Every software provider has to have their own version of Starburst; this Gems Gone Wild mobile slot is exactly that for Red Tiger Gaming.
Look, we are not saying that Starburst holds the copyright to having wild re-spins and gems bursting in a dazzling display on screen.
And so, this Gems Gone Wild slot is Red Tiger Gaming’s version of one of the most popular casino game online; but does it live up to expectations.
The theme isn’t quite as brilliant and dazzling as the originals, though the gems are pretty enough and the animations eye-catching when the wins come.
The improvement, in our opinion, is in the fact that the wins pay whenever you get 3 or more symbol adjacent to each other on a payline.
So you can get a win on reels 2, 3, and 4, for example, much like you can in their Masquerade phone slot.
It livens up the screen far more than getting wins from left to right, or right to left.
Namely by the fact that after any spin, any one symbol gem can be chosen to ‘go wild’.
And that point you’ll get a free re-spin of the reels, and if more of the same symbol appear, they also turn wild and give you further wins with an extra re-spin.
There are quick and satisfying wins to be found if you manage to land enough wilds on screen – a little like in Reel Heist video slot by the same provider.
The problem is that it’s hard to get excited by the spins when you’re not looking for anything specific to happen.
At least with Starburst your eyes were constantly on the lookout for the funny shaped wild.
Here you have to wait to see if you get enough wild symbols to warrant an extra spin, which kills the thrill a little bit.
That said, Gems Gone Wild slot is still a very playable game if you want quick easy wins.

All Wins Pay Adjacent: You have 20 paylines where you can get wins whenever the symbols are adjacent to each other, left to right.
Meaning you get a 3 of a kind win whether the symbols land on reels 1, 2 and 3, or 2, 3 and 4, or reels 3, 4 or 5 - and the same goes for 4 of a kind wins.
Wild Re-spins: At any point, any symbol on screen can turn wild, usually giving you at least 3, sometimes 4 or 5 wilds on screen.
You'll then get another re-spin of the reels.
The Gems Gone Wild slot on mobile isn't a complicated game or even the most interesting of the Red Tiger Games.
But it does have quick, easy wins, that keep you spinning as you randomly turn symbols wild and you get sweet re-spins after re-spins.
You won't win huge, but you might build up your stack enough to walk away happy, much like in Lucky Little Devil slot game.
