Vegas Diamonds Slot
- A classic slot set in the gambling capital of the world
- A simple 3×3 layout with classic symbols such as Bar and Fruits
- Some nice features including respins and a Fortune Wheel
Vegas Diamonds slot from Elk Studios tried to bring the fun and glamour of playing at Las Vegas right to your home. This is clear right from the get-go, with flashing lights and the Strip right behind the reels, with even the sounds of a slot that you’d expect to hear in a casino. In fact, it’s the level of detail in both the design of the game including the backdrop and symbols, as well as the soundtrack and all the animations that really creates an immersive experience that you seldom see in slots these days. I’m very impressed by this if you can’t tell.
The features are interesting too and also very Vegas like. There are respins on offers, but also a fortune wheel with extra multipliers and free spins. I’ll come onto these in more detail shortly though. For now, all you need to know is that there’s a 3×3 reel with just 5 paylines, and you need to spin the reels to try and get a winning combination from left to right using the following base symbols which I’ve listed in ascending order based on their value:
- Cherries (lowest value)
- Double Bar
- Triple Bar
- Vegas Diamonds Logo (highest value)
Vegas Diamonds Slot Bonuses and Features
The above are the base symbols, but Vegas Diamonds also features several other symbols with various properties. For a start, we have the Wild symbol. There are actually 4 of these and each has a multiplier associated to them of either 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x. They will substitute for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the Fortune Wheel, other Wild symbols and the nudge feature of the Vegas Diamonds symbol. The Vegas Diamonds symbol, as well as being the most valuable symbol in the game, will force the reels to nudge so that the symbols are all aligned on the middle row when 3 of these appear at any one time, in other words guaranteeing a win. Finally, there’s the Fortune Wheel symbol, and when 3 of these appear anywhere on the reels at the same time the Fortune Wheel feature is triggered.
Perfect Match Respins. This is a simple feature that works when the symbols on the first reel are identical to the symbols on the second reel. If that happens, those 2 reels will lock in place and the third reel will respins 3 times, hopefully giving you some extra wins.
Fortune Wheel. As mentioned earlier, this is triggered by 3 or more Fortune Wheel symbols appearing anywhere on the reels, and you’ll start the bonus with 3 spins on the Fortune Wheel. The Wheel has 3 different levels, Bronze, Silver and Gold, each with increasing amounts, respectively. If you manage to hit a Level Up symbol on the wheel, you will move up to the next level and be given an extra spin on said level. If you land on a Free Spins segment, this will give you 5 free spins along with a multiplier of 5x to be played after the spins on the wheel have ended. Another Fortune wheel symbol will give you just one extra spin on the reel. The bonus ends when all spins on the reel have been used up, and payouts are made at the end of the bonus.
Vegas Diamonds slot from Elk Studios has a pretty basic design and some interesting features. I actually really like how they’ve used the classic, traditional symbols like bars and fruits and a flashy backdrop of Vegas with all its glamour and neon lights. It’s about as close to playing a slot in Vegas as you can get without actually being there. Having just a 3×3 reel setup with only 5 paylines is certainly interesting and might not be for everyone, but I actually welcome the change from the normally 5×3 grid. The features here are pretty basic, the respins isn’t bad but it’s the Fortune Wheel that can result in the bigger payouts, and Vegas Diamonds slot actually offers up to 200,0x your bet which isn’t bad. All in all, I think it’s quite a fun slot with potential for big rewards, I’m just not sure if it will appeal to everyone. If you want to give it a try, check it out now at Casumo.
