IGT were amongst the earliest modern developers of classic slot games for brick-and-mortar casinos. Though they also pioneered video slots, their classic reels are by no means passé. Triple Diamond is a radiant example of the everlasting popularity of the original three-reel slot machines with simple bars and bells and the ubiquitous 7s. But the online version of Triple Diamond also has a modern touch to it. The Diamond is the game’s flashy wild symbol that also pays for landing on just one reel.
Triple Diamonds is a classic 3-reel slot with a bit of a modern dimension of 9 paylines. The symbols however, hark back to the earliest days of slots frenzy. They include the very familiar green bars, double purple bars and triple yellow bars, along with the ancient lucky mascot, the number 7.
These more retro symbols mean wild times for slots fans, and the diamond wild can replace other symbols to help form winning combinations. The diamond also has the highest payout.
The game plays out in straightforward, classic fashion. Just press the spin button on the right (we couldn’t find any auto play button), and hope identical symbols land. If they don’t, just repeat. Don’t expect too much from the graphics though. The old slot machines were not high in esthetics but were functional and rewarding.
Don’t miss the multiplier wins with triple diamonds.
Triple Diamond is low-variance slot with a theoretical return to player rate of 96.09%, which is the industry-standard, but quite good for a classic game. With a betting window from as little as $0.09 to as much $900.00, the game is good enough for casual gamers and high rollers. You can buy credits in various denominations including nickels, dimes, and quarters. You can wager up to 45 credits per spin, which makes it 5 credits per line.
One diamond symbol on the reels pays 2 times your bet, while 2 sparklers on the grid will award 10x. If you are lucky to land triple diamonds on the screen, you get 1,199 times your original bet. Three 7s across the reels will give you 100 credits. Then we have the yellow, purple, blue, and black bars, which pay out 40, 20, 10, and times your stake for landing on all 3 reels. If the triple diamonds strike on the 9th payline, you will have hit the top jackpot of 25,000 credits.
The diamond is the wild of this game and acts as both a regular symbol and a wild. As a symbol, it pays twice your line bet, as seen above. When it acts like a wild, it substitutes other symbols to form winning combinations, just like a joker in a card game.
One wild gives you a triple multiplier while a winning combination with two wilds is worth 9 times your original bet on one active payline. As also mentioned above, three diamonds on the reels act as regular symbols and pay out 1,199 times your stake.
Triple Diamond was actually adapted for online gaming with mobile devices in mind. Therefore, the game’s platform is specifically designed around mobile operating systems like Android, Windows, Phone, iOS, and Blackberry, etc.
You can enjoy Triple Diamond on any smartphone and tablet that run on these platforms. The slot is designed in HTML5 and seamlessly adjusts to the small screen. This ensures that the game plays out in full HD clarity and original sound quality, just like on PCs. Just make sure you have reliable internet connectivity, wherever you’re playing from.
Triple Diamond is simply a classic slot, and that includes the minimalistic design and unimaginative reel symbols. The game does not pretend to be anything else, the wild symbol notwithstanding. The wild is actually the most innovative, and lucrative aspect of the game.
Still, the game may not appeal to the newer generation of slot players who are used to sophisticated, feature-rich video slots. But that’s perfectly all right. There are enough classic slot lovers to keep those 3-reels spinning and winning for a long, long, time to come.
