’s Starburst – with 5 reels and 20 paylines, it can be played from 20p a spin on all devices. Jewel themed, this game is all about the spinning circles that can appear around any symbol – this makes that symbol wild which gives you a free re-spin with the wild(s) locked in place. If more wilds appear, you will more re-spins which can lead to huge wins.

Gems Gone Wild is a super simple jewel-themed slot powered by up and coming developer Red Tiger Gaming. It’s played with a 5 reel, 20 payline game engine and comes with randomly transforming wilds with re-spins. Play from between 20p and £500 per spin.

Set against a purple-tinged, star-filled backdrop, the reels include a selection of 8 brightly colored gemstone symbols. You’ll need to find 3 on 1 of the game’s 20 paylines to create a winning combination.

Prizes range for a very minimal 2 coins if you manage to land 3 of the pink gemstone up to a far more impressive 300 coins if you hit 5 of the orange circular jewel. There’s also a wild that awards 20, 200 or 600 coins for landing 3, 4 or 5 of them on a payline.

You’ll notice that there aren’t any scatters which means there aren’t any free spins – in fact, there aren’t any specific bonus features on offer at all. A game with no extras at all would be a boring one but Gems Gone Wild comes with a very tidy base game goodie that can reap rich rewards.

On any spin, watch out for the spinning circles that can appear around any symbol – these can explode into life and turn that symbol or better still multiple symbols wild. You’ll also be awarded a re-spin with the newly created wilds frozen in place. If any new wilds land on this spin, they too will be locked in position and another re-spin will follow. These re-spins keep on coming until there’s a spin with no new wild.

And that’s about it as features go – thankfully, the one on offer is a good one. The circles will tease you from time to time by not delivering the wild. Land multiple on the same spin and the results can be pretty spectacular. We managed to win 100 times our stake from a single spin after a particularly nice combination. We’d put the variance in the medium range.

Slickly designed and boasting a quality feature, Gems Gone Wild is a simple but hypnotic slot.
