Gameplay

The game takes us on a space trip where, instead of colliding with meteoroids or asteroids, we will try to collect beautifully-shaped, shiny gemstones: red, purple, yellow, green, and blue.

The best-paying gems on the reels are yellow (diamonds) and green (emeralds): 5 of them will bring the player 60 and 50 coins, respectively.

Better than catching combinations of gemstones can only be landing a gold ‘BAR’ symbol or a Lucky 7. Just take a look.
