With Perfect Gems, Play’n GO repeats a trick they’ve successfully performed a couple of times before
In this case, they borrowed a successful concept, the game mechanism of the hugely popular Megaways slots, and added their unique touch.
While we were a little reluctant, at first, thinking that this video slot would be a failed b-version of the successful Megaways concept, the game proved us wrong big time.
Perfect Gems is a top release with stunning graphics and enormous potential.
We were instantly hooked.
How does the Perfect Gems video slot work?
Anyone who has played Bonanza or Extra Chilli will immediately recognize the setup of Perfect Gems.
There are two sets of reels:
- One set of 6 reels with varying height
- One reel with 4 symbols is placed above the bigger set of reels.
Together, the two sets can create winning combinations. Each symbol on the bigger set of reels directly below the same symbol on the single reel splits into two identical symbols.
This can result in so many more ways to win: up to 21,609 ways.
Winning symbols dissolve and make way for new ones. On the top reel, new symbols are added from right to left. On the large set of reels, symbols drop down.
There is also a multiplier, which is increased by +1 after each winning spin. As soon as a spin does not result in more winning combinations any more, the multiplier is reset to 1.
You can bet with fixed amounts per spin: from $€ 0,10 up to $€ 100.
The variance is high, and the theoretical payout rate is 96.50%.
Symbols and payouts
In terms of symbols, Perfect Gems keeps it very simple. There are gems and card symbols. Hmmm, does that sound familiar?
The blue gems are worth the most and are also the only symbols that reward you from 2 symbols onwards. If you spin 6 of them, then this will award you 25 x the total bet.
The other gems are worth between 2 x and 4 x the total bet for 6-of-a-kind.
Do you spin 6 x a 9, 10, J, Q, K or A? Then you can add between 0.8 x and 1 x the bet per winning combination to your credit.
Free spins bonus: unlimited free spins with increasing multipliers
Three or more scatters activate the free spins bonus. Depending on the number of scatters you manage to activate, you can gather between 9 and 27 free spins.
During the free spins, you can earn several extras:
- +1 multiplier for each winning spin
- +2 free spins for every scatter
There is no maximum multiplier nor a limit to the number of free spins.
The variance of the Perfect Gems free spins bonus is high. Sometimes you only earn 3 x to 5 x your bet, and then again, all of a sudden, you can get 500 x – 1,000 x the stake.
The maximum payout is 5,000 x the total bet.
Our verdict on the Perfect Gems video slot
Play’n GO is not afraid to take an existing concept from other providers and give it its own, enhanced touch. They already did that with Book of Dead (Book of Ra), Crystal Sun (Starburst) and now also with this Perfect Gems (Bonanza) slot.
Perfect Gems is an incredibly cool video slot, with smooth and nicely swift gameplay, free spins with increasing multipliers, and winnings that can reach up to 5,000 x the total bet.
What’s also sweet: the free spins bonus is activated quite frequently. It doesn’t always reward you with sky-high profits, but the high potential of Perfect Gems makes sure it keeps you in suspense and on the edge of your seat.
