Midnight Diamonds Slot Review
With a city silhouette highlighted behind the reels, Midnight Diamonds is a retro-styled video slot that contains a full set of classic symbols that were yet given a contemporary touch. Unless one counts the visual aspect, the game has many bonus features that are found in 5-reel slots only. On the reels you will see cherries, bars, golden bells, dollar signs, money bags, diamond rings, diamond-encrusted sevens and richly adorned wild symbols. Barring wilds, regular symbols pay fairly decent prizes for at least three matching symbols that line up in a pre-set payline pattern. The top regular prizes are $2250 (five white money bags), $4500 (five rings) and $6750 (five 7s).
Fans of Bally games must have got used to finding a single bet option in most creations from that developer. In Midnight Diamonds, the number of lines is permanent and you cannot change them. The only adjustable option is a line bet that varies from $0.01 to $15, therefore the minimum and maximum stakes are $0.30 and $450 accordingly.
Three common wild symbols
It’s very rarely that a five-reeler is not equipped with a wild symbol but it is even rarer for 3 wilds to be available in a single game. All the three wilds pay out up to $9000 when five matching wilds or any mix of them land on a payline.
The wilds are also stacked during base play and free spins. Clearly enough, any stack of symbols contributes to winning combinations but wild stacks are many times as profitable as regular ones because they are able to trigger multiple winning paylines.
The other symbol of importance is a Bonus symbol, with three of them on reels 1, 3 and 5 activating an alluring Wheel bonus. On a new screen, you will be presented with a large wheel divided into sections. You press any button to spin the wheel and an arrow above it will finally point at your award. There are cash values from x5 to x60 a total stake as well as 8, 10 and 12 free spins. So the maximum potential bonus prize the Wheel can produce is $27,000 if playing at the maximum bet.
Free spins and diamonds
If a bonus wheel spin leads to a certain number of free spins, you are instantly awarded x5 a total bet and the feature begins. Above each reel you will see a special award that will be given to you if a diamond symbol appears on that reel. Awards can be any of the following:
- Instant cash prize that equals x1 to x5 a total bet
- Wild symbol. If a diamond falls on the reel that has the Wild above, that diamond will transform into a wild symbol. All wilds that were created during free spins persist until the end of the bonus feature
- Wild reel. All three positions on the reel associated with that reward become wild.
Midnight Diamonds is a feature-packed game with three different wild substitutes, stacked symbols and a bonus wheel that awards cash or free spins with an interesting twist. The max payout is x60 times a total bet.
