Burrow deep enough into the Earth and you’ll find these precious stones still in their formative stages.
The Hot Gems game had 5 reels, 25 paylines and you can bet one coin per payline.
The ‘Wild’ symbol is wild and only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4.
There are two bonus features when playing Hot Gems. The first bonus feature is active on every spin. Each time you receive a winning combination, once you have been paid, the symbols that contributed to the win will explode allowing the symbols above them to drop down and new symbols to drop in the top and fill the empty spaces. This process will repeat until no new winning combinations are created.
The second bonus feature is activated when you receive the ‘Complimentary Spins’ symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5. When this happens you will be awarded 15 complimentary spins. During the complimentary spins will function as normal except that each winning combination will increase the multiplier that will be applied to the next win by one to a maximum of five. The first non-winning combination resets the multiplier to one.
To be completely fair, the Collapsing Reels feature is nothing new and the house edge is larger than you could find with other games that offer the same feature.
