About the Game

Lightning Gems is a 5 reel, 10 payline slot game. Bets can be placed from between 15p up to £150. There’s also huge jackpot on offer up to 20000 coins.

Visually, the game is very arresting yet fairly simple. The reel is set on a distant planet with soaring mountains and fields under a starry night sky. The symbols themselves are slightly animated and sparkle. The music also adds a fantastical element with a chirpy beat.

The symbols are glinting gemstones of different colours and shapes. The lower paying symbols are the smaller stones representing card suites such as the red heart and the yellow diamond. These will pay between 2 and 25 coins for 5 of a kind. Next up are the larger oval gems which will pay between 40 coins and 125 coins for 5 of a kind.

Some of the game’s main features include:

  • WILD this is the golden ornament which will pay up to 500 coins for 5 of a kind and replace all other symbols except the scatter.
  • WILD NUDGEone of the game’s main features, this bonus will be activated when wilds have just been missed and it can also be played during the free games bonus rounds. The reel will nudge the display down or up so you can snatch that winning wild and the rewards.
  • WILD WINSWilds will randomly appear on the reels and can be won in both the base game and the free games rounds.
  • FREE GAMESthis feature will be launched by 3 of the scatter symbol (the ice blue gem with stones around it) which can award up to 2,000 times your bet. This one is a whopper of a feature as not only will you win up to 20 free spins, 50 extra wilds will be added to the reels.

The Verdict

Lightning Gems looks like a complicated and very intricate game, just by its superb appearance and soundtrack alone but this is not the case. Although it is extremely easy on the eye, the game itself is relatively simple. Although it hosts a range of bonus features which add variety to the game, each one is easy to look out for and not overly complex. This is also a great game for those looking to win big.
