The latest release offered for the Microgaming Quickfire software was designed by the developers from Rabcat, a small company that seems to be doing a rather good job with the few games that it created so far. The theme of Frozen Diamonds slot is one that is not very impressive unfortunately, focusing on gemstones or poker cards which are frozen in ice, but at least they managed to offer a good design with it. A wild symbol and a falls system constitute the only major features mentioned in this game. Frozen Diamonds has 5 reels, plus a total of 20 lines on them, through which you can win 1,000 coins at most.
Betting and Prizes
You don’t have the option to modify what the number of lines will be, but at least you can change the stake per line as you need to. The minimum bet will probably be at $0.20, where the stake per line is at $0.01. It can only go up from there.
As for the prizes, there are two different symbols which can offer 1,000 coins if they form a combo of five matching icons. The actual value of the prize depends on the line stake that was used, which is also the coin value. It feels like a small prize though, especially since the game has lines and not ways to win.
Frozen Diamonds Slot Features
For those looking for regular features, the wild symbol would be the one to check out in this case. It’s going to be a simple symbol, with a Wild logo placed on it, which will have that ability to substitute for another symbol and will also be capable of landing multiple times on the same line, forming its own paying combo when that happens. It is one of the two symbols that are capable of paying 1,000 coins, the best prize of the slot.
The Falls system comes by different names in the games that use it, each developer having its own trademarked name for it apparently. It’s the system which removes symbols of the winning combinations from the reels, so that other symbols can land on the empty spots, in the hopes of forming some new combination and continuing the cycle.
If you manage to get four falls in a row, from the same spin, you will trigger the free spins. There are two options here, with 5 or 10 rounds, and one will be chosen at random. While using the free spins, the first free fall will get a couple of wilds on the 3rd reel. The second bonus fall win will bring one additional free spin, a multiplier of 2x and three wilds for the 3rd reel.
Theme & Design
I’ve seen better designs from this developer, and the choice of theme is not very inspired either. You basically have blocks of ice, which get a gemstone or a poker card inside. The blocks will arrange themselves on the reels, one on top of each other.
Frozen Diamonds doesn’t have the right theme and design to become a great slot machine, but you can at least have some fun with it, if you focus on its bonus falls feature.
