Mining may not seem to be an obvious theme for an online slot machine but in fact it offers a rich seam of ideas and creativity; Diamond Mine Megaways is a good example, it’s developed by Big Time Gaming and it comes with some clever features and a helpful extra row.
Diamond Mine Megaways is a six reel slot with up to seven rows (depending on the size of the symbols) and a potential 117649 ways to win; the reels spin on a wooden structure built into the entrance of a mine in some remote, North American location.
The four high value symbols comprise a large diamond, the bearded miner, a lamp and crossed pickaxes/shovels; 9, 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
The stick of dynamite is wild and it will replace all others to help form winning combos except for the bag of gold scatter symbol; the wild only appears on the top row and here the symbols slide in from the right hand side.
Diamond Mine uses cascading symbols which means that each winning combo will disappear and be replaced by new ones falling in from above; these can then make new combos and this process continues until there are no more wins.
TNT Mystery Symbol
The barrel of TNT can appear anywhere on the reels and each time they do they’ll all transform into a matching symbol to try and help you out with a win.
This is triggered by landing at least four of the scattered bags of gold anywhere in view for which you will receive an initial twelve free spins; any extra bag will award another five spins so there are plenty on offer here. During the spins the bags of gold only appear on the top row but landing three or four there will award five or ten extra spins respectively.
The Cascading Symbols are active here also but now the multiplier for any wins will increase by 1x for every cascade.
Diamond Mine is a slot which brings some extra zip to the mining genre; the gameplay is very enjoyable but we’ll admit that we always like the cascading reels feature which contributes to that enjoyment. This game comes with an RTP of 96.43% and if you’d like to try something similar, have a go at BTG’s Extra Chilli.
