Exploring the Glittering Gems
The glamorous theme of the game comes through in the imagery with all the symbols related to luxurious precious stones. There are red, green, purple, blue and gold stones with the diamond of the title being the gold or yellow diamond – a rare beauty in the world of gemology!
The background of the slot is dark blue with light blue stars while the reels themselves have a plain beige background which helps to highlight the colour in the gems even more. In addition to the golden diamond, here you can find a green emerald, red ruby, blue sapphire, and purple amethyst.
This game has five reels and 4 rows of symbols. There are 50 paylines in total which is a large number and makes hitting winning payouts that bit easier. You can also alter the number of paylines you want to play each spin by clicking the plus and minus buttons to choose from 1, 10, 20, 30 or all 50 paylines each spin. You can also change your bet per payline from a minimum of 0.01 to a max of 0.40, giving an overall maximum bet per spin of 20.00.
Payouts from the Precious Stones
The highest-paying gem in this game is the golden diamond of the game title. This symbol pays up to 400 c oins for hitting 5 matches on the reels at once. This is also the wild in the game, so it substitutes for the other symbols, except the free games symbol, to create more possible matches.
The gems to look for next are the red ruby and purple amethyst, which both pay up to 160 coins for 5 symbols. Next are the green emerald and the blue sapphire, which both pay up to 100 coins for 5 symbols. Finally, the high card symbols in this game pay the lowest rewards with up to 60 coins available if you hit 5 of the Ace or King symbols.
Free Games Round
The scatter symbol in the game is the Free Games symbol. This symbol pays up to 40 coins when you hit 3 of them anywhere on the reels, plus it activates the free spins round. When you hit 3 or more of these icons you are immediately credited with 5 free games.
Gambling on an Extra Win
There is another way to hit a big win playing Golden Diamond. This is by playing one of the two gamble games, which give you the chance to double up your winnings, receive another cash prize – or forfeit your winnings. After any winning spin you can choose to gamble by playing the 50/50 card game or the prize ladder game.
In the card game, you have to guess whether the next card will be red or black – guess right to double up or guess wrongly to lose your cash. In the ladder game, try to time your clicks to win the prize flashing on the highest rung – but click too late and you might leave with nothing!
A Bright and Shiny Game for Visual Appeal
Golden Diamond is a colourful and attractive game, which will appeal to many players looking for pleasant visuals. The wild symbols help to boost your winnings while the scatters can push your game to a new level with plenty of potential free spins.
There is no bonus round here to ring the changes, however, if you enjoy a gamble, the two gamble features available could provide lots of fun. Some players might miss the lack of bonus game and more involving music and when it comes to the crunch, the bright colours and luxury theme might not be enough for fans of more sophisticated slots play.
