Still finding time to innovate within their busy release schedule, Pragmatic Play are set to launch Elemental Gems Megaways on the 10/02/2022. This will be a slot filled with stacked reels, an ever present win multiplier and follow an Asian inspired theme. Elemental Gems Megaways will release with a variable RTP of 96.51% a medium volatility and will offer lucky players a max win of 5,000x. The slot dares to be different from its megaways counterparts and here we will explore the games features and mechanics before providing our full Genius Gambling Review and Rating.
Played across three reels Elemental Gems Megaways features low paying symbols being portrayed here as water, fire, earth and air elements with the higher paying symbols being depicted as fire and an Asian inspired gate. These symbols must create a matching combination across all three reels to award a minimum win with additional symbols increasing the win potential. The player is aided in creating these matching combinations by the slots wild symbol shown here as a golden Yin and Yang, this substitutes all other symbols in game meaning its is therefore easier to create winning lines with these in play. Elemental Gems Megaways is also home to a fourth reel which randomly chooses a win multiplier to attach to any win gained during that spin this can be a 1x with no multiplier being gained but can be as high as a 100x multiplier turning an overwise ok win into a huge hit for the player. Breaking tradition for a megaways release there is no bonus symbol or free spins round to be won during play.
Genius Gambling Review
We truly wish there was more to write about with this release, subverting player expectations by delivering a megaways release set across only three playable reels we were keen to see what Elemental Gems Megaways had to offer however after a few minutes of play it becomes obvious that the slot is simplistic in its design and gameplay. Not necessarily a bad thing what the slot does it does well but will this be an exciting release players will be regularly returning too? Perhaps not. Without a thrilling bonus round on offer, Elemental Gems Megaways feels slightly sub par despite its ability to award a 5,000x max win and having otherwise great stats with an RTP of 96.51% and a medium volatility. The game can start to feel quite monotonous over an extended play session, if you're a fan of the provider or megaways slots in general we would recommend putting a few spins through Elemental Gems Megaways when it is released on the 10/02/2022. Be warned landing three wilds will award a big paying wild line and not a bonus round despite what your gambling intuition will tell you so perhaps don't pursue this as it is obviously rather rare to achieve, because of these reason we award Pragmatic Plays Elemental Gems Megaways our Genius Gambling Rating of 5/10 and look forward to seeing players reactions to this stripped down megaways release in the coming weeks.
