IGT like to produce video slots that have a touch of the old and ancient about them, and this Jewel Of The Arts slot machine is good mix of artistic symbols and treasures.
Set on a dark purple background, you get cherry blossoms and falling petals surrounding five reels, as you admire the pretty Japanese style slot symbols.
You get oriental fans, origami cranes, a samurai warrior, an artist of sorts, and A – J symbols on 20 paylines.
And, of course, you have the wild symbol, which substitutes for all of the other symbols except the Fan Dance Bonus symbol. That one will send you on your way to a thrilling free spins round.
However, the highest paying symbol of the game is that of the Jewel Of The Arts slot logo. This pays out a tantalising 1,000x your line bet on a five of a kind win, which might just be possible to get with the help of the locked wilds in the free spins.
With a minimum bet of 0.20 per spin, fans of the Japanese slot style, and smaller betters, will be drawn to the beautiful graphics and animations throughout.
The subtle background music that accompanies you on the reels isn’t as imposing as you’d might find in other more dramatic video slots, like Royal Masquerade for example, but instead immerses you into a soft cheerful mood, which is a nice change.
That said, if you are a big better looking for some big wins then don’t discount this casino slot game. There’s some big wins hiding in the free spins, you will just need to be patient to find them, but once you do, you are guaranteed a win.
Get a Fan Dance Bonus symbol on reel 2, 3 and 4, and you’ll trigger three potentially big hitting free spin rounds.
Now you might be thinking that three free spins doesn’t sound like much, how can you really win big here?
The answer to this lies within the slot symbols themselves, as they now appear stacked within the free spins.
More importantly, you no longer have your boring ordinary wilds. No.
Now on your first spin, reel 2 will be completely wild, then on your second both reel 2 and 3 are wild, leading to some decent guaranteed 3 of a kind wins.
You can guess what’s next right? On your third spin reels 2, 3 and 4 are completely wild, giving you four of a kind wins galore and the possibility for more.
And this is where the highest paying symbol comes into play. If you are lucky enough to get some on reel 1 and/or reel 5 you’ll be bathing in treasures.
On average you can expect between 50x and 150x your bet. With even bigger wins possible, upwards of 500x your bet.
Much like the Red Mansions slot, from the same provider, this machine will entice you in with it’s great looking oriental reels and promises of big wins.
The 92.97% – 96.08% return to player rate is a little unforgiving though, as it could take you a good 200 spins or so in the base game to trigger the free spins.
And, let’s be honest, that’s where you will get the opportunity to see this Jewel Of The Arts slot shine. So novices beware, and remember to budget wisely, as this medium variance slot can be pretty ruthless on your cash at times.
But then, get one good free spins round, and you’ll be hooked. The locked wild reels, and stacked symbols in the free spins will get your heart pumping for more.
All in the hope that you find those higher paying symbols, or the slots logo.
If you want to try pretty much the same game, but with a different theme, then the fantasy slot Diamond Queen is the perfect follow up slot to go with Jewel of the Arts.Play Now at Vera&John »
