Most times I have played a crumbly type slot, no matter what provider is, I usually encountered a weak paytable, which may be a kind of measure that the creators of these games take to prevent the gains from the potential new combinations are very heavy and probably they may be afraid ofsome slots become not financially sustainable for the casino, and in many cases they end up creating slots quite tight unable to really win the hearts of players, well, I think fortunately that's not the case in "Hot Gems" slot produced by Playtech and released in November 2012, which is a game with a pretty decent paytable in my opinion and additionally it has a hit average pretty good, or at least that was my perception.

On the other hand, I think the game design and animation effects are quite nice; sound effects may become rather monotonous, but that is not and aspect without solution, I think beyond their appearance, this video slot appeals more for its good performance, and it is that you have more fun when you're winning and under these parameters I think "Hot Gems" generally let you have fun for a longer time, in my case, I would say that my balance was always maintained at reasonable levels and, reflecting a bit, I think also I was very lucky to not have bad streaks ever I decided to increase my bet level, and now that I think of it, I do not remember having really long losing streaks throughout my playing time, something plausible knowing in advance the nature of these kind of games.

If I was to complain about anything about this slot, I would do it perhaps about the great difficulty I had to get my single round of free spins, and the truth is that contrary to what one might initially think, the fact that more symbols fall to form some new combinations does not seem to represent any significant advantage at the right time of triggering the feature, even so, I had a lot of fun with this game and think also it might be a good choice to try to get some gains.

I think that Hot Gems is the game very few people play in Playtech casinos. When I first tried this game I played it in fun mode because the bet was an incredible 5 euros per spin.

It has 25 lines and the minimum line bet was 0.20 so that’s a total of 5 euros per spin. When you take a closer look at the paytable I don’t think you will even think about depositing and playing because it seems almost impossible to win anything descent here.

When I first played the slot I really liked the intro. It was very funny and gives an illusion of winning big. I have to say this slot reminds me a bit of Betsoft games. It has rolling reels instead of spinning, like Gonzo’s Quest and every winning combination explodes to make way for new symbols to come. If you ever sit down to play this game you will see that usually the most you can win in a single spin is 4-5x bet which isn’t really a lot.

This game has also only one bonus feature and that is the free spins. The bonus feature is pretty hard to activate and you have to get free games symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5. Everyone who plays slots knows that features like this are the most difficult and frustrating to get. Anyway if you do get the bonus round you are awarded with 15 free spins which is descent and for every win in a row the multiplier goes from 1 to 5. Again the most I have won in the bonus round is about 50 x bet. Now here is where the interesting part comes. Whenever I play in some Playtech casino and deposit to take a bonus, I start with some Marvel slot usually Fantastic Four. If I manage to get my balance to 200-300 I go to this game to help me with the wager. I play at 5 euros per spin and I am never down more that 70-80 euros. At that bet going through the wager is easy and fast. I play usually until I get the free spins and go back to the Marvel slots again. In one session I managed to clear over 500 and when I got the free spins I was 80 euros in plus from my original balance.

Maybe it’s just my luck who knows, it’s up to you to try it.

This is a 5-reel slot from Playtech that has 25 paylines and a minimum bet of 0.25 euro!

Because I wanted to try other slots, I decided to try this slot because I liked the theme about mining, gold and gems!

I took a look at the paytable to see what to expect for and I saw that this slot has only free spins feature that is triggered when the scatter symbol appears on reels 1, 3 and 5, very hard to catch in my opinion!

It is identical with Gonzos Quest slot when you are spinning but the features aren’t the same!

I managed to trigger the free spins but only after 40 minutes of playing this slot and I thought that I will be rewarded with a decent amount of money but this didn’t happened!

From the 15 free spins I won only 7 euro, I think that isn’t a nice amount because the number of the free spins was big!

Anyway, I managed to make a small profit at this slot but I don’t think that it has a good payout rate and isn’t good to play when you have a bonus to wager!

The graphics are good, also the theme is interesting and the symbols too so I will give a 9!

The features aren’t something new, the free spins are good but should be triggered in the classic mode, I mean 3 scatters anywhere, but I like it and I will give an 8!


About the payout rate I have to say that I was a little bit disappointed because I was expecting to win a decent amount from the free spins that are very hard to catch!

The gems should be smaller and less shining because you can't watch for a long time at this slot and obviously you can't play it for a couple of hours!

I don’t know why but I’m always thinking that Hot Gems is a 9-payline and I was wondering what the reason is. Maybe because I consider Playtech is the best developer that provide that kind of slots or maybe I guess this slot would fit there better or just its minimal and simple graphics but despite all of these are true but actually it’s a 25-payline slot around a gold, gem mining cartoon theme with very colourful and cute little symbols and decent animations but with not the best visualizations. For my style it seems to be a little bit flippant and I can’t say I’m a big follower of its style.

The slot’s unique game solution is that the game doesn’t use the traditional ‘reel’ technology much more it chose the ‘falling symbol’ technique when the figures are falling down and if a winning combination is completed all the symbols above the good line falls down one spot giving chance and spot for new entry emblems and new arrangement. Basically, this feature opens the way for an automatically re-spin but the slot offers the well-known free spin feature too if the special Free Games labeled figures appear on the first, third and fifth reels at the same time and here after every wins the possible new wins on the new table are counted x2 multiplier and so on until it reaches max. x5 multiplier or a non-winning spin.

The Gold-digger character can provide the best five of a kind type win with its award 5000 coins while the Wild only land on the three inner reels without multiplying ability. Hot Gems emblem is the scatter and 5 of them anywhere on the reels result a 100 times of total bet win.

I think what it lacks of visual appearance for me it gives back at game segment. I’m not saying this is the best paying slot that ever made but in my experience it has a surprisingly good payout system at least it just favours me often. Looking at the paytable we can’t see there any eye-popping numbers or unique features but the winnings are very frequently occurs here, much more times what I initially thought when I started to play this game anno. Unlikely other Playtech slots where I had successes in the past, it is not a one-time wonder and really became a constant playing partner in years. So I really can recommend this game everyone who loves the very solid games with decent but average features and don’t bother a little childish interface.

Hot gems it is an awful game from playtech. This game has 25 paylines, and using same system as gonzo's quest, symbol in winning combination destroyed, and other comes. But apart from gonzo's quest there is no any multiplier during base game. Also game looks not interesting and a bit dark, while gems means a lot of colors.
This game had only one feature, which can be triggered by hitting symbols free spins on reels 1 and 3 and 5. I hate when feature should be triggered this way, because most time there will come two free spins symbols without third.

Also base game simply can't pay, and max win for 5 best paying symbols in base game is x 300 total bet, i never get any 3 of this symbols, so how can i wait to see 5 of them. My best result at base game was x 40 total bet on dafa888 casino. When i hit 3 free spins symbols, i was awarded 15 free spins with multiplier like in gonzo's quest, after i get one win i get x 2 multiplier, when i get second multiplier is x3, and such way up to x 5, which looks really poor, and makes hard to win something really decent. Max win on single spin is 1500 x total bet, but i can't realise how to get it, because best paying guys simple did not come on reels at all.

I rate this game with 4 stars, it is one of the worst playtech game, which not interesting, which also spinning slow, and which never award any decent win. My best feature win is x 70 total bet, and this is compared to high hard is to trigger this feature. I will not play this game again, it is awful. If playtech decide to add multiplier in base game, and increase multiplier for free spins, probably slot looks much more interesting, but right now no one can be happy with this game.

Hot Gems game is powered by Playtech. this is a pretty cool game and i find it very interesting. Usually i dont play games with rolling feature a lot because it is difficult to get the bonus, but on this game it is much easier and you have a chance to win big. there are 25 lines in this game and only one feature.

That is a free spins feature and it is really cool. To get the free spins i had to get three free spins symbols on the first, third and fifth reels. I really don't know why there is a picture of a free spins symbol on the second reel on this page, i play this game on Boyle casino and it is only on the 1,3 and 5 reels. Once i got that i was awarded with 15 free spins with collapsing reels multiplier. I got this feature few times and once i got it on a €1.25 bet, max i won was around €75. The wilds come out a lot in this game and there is a chance to hit a bit pay. The biggest line pay in this game is 5000x and if you get that in free spins then happy days.

There are also scatters in this game and i had some fun with them. When i started playing i thought that if i get three of them i will get some kind of bonus and i kept playing and all of a sudden got five of them on a €0.25 bet. I got €25 and was waiting for bonus to start but it never did:( Bummer, still a good pay though.If i was to rate this game i would give it 7.5 out of 10.
