You might remember that a few years ago, Bejeweled was all the rage. Nowadays, it has been replaced by social games such as Candy Crush Saga.
What has remained popular is the style of gameplay: cluster style games. Cluster games are very much in this year, and gemstone online slots always do well.
What you have with Old Skool Studios Jewel Quest: Riches, is a combination of both elements. This is a jewel-themed cluster pays slot.
Look and feel
As a cluster pays slot, you can forget about there being any paylines in this game. Instead, players are going to have to win by forming clusters of symbols on the reels of the game.
Set against an Aztec backdrop, the slot (if we dare call it that) is colourful, inventive and bang on the money for the kind of gameplay that players expect to find in their favourite casinos in 2017.
As we’ve said, there are no paylines on the reels of the Jewel Quest: Riches slot.
Instead, players can use betting buttons to alter their bets from a low of just 10p per game, up to a high of no more than £10 per game.
With a top non-progressive jackpot of 200x your total bet up for grabs, this slot has a lot to offer players.
As is the case with almost all cluster pays slots, there is no accurate way of gauging the RTP (return to player) rate.
Players who bag multiple combinations (win after win) can pocket multipliers for those consecutive wins.
It is not impossible for players to bag multipliers worth as much as 12x the normal rate of pay in total in this manner.
Wild symbols are also present in the game, and they take the shape of a multicoloured gemstone. These can replace all other symbols barring golden mask scatters.
Golden mask scatters can appear on the first, third and fifth reels. If you land them on those reels at once, players will get to select one of those masks to bag between 8 and 10 games.
Players must then select a gemstone matching feature, and if they create matches within a specific number of moves, they can advance to the next level, bagging cash prizes as they go in this simple, multiplier heavy bonus feature.
