There’s a thrilling fantasy world to explore in the Lightning Gems slot by NextGen Gaming, and if you accept the invitation to visit its exciting realm, you could walk away with wins of up to two thousand times your bet! The slot game fuses modern and traditional gameplay to give you nudges, symbol transformations, wild substitutions, free spins, and a Wild Wins Feature. To add even more excitement to the proceedings, NextGen Gaming has designed the Free Games Bonus so that extra wild symbols are added to the reels with every spin, meaning that you get a total of fifty additional wild symbols for maximum winning opportunities.
There are two specific themes used in the slot game – lightning (weather) and gemstones. The logo sits at the top of the screen surrounded by a flash of lightning against an ominous grey and dark blue skies. As you spin the reels, thunderclaps and a howling wind are accompanied by an ethereal orchestral soundtrack. The reel set is transparent apart from the symbols themselves, which allows you to see more of the impressive background behind it. To the left, there are strangely shaped rocks and a mysterious trail of fog. In the centre of the screen, there’s a grassy field bathed in sunlight, and on the right-hand side, a vast mountain range sits underneath the storm clouds with a light covering of snow.
Directly in front of you, the five-by-three reel positions show a variety of symbols levitating in midair. Thanks to the excellent animations, each of the symbols used in the Lightning Gems mobile slot moves from side-to-side, shimmers or rotates magically. There are the four playing card suits, a gold amulet, a crystal, and four jewels (N.B., emeralds, sapphires, topazes, and rubies).
In Lightning Gems slot, the wild symbol is depicted as a glistening gold amulet, which can substitute for all symbols except scatters to help create and enhance wins. The wild can come stacked on the reels.
The strange crystal rotating inside a circular void is the scatter symbol in the slot game. It awards generous prizes of up to two thousand times your bet whenever it lands in three or more reel positions on the same spin.
You can trigger the Free Spins Bonus in the Lightning Gems slot game by landing three or more Amulet scatters across the reels. As well as having the chance to re-trigger the bonus with another three or more scatter symbols, you can win prizes more frequently thanks to the ten wilds that are added to the reels at the start of each spin. The Wild Wins Feature can also randomly place extra wild symbols on the reels in both the main game and the Free Spins Bonus. The game also contains a Wild Nudge Feature that can nudge wilds that have landed just out of view back onto the reel set if they can help to make a winning combination.
