Jewel of the Arts has an Oriental theme and includes symbols such as geishas, samurais, fans and origami. There is music that plays in the background while the game is being played and has an 80’s synthesiser sound to it. The music is a mix of club beats, fast drum beats and oriental sounds, with string sound and the sound of an old mechanical reel as the reels spin.
Jewel of the Arts was developed by IGT and released in 2014. It is a five reel online slot game with twenty paylines. The background is a Japanese garden full of blossoms and at the end of each reel players will see blossoms falling to the ground. Jewel of the Arts also has the basic card symbols, Jack, Queen, King and Ace, which are drawn using calligraphy and enhance the Oriental theme of the game. These symbols do not carry a high value. The origami bird, Japanese decorated fan and Japanese warrior are the more valuable symbols.
Features and Symbols
The wild symbol is the geisha girl, dressed in a golden head dress and a red gown. The wild symbol will appear on the second, third and fourth reels only and will substitute for any of the other symbols, except the bonus symbol, which will help to get more payouts. The fan dance symbol triggers the main feature of the game.
The fan dance multiplier is one of the bonus features and players can trigger this by landing on two of the fan dance symbols and players will be awarded a multiplier of two times their bet. The fan dance bonus will trigger free spins and players will be able to get this if they land on three fan dance symbols.
Players must start with three spins and on the first spin reel two will be wild, the second spin reel two and three will be wild and on the third spin all three of the reels will be wild. Players who land on the extra spin symbol on reel one during the fan dance bonus round will be given an extra free spin with the wild reels in the same place. Players can win extra money by playing the bonus feature game, the fan dance bonus game, which is the scatter and will always be active even if not on the payline.
