Kalamba Games Makes Headlines Yet Again with Goblins and Gemstones Video Slot
December 21, 2020
Malta-based iGaming software developer Kalamba Games recently announced its latest video slot Goblins and Gemstones. The colourful video slot has players searching for grand treasures and collecting gems in a bid to unlock the grand prize. The game offers players a chance to multiply their stake by up to 38,890x their bet.
Goblins and Gemstones come equipped with tons of novel features including Collection Spins. When triggered, players must collect symbols to fill up one of the three Collection Meters. Each meter has a distinct symbol, and as the players collect the symbols, the meter keeps filling up.
Collecting 20 symbols fills up the meter and triggers the Collection Spins round. Rounding up 20 scatter split collection symbols grant an additional five. Similarly, gathering 20 Expand’N Lock Collection grants five Expand’N Lock spins. The way in which the spins work is the Scatter Split feature chooses one symbol at random.
The symbol pays for every combination where it appears. It can also split, thus increasing your chances of generating higher prizes for multiple appearances. When the Paired Reels are triggered, adjacent columns are chosen to show the same symbol arrangement across several columns. These columns appear in pairs while the feature remains active.
During the Expand’N Lock round, a random symbol is chosen, which appears on selected columns, increasing the player’s chances of winning. Notable features also include the HyperBonus, extra spins bonus, and the wild symbols.
Goblins and Gemstones: Bonus Features
For starters, Goblins and Gemstones borrow certain cues from Gringotts Bank. The 5-reel video slot is categorized as highly volatile and offers 1,024 winning combinations. While RTP during the base round is 96.3%, it increases to 97.10% during the HyperBonus round.
The game flaunts 11 regular pay symbols including the six 9-A standard icons while scales, keys, and the three goblins make up the high-paying round. Landing five premium symbols in a round increases the payout from 1.8x to 4.0x the stake.
Three coloured gems appear during the base round. While the Green Gem activates the Scatters Split feature, the Red Gem triggers the Paired Reels feature, and the Blue Gem unlocks the Locked Symbols feature.
Alternatively, if three scatter symbols appear, the players are awarded 2x their current stake and a chance to choose one of the three bonus rounds. The only difference now is that the Paired Reels, Locked Symbol, Scatter Split or feature comes with 7, 8, or 10 free spins respectively. During the HyperBonus round, players can pick one bonus again but this time with a fixed 49.4x multiplier.
The Future for Kalamba Games
Goblins and Gemstones follow closely in the heels of Griffin’s Quest Xmas¸ Kalamba Game’s offering for winter 2020. Players must look for appetizing candy canes, ornaments, and greenery on each grid while the entire theme comes together to create a festive mood.
Collecting three Bonus symbols activates the Wheel Bonus. The rewards include cash prizes, or 8, 10, and 12 free spins! Opting for the free spins activates a multiplier, which offers an additional opportunity for amplifying the winning sum.
