Red Tiger Gaming is not exactly known for their mastery of the classic slot machine genre, yet they’re trying their hands at just that with Emerald Diamond, and they manage to do a pretty good job with it. The usual high-end graphics of their slots carry on to Emerald Diamond as well, so despite the classic fruit theme that’s employed, I found the result to be somewhat enjoyable.
There are more features inside than in a regular 3-reel slot, especially in ones with 1 line, like this one is. There are two types of wild symbols, along with multipliers. Wins of $500,000 are not out of the realm of possibility, since there is only one line and the slot pays up to 1,000x the stake.
Betting and Prizes
The only decision that you’re left with in Emerald Diamond will concern the game’s total stake. Since there is 1 line inside, the line bet and the total stake are one and the same. You can wager anywhere from a minimum of $0.20, to a maximum of $500, which is the standard betting range for Red Tiger Gaming titles.
Moving on to the part that’s actually enjoyable in a game, winning, the paytable indicates that it will pay up to 1,000x the stake to the player, in exchange for a winning combination with three symbols 2x Wild Respin. Given the size of the total bet, you get back up to $500,000 from this game. The RTP, which they’ve announced at 96.08%, is another good reason to play this classic title.
Emerald Diamond Slot Features
By far, the most important feature that you could get in this game is from the symbol that’s showing an Emerald Diamond in it. It’s helpful enough to include details like the 2x Wild logo, along with +Respin, so you can already figure out that it will double any wins that it is involved in, plus it will also trigger a free respin after that.
Though it’s a lot of fun to get it to contribute as a wild, the ideal situation is where you land three of these symbols, all of them on the same active line. You get the top jackpot of 1,000x that way.
The game also seems to have a secondary wild symbol, a simpler one that shows you the Blue Diamond symbol. That one is usable only as a substitute, so you don’t get the multiplier or the respin from it.
You might not be impressed with the wild features that the game delivers, but when you add the respins and the multipliers, you already have a lot more than you should expect from a slot with 3 reels. It’s a good spread of features.
Theme & Design
They didn’t put as much work into the theme of the slot, as they did into its features. The classic theme that was picked includes several diamond symbols for the major features, but other than that you’re looking at a red 7 that’s on fire, three Bar symbols that appear stacked, plus a pair of cherries. These are classic icons, but designed better than in the older games. You can tell that this is a modern design, especially since Red Tiger Gaming modified the way the paytable is displayed.
Emerald Diamond is not a revolutionary slot machine, but for a 3-reel classic it will offer some unusual wild features, and it’s worth checking out for that at least.
