Little Gem Slot (Pragmatic Play)

Little Gem Slot (Pragmatic Play)For the most part, Little Gem offers a modern design, but you will also find an older theme and a classic vibe.

This is the game we will be talking about today, and it was released by Pragmatic Play:

Game Set-Up

It’s a simple slot with 3x3 reels and just 5 active lines. Among the features inside is an expanding Wild, Free Spins, and the Hold & Spin mechanic among others.

Betting and Prizes

Real money wagers start from an incredibly low amount, and with just $0.05, you will be able to enjoy a spin on the slot. I’m impressed with the MAX betting values, and in fact, it is not common to see Pragmatic Play offering up to $250x the stake for their slots.

With such a betting range, every type of punter is accommodated, including the high rollers.

The top payouts in this slot are average, and you can expect payouts of up to 2,460x the stake, with a medium to high volatility.

The slot offers 2 versions of the RTP, which are 96.70% and 95.65%. It is important that you consider what your casino is offering before committing any real money to the game.

Little Gem Slot Features

The slot is not short of features, and you will get a number of them including the Wild. Obviously, it is the feature that you will use to replace other regular symbols on the slot.

To form a combo, you will need 3 matching symbols, 1 wild (or 1 regular symbol), 2 matchings, and 2 wilds. The major advantage of the symbol is its ability to expand and take over the whole reel.

It can also form its own wins, and these pay as high as what you would get from the top symbol (50x the stake for each covered line). However, the wild cannot be used in the place of a Money symbol.

You may get some Money symbols (these appear in gold or silver variants) on the 2nd reel. These will help you trigger the Hold & Respin feature, but before they do, you need to land them three times and have them cover the entire reel.

When done properly, the triggering Money icons will get locked in their present positions, as the 1st and the 3rd reels go into 4 respins. Some money symbols may land and get locked, and this way, the respins are reset back to 4. Once the feature comes to an end, all Money Symbols will compensate you with the prizes appearing on them.

Theme & Design

Little Gem’s theme is clearly inspired by gemstones, which may not be all that fun.  However, Pragmatic Play has done a good job with the design and quality of the slot, even though it’s not the best-looking slot around.

Its list of symbols includes Sapphire, Emerald, Ruby, Rhodolite, Diamond, and Citrine. Others are Bar logos, Gold Coins, Stars, Silver Coins, an X, as well as some Wild logos.


Overall, Little Gem offers a totally different experience from the typical one that we get from 3-reel slot machines.

I’m impressed by the modern features inside that offer an interesting option to players. If you are looking for a mix of simplicity and creativity, Little Gem is your best bet.
