Bonus Features in Diamond Force

If you’re looking for a slot that offers something slightly different as far as gameplay and bonus features is concerned, then you’ve come to the right place in Diamond Force. Special spins are key to the action in the Diamond Force slot.

Team-Up feature

The main extra in Diamond Force is the Team-Up feature. You’ll see that the 4 members of the Diamond Force can land in stacked formation up to 3 symbols high. Land 3 or more fully stacked Diamond Force members to trigger the round. You could land 3 of the same character or 2 or 3 different characters. As long as there are at least 3 stacked characters, you’ll activate the feature.

You’ll then head to a new set of reels. The number of reels in play is determined by how many stacks you had on the triggering spins. For example, 3 stacked Diamond Force members = a 3 reel machine.

This new 3-row machine is made up of credit awards and multipliers. Precisely what’s on offer depends on which symbols triggered the round. The multipliers can be 2x, 3x or 5x. A spin on the new reels is made. All the credit values are added together. If you land any multipliers on this spin, the credit awards are boosted by that amount.

If you land more than 1 multiplier on a Team-Up spin, these values are combined. For example, a 10p credit value win that included 2x and 3x multipliers would be boosted by 6x to give a payout of 60p.

Team-Up Bonus Spins feature

Appearing on reel 5 only is the scatter symbol. Land this in stacked formation as well as 2 or more stacks of Diamond Force character scatters on the same spin to activate the Team-Up Bonus Spins feature. You’ll then receive an initial 3 free spins on a new set of reels. Again, the size of these reels is determined by the symbols from the triggering spin.

As well as the credit amounts and the 2x, 3x and 5x multipliers, you’ll also see +1, +2 and +3 spins symbols. Land these and that number of extra free spins is added to your total. This can take your free spins up to a maximum of 20.

Diamond Force Slot RTP, Details & Wager Limits

The base game action in Diamond Force takes place on a 5 reel, 4 row, 1,024 ways to win machine. Land a winning combination by landing 3 or more matching symbols on adjacent reels. They don’t have to start from reel 1 either.

Stakes start at 10p per spin, rising to a maximum of £10 per spin. The RTP is 96.53% which stacks up rather well compared to many other slots. You can set autoplay to run from between 10 and 100 spins. You’ll also have the chance to set loss and win limits if you wish.

If you like volatile action, then the Diamond Force slot should appeal. The variance here is high. You might go through some dry spells but there is the chance to get on a roll in the Team-Up Bonus Spins and really the multipliers moving. You can win up to 13,175 x your stake on each spin or free spin.

Diamond Force Theme - Audio & Design Features - superhero inspired

Considering there’s a futuristic theme in play here we were slightly disappointed with the design of Diamond Force which feels a little dated.

With the skyscrapers of a big city in the background, you’ll see A to J royals as well as the 4 members of the Diamond Force. These spin in stacks that are 3 symbols high. There’s also a wild, the white diamond, which can appear on reels 1 and 5 only.

The stacked character symbols don’t have the sharpness that you’ll find in a slot from developers ELK Studios or Thunderkick for example. It’s all decent enough but doesn’t have much of a wow factor. It’s a similar story with the backing track which is packed full of bangs and bleeps without being particularly catchy.

The interface is okay but not great. The 3 lines settings tab will take you to the paytable. It’s not the easiest to navigate. You have to click, hold and scroll to read all of it, rather than just click.

Diamond Force Review Summary  - 13,175 x stake wins

Marvel slots have been off the scene for a few years now. There’s certainly a gap in the superhero-themed slot market. Diamond Force doesn’t quite fill it. The Team-Up feature is decent enough and the Team-Up Bonus Spins feature offer some potential – up to 13,175 x stake per spin/free spin. We weren’t bowled over by the design or the gameplay though.

On the plus side, it’s a volatile slot which makes it a good pick if you like high variance. Diamond Force is quite a good slot if you factor in the win potential – I would have like sharper graphics and animations to make it really stand out. Still, if you like the theme and volatile gameplay, it’s still worth giving it a look.

If superhero slots are your thing, Playtech offer plenty in their DC Comics range – Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League would be my 2 recommendations.
