However, keep in mind that the wild symbol in this game can appear only on reels 2 and 4, and it does not create its own winning combination on a pay way.

When you trigger the Free Spins feature you will be awarded with 15 free spins.

Free spins can be re-triggered during the bonus round, and extra spins will be added to the remaining number of spins.

Re-spin feature enables you to re-spin a reel of your choice while holding the other reels. With this feature you can re-spin a reel at the end of any spin for an additional cost that is calculated in credits, and is calculated separately for each reel. You can re-spin a reel multiple times, and you are only paid out for new winning combos that are formed as a result of a re-spin.

It's been 2 years or so now since Reel Gems made its first appearance as an online game. The Respin feature was something quite new at that time, which not many games have followed suit, for one reason or another, or probably simply because it wasn't attractive enough for players to pick up and play. Each individual reel can be respun to complete a winning combination, but each respin costs money, and can be rather expensive too, as compared to the bet size being played. Whilst this respin feature offers many extra chances for players to make a winning combination, it doesn't always worked as expected, meaning, the winning combination hardly comes in just 1 or 2 respins. More respins only wastes more money, and the resulting win may even come at a big loss! Be very careful when attempting at this Respin feature. It may look nice and tempting, but know its risks too. Don't ever go respinning and respinning. You'd be very surprised at how rapidly your credit balance can go down!

Today, Microgaming has even added a few more newer games to supplement this group of games with the 'Respin' feature. Games like Dragon Dance and Wild Orient, for example, which I have played and reviewed, with no better comments than what you are reading here for Reel Gems. They are all basically the same game but with different icons, using the same basic design, giving out mostly very poor payouts, with hardly any big win potentials. The paytable says it all. The logo 'Reel Gems' is the Wild symbol, appearing only on reels 2 and 4, a true blue dumb symbol that doesn't pay for itself, doesn't double any wins, doesn't expand on the reels, and doesn't even come stacked. The Scatter symbol at least pays 100x the total bet for 5 of them, and getting 3 or more Scatters award a Free Spins game of 15 free spins with all wins tripled.

The paytable says that the Free Spins game can be retriggered, but don't count on getting it. It rarely comes, but when it does, you'd probably get one retriggering only, getting 15 more free spins, but 10 or 11 of those extra spins would pay absolutely nothing! I have had so many such similar cases of 'extra free spins' that actually did nothing more than just to increase the total number of free spins won! Microgaming's Free Spins games can never be as good as some other games provider's Free Spins. Take my word for it! Symbols wise, the White Diamond pays 4000x, the Red Ruby 2500x, the green Gem 2000x, the blue Gem 1000x, the Yellow Gem 500x, and all the rest from 200x to 100x, all per line bet for 5 of each kind. A low paytable.


I tried playing Reel Gems again, after such a long break since my last play on it, but more like a refresher game play than anything else. I know I cannot win on it, I know what to expect from it, but I need to refresh my memory for writing a review on it. Simple as that. Is there anything that I like about Reel Gems? Nope, nothing. Is there anything that I dislike about Reel Gems? Yep, plenty. But I don't need to elaborate further on those.

Reel Gems is 5 reels and 243 ways to win video slot from Microgaming software. I have tried this slot only once and I think that is enough for me. When I played this game I was 40 euros down on my balance when I got free spins. 15 free spins with x 3 multiplier and I got 27.80 euros in total. My balance was still low. In the next free spins round I retriggered the free spins. But there were not some extraordinary wins. I got 68.72 and to be honest I was expecting more. But my balance improved after this win so I could play more. I did not want to change the game because I saw that it has potential to pay. I was playing with 1 euro bet, so for that reason my balance dropped so fast. The free spins round is triggered very often. At the beginning not so much, but I think that after you play one round, after that it is much easier. During the base game there are 5 of a kind wins very often, but only with the weak symbols but still it was paying 4 x bet.

I really liked this luxury themed slot. The theme is really nice but the payouts are not that good. I lost most of my money doing re spin on the reels trying to catch the symbol that I was missing. And, then I realized that only my balance was going down and there was no sign of the symbol that I needed to complete my winning combination. I do not like this feature because it is very tricky and most of the times I lose a lot of money on it.


I do not think that I will play this slot again just because I do not like the payouts, the slot itself is fine, but I am in for the cash.

Reel Gems is old video slot powered by Microgaming software provider. It has 243 pay ways. I tried this game a long time ago, but my results were not good.

The game offer only free spins feature which is trigger by at least three scatter symbols. During free spins winnings are at x3 multiplier and you can also retrigger free spins. I had a couple of times free games, but the results were not so good. Every time when i triggered them, I had wins around or less than x50 bet size. And i was surprised, because every time when i entered free games, the results were almost the same. I expected bigger winnings since multiplier is at x3. The best payout symbol pays good, but all others pays quite poor.

There is also respin feature during base game and i like it. At the end of each spin you can choose to respin a reel as many times as you wish. To be honest i miss this kind of feature at newer games. This feature could really helps you to trigger free games. When you received two scatters you can respin the reel and with a little of luck you can easily trigger free spins. I tried this a couple of times and every time it worked for me. But there is a price which costs you for each respin. So i prefer to respin the reel which will cost me the least.


I got bored during base game, because I had only small winnings. The base game could pay out much more better winnings. And even if the game offer respin reel feature, it is quite boring. The free spins feature is better, but I expected more from it. I also tried to get the best pay out symbols on the reels, by respining. But the prize for each respin is sometimes very high, so I don't know if this could be profitable. I will rate this game with 5 stars, the payouts should be better.

Reel gems video slot was created by microgaming long time ago, and therefore if you this type of player who like great looking games, i think you can simply miss one, since all old games in most cases looks totally bad and outdated.

Game has 243 ways, and i like all 243 line games to be honest. Here we also have wilds on all reels, but to my surprise wilds here have no payouts, which is a bit strange and i did not understand why mg did not award any payouts for wilds here, specially in 243 lines game. Payouts are also not great here, but from the other side i can't say that this payouts are too low, it is just average and not so bad, can't complain about it. Free spins can be triggered by 3+ scatters and player awarded 15 free spins with x 3 multiplier. Also 5 scatters award 100 x total bet, and this is typical amount for microgaming game. I play this game 4-5 times in different casinos, but most playtime at this game i had in 32red casino, i start play game with 50$ balance at 0.5 bets, and after 30 minutes or so i just get 100$ balance, have couple of feature but unfortunately without wins more than x 100. Also here is this stupid and not interesting feature with a chance to respin any reel for money, and like in other slot review of same feature i said it is useless thing at least in my opinion and i pretty sure not so many players use this one.

Medium variance 243 line game, with stupid respin feature and medium payouts. Also here is no payouts for wilds, and taking note that game looks bad i did not know who will play this game, since microgaming have much more better 243 line games. If only you love everything old, and this is only one reason to choose this game.

Reel Gems is a sleek and luxurious themed 243 ways video slot. It's so much more elegant in graphics than that Progressive video slot Millionaires club III. Although, the bonus there has been really super that I can't argue about that! Gem picks after gems, it crazy good!

The worst I had done on Reel Gems was through 3 coin bets. I tried lining up the Diamond symbols each, first from right to left with a wild on the 4th reel instead of the diamond. When I tried for a re-spin on the 1st reel it costed me $8.03 each, I did it 7 times thinking I should accept my losses and close Reel Gems but....I chose one last re-spin for $8.03 and finally gotten the Diamond for 5 of them! It paid me $120 but personally it nearly costed my wallet injuries of $56.21 had I not spun for the 8th time! I felt crazy just spinning for a large bet like $8.03 per re-spin! My advise to you all is to think really carefully on each re-spin that you make, your wallet/purse will definitely suffer for it!


Hahahaha imao one star from the staff member. Well, I could tell you all that Reel Gems for it's overall features gets 3 stars. The luxury themed graphics and the symbols of gems were really spot on, but I don't think Reel Gems is a really good payer. I find that I have to pay large to win large. It's a game of cat and mouse, I chase my wins at a personal cost from a single re-spin, sometimes it calls for more and I may or may not hit my 5 of a kind combinations.

Free spins scatters were in the dark somewhere so they weren't in any of my spins to triggers Free spins, just some scatters that roam the reels thinking they are better than me! If I wanted it I would have to re-spin the reels to get them! It s*cks! I like the graphics here however I will instead rather go on Naughty Nurse than to play Reel Gems. It's just so costly to get big wins! It's supposed to entertain and pay well for us players, not punch big holes in our pockets! My biggest losses have been $66 because of the Re-spins!

Reel Gems is another of Microgamings 243 ways slot - it is by no means one of their good 243 ways slots and unfortunately I will have more to add in the dislike section of this review rather than the like section!

Okay so what do I like about this slot?? hmmm. Well I like the fact it is 243 ways - which I always forget actually, whenever I play it I just immediately think it is a 25 line slot because its 25p a spin, usually 243 ways slots are at least a minimum of 30p a spin, so I find myself analyzing the reels when I get a win because I am thinking how is that a winning pay-line - takes a few minutes then I realize how! But that is just me being me!

To be honest that is probably the only thing I like about this slot - which is a very weak argument isn't it! I don't think the makers of this slot will be contacting me anytime soon to promote it!


This slot really frustrates me but for some reason I end up playing it now and again - but I get the same results every time. This is I loose! I have never got the free spins - EVER! Which is one of the reasons why I play it, im determined to get the free spins, knowing my luck they will be rubbish anyway. I don't like the wins on the base game, I find they are usually non existent and quite often or not my wins are £1, I spin for £2 to get £1 back - that is always going to be a downhill ride isnt it!

I'm afraid I cannot go into details about the Free Spins feature as I have honestly never had them. My advice to anyone reading this is to stay clear of Reel Gems!
