About Jewel Blast

Jewel Blast is a Quickspin video slot all about the valuable rocks and gemstones whose worth has led nations to colonise and build empires so that they could hoard them all for themselves.

Now, in this game, players have a chance to collect as many as their heart desires, but they must be careful of the Blast Bonus that will blow up and exterminate many valuables if not adequately controlled.

Jewel Blast isn’t a well-known game from Quickspin which is a bit of a shame: it was one of CasinoWizard’s favourite slots for a long time.

Jewel Blast introduction, including RTP and variance

The title is played on a 5×3 board with 25 fixed paylines. Wins are granted for connecting three or more identical symbols in adjacent positions, following one of the active paylines from left to right.

The theoretical payout (RTP) for this slot is 96.57%, which is above the current industry average.

Jewel Blast has a low-medium variance, so while it can muster some substantial jackpots from time to time, the game’s focus is predominantly on providing entertainment, lots of bonus features and prolonged playing time.

Gameplay and Pay Table

Icons are split into higher and lower paying tiers. Lower paying symbols include playing card royals: 10, J, Q, K, and A, which were polished and made to look like they were created out of some valuable metals.

The higher paying icons are a diamond shaped amethyst, an emerald square, a citrine diamond, a ruby orb, and a dull, regular diamond.

An orb stitched together from several valuable gemstones is the regular Wild, while the bonus Wilds are a glowing pink orb with gold wrapping around it from all sides.

Both symbols can substitute for other icons, but the Bonus Wild has an extra special feature.

Jewel Blast bonus feature

When two or more Bonus Wilds land on the playing field, the Blast Bonus is activated. All symbols that are adjacent to the Bonus Wilds are blown away in a blast wave, leaving room for new icons to appear the top of the reels and fill in the blank spaces.

The Bonus Wilds will move one position down until they disappear, but new ones can always appear to take their place. The bonus feature ends once no more Bonus Wilds remain on the playing field.

Jewel Blast slot review

CasinoWizard’s Verdict: 3 out of 5 stars

The sole special feature is excellent. But is it good enough to carry the game by itself? In our opinion, yes, it is.

Although the lower medium variance clearly shows in the bonuses, you can still get some pretty decent results.

Other times, the Blast Bonus would end, and the title would proudly announce how we won a total of €0.00, which skips frustrating and goes straight to unintentionally hilarious.

Although a free spins bonus would have been a nice addition to the gameplay, Jewel Blast still holds its own.

Jewel Blast’s RTP is above the average when compared to other slots. The graphics are a mixed bag, however. Some animations look very odd and choppy, while others are super smooth. This leads us to believe it may have been an issue on our end, but we tested on multiple devices with the same effect.

The low-medium volatility makes it a solid pick for newer gamblers and people who want a low-risk title to fool around in. If you’re going to chase after huge jackpots, this release is not the right one for you.

The largest single win pays 500x your total stake.
