With colourful gemstones that cascade down from above, this bright Wizard of Gems mobile slot is perfect for when you need a quick win.
You know when you have some of those days where nothing seems to go right? Where you miss the bus by one minute, spill your coffee the moment your boss walks by, or come home and a lightbulb blows?
For those kind of days, you need to call on the Wizard of Gems slot.
It borrows it’s theme from one of Play’n GO’s most popular casino games, the uniquely different Gemix slot machine. That game is a completely different creature, and the only crossover is the wizard and the gems which you’ll find in both.
As the pretty crystal gems fall on your screen and create winning paylines, they explode as if by magic. More symbols then cascade down from above and the multiplier increases by 1x. Get 4 wins in a row and you end up with a 5x multiplier.
It’s not a new concept, (see IGT’s Pixies of the Forest slot to name but one) but it fits in nicely in this Autumnal fantasy land of the Wizard of Gems game.
Especially, we found, when we loaded this up as an iPhone and Android phone slot and the big block colours made it easy to anticipate a win.
Ultimately, this is not a complicated machine. You spin, you try and hit that 5x multiplier with a series of wins. It’s not easy in the base game, to be honest, where we rarely got to 2x on most spin.
Thank-god then for the free spins, which come so often you rarely have an opportunity to miss them.
Unlike in the Gonzo’s Quest slot, where the multiplier increases during the bonus game, Play’n GO have taken a chance and… not done that.
Instead you get anything from 1 to 9 wild symbols appear on each and everyone of your 10 free spins.
It, more or less, guarantees a win on every spin. More importantly, you hit that 2x multiplier easier, which makes the 3x and 5x multiplier within easier reach.
Mostly, you’ll walk away with about 10x to 20x your total bet. Which may not sound like much, but the free spins come every 30 to 40 spins or so. And everyone in a while, when you least expect it, that 5x multiplier will blow you away with a surprise win out of nowhere.
Because whilst mostly this Wizard of Gems slot is here to simply put a smile on your face as you play on a balanced machine, somewhere in the back of your mind you know there’s a huge 12,500 times your bet max win to be found on these sweet, playful, reels.

Wilds: The Book of spells is wild and replaces all other symbols except the scatter star.
Cascading Reels: Every time you win over these 20 paylines, the symbols disappear and you get more tumble down from above, giving you another chance at creating another win.
Each time you get a win the multiplier on that win increases from 1x to 2x, 3x and finally 5x. If you get more than 4 wins in a row, you keep winning with that 5x multiplier.
Not an easy feat, mostly you are lucky to get two or three wins in a row, but the possibility is there.
Scatter and Free Spins: 3 golden star scatters anywhere on screen trigger 10 free spins.
The wizard will then magically add anything from 1 to 9 extra wilds on screen, making it easier to get a 1x win, and increase that multiplier.
Mostly, you'll see 2 to 4 wilds. The most we've seen is 5, but any more is incredibly rare.
That said, we reach the 5x multiplier more often during the free spins, which makes this a very useful feature to trigger.
Add that you can re-trigger the free spins by finding another 3 stars, up to a total of 50 free spins, and you can get a blazing round of wins on a lucky day.
The theme might be a little sweet for some, but you can't deny that the Wizard of Gems mobile slot is a bright, happy, game that instantly puts a smile on your face.
Mostly, you'll find it hard work to get to that 5x multiplier on the base game, but will be rewarded (often) for your patience with free spins that give you the hope of catching a few big wins.
