Microgaming is probably the most well-known game developer in the gambling world, alongside NetEnt and IGT. Microgaming has done a lot for the industry, and released hundreds of brilliant, beautiful games over the years. They have grown to massive sizes, and have now the opportunity to help smaller game creators reach new heights. This is exactly what they did to Quickfire, a completely unknown team of developers who now have the freedom (and funding) necessary to create unforgettable slot machines. Reel Gems is just one of their many creations, and this is a true beauty of a slot machine. Yes, it is a tad old and may not look anything like the more modern slot machines we have seen in the recent year, but it is still a beauty by all standards. Reel Gems is the perfect slot for every single casino player that appreciates gemstones being used as a theme. Reel Gems has everything a player might need, except maybe a progressive jackpot. Small animations, cool details and a bunch of different gemstones make this a slot machine perfectly suited for both fresh and experienced players.
Paylines that pay
Reel Gems is a bit old, yes, but it still has a lot of modern functions you should applaud if you love slot machines. First of all, is the paylines. In fact, there are no paylines on Reel Gems. Reel Gems, you see, is among the slot machines that offer 243 winning ways instead of the conventional paylines most players are used to. With 243 ways to win, you should have no problems gathering the gorgeous gemstones in big combinations. We do have to say that Quickfire/Microgaming could skip the card symbols next time, but the animated gems are still pretty to look at and they come in a bunch of different colours which make them easily distinguishable from one another. There are no bonus games or progressive jackpots on Reel Gems, simply because it is one of the first slots that Quickfire developed with the support from Microgaming. There is a built-in jackpot of 4000 coins, though, and both the wild symbol and a scatter will help you along the way while you are gathering the gemstones.
Respins, autoplay, multipliers
As mentioned, Reel Gems is a slot machine packed with cool functions, even though it is far from the most modern game out there. The first thing you will notice, are the small buttons beneath each reel. Five buttons, each stating “Respin”. This basically means that you can spin any wheel you like (for a price) an additional time, if you are close to finding a big combination. Reel Gems can also offer you 15 free spins at a time, all of them with tripled payouts. All in all, Quickfire claims that Reel Gems could spit out up to 40 000 coins per spin, which makes a little fortune if you are playing with solid bets.
