Gemix is an online video slot that plays very much like an arcade game. It’s colorful, extremely engaging and very addictive so you’ve been warned that you may lose a chunk of your day by firing this up. The ability to progress through a number of different worlds definitely adds replay value to this particular game from Play ‘n Go.
Gemix is played on 7 x 7 grid and it could best be described as a gem dropping game that might remind you of the popular Candy Crush game. The background is lovely and vibrant and to the left of the grid, there’s a record of gems matched in the current spin. Off to the right is the pattern that you are trying to match.
Before you set off to this wonderful adventure, you must of course, adjust your bets first, and since every slot has its own set of controls, here’s how you can do this: This slot has a Quick Bet panel which will help you set your coins size.
The “Start” button is used to set the reels in motion after the bets have been chosen while the “Autoplay” option will turn the reels automatically without interruption for a chosen number of times
To be fair, this is not the first game to have tried to recreate the popularity of gem games. However, players will find that this just might be the best one of them all.
Gemix does things from a different direction. They take the gameplay of the mobile games, and added ways to win money from this.
Graphically, the game is top-notch. The music is light and amusing. As you start accumulating wins, the music’s intensity goes up a notch, with bass notes and the drums getting more aggressive. When you change worlds, both the background graphics and the music change too.
This game looks and feels very impressive. There are multiple ways to keep you engaged, including that progressive element of moving through different worlds to gather bonuses and acquire new types of wilds. The Crystal Charge comes into play often enough to keep you interested, and will sometimes add some significant wins. Most of all, finishing a pattern feels like an achievement all of its own.
As mentioned, this slot has a number of different levels or worlds. Each of the worlds has its own Wild symbol. There are three worlds that you can travel through, and each of them has three levels. Levels are filled with matching gems on top of the patterns you can see underneath those gems.
These are a series of bonus features that are activated by collecting 20 or more gems in one spin. Four are available which are randomly awarded in the spinning ball to the right of the grid:
Nova Blast = One gem explodes, destroying all adjacent symbols.
Crystal Warp = One random symbol is picked and all matching ones are turned into other symbols.
Light Beam = One symbol blasts a ray of light horizontally and vertically, transforming those symbols into matching ones.
Chain Lightning = A flash of lightning joins two opposing corners, changing all symbols in its path to match those corners.
If you collect 40 or more gems a 3x multiplier is awarded for the current spin.
There are three worlds to travel and three levels in each world. Levels are completed by matching gems on top of the patterns that you can see underneath those gems.
There’s a “World Bonus” amount that increases slightly with each win and you collect this amount when you progress to another world. The faster you manage this, the smaller the bonus will be.
