Fair Go is one of the most popular and reputed online casinos for Australian players. It is powered by the leading games supplier Realtime Gaming. Every month Fair Go selects one online pokie from its portfolios and players who wager on this pokie will earn double the normal loyalty points. For the month of January 2018 the Double Comps online pokie is Gemtopia. It can be played on both the desktop and mobile gaming platforms of Fair Go online casino.
Gemtopia has a simple structure of 5 reels and 3 rows of symbols. There are 15 selectable paylines, but you should always play with all paylines enabled. The first attraction of this online pokie is that winning combinations pay from both left to right and right to left. The diamond is an expanding wild symbol. However, the symbol can appear only on reels 2, 3 and 4. Another gem stone is the scatter symbol. When three scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels you will be paid twice the total bet. The other symbols are also gem stones that appear stacked on the reels. The top line payout is 500 times the line bet.
Realtime Gaming has introduced a feature in Gemtopia online pokie called Wild Respins. When you land a wild symbol anywhere on the reels, you will first be awarded the payout in the usual manner. Then all the reels that have wild symbols will be held fixed while the other reels will respin once. If these reels have wild symbols then another respin will be awarded. This continues till there are no new wilds or all the reels have wilds. Payouts will be awarded after each respin.
Gemtopia also includes a regular free spins feature that gets activated when the scatter symbols land on reels 2, 3 and 4. You will get 15 free spins with special bonus diamond symbols added to the reels. If three of them appear anywhere on the reels in the same free spin then three additional free spins will be awarded. The bonus symbols will also award up to 1000 times the bet. Since the scatter diamond symbols do not appear during the free spins, the feature cannot be retriggered.
Realtime Gaming mostly includes the Major and Minor progressive jackpots in its online pokies and these have been included in Gemtopia. Any one of these can be randomly hit after any spin. The maximum total bet per spin with all paylines enabled is AU$75, which will bring in the high rollers at Fair Go online casino.
