Visually appealing

The game has a visually appealing background with the stars shining down onto the transparent reels. The regular symbols consist of a large ruby, citrine, sapphire and emerald at the high end with smaller gemstones cut into the shape of poker suit symbols. The gems seems to have a life about them as they hover in their space rotating side to side ever so slightly as to give off a magical sparkling effect. The music included with this slot can be described as orchestral with several different instruments combined to support the serene theme. Cracks of thunder can be heard at times as well as other effects during features and winning paylines.
