4 Diamond Blues Megaways Theme

4 Diamond Blues Megaways theme features an antique 50’s Slot machine, other than the moving spotlights that can be seen in the background, there is not much in terms of visuals to point out.

The title 4 Diamond Blues Megaways does give us a clue that the overall theme has a 50’s feel to it, but looking at the bigger picture it feels like Buck Stakes Entertainment could have given us a little more to look at.

Buck Stakes Entertainment has definitely scored some points when we look at sounds, the background music sets the tone for the overall theme and certain sound effects can be heard throughout.

We get where Buck Stakes Entertainment were going with 4 Diamond Blues Megaways in terms of theme, it’s simple yet elegant, but ultimately doesn’t bring anything new to the table.

 We feel that 4 Diamond Blues Megaways may appeal to the older and more experienced gamer that has an appreciation for Retro slots.

4 Diamond Blues Megaways Our Verdict

4 Diamond Blues Megaways may well appeal if you have a soft spot for a bygone era of gaming with its old school influence, but if you’re looking for something more innovative in the Megaways space then you may want to look elsewhere. 

4 Diamond Blues Megaways is solid if you’re looking for a tried and true Megaways classic with its cascading reels and incremental multiplier, but there’s really not a lot to separate it from a plethora of other Megaways slots that do the same thing. 

Statistics on this one look pretty good though, with a 29,000x maximum win potential and a 96.40% RTP value, and 4 Diamond Blues Megaways is at least transparent when it comes to expectations having stated an average win potential of 92x in Free Spins. 

Overall, 4 Diamond Blues Megaways has a lot to offer for those looking for a dose of nostalgia and those who have an affinity for Megaways slots, but it doesn’t offer much innovation.
