Lock it Feature

During the base game, whenever a special Heart or Gold Heart symbol lands on the reels, it will reveal a random Cash value up to 100x your current bet.

At any time during the base game, certain Heart symbols can be randomly replaced with Gold Hearts. 1 of 4 Jackpot Prizes known as Mini, Minor, Major and Grand can be displayed on each Gold Heart on reel 3. The Mini and Minor Jackpots can also be displayed on each Gold Heart on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5.

  • Mini – Awards 40x your current bet.
  • Minor – Awards 100x your current bet.
  • Major – Awards 2,000x your current bet.
  • Grand – Awards 5,000x your current bet.

The values of all Heart and Gold Heart symbols can only be awarded if the Lock it Feature is triggered. This is awarded by landing a combination of 3, 4 or 5 Heart symbols on the same row, which awards 3, 4 and 5 Free Spins respectively.

At the start of the Lock it feature, a cash value of 1x your current bet will be placed on each Gold heart on the triggering row. All triggering Heart symbols will come together, surrounded by a frame and locked into their positions.

During each Lock it spin, additional Heart symbols that land will be locked into their positions for the duration of the Lock it spins. Please note that Heart symbols that land during this feature will not have an initial Cash value on them.

When a Heart symbol lands adjacent to a Frame, the frame will expand and surround it. If 3 or more Heart symbols land adjacent to one another, a new frame will surround them.

If the total number of surrounded Heart symbols increases, an additional 1x cash value will be added to each surrounded heart and the number of Lock it spins is reset to the original total at the start of the round.

If all 15 positions are filled with Heart symbols, the cash value on each Heart symbol increases by an extra 2x your current bet and the Lock it feature ends.

At the end of the round, all cash values on each of the Heart symbols will be added together and awarded.

Lock it Link Diamonds - Lock it Feature

Landing 3 Diamond Scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4 triggers the Bonus round, awarding 5x your current bet.Once active, you will be able to choose between the Free Spins round or the Lock It Feature.

Choosing the Lock it feature will award 1 spin on an alternate reel set which guarantees 3, 4 or 5 Heart symbols to land, triggering the Lock it Feature.

Free Spins

Choosing the Free Spins option awards 6 Free Spins. Once active, an alternate reel set is used but winning combinations for this reel set remain the same as in the base game.

During Free Spins, all winning combinations formed are multiplied by a Multiplier based on the number of Wilds that appear across the reels. 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 Wilds award a Multiplier of x3, x4, x5, x6, x7 and x8 respectively.

Please note that Heart and Gold Heart symbols do not appear in the Free Spins round, and any Wild symbol in a winning combination does not pay Double like in the base game.

Lock it Link Diamonds Free Spins

Lock it Link Diamonds shows you that debonaire lifestyle that many dream of. Diamonds, jewellery, and gold are plentiful in the chic and exclusive looking establishment, but is Lock It Link Diamonds as exquisite as it looks?

Lock it Link Diamonds has moments of promise and the potential is definitely evident, though we wouldn’t call it one of Light & Woner’s ‘A-list’ slots.

The Jackpot prizes at the top of the screen are tempting reminders of why Lock It Link can be a capable and exciting game, and it’s almost as if its a carrot dangling in front of you on a string…a diamond carrot that is. The mini, and minor prizes will obviously be much more common, and as unappealing as they are in comparison, it’s something to play for to keep you going until the grand hits home.

Overall, Lock it Link Diamonds is a fine example of a slot done well, but it’s not overall innovative in the grand scheme of things. Nothing here hasn’t been done before, so it may be forgettable to those looking for some innovation.
