WMS Gaming has produced an interesting slots game in Cool Jewels. This is a slots game that looks just like an arcade game. The symbols are set into a six reel square grid, and there are none of the usual reels that the player sees in any other slots game. The symbols do behave like they would in any other game, however, and spin into place.
The symbols are the cool jewels. They come in all the colours of the rainbow, red, yellow, turquoise, blue, green and pink. A winning combination consists of four identical colour symbols appearing, arranged either vertically or horizontally on the grid. There is a multiplier symbol as well, and if the winning combination includes that symbol, the player will have his stake multiplied up to ten times.
Side Meters Keep the Player Informed Of Wagers
There are meters set into either side of this grid. The meter on the left gives the player information on how much each of the appearing symbols is worth in terms of a payout. The right hand meter tells the player how many free spins are available. When the player starts spinning he has the opportunity of adding a bet multiplier up to a value of 400, so the player will be in control of the amount of the wager he should place.
Exploding Wild Symbols in This Game
There are three different Exploding Wild symbols that the player will find in Cool Jewels. There is a Shocking Wild, which destroys every symbol diagonally on each side of it. This will result in all the symbols that remain dropping into the vacant spaces left by the destroyed symbols. Potentially this can create some new winning combinations. The Exploding Wild, however, just destroys all the symbols around it in all directions, which again will result in the possibility of new winning combinations being formed. The third exploding Wild is called the Blasting Wild, and this Wild symbol destroys all the other symbols either vertically or horizontally to its own position in the reels. Once again, all the empty spaces will be filled by other symbols dropping into them, and thus opening up the possibility of new winning combinations.
The feature in the game Cool Jewels of the Exploding Wilds creating gaps in the reels, and these spaces being filled by other symbols, is the Cascading Reels feature. This provides many extra chances of a winning combination of symbols being formed, and is an innovation introduced by the creative developer WMS Gaming.
Different Free Spins Bonus
The Cool Jewels logo symbol is the key to the player being able to activate the free spins bonus. To activate this round, however, the player has to destroy at least four of the Cool Jewels symbols on the grid, by using the Wilds. This can be quite a difficult manoeuvre, but the Wilds do appear frequently, and then the action can become very fast paced indeed. If the player does succeed in activating the free spins round with four Cool Jewel symbols, he will be awarded with up to eight free spins. If the free spins round is activated by seven Cool Jewels logos there will be at least twenty free spins awarded.
All these unusual and exciting features in the game Cool Jewels can make for hours of entertainment.
