A Gem Based Slot Featuring the Money Burst System
Playing the Glitz slot is akin to entering a jeweller. On the reels you’ll find a variety of diamonds, rubies, emeralds, amethysts and more. Already you’re thinking that this slot just shouts money, however there is more than just the gems to this game. When playing Glitz you’ll enjoy the Money Burst system, which promises more opportunities for those large oversize wins – giving you the opportunity to purchase those gems perhaps. With stacked wilds helping you all along too, you might even have to invest in a safe!
Glitz is an enticing high-variance game, with the following range of features:

Glitz is particularly unusual, as there are three ways to enter the feature and each offers its own range of rewards:
Four matching symbols on reels 1A, 1B, 2A and 2B (reels one and two each hold two symbols that spin independently). This will award you with 5 free spins with the four matching symbols held in place throughout the spins.
Land the golden dollar feature symbol on reels 3, 4 and 5. Once again you’ll receive five free spins. Before the spins begin you’ll pick a jewellery box to reveal a symbol which will fill reels 1A, 1B, 2A and 2C. Once again, the symbols on these first two reels will be held.
Match four symbols on reels 1A, 1B, 2A and 2B, as well as the golden dollar feature symbols on reels 3, 4 and 5. You’ll now be awarded 20 free spins. This time around you’ll choose a jewellery box again, and if the symbol is higher in value than the symbols on reels 1 and 2, it will replace them. Those symbols will be sticky throughout the feature.
Glitz is a slot that utilises the Money Burst system. This format is an interesting, as the whole of the first two reels feature just four symbols. Therefore, if you manage to match those symbols, many win lines are still in play by the time you get to reel 3. This gives you more opportunity than a more standard game, where you might see just a handful of lines or less still in play. This system makes for a higher variance game – you’ll win less often, but when you do, you can win big!
There are a total of 60 win-lines in play and these are indicated by the rainbow coloured lines to the left of reel one. Each spin comes at the cost of 30 credits, as you’ll pay 1 credit per 2 lines.
A look at the pay table tells you that the wild and the title ‘G’ are the highest payers, both worth 200 coins for the maximum five. The diamond and the emerald are next, worth 150 coins. The middle and lower ends of the pay table are filled with a variety of gems including pearls, marble and a mix of coloured gems.
You could never accuse Glitz of not being a colourful game with all of those gems around. However, the overall design is a little basic. The backdrop to the reels is a simple dark red, while the reels are backed by an equally simple dark blue. The only real action of the screen is the ‘Money Burst’ symbol above reels one and two. The easy listening tune that plays throughout is therefore representative of the design. If you do like a no-frills game however, where the focus is directly on the action on the reels, this might be ideal.
There is little doubt that Glitz is an unusual game with an interesting format. The Money Burst system adds excitement to any game, with the potential for some incredibly good spins. However, the design of this game is too simple to really excite players who like entertaining visuals. Fortunately, those players can enjoy the same format when playing the ‘Bruce Lee’ slot from WMS. If you like to keep it simple, Glitz is a nice fit.
