The Gem Machine slot is played on the 5 × 3 board of a steam punk mill dedicated to the manufacture of precious stones. Can you imagine creating your own diamonds? Well, Gem Machine de Bally has been dedicated to this, since 2014 a subsidiary of the developer SG Gaming.
The bets are made by rollers and therefore there are no fixed lines or combinations: the payments are scatter, with colored gem symbols that are paid as they appear. The best paid symbol is the yellow gem (X1,000 your bet or € 150,000 maximum).
In each roller you can invest between € 0.05 and € 30, up to a total of € 150 if you choose the 5 rollers. The betting margins playing with the 5 reels are € 0.25 minimum, up to € 150 for each spin. The highest prize you can get is 250,000 coins, which corresponds to the “grand” jackpot.
Select with how many rollers you want to play
The standard appearance of this game is misleading. Gem Machine includes two most innovative customization options when betting: on the one hand it allows you to choose the type of bet you want to play with, and on the other, which rollers you want to buy.
The result is that in Gem Machine you can bet on each roller separately. Your rewards focus on the rollers you have decided to activate. To choose with how many rollers you play (between 1 and 5) you have to click on the buttons on each roller.
Symbols and special functions
- GEM: instant cash prizes for placing GEM symbols on the rollers.
- FREE SPINS: Get random rounds of 1, 3 or 5 reactivated free spins, by taking 1 FREE SPIN symbol.
- JACKPOT: In Gem Machine there are 5 fixed boats available: “mini”, “minor”, “major”, “mega” and “grand”, each one associated with a symbol. The dynamics are simple: you get a jackpot when you take out its symbol. The boats are always active, but their prizes depend on the amount you set your initial bet.
The best of Gem Machine
With Gem Machine Bally joins the incipient tendency to include selectable betting strategies to the machine, such as those you can see in the latest releases of ELK Studios . But in this case they go one step further, including the option of which rollers to bet on, with the Buy-All-Reel.
We can only tell you that in general terms Gem Machine has an RTP 95-97%, which is not bad at all. If you only bet on 1 reel the RTP goes down, and the more you activate, the higher it is. The data on the volatility of the game have not transcended due to its particular structure.
