Diamond Progressive Review

Diamond Progressive is a 3 reel 1 payline slot by Betsoft, and it’s the simplest classic slot possible. No free spins, multipliers or other special features. But this modest looking slot does come with a special twist – there’s a progressive jackpot to the game.

How to Play

While it does have a progressive jackpot, Diamond Progressive has the feel of a pretty simple, old school slot, without any bonus rounds or free spins. You have 3 reels and 1 payline in the center, which is highlighted in yellow so you can’t miss it. Everything is listed on the screen, including the symbols and payouts. It’s hard to get lost.

The controls are going to feel a little different though, especially if you’re used to video slots. So here’s a step by step guide:

1. Adjust your coin size in the red square button on the bottom left – it goes from £0.02 to £1.

2. Adjust the number of coins you would like to bet by pressing on “Bet One”. Then you’ll see line saying “Bet” on the screen above the coin size button change.

If you want a chance at the jackpot, you will need to bet 3 coins. A shortcut to setting 3 coins is just to hit the red “Bet Max” button. This only affects the number of coins you bet, and not the coin size.

3. Hit the “Spin” button.

4. After each spin, you have to set the “Bet” button again, before you can spin again.

The symbols are familiar and are listed with their values on the screen, but here they are anyway:

  • Diamond
  • 7
  • Triple Bar, Double Bar, Bar
  • Cherries

Like with the traditional one armed bandit, you win when you score 3 of the same symbols on the payline in the center. The more coins you bet with, the higher the payout. The jackpot can only be won when you are betting with 3 coins.

Jackpots

The progressive jackpot can only be won when you bet with 3 coins, and land 3 Diamonds on the payline. When betting with 2 coins, 3 Diamonds will get you 2,000 coins, and when with 1 coin, then you’ll get 1,000 coins.

Special Features and Bonuses

There are no special features in Diamond Progressive, except for the progressive jackpot.

Graphics and Sounds

Let’s just say no one is going to play this slot for its animation effects. You’re sitting in front of a slot machine with its quaintly recognisable whir and hums.  It’s not that it’s ugly, but it from a visual perspective, this is a straight up classic slot and the graphics will feel a little bit dated.

Conclusion

Diamond Progressive is a nice slot for players who enjoy the simplicity of classic slots yet are on the hunt for bigger bounty. There is just 1 payline and there are no special features, free spins, bonuses or multipliers, but when you bet max, you can score the progressive jackpot and walk home with a few grand or more.
