A Gem of a Game
Who doesn’t like shiny things? Well these shiny bling things will pay out a small fortune if you’re lucky. Play’n Go’s Jewel Box features 15 paylines from rows 1,2 or 3, a gamble option and wins of up to x150 your bet. That’s enough to make this game any girl’s best friend!
Step inside one of the richest jewel boxes in the world! Set against crimson brocaded satin, this game really does mimic a jewelry box: from the outside, it’s kind of pretty to look at, but inside, there’s a mound of glamour and wealth just waiting for you to pick it up! There are 7 base symbols, three of which are jewelry pieces, with the highest value being the diamond encrusted sapphire ring, and the last 4 symbols are diamonds, saphires, rubies and emeralds. The 15 winning paylines are only left to right, but can start on reel 1,2 or 3, which is an interesting twist to a common limitation. Wilds only appear on reel 3, but they are also multipliers and can not only substitute for almost any symbol, but in a winning payline they can increase your winnings by up to x5. Pretty rich pickings for a base game! Plus, there’s also two different gamble features, where you bet your winnings that a face down mystery card is either black or red, for a double or nothing payout, or you guess which suit the mystery card belongs to for quadruple the payout.
The biggest special feature in this game is when three Bonus symbols, represented by a jewelry box, appears on reels 1,3 or 5. This combination triggers the bonus game, where you are presented with three identical jewelry boxes again and have to pick them one by one. Then you are rewarded with whatever bonus lies inside, which can be up to 150x the total bet.
The pretty bling bling, graphic detail and regular big wins really help make up for the lack of story line and more interesting bonus options. Worth a try, even if just to build up your bankroll.
