Playtech's Diamond Valley Pro Video Slot Review

June 7, 2013

 

Diamonds are a classic symbol of wealth, and that makes them an excellent theme for a video slot that pays out big prizes. Diamond Valley Pro is the sequel to Playtech's Diamond Valley progressive slot, but it doesn't use a progressive. Instead, it uses a very balanced payout scheme that includes a 10,000x jackpot. Despite this big top payout, this game has a low volatility overall, so you won't have to worry about weathering huge losing streaks over and over again. Diamond Valley Pro is a great game for people on a budget who are looking for a chance to win a big jackpot.

Diamond Valley Pro uses a five-reel video slot layout with three symbols showing on each reel. This game has a total of 20 paylines, and uses coins that range from $0.01 to $0.50 each. You can bet with up to 10 coins on each individual payline for a minimum bet of $0.20 per spin and a maximum bet of $100 per spin with all of the paylines activated. To maximize your chances of hitting multiple wins on the same spin, it's recommended that you play with all paylines activated even if that means you have to play with a smaller coin size.

The setting of this game is a desert valley, so it makes sense that the cactus symbol is wild. Five of the cactus will get you a 10,000x jackpot payout, so make sure all of your paylines are activated to boost your chances of winning this big prize. The scatter symbol in this game is the vulture symbol, and five of them will get you a secondary jackpot worth 4,000x. These are some nice top payouts for a game that has such a low variance.

There are bonus symbols that show up on the first and fifth reels as well. Pick up both of them at the same time, and you'll get a set of free spins based on a second screen bonus feature. You'll be randomly given some number of free turns combined with a multiplier. This multiplier gives you even larger payouts, and the highest multiplier available is 10x. With the ability to win up to 20 free spins with a 10x multiplier, you could see some really huge payouts in a short amount of time. Overall, Diamond Valley Pro is an excellent game with great prizes.
