Gem Rocks a New 4096 Payline Slot From Yggdrasil Gaming Featuring Cascading Wins and Giant Symbols!
Videoslots Casino has just added a brand new 4096-payline slot from Yggdrasil Gaming titled Gem Rocks to their casino, using a huge 6×4 reel layout and pay any way payline format and several gigantic symbols with a huge up to 9000x stake win possible!
The Gem Rocks slot uses a cascading style of wins format similar to slots such as Gonzo’s Quest, where any winning combinations formed on the reels are removed with new symbols appearing at the top, this process continues until no new wins are created.
With no main bonus round on offer instead Gem Rocks focuses entirely on the base gameplay with a special Gem Rock Feature that activates after a specific number of consecutive wins, this is all tracked to the left of slot reels with a handy Gem Rock Meter which displays how close you are to triggering one of the special Giant Rock symbols.
There are 3 different Gem Rocks features that can activate and these add a giant symbol to the reels followed by a guaranteed win, the first stage reached adds a 2×2 sized symbol and if further levels are reached this can end with a huge 4×4 symbol being added to the reels.
In essence, this is a really simplistic slot, with a nice mini-feature that activates on 2, 5 and 9 consecutive wins that add a giant symbol to the reels.

The Gem Rock Feature
The Gem Rocks slot doesn’t have a bonus round to trigger instead you are looking for consecutive wins from the removal of winning symbols and the addition of new symbols after each spin.
This eventually leads to the Gem Rock Feature activating with the consecutive wins nicely tracked with a handy meter found to the left of the slot.
At certain breakpoints, the Gem Rock feature activates adding giant symbols to the reels which creates a win.
- 2 Wins – 2×2 Giant Symbol
- 5 Wins – 3×3 Giant Symbol
- 9 Wins – 4×4 Giant Symbol
Gem Rocks Slot
Gem Rocks is a decent slot from Yggdrasil, however, the lack of the main bonus round to trigger does mean that this slot can get tiresome when playing for an extended period, on the flip side it probably makes a very decent slot to complete wagering on with no interruptions!
The Giant Symbols and Gem Rocks features are well done, but be warned in our playtests at best we managed to hit the 3×3 Giant Symbol a few times, the 4×4 symbol, however, does potentially offer some huge wins when combined with the 4096 pay lines so this could be a sleeper slot that requires more testing.
Overall though Gem Rocks misses the target slightly for us with an overall lack of excitement and lack of special features on offer.
