The Diamond Force slot can be found at Microgaming casinos. Microgaming as a standard now publish the house edge information of all their slots at any online casino that holds a UKGC license (this is a requirement for all UKGC licensed casinos). As such we can say that the House Edge of Diamond Force is 3.47%. When playing at any venue that does not hold a UKGC license and does not specifically publish the Return to Player information for their game, this information should be used as a guideline only as we cannot confirm whether or not this game is configurable.
Diamond Force is a 5-reel game that is 4 symbols high. There are no paylines, instead you form wins when you land identical symbols across 3 adjacent reels. The direction that those wins are formed in can be either left to right or right left and the win can start at any point on the reels. There are 1024 different combinations in total.
There is a superhero theme to this slot that seems to suggest we have a band of heroes all coming together to fight crime as a group opposed to fighting evil alone. There is something reminiscent of a particular Marvel mega-franchise, which I am sure you can work out for yourself.
Wilds – The Wild symbol will substitute for all symbols other than Scatters and will only appear on reels 1 and 5.
Feature Symbols – The Super Hero symbols are classed as Feature symbols because if you can land 3 or more of them you will trigger the Team Up Feature.
Bonus Symbol – If you land a Bonus symbol with 2 or more Feature symbols then you will trigger the Team-Up Bonus Spins.
Team Up Feature – If you trigger the Team Up Feature then the symbols that triggered it will turn into a new set of reels, with each symbol becoming a reel on the new grid. All the reels will then be populated with credit amounts and multipliers. The multiplier will be applied to any credit amounts that land on that spin. The feature ends once all the credit amounts and all the multipliers have been awarded.
Team Up Bonus – If you trigger the Team Up Bonus Feature then you will be given a new set of reels to play over that will equate in size to the number of symbols that triggered the feature. This time the reels will be populated with multipliers and additional spins. You will be given 3 spins in total. The multipliers will be applied to the triggering bet.
Diamond Force is the most recent collaboration between Microgaming and Crazy Tooth Studio. The design is good but I can’t help but feel it is lacking in a few finer finishing touches. The main features operate using the Team Up Reels technology which adds degree of exciting to the spins. You get, essentially 2 bonus features, 1 of which you can class as a mini Free Spins feature. There’s certainly a lot to like and yet still a number of things that could be improved. However, with a low house edge this is one slot we will be recommending.
