The game, while incorporating icons of a traditional slot machine, doesn’t have the layout of one in specific. It includes five separate reels and three rows, offering up a familiar interface for players to place wagers on. These reels are made up classic slot machine icons, so you’ll have access to imagery of grapes, cherries, lemons, watermelons, plums and oranges. In addition, you’ll find stars and 7s that are included alongside. Each of these icons are highly animated when incorporated into a winning combination, turning from their standard 2D form into a more 3-dimensional looking diamond incarnation of itself.
Alongside the reels and icons, Novomatic have integrated five separate pay lines into the game. These are fixed in place, although you’re able to alter the bet per line around. This starts off at its minimum of eight coins per line, and can be increased up to its maximum level of 200 coins per line. Therefore, all players have the opportunity of placing a maximum overall wager of 1000 coins per spin. An ‘Autoplay’ button is also included for speedy consecutive spins at the same wager level.
Shine Bright Like a Diamond Specials
The standard idea behind these games is obviously to match three or more of the same icon together on a winning pay line. Doing so, and playing at the maximum wager level, sees the number 7 act as the highest paying symbol. Managing to spin five of these on a pay line will reward you with a pay out of 1000000 coins!
The aforementioned star symbol works as this game’s scatter icon, and will therefore pay out wherever it appears on the reels. Should you manage to spin five of these across the interface, you’ll be rewarded with a maximum pay out of 50000 coins.
Novomatic also take much pleasure in installing a gamble feature into all their products as well. This particular game acts as no exception, and the side game is triggered at the end of every winning spin. After the win has been totalled, you’ll be given the opportunity to collect or gamble. The first option sees the winnings added to your balance as they are. The second option takes you to a card feature. This offers up a deck of playing cards to you, with a red and black button at either side. You need to select which colour you believe the next card to be turned over will be. Making a correct guess will see your winnings doubled, while making an incorrect guess sees you lose them all.
Precious Pieces of Fruit
There are plenty of classic slot games on the market today, and while Diamond 7 is not really considered such, it does have elements of one included in it, thanks to the icons. This game is by no means the greatest thing ever presented by the developer, but it’s also not tragically bad either. Instead, it hovers somewhere around the middle, offering up decent graphics and animations, as well as the ability to provide scatter pay outs.
