The Maaax Diamonds series is getting one more slot machine, this time one that aims to give the player a sense of the winter holidays, making him enjoy that time more by playing something related. Gamomat didn’t do much to make the slot special, they just added snow and ice to the symbols, along with a Christmas themed image for the background.
The theme might be a classic fruit one, but the setup is fairly modern, involving 5 reels and 10 paylines. It’s going to offer huge payouts, even as high as 2,500x the stake for a single round. At the same time, it delivers expanding wilds as its only feature.
Betting and Prizes
A round in Maaax Diamonds will have either 5 or 10 active lines at its basis. You pick one of the two, and then you choose the amount that will go into it. It’s going to start from a minimum of $0.10 per line, so you spend at least $0.50 each spin to get the thing going. The upper limit is much higher, allowing you to wager $500 per line, or $5,000 total. A bigger line bet, of $1,000, is possible if you reduce the number of lines to 5.
The game has a payout of up to 2,500x the stake to give away in a single round. It can come from 5 wins of 500x the stake each, or from 10 wins of 250x the stake, depending on the wager placed on the 5/10 lines. The slot appears to allow for large wagers, so it’s going to be a favorite for high rollers.
Another good figure that we know about this game is the RTP. It’s at 96.07%, which means that it pays back to the player a fair amount of the money invested in it, though this is for the long run, not a single game session.
Maaax Diamonds: Christmas Edition Slot Features
The game does not deliver a lot of features, but the ones it does have will be good enough to make the action interesting.
A single feature symbol exists in Maaax Diamonds, and it takes the form of a Diamond. Showing up on the reels 2, 3 or 4, these are wild symbols which may act as replacements for all other types of symbols. They are also expanding wilds, so this means that they take over their reels if they appear on them. All winning combinations benefit from the presence of a wild on a reel.
As you can see, it’s a fairly short list of potential features for you to explore. You get at most three wild reels at the same time, and that should be quite useful if it does happen.
Theme & Design
The original theme was one that focused only on diamonds and on other classic symbols, so you’d get the red 7, the Bar logos, bells and various fruits, ranging from lemons, to oranges, watermelons and cherries. Since they’re trying hard to give us a Christmas themed design, they added snow at the top of many of these symbols and ice hanging from some. They did better work in the background image, where they used the image of Christmas trees, decorations and gifts.
If Christmas is near, then this version of Maaax Diamonds should be interesting, but otherwise it doesn’t offer much and it’s best suited to players which prefer simple gameplay.
