Gems of Egypt Connecta Ways
Developed by ReelPlay and Boomerang Studios, Gems of Egypt introduces another game mechanic and a rather odd reel set!
After Infinity Reels, and then Radial Reels, here comes Connecta Ways that take a slightly different approach to slot spinning, making this game surely stand out from the others!
The title features an Ancient civilization theme and, when it comes to gameplay, offers up to 961 winning ways, with features that include...
...Expanding reels, Stacked wilds and Free spins.
And What About The Theme?
Boomerang Studios games are mostly created for the Asian market, and since the developers are not the only ones, they need to give their best if they want to design a game that stands out.
And, on the first look, we can say that this one does to some extent.
The game takes place outside of a very nice-looking temple with torches sitting on both sides of the reels, along with a pair of huge cat statues.
Upon loading the game, punters will be greeted with an odd-looking Cleopatra, while a theme-like soundtrack will be heard from behind.
Now, this game boasts a strange set of reels that looks like panpipes, featuring symbols like gems of various colours, scarabs scatters and pictures of Cleopatra.
How Much Can We Bet?
Gems of Egypt Connecta Ways comes with six reels, 5 to 10 rows and offers up to 961 connecting win ways.
You will need to land three to six matching symbols horizontally or diagonally connected on adjacent reels from left to right only to be awarded a prize, however...
...the game may only be suitable for a certain type of punters as it offers a rather small betting range that goes only up to £/€35 per spin.
It's a medium to high volatility game with an RTP of 95.6% and a maximum prize of 4,817x your total stake.
When it comes to symbols, there are 4 stones of various colours on the low side, followed by four polished gems set in gold bands.
Should you land six across the reels, you will win 6x to 10x your bet.
Cleopatra is the Wild, substituting for all regular pay symbols, while a scarab acts as the Scatter that not only can trigger a feature, but also reward you 5x to 100x your bet when three to six land across the reels.
What Special Features Can We Expect?
Since we have mentioned the new game mechanic, it's time to introduce him to the punters.
Thanks to Conecta Ways, all combinations of three or more matching symbols will payout as long as the symbols are touching.
As you will notice the first thing you load the game, each reel has a golden curtain over it with symbols behind.
Because of the Dynamic Reels feature, on each spin, the curtains will slide up or down to change the number of winning ways that can go up to 961 during the base game.
As for the bonus games, this Egypt-themed title comes with only one – Free Spins feature!
Hit three to six scatters and you will get 8 extra spins, which can be indefinitely retriggered.
Plus, during the bonus round, Cleopatra wilds get stacked on reels two to six, providing more potential to score big wins.
Should We Wrap It Up?
If you are someone who likes trying out new things in slot machines, then Boomerang Studios' innovative Dynamic Reels and Connecta Ways (see here) will be more than enough to satisfy your playing needs.
Besides, the medium volatility of this game gives you more frequent winning combinations than you will get from a high-volatility Megaways game, though the maximum prize is much lower, going up to almost 5,000x your stake.
