We Explore What Riches Are to Be Found in the Arcane Gems Slot From Quickspin!
Mr Green Casino has added Quickspin’s newest slot release Arcane Gems to their casino which is being touted as another higher variance slot release from them, boasting a maximum win of 5625x your bet!
The Arcane Gems slot uses a regular 5×3 reel layout but has just 9 active paylines, winning combination are formed when 3 or more matching symbols land on a payline, these are then locked in place (Arcane Lock Mechanics) and you are awarded a re-spin of the reels, if further matching symbols land in view this process repeats until no new winning combinations land.
Whilst the symbols get locked in place if you manage to completely fill a reel with symbols then you are also awarded a random multiplier in the range of 2x up to 5x, and this can be awarded on every single reel which is where the full potential for the biggest wins is to be found!
There is no main bonus feature as such to be found of Arcane Gems and given the way the re-spin mechanic works this isn’t really needed and the slot benefits from a constant fast-paced action with regular re-spins and locking symbols.
Whilst the lock and a re-spin mechanic isn’t something new the addition of multipliers which can reach a maximum of 25x really help to give this slot a big boost in terms of the volatility and of course maximum win potential!
It’s nice to see that Quickspis more recent releases are finally starting to cater to the slot players desire for higher volatility and more win potential!

Arcane Gems Slot – Special Features
Arcane Lock Mechanics
Landing a winning combination in the base game triggers the Arcane Lock Mechanics. The highest winning symbols are locked in place and any other winning symbols are paid out. The respins continues until no more matching symbols land.
During the re-spins, if you fill a full reel with locked symbols you are awarded a random reel multiplier between 2 to 5.
The total multiplier is the sum of all awarded multipliers up to a maximum of 25x if there is a full screen of locked symbols.
The maximum full-screen prize is 5625x stake which requires the premium symbol at a 25x multiplier!
Arcane Gems Slot
The Arcane Gems slot from Quickspin is a visually superb slot release, whilst the gameplay certainly isn’t groundbreaking with a simple re-spin mechanic the addition of multipliers up to 25x does certainly adds quite a bit of variance and win potential to this slot.
The lack of the main bonus feature can be harmful in most cases to the overall excitement of a slot but this machine does a decent job of keeping the action fast and furious with plenty of respins.
We did manage several wins over 100x in our regular playtests and to show off the maximum payout was shown above using the developer version of the slot purely to display the max winning potential.
The biggest positive is Quickspins recent shift into making much more volatile releases, it might take some time for players to test out their games again but it is a very welcome shift in direction from us!
