With a name like Glitz, you know this slot is probably going to be a gem game without even looking at it. However, WMS has a few tricks up its sleeve by taking the tried and true gem-game theme and putting it in a unique Money Burst reel set. It has two sections, one 2×2 with positions that spin independently and one 3×4, for a total of 60 adjustable pay-lines that include stacked wilds and symbol upgrades.

Glitz graphics and design
While Glitz is generally a gem game, it has a few additional symbols that represent wealth and glamour. On top of the classic lower-paying red, gold, blue, and green gems, you also have the purple diamond-shaped gem, green square gem, oval gold-framed gem, and the pearl as mid-level symbols. The highest-paying symbols are the diamond, emerald, and jewel-encrusted “G.”
The wild symbol shimmers with diamond-like multi-coloured facets, while the scatter is the not-so-subtle dollar-sign-engraved gold coin. Lounge music plays during the spins with other typical sound effects during wins. Overall, this is a bit higher quality than many gem games, with some noticeable effort put into creating a variety of symbols.

How Glitz’s bonus features work
Glitz’s free spins bonus round gives you free spins with four matching symbols held in the first 2×2 section.
There are three ways to trigger free spins:
- Four matching symbols in the 2×2 box in reels one and two awards five free spins.
- Three gold coin scatter symbols on reels three, four, and five award five free spins with a jewelry box pick for the four matching symbols in the 2×2 section.
- If you see both the four matching symbols and three scatters appear in one spin, you’re awarded 20 free spins and a jewelry box pick for a chance to upgrade your four symbols.
In all three ways, the four matching symbols are held until the free spins are complete, and the appearance of three scatters retriggers five additional free spins.
Jewelry Box pick
A red curtain falls and a Michael Jackson-sounding song comes on while the curtain rises to reveal brown jewelry boxes embellished with gold trim. If you’re picking for the chance to upgrade four matching gems, a pick that reveals a lower-paying symbol will be disregarded, and you’ll retain the higher-paying symbols. If you’re picking to add four matching gems to your free spins, you make your choice and then the curtain comes down before rising to reveal the reel set with the selected gems in place.
Stacks of up to four wilds can appear in the 3×4 section of the reel set for reels three, four, and five. A full screen of combinations of the “G” and wilds would give you the maximum win in one spin of 200 times your total bet.

Final thoughts on Glitz by WMS
For a gem slot, Glitz has some surprising complexity in gameplay that helps this game seem more modern than retro. For players who prefer complex graphics and themes, Glitz may still be a bit too simple. Multipliers and additional features would help this game keep the interest of players who prefer complex games. For reasonable graphics and a fun game experience, we give Glitz a rating of 6/10.
