Shadow Diamond is an online video slot game created by casino software developer Bally Technologies. The game incorporates 5 reels and 40 paylines into a unique and opulent theme based on the glamour and sophistication of living the city high-life.
The main bonus feature in Shadow Diamond is its free spins feature, which is triggered by stacked scatter symbols and awards players a standard 7 free spins. Before this feature begins, players can also choose which symbol they wish to appear stacked during the feature.
On the reels of the Shadow Diamond online slot are a variety of theme-related symbols. These symbols include pink, red, blue, green and yellow gemstones set against blue velvet cushions, a shining diamond ring, a large diamond necklace and the game’s male and female protagonists, the dark-haired woman featured above the reels and a smartly dressed man.
Game Design and Graphics
Diamonds are a predominant theme in Shadow Diamond, and the game’s design is full of luxury and lavishness. The reels are set against a backdrop of city skyscrapers at night, and the game and its reels are encased in a shining silver and jewel border. A gold pay table perpetuates the theme of wealth. Above the reels on the right hand side is the game’s female protagonist, who occasionally flashes a large diamond at Shadow Diamond players. The reels themselves contain a number of precious gemstones, diamonds and diamond jewellery, as well as the two glamorous main characters, to whom all these valuable gems belong.
Wild Symbol and Jackpot Payout
The ‘Shadow Diamond’ logo is the game’s wild symbol. This wild symbol can substitute for all other symbols in the game, helping to complete winning combinations. The only symbol for which the wild symbol cannot substitute is the stacked diamond scatter symbol.
Like wilds in many pokies at JackpotCity Casino NZ, this wild symbol is also the game’s highest paying symbol, awarding a top payout of 10,000 coins when 5 wilds appear on a winning payline.
In keeping with the theme, a glittering diamond symbol forms the Shadow Diamond slot’s scatter symbol. This scatter appears stacked on the reels, and will activate the free spins feature when stacked diamond scatters cover reels 2, 3 and 4 simultaneously.
Free Spins Feature
Before the free spins game commences, players will be asked to choose from one of the game’s standard higher paying symbols. This chosen symbol will be nominated to be the symbol that appears stacked on the reels of the Shadow Diamond free spins feature. Once the main stacked symbol has been selected, the free spins game will begin, and players will be awarded 7 free spins with which to play. As there are no diamond scatter symbols featured during the free spins, the game cannot be retriggered.
Shadow Diamond Super Stacks Feature
Shadow Diamond features a Super Stacks feature, in which each game reel displays mystery symbol positions. These mystery positions will be randomly replaced with different symbols during the game. All of these mystery symbol positions will be replaced with the same symbol for each spin.
