Beetle Jewels gives us players a nature themed design, the slot machine offering various beetle inspired symbols, though ones that are featuring crystals of different types inside their bodies, so they look like mechanical constructs. The game’s an iSoftBet production, and a slot machine that is quite attractive as a result of the graphics and the features that were selected for it. The game offers free spins, scatters, wilds and it can pay you up to $10,000, given the right combination of symbols.
Betting and Prizes
There are fewer active lines than in most slot machines, just 10 of them, even though the layout has the usual 5x3 reels. You will be required to cover 10 lines each round, there is no reducing that number, but at least you can choose a coin value for each line that you’re comfortable with. You can have line bets between $0.01 and $2, picking one of the values given to you by the game. The full range of your bets will be $0.10 to $20.
One of the Beetle Jewel symbols that will appear on the reels, the one with the red body, will be the one to pay the big jackpot of this slot, offering 5,000 coins to you, so up to $10,000 cash given the right wager.
Beetle Jewels Features
Among the features offered by Beetle Jewels, you will find both wilds and scatters, but they’re both part of the same symbol. The purple colored Beetle Jewel will be the one to act that way, and it will be used either as a wild symbol or as a trigger for free spins. There are prizes that are associated with this symbol as well, reaching a maximum of 2,000 coins.
When this symbol is used as a wild, it acts as any symbol’s replacement, no exceptions. It will be part of their winning combinations if that happens and if it is in the correct position.
As a scatter, it can be just as useful, though in different ways. It could pay you that prize that I mentioned previously, or it could trigger 10 free spins. In both cases, you need at least three symbols of this type to be visible on the reels, in any position. The free spins have their own extra features, where one of the 9 regular symbols will be picked at random. This symbol will gain the capability to expand, as long as there are enough symbols on the other reels to form combinations. The result is that you will have multiple wins awarded during the same free spin.
Theme & Design
A magical forest is the location where these strange Beetle Jewels are living. You see the trees in the background with a break in them that allows you access to the full moon at the top. There are beetles flying around in the background, leaving trails of light behind them. The reels are getting those images of the beetles as well, five of them, but there are also card icons present, shown in different colors. Despite the presence of poker icons, I found the design of Beetle Jewels to be very enjoyable.
Beetle Jewels has enough things to speak for it, in terms of quality of design and features. I think that iSoftBet managed to put out a great slot here.
