A new month is just around the corner, and that means that several online casino software groups will be announcing their new game releases for August. One of these is Realtime Gaming, and it comes as no surprise that this software group is among the first to put out information about its new August game. Players have come to rely on RTG’s regular monthly releases, and this month is no exception.
Gemtopia, a five reel, 15 line progressive video slot game, will go live at the South African friendly online casino on August 16th. It will be available for play on the download casino, as well as in instant play and mobile play formats.
“We like to think all out games are gems at Springbok Casino, but Gemtopia is literally a shower of gems. That’s what makes the game so mesmerizing and beautiful to behold,” noted Daniel van Wyk, Springbok Casino Manager who is always on hand to welcome new games to the portfolio and explain to players what they can expect to find in the new title.
“We’re committed to providing fresh content every month to keep you guys happy, but it’s not just any old content,” he said. “It’s about bringing you the latest, most cutting-edge and most-engaging new games out there, and Gemtopia is the latest testament to that.”
What do we know about RTG’s new Gemtopia slot game?
For starters, those who have previewed the game say that it reminds them of personal favorites in the same genre such as Bejeweled slot. Gemtopia – as its name suggests – has its reels populated by sparkling precious stones. In the background, a gentle, almost ethereal soundtrack plays, to add to the mystical mood of this game.
However don’t let the zen mood fool you! Gemtopia steps up a notch or ten when it comes to bonus action. There are two bonus modes in this game – the Wild Re-Spin feature and the Free Games with Bonus Picks feature. Every time an expanding wild gem appears on the reels, a Re-spin is triggered and you are instantly awarded a re-spin with the expanded wild held in place. If wilds appear after the re-spin, another will be awarded.
South African casino players could also win up to 15 free games, during which time extra bonus gems are added to the reels. If you land three or more of these games during the free games, you could earn up to 1,000 x your bet per gem.
