BetSoft Gaming has finally finished designing another cracking little slot game that is due to go live on their instant play gaming platform on the 21st of August 2017, and that slot is the very unique looking Giovanni’s Gems slot.
This new slot marks a slightly different direction for BetSoft, who are best known for their range of fixed pay lines and optional pay line 3D slots. What you are going to discover on offer on the Giovanni’s Gems is a Cluster Pays type of playing structure.
Whilst Cluster Pays slots have been available for quite some time online, namely at NetEnt software powered casinos, this is the very first slot from BetSoft that boasts such a playing structure.
The aim of the game is to simply spin in a cluster of at the very least five matching reel symbol anywhere on the screen, and to give you something of an increased chance of doing so the way in which the reel symbols are displayed is via a 7 symbol by 7 symbol grid like formation.
The bigger the cluster of matching reel symbols is the higher in value your winning payout. Once a winning cluster has been formed an Exploding Wins feature is then awarded to you.
That is much like the Rolling Reels feature found on many older slot games and what will happen is that all matching reel symbols that formed a winning cluster pays will be removed from the screen and the reel symbols above then drop down to fill in the gaps on the screen.
As such it is possible to form multiple winning combinations from the base game and once that Exploding Wins feature has been triggered, and it will only stop playing out when no new winning combinations are formed on the screen.
One thing worth knowing about this slot is that due to the Cluster Pays structure you are forced to have to wager at least 30 coins per spin. That is made affordable by the slot having a range of different coin value settings and players can play 30, 60, 90, 120 or 150 coins per spin on their chosen coin value setting.
If all of the above wasn’t enough, you are also going to find a set of free spins can be awarded to you. It is via the scatter symbols that the free spins are triggered.
The scatter symbols do not have to form in a cluster pays type formation on the screen for as long as you get at least five scatter symbol anywhere in view you will then be awarded with a set of free spins. The more scatters that spin in above five in number the more free spins you will then get to play off.
An optional double or nothing gamble game can also be taken when you have spun in a winning cluster of matching reel symbols. That gamble game is a simple playing card predicting game on which you have to guess whether the next card dealt out is going to be red or black to double the value of your base game winning payout!
