Prizes to make you Purr
There are several sets of symbols within the main game of Diamond Cats plus those two specials – the wild and the bonus – to help you to make the most of your spins.
Each set of symbols pays out a differing reward, with prizes increased when you match three, four or five of the same symbol. The figures presented here are based on the minimum bet, which is 20 coins, and the more you bet the more you win!
At the lower end of the scale there are the playing card symbols, which are split into two paying categories: the Queen, Jack and Ten pay 10 coins, 20 coins and 100 coins for matching three, four or five on a payline respectively, whilst the Ace and King are slightly more rewarding; paying as they do 15 coins, 25 coins and 200 coins.
Then there are three pairs of cats which pay out on ascending scale. These earn anything from 20 coins for matching three right up to 500 coins for spinning five: simply consult the paytable for more information as it is too tricky to differentiate between the different cats on offer.
The last of the main game symbols is the pretty lady who is holding the ginger tom cat. She delivers the most lucrative of the base game prizes, paying as she does 50 coins for matching three on an active payline, 500 coins for four and 1,000 coins for five.
It’s news that slot gamers all around the globe will love: Diamond Cats features not one but two special symbols. This can be an area of consternation in some Amatic titles, some of which only feature one special symbol, so you’ll love the opportunity to spin a wild and a bonus icon here.
The bonus symbol, which is the Bonus Spins, pays 40 coins for matching three, 200 coins for matching four and a very generous 2,000 coins for spinning five on an active payline. As if those juicy payouts weren’t enough to keep you on tenterhooks, spinning three or more of the Bonus Spin symbol awards players with 10 free spins too!
In the free spins bonus round players simply spin their reels as normal – safe in the knowledge that they aren’t spending a penny for the privilege. This continues until all freebies have been used up, which of course gives players a great opportunity to accumulate a nice prize kitty (pun intended). This feature can also be re-triggered by spinning three or more of the Bonus Spins symbol from a free spin.
Would you like some more good news? Well, any wilds that you spin will be held in place until the end of your free spins: and this can result in some outstanding wins being created.
The wild symbol, which is the Pink Heart, substitutes for all other symbols on the game board except Bonus Spins. This can create opportunities for making winning combinations where there weren’t any before; for example, if you spin two matching cats on reels 2 and 4 and the wild symbol drops into line between them then you will scoop the relevant prize!
As with the vast majority of Amatic slot games, there is a gamble feature too that enables players to have the chance of doubling or quadrupling their wins. You will be presented with a playing card that is laid face down on the table, and you can guess either the colour (2x) or the suit (4x) to determine your payout. This can be repeated up to three times.
