Jewel Falls Slots
If we asked you to find a handful of slots based around gems or jewels, we guess you could come up with some in no time. They do make a great theme to use, thanks to the perceived value of various gems. The Jewel Falls slot game has a few twists in store, so it does manage to set itself apart from traditional slots based on this idea. Come with us as we explore the various features on offer in this game, so you can see what you make of it.
Game studio details
Jewel Falls is one of the more recent titles to come from Nucleus Gaming.
Is there a practice game you can load to check it out further?
Yes, and that's the version of the game we tried when we wanted to write this review. It works just as the real one does, so you can learn more about it before deciding whether real bets might be worth using.
You can work out the theme here, right?
It's all about jewels, of course, and so we'll head to a location where you might expect to find plenty of those in play.
Jewel Falls: A sparkling design in action
We have 2D graphics throughout, a cave setting, and lots of sparkling jewels on the reels. There are low-value icons there too, shaped as rocks that bear the usual letters and numbers used for these features.
Let's check out the features and basics in this slot game
Expect a 5 x 4 format for this game, giving you 20 symbols landing on each go. They haven't given you the chance to score any progressive jackpots, so it's all to do with the prizes inside the paytable on this occasion.
We have a wild diamond to look for - easy to spot as it features multiple colors and the word WILD on it too. This lands on all reels apart from the first. It doesn't replace the scattered waterfall, but everything else is fine. The scatter carries a label as well and suggests the Falls part of the title might indeed involve water.
How many paylines does Jewel Falls include?
We found the answer in the paytable - there are 30 fixed lines in this game. The base game uses the traditional pays left to right format, while this switches to pays both ways if you can trigger the Jewel Falls part of the game. Don't worry - more information on that is coming your way in a bit.
Play one bet on each spin
The bets go from a minimum of 30 cents, making the smallest wager per line one cent. There are plenty more possibilities too though, the largest being a whopping $180.
Does the game include a paytable?
Yes, and it appears that the prizes are in cash. This means you should be sure you adjust the bet amount per spin before you view the paytable. If you don't, you'll see the incorrect prize amounts for each winning combination.
What about some bonus features?
The first one to note is the Stacked Mystery Symbols feature. Each spin includes a series of positions on each reel that will display the same symbol. You might get the same symbol on identical reels too. You then spin the reels to see whether you can get any stacked symbols landing in ways that will produce prizes. All symbols apart from the wild and scatter can land in this manner.
The game also includes a bonus that takes the title of the actual game. This randomly occurs in the base game and can also land more often in the free games. When it triggers, you'll know it's happened because all the low-value icons are removed and replaced with waterfalls. These then reveal another symbol. The process continues until the grid shows no more low-value icons. Prizes are paid, if there are any, and the main game begins again. It's a neat way to see whether you can get some good wins from the higher-paying icons.
Free spins and how to trigger them
Find three of the scattered waterfalls to receive 10 games to play. Four or five scatters produce larger quantities of 15 and 25, respectively. You won't get a prize multiplier, but you do stand a chance of triggering further free games by finding three or more scatters once again. And the Jewel Falls bonus element is more likely to trigger whenever you're playing free spins.
What about the RTP value for Jewel Falls?
The game does not add the return to player percentage to its info or paytable, so we cannot give you this percentage at present.
Our rating: Is this a top-scoring game?
We're giving it eight points out of 10, thanks to the solid gameplay and multiple features included throughout. Some are random, for sure, but the game looks good and is one of the better efforts out there involving jewels.
What's the best prize available?
The loading screen showcases some of the highlights of the game to come. It also displays a maximum prize of 1,506x your bet, but does not make it clear whether this is per spin or on each available payline.
Load the practice game first
You can see everything in action if you play the demo for a while, gaining greater understanding of the game as you do so.
Will you change over to the real thing?
