Diamonds of Fortune is a 5 reel, 10 payline jewel-themed slot from Novomatic. Available on desktop, tablet and mobile, it comes with a quartet of mystery base game bonus features and also offers a shot at a huge win via the progressive jackpot. Stakes range from between 40p and £50 per spin.

Considering the theme here is gemstones the design here isn’t exactly dazzling – the plain black reels include 10, J and Q playing cards which award 1, 2 or 10 times your total bet and K and A which pay 2, 4 or 20 times your stake. They’re joined by red and green stones which offer payouts of 4, 10 or 30 times your stakes followed by the blue stone which pays 6, 20 or 40x.

Best of the lot is the white diamond – 3, 4 or 5 of these in combination awards 10, 30 or 50 times your total stake. Winning lines don’t have to start from reel 1 – if you land 3 matching symbols on a payline on reels 2, 3 and 4 or reels 3, 4 or 5, you’ll still get paid.

There aren’t any wilds or scatters on offer here – instead, to help you on your winning way, are a quartet of randomly triggered bonus modifiers which can hit on any spin:

  • Rewind feature – 1 or more reels will nudge upwards to create a new winning position.
  • Fast Forward feature – this does the same as the rewind except the reels nudge down. Again, a new winning combination is created.
  • All Symbols Pay Scatter feature – all symbols will pay scatter style. That means that they don’t all have to be on the same payline to create a winning combination. At least 3 of the same symbol anywhere on the reels will create a winner.
  • Domino Symbol feature – 1 symbol will be chosen at random and will topple around the reels. Any symbol it lands on will turn into the same matching symbol, guaranteeing a new winning combination.

Diamonds of Fortune also offers a shot at winning a progressive jackpot payout. Just like the quartet of base game extras, the jackpot is triggered at random.

The design here isn’t particularly flashy and the range of features isn’t the most thrilling. The payouts are decent enough though. On the volatility scale, this sits in the low to medium range. We’d be hard pushed to describe Diamonds of Fortune a thing of beauty – it’s solid without being spectacular. If you’re after more thrills, you’ll find plenty of alternatives in the Novomatic stable – like the epic Kingdom of Legend.
