With beautiful space gems set in a black expanse full of stars, this Space Gem slot game takes inspiration from others and adds it’s own Wazdan twist.
Space Gem is a 5×3 reels slot online with 10 paylines that pay both ways and a wild symbol that expands to cover the whole reel, giving you a free re-spin for every wild reel you catch.
Sounds familiar? That’s probably because you’ve read the Starburst slot review, or the Crystal Sun slot review, or the Kawaii Kitty slot review…
There’s a lot of these types of slot games, so what does Space Gem bring that is new and exciting? The same as every Wazdan game.
Do you like low, medium or high-risk slots? Do you enjoy getting small wins all the time, or big wins once in a while? You can choose the volatility of this Space Gem game, making this hugely appealing to real money players from all walks of life.
So you get more 3 of a kind wins if you choose low variance, but to get 3 expanding wilds on screen, you’ll probably need to play higher variance.
The good, and bad, thing is that the paytable amounts don’t change. The reason it’s bad is that you are taking more risk, for the same amount of money. The reasons it’s good is because whilst you are less likely to hit those three wilds in the low variance version, the chance is still there.
We tried all the different versions, and personally, we would recommend setting it somewhere in the middle. Mostly because unlike Starburst, the paytable is a little richer here, so if you play low variance, you don’t see a lot of action and it gets boring.
By action, we mean those expanding wild re-spins. Don’t forget, this is a very simple machine: you really only have one feature.
If that feature doesn’t hit often, you are basically playing a 5 reel classic slot, and at that point, you might as well play on the Grand Spinn slot by Netent and just go classic all the way.
The good news is that it’s totally up to your taste how you like to play your Starburst copy, which is why it gets a 3 star game review.
If you have no idea, maybe start with Starburst, learn how slot machines work, and come back to Space Gem – this is really for those who have been playing online mobile casinos for a little while.

Pay-Both-Ways: You can get wins from left to right and right to left on this 10 paylines slot machine.
Expanding Wild Respin: The multi-start wild symbol shows up only on reels 2, 3 and 4. It replaces any other symbol to create a winning payline. But more importantly, the wild expands to cover the whole reel and now you get a re-spin of the other reels. You can get up to three re-spins if you catch more expanding wild symbols.
Gamble Feature: After any win, you can choose to play a mini-game where you pick whether the next card on the deck is red or black. If you pick correctly you double your original win, if you pick incorrectly you lose the original win.
There is something intriguing about this Space Gem slot on mobile, especially for fans of Starburst by NetEnt.
You get your wild expanding symbols and re-spins for every wild that shows up on the screen, with 10 paylines to pay both ways.
But what gives this an extra oomph is that you can choose the volatility - from low, to medium to high, much like in other Wazdan slots such as in the Colin the Cat slot machine.
The problem is that the paytable doesn't change, so it just depends on when you want your wins. We found that medium made the best gameplay.
