Like a Diamond slot immediately reminded me of the old childhood infant song ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ which contains the games name in its lyrics. Not to worry though, this is EGT and there aren’t any juvenile themes in their games portfolio. Instead we have high quality gems this time as our theme on a shiny reflective black background to mirror their beauty. The sounds are the usual basic ‘whoosh and snick’ you find on EGT slots, even their specifically-themed ones like Route of Mexico and Dragon Reborn. So will Like A Diamond become a jewel in your slots of choice?
On the reels…
Similar to numerous Novomatic slots like Just Jewels Deluxe have a basic game that features stacked symbols over 5 reels of 3 rows. There are 20 paylines and despite the scatters, as with the slot just mentioned there is no triggered feature or bonus round. You just get pays for scatters of 5, 20 or 200x bet for 3, 4 or 5-of-a-kind respectively. All the rest of the symbols appear fully stacked unlike the scatters and naturally the Diamond is top pay at 50x for the 5 followed by Pink and Blue gems at 10x, Red and Green gems both at 5x and lastly Purple and Yellow gems both pay 2.5x for the full line. The pays are only left-to-right.
Like a Diamond Wilds
The game’s icon forms the stacked Wild on reels 3, 4 and 5. This is no ordinary stacked Wild as it is also an expanding Wild but not in the usual way! Any part of or all of the stacked Wild appearing expands not vertically but to both the left and right. You may have figured that this means if it come fully stacked on reels 2 and 4 you would end up with a full screen and this is top possible award of 1000x bet as the Wild pays the same as the Diamond, 50x bet, for 5-of-a-kind.
Like a Diamond slot has a nice appearance and the developers usual RTP of around 95% and the 4 randomly-triggered progressive jackpots too. In spite of the lack of a feature the game is quite entertaining as although we have a medium to high volatility and the potential for large wins base game wins are far more common than say on Novomatic’s Power Stars so you have a good chance your balance will last while you hope for those Wild(s) to drop in. Yes, EGT’s Like a Diamond has turned me, well, on this occasion into a diamond geezer…..
