Diamond Slot Machine
777igt brings the bling with this slot. The slot is made up of everyone's two favorite things; gold and diamonds. It looks similar to another of the designer's games but with a little bit more color than Black Final.
This game's theme is presented in every aspect of the game to the background all the way through to the special features. You can't go wrong when you play this game. When the game first loads you notice all the shiny gold and glittering diamonds that can be found everywhere.
The longer you play the more you like the game and the symbols just enhance the theme because all of them are bright and shiny. If you're a 777igt fan you won't be disappointed with this game because it offers all the normal features like the jackpots and bonus game.
Let's take a minute and go through the game so you can get as excited as we are about it.
Diamond Slot Machines Overview
This game doesn't have a background to it at all as the reels take up the whole game space but that didn't bother us. The reels are surrounded in shiny gold and each side is adorned in rows of bright shiny diamonds.
The diamonds on either side keep with the game theme and display the number of pay lines the game has to offer. Like with their other game Black Final the designers at 777igt stuck to the classic combination of black and gold for the color scheme of the game.
This might be a little mundane for a game that's essentially about diamonds but it works well here. The colors in the symbols bring all the extra visual stimulation needed when you play. Another aspect of the game that we like was that all of the buttons to operate the game look to be housed inside two horseshoes. We like to think this is the designer's way of bringing us good luck while we play.
The one thing we found the biggest issue with was the music. We don't think the soundtrack is bad; it just really doesn't go with the game at all. It would better serve its purpose in a game that has cartoon characters in the form of children or animals.
The soundtrack is a little distracting if you leave it playing so we muted it fairly early in our time playing. We think that if it had fit the theme more it wouldn't have been that bad and we probably would have just let it play. It's not a bad track, just not what you expect with a game like this.
The reels have their own sound effect that you hear when you spin them. The win notification is a chiming sound and then you hear the coins as they get added to your balance. That's it as far as the sound and music go in this game.
The animations in this game come in different levels. You have the lower levels in the symbols. These animations are minimal and are only seen when you get a win on the reels. Some of the symbols spin while others pulse or have letters appear on them. The big animations are saved for announcements and other features of the game.
Other features in the game trigger different animations. When special features are triggered an announcement comes across the reels to tell you about free spins, scatter, or bonus wins. Also if you get a large pay out a Big Win announcement comes across. These animations are basic with little other excitement than a few small fireworks going off.
The area that has the most animation is the bonus game. This is where you see everything move and shine.
Diamond Pay Table and Graphics
Symbols and payouts for Diamond are as follows:
This beautiful diamond is great to see on the reels even if it's unlikely to show up regularly. This symbol awards you the Mega Jackpot if you get 5 of them on the reels at the same time. This symbol is the only chance you have to win the Mega Jackpot.
This symbol is another symbol you hope to see on the reels. This symbol triggers a Minor Jackpot win for you if you get 5 of them on the reels at the same time.
The CEO is the last chance to win a jackpot in this game. This symbol triggers the Mini Jackpot win if you get 5 of them on the reels at the same time. Even though this jackpot is the smallest it still has a huge pay out of at least 30,000 or more.
This symbol can pop right in and changes everything. It subs for all symbols except the scatter, bonus, free spin, or those linked to jackpot wins. If you get 5 of these symbols you receive a payout for 150 times your original wager.
The golden crown in a fiery red circle is the scatter symbol for the game. This symbol adds a multiplier to you original wager. It pays 5 times for a combination of 3, 30 times for a combination of 4, and 100 times for a combination of 5.
The diamond encrusted dollar sign is the free spin symbol. When this symbol appears on the reels it spins to make sure that you see it on board. The blue turbo triggers free spins when you get three or more on the reels during a single spin. You get 5 free spins for a combination of 3, 10 for a combination of 4, and 15 for a combination of 5.
This chest full of brightly colored diamonds makes the game so much more interesting. It triggers the bonus game when you get three or more of him on the reels at the same time.
This symbol pays 12 times for a combination of 3, 40 times for a combination of 4, and 200 times for a combination of 5.

The diamond 10 stands for the 10 in poker. It pays 10 times for a combination of 3, 20 times for a combination of 4, and 50 times for a combination of 5.
The best part about the game is the symbols. They all are designed so well and completely work with the theme. We loved all the bling that was added to the regularly mundane poker symbols. This gave them a little bit of a boost and gets them more attention than they get in most other games.
One thing we didn't like about the symbols was that they reused one of the jackpot symbols as a regular symbol. Yes the background was changed but this could cause for some confusion for new or inexperienced players. They had so many other options that could have been used we don't see why they needed to reuse one.
Our favorite symbols for this game would have to be the big purple diamond and the chest of diamonds. Who doesn't want to win a lot of money? And that is exactly what both of these symbols could do for you if you're lucky enough to get the right combinations.
Diamond Slot Extra Feature
The one thing that keeps us coming back to 777igt games over and over again is the special features that can be found in most the games they design. This one brings with it the mainstays like the jackpots and bonus game.
The jackpots come in three different sizes.
Gives the biggest pay out of the game. You must get 5 of the purple diamond symbols to trigger this big win. This jackpot can only be won if you meet these guidelines.
You have to get 5 of the molten star symbol. This jackpot won't have as big a payout as the Mega but it's still large enough to make your day.
This jackpot can be won when you get 5 of the CEO symbols on the reels at the same time. The minimum win for the mini jackpot is still big. You win at least 30,000 coins whenever you get lucky enough to hit it.
The wild symbol is the word wild that when part of a win the letters come in one at a time to form the word. This symbol will replace any of the regular symbols to make a winning combination. When this symbol is used to complete a combination it takes the place of the highest paying symbol.
The free spins symbol for this game is the diamond dollar sign and it gives you more chances to win without spending any of your own money. If you get 3 or more of these symbols anywhere on the reels you trigger the free spins. You receive an allotted amount of spins based on the number of symbols on the reels. You'll be awarded 5, 10, or 15 free spins.
The bonus game for is triggered by getting three or more of the chest full of diamonds on the reels anywhere. When this game is triggered you're taken to a new screen that has a tic tac toe board full of treasure chests.
Your goal is to find all the treasure chests that have diamonds hidden in them. If you click on one that has a bomb in it then the game is over and you're returned to the regular screen. The game continues as long as you're getting the right chests. If you're unlucky and click on a chest with a bomb first thing don't worry you won't leave the bonus game empty handed which is nice.
We did notice that some of the special features seem to appear more than others in the game. During our time playing the game we found the bonus game was triggered more than any other feature which we found weird but it's definitely not a bad thing. The scatter was another that seemed to appear more than normal with this game. The free spins were more elusive here than they usually are but we were ok with that since the other two seem to make up for this features absence.
Diamond offers you 50 pay lines. Pay lines are added to games to increase the player's chance at getting wins on each spin. These lines give multiple options for a winning combination to appear on the reels. This game has 50 lines available and since they aren't fixed lines you can change the number that's being played each spin.
If you decide to do this you can do so in increments of 10 so that gives you the ability to play as little as 10 pay lines per spin and up to the 50 that are available. It's recommended you play all 50 because if you don't you might miss out on a big win that fell on a line you decided not to play. It's easy to think that the less lines you play the longer you can play and in some cases this may be true but if you play all 50 you'll definitely win more times than with the lower number of lines.
This game offers you the ability to change the value of your bet after each spin. The range of betting is set from .01 to $1.20 per spin. This makes the game perfect for anyone who just wants to play the game for fun with a low bankroll or for high rollers who like to take a shot at huge wins.
Diamond game rules are in line with most other 5 reel slot machines. Below are the main rules:
- Most wins are formed from right to left, beginning with the leftmost reel.
- If two or more wins are formed in the same line, only the highest payout is awarded.
- Any misuse or malfunction will abort the game and everything will be reset to default.
- The wild cannot start free spins; you must get three or more free spin symbols to receive free spins.
- Scatter symbols will trigger a multiplier from anywhere on the reels.
- Bonus game is triggered when three or more bonus symbols appear anywhere on the reels.
- The wild subs for all symbols except the scatter, free spin and bonus symbols.
- The wild symbol also has a payout amount when you get 5 on the reels at the same time.
- Jackpots can only be won when the designated symbol is found on the reels 5 times.
Diamond is one of our favorite 777igt games. With all the glitz found in the game it's hard not to feel like you just might win some of it. Other than the soundtrack they chose there wasn't much we could find fault with besides the reuse of the one symbol.
The symbols that they used in the game were perfect for this game. All of them were so bright and shiny you couldn't help but fall in love with them. One thing we might change about the game is the special features. We think it would serve the game well to add a little something to the wild symbol to make it more interesting and the scatter as well could use a little work.
Other than that the bonus and free spins features are awesome. We really enjoyed the bonus game in Diamond. The best thing about the bonus game is you don't have a limit to how many times you can choose the treasure chests like in most of the other 777igt bonus games that just give you 2 chances to rack up the money.
We wish that the jackpots were more attainable but we just keep praying that one day it'll be our turn and the money will come raining down on us. So go out and find Diamond and give it a try; you won't be sorry.
