Lucky Symbols in the Night
Gems Of The Night is about jewels and features a bunch of beautiful cats jumping around on the reels. An original combination, and perhaps these “jewels of the night” are the eyes of the cats themselves, reflecting the moonlight? We may never know, but Gems Of The Night plays on that mystery and delivers an elegant, albeit rather dark atmosphere.
The background shows the dimly lit silhouette of a city fast asleep, while the command bar and metallic frame around the screen are quite typical for any other Merkur game. In terms of sheer graphic quality, Gems Of The Night is quite nice to look at even if it lacks the impressive 3D animations that other developers such as Endorphina have accustomed the players to.
Choose a wager and get ready to spin
In terms of gameplay only, Gems Of The Night is a textbook example of basic rules. The 5 reels contain 10 paylines, with a betting range going from 0.10 to 20 credits when playing on all lines. The plus and minus buttons of the command bar will let you adjust your settings freely. Use the bet max and autoplay shortcut if you want to speed up the game a little.
As mentioned previously, Gems Of The Night has a rather high volatility that technically makes scoring prizes regularly a little bit tougher than average. That being said, we were still able to land some of the most modest payouts quite often as we tested the game.
As in most Merkur games, you can also play the optional card and ladder mini games to try and double up each of your cash prizes. The paytable of the game is full of card icons, jewels and beautiful felines, with a maximum reward of x500 waiting to become yours. To help you achieve that, and more, the developers have added some special functions in Gems Of The Night.
Two Powerful Bonuses
The two special functions in Gems Of The Night are classic and yet quite generous. Start with the diamond, which is the wild card of the game and can replace the basic symbols at will. Diamond combinations can also be worth up to x2000 on their own, although scoring such a precious combo might prove challenging.
The green cat’s eye is a scatter, worth up to x1000 in any position on the reels. Now that is a relatively more accessible big win, with 3 or more scatters also triggering a bonus round of 15 free spins. During these free games, win multipliers going up to x9 will be awarded as well.
Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night
Gems Of The Night might be a classic slot game with a higher variance than average, the beautiful graphics and very generous bonus features make up for it quite easily. Testing the game, we managed to score plenty of decent wins quite early and scatter wins will be absolutely within your reach as well.
If you are looking for a classic – but not too classic – slot game, then Gems Of The Night is a great choice indeed. If you want to go full old-school. Seven Kraze is another Merkur game with lower volatility and a simple casino theme that should fit your needs perfectly.
