Get your helmet and spade at the ready, it’s time to go digging! Head down deep into the pits with Playtech's Jewel Mine slot game. The graphics are certainly impressive, and it won’t be surprising to hear that there are symbols like jewels, mining picks, spades and torches to be found inside the reels. Set underground in a mine, this game takes exploring to a whole new level.

Don't worry though, there is no need to get your hands dirty in this virtual setting. The gameplay is actually straightforward to follow, and we are on hand to give you the lowdown on all the different game features. See below for more info.

Playing Jewel Mine

Before you enter underground in Jewel Mine slots, make sure to set yourself a strict budget and stick to it. The 10 paylines are completely fixed, so the only thing you need to do is change your wagering stake. This is done via the ‘total bet' menu where you click either up or down to increase or decrease your desired amount. Your betting stake will stay present at all times, so it is easy to keep track of your winnings/losses.

When you are happy with your set wager, click the spin button to spin the reels. This button has been designed to look like a TNT box, with an animated miner holding the lever. Let’s hope you see some explosive winnings come crashing down onto the reels then!

The slot machine is powered via a random number generator, so there is no skill involved with playing. If matching symbols land adjacently from the left to the right across a payline, winnings will be paid out to you.

After a quick dig? You might like the auto-play feature. This button lets you choose between 10, 20, 30, 40 or 50 spins to automatically take place for you.

Main Bonus Game

So, the main gameplay is easy enough to follow, but what about the Jewel Mine slot bonus game? Well, this is where things get rather interesting.

Each position in the reel contains a secret hidden jewel. If a payline is activated over a position, a big explosion will occur. After 5 separate explosions on each position, the special jewel will be revealed to you and awarded. When this particular jewel is granted, no more explosion can occur on that position.

What’s so special about these jewels we hear you ask? Luckily for you, each jewel has a different multiplying value:

  • Ruby = 4x
  • Sapphire = 3x
  • Emerald = 2x
  • Opal = 1x

Jewels are often associated with having some big value, and inside this slot game, this is no different.

Jewel Cavern Bonus

Alongside the main bonus game, there is also the jewel carven feature. This is triggered if a full window of miner’s hats symbols land onto the reels. They will pay all line wins and activate a mega explosion, clearing all the remaining positions and collecting each of the revealed jewels. If this happens, you will be taken to the jewel cavern bonus.

Your screen will then be diverted to a setting deeply rooted inside the mines. Press the miner's plunger to blow the wall and discover more potential jewels. After the explosion, you will then be taken to the next cavern and follow the same game format. After three blasts, the bonus game will be finished, and you will take any of your potential multiplying values with you!

In terms of the progressive jackpot, this will be unlocked if three diamonds are found inside this feature. The jackpot fund can be seen at all times in the top right corner of your screen. Depending on how much you staked on your spin would potentially impact the percentage of the jackpot released to you:

  • 5% of max stake = 0.5% of jackpot amount
  • 0% of max stake = 1.0% of jackpot amount
  • 5% of max stake = 2.5% of jackpot amount
  • 0% of max stake = 5.0% of jackpot amount
  • 0% of max stake = 10.0% of jackpot amount
  • 0% of max stake = 15.0% of jackpot amount
  • 0% of max stake = 25.0% of jackpot amount
  • 0% of max stake = 35.0% of jackpot amount
  • 0% of max stake = 50.0% of jackpot amount
  • 100% of max stake = 100% of jackpot amount

At the end of this bonus round, the game will reset, and you will start the ordinary game again with all 15 positions full of rock.
