Magic Gems is a beautifully crafted online video slot game produced by Leander Games. The theme of this slot is based around a small fairy that lives deep in an enchanted forest where players must find and collect hidden gems. The graphics and animation in this game are top-class with the animated fairy fluttering next to the reels during live play. The reels themselves are made up of tree vines strung between two large trees amidst the backdrop of an enchanted looking forest. The dreamy background music and vibrant animation work together to create a highly pleasant and entertaining slot experience.
5 Reel Fairy Themed Slot
In Magic Gems, the slot setup is based on the standard set of 5 reels with 40 paylines in which players can form winning combinations. In this game, the reels don’t spin, instead all the new symbols drop from above and slide into place. When a winning combination is achieved, the perky little fairy does a small dance and blows fairy dust onto the reels. The symbols in this game are all based around precious gemstones. The highest paying symbols include the diamond, the emerald and the Ruby. For the lower paying symbols, the game designers have used the standard high card symbols that have been styled to look like twisted tree vines.
Fairy Wild Symbol
In addition to the standard slot wins, Magic Gems also includes a number of game bonus features in the form of a wild symbol, free spins, sticky wilds as well as the novel “exploding chains” feature that occurs during live play. The wild symbol in this games is played by the fairy herself. The wild symbol can be used to substitute for any of the other gem and cards symbols in order to form a winning combinations. In this slot game, the wild symbol cannot substitute for the bonus symbol.
Magic Gems Exploding Chains Feature
One of the more lucrative bonus features in Magic Gems is the “Exploding Chains” feature. This feature occurs during live play as well as during free spins.

The good news is during the free spin round, the wild symbol becomes a sticky wild. This means that the fairy wild symbol will stay in positon on the reels throughout the entire free spin round. This means that player get more chances to create wining combinations.
