Play'n Go are gearing up to launch their next mobile video slot game, just a couple of weeks after releasing the hugely successful Xmas Joker. This time around they've mashed up two familiar slot themes – wizards and gems – to create Wizard of Gems! I know what you're thinking, genius never sleeps.
At a Glance
The pressure is therefore on for the team to keep producing games of a high standard, particularly when considering the huge titles set to be released next month including IGT's Family Guy and Quickspin's Second Strike.
Wizard of Gems is features a familiar 5×3 reel layout with 20 adjustable paylines, populated by Candy-Crush-esque cartoon gems of various shapes, sizes and colours.
There are also wild symbols which take the form of spell-books, and a star symbol which represents the scatter.
This game also features cascading reels reminiscent of Gonzo's Quest. Hit a winning combination and the winning symbols will magically disappear to be replaced by new symbols.
Each new cascade will bring an increased multiplier bonus, from 2x to 3x to 5x!
And that's not all, as hitting three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger ten free spins. During this mode up to an additional nine wild symbols will help you on your way to some huge wins!
My one gripe about this slot so far is that they've borrowed the symbols AND the wizard from a previous slot, Gemix. That's super lazy.
