Coming via Just For The Win, and available at Microgaming’s casinos, Deco Diamonds Deluxe is a game which surprises us. Despite its classic theme, it delivers excellent graphics and a fun soundtrack, using the Art Deco movement and time period for inspiration. It’s a sequel for another JFTW slot, which was released in 2018.
Deco Diamonds Deluxe will offer 5x3 reels, but there are only 9 active lines there, so the classic roots are showing immediately. It’s a game with high volatility, which offers a top prize of 1,000x ($50,000), while the RTP will go as high as 96.12%, depending on the selected bet options. Moving on to features, we discover the presence of the Nudge option, along with wilds, respins and Bonus Wheels (3 levels).
Deco Diamonds Deluxe Betting and Prizes
The base bet offered in Deco Diamonds Deluxe will allow you to spend between $0.10 and $50, for each spin. The game gives you 9 active lines in exchange, so the wager covers everything, there is no mention of a line bet.
If you choose to use the Boost button, then the Nudge feature is activated for all spins. On the other hand, you also have to pay an additional 50%, so the maximum bet becomes $75.
You get top payouts of up to 1,000x total stake ($50,000), and there are two ways for you to get there. One is to trigger the Bonus Wheel at the Diamond level, and to get the 1,000x top payout. The other is to have all 9 active lines covered with Game Logo symbols, since that will also result in a 1,000x jackpot.
Despite its average-sized payout (compared with slots that offer 5,000x or more), Deco Diamonds Deluxe is a high volatility option. Players tend to choose these games if there are huge top payouts to go after, or it’s not worth the roller coaster style experience.
Even with its high volatility, Deco Diamonds Deluxe has a 96.03% RTP for its base version, and a 96.12% RTP for when the Boost is active.
The wild symbol is part of the slot’s features, and you can use it as a replacement in winning combinations, when appearing next to regulars on the same line.
If 2+ wilds land, then you get a Respin, and there is an attempt to land more through this feature. Depending on how many you end up with, you can trigger a Bonus Wheel feature at the Silver, Gold or Diamond level (3, 4 or 5 triggering symbols).
Depending on the level of the Bonus Wheel, you can win up to 80x (Silver), 588x (Gold) or 1,000x (Diamond).
The Boost option, for which you pay extra, will allow you to Nudge the Deco Diamonds icon to the reels, when it’s just outside it.
Theme & Design
The theme by itself doesn’t sound like much. You’re looking at a game with classic symbols. What’s different is the inspiration for its overall design and decorations. The early 20th century Art Deco movement is glamorous, and in this case there is the right soundtrack to support it as well. I think you will enjoy the design of Deco Diamonds Deluxe, especially since it’s an improvement over the previous slot from the series as well.
On the list of symbols, Deco Diamonds Deluxe has the game logo, a diamond, a Seven, Bell, Melons, Lemons, Plums and the Cherries.
Deco Diamonds Deluxe does something right, it’s not a typical classic fruit slot where graphics and features are concerned. What it’s lacking is a bigger top payout, to go well with the slot’s very high volatility.
