Gem Drop is a very simple online mobile slot game from Swedish developer play n Go. Boasting only five reels and ten paylines, this game does have a wild symbol but that’s pretty much it, other than the three progressive jackpots of course. This is not the casino slot for you if you are looking for exciting bonus rounds and animated graphics. Gem Drop harks back to the days of original one-armed bandits where the main objective of playing a slot is to win the jackpot. The game does have an Auto Play feature that allows the player to set the betting parameters and let the reels spin for themselves. Gem drop also can be played for either real or free money, which makes it a great game for beginners.
There are no cute backgrounds or in depth graphics to this game. The background to the reels is a plain dark purple, which does offset the sparkly jewels very well. The symbols themselves are predictably gems, but well designed and sharp looking. In fact everything is sparkly and sharp looking. All the information a player needs is at the bottom of the screen with pretty much only three buttons, Spin, Auto Play and Pay Table. The pay table can be found on a different screen to make more space for the graphics.
Gem Drop really isn’t big on added extras. It does have a wild feature whereby in the normal game the reels may change colour whilst spinning. This is randomly awarded and could happen at any time. When the reels change colour during a normal base game spin, they will slow down and stop shortly before the rest of the reels do. You will now get a free respin with the wild reels locked in place, hopefully rewarding the player with bigger winnings.
The second and biggest feature of Gem Drop is the three progressive bonuses. These are triggered by finding three to five gold rings appearing around the normal symbols on the reels. Three gold rings will get you into the first level of the progressive jackpots, the Bronze Wheel of Fortune. This will allow you a shot at the first jackpot called the Tasty Jackpot. Four gold rings will get you into the Silver wheel of fortune and the Luxury Jackpot. Five gold rings will get you the biggest and final prize of the Gold Wheel of Fortune, and the chance to win the Dream Chance Jackpot. Each successive wheel will also give you the opportunity to win the previous wheels jackpot too, or a random cash prize.
As mentioned this is a mobile slot game, so it can be played on a wide range of mobile devices. These include tablets and smart phones and even smart watches as the graphics are not very demanding and lend themselves to a smaller screen. It is supported by both Android and iOs, so most devices will be able to host it. To find it, simply search for it in your app store by name. Once you have located it, download onto your device and off you go.
