For centuries people have been amazed as to how stunning the crown jewels belonging to royalty throughout the world are. The Queen of England's Crown Jewels are so elaborate and beautiful that they're worth millions of pounds, and the value only continues to rise. Barcrest knows people love these jewels and has created the Crown Gems slot, which has the goal of letting you glimpse some ornate (virtual) rocks and possibly win some big cash.
Crown Gems is a 5 reel, 10 payline video slot that pays mid payline and from right to left instead of just the traditional left to right. The game's theme set is simple as it is set on a black backdrop, but manages to let players catch a glimpse of rubies, sapphires, emeralds, and a luscious crown filled to the brim with gold and jewels. These are mixed with card symbols that are found in almost every Barcrest slot and include the 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace symbols.
Playing Crown Gems, the game really does harken back to the days of older video slots. The sounds are something you'd experience at a land casino, and there are a lack of features that make the game tire quickly. There is a posted RTP of 95.1%, which does make things a bit better, as you're likely to see money coming back your way, although this is not a certainty.
I'd say that Crown Gems is a slot that I'll likely never play again, but it does have its place in the casino world. It is the perfect gateway game for players making the transition to online gaming, With that being said, those of you who want to play something more in depth and with a better graphical presentation are likely better off checking out slots from other big name developers.
