Diamond Deal by Microgaming is an unorthodox game, it looks and plays like a classic 3-reel pokie, but has added features such as a wild symbol and a bonus round. Its a game designed for the purist, with classic Bar and Lucky 7 symbols but who nevertheless likes the variety that a bonus feature and wild symbol brings.
Diamond Deal is a 3-reel, 1 payline classic pokie, with a fixed coin size of $1 and where wins pay left to right. Between 1x – 3x coins can be played per spin, so the bet size ranges from $1 – $3. However, it’s important to note that the bonus feature and largest jackpot can only be accessed when betting the maximum.
The jewellery case bonus feature is accessed when a jewellery box symbol appears on reel 3 four times (after which a segment of the diamond on the paytable becomes illuminated). Players select one of five jewellery cases on a separate screen, which contain either three ($50), two ($200) or one ($300) diamonds. After playing the bonus feature, the illuminated diamond re-sets and it can be accessed again (note that the max bet needs to be played to access the bonus round).
The largest jackpot available during base play is $3,000, won when you hit 3x diamond symbols when playing the maximum number of coins (3x). Hitting 3x diamond symbols when playing 2x coins wins $1,000 and $500 when 1x coin is played. The maximum jackpot in the jewellery case bonus feature is $300.
What makes this game unusual is its combination of classic pokie gaming action with a wild symbol and bonus feature. The bonus round is intentionally uncomplicated and does interrupt the flow of the game. While Diamond Deal might not necessarily be appealing to a younger player brought up on more flashy video pokies, this is a game with straightforward game play, good-size payouts, but the wild and bonus feature add an extra dimension that makes it stand out from most other classic 3-reel pokies.
This is a similar pokie to 7 Ocean’s – it’s a game which pays out relatively small amounts compared to the blockbuster video slots, but its the prefect game if you’re looking for a game which regularly pays allowing you to stretch your bankroll
