When you try to imagine a massive and mean-looking troll hiding in the depths of his dark and icy cave, the first thing that comes to your mind probably doesn’t include any beautifully glimmering and colorful gemstones.. But apparently someone at Hacksaw Gaming had such thought and just saw a great potential there in mixing these two together, and now as a result of that we get to enjoy their brand new release that is Gronk’s Gems.
The main feature and really the backbone of the game is the Cluster Pays mechanic, which means that there is no traditional winlines like there usually is in the slots that have reels in them, but instead wins are paid for symbol clusters of five or more identical symbols that are adjacent to each other on the games 6×6 sized grid.
Winning symbols will be removed from the grid, allowing new gems to drop in and fill their space. Additionally when you get a win, all the identical symbols elsewhere on the grid which weren’t part of the actual winning cluster will become charged symbols. The meter that is above your playarea will also reflect this and show which of your symbols are currently charged.
Now once you have some charged symbols in play, you can also land a big 2×2 sized Epic Gem symbol, which transforms all your charged symbols into the most valuable charged symbol. All the charged symbols are then absorbed into the Epic Gem symbol and paid out as a winning cluster. Since the Epic Gem is 2×2 sized and takes the space of four individual symbols, you will need at least one charged symbol elsewhere on your grid for it to be absorbed by the Epic Gem for a payout.
There is also two different Free Spin features included in the game, both of which will be triggered with their own Scatter symbols. Landing three Gronk’s Head scatter symbols anywhere on your grid will activate one of the free spin modes called Gronk’s Treasure. This gives you 10 free spins and works exactly like the base game, but with boosted Chanz of the Epic Gem symbol landing on your grid. The second feature is called Gem Hoarder and to activate that one you will need to land three Gem Bag scatter symbols anywhere in view. This gives you five free spins to start with and each time you land three Gem Bags during the feature the number of free spins will be reset back to five. Each win during this feature will also add +1x to your win multiplier.
Even after playing and testing this game for a good while, we are still wondering what exactly this behemoth of a troll has in common with beautiful sparkling jewels. But then again, does it even have to make sense? The game is entertaining and that is what matters the most of course. See what you think of it yourself and head to Chanz.com to try it out!
