Trolls are known to be lumbering creatures with crushing physical strength who often stand in for a high-level threat to fable heroes. Despite the rugged exterior, Gronk the troll is out to change the purview of the entire troll race. With a face that seems more curious than angry, the friendly giant asks players for a simple favor, picking the protruding crystals off his back in exchange for shiny, refined gems, a task worth up to 7500x the bet for those willing to get their hands dirty.

Betting Options and Bonus Features

Cronk’s Gems plays on a 6x6 grid full of gems at all times. It doesn’t utilize any win ways but instead follows the Cluster Pays mechanic, where players need at least five matching symbols adjacent to one another to score a win. The feature continues to cascade, potentially creating more wins until there are none to keep it going. In Cronk’s Gems, there are plenty of beautiful rare minerals to play with, from deep blue sapphires to green jades. However, players should look for the diamonds, which pay 1500x the bet for a cluster of 36+ symbols.

The sound design of Cronk’s Gems consists of a soothing melody accompanied by the sounds of crickets, which makes for a peaceful gameplay experience. Much like the music, the volatility of the base game is at a medium level as the game is reliable to hit more consistently. Sitting at 96.24%, the RTP is generous as well. The above factors all seem to make Cronk's Game easier for players to achieve the end goal of 7500x.

Cronk’s Gems does not have any wild symbols but instead uses three unique characters, specifically Cronk’s Head, Gem Bag, and X Gems; all appear randomly throughout the game. Each of these mechanics brings a different flavor of entertainment to the game.

The first one is the Bonushunt and Featurespins mechanic. Whenever players score a win, other gems of the same type enter a “charged state” where they glow with vigor. A bar on top of the grid keeps track of the charged crystal. During each cascade, the Epic Rainbow Gem might drop randomly. When the game runs out of winning combinations, the Epic Rainbow Gem turns all the charged symbols into the highest-paying one on the track bar for one big payout. The Epic Gems count as four symbols in one, so as long as there is at least one charged symbol in play, players will score. After collecting all the symbols, Epic Rainbow Gems will explode, creating space for more cascades.

The second feature is Gronk’s Treasure Bonus Round with Free Spins. Players need to collect three Gronk’s Head Scatters to trigger this feature. The game then rewards players with ten free spins. During the round, chances of achieving Epic Rainbow Gems increase noticeably, seeing the game turning in favor of the players.

Players can land at least three Gems Bag Scatters to trigger the Gem Hoarder Bonus Round. The game only awards players with 5 Free Spins. However, players can reset the free spins counter by landing another three Gems Bag Scatters during the round. Each winning combination in the feature contributes to the global multiplier by +1. Only winnings with X Gems symbols connect with the global multiplier. Gem Hoarder is by far the ultimate level in Gronk’s Gems, offering massive bonuses and a multiplier that stays active across the round.

Finally, players can pay 3x, 100x, and 200x the bet for instant access to Bonushunt Featurespins, Gronk’s Treasure, and Gem Hoarder bonus round, respectively.

Roshtein’s Take

I can't count how many times Gronk’s Gems arsenal of features has blown me away. You have cluster pays, symbol collectors with huge multipliers, and a decent bonus round with free spins. There is a high chance of refilling the respins bar with the Gem Hoarder feature, which is deceptively short. Overall, an entertaining slot perfect for those who are looking for action-packed gameplay.
