Wizard of Gems is a pretty cool slot about a smooth wizard and is played on five reels with three rows of symbols each.

There are 20 fixed paylines, and you pay a fixed amount per spin.

The betting range is set between $€ 0.20 and $€ 50 per spin.  

The theoretical payout rate of 96.66% is well above par.

Symbols and payouts 

The symbols consist of a mix of jewels, magic books (the wilds), and stars (the scatters). The heart is the highest paying symbol; spinning five hearts on an active payline awards you 25 x the bet. 

The purple moon gets you 10 x the bet for a five-of-a-kind, and the orange flower is good for over 6 x the total bet for a five-of-a-kind. 

Although these are not the most impressive payouts, Wizard of Gems has some tricks up its sleeves. 

Firstly, it has so-called cascading reels, also known as falling symbols. In other words, winning combinations disappear and are replaced by new falling symbols.

Secondly, the multiplier is increased by +1 or even +2 after every winning spin, up to a maximum of 5 x.

This multiplier stays active as long as you keep spinning winning combinations. However, after a losing combination, the multiplier resets to zero.

Free spins bonus 

You win the free spins bonus if three or more scatters appear on the screen. To boost morale, the wizard magically summons extra wilds on the screen at every free spin. This gets you a minimum of 1 wild and up to a maximum of 9 additional wild symbols. Wilds appear on the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th reel only. 

Another fun fact is that you can retrigger free spins. Every three scattered stars amount to another 10 free spins. The maximum total number of spins in the bonus round is 50.  

Variance and RTP of Wizard of Gems 

Wizard of Gems has a low variance, meaning that although you get your money’s worth in playtime, it is challenging to win heaps of money. The game advertises its maximum profit of 625.000, but it’s unclear whether it concerns cents, dollars/euro’s or coins. 

The Return to Player (RTP) of this video slot is a highly rewarding 96.66%.

Our verdict on Wizard of Gems 

Wizard of Gems is a tasty treat. Much like a cheeseburger and coke from McDonald’s, it won’t satisfy your appetite, but it sure is a delicious quick fix for that fast-food craving.

The trick is to play this Play’n GO slot in moderation. 

The game is cheerful, colourful, and easy to master. Furthermore, the bonus rounds drop often, usually awarding you with sizable payouts. If you manage to retrigger the free spins once or twice on top of that, you can grab yourself a decent payment. 

 A neat 3.5 out of 5 stars
