Diamond Dreams Slot
This slot will appeal to those who like traditional 3 reel slot games where the focus is entirely on lining up the winning combinations. There is no bonus game, no break out screens and nothing interesting or dynamic in the game play. The main reason to play is to try for the 1000 coin top prize, and to enjoy the type of gaming which made the slots genre popular in the first place. If you’re a fan of IGT slots, you’ll notice immediately that this game looks a lot like Da Vinci’s Diamonds.
Many aspects of this 3 reel online slot have been produced to make it look like an old electro mechanical game. This includes the ‘kink’ in the middle, which makes it look like you are viewing a real cabinet – there are even the corners of adjacent slots on show.
The coloring is a vivid purple, and you can’t miss the huge diamond logo on the top right. Diamonds continue to run along the top of the slot underneath the pay table. The reels are shown at an angle, they manage to look slightly curved – though not as effectively as on many 3 reel online slots. Beside the reels you can see the numbers 1 through 5 which represent the 5 win lines for this game. To the right of this are graphics showing a slot where you would put your bills and below that another one for your coins. The control buttons are underneath with your coins of betting one, spinning or betting max (which is 5 coins). To the left of the reels you will find an old LED type display which shows your current credits, the most recent payout and the amount you bet. Your coin size is displayed in a red square below this.
How to Win on Diamond Dreams
Like most 3 reel slot games, an incentive is put in place to encourage you to bet the maximum number of coins. If you bet the maximum 5 coins per line and hit the biggest prize of 3 diamonds on any of the win-lines, then you will get 1000 coins. If you bet any lower number, then this prize is 750 coins. What you will find is that this makes a statistically significant difference to the RPT (return to player) percentage for this game. The best strategy is to play maximum coins, and lower the size of each coin to suit your bankroll.
As well as having the top prize, the diamond acts as a wild symbol. This will substitute for any of the other symbols on any line to create more wins – though does not have a payout of its own.
The next prize is for 3 of the red sevens (100 coins), then 3 of the bells (50 coins), 3 cherries (25) – followed by the 3, 2 and 1 bar symbols (20, 10 and 5 coins respectively). There is one more prize, which is 3 coins for a seven, bell and cherry on a win-line.
Diamond Dreams – Overall Experience
With no bonus games or extra features, this slot really is all about lining up the winning symbols. If you are more used to the amazing 3D slots created by BetSoft, it could come as a surprise that this game is even made by the same people. Straightforward 3 lines slot games still have their fans, and this is a great example of a game which is made just for that kind of player.
