Diamond Mine Deluxe Slots
Does the name Diamond Mine ring a bell or two? If so, you might have played the original version that has been revamped for a sequel here. Diamond Mine Deluxe retains many of the features that made the first one appealing, while offering a few extras as well.
If you're ready to learn more, our slot game review is ready to let you know all the facts and features of this great game.
Was the game created by the same team?
Yes, it comes from Realtime Gaming. There is no need to have played the original title before you play this one.
Does it still come with a demo version to check out?
Yes, the ever-reliable RTG has provided one of those for us here.
Does the game offer the same theme?
Yes, diamonds were the focus of the first game, and they return here. The biggest-paying symbol has changed though, and it's a change we like a lot. We think you will too. Any guesses as to what that might be?
Design elements to note before you play
It's always good to stand back and view a game before you play it. Diamond Mine Deluxe isn't meant to be a complex or detailed game - quite the opposite, in fact. It is supposed to be a classic one-armed bandit game, and in that respect, it looks great.
The basics to consider before you play Diamond Mine Deluxe
There are three reels here once again, but while the original game didn't have a wild, this one does. The highest-valued symbol is a 2x one inside an oval, and this is wild for all other symbols in the game.
One wild in a winning line would double the usual prize, while two would offer a 4x multiplier. The exception to that would be if you find three double diamond icons on the reels.
How many paylines are in action?
Diamond Mine Deluxe matches the original game by offering just one line to bet on.
Speaking of bets…
The minimum coin wager is the same as the first game too, at five cents per coin. You can also play one, two, or three coins just as you originally did. That provides a lot of versatility in selecting your wager, especially since there are higher-valued coins present as well.
The paytable is easy to find
It sits just above the reels, so you can refer to it whenever you want to.
No bonus to trigger
With no scatter or bonus symbol, this probably won't be a huge surprise.
Don't expect any free spins either
There are none to be found in this basic game.
RTP information hasn't been released
That's quite normal for games released by Realtime Gaming, though.
Do we rate this one more highly than the original?
We do. The first game was good if you like basic slots without the fruity theme. This one is better because of the wild symbol, which also offers a 2x or 4x multiplier if one or two are involved in a winning line. We'd give this one 7 out of 10.
The biggest winner could net 3,000 coins
If you played three coins on the payline and you found three of the 2x wilds there, you'd receive 3,000 coins. This compares with 1,600 coins for a two-coin bet and 800 coins if you wagered just one coin.
Start with the demo to see what you think
The inclusion of that wild multiplier makes this game way better than the original Diamond Mine slot. Check out the demo version for Diamond Mine Deluxe and see how it plays for you.
Would you play this one for real?
You'll soon find out the answer if you try it first. Plenty of RTG casinos should have this in their collection.
Available for mobile platforms too
This is good news, as the game looks great even when you're viewing it on a smartphone. Tablet users can play too, using touchscreen controls. Android and iOS devices work fine, as do those on Windows.
