We just got word of a new slot from Swedish provider Yggdrasil. It’s not due for release until February 2018, so no hands on testing is available at this point. Let’s see what we do know about Gem Rocks.
Yggdrasil themselves describe the game as follows…
[table “24” not found /]
The ground shifts and mountains move when this tremendous tribe of gentle gem-hearted giants decide it’s time for you to rack up some wins in our February release Gem Rocks! The true beauty of this diamond in the rough lies in the way the combination of cascading wins, cluster symbols and win-all-ways give you the chance to end every spin with a monstrous. Add to that the fact that consecutive wins add a cluster of up to 4×4 symbols with a guaranteed win on the reels, and you know you have a real gem in your hands!
Drop Down Wins
The game features dropdown wins, meaning that winning symbols disappears from the game when hit, leaving room for new symbols to drop down. New symbols continue to drop down as long as new winning combinations are formed. Drop down wins are played with the same ways and bet as the activating spin.
The Gem Rock Feature
The Gem Rock feature is activated after a player has 2,5 and 9 consecutive drop down wins. This feature awards a single Gem Rock which lands on top of the reels and is made up of identical symbols. The Gem Rock feature guarantees a win. Its size is determined in the following way:
- 2 consecutive wins award: a 2×2 Gem Rock
- 5 consecutive wins award: a 3×3 Gem Rock
- 9 consecutive wins award: a 4×4 Gem Rock
Coin value range: 0.25 – 100€
Number of paylines: 4096
We’re very excited about this game, especially being a mega ways type of slot. After the success of Pink Elephants and their 4096 paylines slot it’s not unlikely that an increased number of paylines might become the new trend. Bigwinboard.com will be back with a proper review as soon as we got a chance for some hands on testing.
