Free Play Smokin Hot Gems Slots - No Spam - No Pop-up Ads
Smokin’ Hot Gems is one of Everi’s titles designed to please fans of traditional slot machines. Being an experienced provider with a long history of supplying Vegas land-based casinos clearly makes them an expert where classic fruities are concerned. This particular one is simple in terms of graphics and sounds as well as the gameplay. It will provide no major surprises until you manage to trigger one of the progressive jackpots and as the result get to collect thousands or even hundreds of thousands.
In terms of design, Smokin’ Hot Gems slot is as traditional as can be. The reel area consists of 3 reels and 9 flexible paylines, with an option to bet only on 1, 3, 5 or 7. A spin will result with a number of single, double and/or triple 7s, bells, and single and double BAR icons. Any of these can be replaced by Topaz Wild Jackpot, Ruby Wild Jackpot or yellow Double Wild Jackpot symbols to complete a paying combination. Landing the latter will double or quadruple the prize depending on whether one or two participate in a win.
Players can set coin value between $0.25 and $20, and if playing with all paylines active, they’ll need to invest at least $2.25 per spin. High-rollers will doubtlessly exploit the opportunity to wager as much as $180 per round. Other in-game options include Auto play function offering 10 to 500 automatic spins, Max Bet button, sound control and Turbo mode.
In order to keep things simple, Everi has included a single yet potentially highly lucrative special feature. The game offers 4 progressive jackpots triggered by a specific symbol combination. Their value changes depending on the size of the player’s bet and one can view them just above the reel area. Should 3 Topaz Wild Jackpot icons appear on a payline, you’ll win the 3rd tier progressive. The same number of Ruby Wild Jackpot symbols awards 2nd tier progressive, and 3 of the Double Wild Jackpots deliver the top reward. Getting a mix of the three will pay 4th tier progressive.

According to Everi, Smokin’ Hot Gems slot features an RTP of 95.84%. Base game wins are very modest, the most generous combination being three triple 7’s which awards 60x one’s line bet. Even if two Double Wild Jackpot symbols quadruple the prize, we’re still talking relatively small wins. Since there are no free spins to boost the player’s balance with multiple payouts on a single bet, winning a progressive jackpot is the only way to create substantial profits.
The developer doesn’t specify what their seed value is, but when we were playing the game, the maximum $180 investment could have won us a minimum of $5,000 for scoring a mix of triggering symbols and up to $200,000 if we were lucky enough to claim the 1st tier progressive. This is clearly a high variance game so make sure to keep an eye on your balance at all times.
