Star gems was the game of the decade as far as some are concerned in the industry, so Booongo had quite the act to follow. They do, however, seem to have nailed it with Sky Gems 5 Wilds. The name gives a fair bit away really, and it certainly lets you know the selling point of the game – that it has expanding wilds over all five reels.
Presented over a 5x3 setup with a modest 10 fixed paylines, don’t expect to much innovation in the basic presentation of the video slot. But when you start to play, it goes wild, literally. Get three or more matching symbols across the reels for a win and keep an eye out for those exciting and valuable wilds.
Play the game, win the stash
Played from between 0.20 EUR to 100 EUR or Bitcoin equivalent across all your devices, this game has a win-both-ways feature that greatly enhances your probability of taking away a tidy stash of cash. You can score a winning combination from left to right as well as right to left. The maximum win is outstanding, coming in at a whopping 150,000 EUR or Bitcoin equivalent for the top prize of 1500x your stake, potentially on every spin.
The wild comes in the form of a diamond cloverleaf and is the highest paying symbol on the reels, as well as performing the usual wild duties of substituting all other symbols. In addition, it also has a bet multiplier attached that can reach up to 50x.
Get a wild over one of the reels and see it expand across the entire reel, bringing with it an automatic respin for the other reels on the board. Potentially you could score up to four respins triggered by up to five expanding wilds. Impressive.
Those who didn’t think Booongo could beat their classic will be blown away by Sky Gems 5 Wilds. And although the theme is a little tame, it sometimes just comes down to the winning potential for us. Those five expanding wilds can bump up your winnings significantly, and that jackpot is just phenomenal.
