Online Gaming Simplicity with the Bejeweled Slot
With just five reels, 10 lines and no bonus games, the Bejeweled Slot by Cryptologic is an incredibly simple online video slot option ideal for beginners, whether they play it online or via a mobile device.
Although the game play in the Bejeweled slot is unbelievably basic, the graphics and precious stone theme are quite striking. The reels black and set against a rich purple backdrop and the symbols appear to float instead of standing in rigid rows. The theme is, however, relatively minimalistic and isn’t enhanced by any animations or bonus games.
However, there is nothing minimalistic about the jackpots available in the Bejeweled slot with the top payout set at a very impressive 20 000 credits. In order to qualify for this jackpot, Bejeweled slot players have to place the max bet of 10.00 credits on all 10 lines – i.e. 100 coins per spin. Fortunately, inexperienced spinners can still play it safe by wagering a minimum of just 0.01 coins per spin.
These bigger jackpots mean that more experienced players may also want to sit up and take notice of the Bejeweled slot, despite its basic layout and game play.
The Bejeweled Slot Wild Symbol
The only special symbol in the Bejeweled slot is the wild, which takes the form of the shiny Bejeweled slot logo. As such, the Bejeweled slot logo can stand in for any other symbol to complete winning payline combinations.
The Bejeweled slot logo is also the game’s most valuable symbol as landing five of these together on Payline 10 will pay out that highly sought-after 20 000 credit jackpot. A lesser but still impressive 1 000 credit payout of 1000 credits occurs when players land five Bejeweled slot logos on any other active payline.
Cascading Symbols Special Feature
The only real special feature in the Bejeweled slot is its cascading reels. Basically, every time a player lands three or more matching symbols anywhere on the slot, the matching symbols vanish and more symbols fall into those spaces. So the Bejeweled slot cascading reels feature makes it more likely that you’ll land another win. Nevertheless, the Bejeweled slot average RTP remains at a disappointing 94.5%, with a house edge of 5.50%.
Vertical and Horizontal Payouts in both Directions
Uniquely, the symbols in the Bejeweled slot do not have to match in order from left to right in order to pay out; they also pay out in the reverse scenario. This applies, of course, to the horizontal paylines, of which there are five.
But the Bejeweled slot also has five vertical paylines and matching symbols here pay out both from top to bottom and from bottom to top, further increasing your odds of landing a winning combination.
The Secondary Bejeweled Slot Jackpot
Aside from the major 20 000 credit prize mentioned earlier, the Bejeweled slot features another large payout that is a little likelier to happen.
This lesser 8 000 credit payout occurs when player match five symbols on Payline 5 and another five symbols on Paylines 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10.
