Game of the Week – Diamond Dragon
If you like fantasy slot games, then you should check out Diamond Dragon. It is a 5-Reel, 50 payline slot game from Rival. It features a fantasy theme featuring dragons and warriors. It may even remind you of a certain popular fantasy series that had a letdown of an ending.
Let’s take a look at this game, its features, and the prizes you can win.
Tame the Dragon for Some Big Wins
Diamond Dragon is a 5-Reel, 50 payline slot game from Rival. The game is a fantasy-themed game and has a Game of Thrones feel to it. It is likely a bit of a knockoff of the HBO series. The symbols include Royals and members of rival families.
This game allows you to customize the number of lines, coins, and the coin value for each spin. You can play from 1 to 10 coins and from 1 to 50 lines. Coin values range from .01 to .25. As such, you can play from as little as .50 per spin up to $125 per spin.
Most of the symbols are lower-paying on three of a kind, meaning you have to hit multiple line wins to have a shot of turning a profit on a spin. The Dragon is the Wild in this game and when it hit, it expands to the entire reel. In the normal game, it can hit on the first two reels only.
There are a couple of bonus features that will help you score some big wins. Let’s take a look at them.
Diamond Dragon Free Spins Round
The Golden Axe is the scatter for this game and when three or more land on the screen, you’ll trigger the free spins game. You get 10 free spins for 3 scatters, 20 for four scatters, and 50 free spins for five scatters. When the Dragon wild lands during these spins, you’ll get a 2x multiplier on those wins. They can land on Reels 1 through 3.
I was able to hit the Bonus Round relatively quickly and received 10 free spins. I ultimately won about 24x my initial bet. Not too bad.
The Silver Axe is the second scatter that will trigger the Super Round. Three or more Super Icons will trigger the Super Round and you’ll get 5 Super Round Spins. During this round, dragons can appear on the first four reels and award a 3x multiplier.
I was not lucky enough to trigger this round, but it has a lot of potential.
Diamond Pick Bonus
The Diamond symbol is a non-paying symbol unless you are lucky enough to land three on board. When this happens, you unlock the Diamond Pick Bonus. You will be presented with Diamond icons on Reels 1, 3, and 5 and you will pick one. Each Diamond will have a coin prize.
Pick a Diamond and receive a prize. The prize range is not revealed in the game details. Also, I was not lucky enough to unlock this feature.
The Diamond Dragon May Be Tough to Tame
I have mixed feelings about Diamond Dragon. The gameplay is somewhat bland with very little action or animation of characters. The music is also somewhat generic. However, I turned a nice profit in the first couple of sessions played. This is despite the game having a lower than average RTP of 94.8%. Due to this, expect the volatility of the slot game to be higher than the most games.
Besides the bonus features, the best part of this game is that you can customize your betting. You can bet as little as much as you want. This allows low rollers the chance to stretch their online casino deposits. Diamond Dragon is available at Golden Lion Casino and all legitimate real money online casinos offering Rival gaming products.
