The game takes place in a mine, and your task is to prospect gems and other goodies to trigger pay-outs.
The 5 reels and 25 paylines of Hot Gems are packed with cool wild symbols and endless free spins for an experience of pure bliss.
Symbols include a bearded miner examining a chunk of gold, a lantern, a prospector’s pick, a coal trolley and numerous different coloured gems.
In Hot Gems, each spin of the reels can have many possible permutations. When you hit a win, all symbols in a matching combo explode! After all wins of that screen have been tallied up, the symbols above them fall down and occupy the empty squares, a la Tetris. The reels continue to collapse in this manner so long as fresh winning combinations are made. Winning Hot Gems logo and Free Spins icons explode, too. This nifty feature is active in the base game, but also during the free spins bonus.
