New Quickspin Online Slot Game: Diamond Duke
The latest online slot game from Quickspin has a retro feel. Diamond Duke hit online casinos in Australia and around the world on May 12, and it is delivering a fresh game for players who needed something unique and fun.
Designing Diamond Duke
More than a month ago, when Quickspin announced the final preparations for Diamond Duke’s release, it described it as a “colourful concoction of classic diamonds, sevens and cherries paired with symbols and animations that will take you on a nostalgia trip.”
The goal was to make players feel as if they are in the 1950s, maybe at a diner, listening to some doo-wop and rock-n-roll on a jukebox. However, Quickspin developers also invested quite a bit of technology to give it the volatility and excitement players expect.
They designed Diamond Duke with a “portrait first” approach to provide the best gaming experience on mobile devices. And the graphics took pieces of old slot machines, jukeboxes, and vintage cars to create a very original game.
Producer Bjarne Gronnevik described Diamond Duke as a “great testament to our versatility as it’s expanding our portfolio with something completely new and unique, both in terms of graphics and the math.”
Diamond Duke Overview
The music is upbeat and jazzy, and the jukebox/slot machine is at the center of the game. It is set against a dark blue background with tiny lights (or stars) to break it up. It puts the sole focus on the action. The soundtrack takes some of the 1950s sound but transforms it into a bit of a game show theme at times.
Diamond Duke is a classic 3×3 slot game with 5 paylines. The RTP (return-to-player) is 96.23%, making it a very highly volatile game.
There are numerous features and levels of play, all keeping it moving despite the volatility.
Payouts for Diamond Duke
This latest Quickspin slot gives players the chance to win up to 8,000x the bet.
Stakes start with a minimum bet of $0.05 per spin, and it increases incrementally from there. Bigger betting options are $10, $20, $40, $60, $100 per spin.
The payouts for each symbol in the game, while playing at the minimum $0.05 bet, are as follows:
- Wheel scatter = $0.20 for 2, $0.40 for 3
- Diamond = $8.00 for 3
- Seven = $0.60 for 3
- Bell = $0.40 for 3
- Melon = $0.10 for 3
- Grapes = $0.05 for 3
- Cherries = $0.05 for 3
Diamond Duke Features
There are more features than one might think for a three-reel, five-payline game.
Diamond Duke starts with the Wheel Scatters. Those scatters are the only symbols not bound to bet line, and they can pay for either two or three on a payline.
Two Wheel Scatters pay 4x the bet and initiate the Bonus Wheel. Three of them pay 8x the bet and then start the Bonus Wheel and the Multiplier Wheel.
The Bonus Wheel spins on its own and lands on stops on one of these options:
- 2x win amount
- 3x win amount
- 5x win amount
- 7x win amount
- 10x win amount
- Star = Pick & Click
The Pick & Click is a bonus round. Players can click on the buttons that look like lighted coins, and they win amounts underneath the buttons. Those amounts can be between 2x and 7x the bet. Players can also click on the X, which stops the bonus game and pays out the winnings. However, by finding the upward arrow under one button, it upgrades the player to a new Pick & Click.
The Pick & Click levels are:
- Stage 1 (described above)
- Stage 2 (multipliers of 3x to 15x the bet, an X, and an arrow)
- Stage 3 (top level, multipliers of 5x to 100x)
The Multiplier Wheel spins when a player hits three Wheel Scatter symbols or fills the entire nine-spot grid with the same symbol. The Multiplier Wheel spins and offers multipliers of 2x, 3x, 5x, 7x, or 10x.
As with any 3×3 game, it requires patience. High volatility requires players to sit through some blank spins in anticipation of the wheel spins. They can be quite lucrative.
Meanwhile, the music is jazzy and the colors are calming.
