Deep within a lost civilisation lies a bonanza of gemstones that twinkle and sparkle in the twilights and then explode in a cluster of wins. Yes, Ladies and Gents, this Pragmatic Play Gems Bonanza slot has cluster pays and avalanching wins.
With 8 rows and 8 reels, this Gem Bonanza mobile slot is set on a grid full of colourful and simple Gem symbols, which works for this kind of game. You want simple symbols, so you can clearly see where the wins are happening.
Clusters of 5 or more symbols touching horizontally or vertically will create a win. Usually, you need 8 to 10 symbol wins to get enough to just about cover your bet.
But the point isn’t to get one win, but a chain reaction of wins. With every cluster, those symbols will explode and more will come tumbling down from above, giving you another chance at a win – not unlike the Viking Runecraft mobile slot or you’ll find in our Mega Dragon slot review.
Before any spin, certain spaces behind the grid will be highlighted in different colours. If you get a win over those spaces you can trigger a multitude of bonus features.
You can clear the whole screen or get random blocks of mega symbols ranging from 2×2, 3×3, 4×4, or 5×5. Better yet, this is the only way to get wilds as you’ll either transform one type of symbol into wild or get 5 to 15 extra wild symbols.
You can trigger just one, or with these avalanches of wins, multiple features at once. It gives this casino game a quick momentum that is hard to beat and a real thrill of excitement.
But the avalanche doesn’t just get you random bonus features. The more symbols you explode, the bigger the multipliers. If you explode 116 winning symbols, you’ll get a 4x multiplier on the next spin.
132 winning symbols will get you a 10x multiplier and that’s how you get the 10x multiplier and anywhere close to that 10,000x your bet maximum win.
That meter is your way to the big bucks, but it’s not easy to get there. In fact, for the most part, finding that 4x multiplier is darn near impossible.
But when this Gems Bonanza slot game gets going, it’s hard to keep your eyes off the screen as your heart starts to race and you see those chain reactions of real money wins take over.
And then when nothing happens (because sometimes that how online slots games go) you might get frustrated at the high variance of this game. But we suspect you’ll be back for more to try and catch that rush of wins.

Wild: The emerald encrusted gold medallion is the wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols. It only appears as part of a wild gem and lucky wilds features. The same wild symbol can connect to form multiple winning combinations with different symbols.
Tumble Feature: Every single win will explode and more symbols will tumble down from above. This will continue until no more wins are found on the reels.
Spin Features: After every spin, behind the normal special coloured marking, there are certain areas highlighted. If you get a win in those areas, you'll trigger a special feature:
Gold Fever Progressive Feature: On every spin, the number of winning symbols that exploded during tumble is counted and a meter slowly fills up. When a certain number is reached, you'll then get a multiplier.
With top win of 10,000x your bet, this Gems Bonanza slot on mobile is not for the faint of heart, as you don't even get free spins to ease the wallet.
What you do get is a great chain reaction of wins and features as you load up the meter or catch random bonus features by getting wins over special markers. You win by winning.
Not a complicated concept, but with an 8x8 reels and lots of clusters of gems exploding, you want to keep things a little bit simple to make sure you don't lose momentum as you spin. In short, this is a fantastic cluster pays slot machine.
