Diamonds of Egypt Overview
Egyptian themed games are a dime a dozen, but somehow they keep releasing new games using this theme. And so Pragmatic Play released a new game called Diamonds of Egypt.
The reels are set against the pyramids. And we will see different basic Egyptian symbols and a female explorer.
The game uses 5 reels that are each 3 symbols high and uses 243 ways instead of paylines.
All standard symbols can appear stacked on all reels. There are also wild symbols and scatter symbols on all reels. Wild symbols also count as scatter symbols on this game. And there is a special wild symbol on reel 3.
Diamonds of Egypt comes with a maximum payout of 2.500 times your bet and is a medium to high volatile slot game.
Diamonds of Egypt Features
On reel 3 there is a special chest symbol. This counts as any normal wild symbol but comes with a multiplier of x5. This will be applied to all winning combinations it’s part of.
When at least one wild symbol appears on the reels, this Jackpot Bonus might trigger at random.
You will find a screen with 12 different pots. Pick pots to match 3 of the same and win the corresponding jackpot. These are Mini, Minor, Major and Grand and are worth 10x, 20x, 100x and 1.000x bet respectively.
Free Spins Feature
3 or more scatter and/or wild symbols from left to right, starting on reel 1, will award 8 free spins.
During free spins all low paying card symbols are removed from the reels.
3 or more scatter and/or wild symbols during free spins will award 8 more free spins.
To be honest, Diamonds of Egypt is a very generic game. Especially the theme. It’s the most basic Egyptian theme you can find. And we’ve seen this theme so many times before.
Then we have the gameplay. It’s fine, but nothing special. A jackpot game and free spins with no low paying symbols. Again nothing new. And add the fact that maximum payout is also lower than most Pragmatic Play slots and you get a pretty basic game.
Maybe hardcore fans of Egyptian themed slots will enjoy this one, but for me it’s a bit of a throwaway.
