Forge of Gems contains some dazzling special features
Forge of Gems is a 5×3 slot with an impressive maximum RTP of 96.2% and 243 paylines. The game is not for the faint of heart, however, as it is one of the most volatile games that Play’n GO has released. The bet range is suitably diverse, allowing players to bet anywhere from €0.10 to €100, and the game offers an array of gemstone symbols. The most valuable of these are the special feature symbols. These include diamonds, which also act as the slot game’s wild symbol.
There are a few different special features to keep players interested while playing Forge of Gems. The first of these is the cascade feature, which removes symbols involved in winning combinations and allows additional symbols to replace them. New symbols come from the ‘forge reel’, a special one-row grid that sits on top of the main board. Possible symbols from the forge reel include:
- Vertical wilds
- Horizontal wilds
- Vertical splitters
- Horizontal splitters
- Blank symbols
Each of the symbols has a different effect on the grid, with multipliers boosting player wins and vertical wilds turning all symbols currently on the board into wilds with the exception of scatters.
Forge of Gems also has a ‘gembox’ feature. When three or more red jewel scatters land on the reels, the gembox bonus triggers and immediately awards players with 20x their bet along with between eight and 20 free spins, depending upon the number of scatters on the board. No blank symbols appear on the board during this time, and win multipliers do not reset from free spin to free spin.
Play’n GO’s Forge of Gems is set to be released on 14th April 2022.
