How to Play
To begin playing Bejewelled at pokies online for real money, players must first choose how many paylines to activate. The game has paylines that run horizontally and vertically. Lines 1 to 5 are the horizontal lines and lines 6 to 10 are the vertical lines. The up and down arrows on the left of the lines button are used to choose the paylines. Players must then select how much to bet on each payline. Players can bet a minimum of 0.05 up to a maximum of 10.00 for each payline. The bet can be adjusted by clicking on the up and down arrows next to the bet button.
Players can choose the max bet button if they would like to spin the reels using the maximum paylines and their current bet. By selecting this option the reels will spin when the max bet button is pressed. The play button will spin the reels. The autoplay option is for players who would like the reels to spin uninterrupted for a certain amount of spins. This can be activated by using the autoplay button and players can select how many spins they would like.
Once the reels begin to spin the gem stones will fall down onto the reels and as they land there will be a clinking sound. If there is a win on the paylines the sound effects will change to announce the win.
Symbols and Payouts
In order to receive a payout in Bejewelled players would need to have a minimum of 3 symbols appear on the paylines. These wins will appear in vertical or horizontal rows. If there is a winning combination those stones will disappear and be replaced by new ones which drop down from the top of the screen. The blue stone will payout 500 coins for 5, 200 coins for 4 and 100 coins for 3. The red gem stone has a payout of 100 coins for 5, 50 coins for 4 and 20 coins for 3.

The Bejewelled logo is the wild symbol and can substitute for all of the symbols in order to create winning combinations. If players can land 5 wild symbols on paylines 1 to 9 they will be rewarded with 1000 times their bet. Players will win 8000 times their bet if 5 matching symbols appear on payline 5 and if 5 more appear on lines 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10. The super jackpot of 20000 times the payline bet is won if players land 5 wild symbols on payline 10.
