Whilst this wombat doesn’t crave the limelight and glitz, I have to admit that my furry interest was piqued with Vegas Diamonds, the swanky new slot from those masters of bonus extras Elk Studios, entered the slot-o-sphere.
Prepare your high kicking legs (low kicking in my case) and jazz hands and enter the world of Las Vegas in a fruit machine style slot created in celebration of sin city’s bright lights and brash fun. 3 reel slots seem all the rage at the moment with the Fiddle Dee Dough slot and other all pulling in the punters. Looks like we are going back to the future!
Look and feel
Feel yourself transported to Vegas, as the reels are set again the skyline of some of the city’s most recognisable landmarks. There are enough illuminated lights, casinos and general spangly stuff to have even the most home loving of beasts itching to grab a passport, and board the first flight to the home of gambling- that big casino town in the desert. There are diamonds of course- not as many as you’ll see in the Rebets Splendour slot, but they are rather important in this game. We explain in more detail below.
There’s a useful panel above the reels where you can enjoy a touristic trail of scenic landmarks or see the value of your wins displayed.
Prepare yourself for the some seriously perky jazzy musak designed to up the cheesy vibe of the game! I love it! I thought I was in the lift in Caesar’s Palace for a second there…
Vegas Diamond is laid out over a grid of 3 rows and 3 reels and is playable and good lookin’ across your pc or mobile devices like all of our Elk slots.
The reels are populated with symbols that are the familiar faces of fruit machine games with mega lucrative treble, double and single BAR symbols, alongside melon, cherries and lemons. Just like the Strolling Staxx slot in other words but wiith 3 reels instead of two!
The most valuable icon on the reels is the Vegas Diamond symbol which is a megawatt diamond. Land 3 of these on an active pay-line and earn up x30 your wager!
Keep your peepers open for the rewarding multiplier Wilds that show up on reels 1 and 3 as these colourful symbols display a value between x2 and x5.
There’s also a colourful rainbow bonus icon that is the way to unlock the big bonus wheel of fortune.
Perfect Match Re-spins is a nice little cash maker of a bonus. If your lucky stars are shining on you, and you can get a match of the icons on reels one and two, you get three free spins. During these the first two reels are locked in place and the third reel spinning solo to try to make you some chunky cash prizes.
Vegas Diamond Nudge
Land three of the mammoth Vegas Diamonds anywhere on the reels and this unlocks a special nudge feature. Now the reels try to push the diamonds onto the middle row to make a crazy valuable winning line. And, just think of how this could work with the Perfect Match Re-spins- you could get a trio of tries to make it all happen for you!
The great big shiny bonus is the Vegas Diamond Wheel of Fortune feature. Land three of the bonus icons and you’ll come to a wheel of fortune that comes with a trio of levels bronze, silver and gold. You’ll get three spins.
On the wheel itself look out for an arrow up icon, land this and you get catapulted straight into the next wheel level – a nice little shortcut to the bigger prizes. There’s also a valuable x 5 multiplier symbol that’s a good earner if you can land it, and a Free Spins icon that packs a punch gifting you five free spins.
To max out your big win potential you need to progress through each level to reach the next and, you guessed it, each level offer bigger prizes. At the gold level you could make a win worth a 1,000 your stake.
Some slot lovers like a game plan and if this is you, you might want to tangle with this game’s Betting Strategy feature that allows you to plan your bets to match your game. Are you in need of an Optimizer, Leveller, Booster or a Jumper? So many choices, I may have to have a lie down to think about that!
I loved the virtual Vegas holiday that comes with Vegas Diamond and ELK have delivered on the bonus elements too. This slot is jam packed with money making extras. I loved the Wheel of Fortune with that 1,000 your wager potential. Beyond that though, this Wombat loved the nudge feature that can be twinned with the perfect match re-spins to make for a profitable partnership. Sin City, you got me again!
