Hope Diamond Slot RTP, Details & Wager Limits

The Hope Diamond slot is played with 5 reels, 4 rows and 40 paylines. Winners are created by landing 3 or more matching symbols or wilds on a payline, starting from the leftmost reel (reel 1)

The settings here are intuitive and easy to use like pretty much all slots in the Blueprint Gaming catalogue. Click on the banknote to adjust your best size. Stakes range from between 20p and a whopping £500 per spin. For autoplay, click on the arrows below the spin button. You can run up to 100 autospins if required, complete with adjustable win and loss stop limits.

This diamond mind is quite an explosive one. The volatility is in the medium to high range. The Hope Diamond RTP of 96.51% is better than average of 96%. When it comes to payouts, the most you can win is 500 x your total stake per spin (by filling the reels with the highest value Hope Diamond logo symbol and/or wilds).

Hope Diamond Theme – Audio & Design Features – go digging for diamonds  

Hope Diamond slot base game

Glossy, high spec design is a given for a Blueprint Gaming title and the Hope Diamond slot delivers. The setting is a diamond mine. There’s a cartoonish quality to the visuals which are impressively done.

As is the soundtrack. It’s a banjo heavy and really fits the theme. It gets even more madcap in the bonus round and really ramps up the intensity. As we’ve come to expect from this developer, the design here really hits the target.

On the dark reels, you’ll find brightly coloured royals as well as a miner’s lamp and pickaxe and a cart full of gems. Next come the female miner Hope and her pit pony. The most rewarding standard symbol is the Hope Diamond logo which pays 25 x your stake if you land 5 on a payline.

The dynamite sticks symbol is wild. This replaces all the standard symbols and also delivers payouts of up to 25 x your total stake per payline.

You can go digging for treasure on all devices including desktop, tablet and mobile. Smartphone play is terrific. The sound and visuals are great, even on a small-screen device. With the balanced gameplay, the Hope Diamond mobile slot is a very playable one.

Bonus Features in Hope Diamond

Slots from Blueprint Gaming usually sit at 2 extremes when it comes to gameplay. They’re either super simple affairs or stacked full of an enormous range of extras (take Ted for example). Unusually, Hope Diamond sits somewhere in the middle.

There’s a decent variety of extras on offer here but it’s not drowning in overcomplicated features. There are randomly triggered modifiers as well as our old friend, the streak respin bonus. We’ll start by looking at the base game modifiers.

Modifier features

The modifier features can strike at random on any spin. You’ll be offered the choice of 3 diamonds. Choose one to reveal which one of the following quartet of modifiers you’ve been awarded.

  • Big Bang Dynamite Wilds feature: a random selection wilds will land on the following spin
  • Colossal Dynamite Wilds feature: a block of wilds can turn up to 9 positions wild
  • Explosive Dynamite Wilds feature: these added wilds explode to turn adjacent positions into wilds too
  • Diamonds Forever feature: this guarantees you’ll trigger the feature round on the next spin

Diamonds Forever feature

Hope Diamond slot Diamonds Forever feature

The Diamonds Forever feature is triggered by landing 6 money scatters on the same spin. They lock in position and 3 respins are awarded. If a new scatter lands, it too locks in place and the respins counter reset to 3.

The feature ends when you’re out of respins or you’ve filled the whole of the reels. All the money values attached to the scatters are added together to give you a final award.

Diamond Spins feature

To the left of the reels, you’ll see a Diamond Trail meter. Each time a scatter lands, it’s collected in the meter. Once you have amassed 100 scatters, you’ll trigger the Diamond Spins feature.

You’ll then get 3 spins to collect as many diamonds as you can, complete with their attached cash values. These payout on each spin, rather than just the final spin.

Hope Diamond Review Summary – this jewel mine shines

I’ve sometimes been a bit overwhelmed with just how many features some Blueprint Gaming slots have. Some offer 13 different extras! They’ve got the balance just about right with the Hope Diamond slot with a decent blend of modifiers to spice up the base game and a couple of triggered streak respin rounds.

Those respin features can be well worth landing too. The variance here in on the north side of medium so take some care as you can expect some big swings. The cartoon design is as impressive as ever and the catchy backing track has earworm potential. Put all together and Hope Diamond has the potential to be a real gem of a slot.

If you want to mine for riches, the Bonanza Megaways slot by Big Time Gaming is the best game to play. It offers an abundance of bonus features, wins of up to 20,000 x stake per spin and is the most popular Megaways online slot.
