Game of the Week – Wild Diamond Miner
Wild Diamond Miner is the latest 5-Reel online slot game from the Bovada family of real money online casinos. The game offers an unusual layout and prizes of up to 2,500x your initial bet. Let’s take a look at this game and the prizes available
Mine For Treasures With Wild Diamond Miner
Wild Diamond Miner is a new 5-Reel, 36 payline online slot game from the Bovada family of online casinos. The game has a 3-4-5-4-3 layout and a simple group of pay symbols. The lowest paying symbols are royals. You must make four of a kind or better to turn a profit on Royals.
The medium paying symbols are green and yellow gems. High-paying symbols include blue and purple games. The red gem is the highest paying symbol, paying 500 credit for five of a kind.
Tho turn a profit on most spins, you will need four of a kind or multiple line wins. There are a couple of other features that can help you pick up larger wins.
Wilds and Walking Wilds
The Wild symbol will replace everything except for the Walking Wild symbol. These can appear at random on any reel. Also, random symbols may be replaced with Wild symbols from time to time. Wilds come up fairly often, so you have a great chance to score some wins with these symbols.
The Dynamite symbol is the Walking Wild. When it lands, the wild expands to cover the entire reel. You’ll also get a multiplier starting at 1x. From this point, you will get free respins as the wild moves to the left. You can get up to five free respins. Also, random symbols can be replaced with Walking Wild symbols.
I was lucky enough to catch a Walking Wild symbol on Reel 5 early in my session. Later, I caught one on Reel 1. Finally, I got another on Reel 5. The last one landed me a win of 65x my bet. The Walking Wilds basically turned my session in a slight winner.
Wild Diamond Miner A Bit Lacking in Features
Most games that have a mining or treasure hunting theme often offer multiple bonus features and the chance to earn massive prizes. Wild Diamond Miner falls a bit short in this regard. The only real feature that the game offers is the Walking Wilds feature and it is a bit too random to be considered on par with bonus games from other games.
The reason is that the Walking Wilds feature can land on any reel. For example, I did land the Walking Wilds a third time, but it was on Reel 1. That gave me a single, non-winning spin. If I hadn’t landed the Walking Wild earlier in my session, I would have been upset at that “bonus game.”
Another thing to remember is that this game has an RTP of just 94%. That is below our preferred 95% RTP. Most games with an RTP under 95% tend to be on the tighter side and usually not worth your time. There are a few Rival slot games that are the exception to this rule.
This game offers stakes ranging from .38 to $180 per spin. We recommend that you stick with lower stake games to avoid some of the variances that will be inevitable for this game. You can find Wild Diamond Miner at Slots.LV, Ignition Casino, and all casinos in the Bovada family of online casinos. There is a practice version of this game available, so you can try the game for free to see whether the game is worth your time and money.
