About Bejeweled Cascades
Looking at the visual elements on offer from Bejeweled Cascades, you’re looking a strong and defined background that gives you the feeling you might have traveled to some off world centre of fun. The symbols in the game rely on large versions of the coloured crystals that come straight out of the Pop Cap games version, together with some of the special symbols, creating a congruent and attractive visual theme.
Base game wise Bejeweled Cascades gives you a twenty five line base game structure that comes complete with wild symbols and a triple scatter feature activation system that should be familiar to any casino game player. In addition to the standard win system, any combination you land in instantly disappears from the grid leaving spaces into which the symbols above can drop forming new combos and re-triggering this mechanism.
Stop in three of the golden quest scatters and you’ll get to choose one revealing the bonus type you’ll receive. These include the fabulous Butterfly Free Spins, the Buried Treasure bonus and the Mystery Cash prize. The Butterfly Free Spins give you ten free spins on a second set of reels where you’re paid out a multiplier for each successive cascade up to a maximum of 5x.
The Buried Treasure bonus is all a little on the crazy side. Once you activate this bonus, you’re taken to a standard Bejeweled grid. Lightning shoots out of one of the puzzle boxes and zaps a whole ton of jewels, leaving spaces into which the remaining crystals fall setting off chains of combinations. This gives you a chance to find various items submerged below the grid. If you can find all three items then you’ll be in for an extra special bonus prize.
The mystery cash award is sometimes the most lucrative of all the Bejeweled Cascade bonus rounds, but it also is the least exciting, with the only intrigue being the amount of cash that floats its way into your bank balance. Nonetheless this is a nice little reward to pick up that never goes amiss.
