Midnight Diamonds is an online slot, which was originally a land based slot machine game. The game was developed by Bally Technologies who have kept the authentic feel of a land-based slot machine by utilising similar symbols, sounds and effects.
Midnight Diamonds has a classic slot style feel but is played on the standard five reel and three row set up with thirty fixed pay lines spread across the reels. The fixed pay lines mean that all thirty of them are in play during the entire game but the value of the wagers placed on the pay lines can vary. The value of the coins for each pay line range from as little as 0.01 to a high value of 15.00 making the game suitable for both casual players and high rollers.
The Midnight Diamonds Online Slot Symbols
The symbols represent the classic style element to Midnight Diamonds as they are represented by the classic fruit machine symbols amongst others. The symbols include sevens; the traditional bars, cherries, bells, moneybags, dollar signs and a princess cut diamond amongst others. All of the symbols need to land three or more times and from the furthest left reel to the right. The scatter symbols are the only symbols that pay regardless of which direction they run.
The highest paying symbol is the sevens symbol which pays up to 31.5x the stake. The diamond and moneybag symbols pay 21x and 10.5x the stake respectively and the dollar signs and bell symbols pay amounts of up to 8.75x and 7x the stake. The classic bars and cherry symbols will pay up to 5.25x and 4.2x the stake.
Midnight Diamonds Wild Stack Feature
When the Midnight Diamonds stacked wild symbols appear on the first, third and fifth reels the stack feature is activated. Before any winning combinations are evaluated an additional one to three wild symbols will be added to random positions on the alternative reels. Once all the wild and stacked wilds are in place the winning combinations will be evaluated and paid. During the stack feature and the main game the wild symbols will replace any other symbol apart from the bonus symbols.
The Midnight Diamonds Wheel Bonus Feature
The Midnight Diamonds wheel bonus feature is activated when three of the bonus symbols appear at the same time on the first, third and fifth reels. The screen will display a wheel, which will spin by clicking on the spin button. When the wheel comes to a stop it will award prizes which can either be multipliers of anything between 5x and 60x the total stake or a number of free spins. The amount of free spins awarded can be eight, ten or twelve which come with 5x multipliers.
The Free Spins Bonus Round
The Midnight Diamonds free spins bonus round is triggered during the wheel bonus feature. An award appears above each reel during the free spins bonus and if at any time a diamond symbol lands on a centre position, the award above the reel is awarded. The awards range from multipliers to extra or expanding wilds. All wilds remain in position for the duration of the free spins but none of the other bonuses can be triggered until the main game resumes.
