Hold It Right There…!
There’s an innovative means of entering the bonus round, and in doing so you actually find yet another feature; the Hold n Spin. For it to work, you’ll need the diamond symbol, aka the bonus tile, to appear in a grouping of between two and four. When that happens, a locking in process will begin.
The icons will only turn into locks if they’ve been part of a paying combination, which does make the likelihood of landing the feature a difficult one. However, once a reel has been converted into locks, the remaining columns will spin up to three more times; you can either lock more in or fail. Locking more in leads you to the true bonus round.
Picking the Lock
The feature level is the Break In Bonus, aptly named because you literally have to breakthrough several doors to make your way to the end of the round. As you go from one round to the next, the number of choices you can make become smaller, and so more margins for errors appear.
You can be confronted with a flashing red light, a sign of having been caught and the round will terminate, or you’ll be shown a diamond and be allowed to carry onwards. Even should you face the dreaded red of the siren, you’ll still be given a multiplier and free games to savour, which seems mightily generous.
Connect the Dots
Lightning Box have returned to their favoured setup of ways to play rather than paylines, which means that landing a combo is not only easier but also more tricker.
The reason for this? The winning symbols need to be in a consecutive pattern from left to right, which can prove incredibly difficult to execute. That being said, you’re likely to get more wins due to the sheer size of the grid and its openness to the movement of its symbols.
Even though it’s natural to assume that you’ll succeed every time you spin, you’ll find the victories less forthcoming; they’ll trigger, but only every other round or so. The 1,024 ways to play fools you into spending more cash, thinking the odds are stacked against the system and not you. Know better and learn that the system is still the favoured one.
High Roller, Baby
The paytable is rather giving with its donations to begin with, but should you decide to stake the maximum bet, then you’ll be looking at wins of up to 10,000 credits in value. That’s very impressive, though fitting when you consider the theme of the slot. However, you’ll note that the top wager is priced at 200 credits, which is rather costly to the vast majority of gamers.
A Kingdom of Wealth
Money makes this game go round, both in a literal and theoretical sense, which makes it a paradise for all you VIPs out there who crave the respect that comes with the smell of money. Diamond Tower is an adventurous and yet traditional slot, making it flexible depending on your mood. It’s a worthy title to try out, but it’s unlikely you’ll be captivated with it for too long, as the bonus round loses its allure after a couple of tries; such is the limited variance here.
