How To Play

Each Gem Stacks game ticket features a play area with 9 symbols in a 3x3 grid (Level 1), a Prize Chart, and 3 meters for tracking collected Bonus Symbols.

After each play, 9 symbols will be revealed on Level 1. Reveal a cluster of three or more matching symbols where each symbol is directedly above, below, or to the left or right of another matching symbol to win the corresponding prize in the Prize Chart. The cluster of 3 or more matching symbols is then removed from the play area.  If all the symbols on Level 1 are removed, a 4x4 grid of new symbols is unlocked (Level 2). If all symbols on Level 2 are removed, a 5x5 grid is unlocked (Level 3).

Reveal a CLEAR symbol to clear any non-winning symbols on the current level and move to the next level.

Reveal an INSTANT PRIZE mask to win the prize shown.

Reveal four MULTIPLIER symbols during a single play to double any prizes won on the main grid.

Reveal three like BONUS symbols to unlock the corresponding Bonus Game.

There are three BONUS symbols:

  • Level 1 Bonus – This can be revealed on Level 1, 2 or 3 
  • Level 2 Bonus – This can be revealed on Level 2 or 3
  • Level 3 Bonus – This can be revealed on Level 3

Level 1 Bonus Game:

The Bonus starts with a 2x2 grid of face down tiles. The tiles automatically flip to reveal a symbol. This constitutes 1 Turn.

Symbols that can be revealed are as follows:

Prize Multiplier - this gets added to the MULTIPLIERS TOTAL WON.

Gray Flip Again Symbol - this flips the tile again in the next round (the next Turn).

Right Arrow - this adds new tiles to the right of the grid which are then revealed in the next Turn.

Left Arrow - this adds new tiles to the left of the grid which are then revealed in the next Turn.

Up Arrow - this adds new tiles to the top of the grid which are then revealed in the next Turn.

Down Arrow - this adds new tiles to the bottom of the grid which are then revealed in the next Turn.

Level 2 Bonus Game:

This plays out the same as Level 1 except an additional symbol can be revealed:

+1 - this adds 1 one time, to any Prize Multiplier already revealed on the board.

Level 3 Bonus Game:

This plays out the same as Level 2 except an additional symbol can be revealed:

+2 - this adds 2 one time, to any Prize Multiplier already revealed on the board.

For all Bonus Games the game continues until there are no Gray Flip Again Symbols on the board and all power ups have been applied at which point the TICKET COST is multiplied by MULTIPLIERS TOTAL WON figure and awarded.
