Jewel Quest Riches has five special symbols and six ordinary symbols. Special symbols: the lion-embossed square cut gold activates the bonus; the wild-and-substitute is a colorful jewel; and the two mystery multipliers are a rectangular mask and a round mask; and the bonus jackpot is associated with a flower vase containing a mask and incense burners.
Ordinary symbols: a blue diamond; a pentagonal ruby; antique cushion cut gold; an emerald; an oval sapphire; and a purple gem.
The Jewel Quest Riches bet sizes: $0.10, (minimum bet), $0.20, $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $2.50, $5.00, and $10.00 (maximum bet).
The $10.00 bet has these Jewel Quest Riches payouts for side-by-side, horizontal and vertical winning combinations. Three matching jewels pay $4.00. Four matching jewels pay $10.00. Five matching jewels pay $20.00. Six matching jewels pay $30.00. Seven matching jewels pay $100.00. Eight matching jewels pay $200.00. Nine matching jewels pay $1000.00. And 10+ matching jewels pay $2000.00.
Winning combinations are cleared to pave way for other cascading symbols. Multiple intersecting combinations are invalid. Symbols replaced after winning combinations result to progressive multipliers that rise from and by 1X up to X12.
Three lion-embossed symbols unlock the Jewel Quest Bonus game, wherein the players are not only offered eight, ten, or twelve free moves at random; but also a starry three-level matching game that progressively unlocks the eight scenic civilizations, namely: Avalon, Riches of El Dorado, Fate of Atlantis, Legend of Ages, Mayan Mysteries, The Endless Isles, Legends of Exiles, and Sands of Pharaohs. Jewel Quest Riches has a X2400 maximum progressive jackpot, which is displayed on the counter to the left of the grid.
Although it keeps on timing out, the good Jewel Quest Riches software: supports desktops and mobile gadgets; has strategically located buttons; and has 10, 25, 50 and 100 automated spins that can be customized based on loss limit (any, or from $0.50 to $25.00) and single win limit (infinite, or between $0.50 to $25.00).
The fast-paced instrumentals conjure up an advanced ancient civilization with its sprawled houses; and blend in with the animated 3D graphics that range from the lone flying bird, smoke-emitting incense burner, and the smoky mouth of the fanged huge ape-like rock carving.
