The Mega Gems slots game is produced by BetSoft. BetSoft are one of the smaller slot development companies on the market at the moment and have recently started offering their own casino platform. The company was founded in 2006, entering the slots market 4 years later. Betsoft do not always publish the Return to Player (RTP)/House Edge information for their slots games within the game help files, meaning that we often need to refer to RTP provided by an operator. As such we know that the house edge for Mega Gems is 4.82%.
The Mega Gems game has 5 reels and each reel is 3 symbols high. The game plays over 10 paylines from both left to right and right to left.
Wild – The “7 Hexagons” symbol is Wild, substituting for all symbols. Wild symbols can only appear on reels 2, 3, and 4 and will always expand to fill the reel when they do appear. Wild symbols also trigger a re-spin, which will continue to trigger as long as Wild symbols are revealed.
Jackpot Symbol – The Jackpot symbol spells out “Jackpot” in multi-coloured letters and will trigger the game’s jackpot. To do so you need to reveal 3 complete symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 on a single spin. To earn the Jackpot prize you need to be betting the maximum amount.
Mega Gems is a fairly simple offering from BetSoft. It lacks the usual ingenuity that you would normally associate with a BetSoft, which means it comes as a fairly big disappointment. There is only the one feature to mention, a jackpot bonus that you need to be betting the maximum amount to trigger. There are Wilds and they do trigger re-spins but that is everything that this game has to offer. There is also not much to look at, something you could say about most gem related games. As for the house edge, it is much higher than we would like to see, meaning there is essentially nothing here for us to recommend.
