Lightning Gems, by NextGen Gaming, sees players transported to a distant planet, with beautiful gemstones playing a crucial role in your fortunes.
The background Lightning Gems slot game is a beautiful landscape with rocks and mountains set against a stormy sky, on what is presumably another planet. There are many beautiful gemstones which show up on the reels, with each of them glittering and flashing in tune with the music, which does make for a nice effect, but can get slightly disorienting after some time.
The four card suits (clubs, hearts, spades and diamonds) also show up on the reels as the low-value symbols, while there is Wild as well, in the form of a shiny gold symbol. The overall theme of Lightning Gems online slot seems to be of a lot of explosive, quick action.
One of the most interesting things about the Lightning Gems slot game is that the reels pay both ways, from left to right and right to left, turning the 10 paylines effectively into 20. It is a five reel game with three rows.
The symbols will pay out if you land three of them on the reels, either way, since the paylines pay both ways. There are a number of exciting features which make the base game quite interesting as well.
One of these is the Wild Wins Feature, where random wilds can be added to the reels during any spin, with as many as three potentially being added at times. There is also a Wild Nudge Feature, which will literally gently ‘nudge’ the reels if you do not end up with any winning combinations, or if a wild lands outside, to try and change the position of the symbols and arrive at a winning combo.
The scatter symbol in Lightning Gems is a glowing diamond, which can trigger the free spins if you land three of them anywhere on the reels after a spin. You can also win up to 2000x of your stake if you land five of the scatters, which makes it quite an attractive symbol on the reels.
The free spins round will give you 10 free spins, during which time both the Wild Wins and Wild Nudge features will be active, increasing your chances of wins. You will also get a stack of 50 wilds added to the reels at the start of the round, while the scatters can show up as well, giving you the chance of retriggering the round.
Players can bet from 0.15 to 150 credits which get split across the paylines. It is a medium variance online slot, with an RTP of 95.4%.
This is a pretty unique slot in terms of some of the bonuses and features that show up, especially with the Wild Nudge feature, and with the possibility of winning up to 2000x on a single spin, this video slot game will definitely appeal to fans and players of all types of online slot games, as it also has a very interesting and exciting theme.
