Time to open this pretty box and spin, spin, spin so you can get all those beautiful precious stones to line up and give you all the riches within the Arcane Gems slot.
This gorgeous Arcane Gems slot is not just another pretty jewellery box. In fact, what you have here is lost treasure that has been hauled on board of a ship.
With compasses, coins, and maps, you’re the Captain and you’ve got to figure out how to unlock this box to get to all the treasures within.
And it won’t give them to you easily as you spin beautiful high paying gems, as well as the more standard Spades, Diamonds, Clubs and Hearts. It’s a pretty slot theme that doesn’t re-invent the wheel but has enough detail to draw you in.
This Arcane Gems mobile slot has only 9 paylines, but the symbols pay regardless of where they are on that payline, as long as they are set up consecutively.
What does it mean? It means that you get a 3 of a kind win if the symbols are on a payline anywhere on consecutive reels. So you’d get a 3 of a kind win if the symbols are on reels 2, 3 and 4, for example. Or 3, 4 and 5.
So it may not seem like a lot of paylines, but there are lots of ways to win, especially as when the wins do show up, something a little bit magical (Arcane even?) happens. Those symbols will stay sticky on screen and all the rest will spin for free, allowing you to catch more symbols.
These free re-spins of the reels continue until no more winning symbols are found. So far so Jack Hammer slot. But wait, there’s more…
There are no free spins, no wild symbols, not even a scatter inside this box, which may turn off some real money gamblers who love big games with lots of features, such as the Pink Elephants 2 slot or the Attack on Retro slot game.
What you do get is a multiplier above the reel if you manage to fill a whole reel of the same symbols using those sticky win mechanics. It’s exciting to watch.
The multipliers can range from 2x to 5x, and they are added to the end result of the sticky wins, one by one, to the final amount. We’ve seen it give us some huge wins of over 100x our bet, and with this decent paytable, it’s not out of the range of possibility to get over 5,000x your bet.
We loved it, we thought there are lots of potentials, and we enjoyed a simpler hard-hitting game.
That said, if you are looking for something with more features, you may want to read the Shield of Athena slot review instead.

Adjacent Pay: Whilst this Arcane Gems slot only has 9 paylines, the 3, 4 or 5 of a kind symbol wins will pay when they are adjacent to each other on the payline - so you'll get a 3 of a kind win on a payline if it's on reel 1, 2 and 3, or reels 2, 3 and 4, or reels 3, 4 and 5.
Sticky Wins: Whenever you get 3 or more symbols on a win line, the symbols will lock into place, and you'll get a free re-spin of the rest fo the non-winning symbols. This is called the Arcane Lock Mechanics.
Any new winning symbol will be added to the sticky wins, and you'll keep getting re-spins until no more winning symbols can be found.
Arcane Multipliers: When you fill a column with locked symbols, you'll get a random multiplier of 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x. These will each then be added to the final win on the final respin of the sticky wins.
We suspect that this mobile game will frustrate a whole load of people. Which is why it's hard to give this Arcane Gems slot review 4 stars, because we know it's going to be fairly divisive.
But we had fun playing on a mid to high variance game with all those sticky wild wins, and seeing as it's our casino review site, we get to decide.
The multipliers are not always enough to get you the thrills you seek, but when they do show up on mass, you truly can feel like you can win that 5625x your bet top win.
You have to be a little patient with this latest addition to the Quickspin slots collection, but if you are willing to enjoy some easy simple Gem filled spins, you'll have lots of fun here.
