Wizard of Gems is a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot that launched in December 2015, and it appears to be a sequel of the extremely popular Gemix slot machine. What makes the slot stand out from the crowd is its unique blend of simple gameplay and fantastic 3D modelling with the familiar wizard theme and same icons likely to appeal to the fans of one of Play’n Go’s most famous products.
Come to the woods of the old wizard-the Merlin-like guy that scratches his back and has his magic potions book ready for you to check for your winning combinations. The funny and amusing wizard character is restless throughout the game, turning symbols into Wilds with his magic stick and making your game all the more interesting. And even if something is left to the imagination when it comes to extra features and bonuses, the game appears to be quite entertaining and reasonably rewarding.
Play Wizard of Gems
The wizard is a funny looking white-bearded little fellow with huge watchful eyes that stands beside the reels throughout the game and occasionally works his magic with the reels, turning simple icons into Wilds. The gems of different shapes are depicted in vivid colours, while Magic Book acts as Wild and Star is Scatter. The game screen is set on the backdrop of a misty wood with the beautiful lake in the background and autumn leaves in the front, slowly falling down from a tree with gems growing on it. Given the non-intrusive audio effects and simple yet pleasant gameplay, we believe the Play 'n Go slot will find its way to the players' hearts.
How to Play
Maximum 20 paylines are fixed, so all you need to do is select total bet value from $0.20 to $50 before pressing Spin or Autoplay.
The little twist in the game play are cascading reels. Whenever you hit a winning combination the symbols that form it will disappear, allowing other icons to fall in their place.
