All41 Studios, an independent game provider working with Microgaming, has followed up on their popular Gold Collector slot with this deluxe Diamond Edition release. The fancy pants!
Fans of mining-themed slots will enjoy this 5-reel game with many of the same visual features are the initial release. With some great bonus features involving dynamite, of course, and plenty of sparkly diamonds, you could get lucky with some lucrative payouts.
The game mechanics and winning potential is where All41 Studios has upped the ante here, with a payout up to 5,200x the stake. That’s up there with the Dynamite Riches Megaways slot, another mining game, this time from Red Tiger.
Alongside the Free Spins round, All41 Studios have included a Link&Win feature that offers gamers the potential of 6 jackpots to land. This Gold Collector upgrade has the potential to land some great wins alongside sharp visuals and great gameplay.
This is another great Microgaming partnership game like Royal League Spin City Lux (that one’s from Gong Gaming).
Gold Collector Diamond Edition Game Background
The visual features are all about the goldmine setting. They are identical to the original slot.
A simple background is in play with a cartoon-style brown mine interior.
Some colour is injected into the background with some bright gold nuggets strewn across the bottom of the screen. And the symbols on the grid and text provide a change from the brown and black colour scheme.
A wooden board above each reel in play links to the jackpots in play, placed across the left of the grid. The Mini, Minor, Maxi, Major and Grand jackpots and their returns are displayed on wooden boards to the left of the screen.
All41 Studios have added a Diamond jackpot offering a tempting 5,000x the stake to the top-left of the screen.
The grid of play is made up of 5-reels and 4-rows along which you can land winning combinations for a payout and access the bonus features.
On a bar on the right side of the screen are the game settings button, screen view feature, large golden spin button, and bet stakes option button.
Gold Collector Diamond Edition Gameplay
There are 50 paylines in use in the Gold Collector Diamond Edition slot with a range of bet stakes from 0.10 to 50.00. There’s something for everyone in other words.
All41 have gone for the classical low value 10 – A of card symbols as the low payers. You can score better returns with the mining equipment symbols: the spade, pickaxe, oil lamp and gold-filled mine cart symbols. The greatest main game symbol is the old prospector: landing 5 of these will payout 15x the stake.
There are also bonus symbols in play including a diamond Link&Win symbol, a Wild symbol, a dynamite Scatter and a golden Special coin that access bonus features in play.
Gold Collector Diamond Edition Bonus Features
The bonus Wild, Scatter and Special symbols will not reward payouts if they drop across a payline however they will introduce some great bonus features. The Link&Win diamond symbol will trigger the x5000x jackpot if 5 symbols land in a single spin.
To access the Free Spins feature, you need to land 3 of the Scatter symbols across the middle 3-reels. When the bonus is triggered, the reels are filled with rocks which are exploded by barrels of dynamite to reveal gold or diamond symbols with cash values attached—land additional diamond symbols for an extra spin. Remember that 5 diamonds pay out the jackpot.
Dynamite barrels can land on reels with no rocks. If that happens, a plunger will appear to blow up 2-5 rocks revealing gold or diamond symbols. If all of the stones on a reel explode, a specific jackpot is triggered; these include:
Reel 1 – Mini Jackpot worth 10x the stake.
Reel 2 – Minor Jackpot worth 20x the stake.
Reel 3 – Maxi Jackpot worth 50x the stake.
Reel 4 – Major Jackpot worth 100x the stake.
Reel 5 – Grand Jackpot worth 1,000x the stake.
All41 Studios have included the popular Link&Win mechanic to play here that is triggered when 3 gold or diamond symbols drop during the main game. During this feature only blank spaces, gold or diamond symbols will drop and each reel begins with 3 respins that reset if a gold or diamond symbol drops.
The feature ends when all of the reel’s respin count hits 0 or if the entire grid is filled with gold and diamond symbols, resulting in some impressive payouts. A diamond on each of the 5-reels will award the 5,000x jackpot whilst diamond and gold symbols across the reels pays out the same jackpot as the Free Spins.
Gold Collector Diamond Edition Summary
Good job All41 Studios! The Gold Collector Diamond Edition slot is great entertainment with multiple jackpots to play for. The visual features might be the same as the original but the gameplay is very different. There are decent payouts on offer in both the main game and Free Spins, so this game should prove a hit I reckon.
