Gem Heat Slot Machine

Online slots developers seem to be going through something of a nostalgia trip lately. New online casino games are appearing, all based on classic AWP machines and well-loved UK fruities.

While it's a little older than most, there's no doubt Playtech's Gem Heat video slot is one to file firmly in the 'classic slots' folder. With three rows, five reels, and some quick gameplay, it's just this side of classic to keep the nostalgia junkies happy. But with a free spins feature the newer video slot fans are catered for too. Let's take a closer look.

Play 25 Paylines From Just 0.01 a Line

If you like BAR symbols, Gem Heat has plenty of them. The 'Gem' part of the title is a little deceiving for players, to be honest. What you find most of is the gold bar symbols, double Bars (BAR-BAR) and triple Bars (BAR-BAR-BAR). There are also some very big 7s which can cover at least two positions on a reel.

Line bet coins start from just 0.01, with 25 fixed paylines available to bet across. You can also set the funky Autoplay button to run up to 99 spins. This is particularly effective on the slot's mobile-optimised version. The max bet is 0.40 per line for a 10.00 total stake per spin.

We'll See You At the BAR-BAR

There's a fairly good spread of payouts in Gem Heat. The single BAR icons pay from 5-30x your line bet for 3 to 5 of a kind on a payline. Double BARs (BAR-BAR) pay 50x for 5OAK while the trickier BAR-BAR-BAR icons pay a top 75x for 5OAK. The Bars will burst into flames a la Sizzling Hot Deluxe by NOVOMATIC, when they form a winning payline.

That mainstay of classic slots, the '7' symbol, is present here and it fills two spots on a reel. It's not quite 'stacked' in the classic sense, but decent enough. You'll only win 10-25x for 3OAK but a best payout of 200x for five green 7s is good.

Rarer are the gleaming horseshoes (up to 400x for five-of-a-kind), the dollar signs (50-600x), and the gold bars - real ones this time - which pay a top jackpot of 1000 times your line bet. Overall, we found quite a few 50-60x line bet wins occurring, or about 3x the gambler's total stake betting over 25 lines.

Trigger Free Spins With Locked Wilds

While we were slightly worried that an online slot with 'gem' in the title wouldn't have anything to do with precious stones. Luckily, we were wrong when we saw the Wild symbol appearing.

The gleaming 18-carat diamond is the game's Wild symbol, and it substitutes for all regular symbols other than the Scatters. It's a pretty decent payer, dishing out 10x-line bet for just two on a valid payline, 100x for three, and 1000x for four. A 3000x jackpot is yours if you form an entire payline with Wilds.

Unlike most slots online that are firmly camped in the 'classic' folder, Gem Heat features a bonus game: free spins. The GEM HEAT logo is the Scatter symbol and will pay anywhere it lands. Even two Scatters gets you your line bet back.

Three or more of those, however, will activate a Free Spins feature that comes with an increasing multiplier the more consecutive wins you hit. In addition, punters get a 'Locked Wild' that stays in place for the duration of the round.

Play The Free Gem Heat Slot Today

OK, first the good news: Gem Heat is a no-nonsense slot for fans of classic gambling online. It can be played at a range of real cash stakes, and the regular wins can be pretty medium-variance. However, we managed to get through a good 100-50 spins before even having a sniff of the free spins Scatters.

A better proposition perhaps would be something like Playtech's Funky Fruits Farm. It has a fun classic vibe, lots of fruit symbols, and the potential to win up to 160,000 coins. There's also a generous free spins round with up to 33 free "drops" available. The multipliers can be pretty exciting too. Give both games a try for free today.
