Gem Star is an intergalactic-themed slot game produced by Amatic. It’s simple 5-reel slot game design makes it a solid slot game to try. Although there aren’t many bonus rounds or features in this game, the chances of landing a winning spin while traveling in space is relatively high.
Gem Star is a colorful slot game with a beautiful intergalactic landscape behind the transparent reel. When the reel is spun, cosmic music plays in the background to all an element of deep space into the game.
Although Gem Star doesn’t offer many bonus features and rounds, it is super easy for you to land a winning spin in this game. This is mainly because there aren’t many symbols to go around. There’s a standard slot Bar symbol, a 7 symbol, a Star Wild symbol and 5 precious gemstones of various colors like red, yellow, purple, green and blue. There are no low value standard playing card symbols.
To blast off into space, you will need to bet on anywhere from 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 or 100 lines. You can bet anywhere from 1 to 10 credits for a minimum bet of 10 credits and a maximum bet of 1,000 credits per spin.
Gem Star is a profitable game to play. You’ll land the highest payout possible in the game, which is 500x your line bet if you get 5 of the 7 symbols in an active line; however, there’s an even higher chance that you’ll land a winning combination containing precious gemstones. Both the red and yellow gemstones pay out 200x the line bet when 5 of them are present in a line. The lowest winning combination and payout is 3 green symbols, which will only payout 5x the line bet. With 100 lines to bet on, you can easily walk away with a good chunk of change from each spin.
Take a tour of the galaxies with the Free Spin Bonus, which is triggered at any point in the game when 3 Star Wild symbols appear on a reel. You’ll get one free spin for each reel that is taken over by Wild symbols. If you have two reels with stacked Star Wild symbols, you’ll get 2 free spins. Before you play your free spins, you’ll first get paid for any winning combinations you might have made in that spin.
The stacked Star Wild symbols will remain on the reel during the free spins to increase your chances of landing a winning combination or to upgrade a winning spin. If you get another reel with 3 stacked Star Wild symbols, another free spin will be added to your bonus round, and with more Wild symbols, your chances of landing or upgrading a winning spin will only increase. Once all reels contain stacked Star Wild symbols, the bonus round will end.
Much like many other games by Amatic, there’s a gamble feature in Gem Star. This gamble feature is also present in other slot games like Admiral Nelson and the Book of Aztec.
In this feature, you have an opportunity to gamble either all or half of your winnings from each spin.
If you choose to gamble the gemstones you’ve won, you will be taken to another screen to guess either the color or the suit of an unknown card. By correctly guessing the color or the suit, you’ll either double or quadruple your bet. You can end this gamble feature at any time, and collect your winnings from the gamble. You can guess 8 consecutive wins before this gamble feature ends and takes you back to the reel. The gamble feature will also end if you make an incorrect guess.
Don’t overlook this gamble feature. If you guess the suit of the card correctly 8 times in a row, you can potentially multiply the winnings from your initial bet by 2048x.
