Play ’N Go is back with another super volatile video slot in Perfect Gems. This 6 reel, cascading reels game is played on expanding reels where the number of ways to win can reach 21,609. Each base game cascade win increases a multiplier by 1x. There’s also a bonus round that awards between 9 and 27 free spins (initially) with unlimited multipliers. Play this high variance game on all devices from between 20p and £100 per spin.
An old library is the setting for Perfect Gems. On the reels you’ll find A to 9 royal values as well as 4 higher paying gemstone symbols. The best of these is the blue stone which pays 25 times your bet if you land 6 in combination. Reels 1 and 6 are fixed at 3 symbols high. The reels in between can have up to 7 symbols which can combine to offer up to 21,609 winning pathways.
To get these expanded reels, you’ll need to land matching symbols on a vertical reel and on the horizontal reel above. The symbol then splits into 2 and increases the number of payways. Wilds can hit on the horizontal reel and split all symbols into 2, the only exceptions being the scatters.
The action takes place on cascading reels. After a winner hits, the symbols are removed and new ones replace them. Each successive cascade win increases a multiplier by 1x. This resets following a winless cascade. This is known as the Win Multiplier feature.
Perfect Gems also comes with a Perfect Spins feature. Land 3, 4, 5 or 6 perfect gems scatters and you’ll receive 9, 15, 21 or 27 free spins. If you have a multiplier in play on the triggering spin, it’s carried over into your free spins. The win multiplier doesn’t reset following a winless cascade either. It only increases. Hope to see Perfect Spin scatters during the feature as each one adds 2 extra free spins to your total (with no limits).
The gameplay is slightly unusual for a Play ’N Go video slot. The cascading reels, free spins and expanding multipliers are a good combination though. What’s not unusual for a game from this developer is the variance which is sky high as usual – you can win 5,000 times your bet as usual! If you like volatile action, then Perfect Gems is a shiny offering that’s well worth investigating. I also recommend you play Crystal Sun by Play ‘N Go which is the volatile version of NetEnt’s Starburst.
