About Lightning Gems

Lightning Gems is the newest 3D slot machine game from NextGen Gaming. However, for all its wonderful 3D animation and graphics, the theme and imagery in this slot machine still bares all the marks of simplicity. The over-produced gemstone theme isn’t going to win much credit with the vast majority of casino players, but if you like diamond-themed slots, you could be in luck with this release. Lightning Gems offers a basic 5-reel, 10-line structure, although players are going to have to stake at least 15p per spin (slightly more than they would expect for a slot of this calibre) with wagers rising as high as £150 per spin in total. As much as 2,000 coins can be won in the game, if players can land 5 scatters anywhere on the reels.

Special features

Gold emblems appear as wilds in Lightning Gems. It is these symbols which can deliver 500-coin wins if 5 appear on a line, whilst at the same time they can substitute for any other symbols except scatters.

Scatters – as we’ve already discussed – are the best paying symbols in the Lightning Gems game. They can not only multiply your total bet but also trigger a free spins bonus if 3 appear anywhere on the reels.

Bonus features

Bagging 3 scatters is enough to trigger this slot’s bonus round. Players will start with a total of 10 free spins, and during the spin, 10 wild symbols will be added to each reel of the game, for a total of 50 extra wilds in all. After any free spin, wilds which did not feature in a win may be nudged up and down the reels to give them a chance of popping up in wins. Alongside that, wilds can be randomly added to the reels, giving players yet another chance to pocket wins. The free spins bonus can be retriggered via scatters.


Lightning Gems has some nice features, but you’re going to have to launch the free spins bonus to make the most of them. The hefty minimum stake is a bit harsh, and there aren’t many paylines to win on with this game.
