Diamond Strike is one of those games where you’re getting a classic theme and a mix of modern features. The combination isn’t one that I find particularly appealing, but a game that pays well is still worth playing, no matter what kind of theme it sports. Diamond Strike was created by Pragmatic Play.
In Diamond Strike, the player has a standard 5 reel layout, 3 symbols on each one, with a total of 15 fixed bet lines activated. There are four fixed jackpots to go after, with values of up to $75,000, while regular combinations can pay $1,500. As features, you get wilds, free spins, the Jackpot Bonus game and scatters.
Betting and Prizes
Pretty much all the Pragmatic Play slots that I’ve tried so far have used wagers of up to 10 coins per line, with denominations getting to $0.50. With 15 lines available in this case, the complete range for the bet is from $0.15 to $75 (150 coins).
The really impressive reward to go after is the Mega Jackpot, with a top value of $75,000. The slot’s regular combinations offer at most $1,500. The average RTP is still very good though, being announced at 96.48%.
Diamond Strike Features
One of the symbols that I suggest you keep an eye on is the Diamond. Diamond symbols are considered wilds and they are used to substitute for others, as long as we’re not talking about any of the bonus or scatter symbols. These are also the symbols which can form the best paying combinations, with up to $1,500 to offer.
If you’re after the biggest prizes of Diamond Strike, then it’s the Golden 7 symbol that you want to see appear three times in any position on the reels. Once inside the bonus game, there are 12 diamonds displayed, and you have to pick from them until you get 3 of the same type. Depending on the logo of the diamond, you will get the Mini, Minor, Major or Mega Jackpot.
There is a second scatter symbol that the game uses to trigger the free spins. It’s got a simple Free Spins logo, and having three on the 1st, 3rd and 5th wheels will get you 8 free games. You can retrigger the free games for as many times as your luck holds, each time requiring another set of three scatters. The free spins will have special reels for you to use. Additional Diamond symbols are placed on the reels during the free spins.
Theme & Design
I’ve mentioned it before, this is not the sort of game that will use its theme or its graphics to get the player’s attention. It’s got only classic symbols inside, the sort of images that you’re probably tired of, at least if you’ve played slot machines for a longer length of time. The images selected for those reels will give you a logo for the scatter, a Diamond for the wild, a Golden 7 for the bonus game, and then we’re looking at the regular symbols, which have fire 7s, golden bells, cherries, the watermelon, plums and lemons.
I’m personally not a fan of Diamond Strike, but I can’t argue with its huge fixed jackpots either, so it might be worth trying out if you believe in your luck.
