Sparkling gem themed slots have been all the rage for a couple of years now. Many point to NetEnt’s Starburst as the originator of the trend, but it’s tricky to really pinpoint where it all comes from. One thing is for sure though – almost any casino you care to point to will now feature a gem themed game for the simple reason that it’s the kind of game people want to play. The latest casino to jump on the bandwagon is Mr Spin Casino – the newest addition to the family of casinos including mFortune and PocketWin – with its new slot Jewelette. How does this new mobile slot measure up to other gem games already on the market and to the other unique games already found at Mr Spin?

This 5 reel, 15 payline is definitely at home at Mr Spin, combining as it does the accessible and fun simplicity cartoon graphics, with the utterly playable fun of modern graphics and gamplay. The casino makes all its own games in-house, and Jewelette is no exception to this, meaning there’s only one place you can possibly go to enjoy this mobile slot.
This exclusivity might add a little spice to proceedings, but we have to be honest, seeing as this is fundamentally a gem themed game, it’s not like you can’t find something similar elsewhere (though, keep reading for info on one special and totally unique feature).
The symbols on the game are, as you might expect, gems (though, admittedly very basically rendered), coloured letters and roulette wheels – which we’ll get to in a minute. Because the 15 paylines are adjustable, and you can bet anything from 2p to £95 per line, the game has a minimum bet of 2p, and a maximum bet of £1,425! If there’s ever been a game which is set to appeal to a broad base of players, this is it!
Like the majority of Mr Spin slots you can play right now, you’ll find that – in the base game at least – the only real bonus features you’re going to enjoy are basic wilds and free spins. Of course, wilds are a staple of slots – always have been, always will be – and those featured on substitute for anything other than the jackpot symbol, and their inclusion in a line can pay a multiplier of anything from 15x to 2,000x your wager.
It’s probably also worth mentioning that – again much like the other slots you can enjoy at Mr Spin – there’s a progressive jackpot up for grabs if you land all five of the ‘Jackpot’. Because this is still a relatively new game, it’s currently not all that impressive, but it’s creeping up bit by bit, and as more people realise how high quality this game is, will surely be worth winning soon enough.
InTouch Games – the software developer behind all the games on Mr Spin, mFortune and PocketWin – definitely has its own style when it comes to making slots. It doesn’t go for anything too flashy, but makes sure that everything is definitely well polished and great looking. They’re also first and foremost a mobile games developer, meaning that you can rely on their games to always perform perfectly on your mobile, and we’re happy to report that Jewelette is no different.
The beauty of their slots is that you download them, meaning that you don’t have to rely on a super internet connection to still enjoy flawless graphics and performance. So long as you have a decent phone to play on, you’ll have no problem running and enjoying Jewelette.
Ok, so, I guess you’ve been wondering what I’ve been going on about all those times I’ve mentioned a unique feature or roulette wheel symbols on the reels, right? Also, I suppose the name Jewelette doesn’t really make a whole load of sense either. Well, let me explain everything – it’s all about the mini game within Jewelette which you trigger when you have the roulette wheels as part of a winning line, and allows you to gamble your winnings from the round on a spin of a roulette wheel!
As you can see from the image above, it’s not a complete, full size roulette wheel, but in many ways that’s an advantage to the player, as there’s fewer places the ball can land. The premise is really simple, and works like a simplified version of the classic casino game; you can choose the numbers 0 – 12, odd or even, red or black, and you can even pick a combination of these by spreading your chips across the board. When you spin the wheel, and the number displayed corresponds to your bets, you’ll get double your wager for outside bets, and 12x your wager for number bets.
I’m a really big fan of this mini game and when I played, I was able to turn a lucky spin into a huge paying roulette win. Not many casino games will offer you the chance to benefit from anything near a 12x multiplier, so although it’s not guaranteed, it’s still pretty generous.
This game isn’t going to blow you away; it joins a long tradition of gem games, of which is certainly isn’t the most impressive or fun, and in true InTouch Games fashion the bells and whistles are kept to a minimum. This all said, there’s plenty of reasons to play Jewelette.
Firstly, its high volatility means there’s big prizes to be won for the patient gambler and that’s not even to mention the fantastic and pretty innovative roulette mini game, which mashes up the game, and really broadens its appeal. If you’re a slots fan with a penchant for roulette, this is most certainly the game for you!
