Free Giant Gems Slot Machine - Instant Play Game
Giant Gems is a NextGen online slot which can be played on desktop computers and mobile devices through browser apps. Themed on glistening jewels, Giant Gems explores the theme of wealth, precious stones, luxury and glamour. As one of NextGen’s older products, Giant Gems does not flaunt as impressive graphics as Lightning Gems, for example, but the visuals are crisp and attractive, which is usually enough to get players interested.
A simple design and plenty of features are the main advantages of Giant Gems, which is played across 10 fixed paying lines. The reel set contains 5 columns and 3 rows set against a dark blue background with bright light flashing. The symbols can be divided into playing cards and gems. Low values are depicted with the usual playing card icons - 10, J, Q, K and A.
Higher values are assigned to rubies, emeralds, amethyst gemstones and sapphires. The ten paying lines are formed with three, four or five matching symbols in adjacent reels anywhere on the reels. There is an Autoplay feature which can run up to 100 automatic spins, but no Gamble option. Giant Gems slot also dispenses with Wilds symbols and Scatters. Instead, it includes optional extra features such as the Giant Gems and Fortune Spins side bet.
Alongside the regular Spin button, there is the Fortune Spins button. By clicking this button, the player activates a side bet and pays extra to add Giant Gems icons onto the reels (five different coloured diamonds). Not only do the Giant Gems provide multiplied payouts, but they also replace low-paying symbols. When they appear they cover 3x3 squares on the reels.
The bigger the bet, the greater the reward. For example, if you choose to bet four coins, 10 and J symbols will be removed and purple and green diamonds added. If you wager eight coins, 10, J, Q and K will be removed and purple, green, blue and red diamonds added.
The most valuable gem is the light blue diamond. It pays 500x the bet and includes a 9x side bet multiplier. Should you regret your decision to experiment with the side bet, you can always click no Cancel Fortune Spins and go back to standard wagers. The problem is the game is likely to become monotonous and dry should base game continue for a longer period of time without any extra features.

To do that, you’ll need a fairly large budget. Giant Gems has an RTP that varies between 93.75% and 96.12%.
