Diamond Inferno Slot Review
A brand new slot is expected to be released by Triple Edge Studios, a Microgaming partner and supplier of exclusive games for their platform. Soon available at hundreds of Microgaming online casinos, Diamond Inferno is a game with a classic vibe, but with a mix of features that’s as good as anything that you can expect from a modern release.
Diamond Inferno gets 5x3 reels with 20 active lines, along with the possibility to expand the game area up to 5x6 reels with 50 active lines. Wild symbols, re-spins, scatters and multipliers, it’s a great collection of features, and the potential is excellent thanks to them. This game, even though it has Medium volatility, can pay up to 11,750x the stake, impressive by any standards. RTP is also good, at the 96.19% that we’ve seen mentioned in its case.
Diamond Inferno Betting and Prizes
$0.20 is the starting point of the betting range, which allows for $0.01 line bets. $20 is the highest point that it can reach, in which case the line bet reaches $1.
What’s most impressive about Diamond Inferno, is the top jackpot that the game can deliver, as a result of a single spin. 11,750x the stake is the figure that’s been quoted, the type of jackpot that very volatile slots tend to be able to pay. What’s going to surprise here, is that the game is considered to be only Medium in terms of volatility, so the risk is not as high as expected.
A 32.10% hit frequency means that about one in three rounds will be a winner. 96.19% is the RTP that’s been announced for Diamond Inferno.
The game area should be mentioned first, as it doesn’t work quite the way you’d expect it to, since it’s a classic in some ways. You get started with 5x3 reels & 20 lines, which is a very common layout. However, as the game triggers its re-spins, you gain additional rows of symbols and 10 new lines, so after several rounds where wins keep coming, you get up to 5x6 reels and 50 active paylines.
The re-spins will trigger after any winning combo, and they will stop once there are no more new wins.
Once you get to the maximum size of the game area, you start getting higher multipliers instead. You go to 2x, 3x, 5x and 10x multipliers, which apply only to the re-spins where they are active.
Wilds are going to be of help when you’re trying to form combinations and trigger the re-spins, particularly since they can also land stacked. Only the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels may get these wilds.
One other feature symbol exists, a scatter which the game uses to trigger cash prizes. It is present on the middle three reels, and all three are needed, to get you a reward. Depending on the row where it appears, each scatter brings you a prize, between 1x and 20x the stake. Get all three scatters on the 6th row, during re-spins, to get paid 60x the stake.
Theme & Design
There isn’t anything too interesting theme or design wise. It’s an older type of design, which just as easily could’ve been copied from a 90s game, involving classic symbols and a lot of flames surrounding the reels. As symbols, you will discover a Wild Logo, Lucky 7s, Stars, Dollar Signs, Gold Bars, Dice and differently colored Royals.
Diamond Inferno is a good game overall, but it’s all due to the way it plays and pays, nothing to do with the graphics unfortunately. Still, its important bases are all covered, and it’s worth looking into.
