Crystal Gems Slots

Crystal-GemsCrystal Gems is a game that was created by Microgaming’s developers, and which has a theme inspired by crystals and by gems, though you will mostly see the gemstones on its reels. The mix of gemstones and poker cards which serve as its symbols is probably not going to impress too many players, and the design feels quite old.

You get 5 reels in Crystal Gems, and on them a total of 25 paylines can be formed. The slot’s wilds, free spins, random multipliers, scatters and mystery awards would be the ones that form the feature list. As for the top jackpot, its value is at $4,000.

Features of Crystal Gems

The features that you will get from Crystal Gems include wild symbols, scatters, multipliers and free spins. These are all standard features in modern slot machines, but it’s a bit of a surprise that Crystal Gems gets them all, since its look is not the best.

The Wild symbol is easy to recognize, having the word as a Logo on it, plus various gemstones arranged all around it. While most of the combinations it forms directly aren’t impressive payout wise, the big prize, the one offered for five symbols, looks quite good, with a 2,000x line bet multiplier promised for it. Wild symbols are going to be used as regular substitutes for the most part, but they get better once the free spins are started.


Free Games Feature

The Mining Cart symbol is the slot’s scatter, which you can use to trigger the free spins. Having 5, 4 or 3 of these symbols, anywhere on the reels, will bring you a round with 12, 10 or 8 spins, respectively.

Wild symbols get some multipliers to apply to wins formed with their help, but only during the free spins. The random multiplier will be at x2, x3 or x4.


In addition, you get a cash prize for each gemstone which makes an appearance on the reels, but only for the duration of the free spins is this possible. The prize is at 5 times the line bet.

Mystery Award

From time to time, at the end of a base game spin, you will be offered a simple picking bonus feature. You have to choose one of three available crystals, and you get the prize mentioned by it.

Betting options and jackpots

The game uses more coins than they are worth, up to 20 of them being used on each line, while their values reach only $0.10. The line bet you get from this combo is at $2 at most, while the total for 25 lines is $50.

If you get the wild symbol to form a combo of five icons, it will pay you 2,000x, which would mean 40,000 coins here, but with a laughable value of only $4,000.

Design and symbols

The action in Crystal Gems takes place right next to the entrance to a mine where these precious stones are taken out of the ground. You see it above, with a beautiful gold like frame around the entrance. On the reels, the symbols are poker cards or gemstones, and neither look particularly impressive. In most ways, the game is quite boring, but at least it’s not ugly.


Symbols: Wild Gems (2,000x, wild), Mine Cart (scatter), Diamond (400x), Emerald (300x), Ruby (200x), Blue Gem (200x), Orange Gem (200x), Ace (150x), King (150x), Queen (100x), Jack (100x), 10 (100x) and 9 (100x).

Is It Worth Playing?

I’m definitely not a fan of the slot machines that are filled with gemstones, but I’m sure they have their own fans since so many of them exist. Give it a chance if you’re a fan of the genre and if you prefer simpler slot machines.

This Crystal Gems slot is offered by all online casinos with Microgaming software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
