If you’re after a more unique slot and enjoy cluster games, Diamond Vortex from PlayNGo could well be for you. It has a cool look but more interesting is the design of the reels, or positions I should say. They do serve a purpose though, so let’s get into the game in more detail. You need a cluster of symbols anywhere on the screen to get a win. These are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Gold, Blue, Green or Red Jewel (lowest value)
- Gold Cluster
- Blue Cluster
- Green Cluster
- Red Cluster (highest value)

Diamond Vortex Slot Bonuses and Features
Rings, Zones and Spots. This game is quite unusual with its layout. IT has 3 rings that you can see on the display, each with its own zones and spots. The zones are static, meaning they don’t move, and when a spot or bonus symbol enters them they trigger a feature. More than this, whenever you get a win, each of the 3 rings will rotate a single stop, moving spots and existing symbols into new positions before new symbols enter the screen.
Wild Symbols. This game has wilds, of course, but they’re a bit different here. For a start, there’s the core wild, a wild symbol permanently in the center of the reels, substituting for all of the above-mentioned symbols in a winning combination. Then you have the regular wilds which can appear at any time. However, when part of a win they turn sticky, meaning they move closer to the center of the vortex after each win. Once it reaches the center, your multiplier will increase by 1x, up to a maximum of 20x. After the spin is over, it resets back to 1x.
Transform Feature. This is triggered when you land a spot in one of the 3 zones. Each symbol in that ring will turn into the same one to create a winning cluster. It’s possible to do this with all 3 rings simultaneously, turning all symbols into the same type for bigger wins.
Free Spins Bonus. Bonus symbols are also available in this game. When they land in a zone, you’ll get 5 spins, with each additional bonus symbol giving you another 5 free spins. The bonus is quite simple, with the core multiplier and spot positions not resetting after each spin, meaning payouts can be much bigger here. You can also retrigger the bonus by landing more bonus symbols.
Diamond Vortex slot from PlayNGo may seem quite complicated with rings, zones and spots, but it’s not too difficult to get the hang of. It’s basically just a cluster pays slot with a more unique design that’s used to trigger certain features. The most appealing things here are the transform feature which can turn a large number of symbols into the same kind, and the core multiplier wild which can reach up to 20x, although this is much more likely during the free spins bonus where it doesn’t reset. To get something good out of this game you really need at least 10 free spins, ideally 15, and some luck with spots. It’s nice to see something different and it’s pretty fun, offering up to 5,000x stake payouts. The RTP is disappointingly low though, and some players may be put off by the complexity of it.
