Bejeweled mania swept the world a few years ago. Brothers, sisters, fasters, mothers, and even grandparents were playing Bejeweled by Skillonnet on early smartphones. The popularity of Bejeweled grew so large that one online slot developer Gamesys/Openbet obtained licensing to produce a new themed game “Bejeweled 2”. Here is a guide ready to introduce you to the Bejeweled slot experience.
Anybody who has seen movies like Tron or Drive will appreciate the electro-techno synth tracks, which sound like they have been heavily influenced by the ‘80s. The pumping music is what you will experience first, closely followed by the twinkling array of jewels, diamonds, sapphires, and pearls. There is enough bling on display to outfit a jewellery shop, adorning rings and necklaces.
Bejeweled features an arctic background with the Northern Lights visual. In front of the background is a slot machine interface boasting 15 symbols displayed over five reels and three rows. You will have the option to activate up to 20 paylines. Set line betting from £0.01 to £25, but stick with a lower limit to play for longer. The auto-play function can be set at 10, 20, 30, 40, or 50.
To activate the Bejeweled 2 Bonus round, match three or more scatter symbols. Gems can then be matched vertically or horizontally for cash prizes. Any exploded gems will be replaced by other gems, yielding the possibility of fresh winnings.
For free spins, you only have to land three or more of those symbols anywhere on the reels. You will then have the chance to land on a multiplier to increase your winnings from free spins.
Wheel of Riches will give you a third chance to trigger a bonus round – land three or more bonus symbols in any visible position on the reels to unlock. A disc will spin around before eventually stopping on a multiplier that will increase the value of the best you made at the very start of the session.
888Casino has recently partnered with a UK TV channel called Spike (April 2015). This means that the multichannel online gambling operator is still heavily committed to handing out generous promotions to its new players.
Signing up for a new account for 888Casino will currently entitle you to £88 free with no deposit required. Following up on that initial deal, 888Casino will then serve up a 100% match bonus. The maximum bonus to claim is £200. PayPal casino deposits are accepted from £20 or higher.
Look for the name Bejeweled 2 Slots when attempting to find this game. That is the title given to the slot by developer Gamesys. Use 888Casino’s various browsing options to find what you are looking for.
Paddy Power Casino has a comparable slot called Da Vinci Diamonds. Visually, however, the slot is not as impressive. While free spins can be triggered, there is a distinct lack of bonus rounds.
Starburst looks better than Bejeweled, and can be found at bgo Casino. Unfortunately, though, it has less personality. Starburst does not have bonus round to match Bejeweled.
mFortune has a prehistoric slot game in which the hero is trying to snatch a dazzling diamond to impress a beautiful woman. Quest for Fire compares more favourably to Bejeweled for story, but the game is designed more for mobile devices than desktop devices.
As a reminder, Bejeweled is available at 888Casino.
