Watch dragons turn into precious gemstones, raging wilds and big wins on the slot from Leander Games. Enter their cave in the bonus round to retrieve valuable treasures and trigger the dragon battle free spins with one of four wild modifiers and win multipliers of up to x20 that can lead to wins in excess of 4,000 times your stake.
Gemstone Dragons is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 20 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols from left to right only. Your encounter with the fiery dragons on desktop, mobile or tablet starts at 0.20 credits and goes up to 100 credits per spin. The game has medium volatility with an RTP of 96.00%. Use Autoplay to set up to 100 consecutive spins without interruptions.
A fantasy dragon kingdom with flowing lava and a tall tower form the backdrop to the translucent game window with frameless reels, while a fire-coloured skyline dominates the background. The four dragons feature prominently on the reels, coming alive and spewing fire when they are part of a winning combo. A heroic soundtrack goes into dramatic crescendos on big wins.
Leander Games went to great length to design intricate pay symbols. The low value symbols are the card suits – diamonds, clubs, spades and hearts – appearing on a round piece of rock. Hit five on a line to win 2x to 3.2x your stake. They are followed by four animated dragons associated with the colour of a gemstone – purple amethyst dragon, golden topaz dragon, blue sapphire dragon and green emerald dragon. The colours will play a significant role in the free spins round. Pays for a single five of a kind range from 7x to 10x your bet.
A dragons eye marked with word itself is the wild symbol, substituting for all regular pay symbols and awarding the same wins as the top symbol. An intricate icon with a golden dragon holding a green gem is the scatter symbol, appearing on reels one, three and five only. The bonus symbol depicts the treasure chamber and appears on reel five only.
It is all about the two bonus features on this slot as the win potential in the base game is at most medium because only the low-value symbols appear stacked. First up is the Treasure Cave bonus game which can trigger in the base game and free spins when you land the special bonus symbol on reel five. This is a pick-and-click round where you are allowed one pick from a number of dragon eggs to reveal your prize.
The Dragon Battle bonus feature is triggered either via the bonus game or by landing scatters on reel one and three as well as a number scatter on reel five marked with 5, 8 or 12 free spins. Any scatter landing on reel one, three and five during the feature will award +1 free spin. You can also win more free spins if you trigger the Treasure Cave bonus game on a free spin.
The free spins are played with a wild modifier and a win multiplier. Both are determined in two pick-me rounds that will appear consecutively once the feature is triggered. First up is a carousel with 12 dragon eggs. Pick until you find three matching dragons. The selected dragon will act as a special wild throughout the bonus round and apply reel modifiers every time it lands in view.
Second is a screen with six golden coins. Pick one to reveal a x2 to x20 win multiplier which will be active for the entire feature. You can score a mega win of 4,000x your bet when you hit a full screen of wilds with the x20 multiplier.
After the release of Bandida, Gemstone Dragons is another well-designed slot from Leander Games with engaging features and big win potential. They even hit regularly to avoid any kind of boredom in a slotting session, that is unless we were superlucky in our test runs and the actual feature frequency is much lower. Well worth a few spin in your next session. However, for now you will find the slot only at casinos from the Betsson Group as they have it as an exclusive for one year.
