There is no doubt that Gem Forest is not a regular 3-reel slot as it offers players far more ways to win than any slot with 5, 9 or 10 pay lines and there is more. Not only does the slot pay out for what players manage to amass during the round it also provides extra re-spins for more wins as well as some bonus wild cards to complete other winning combinations. Players are sure to love this very classic slot. Complete with sleek, sharp animations, vibrant colours and visuals that are all finished with true oriental finesse. It is obvious that Gameplay Interactive has been designed with upmost care to give players an immersive and exciting experience. Whilst the slot has 27 ways to win on offer it does charge a fixed bet of 10 coins per spin, therefore the lowest players can bet works out to just 0.05 credits with a minimum stake 0.50 for the round. For players that want more risk they can increase their coin set to 300 credits and a maximum round bet of 3,000 credits.
In the same way other slots do not use standard pay lines, this slot allows players to win prizes in every conceivable direction providing the matching symbols are on adjacent reels. To collect a win players, need to match three, (two can also provide a win) matching symbols over three different reels in any possible position and as long as there is no reel that does not have the symbol you are a winner, prizes are paid from left to right so unfortunately there is no chance of landing double pay outs.
When it comes to the pay table players will see that there are nine different symbols, eight are the base symbols and one special wild. These base symbols are segregated into two groups of four symbols one represents items and the other gems with playing card signs painted on them. The treasure chest is the only symbol that pays out for collecting 1, 2 or 3 and this provides prizes of x2 – x26 of the players line bet.
The other picture symbols pay between x11 – x14 of the players net whilst the card signs offer prizes of x2, x5 and x6 respectively. It does not matter which symbol activates the prize players will delight as they are always given an extra chance to win more due to the bonus cascading reels feature. The feature is active after every winning spin and removes the symbols that created the pay out and players then see new symbols fall onto the vacated positions. If you find that the base symbols are not paying you enough, there is also the wild that could help.
The wild is represented by a superbly executed animated fox and can substitute for all other symbols to create winning combinations. When the fox appears on the reels it can pay out on its own when it doesn’t make any substitutions and has the ability to land anywhere on any reel/s. Landing just one fox rewards players x3 of their line bet, land two or three foxes and the wins increase to between x5 – x100 of the players bet. One of the best things about Gem Forest is that players can play it for free in many online casinos which is a must for beginners as this gives them the chance to understand the game play, so they have more chance of landing the big wins when they play for real.
