The iSoftBet casino software team is well known for creating classically-styled slots that offer all the action and immersion of Video Slots to give players a taste of both worlds, and that’s what they’ve done with Diamond Wild. The design is simple and features traditional symbols, but there are 5 reels and 20 possible paylines rather than the 3 reels with 1 payline that original Slots games featured. There are also Bonus Games and Special Features in this entertainment, including a Progressive Jackpot.
Facts and Figures
Diamond Wild’s betting range is 0.01 to 20 meaning it will suit the bankroll of every player, though it should be noted that players will need to bet the maximum to qualify for a chance to win the Jackpot. The theoretical RTP is 95.17% for maximum wagers and 93.17% for anything less. A regular game top Jackpot is 2,500 coins, and players can also choose to practice in the Free Play mode until they feel confident enough in the game and themselves to make a bet. When they are ready to use some of their own money, they can get more action in or take care of other business as they spin with the convenient AutoPlay feature that turns the reels automatically.
Game Theme and Design
Diamond Wild really does have the look of an old-school 1-armed bandit game, with a simple game logo and payout table sitting above the reels and the inside of a Slots hall making up the backdrop. The brightly-coloured reel icons, set on a white background, are all inspired by classic symbols and include 1-, 2-, and 3-Bar images, Cherries, Red 7s, Dollar Signs and Bells. Having less symbols to spin is better for players, as it means they stand more chance of spinning a paying combination. The background music is a blend of classic land-based Slots, such as a lever being pulled back when the Spin button is clicked, and general online casino Australia sounds and an ocean-inspired melody. All wins are accented with celebratory tones as the payouts are added to the screen display of players’ totals.
Special Symbols and Features
The Diamond Wild symbol, which features the word Wild, can take the place of any regular reel symbol to create winning paylines. The only icons that the Wild cannot stand in for are the Free Games and Diamond Scatter Symbols. When 3 Free Games Symbols appear scattered anywhere across the reels, players are awarded 8 Free Games which are all subject to a 2x Multiplier.
The Diamond is the most valuable symbol, and in the game if 3 appear anywhere on the reels players receive a respectable payout. However, if 4 appear spinners will receive 5 times as much, and if 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9 appear players will receive the Progressive Jackpot funds allocated for their specific number of Diamonds if they have bet the maximum amount. These Diamonds can appear in both the base game and the Free Spins Bonus Round, which increases players’ chances of winning a Progressive Jackpot amount.
