Jewel Box is a Play N Go powered online slot game that only has one bonus feature but there is a gamble feature that can be played after a win. The online slot features five reels and 15 pay lines that are spread across the five by three row setup.
Up to 75 coins may be bet per spins as five coins are the maximum allowed for each pay line. Coin sizes run from 0.01 to 0.25. The biggest win is the jackpot of 2 500x the bet meaning 12 500 coins can ultimately be won.
Unlike most other online slot games that only pay out for combinations starting from the first reel, Jewel Box allows for winning combinations to begin on the second and third reels. As long as three or four symbols match up on an activated pay line they will pay out their respective worth. Most of the symbols that appear on the reels appear as stacked symbols offering better winning opportunities.
Symbols on the Jewel Box Reels
Jewel Box is a jewel themed slot game set around a wooden jewellery box draped with rich purple cloth. The symbols are large and photorealistic representations of various jewels such as diamonds, emeralds, sapphires, rubies, a string of pearls, a gem encrusted brooch and a ring.
Jewel Box also features scatter symbols that appear as jewellery boxes on reels one, three and five and wild symbols that are identified with multipliers on them. The wilds only appear on the third reel but when they do they may form a winning combination thus multiplying that win by what is displayed on the symbol images. These can be from 2x to 5x.
The Pick a Prize Mini Bonus Game
The Jewel Box pick a prize mini bonus game is a simple affair that requires a jewellery box scatter symbol to land on the first, third and fifth reels on the same spin. When this happens the jewellery box scatter symbols expand and situate themselves in the middle of the screen.
The goal of this mini bonus game is to then pick one of the jewellery boxes so that it can open up and reveal its hidden contents which are various cash prizes. The prizes may amount to amounts such as 150x the total amount bet on the triggering spin.
Playing the Gamble Game Feature
Like most slots played here, Jewel Box comes equipped with a standard online slot gamble game feature. After a win occurs this feature can be activated by clicking on the appropriate button on the control panel below the reels. The amount won that is chosen to be gambled may be doubled or quadrupled if the game is played successfully.
The aim is to predict the colour or suit of a playing card that is to be drawn. Guessing the correct colour doubles the amount and guessing the correct suit quadruples the amount. The entire amount is lost if the guess is wrong. The gamble game feature is limited to five correct guesses in a row or reaching the limit of 2 500 coins.
