Similar to games like Candy Crush Saga and Bejeweled, Cool Jewels is certainly an addictive game to keep players hooked to it for hours.

Cool Jewels has a return to player (RTP) of 96.01 percent and cannot be played on mobile devices yet.
Bonus Features of Cool Jewels
Even without a jackpot, Cool Jewels offers great bonus and free spins features. Bonus features included in the game are :
Free spins : Players can trigger the free spins feature in Cool Jewels by landing 4 Cool Jewels symbols that must be destroyed by explosions and not matched. Players can receive free spins depending on the number of Cool Jewels symbols they land, that is, 4, 5, 6 and 7 Cool Jewels symbols gives players 8, 10, 15 and 20 free spins respectively. Also, each additional bonus symbol will give the players 5 extra spins.
Cascading symbols : This is one of the most important features of Cool Jewels, mainly because it relates to the ‘value meter’ provided on the left hand side of the screen. If a player lands four or more of theses symbols, they are replaced by more symbols which in turn can form more combos resulting to more symbols and so on. The meter level rises one slice with each symbol, increasing the value to a maximum of 0.50 coins each.
Wild symbols : There are various symbols included in the game that become active when they are a part of any winning combo. The shocking wild symbol destroys all symbols placed diagonal to it while the exploding symbol destroys everything surrounding it. Likewise, the blasting wild symbol demolishes all symbols placed horizontally and vertically to the symbol.
The game offers extra features in case two wild symbols land next to each other in a winning combination. These symbols leave behind trails of green, blue and pink squares, offering additional opportunities to win more. Also, the two matching wild symbols stay frozen through each cascade till the time they reach the bottom.
Cool Jewels is the type of game you would want to play when looking for something different and out of the box. Players can set the auto play feature to watch the jewels being destroyed and falling into places automatically. With enough experience on the game play, players will know that the free spins feature is where they can earn large amounts of money rather than the base game. With great graphics and soundtracks that get you going, Cool Jewels is definitely a game that can excite even the best of slot players around the world.
