This Diamond Dazzle game from Rival software is relatively new, but is a 3-reels 3-rows game and playing with only 1 payline, reminiscence of the classic old mechanical slot machines of decades ago, more popularly known as the 'one-arm bandit'. Why a one-arm bandit? Well, it has got only one arm, the pull lever, and is a blardy bandit for stealing all your money and coins! But once in a while, you do become the hunter instead, and get a nice reward for catching the bandit in action. Ah, those were the days of mechanical slot machines and fruit machines. The strength needed to pull the lever for hours on end, and the sound of the reeling wheels keep playing in your head even at bedtime. Oh gees, those devilish machines! Hahaha.
Nowadays, all you can get are simulated sounds, of the reels spinning, plus a nice soft background music to keep you entertained, but be aware though, all those things would never stop anyone from fuming up. These digital electronic machines are no less devilish than their mechanical counterparts! And losing players would still have smoke billowing out of their ears. Ah, but not to me. These machines will never get me billowing smoke, because their bigger 5-reels brothers do all that to me! Gees!
The paytable in the game is fairly straightforward. It's a diamonds and gems game, so all icons are of them, from white diamonds to coloured gems. The highest paying symbol is the Grey Diamond, the Scatter symbol, paying 1500 coins for getting all 3 of them on a 3-coins bet, or 500x the total bet amount. The White Diamond is next, paying 600 coins, the coloured gems paying from 450 to 120 coins, and also combination wins of 90 to 9 coins. 500x the total bet is the maximum win possible, so this is an average paytable. All win values indicated are for 3-coins bet per spin, but you can play with 1 or 2 coins bet per spin, with correspondingly lower payouts.
Well, I've never been a fan of any 3-reels games, not even back in those early years of mine, so I only play them for a very short time, just to get a feel of the game. My first ever play on this Diamond Dazzle game went quite okay, getting empty spins and small combination wins, ranging from 3x to 10x my bet amount, but my balance was noticeably going down. I kept on going for just a little longer, before deciding to move on, but 3 Green Gems suddenly came on line and paid a nice 80x win. It was the third lowest paying symbol, that Green Gem, but on a 3-coins bet per spin, it paid a nice 240 coins, boosting my credits slightly above my starting balance. So what do I do next? I quit! Hahaha. These kind of games can only be fun and worthwhile playing the 'hit-and-run' style. Stay and play, and everything will vanish away. You can take my word on that! Hehehe.
