We’ve often wondered what the best element of a slot is. Perhaps it’s fun themes and stories, such as vampires, leprechauns or obscure space pigs with scores of ways to win. Or it’s the range of bonuses a slot has. But recently we’ve been seeing exploding gems pop out all over slots world. So, never one to miss a bandwagon, Playtech showcases its exploding developer skills with its Gem Burst slot.
Exactly What It Says
It may not be an original name but, like a reliable tin of ronseal, it does what it says on the tin. So at glance…it has bursting gems. Which is a good thing (we think) as the exploding gems theme has definitely been gaining traction. If it ain’t broke, as they say.
Just take NetEnt’s king of all exploding gems/stars slot Starburst as a great example, with its Starburst Wilds and chance to win up to £50,000. Though it doesn’t feature a vastly innovative reel case its 10 paylines that Win Both Ways remain fans’ favourites. Starburst benefits from the symbols (gems) exploding as they create winning combinations. Playtech follows suit with its latest slot release and it’s surprisingly fun. And rewarding.
Burst Them Gems
Thankfully, the tried and tested theme of exploding gems hasn’t tired us yet. Five reels, 243 Ways to Win and the Win Cascades feature adds to the explosive action. With so many slots cashing in on this theme and each giving us something unique there are no signs of us getting sick of the gemsplosion revolution anytime soon. Will Gem Burst take the mantle from Starburst? Only time will tell.
