Hot Gems Slot Machine Review

Hot Gems is a 5 reel, 25 line Playtech video slot with a cascading symbols feature and a free spins bonus. The game has a mining theme with various gems on the reels and well as a miner, a lamp and a pick. Top line win is 5,000 coins during regular play and this is boosted up to a possible 25,000 coins on the free spins.

Unlike most of the other Playtech video slots which have a 0.01 minimum coin size, Hot Gems starts with a 0.20 coin size which means the lowest max bet is 5.00. We're not sure why Playtech decided to start with this coin sizes but it does mean that the game is really only for those willing to bet at least 5.00 per spin. If you have a big budget you can play for as much at 625.00 per game.

Hot Gems has a cascade feature known as Collapsing Reels. The way this works is that any winning combination is paid and then the winning symbols are removed for more symbols to drop on to the screen. The cascades keep going until no win is present which means you can get a lot of extra action on each paid spin.

The Wild symbol on Hot Gems only appears on the middle three reels so you cannot get five wilds. The wild does substitute for everything but the scattered Hot Gems logos and the Free Spins scatters so it does come in handy making up the five of a kind pays.

Top line win is 5,000 coins for five of the Miner symbols. There is then a huge drop to the next highest line win which is just 400 coins for five Lamps. From there you have a 300 coin win for five Picks followed by a 200 coin pay for five Carts. After these pays the rest of the five of a kind line wins come in at between 80 and 40 coins.

The Hot Gems logos are scattered but they do not activate any bonus feature. Pays for the scatters range from 1X your bet for two to 100X your bet for five.

The Free Games scatters only appear on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reels and are the key to the free spins and the games biggest jackpots. Get all three on the screen and you win 15 free spins with increasing wilds for each cascade. On each spin each successive cascade increases the multiplier by X1 up to a maximum of X5.

Hit the five Miner symbols with the X5 multiplier and you're looking at a very nice 25,000 coin pay. The free spins cannot be re-triggered but with a bit of luck on the cascades you can get many more wins than would be normally possible without the cascades.

Overall, Hot Gems is another good addition to the growing cascading reels category. We would have liked to see some smaller coin sizes available but as long as you're happy playing at least 5.00 per spin the game is well worth a look.
