Arcane Gems Overview
Arcane Gems was released on the 19th May 2020 by the world-famous software developers, Quickspin. They are behind some of the online casino world’s most popular games, including titles such as Prime Zone, Jewel Blast, Illuminous and Hammer of Vulcan. Quickspin always seems to try and break the mould a little bit, and Arcane Gems follows this pattern by not including the usually very popular bonus features of wild symbols and free spins…
Arcane Gems is played across a 5×3 set of reels with just nine pay lines. It has a decent average RTP of 96%, and a huge maximum payout which equates to 5625x your stake if you hit a lucky spin. You will need to wager stakes between £0.10 and £50 per spin for your chance to win. You already know that there aren’t any free spin or wild symbols, so what has Quickspin included? Well, they have decided to focus on locking symbols and multipliers to spice up the action.
Graphics and Theme
It’s an explorer-themed game that’s absent of a central character. However, the detailed graphics create a story that will have you wondering how you can get your hands on some of the gold coins scattered across the game screen. You’ll also notice an old school map and ancient navigation tools on the desk that suggests that we could be below the deck of a ship that’s sailing a mighty ocean in search of treasure. The reels are situated within a mysterious jewellery box, and the game controls are located horizontally at the bottom of your screen.
The soundtrack is very relaxing, so be careful not to fall asleep if you’re playing late at night. It combines a piano, violin, and a harp to create a delicate song. When you hit spin, the reels rotate with a quiet flickering noise and come to a stop one by one with a gentle thudding sound. When you land a winning combination, the symbols are locked into position with a whooshing noise which also sounds when you upgrade your multiplier.

Spade, diamonds, clubs and hearts make up the low paying symbols and will pay out a maximum of 1.4x your stake for five of a kind hearts. Next, the high paying symbols are made up of five coloured gemstones, with the blue diamond symbol being the most valuable. It’s worth 25x your stake for five of a kind.
Arcane Locking Feature
This feature triggers when you land three or more symbols in a winning combo. The symbols used in the highest winning combo will lock into position, while the rest of the symbols respin. If more of the same symbols land on the respin, they lock and the other symbols respins again. This feature will repeat itself until no more winning symbols land, and your winnings will be paid out in full on the first losing re-spin.
During this feature, if you fill an entire reel with the same winning symbol, you will be awarded with a multiplier between 2x and 5x your stake, which will be applied to the rest of your wins made during the feature. If you trigger more than one multiplier, they will be added together.
Arcane Gems How to Play
Arcane Gems is a simple game to follow and revolves around the locked symbol respins. Before you do anything, you will need to wager your stake between £0.10 and £50 per spin. Then you can hit spin or use the autoplay feature, which can perform up to 1000 spins for you. The max payout of 5625x your stake can be triggered by locking high-paying diamond symbols and combining numerous respins with large multipliers. The stars have to align to achieve the max payout, but the good news is the game will provide lots of nice respin runs, so it’s still exciting even if you don’t score the max payout.
Arcane Gems on Mobile
Arcane Gems is compatible with all iOS and Android mobile devices. It also adapts to different screen sizes, so you can also play for your PC or tablet device if you prefer a bigger screen size.
