Free Diamond Vortex slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Diamond Vortex slot by Play'n Go is another grid-based slot with a pattern that you may have seen before in their Honey Rush slot. It doesn't have the traditional square that is used on their older games like Moon Princess slot and more recently, Yggdrasil's Trolls Bridge 2. Here we get a purple Milky Way background with modernistic synth music as the soundtrack and crystal symbols as the individual tiles that form the wins. So moving straight on, can our bankroll see some diamond action or will it forever disappear into the vortex?
On The Grid...
There are 37 individual positions on Diamond Vortex slot with an outer ring of 18, then 12, then 6 and finally one in the centre which is a sticky Core Wild. Symbols cascade in and you need 6 or more adjacent symbols to win. The pays for 35+ or the minimum 6 are Flame Gem 100/1x, Green Gem 60/0.6, Blue Gem 40/0.4, Yellow 20/0.2 with 4 small shape gems all paying 10/0.1x for the highest and lowest clusters respectively. You will see a Zone in each of the 3 rings which is highlighted and you need to land a Spot or Bonus symbol in any of them to trigger the modifiers or main feature. Any Wilds involved in clusters will become Sticky and gravitate to the centre of the vortex, and each one doing so will increase the Core Wild multiplier by 1x. All wins occurring will make the rings move about to increase the chance of more wins on that spin too.
When you land a Spot symbol in its respective ring, it will activate that ring and display just one random symbol in it, guaranteeing a win. You can activate 2 or 3 rings simultaneously and activating all 3 will guarantee a full-screen win!
You get 5 of these for each Bonus symbol landing in a Zone position during any one play. As in the base game, a meter is displayed on the right to track you collected winning combinations thus far along with any multiplier accrued. Your multiplier for the Core Wild can only increase too and doesn't reset between spins. The Zone spots, as in the base game, will move around from their original 6 o'clock positions each time a win occurs and replacement tiles come in to play. If a Bonus tile rotates into one of them you get a retrigger. The multiplier is unlimited and as usual Play'n Go tell us 5,000x is possible here.
Diamond Vortex slot is visually an excellent game and the free games tend to arrive more frequently than on the other Play'n Go grid slots mentioned in the first paragraph. You do get quite a few dead spins in the base game but the wins when they do occur tend to be reasonable enough to maintain your balance and you do get the odd big win too. Your RTP is 96.20% but can be lower at many casinos, so always check! The free games will often be disappointing due to their frequency but when it does go, it goes big. If you fancy being a diamond geezer, head this way...
