It is always with great intrigue that I approach any slots title released by the US-based developer Bally Technologies because more often than not I usually find that their title that have usually enjoyed success in the land-based market transfer well to the online platform.
Will It Match Its Reputation?
Shadow Diamond is a 5 reel, 40 payline slot that is another of those games that comes into this market with a reputation in casinos up and down the US in particular. It also provides all the visual traits you want to see from a Bally slot which makes a good start.
The symbols on the reels are very brooding and mysterious including the diamond lady herself, a tall, dark stranger, a diamond necklace, a diamond ring, a diamond encrusted watch, and the regular symbols represented by an orange, blue, pink, red, and green coloured gem.
Look Out for the Shadow Diamond Wild
The Shadow Diamond logo acts as the Wild and it substitutes for all other symbols, except for the Scatters, to complete any potential winning combinations across the reels that might appear on a single spin.
There’s Super Stacks!
There is a Super Stacks feature on this slot. Each reel contains a certain number of mystery positions and on each spin these mystery positions are filled with one symbol so that the symbol appears Stacked on the reels for that spin.
Trigger Free Spins with 12 Diamond Scatters
You will want to keep an eye out for this happening with the Scatters, represented by a huge diamond, because these appear on reels 2, 3, and 4 only but if you hit 12 of them on the reels (or three Stacked reels of them) then you will trigger the free spins bonus round.
Earn 7 Free Spins with Stacked Symbols
Once triggered, you will be given 7 free spins. You must then select a diamond to reveal one of the game’s main symbols. That symbol will then act as the Stacked symbol throughout the free spins bonus round. Unfortunately, it is not possible to re-trigger the free spins bonus round because the Scatters do not appear on the reels during the free spins.
Shadow Diamond has the alluring eyes of the diamond lady at the top of the reels that draws you in straight away. It has a similar feel to IGT’s Black Widow slot and with that slot also having Stacked symbols the two can appear very similar. This comparison is increased by the fact that 7 free spins can be won with the Scatters on both slots! The Stacked symbols will also be good news for those of you that love the other Bally slot Chimney Stacks. This is your standard Bally slot. It might lack depth when it comes to the bonus features but the Stacked symbols on every spin ensure wins are more frequent than on other titles and the free spins will provide some fun action. Yes, it could be better but this will entertain you for long enough and do the job.
