With up to 535,150 coins in a game ready to be won, Giovanni's Gems is a 5-reel, 7-row and cluster-pays slot from Betsoft which plays on the theme of precious stones!
Enchanting colours and audio
The slot has vivid colours, part of which arises from the sapphire, amethyst, citrine and coal lower-paying jewel symbols. At the middle paying stage, you will find the ruby, emerald and pickaxe. At the highest paying level, there is a burning torch and sack of jewels.
The transparent reels reveal a beautiful blend of greens from the vegetation that includes trees on both sides of the reel and an animated Giovanni with a torch in hand to the left of the reels. Enchanting music accompanies the rather enchanting background.
Further augmenting the audio is the sound of additional sound effects born from the unlocking of features or the creation of winning clusters.
Cluster pays, exploding wins, double up, scatters and free spins
The slot uses a rather unconventional method of calculating wins using clusters pays rather than paylines with a group of identical symbols grouped together of 5 or more triggering a win.
The slot also has what it refers to as Exploding Wins where clusters involved in a win explode with their spaces giving way to new symbols that cascade from above for a chance to create a new winning cluster.
This can repeat providing new winning clusters are formed. After a regular win, the game offers a Double Up Feature where you are given the option to play the red/black colour gamble feature for a 50/50 chance at double or nothing.
Another feature available in this slot arrives courtesy of the Giovanni scatter symbol. Three or more symbols appearing on the spaces will trigger a coin prize which increases from 3 coins at the lowest end to 300 coins with 25 or more Giovanni scatter symbols at the high end.
What's more, is that this symbol appearing in quantities of 5 or more will trigger free spins ranging from as little as 7 at the low end to as much 50 with 25 or more Giovanni scatter symbols at the high end.
During Giovanni's Diamonds Feature, coal symbols are turned into diamonds if they land next to a win and you can win as little as 12 coins at the lowest end to as much as 3,000 coins with 25 or more diamond symbols at the high end.

Giovanni's Gems slot can be played with stakes ranging from €0.60 at the most conservative end to €150 at the most aggressive end.
