There’s a flurry of games being made to fit perfectly within the mobile and tablet world, and Cool Jewels mobile slot is just that.
With easy playing games like Candy Crush, Angry Birds and Bejewelled grabbing the mobile imagination, is it any wonder that every software provider is creating their own social type casino games?
There is Barcrests’ own Bejewelled slot, of course, then Play’n GO’s Energoonz, IGT Bubble Craze and Playtech’s Sweet Party. Then there is the incredibly detailed Gourmet Ranch Riches from Odobo, that beats them all hands down.
And now, we have the WMS version of a 6×6 reel with exploding gems, cascading reels, and special symbols.
Can it be more than just a game, and become a really great slot machine?
With many of these slot games we mentioned above, they concentrate too much on the game aspect, and not enough on the ‘winning’ aspect.
It’s all well and good attracting the social players who are happy to play to spin, but us gamblers need to play, to spin, to win.
And the Cool Jewels video slot is higher variance than the rest, mostly because it has some interesting multipliers and a wide variety of special symbols.
For each successive win, where the symbols disappear and you get more from above, you can have a chain reaction of wins leading to an impressive 50 times multiplier.
Now don’t get too excited, at the bottom of the run each symbol win will only be worth 0.2 coins or less. But as you climb that multiplier trail, you can get some truly great wins, especially when it feels like you’re not even paying for it.
And then you can get a chain reaction of free spins, and sit back as symbols explode each after the other. The biggest win we got is 140 times our bet, but far more hides in these reels.
It plays beautifully as both an iOS and Android slot, and doesn’t eat your budget all in one go.
There are prettier ‘social’ mobile slots out there. But none that will actually give you the kind of wins you are use to in a slot machine.

All Ways Wins and Cascading Symbols: This simply means that any four adjacent symbols touching diagonally or horizontally will explode into a win. Then, more symbols will cascade from above.
Four Wild Symbols: There are a total of four wild symbols. Each do different functions, and if two land side by side, they create special functions, including giving you 10x multipliers, stay sticky, or explode extra symbols.
The four main wilds bonus features are activated when they are used in a winning combination:
Free Games Bonus: You'll get 'bonus symbols' on the reels. They will need to be destroyed using any of the wild features to get you free spins.
But that's ok, it's why you have those cascading chain reaction of wins.
Cool Jewels mobile slot is more game than machine, yet for those of you looking for something a little different, we think it has everything you need.
Perhaps not quite the wins you'll find in other WMS beasts, such as the Raging Rhino slot, still at least you know Cool Jewels won't trample all over your cash and run away with it.
Multiple wilds, bonus features, generous free spins and multipliers makes this 6x6 reels fun for the non-traditionalist out there, whilst more conservative players can still enjoy a video slot that pays out as mobile slots should.Play Now at Casumo »
