Jewel Falls Slots

Jewels are common additions to many online slots and given that they naturally come in lots of shapes, sizes, and colors, it's easy to see why. They invoke a sense of richness too - ideal when they're attached to prize amounts.

In the Jewel Falls slot game, we are about to find out whether we ought to expect lots of jewels, rocks, or other surprises along the way.

Who is the game developer?

This is another slot game to join many others you'll find at Nucleus Gaming.

Does it come with a demo version?

Yes, it does, so you can sort out the jewels and other symbols in the game and consider whether it would be an affordable one to spin.

We guess you can work out the theme

It's all about jewels, and you can spot several of those on the reels from the moment you arrive.

Design features and appearance

It seems we are in a cave for this one, and you'll see crystals and jewels all over the place. The reels are surrounded by lots of rocks too, and there are sparkles and other things happening to perk up the backdrop.

How to play Jewel Falls slots

You've got five reels in this one, but there are four symbols on each to liven things up a bit more. You won't find any progressive jackpots anywhere though.

Looking at special icons, you'll see a multicolored diamond labeled as the wild symbol. This substitutes for everything apart from the scattered waterfall icon - and we guess that's where the Falls part of the title comes in. The wild can land on all the reels except for the first one.

How many paylines are there in Jewel Falls slots?

The paytable reveals the answer - there are 30 of them - and it also displays where they are arranged. The base game pays in the usual manner from left to right, but once you reach the Jewel Falls feature (more on that shortly), it pays both ways. The lines are fixed, too.

Get ready to place your bets

The fixed lines mean that you'll play at least 30 cents per spin, which gives you a penny slot format to use. There are many other wagers too though, and you can go through those by using the up arrow next to the spin bet amount. The top bet is a lot higher than that, going to $180 per spin.

Don't miss your chance to read the paytable

Do this before you play because there are several elements within the game that you should know more about at this stage. We'll come to those shortly, but we would still suggest that you read the paytable before playing.

Watch out for some Stacked Mystery Symbols

This is a bonus of sorts, although it appears on each spin. There are stacked mystery positions on every reel, and these will all display one random icon prior to each spin. The only random symbols you cannot see in this manner are wilds and scatters. It basically means you can get stacked symbols on any of the reels in each spin, which can help increase the chances of forming winning combinations.

We should also mention the Jewel Falls feature. This is a random occurrence in the game, so you won't always see it. If it triggers, all six letters and numbers (made from rock) will disappear. Remaining symbols cascade to the foot of their reels and new icons appear above them. This carries on until you end up with an entire grid filled with wilds and the four jewels available in the game. The scatter does not turn up during the Jewel Falls feature, and all prizes will be paid throughout before it comes to an end.

Free spins courtesy of finding some scatters

Yes, it's the usual deal in Jewel Falls slots. Three scatters will produce 10 spins, but finding four scatters will bring you 15 spins. You can get 25 free games if you manage to find five scatters instead. All outcomes produce a scatter prize too, and the Jewel Falls feature is more likely to trigger during free games than regular ones. You can also trigger further free games if you manage it.

Do we know the value for the return to player percentage?

No, it doesn't appear inside the rules or in the paytable.

Our rating for Jewel Falls

This is an excellent game - it might well be one of our favorite gem-themed or jewel-themed slots around. We liked the various features throughout, especially the Jewel Falls feature, and we'd certainly play it again. A solid 8.5 out of 10 game, we believe.

What's the game like in terms of prize potential?

The loading screen for Jewel Falls tells us that we could receive up to 1,506x our bet. This is rather low compared to lots of other slots, and that suggests that we might be looking at a low volatility slot game.

Play for entertainment first

The game is enjoyable to play and we believe many people will like it. Make sure you get the chance to see what you make of it by accessing the demo before doing anything else.

Is this an affordable game to play for real?

Jewel Falls does begin with that 30-cent spin bet, so it does qualify for the penny slot title.

You can try this one on a mobile device as well

Let those jewels fall where they may on Android and iOS if you like.
