Bejeweled is a well-respected name in the world of online gaming, there are different variations of the game and Bejeweled 2 takes the well-loved features of the original game and adds in the slots angle, to make this is a great slots game. It has 5 reels and 20 paylines which we like as it gives you more chances of getting a win. You can wager 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p or £1 when you play, and can win up to x 10,000 the coin size which is a great return on your money.
If we were to have a slight criticism it would be that the music can get a bit annoying sometimes, so we did appreciate the fact that you could turn it off and play in silence. If you’re new to playing slots the fact that there are three different bonus symbols may be a bit overwhelming to begin with, but they aren’t as bad as they first look.
The wild symbol is a multi-coloured spinning ball, and will substitute for all other symbols except for the three different bonus symbols. It will double any win it helps you get and also leads to the highest payout.
We do like the fact that you can play Bejeweled 2 for just 1p, great if you’re on a budget but still want to play a few games. Whenever you win you can clearly see which line you have won on and what the winning amount was. Having three bonus rounds is always a good thing, and these ones can lead to some great payouts. We also love how the makers have improved on what was already a great game and made it even better!
Bejeweled 2 is a great looking slots game with nice clear symbols. Most people will have played Bejeweled before, but to newcomers to the game the symbols are chunky jewels in bright colours, as well as letters and number representing the high cards. Beneath the screen are the various buttons which will help you prepare to play.
There is a seven page paytable which explains the symbols, combinations and the three different bonus features. You can use the plus and minus symbols by the coin size button to select your coin size, and you can either click onto the coloured numbers at the side of the reels to choose how many lines you want to play with or use the Bet One and Bet Max buttons.
- There is a Free Spins feature which will be triggered if you get three or more of the free spins symbols anywhere on the reels. 3 symbols will give you 15 free spins, 4 symbols will get you 25 and 5 symbols will get you 50 free spins. Before you play with these you’ll see various multiplier values, click onto the screen and the value you stop on will multiply any wins you get. You can win more free spins when on this feature and can enter a bonus round, so there is huge potential for a great win.
- The Wheel of Riches bonus round is triggered when you get three or more of the purple bonus symbols. You’ll then be able to spin the wheel, and the multiplier you land on will multiply your total stake.
- The Bejeweled 2 Scatter Bonus round is triggered when you get three or more of the scatter symbol anywhere on the reels. On this bonus game you need to get three or more matching Bejeweled gems in a row, either vertically or horizontally – the jewels will then disappear, giving you a cash prize and letting other jewels drop into the empty places. A Powergem in any win will double the prize and destroy surrounding gems, whilst a Hypercube on the screen will give you a mystery win, as well as destroying all jewels of a random colour. When there are no more possible wins the bonus round will stop.
