The wombat says: Let’s take it down a notch shall we wombat fans? Nowadays, 5 reelers like the Wild Bazaar slot, Jumanji and Moby Dicks are so full of bells and whistles it can be hard to find a game with simple honest game-play, which is why this wombat is pleased to have come across the Diamond Empire slot… Let’s take a look!
Look and Feel
Set on a backdrop of some rather nice looking 1930s art deco graphics the slot is designed simply and comes with a plinky plonky jazz soundtrack. It’s quite relaxing. If you want stress and the latest technical gizmos, head for the Crystal Rift slot, otherwise slip your party pants on and let’s do some Diamond!
Diamond Empire Slot Game Play
The Diamond Empire slot is a 3 reel, 3 row and 15 pay-line game from Microgaming in partnership with Triple Edge Studios.
That’s right, 3 reels! Now, we don’t know about you, but this wombat hasn’t seen a 3 reeler for quite some time as in slot terms, they’re positively prehistoric! But let’s not judge, as sometimes basic is best. Diamond Strike roulette is good isn’t it? That’s a classic game with diamonds in it!
Bets in Diamond Empire slot start from £0.15 and go up to £15 per spin, and as you’d expect from a 3-reel slot the gameplay is pretty nostalgic – the kind of classic game that you might have seen in a bricks and mortar casino a few years back.
Your symbols on the reels also take their inspiration from these traditional fruit machines and include the bars, the cherries, and the red 7s. The highest paying icon on the screen is the lucky red seven, that will pay out 33x your bet if you manage to land 5x of them in a row.
You’ll also see Wombat fans that the eponymous diamonds will also land on the reels from time to time. These will act as the Wild symbol in this slot, substituting for all other symbols on the reels except for the Scatter to make more winning combos for you.
But that’s not all! It will also act as a handy little win multplier. Yes, the cheeky diamond gives you a x2 payout when it appears as a single wild, and by x4 when it lands stacked with 2 of them. Hurrah!
The Scatter symbol here is the icon that has bonus written on it. Land 3x of them art deco style symbols and you’ll trigger off the bonus game.
Free Spins and Bonus features
Once you’ve set off this round, you’ll be taken to a new screen where you’ll see a big shiny Wheel of Fortune. The aim of the game here is very simple: click on the arrow to stop the spinner at random and wherever it lands you’ll be awarded a win multiplier that could go up to a whopping 888x your initial base game bet!
If you want a game that doesn’t offer you a million extra features,then you could do a lot worse than Empire Diamond slot. It’s a high variance game which might put some of you slot fans off, but if you’re prepared to play the long haul waiting game, you will be almost guaranteed to scoop up large pays from the Bonus Wheel. And who can argue with that? Not us!
