Jewel Falls Slots
Gems and jewels… two of the most popular elements to crop up in slot games. Even when the theme isn't specifically about jewels, it's common to see them in one form or another in a few slots. Here, though, they do take center stage, as Jewel Falls comes into play.
If you are curious to know whether it's going to be worth playing this one, we can reveal all about it below. Get ready for some information about Jewel Falls that you'll need to know before you play.
Who created Jewel Falls?
This slot is another fine title to join the existing collection at Nucleus Gaming.
You'll get the chance to try the practice game first
This comes with a sizable balance of demo coins to play with, so you can freely try it and spin the reels to see whether you like it.
The theme does indeed revolve around jewels
And there are several of them in many colors landing on the reels. You'll also discover part of the game revolving around the title, so we'll give you more details on that in a bit.
What's the design like?
It's not in 3D, but it does offer some sparkling icons and a neat background that fits with the game too. Many gems and jewels are dug up in caves and similar places, and that's where we find ourselves as we begin to play.
What should you expect when you begin playing Jewel Falls?
This is a five-reel slot, but rather than having three symbols on each of those, there are four. The game does not present you with any progressive prizes.
The wild is shown as a diamond, sparkling in all manner of colors. It has a label too. This can appear on reels two through five, but not on the first reel. It can replace all other symbols in the game except for the scatter. This also has a label and it depicts a waterfall in the cave.
Paylines to play on in Jewel Falls
There are 30 lines in play, and they've been fixed, meaning they must all be played on each spin. The lines pay from left to right, but if you get into the Jewel Falls bonus feature, they'll pay from right to left as well. We'll explain more about that feature plus other parts of the game in a moment.
Available bets you can choose from
One bet per spin is the way to play - and the bets go from 30 cents to $180 on each spin. That's quite a range, taking in penny slot players wanting to bet one cent per line all the way to the bigger bettors.
Paytable information for Jewel Falls
The game does have a paytable, easily accessed from the control panel beneath the reels. Since there are some aspects of the game that aren't the same as you'll have seen in other slots online, we recommend this ought to be your starting point once you've loaded it.
Bonus features that may appear in Jewel Falls
Nucleus Gaming has taken care to add some neat features to this game. We begin with Stacked Mystery Symbols, as these appear on every spin and on every reel. You'll never know how many you might get in advance though - just spin and watch where the symbols land. Stacked mystery positions are always filled with the same icon on that reel, although depending on where the reel stops, you may see two or more of them, or perhaps none. The wild and scatter icons cannot appear as stacked symbols though.
The other element you'll want to watch for is a random one that can occur in the base game and the free spins. This is the titular Jewel Falls bonus feature. Whenever this happens, all low-paying symbols (all shown as rocks) are removed. The ones above fall into their positions and new symbols then appear. If any of those are rock based, they'll disappear too. The same thing continues to happen until none of the low-paying symbols are on the reels. All prizes are paid throughout the feature before you return to the next spin.
The scatter symbol leads to some free spins
Three, four, or five of the scatter symbols will bring you 10, 15, or 25 free games to play. There are no multipliers here, but you can find more scatters to produce more freebies. You also stand a better chance of unlocking the Jewel Falls bonus - we saw this several times during our go at the free spin round.
RTP information for Jewel Falls
The game doesn't include the return to player percentage anywhere, but we'll update this portion of our slot review if we manage to find it.
What did we think of the Jewel Falls slot game?
This has many great features worth looking out for, making it a fine slot to play. Yes, it does retread a theme that has been around for a while, but it does so in a way that sets it apart from slots that have gone before it. We're ranking it as an 8.5/10 game.
Top prize potential in Jewel Falls
The opening screen tells us the maximum prize is worth 1,506x your wager, but we are unsure whether this is on a single spin or single line. It does seem a low figure, so we guess that means it is on the low side in the volatility stakes.
Demo play allows you to get the hang of how it all works
The game has plenty of appeal in various ways, and we think you'll enjoy it if you load and check out the demo.
