Jewel Box is an online slot game created by Play N Go. It uses a theme based around a jewel box loaded with precious stones, and, although the graphics of the game are fairly good, with jewel designs that all but leap from the screen, it should be said that the game does not live up to the standards of more creative modern games. There is very little in the way of special effects, special features, or interesting characters of any kind.
What the game does focus on, however, is a fast, streamlined slot game experience, giving players a tight game play experience that is easily understood. In terms of game play, Jewel Box uses a fairly standard five reel, fifteen play line system. It should be noted, however, that the player is given full control of the betting lines, resulting in a strategic experience that can result in major wins that were otherwise impossible. Jewel Box can be played on desktop computer, mobile phone and tablet.
Precious Stone Symbol Designs
The already mentioned precious jewel designs in Jewel Box is straightforward and easy to understand, which is one of the game’s biggest strengths in terms of game play design. If a jewel looks more valuable then another, it is, which helps alleviate any confusion about which payouts are occurring, and for what reason.
The most valuable symbol in the slot game is the diamond ring with the blue stone, which will trigger a huge payout if being matched with itself the maximum of five times, and a moderate amount if matching the minimum of three times. Next in terms of value is the ring with the purple stone, followed by the pearl necklace.
Next are the solitary stones, not attached to any pieces of jewellery. They are, in order of value, the diamond, the red stone, the blue stone, and the green stone. In order to really rack up the wins in Jewel Box, however, the player needs to keep their eyes open for the bonuses.
Bonuses and Jackpots
The most interesting bonus feature in Jewel Box is the random multipliers. These can be seen floating around the reels at all times, and include a two, three, four, and five. If a multiplier appears in a winning sequence, the payout amount will instantly be multiplied by the number shown, which can, of course, result in sudden and massive payout bonuses.
The other bonus to look out for in Jewel Box is the box itself, easily recognisable as a fancy wooden box. If the wooden boxes match in a sequence, the player will be given the opportunity to select one. Each box will have a bonus of some value, but only one will grant an instant one hundred and fifty times the initial bet. It is, therefore, always beneficial to have the maximum bet amount selected if the three wooden box bonus is landed. This is a rare occurrence, however, and it is always recommended that the player raise and lower the bet in the wisest possible fashion.
