Mega Gems Game Characteristics
Mega Gems has a frameless, partitioned and dark 5X3 grid that is set on a starry cyan polka dotted background. There are ten two-way adjustable paylines (six options; lined along the margins), nine symbols, eleven coin denominations, ten bet levels, 660 total bets, locked wild reel, retriggerable free re-spins, neither a bonus game nor a side game, and usually pays from $5.00 to $2500.00.
Mega Gems has two special symbols and seven ordinary symbols. Special symbols: the free respin-triggering and substituting wild is the honeycomb-like, six-cell and multicolored brand logo; and the jackpot-triggering feature is a dotted, multicolored and vertical “JACKPOT”.
Ordinary gems: octagonal sapphire; square cut emerald; round cut amethyst; briolette imperial topaz; cyan diamond; round cut ruby; and citrine diamond.
The Mega Gems coin denominations: $0.01, $0.02, $0.03, $0.04, $0.05, $0.10, $0.15, $0.20, $0.25, $0.50, and $1.00. Optional bet levels: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. Optional number of paylines: 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, and 10. Minimum bet: $0.01. Maximum bet: $100.00.
The $100.00 bet offers these highest Mega Gems payouts for three, four, and five winning combinations. Sapphire pays $500.00, $2000.00, and $2500.00. Emerald pays $250.00, $600.00, and $1200.00. Amethyst pays $100.00, $250.00, and $600.00. Imperial topaz pays $80.00, $200.00, and $500.00. Cyan diamond pays $70.00, $150.00, and $400.00. Ruby, or citrine diamond pays $50.00, $100.00, and $250.00.
Whenever it fully appears anywhere in the three inner reels, the hexagonal-celled substitute is magnified before being replaced by a green, blue and purple “wild” reel that is locked for at least one of the following free re-spin—the wild can be locked multiple times as long as another wild appears in the subsequent free re-spin.
Three “JACKPOT” features may land within the three inner reels, thereby—exclusive to the $100.00 maximum bet—triggering Mega Gems’ progressive jackpot that is capped $200000.00.
The good Mega Gems software features: supports both mobile and desktops; quick spin; and its 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 40, 50, and 100 autospins can be preset to stop after a specified maximum loss, or after a particular won amount, or after hitting the jackpot. The sound effects: clinking, jingling, and rattling. The animated 3D graphics include dolly zoom, visual remarks (like “nice, “great”, and “excellent”), colorful starry spinning effects, glitter effect, and glistening polka dots.
