Jewel of the Arts

Geisha Girls and Samurai Warriors in Jewel of the Arts Slots

Jewel of the Arts is a slots game by International Game Technology that has been given a background of a Japanese garden, with falling cherry blossoms. The graphics of the game are also stunning, and represent all the arts and culture of Japan.

Symbols include a Geisha girl, a Samurai Warrior, a Fan and even an Origami Bird.  The basic playing card symbols are still present, from nine to the ace, but they are in different colours and drawn in the style of Japanese calligraphy. The symbol with the highest value in the game is the Jewel of the Arts logo. This will pay the player a  reward of 1,000 times the original bet placed, when five of these logos appear anywhere on the reels.

The background music on Jewel of the Arts also has an Oriental theme, synthesizer type music with a fast drum track, and even a touch of pipe music in the mix.

History and Details

This game was released in 2014, and provides the top class gaming experience that people have come to expect from the leading developer, IGT. The minimum bet is very low, but with a huge maximum jackpot on offer. This means that IGT have allowed for players of all levels of experience and with different budget limitations to be able to play this game.

The Great Fan Dance Bonus Round

Jewel of the Arts has five reel and twenty pay lines. The Geisha girl in her red kimono is the Wild, and can replace all other symbols in a winning combination, except for the Scatter symbol. The Scatter symbol is represented by a logo that says Fan Dance Bonus, and this icon is the key to the main bonus feature.

When three or more of this Scatter symbol appear anywhere on the central three reels, it will trigger the Jewel of the Arts bonus feature. The bonus feature includes three free spins. In the first free spin, the second reel will become locked in as a Wild, and in the second spin the third reel as well as the second reel will become Wild. In the third spin all three of the central reels will be locked in as Wilds. If the player is lucky enough to land an Extra Spins symbol on one of the reels, he can win an additional free spin with all three reels still Wild. It is possible for the player to manage a win of up to twenty free spins this way. High payouts are possible with these free spins, with good prizes on offer.

Another Bonus Round with the Fan Dance

There is also a minor bonus round available, which is triggered when the player lands two of the Fan Dance Scatter symbols anywhere on the centre three reels. This will award the player with a bonus multiplier of two times the original total stake placed.

This is where the highest paying symbol comes into the picture, and when the player is lucky enough to find some of them on reels 1 and reel 5, there will be lots of treasure won. On average the player can expect between 50 times and 150 times the bet. Even bigger wins can be won as well, with up to 500 times the original bet.
