Gem Splash: King’s Court is a medieval themed game that is packed full of precious gemstones. The gold-framed reels are set against a view of the king’s castle and the town below it on a foggy night. The high value symbols are all linked to the theme and include the king himself, his horse, his crown, and his ring. The lower value symbols are the royals J, Q, K and A.
How to Play
The slot has 5 reels with 3 rows and 30 fixed paylines. Before you spin the reels, you need to set your total bet per spin using the controls found underneath the reels. When you are happy with your bet just click on the spin button to start the reels. There is also auto play functionality and a turbo mode to speed things up.
You win payouts by landing enough matching symbols from left to right along a payline across consecutive reels starting from the leftmost reel. The slot has no wild symbol but there is a golden shield scatter symbol, and gem drop and gem splash bonus symbols.
Bonus Games and Features
On every spin, the Gem Drop overlay symbols can appear on top of any symbol or above the reels. Once they appear on the reels, they then move down one row with each spin until they fall off the bottom. Each of the Gem Drop symbols also displays a cash value of between 1 and 100 times the total bet for the spin. That value is won if the overlay symbol lands on top of a Gem Splash bonus symbol and triggers the Gem Splash feature.
When at least three of the shield scatter symbols land anywhere on the reels, the free spins begin. At first six spins are awarded, but they can be retriggered an infinite number of times. Better yet, during the free spins, special extra-large versions of the Gem Drop overlay symbols can land. They can appear as single symbols or in 2x2, 3x3 or even 4x4 versions. The extra-large versions will have values ranging from 3 up to 20 times the total bet. In order to make it easier to win bonus payouts, the Gem Splash symbols can land stacked on each reel and the prize on the Gem Drop symbol is awarded once for each Gem Splash symbol that lands underneath it.
On any spin of the reels, the Gem Splash Jackpot feature may begin. A large gemstone is displayed on screen and it may award a cash prize of 10, 15, 20, 30, 50 or 100 times the bet. It may also award one of three progressive jackpots, the Minor, Major and Grand. The Minor and Major jackpots have upper limits to them, while there is no limit to how large the Grand can grow.
In addition to the jackpot prizes won through the bonus feature, the king offers the top payout of 180x when five land along a payline. The horse can payout up to 120x, the crown up to 90x, and the ring up to 60x. All four of the royal symbols can payout up to 30x.
