Get transported to a forgotten realm with Gem Saviour from PG Soft. Go up against an evil enchantress (as she is commonly referred, we’re not ones to judge a cliche) in a mystical land full of fantastical creatures and characters with equally fantastical names.
Presented over an unusual 6 x 6 format with four betways, this medium variance slot gives you a sense of being a little different from the others. However, features-wise this slot is a little on the boring side, with a handful of pretty standard offerings that are only bolstered by the fact that the repins feature is absolutely killer!
This brightly coloured game has a distinctly oriental theme, no surprises there really, as most of them do these days. It does give you that feeling of being on some kind of adventure, maybe some way down to the similarities with some of the themes of the old roleplay games of the nineties. We kinda liked that.
There’s a real story behind this one
Gems of yellow, red, orange, pink, green and blue bring this slot to life, because who doesn’t love a bit of colour, eh? Along with this you'll find Ara (our resident enchantress) and her gaggle of mythical creatures, follow them as they invade villages, pillaging gems from the occupants of made up places like Audora.
Villagers were left imprisoned, amongst whom was a young girl called Misela, who is in fact now a cat. Quite the defeat you might think, but quite handy on the escape side of things, as that’s exactly what she does. Now on a mission to find the holder of a key to the curse, in her quest to get her female form back.
As we go on to the next part of the story, lets not forget this is a slot game, not an episode of Lord of the Rings. But, it must be told that on her perilous journey she encounters a set of wings, enabling her to fly with ease to her saviour and the true power of these gems.
Symbols are bold, but it’s the features that complete the story
High-value symbols include monsters, cats, diamonds, keys, maps and treasure, with low value symbols being depicted by a series of coloured gems in blue, green, orange, pink, red and yellow.
A great selling point of this book, sorry, slot, is that beautiful RTP of 96.82%, well above average for the industry at this present time and guaranteed to bring some sexy wins. Benefit from fairly volatile free spins, that can be retriggered through the respins feature.
As match four slots go, Gem Saviour ain’t half bad. It does pay out thanks to that fantastically high RTP, and those consecutive combinations really put the icing on the cake where the hook to play is concerned.
The main gem, so to speak, is the fact it pulls you into such a fantastical world, and weaves such a compelling and truly gripping story. At times over the past hour it’s felt like this is a book or film review, and to be honest we think there should be a lot more of this in the online slot world.
