Space Gems by Parlay is an online slot designed for those who love everything planetary. It’s a 5 by 3 reel layout slot with 20 pay-lines and is full of features from the off starting with a 1+ multiplier on every spin of the reels with an accumulator each time you get a consecutive win.
You also get expanding Wilds in the base game, a pick-to-win bonus feature and, just to finishing things off, a randomly awarded Jackpot prize. You can pay to play from just 0.20 credits per spin for all active paylines or, if you want to play Space Gems for free then it’s available as an online demo version.
Shoot to the Stars
Take a trip out into the universe where you will find the colourful planets explode with glittering gemstones if they make up a winning combination. The theme is an ever-popular one and Parlay have made the most of this online slot by also including a Rocket Bonus which triggers another astronomical bonus feature.
You also get great music audio but, if it all gets a little too much then you can opt for either the sound of silence or the tinkling effects of glittering stars and swooshing rockets. The random Jackpot in this online slot sits clearly at the bottom center of the reels and accumulates every 5 spins of the reels and can be awarded at any point during play.
Glittering Gems and Golden Wild
In this game, the Wild is a Golden Planet with the status clearly marked and it expands to fill whichever reel it lands on to make up more of those winning combinations. It substitutes for any symbol on the board with the exception of the Bonus Rocket symbol which triggers the Space Gems Bonus Feature.
When it comes to multipliers then Space Gems has the advantage from the start because even in the base game you start off with a 1x multiplier being attached to any winning combinations. If you go on to have consecutive winning lines fall in on the reels then the multiplier increases by 1x incrementally. This can go up to 5x but, as soon as the reels don’t pull in any winning combinations, then the multiplier falls back to 1x.
Find Three Rockets
To trigger the Bonus Feature in this game you need to see 3 Rocket Symbols fall into play anywhere on the reels. Once this happens then the game opens in a new window revealing a dark cavernous background and 5 beautiful gemstones. Pick any 3 and they will reveal your coin credit wins before transferring you back to the base game.
Line wins in this game pay anyway and they start off with as few as 3 symbols. Each win will then attract the multiplier on offer at the time the lucky reels drop in to play and they are also multiplied by the number of coins you are playing per line. The lowest value symbols start off at 0.04 for 3 symbols in a row and the highest paying, which looks remarkably like the planet Earth, pays out at 50 for 5 in a line.
Another Space Trip
As with many of the Parlay online slots, the RTP of 71.90% to 98.10% has a wide range which might put many online gamblers off. The variance too only comes in at medium range so it’s hardly likely to pull in the high rollers out there. The theme though might appeal to many players and, if you are looking for a little more stability when it comes to odds, then Starscape by Microgaming might be worth a look.
