Get ready to sink your teeth into Games Global partner SpinPlay Games’ latest ‘roarsome’ release, Diamond King Gold!
SpinPlay Games are the masterminds behind the popular Amazing Link series, Mustang Riches and Alice in WildLand titles, but will Diamond King Gold have the kinds of things we’re looking for in a sequel? At first glance Diamond King Gold looks no different to the original aside from a few tweaks to the graphics, but it’s what’s lurking in the shadows that counts. It’s all about the Free Spins round here, which introduces Gold Lion symbols that contribute towards Upgrading Symbols and glorious big wins.
Sit back, relax and watch the King of the jungle in action once again in a new and improved version of Diamond King Jackpots, but try not to get too close, this majestic beast will defend his territory at all costs. Have you got what it takes to brave the lion’s den?
Let’s play on and find out!
Diamond King Gold is a 5 reel slot with 1,024 ways to win. In order to form a winning combination, you will need to connect 3 or more (or 2 or more of any High-paying symbol) from left to right, starting from the left-most reel. The minimum bet available here is £/€0.25 per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€25 per spin, with many options in between the two.
In terms of symbols, the highest paying regular symbol in Diamond King Gold is the Lion, followed by the Elephant, Rhino, Zebra and Meerkats. Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten and Nine. There is also a Wild symbol present which substitutes for all symbols except Scatters.
The Power Range is a box that sits in the middle of reels 2, 3 and 4 at all times.
Each time a Wild symbol lands anywhere in the Power Range box, a Multiplier of x2 is awarded and will be applied to any winning combinations for that particular spin.
During any random base game spin, the Power Range box can expand to fill reels 2, 3 and 4 through the Roar Feature. Any Wilds that land in the Power Range during the Roar feature will be awarded a Multiplier of either x2, x3 or x5.
During the Free Spins round the Roar Feature is always active.
Each time a Wild symbol lands inside the Power Range, it will be collected and stored in the Diamond Meter atop the reel set.
Once the Diamond Meter is filled to the top, the Diamond Jackpot feature is awarded. Please note, the Diamond Jackpot feature can only be triggered in the base game.
Once the Diamond Jackpot feature is active, the reels will be swapped out for a collection of Diamond symbols.
Continue to pick Diamonds until 3 of the same Colour are found which will award the corresponding Jackpot Prize. These are as follows.
Landing 3, 4 or 5 Scatters in any position on the reels triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 10, 15 and 20 Free Spins respectively.
During the Free Spins round, a Gold Lion symbol may appear on the reels. All Gold Lion symbols that land in view will be collected and stored in one of the 4 High-paying meters at the top of the reel set. The Elephant, Rhino, Zebra and Meerkat symbols can be Upgraded to the highest paying symbol if enough Gold Lions are collected.
Landing 2, 3, 4 or 5 Scatters during the Free Spins round, awards an additional +5, +10, +15 or +20 Free Spins respectively. The Roar Feature is always active during Free Spins.
For those outside the UK, you may benefit from a Bonus Buy option.
Depending on which Bonus Buy option you choose, you will be awarded 1 Spin on the Wheel which determines the amount of Free Spins and Gold Lions you will start the round with.
Stepping into the Savannah is always a pleasure, and especially so in Diamond King Gold.
The Power Range Feature givers the game versatility and the Diamond Jackpot Feature makes it a rather enticing prospect for those Jackpot Hunters.
Is Diamond King the best in its class for Savannah themed slots? Probably not, but the competition is as fierce as a Lion in this regard, so that’s not a dig at Diamond King Gold, but a testament to infamous African Games that remain popular even years after release.
Diamond King Gold certainly has the potential to reel in its own fanbase though, but UK players might feel a little envious of those within Juridstictions that allow bonus buys, which definitely ups the appeal of Diamond King Gold.
In terms of potential, Diamond King Gold has a maximum cap of 10,240x, which certainly makes it worth a spin even if you’re not a fan of the wild theme.
Overall, Diamond King Gold is easy to underestimate, but when we were testing it it certainly grew on us.
