Villains everywhere are trembling in their boots because this month sees the appearance of a new team of superheroes. Diamond Force, a new online slot from Microgaming creative partner Crazy Tooth Studios, is set to launch this month.
Set to be as exciting and intriguing as Blackjack online, the new game is steeped in the tradition of comic book and movie heroes with special powers. Everything, from the artwork, to the music, and from the special effects, to the bonus features, is designed to be familiar to fans of the genre. Even if the theme is not something players usually choose, from what we have seen so far, the slot, which offers a maximum win of 131,754.00 credits, is bound to win over a few new fans.
Superheroes In Action
According to Microgaming’s partner studio, the design of Diamond Force was inspired by comics and movies such as those produced by DC, Marvel, and other brands. The soundtrack also has a touch of Hollywood about it, as it was inspired by the cinematic compositions of John Williams and Hans Zimmer.
Of course, the new online slot is not about looking at awesome graphics and listening to cool compositions, instead, it is about spinning reels for chances to win payouts. Diamond Force has 5 reels and 1024 Ways to Win. The game pays either way, left or right. The only condition is that like symbols land on adjacent reels.
The special features, namely the Team-Up Feature and Team-Up Bonus Spins, involve the superheroes and the reels, which change structure – but more on that in a moment.
Meet The Team
The Diamond Force reels feature 4 character symbols, 4 lower-value symbols, and 2 special symbols. The playing grid itself is in the air, high above a modern metropolis.
The characters include a female blue hero, a green hero that could have been inspired by the Hulk, a male red hero, and a winged purple hero. All the higher value symbols pay the same, which is 0.2 times your bet. The lower-value symbols include A, K, Q, and J, and like the higher-value icons, they all pay the same. Regardless of how many of them form a winning combination, they pay 0.1 times your bet.
If you look closely, you will see that each colourful letter features a reflection of the city below. The special symbols include a diamond and gold Wild, and a Bonus icon with the faces of the 4 superheroes.
How The Features Work
The most familiar feature on the Diamond Force reels is the Wild, which can substitute for higher and lower-value symbols to help create winning combinations. The other features of the new online slot, however, will be less familiar to players.
The Team-Up feature triggers when 3 or more superhero symbols, which cover 3 blocks each, land. The feature transforms the reels into a set of 4. The new reel set features the triggering characters’ special abilities, which include 5x, 3x, and 2x Multipliers, and higher value payouts. The reels will spin once, and any payouts won will be multiplied by any Multipliers that land in view.
The Team-Up Bonus Spins feature triggers when at least 2 superheroes land in view and the Bonus symbol lands on reel 5. The feature also sees the reels transform, but this time, you will get 3 Bonus Spins to start with. Those spins also could see high value payouts and Multipliers land, and what’s more, reel 5 could also produce as many as 20 additional Bonus Spins.
Bets And RTP
There are no paylines to select on the Diamond Force reels, but the new slot does allow some flexibility when it comes to betting options. You can choose from various coin values, which allow you to play the game for anything between the minimum of 0.10 credits, and the maximum of 10.00 credits, per spin.
A simulation of 10 billion games indicated that the overall RTP of the slot is 96.53%, and that the hit frequency is 32.23%.
You will not need to wait much longer to meet the members of Diamond Force yourself. The new slot is set to launch at All Jackpots Casino on the 14th of April 2020.
