Lucky Diamonds is another classic style, retro online slot release from Play ‘n Go. Play ‘n Go is a Swedish software developer with almost 20 years of experience in the industry, having been established in the late 1990’s. The company first operated under a few larger software providers, after which they became dependent in 2005.
Play ‘n Go continues to operate as an independent developer today, creating online slots and casino games for the iGaming market. The developer is also known for their classic 3 reel slot releases like Lucky Diamonds, a gem-themed slot game with 3 reels and just 1 payline.
Graphics, Theme and Slot Design
Lucky Diamonds has been designed to look just like a traditional land-based slot machine game. The reels spin against a striped blue background and a simple interface, with a large pink and blue Lucky Diamonds logo positioned above the reel set.
Diamonds, cherries and bars all make their appearances on the reels, and there is a colourful pay chart to the right of the game screen to inform players of how much each symbol combination is worth. Any winning combinations will be illuminated on this pay chart during the game, and an area below the reels will also inform players of their most recent win. Land-based casino sound effects add to the overall feel of Lucky Diamonds.
Reel Symbols and Higher Payouts
The reels of Play ‘n Go’s Lucky Diamonds slot contain symbols of red sevens, cherries, and single, double and triple bars. There are also diamonds on the reels in accordance with the theme, and these diamonds are the most valuable symbols in the game.
Next most valuable are the red sevens, which award up to 240 coins for 3 on a line when playing the game at maximum bet. This payout is reduced to 160 coins when playing at 2 coins per spin, and 80 coins when playing at 1 coin per spin.
Triple bars will award a payout of up to 120 coins for 3 of a kind, and cherries in any position will also award their own payout, as will mixed bar symbols. Lower payouts include up to 75 coins for double bar symbols, and up to 30 coins for 3 cherries on the reels.
Diamond Wild Symbol and Multipliers
As well as being the highest paying symbol in Lucky Diamonds, the diamond symbol also acts as a wild symbol throughout the game. The purpose of this wild symbol is to substitute for any other symbols on the reels, filling in to help create extra winning combinations.
The diamond wild symbol also acts as a multiplier symbol, and this feature comes into play whenever a wild forms a part of a winning combination. Landing 1 wild symbol in a matching combination will double the value of that win, and landing 2 wilds in a matching combination will quadruple its value.
When 3 of a kind appear on the game’s payline, the diamond wild will also award a fixed jackpot of up to 2,500 coins when playing Lucky Diamonds at maximum bet.
