Forge of Gems Slot (Play n Go)

Forge of Gems Slot (Play n Go)Forge of Gems is among the many slots that Play n Go has planned to release in 2022. With this slot, you can expect to work with more interesting features than what the average Play n Go slots offer.

The good graphics attracted me to this gemstone-themed title, and here is my honest review of the game:

Game Set-Up

5x3 reels and 243 ways are what you are going to get initially, but there is a possibility for more (you can get up to 36,288 active ways).

Among the features found inside are free spins, Diamond Wilds, cascades, Ruby scatters, plus the Forge Reel with modifiers.

Betting and Prizes

To place real money bets on Forge of Gems, I needed a minimum of $0.20 per spin, while the MAX that you can put in any spin is $100.

Thanks to its many ways to win, in addition to the multipliers, you can claim a payout of up to 20,000x the stake from just one spin.

This slot is high in volatility but with a fair RTP of 96.20%. The developer has allowed online casinos to lower the RTP, so be sure to confirm this with the casino.

Forge of Gems Slot Features

To form winning combinations, I needed at least 3 symbols of the same kind landing left to right, and on adjacent columns. This way, I was able to trigger Cascading Reels. These are great at allowing extra chances of forming combos.

The cascading reels remove the winning symbols and drop new ones in their place. These cascades will go on until no new combos can be formed.

Then there are the wilds that can be used as substitutes for the regular icons, and it comes in the image of a Diamond.

Then there is the Forge Reel, and this is a horizontal reel, which appears as a modifier symbol. With the cascades, they can drop down to the game area, and this is how they work:

The multiplier will get a 1x boost.

It can transform some symbols into wilds.

Transforms symbols from the same row into extra wilds.

Vertical Splitter can appear to multiply the number of symbols present on its column.

Horizontal Splitter can multiply the number of icons coming from the same row.

With the help of Ruby scatters landing 3 to 5 times on the reels, I was rewarded with free spins (depending on the number of landed scatters, you can get 8 to 20 free spins), along with a prize of 40x the stake paid.

Theme & Design

The usual gemstone theme is what the developer has used on this slot machine. Forge of Gems hasn’t put in the effort to come up with something unique for players.

The reels have the usual low-paying Royals, with several gemstones that are decorated with complicated elements. Overall, the design is great, but don’t expect anything unique inside.

Conclusion

Forge of Gems has some great elements and fun features, but I find the theme boring.

However, if you are looking for huge pay-outs, then Foge of Gems is definitely a slot to check out.
