They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but, odds are, if you count among those lucky enough to be buying and wearing diamonds, they’re very much so your best friend. And if there’s one person who knows how to appreciate diamonds, it’s gamblers who play video slots. Red Diamond is a Red Tiger Gaming release launched in 2018, offering rather simplistic graphics that emulate being in front of a physical slot machine. The music is non-existent, save for some small noises the ‘machine’ makes when you spin it, and during a win. With an RTP of 96.19%, the title has an above average return to player.
Going beyond just graphics, it also tries to copy the gameplay of older titles by forgoing a lot of special features, and having a small, 3x3 playing field with only one active payline. The only bonus there is to talk about is the Wilds and their associated multipliers.
Play Red Diamond
As we mentioned already, there’s only one bonus involved here, although there are several levels of it. The first, and easiest, is a simple, blue gem, which acts as a Wild. Not a big deal when you have bigger reels, but on a 3x3 one with only one active payline at all times, having a Wild anywhere can be really helpful. The extra advantage comes from the fact you can also get green and red gems. Both of these gems also acts as Wilds, but the green one gives players 2x multiplier to all wins it is a part of, while red diamonds provide a 3x multiplier for all wins it is a part of. If you manage to draw three diamonds, youi don’t get any multipliers – instead, you receive a cash prize of 800x the bet, unless you manage to draw three red diamonds, which is the game’s jackpot, and is worth 1500x the wager.
How to Play
We’ll admit right away, this isn’t our kind of title. We like having more paylines and bigger playing fields, but for what it is, it’s a very solid title. The pays are quite well made, but we can’t help but wish there were some more features that could help break up the monotony of it all. However, that’s just our wishful thinking – its Wilds are currently quite powerful in securing jackpots.
You can wager between $0.10 up to $100 per spin, which is a rather wide range of bets that will allow all kinds of gamblers to find a wager that fits them and to commit to it. The largest jackpot you can win is 1500x the wager for a three-of-a-kind red diamond win.
Red Tiger Gaming also included an Autoplay option, through which you can set loss limits, win thresholds, as well as tell the game if you want it to stop auto-spins if a feature is activated or if you win a jackpot.
Strategy & Tips
While we’re all too keen to remind you to budget accordingly, we feel the lesson especially needs reinforcing here. Red Diamond can and will eat up your money in an instant if you get cocky, so make sure you can last with your current wager without any wins for a while.
There are no major differences between the mobile and desktop versions of this slot.
