Diamond Cascade Overview
Pragmatic Play loves to release games that use gems as a, sort of, theme. Games like Jewel Rush and Little Gem – Hold & Spin. And now a new title, called Diamond Cascade, also uses this, to be honest, pretty boring theme. So I won’t talk more about the theme, since there is none.
The game uses 5 reels that are each 5 symbols high and comes with 50 lines.
There are all sorts of small and big gem symbols, but also scatter symbols and wild symbols on all reels.
Diamond Cascade comes with a nice maximum payout of 8.000 times your bet and is a high volatile game.
Diamond Cascade Features
Color Tumble Feature
To be honest, this feature is the main focus of the game, even in free spins. But is a bit stranger than most features.
When you get a winning combination, clusters of 5 or more symbols, anywhere on the reels, that have the same background color, will explode and the symbols are collected in a meter on the right.
All symbols still on the reels, will drop down and new symbols will fall on top. But the winning symbols on your payline, will not be removed.
This keeps happening unless there is no more winning combination, or no more cluster to collect.
Each time you have collected 20 symbols because of these explosions, a multiplier will go up by x1, x2, x3, x4, x5, x6, x7, x8, x9, x10, x15, x20, x25, x30 or x50. The multiplier applies to the total winnings from a spin. After no more new pays or explosions are possible, all is reset back to x1.
Free Spins Features
3 or more scatter symbols will award 15 free spins.
The only difference in free spins is the fact that the multiplier doesn’t reset between spins and can only go up.
3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols symbols during free spins will add 5, 10 and 15 free spins respectively.
For 100 times your bet you are able to buy the free spins feature.
You are able to activate ante bet for 25% your stake. This will increase the chance to get scatter symbols.
I will start with the theme. There is none, which I feel is a shame, because this is a pretty unique game with some cool features. And I think a nice theme would have lured more players that this basic gems thing.
The features are nice. It’s a bit of a strange game and will take some spins to get it, but once you do, it’s pretty easy. The only thing I really dislike, and a better theme might have improved this, is the fact that the background colors are all very ugly and almost the same shades, so most of the time I can’t even see which clusters will explode.
Overall Diamond Cascade is a unique and fun game. But the theme might discourage you to give it a try. I suggest, do give it a try and you might be happily surprised.
