Everybody wishes that they could collect a board full of expensive jewels, but most of the time these expensive trinkets are reserved for the rich and famous. Get up close and personal with rich rewards, thanks to SG Digital and Barcrest their Winfall slot game, where you have the potential of racking up to 4,000 x your line bet or 250,000 coins in one swoop.
Theme and Background
This jewel themed slot is a simple slot game with a basic layout. 15 expensive gems of varying colours fill the gold-framed reel set, which is set upon a purple silk cushion background.
The accompanying soundtrack for the game will catch you a little unawares. The silly playful tune is not what you would expect from a jewel slot, but sets a jovial mood to the game that is quite welcome. It will have you whistling along in no time at all.
There are only 5 symbols in this game. Each of them is a different shape and colour, including a yellow diamond, blue jewel, red jewel, purple jewel, and green jewel. There are no special symbols in the game, whatsoever.
The Barcrest slot game is played over a 5 reel and 3-row format, where there are 23 different paylines set up across the grid in both vertical and horizontal lines. There are no diagonal pay patterns in this title.
To get the game underway, we advise you to select a bet that suits your bankroll and strategy best. This can be done easily by toggling the little left and right arrows at the bottom of the user interface. Hit the big round button to spin away.
The Auto Spin feature can be called upon if you would like the machine to spin the reels for you automatically. You can choose between 10 and 200 auto spins.
While Winfall does not have a dedicated free spin game, the bonus features offered can still rack up some decent prizes.
If a combination win is made, all of the icons involved in the combo will disappear, causing the blocks above to tumble down to fill the spaces left. This cascade affords a second chance at landing a win.
Each time a cascade takes place, you will see that the bonus meter to the left of the reels will move one position upward on a consecutive tumble. Should you reach the 6th level, you will trigger the Double Diamond Bonus round.
Double Diamond Bonus
Once the round is activated, you will be taken away to another screen, where a disc with 16 positions is awaiting your spin. 12 of the positions are made up of instant cash rewards, while the other 4 are reserved for a 2x multiplier.
The wheel selectors will spin around the disc. If they land on a cash amount, the prize will be instantly added to your bankroll. If you land on a 2x multiplier, each of the cash prizes will double in value and you will get to spin the disc again with the better prizes in play.
Play 'On The Go'
Thanks to Barcrest, Winfall is simple enough in its desktop variant, so transposing the title to play in landscape on your mobile phone or tablet was not a difficult task.
Sounds and high definition visuals remain standard across platforms thanks to HTML 5 browser technology.
