Team up with a quartet of nondescript superheroes to secure the jackpot in Diamond Force, a new slot experience developed by Crazy Tooth Studios for the Microgaming platform. The comic book-themed game is based on a five reel, four-row grid that offers 1,024 ways to win.
If that’s still too conventional for your liking, the unique features of Diamond Force are sure to pique your interest. Central to the gameplay are the free spins and bonus features, which can lead to an entirely new level of cash prizes and multipliers. But do they make up for the slot’s high volatility? Read on to find out.
Diamond Force is available on both desktop and mobile devices through numerous online casinos. To make a bet, you’ll need to spend between 0.10 and 10 credits per spin. Given the high-variance math model and 96.53% return-to-player rate, it’s safe to say that this game will satisfy players with bankrolls of all sizes.
Like most slots, landing three or more symbols of the same kind results in a winning combination. Where Diamond Force differentiates itself is that the rule applies no matter where the symbols land. This is how the game manages to provide 1,024 ways to win.
You’ll find another unique, albeit less welcome gameplay mechanic on the paytable. Regardless of how many symbols land in a combo, your payout remains unchanged. Perhaps the features make up for it. Before we find out, let’s take a brief look at the theme and design of Diamond Force.
The theme of Diamond Force is characterized by bright and colorful elements set over a backdrop of skyscrapers lighting up the night. The developers leave it up to you to decide who exactly the four superhero characters are and where they live. Where Diamond Force lacks in context it makes up for with striking animations that add depth to the game.
Crazy Tooth Studios’ “independent” approach to the theme can result in some associations with more established superhero franchises, but that’s not what we’re here for. The following are the features that make Diamond Force worth a spin.
The in-house Team-Up Reels™ feature is the standout gameplay mechanic with this game and it comes in two forms. The one you’ll come across most is activated when three or more superhero symbols land fully in view. It doesn’t matter whether all three are the same character or each is completely different.
When this happens, a new game board is generated with unique values and modifiers. This includes each character’s unique multipliers, which are x5, x3, x2 and high-value rewards for the blue, red, purple and green cards respectively.
Land two or more stacked superheroes while the 3x1 Full Stack Bonus Symbol is on the fifth reel to activate the second form of said feature. Here, you can gain between 3 and 20 free spins depending on which symbols you land.
With a win value topping out at 13,175 times the maximum bet, Diamond Force issure has potential. But overcoming the high volatility of the slot means you’ll have to make the most of your powers.
