Simple but Classy
You won’t find any blockbuster graphics on this game nor eye popping 3D effects but that doesn’t mean that this slot doesn’t have a visual impact. With an innovative wavy frame, the layout is unusual to say the least and this is compounded by the glimmering jewel effect of the symbols on the tiles. With both gemstones and letters representing playing cards waiting to be spun, you’ll find there’s an appealing reflective shine which makes the game look high class.
Slide up the Jewels
When you’re ready to start playing, hit the spin button on the main screen and watch the tiles start to rotate. You’ll be playing on five reels but you won’t find the standard 5×3 configuration here. Instead, the wavy frame to the reels means that they are offset with a 4, 3, 4, 3, 4 formation. There are 40 fixed paylines which can’t be reduced, meaning that all of these are active with every spin of the reels. You can however decide how much you want to bet with, starting with just 0.01 per line and increasing up to 25.00. This provides a total min bet of just 0.40 and a total max bet of 1000.00, leaving plenty of scope for both low and high rollers.
Hit the Jackpot
Not available in demo mode, if you’re playing for real cash you’ll also have the chance of hitting one of the three progressive jackpots. To qualify you’ll need to land at least three of the diamond gemstones on the main reels. The more of the diamonds you land, the bigger the jackpot prize you’ll receive. Landing three leads to the Mini Jackpot, four symbols leads to the Midi Jackpot while all five diamonds leads to the Maxi Jackpot.
As well as the jackpots in the game, there’s a special bonus feature which the developer has given the unusual label of a “Reaction”. If you land five of the same colour along a payline a Reaction is triggered. This means that the win has a x2 multiplier applied and all of the winning icons will disappear. These will then be replaced by new symbols and the win multiplier will increase by x1. This special Reaction feature is a great way to rack up some big prizes with just a single spin.
Other Quirky Titles
If the unusual layout of Diamonds appeals to you, there’s plenty of other games which also steer clear of the standard 5×3 layout. Bruce Lee from WMS has five reels but there’s no boring rectangular design. Instead you’ll be playing on a 2, 2, 4, 4, 4 layout and a very high volatility rate. If it’s the jewel theme of this slot that appeals instead, you will have an even larger choice of other games to pick from.
Novomatic are a highly regarded developer and Dazzling Diamonds is their take on beautiful gemstones in an array of colours. A very simple game with few features, it’s an interesting play because you can line up the combinations starting anywhere on the reels, not just on the far left or right. And although there are not lots of extras, you could potentially win a big payout of up to 20,000 coins.

A simple game that won’t bamboozle you with lots of different features and bonuses, there’s still the opportunity to win big and claim a progressive jackpot prize. Diamonds is easy enough for beginners and with large enough rewards for high rollers, this is definitely a slot that all can enjoy.
