Diamond Dragon has exactly the kind of theme that its title suggests, the topic revolving around dragons and around the knights that apparently will hunt them down. There are various medieval inspired weapons used in the design, and the entire thing has a cartoon style that I enjoyed. As for the rest of the offer, it includes the use of 50 pay lines total, and the great thing is that only 5x3 reels are used to host them all. By the looks of it, the regular jackpot gets up to $1,500, though multipliers do exist and they can improve it. In addition to the multipliers, the game also has expanding wild symbols, free spins, super rounds, scatters and a Diamond Pick bonus game.
It’s going to be a game where wagers tend to be on the high side, but that’s normal since you get a total of 50 active lines out of it. You may use up to 10 coins for each line that you keep active, while the denominations will be allowed to reach $0.25. With those numbers in mind, you can figure out the line bet, of up to $2.50, as well as the total bet, which can reach $125.
The game has all the elements of a good medieval novel, featuring fire breathing dragons that live on top of volcanoes, a beautiful princess and three knights that seem ready to demonstrate that they’re worthy to get the lady’s hand in marriage. I enjoyed the way the design was done, it’s one of the good sides of the slot. You will encounter the symbols that I just mentioned, along with six Royals that don’t do much for the design, plus symbols with potions, goblets or halberds. By far, the coolest symbol of all is the one showing us the dragon, especially since it can expand and will give us a bigger version of the creature as well. For the graphics selected for Diamond Dragon, the developer went with cartoon style icons. Some of them are good, especially the ones showing us the dragon or the various human characters. The objects are decent as well, but the Royals are as boring as they are in every other slot machine, even though they seem to be made out of some kind of metal, so they’re not coming in the usual mix of flashy colors.
The Dragon is one of the major features offered in the slot, being used as an expanding wild. What this means is that it can take over the entire reel, if this will result in new combinations forming. If a new combo wouldn’t form this way, then it will remain in its regular form. The wild symbol has some limitations, some of them expected, such as the inability to replace a scatter, while others are more of a surprise. I’m talking about the fact that you get these wilds only on the first two reels. It becomes a better feature during free spins and super rounds though. The free spins are activate through the Halberd scatter symbol, whenever it appears anywhere on the reels and a minimum of three times. Your rewards will be a feature with 10, 20 or 50 free spins, in exchange for 3, 4 or 5 Halberds. Wild symbols are available on reels 1, 2 and 3 and they have a 2x multiplier. The Super Round is obtainable only during the free spins. If you land three to five Silver Halberd symbols on the reels, you get 5 rounds. The wilds are offered on the first four reels, and they provide wins with a multiplier of 3x. There is a second scatter symbol in this game, the image of a Diamond selected for it. It’s a scatter that triggers a short picking feature, where you choose one of those diamonds and you get a reward. The Diamond scatter is available on the reels 1, 3 and 5.
The slot has a top prize of 600x, offered by the Potion symbol. You can get $1,500 from it during regular spins, or as much as $4,500 during Super Rounds if a wild symbol contributes. I can’t say that I’m loving the size of the top payouts that are offered.
Diamond Dragon and its Medieval theme will be games to play for some players, but plenty will ignore it, and I can’t say that they will lose much by doing so.
