The prospectors are calling for help in the Diamond Mine slot, the game based on the mineshafts of the Old West and developed by Blueprint Gaming. This six-reel slot is jam-packed with bonuses, with over 117,649 ways to win, thanks to this standout gameplay feature. Read on to see how to play.
Symbols revolve around all the kinds of things you'd expect to see in a mineshaft: shovels, pickaxes, bags of gold, as well as a miner and his gas lamp. Match three of them on an active payline to create a winning combination.
Standard playing cards also make up the lowest-value symbols on the reels, and the highest-symbol is obviously the diamond, worth 50x your stake. You can adjust your stake using the easy increase/decrease control on the left-hand side of the screen, and your main spin button is on the left.
This game is not too far from Bonanza itself, and it has a veritable bonanza of bonus features all its own! Let us take a look at what's on offer and how they all work.
As if fitting for a game set in a mineshaft, Diamond Mine features a Cascading Reels mechanism, meaning that every time you activate a winning payline on the board, the next symbols will drop down in their place immediately the symbols continuous. This fantastic feature means you can create more winning combinations off just one spin. So long as you keep matching symbols, new ones will continue to drop in their place.
Your first wildcard symbol for this slot is the TNT symbol, which in case you didn't know, is dynamite. This wild is better than a standard substitution symbol though, but because it makes a big explosion before turning into the symbol, you need to complete your combination.
Last but not least, what slot machine is complete without some free spins? In Diamond Mine, the bag of gold is your scatter symbol but - slightly more than other games - you'll need to match at least four of them anywhere on the reels to trigger 12 free spins. Each additional symbol will grant you another five free spins. Should you create another scatter combination during this round, you can win even more!
What makes this arguably the best bonus feature is that the cascading reels feature is still in play during this round. This means that each time you create another successful combination, you have another chance to chain wins together and maximise the number of coins you win from just one spin.
The visuals are as you'd expect: the reels themselves act as a mineshaft in front of a desert backdrop of the Old West. The board itself is inside the rickety wooden scaffolding you often see in this kind of setting. Better still, the soundtrack is delightful and not only in line with the theme, but conveys a great sense of the Old West.
