The Jewel Box game can be found at casinos offering Play ‘n Go software. Play ‘n Go are a growing provider in the industry and have a rapidly expanding portfolio of both slots games and clients. They do offer a full casino platform, but primarily seem to be used as a bolt on package for extra slots games. Play ‘n Go do publish the Return to Player (RTP)/House Edge information for their slots games within the game help files. As such we know that the house edge for Jewel Box is 4.21%.
The Jewel Box game is made up of 5 reels, each one 3 symbols high. There are 15 paylines, playing from left to right.
Wild – The Wild symbol is a number with a multiplication sign, which will obviously indicate the size of the multiplier on winning rounds. The Wild symbol only appears on the middle reel and can be a 2,3,4 or 5 times multiplier.
Bonus – The Bonus symbol is the “Treasure Chest”.
Bonus – You trigger the bonus feature if you can land the 3 different “Treasure Chest” symbols. When this happens, you will have to choose which one of the three symbols to open, revealing a prize of up to 150 times the original bet.
It’s difficult to know where to begin with Jewel Box. This game has to be considered on of Play ‘n Go’s weakest efforts. The symbols, which the software designers normally make look beautiful, are cheap and nasty looking. The background is a purple sheet with a few ripples in the material. The whole design feels thrown together, creating a game that few of us are going to remember. There is only the one bonus and it’s pretty bland. There are no free spins, which is a crime against slots games and then there’s the House Edge. I’ve seen worse, but with it being higher than what we would consider average there is little to praise about this game.
