5 things you never knew about Megaways slots

Top 10 most popular Netent slots

Immersive Roulette review (Evolution Gaming)

What is the ‘Hit-and-Run” casino strategy?

Lightning Roulette

Netent’s Gems of Adoria slot surely offers something different, or does it?

Gems of Adoria looks fabulous and reminds us of Starburst. You’ve got these beautiful gems to start with. But what’s particularly striking is that this slot is 3-dimensional.

Software: Netent

Paylines: 5 reels of 3 symbols, 15 fixed paylines

RTP and variance: 96.13%, Low to medium variance

Maximum win: 500 times the total stake

Betting range: $€0.10 – $€200

Bonus features: Free spins, Striking Wilds, Flipping Symbols

Casino Hipster verdict: Decent


Now you would say that, had Gems of Adoria been released in the ’80s, the visuals would have wowed us.

In the year 2020? Nowadays, you might think that this Netent slot looks a tad old-fashioned.

Anyway, thanks to its 3-dimensional character, the slot offers some very catchy features.

In terms of wins, this slot is a bit more modest

The maximum win is 500x the bet. It’s nice, but of course, not something that will turn your life upside down.

Nevertheless, if you bet the full two hundred, there is a chance you bag 100K.  YES!

Gems of Adoria slot – Gameplay and Features

Gems of Adoria has 5 reels and 3 rows of symbols. There are 15 paylines. There are eight different coloured gems, and the purple one is the most lucrative.

Two features mark this slot: the Striking Wilds and the Flipping Symbols.

The Striking Wilds sound great because you can see 2 up to 9 wilds coming down from “above.” These are, as it were, captured on the reels in the form of a cluster. But in fact, the feature is not different on a 2-dimensional slot. In short, it’s not something that impresses me too much.

The Flipping Symbols, however, are a whole different story. Here you see how useful a 3-dimensional slot can be. A row or a column of symbols can flip 180 degrees so that a non-winning combo can become a winner after all!

How do you get the free spins?

You activate the free spins if you spin at least 3 scatters (recognizable by a glowing jewel in a kind of a rock).

3 scatters yields 10 free spins, 4 scatters 20 and 5 scatters an astounding 50 free spins.

The free spins can be re-triggered.

Free spins bonus round – stacked wilds and multipliers

The free spins themselves are, unfortunately, not that spectacular.

They look the same as in the main game, and there are no extra features or multipliers that make the free spins more exciting.

Payout percentage (RTP)

The RTP of Gems of Adoria is 96.13%. That’s slightly below that of an average online slot. And certainly lower than that of an average Netent slot.

Gems of Adoria slot – the variance (volatility) is low to medium

Currently, Netent has not yet indicated what the variance is, but for now, I expect it to be low to medium.

The free spins have no multipliers or other special features such as stacked wilds or sticky wilds, so it’s virtually impossible to get the extremely high prizes.

In concrete terms, this means that the top prizes are more likely to be around 200x to 400x the bet.

Gems or Adoria slot – pros and cons of this slot

Advantages:

  • The slot has several catchy features, and it just looks stunning.
  • You can play for a long time without it costing you.
  • The slot often pays out (semi) nice wins.

Disadvantages:

  • The free spins are a disappointment. Netent could and should have done more with these by adding another feature or so.
  • You’re not going to win the blistering prizes of say 1,000x or 5,000x the bet.

Gems or Adoria slot – who will like the slot? And who won’t?

Players who prefer relatively simple slots but with a new original feature will undoubtedly find here, what they’re looking for.

Players who love the 80’s will enjoy this slot. And also players who don’t want to take too much risk.

The slot does not have a lot to offer, though. It’s a bit monotonous, and the prizes are far from spectacular.
