Even though Diamond Wild is a five reel online slot with twenty pay lines, it is a classic slot game in the tradition of the old fashioned one-armed- bandit. It is tons of fun to play and takes me back to the days where we actually had to pull the arm of the bandit in order to win. Just as an aside, do you know why they were called “one-armed-bandits?” Because these games were so compelling to play, that sometimes people felt robbed when they did not win, and they would say, that one armed bandit just robbed me. This game is typical of those very same machines.
The coin bet range is €0.01 up to €1.00, and a maximum of ten coins per line. That can add up to quite a bit of money on a maximum wager, but Diamond Wild can also be played for free in fun mode, and also for a very cost effective wager.
It is not unusual for diamonds to feature as the top prize winners in slot machines, the diamonds in this game are both normal icons and wild. When three land on one pay line, the win is doubled. When four land on the pay line, winnings are multiplied by five, and five diamond icons down will land the big prize. Not only that though on this diamond themed game, prizes are also won for five and upwards diamonds appearing on any of the reels during the same spin.
Other symbols include single, double and triple bars, as well as our favourite “cherries”, 7’s, dollar signs, and bells which we also don’t see very often these days. Just by the way, there is also a “Free Games” icon, which offers the winner eight free spins.
There is very little strategy required in playing a one-armed-bandit, and playing online involves nothing more than pointing and clicking a mouse. There is no science to winning on slots, the aim of the game is to have a good time.
Unfortunately there is also no specific bonus features on this slot, however, we suppose that the free spins, during the Free Game could be considered to be a bonus. It all depends on how you look at the world, is your glass empty or half full? I got into the Free Game and won €196.00, which was not bad going in the greater scheme of things.
