Gemstone Jackpot is a gemstone based online slot game from the software developer Novomatic. The game features bright colours, and a very easy to use simple interface. This slots game was launched in August 2014 so is a relatively new addition to the Novomatic stable, but still has quite a decent following, especially among less serious players and novices.
The game boasts three rows and five reels at the screen of the game. Gemstone Jackpot has ten instantly active lines and it is possible to stake from1 to 1000 credits on each of them. The game does not feature any wild or scatter symbols, or multipliers. It does have a lock and spin feature and a bonus Gamble Game, but that’s it.
For all these reasons Gemstone Jackpot is only really recommended for beginners. Gemstone Jackpot is available on mobile platforms as well, being supported by both Android and iOS via a non-downloadable app developed in HTML5.
Symbols, Look and Feel
Gemstone Jackpot has a very simple and easy to understand interface, and a very convenient control panel. All the gaming symbols in the game are represented by gemstones of different colours and are pretty self-explanatory.
The gemstones come in only seven colours and all have the same shape. The white diamond pays out the most, and there are no scatter or wild symbols at all. Five of a kind of the white stone in a row from left to right will earn a player 2000 coins. Players can choose the number of lines that they would like to pay as well as the amount of their bet. Lines go up to ten active ones only.
The paytable is visible with just one click, which is a good thing to know before you start to play. Minimum coins are just four per line and goes up to 1000.
Special Feature Lock and Spin
Gemstone Jackpot does have a special feature, this is called Lock and Spin and locks all of the symbols in a winning pattern and spins all of the rest without charge. All new combinations are paid out on top of the previous win. If there is another win while this feature is active, it to will lock into place and the rest will continue to spin. So technically you will simply add win to win.
The feature ends when there is not any winning combination and the game gets back to normal. This is where the jackpot can be won. Please note that traditional free spins are not provided.
Another feature is the gambling feature. The player has the possibility to stake the entire payoff received during the spin in the gambling feature. Basically you have to guess the colour of a face down card. If you guess correct, your winnings will be doubled. If you are wrong, all your bets are lost to the house. The maximum number of coins available in this feature is a whopping 5 million, meaning a player has the opportunity to claim quite a decent payout.
