Ready your bags, torches and pickaxe; you’re going to need them for your quest in this exciting slot from BetSoft. Giovanni’s Gems is a visually impressive offering featuring a 7×7 grid and Cascading Clusters. Escort Giovanni the Gem Hunter into a newly-discovered cave filled with glorious uncut gems in the heart of a dark and mysterious forest. Help him gather the treasure by forming clusters of 5+ continuous symbols to be awarded payouts, and trigger the Giovanni’s Diamonds feature to turn mere coal into dazzling diamonds.
When 5+ Giovanni Scatters land on the reels, the Free Spins feature is triggered. You can fill your bag with more than 1,000,000 coins in a single spin!
Once you immerse yourself in the mysterious cave, you will see a dazzling display of raw, uncut gemstones in many colours. We weren’t joking when we said you’ll need a Bag, Torch and Pickaxe for this adventure. You’ll need something to collect gems in, a way to see better in the darkness and something to hack the stones out of the rocks. These symbols are high paying ones, along with Emerald and Ruby. Sapphire, Citrine, Coal and Amethyst are the low-value symbols. You may also see a Diamond in the game, but we’ll tell you about that later. The slot doesn’t include any Wilds, and the Free Spins round is activated by the Giovanni Scatter.
The 7×7 layout with Cascading Clusters means no pay lines. You win a payout by matching a cluster of 5+ matching symbols, excluding Scatters, of which you need to land 3. When a winning cluster is formed, the symbols explode to make rooms for new symbols to appear and, hopefully, form more winning combos. Wagers range from 30-150 coins per spin, depending on your chosen Bet Level. You can also set the coin value between £0.02 and £1, so the minimum possible bet is £0.60 and the biggest is £150.
Giovanni’s Gems makes it easy to turn coal into a diamond. Land coal next to a winning symbol in the base game and it will immediately turn into a Diamond – this is the Giovanni’s Diamonds feature. Diamonds earn coin prizes whenever they appear, allowing players to win up to 1,000x their bet. The more Diamonds, the more you win. During the Free Spins round, diamonds will land directly on the reels.
Free Spins are triggered when 5+ Giovanni Scatters land on the reels. Depending on the number of Scatters you land, you can get 5, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 20, 25, 30, 35 or 50 freebies. The feature can’t be re-triggered as Giovanni doesn’t appear during the freebies, but there will be lots of diamonds and coin prizes.
The Double Up game, which becomes available after every win, gives you the chance to double your winnings by simply guessing the correct colour of a hidden card.
You could win as much as £1,000,000 in Giovanni’s Gems if you’re incredibly lucky. The Cascading Clusters mean you can get multiple wins from a single spin, and the plentiful Diamonds make the Free Spins feature very rewarding. The theoretical RTP if 94.94%.
