Slot games have apparently been around since the late 19th century, and sometimes it is fun to revisit some of these earliest slots, which later began to use fruits and lucky symbols as the theme. Reel Diamonds is one such game from 1×2 Gaming, and it is actually an update on a previous Classic Fruits.
Given the theme, we can expect to see some of the usual visuals and symbols on the reels. Nevertheless, despite the classic theme, the developer has actually delivered a very good-looking and polished slot. The reels are set on a pleasant blue background with diamond chunks in the two bottom corners, while the reels themselves are bordered in gold, and are deep blue. The fruit symbols are quite well detailed, with lemons, cherries, watermelons, oranges, grapes and plums all showing up, while the lucky red 7 is there as well, while a bright and sparkly diamond is the video slot’s Wild. Gold and silver stars are the game’ Scatter symbol.
Reel Diamonds online slot has 5 reels and 3 rows with 10 paylines, where players will have to land three or more matching symbols on adjacent reels to create winning combinations, starting from the left-most reel. The Wild only lands on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, where it can substitute for other symbols to create winning combos, while it also expands to cover the entire reel when it lands. The silver stars can land anywhere on the reels, while the gold stars only appear on reels 1, 3 and 5. They can also provide good payouts – three of the gold stars will give you 100x while the silver stars can pay out from 25x to 500x of your bet.
The lucky 7 is the highest paying symbol, as it can award up to 500x of your stake. The melons and grapes follow at up to 5x the bet, while the cherries, lemons, oranges and plums are all worth up to 2x the bet.
The betting range for Reel Diamonds slot is from 0.10 coins up to 100 coins per spin. It is a medium volatility game with an RTP of 96%.
This is one of the best examples of a simple slot with not too many added features and bonuses. While this may put off some players, it helps provide a sense of nostalgia for earlier times, when this is exactly how video slots used to work. This is quite a decent effort from the developer, and will definitely give players a way to go back and relive fond memories through this Las Vegas Casino.
