The slot has gathered all the usual guests to be found at any fruit party: cherries, lemons, oranges, grapes melons and plums traditionally accompanied by their all-time companions – red sevens and golden bells. However, the game does live up to its name featuring a shiny diamond as the crest jewel of all the action: make sure not to miss its triumphant appearance right in the middle of the reels!

As with most this game provider slots, placing your bet in Sparkling Gems is merely a matter of a few clicks on the “+” and “-” buttons at the very bottom of the game screen. The slot has a fixed number of 10 win lines, so any amount you select will automatically get multiplied by ten. The resulting figure will constitute your total bet per round. Before placing a bet you might want to know exactly how much you can possibly win. For that, simply open the pay table and see how figures change depending on your current bet. Once you find a reasonable amount you’re ready to spend on each spin, hit “Start” and see what the very first spin brings you – it may well be huge luck. Alternatively, enable the “Autostart” feature, sit back and watch the reels making spin after spin all by themselves.
As with any 5-reeled slot, best payouts in Sparkling Gems are awarded for combinations featuring 5 matching symbols arranged consecutively on one or more win lines. To place yourself in a winning position, however, it is enough to land 4 in a row – this concerns each and every symbol on the reels. Moreover, melons and grapes – for some reason, these fruits generally tend to be a bit more expensive than their fellows – will give your bankroll a little boost already for a 3-of-a-kind combination. Fruits never come alone though: golden bells and red sevens are known to be their usual companions. On the reels of Sparkling Gems, the value of these symbols is way above average, to say the least.
The slot owes its name to a shiny diamond, the greatest symbol of them all. Not only will it award you a huge jackpot prize should you land five pieces in a row, but it will also substitute for any other symbols in the game, acting as a wild. But that’s not all – this shiny symbol triggers the Diamond Glow function: when it lands on the central position of the middle reel, all other wilds in view expand both upwards and downwards, thus giving you extra chances to win. Good luck on the reels!
