Jewel Blast is a colourful and bubbly Quickspin video slot with 3 rows, 5 reels and 25 fixed paylines. The theme is pretty general and has a retro, arcade character. According to the developer, the idea behind the slot's design was simplicity and easy-to-understand structure. On the other side, the absence of the actual theme was compensated with bright colours and dynamic atmosphere.
The symbols are placed inside the bubbles and come in the form of gems. Precious stones are categorised as medium value symbols, followed by icons A, K, Q, J and 10. Instead of a Scatter symbol, Jewel Blast features two different Wild icons, Regular and Bonus.

When the bonus round is triggered, the sequence of symbols forming a winning combination together with the Bonus Wild will be blown away. This bubbles containing the icons will explode in the Blast Wave, making a place for the new set of symbols. The remaining symbols will fall down, thus increasing the chances of forming the winning combinations with the new icons.
How to Play
The total bet starts with $0.25 and is limited to $100. The highest grossing symbols are the Wilds, where a combination of 5 Regular Wilds is worth 500 coins. Bet lines wins are payable from left to right.
Regular Wilds become payable in the combination of 3. They can substitute all other symbols expect for the Blast Bonus Symbols.
Bonus Symbols are similar to Scatter icons by their primary function. When they appear on the reels, the base game will be interrupted and bonus rounds will commence.
Strategy and Tips
With the combination of at least two or more Blast Bonus icons, an additional feature will be activated. This round is called Blast Bonus. During this mode, the nature of reels will change into a cascading-reel variation.
The symbols adjacent to Bonus Wild icon will burst, while the remaining ones will change their positions. Dropping down on the lower level, the icons will increase the odds of winning formations.
The Bonus round will last for as long as the Bonus Wilds are present. Once there are no more of these icons on the reels, the player will be returned to the base game.
Jewel Blast is equally compatible to both desktop and mobile devices. The slot's mobile version can be played on any Android, Mac or Windows platform device.
Due to the visual simplicity of the slot, the graphics and sound effects will not be scarified to the functionality if you launch the game on your phone and tablet.
