REEL NRG GEM MINER SLOT REVIEW
Get ready to enter the depths of the very Earth, looking for rare gems and treasures. It’s a jewels and gems themed slot that will have you mining your soul out for some great wins. Released in January 2020 by developer Reel NRG, Gem Miner is an adorable video slot that will surely have you in front of your screen for a good couple of hours.
Playable on both PC and mobile devices, Gem Miner can be tried out for free right on this page. If you want to add a genuine note of excitement, you can always start betting real money on it in SlotsMate’s Real Money Slots section.
HOW TO PLAY THE GEM MINER SLOT
Gem Miner comes with a setup of 5 reels and 25 paylines, a decent RTP of 95.1% and low to medium volatility, meaning the wins won’t be life-changing but they’re going to be constant enough to keep you going. The betting range starts at a mere $0.20 and ends at $100, the maximum cash jackpot you can win being a decent $750.
When it comes to the symbols, you’ll see some classic playing cards (9, 10, J, Q, K and A) taking their usual spots as the low paying icons. The other symbols are the beautiful shiny gems increasing in value the more rare and valuable they get (just like in real life). You’ll see some beautiful pieces of yellow quartz, green emeralds, blue sapphires, diamonds and red rubies.
GEM MINER SLOT FEATURES
Wild symbol. The Wild symbol is the red emblem with WILD written on it. It serves to substitute for any other symbol on the reels except for the Scatter and is also the highest paying icon in the base game, awarding you with 150x your total stake for 5 in the same spin.
Scatter symbol. The Scatter symbol is the beautiful girl miner and while she can’t be replaced by the Wild, she will trigger the Free Spins game mode for you. She will only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4.
Free Spins feature. As soon as you land three Scatters on their respective reels in one spin, you will trigger the Free Spins feature and you’ll be awarded with 12 free games.
Cascading Reels feature. Gem Miner comes with a cascading reels feature setup. This means that any winning combination will cause the winning symbols to disappear, making place for new ones and offering the possibility for several wins one after each other.
Symbol Stack feature. This feature occurs randomly in the base game and when it happens, a cluster of same kind symbols between 1 to 5 will be randomly placed between rows 1 and 3.
Autoplay feature. You can have your lovely assistant spin the reels for you while you take a break using the Autoplay feature. The game will basically play itself for you while you enjoy a well-deserved break.
All in all, Gem Miner is such a great modern readaptation of an old and overdone theme that you’d think Reel NRG were the first people to have ever developed a jewels and gems themed 3D slot. And that’s thanks to both the smooth graphics and the modern gameplay features (the Free Spins, for example) that shouldn’t be missing from any recent slot. So c’mon, grab your pickaxe and get to mining!
