The Graphic Design
The layout of this free online slot game was clean but the graphics of the background and the individual symbols are a bit too much. We did feel that the graphics were quite tasteless and looked a little overbearing to be honest. We understand that the game is called Glitter Gems but I think we all expected something a bit less glittery. We do feel that the quality of the game would have been increased if the graphics were less overbearing.
How Much Can We Bet?
This Glitter Gems online slot game gives the player many choices in how much they can bet. The player can bet anywhere from 0.01 and 100.00 per line bet and up to 30 paylines. That means that the player can bet anywhere from 0.30 to 3000.00. If you don’t want to play for real money, you can play for free. If you are feeling a bit braver, you can play for real money. Playing for real money allows you to get these amazing payouts that the game offers in real cash.
Did Someone Say Choices?
This free Glitter Gems slot game has got all the options you could want. If you enjoy playing on computer, feel free to continue doing that. If you are more of a mobile kind of person, this game is a great choice for you. This online slot is mobile-optimised meaning you can play on your mobile devices and tablets. There is no download needed to play.
There are two other things that this game allows its players to choose. The player can choose the number of paylines and the line bet. This game certainly encourages the players to choose to play with maximum paylines (30) as they only allow you to change this value by going in the settings menu screen.
A Word About the Symbols
There are many interesting symbols in this game that we did appreciate. We had high-paying blue diamond symbols which are also scatter symbols. There are many symbols such as the red seven, purple seven, dollar sign, pair of dice, gold gem, Jack, King, Queen, Ace, number 9, number 10 and the mixed colour seven symbols. The highest payout we receive is from landing 5 blue diamond symbols in one payline as the player receives an amazing sum of 300,000.00.
The scatter symbols have a special functionality within the game. If the player lands 3 or more scatter symbols in the game, the player receives 8 free games. That’s a major opportunity to win some great prizes. Apart from the scatter symbol we also find the wild symbol. This wild symbol substitutes any symbol in the game other than the scatter symbol and these can be found on reels 3, 4 and 5.
A Better Alternative?
Although, graphics aside, we enjoyed playing this online slot game, we were on the hunt to find a better game that we could truly enjoy. We found that 88 Wild Dragon by Booongo, which although offering less paylines (20 compared with 30) and less betting range (0.20 to 100 compared to 0.01 and 3000.00), the graphics design and background music of 88 Wild Dragon made the playing experience a lot better and more fun. We found that both games had special symbols (wild and scatter) and offered the player free spins.
Is This Game for You?
If you would like a game which has overbearing graphics but simple gameplay, you may consider this free Glitter Gems slot game by Ainsworth as a good option to choose. We do feel that the designers of the game really put their heart and souls into designing this game and whilst they did a great job keeping the gameplay as simple as possible, they overdid the graphics part of the game.
We still felt that this game was worthwhile playing and we really enjoyed all the options we were given, be it the paylines number, the betting range or the platform on which the game is played. The player can bet any range from 0.01 and 3000.00 which is perfect for any type of player. Apart from this, the player can opt to play for free or play for real money. Worth giving it a shot.
