One could guess by the title what this game was inspired by. Diamonds are everybody’s best friend which is why it was a good idea from Leander Games to release Gem Zone Dynamic Ways. It’s a 5 reel slot that uses a Dynamic Ways system to award the player with wins. This means that there are 243-3,125 active paylines in the game. This system is new to the slot industry but should increase the chance of a good payout and that’s the thing that players most anticipate.
The creators of the game focused mainly on making it fun and exciting to play. The center of attention is the way the winning combinations are created. That’s why it doesn’t carry a very special theme and has some amazing features. The game is made to take the player on a colorful adventure to collect gems and diamonds. It describes a trip to space straight to another dimension.
The design as mentioned is nothing special. The background is very colorful and blurry with the attention being on the reels only. One could interpret the design to be space since it’s often imagined to be something colorful and unexplainable. The graphics are good and the soundtrack is cheerful. It makes the player feel like part of a cartoon or entering a candy store. Even the symbols aren’t that versatile and are quite simple. Some of them include the regular royals and different colorful gems.
The design may not be something special, but the game has great gameplay. The player can bet a minimum of 0,20 and a maximum of 200 coins per spin. Thanks to the Dynamic Ways mechanic that lets the reels move and expand the player can win up to 10,000x the stake. The constant changes to the number of playlines make this a high volatility game that could have gone with a higher RTP than 95,80%, but it’s not too bad.
The main focus of this game is the Dynamic Ways feature which has been trademarked by Leander Games. The Dynamic Zone is constantly active; it moves and expands with every spin. Only the symbols within the zone are active, others that are blurred don’t count. This brings a touch of unpredictability to the game and keeps it fun to play.
Then there is the Next Dimension Free Spins feature that is activated when 3 bonus symbols appear on reels 1, 3, and 5. The player then gets 10 free spins and the reels expand to 6 instead of 5. During the round, the number of paylines varies from 15,625 to 117,649, which is a very tempting offer. If the player lands 3 bonus symbols on reels 2, 4, and 6 during the round, they get an additional 10 free spins. Another great thing is landing 6 wild symbols awards the player by multiplying the win by the total bet. It's a bit harder to reach, but certainly not impossible.
The providers released the game, mainly focusing on the new feature they introduced, but the simple design doesn’t make this game any less interesting. It doesn’t have a spectacular theme, but there are fun features that provide the player with great opportunities to win a lot of money. The only downside is the RTP that’s on the low side considering the high volatility. But looking at everything that the game offers, it can be overlooked. Overall, it is a fun game worth giving a try.
