Diamond Mine Megaways
Mining a rich seam.
Knowing your pick axe from your cactus is a good start in this good ol’ Wild West prospecting game: the Diamond Mine Megaways slot.
Blueprint Gaming – those rocket scientists behind games like the Fishin’ Frenzy slot and Ted- have created a game that’s a winner for those of you who have always wanted to try their luck at hitting the big time by mining your own gems way out West!
But watch out – this is a slot for those of you who like their slot play on the volatile side with this Megaways offering. And there are features galore here when you compare it to a traditional game like the Fluffy Too slot or even Bar Bar Black sheep.
Those designers have gone feature mad!
Diamond Mine Megaways Look and Feel
The reels are set against a rugged red mountain with cacti framing the action on the reels. The whole vibe is all about the wild frontier and its characters trying to eke out a life against the elements- and hoping for some big diamonds and big bucks along the way!
The soundtrack is as good as you’d expect, with twanging strings and good ole’ music of the Southern US States, this makes for a lively background to your slot spin. It’s right up there with other Blueprint classics like the Magic Ian slot machine and King Kong cash.
Diamond Mine Game Play
And the Diamond Mine slot turns the table on the usual slot games creating a crackers six reels and seven rows too- but some of the icons are bigger than others making for a bit of a visual treat.
And then there’s the ways to win- these are a mind bending 117649– that’s so high that I might need a quick bourbon to make sense of it all!
The icons are joyfully straight out of the Wild West playbook, with a huge sparkling diamond (land 6 on a pay-line and earn a tasty x 50 treat), a white bearded gnarly miner, a hurricane lamp and a pair of crossed pickaxes. The lower value icons are the Ace through 9 of the card deck in colourful old fashioned lettering.
The game’s Wild is a worryingly lit bunch of dynamite which confines itself to that odd top row of the slot and which substitutes for all icons except the Scatter – which is an overflowing bag of gold.
There’s an explosive mystery symbol to look out for and that’s a big barrel of TNT! While this sounds deadly it’s actually a bit of a gift because it lands at random in both the base and bonus landing and transforming into other icons to help you to make wining combos- in that case, let the fireworks begin!
After a winning combo the winning line crumbles, cascading to reveal a new line of icons.
Frontier Free Spins
Now you’ve got yourself ready to dig deep and unearth some riches by landing four Scatters across the reels, unlocking a generous 12 free spins- if you’re feeling lucky and land further Scatters in this mode then each one will gift you a further 5 spins. Kerching!
Did I mention the endless multiplier- tee hee, I did right? Well during the free spins game you earn a x1 multiplier each time you win and cause a cascade of icons to fall- and this can just keep going if you’re on a winning streak- now that’s what I call a gold rush!
The Diamond Mine Megaways slot is a volatile game that can churn out some decent results with those re-spins, the endless multiplier and the cascading wins.
When a game is designed with some many Ways to Win it’d be rude not to!
