Diamond Mine Slots is one of those great traditional online-slots games everyone should try to play at least once. The graphics are very sharp, down to the old-style metal handles with black knobs and the chrome frame of the machine itself. It is, in fact, listed as one of the three-reel classics among slots choices, offering the player a single pay line and some rather straight-forward symbols on the pay table displayed above the reels.
Clicking on a chip ($5, $25, $100) puts the “Bet One” and “Play Three Credits” buttons into play. Example: Selecting $5 chip provides 100 credits. Available credits, payout in credits and coins played are shown on digital display to the right of the reels. Setting the reels in motion brings up some old-school sounds that should please slots veterans - there’s a bit of that clunking/metallic sound from the traditional slot machines. A single diamond provides the lowest level of win, with amounts doubling and tripling for the second and third coin.
Two diamonds, any three bars and three particular sets of bars are the next three items on the pay table. From there, the payouts go to three “7s,” three diamonds and three dollar signs. Dollar signs pay 800 for one coin, 1,600 for the second coin and Progressive for the third coin. The Options link at the upper right allows the player a couple of basic choices – speed and sound controls. A “Back” link takes the player to the home page. Two other links in this area are “Help” and “Cashier.”
Diamond Mine Slots doesn’t have a bonus feature or other “side” game. Earlier versions of this game offered a highest prize of 2,500. As mentioned earlier, the top prize for three coins is Progressive, an added incentive for players to select three coins. There are no Wild or Scatter symbols but it is a multi-denomination game.
Diamond Mine Slots also comes in deluxe version that adds a couple of multipliers – 2x and 4x. Symbols on the reels are very different, though the pay table is essentially the same with 800, 1600 and progressive across the top level. Either way, this is a game that is simple but very enjoyable. Progressive possibilities and the traditional design should attract newcomers and veterans alike.
