Jewel Box is a well-designed and visually appealing Video Slot game from the Play ‘n GO software studio. As its name suggest, it is centred on expensive-looking jewels and baubles, and the entire setting is very sumptuous.
The images on the reels include green, red, blue and clear gems, as well as a bejewelled brooch, a string of pearls and a huge ring. Everything is set against a deep purple velvet background, with the reel casing looking like fine woodwork, to create the impression of the inside and outside of a jewellery box. The background to the reels looks like a dark red cushion, so that the box of trinkets seems to be resting on it.
The sparkling background music also puts one in mind of a lavish lifestyle, and the animations and sound effects that punctuate every win will help players to celebrate and feel special.
Playing Jewel Box
Like system found here in most slots, the action in this game plays out over 5 reels and 15 paylines. The game can be played for free as well as for real money, which is ideal for players who want to relax without any financial stresses, or for those who want to practice and build confidence before they place any bets.
When you are ready to play for real money, you can choose from a betting range of 0.01 to 18.75 so it should suit whatever size of playing budget you have. The Top Jackpot in the base game is 2500x the total stake, and the theoretical RTP is 95.79%. Winning combinations can also start from Reels 2 and 3 as well as Reel 1 with Jewel Box. To take advantage of all this payout potential, you can activate the AutoPlay feature and keep the reels turning by themselves when you are very busy.
Special Features in the Jewel Box Slot
Rather than the usual Wild Symbols, this casino game features 4 different multipliers. They only appear on Reel 3 and may multiply the combination they are part of by 2, 3, 4 or 5 times. There’s also a Scatter Symbol, in the form of an actual jewellery box. It appears on Reels 1, 3 and 5 only, and when it is seen on all 3 of these reels at once the Pick a Prize bonus game is triggered. You’ll get to select one of the boxes on the reels to reveal an instant cash reward.
As a final touch, Jewel Box also offers its winning players the chance to play the Gamble feature. After each successful spin, you can choose to try and increase your takings by clicking on the Gamble button below the reels. This gives you the chance to double your payout by predicting the colour of a randomly drawn playing card, or to quadruple it by correctly naming the card’s suit. You can do this up to 5 times in a row if you’re right, but whenever you are wrong you’ll be forced to forfeit everything. You can choose not to risk it, but activating the Gamble feature is the perfect final flourish of excitement for many players.
