Giovanni's Gems slot - Free Play - Game Review
Giovanni’s Gems is one of Betsoft’s most uniquely-designed slots, and you’ll see why, the moment you begin playing.
Now, instead of a conventional game layout, the slot benefits from a 7-row, 7-reel format, and you’ll see the reels filled with a number of different symbols, including Pickaxes, Swords, Money Bags, and the lower-paying symbols are depicted through various gems, including Green, Purple, Blue, and Red Gems.
As with most of Betsoft’s games, the slot features an autoplay feature, a max bet button, and there’s also a few game settings which can be adjusted to suit your personal playing preferences.
The lowest-value symbol - the coal - is actually one of the symbols that contributes towards a bonus, and any time you land this coal symbol next to a winning cluster of symbols, it will turn into a diamond, which then acts as a scatter symbol, helping to make paylines for at least two of the reels on screen.
There’s also a free-spins round, and this is triggered by landing 3, 4, or 5 of the scatter symbols anywhere in view.
Do so, and you’ll win up to 50 free-spins, and while there’s no multiplier present, the fact you can win so many free-spins makes for highly-interesting gameplay.
Pros: Giovanni’s Gems can offer BIG payouts in both the base-game and the free-spins feature.
Cons: If you’re looking for fast-paced action you’ll probably want to choose another slot, as Giovanni's Gems is quite slow to play.
