- Visually this slot is very simple – shiny gemstones set against a bluish backdrop with snowflakes. The gems – diamonds, rubies, emeralds and amethysts – are the high paying symbols, and they four card symbols make up the low value symbols. The Icy Gems game logo pays the most (1.5, 10 or 50x your total stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on an active payline).
- The golden wild substitutes for all other symbols to help form wins, and is the only symbol that cannot be collected in the Symbol Storage feature.
A respin takes place directly after you hit a winning combination, and will continue to do so as long as wins take place successively. During this round you will notice that the symbol or symbols that were instrumental in your wins are stored in the storage feature situated left of the reels. Once you have three symbols stored up, it will then trigger the Superspins round.
A Superspin takes place right after a respin that resulted in the successful storage of three symbols. Based on the type of symbols you have a collected, it will trigger one of three levels of Superspins:
- Silver Stage Superspin – when you’ve stored 3 different kinds of symbols
- Gold Stage Superspin – when you’ve stored 2 different kinds of symbols
- The Win Big Stage Superspin – when you have 3 symbols of the same kind. This stage is aptly called as big wins are guaranteed!
Icy Gems is a straightforward slot made interesting by the clever Superspins feature, where wins should increase with each stage but is definitely guaranteed in the third stage. Gameplay is simple and repetitive but can be explosive should you hit a good run.
