Jewel Quest Riches Slot
Old Skool Studios offers in Jewel Quest Riches a game with a type of layout that’s not very common yet, though fairly easy to find if you try to, a slot machine which has cluster pays and a big game area. With gemstone inspired graphics, it’s not going to tell the most interesting story to its players, but it can be an interesting option once you get into its features.
Jewel Quest Riches offers 5x5 reels and a Cluster Pays system, through which it can deliver wins of up to 200x the stake usually, but with a chance of reaching up to 2,400x once multipliers get to 12x. A bonus jackpot, mystery multipliers, Jewel Quest Bonus with 8 levels, scatters, wilds, plus the aforementioned increasing multipliers, I think you will agree that this slot has a lot to offer. Gameplay wise, it should be noted that it has medium volatility and a 95.19% RTP.
Betting and Prizes
Click repeatedly on the bet button, to increase the value from a minimum of just $0.10, to a maximum of $10 per spin.
Whenever one of the gemstones that appear on the reels will form a cluster, if it has a minimum of 10 symbols in it, a payout of 200x the stake will be paid to the player. If the increasing multipliers are at the highest value, this can be turned into a 2,400x jackpot.
Rewards are properly sized for a slot which has medium volatility, and it’s definitely something to look forward to. On the other hand, I think that they could’ve done better with the Return to Player, which is set to 95.19%.
Jewel Quest Riches Slot Features
The way for a combo to form here, is to have three matching gemstones next to each other. The larger the number of gems in the cluster, the bigger the payout. 10 or more symbols will offer the slot’s top prize.
As a cluster forms, what follows is a cascading reels mechanic, where winning symbols get replaced with new ones. After every replacement of symbols, the multiplier goes up. It can reach 12x through multiple cascading reels.
The Wild Gem is multi-colored, which is how you will recognize it when it shows up. It’s a replacement for any regular symbol, and it can be part of two different clusters, if it’s next to both.
The Lion Coin is the other feature symbol, a scatter that you need on the reels 1, 3 and 5 at the same time. In exchange, the game triggers a Jewel Quest Bonus Game. This is a puzzle feature where you need to match three symbols, across 8 different levels. You can also move up to 12 symbols, but the exact number is randomly decided. Get 4+ matches, to potentially reveal hidden relics. Up to 6 relics may be found. Pick one when the feature ends, to get a mystery multiplier for the wins of the entire feature.
Theme & Design
With a jungle based design, and with ancient temples filled with riches as a setting, Jewel Quest Riches will rely mostly on various gemstones for its symbols, with one exception, the scattered Lion Coins. The others range from multi-colored gems, to diamonds and several others in various colors. It’s a good design, but I wouldn’t say that the gemstones contribute much to the story.
Jewel Quest Riches will offer players a very good collection of features, and even the top rewards are adequate for a medium volatility title. The part that’s less impressive is the RTP.
