So How Much Do We Have to Bet?
Well, that is up to you really. Why don’t you try this game for free! Yes, that’s right. You can play for free. Try before you buy! Obviously if you want to play for real money you will have to place a bet but this bet can be as small as 0.20 and as large as 200.00. You can play as many times as you want! Seriously this is all in your hands. You have full control.
It’s actually not complicated. In reality, the only thing you do have to decide is how much money you want to bet. There’s even a shortcut to place the max bet. Because as you know, the higher the bet, the better the prizes! Once that’s decided and out of the way, you click on the spin button and you leave it up to the game. Easy! See! We told you!
Almost Feels like Magic
If you are a fan of gem collecting games, you’re going to love this one. The free Lightning Gems slot is a fun way to dig deep for those great prizes. You can not only collect beautiful gems (which animate and look shimmery and gorgeous in the light) but you can also collect special symbols, known as scatter symbols or wild symbols. We don’t know which we like best. The wild symbols or the scatter symbols.
The wild symbols, as with most online slots, are substitutes for any other symbol…except of course for the scatter symbols…cos that would make it too easy and where’s the fun in that?! So, what are these scatter symbols we speak of? The scatter symbols are collected to gain free games. If you manage to collect 3 or more of those scatter symbols (they must occur simultaneously on screen), you land yourself 10 free games! Great, right?
Even if you don’t land yourself one of these great game special features, you can still win prizes from these great gem symbols. The player needs to land 3 or more identical symbols in a payline and you will receive a prize according to the amount declared in the pay table. To access the pay table and other important information, you can easily access the pay table from the information section from the settings menu.
What Does This Remind Us Of?
The idea of this game is not an original one. There are plenty other games out there which revolve around the principle of the average slot game rules with 5 reels and 3 rows and under 20 paylines. If you feel like you’ve seen this game before, you probably remember seeing the gameplay before. We must say, the graphic design was quite unique so we’re not criticizing the design of the game. The rules are simple and memorable which makes it easier on the player.
Another game that we can compare the free Lightning Gems slot by NextGen Gaming is Peony Ladies by Spinomenal. The premise of the game is simple and is based on Japanese women. There are 5 reels of 3 rows each and there are 15 paylines. This is similar to Lightning Gems except that Lightning Gems only has 10 paylines. The graphics in this game are beautifully done but we cannot find any animations in this game.
Both games have wild symbols and scatter symbols. In Peony Ladies, three or more scatter symbols pay three times the total bet and give the player 10 free spins. In Lightning Gems, three or more scatter symbols also trigger 10 free games. Both are great online slots but we think that Lightning Gems was a lot more exciting.
