Diamond Strike is a video slot created by Pragmatic Play. For its theme, it pretends to actually be a classic version of a slot. Yes, complete with the distant sounds of physical machines spinning and bland symbol choices! And yet, the game can’t help but dip into the modern world for its gorgeous graphics and the occasional special feature. Jackpot bonuses and theoretically unlimited free spins wait.
We’re not huge fans of slots made to look like the fruit machines of old. And yet, you can tell Pragmatic Play’s artists did their best to make it look awesome. Small strings of lightning can be seen around winning icons. More valuable symbols will even perform a little twirl for the player’s amusement! We’re certain that the fans of this theme will be quite pleased with this release!
Play Diamond Strikes
There’s no split between high and low-value icons, as there aren’t many, to begin with! There are seven in total, from most to least valuable. The diamond, then the lucky seven, the golden bell, cherries, watermelons, plums and lemons can all be found on the reels. Golden versions of the lucky seven activate the jackpot special feature, while Scatter triggers free spins.
How to Play
The game is played on a 5x3 board with 15 fixed paylines. The layout is the same one Pragmatic Play has used a countless number of times in their releases! As such, it should be immediately familiar to anyone who’s played any of their slots before.
The Spin button is shaped like the developers’ own logo and looks quite distinct. Right beneath it is the Autoplay button, which gives you lots of settings to choose from! To the left and right of the Spin button are the minus and plus. Clicking these buttons allows you to adjust your total bet to your liking by changing coins per line and coin value. You can stake between $0.15 and $75 per spin.
Collect three or more identical symbols in adjacent positions from left to right to win a cash prize! Said winning combination must follow one of the 15 active paylines. Scatters and golden lucky sevens are exempt from this rule and pay from any position.
Strategy & Tips
Collect three golden lucky sevens in any position to win the Jackpot bonus! You are taken to a separate 5x4 playing field, full of diamonds. Each time you select a diamond, its colour changes. Match three diamonds of the same colour to win the corresponding jackpot. The jackpots are as follows:
- Blue: Mini, worth 10x
- Green: Minor, worth 30x
- Red: Major, worth 100x
- Pink: Mega, worth 1000x.
Find three Scatters on the first, third and fifth reel at the same time to win eight free spins. If you do this while the extra turns are already being played, you get eight more free spins! There’s no limit on how many times you can do this!
There aren’t many differences between the desktop and mobile versions of Diamond Strike. The only one we noticed is the difference in the layout but that’s about it.
