Black Diamond Slot Review
Black Diamond is a Pragmatic Play slot game that features a variety of different gemstones on its reels. Set against a backdrop of a snowy mountain range, this slot has a crisp and cool feel about it. That’s wonderfully aided by the brilliant coldness of the sparkling gems. They start low, with nothing but a metal ring and make their way up past emeralds, crystal pyramids and agates. The higher value symbols are the different colored diamonds: yellow, purple, blue and red. The red diamond symbol is also the most lucrative in this game, offering payouts of up to a whopping 6,000 coins. As you can tell from the name, the black diamond is also present, as are a set of gold bars.
The slot has a standard layout of 5 reels and 3 rows. There are 25 paylines in total and they are not subject to adjustment. However, you can regulate the bets per line, along with the coin value. This will leave you with a 25p to £125 per spin betting range.
The game’s namesake symbol is also its Wild. The Black Diamond Wild can replace any of the regular symbols to help create winning combinations. However, it can of course not substitute for the Bonus and Scatter symbols in the game.
As for the Scatter symbol, it comes in the shape of a diamond apple and offers you 10 freespins. Keep a good eye out for it, as it only appears on reels 1 and 5. You will be looking to land both Scatters at the same time in order to activate the freespins feature. What’s more, you can retrigger the bonus round and gain an extra 10 freespins for a total of 20. For this you will need to again land 2 Scatter symbols on reels 1 and 5.
Black Diamond also features a Bonus symbol, which is responsible for yet another bonus game. It comes in the form of a stack of gold bars and only appears on the middle reels 2, 3 and 4. Landing all three on an active payline will take you to a new screen with a Pick Me game. It will be up to you to pick a gemstone from those before you and reveal your prize. You can score anywhere from 40 to 600 coins.
Black Diamond does make a good impression with the fact that it offers two different special features. However, the graphics and regularity, at which you can trigger those features, doesn’t really give one much to work with. All in all, this is an average, low to medium variance slot game with not a whole bunch of excitement to offer.
