Mining doesn’t immediately come across as a subject which would provide for an engaging online slot machine but regular players will know that this is not the case. There are loads of mining-themed games and easily enough for us to have picked our top five which you can see here. Diamonds Down Under adds to that list, it’s from Rival Gaming and you can read about it below.
Diamonds Down Under has five reels and fifteen paylines and to be specific it’s theme is diamond mining in the Australian outback. The environment is a rocky desert one but there are also hints of Aboriginal culture on display here – check out the bars above and below the reels.
The main symbols are Australian and include a road sign, a beer can, a koala, a kangaroo, a crocodile, a lizard a boomerang, diamonds and an Australian chap complete with corked hat.
The pickaxe represents the wild symbol and there are two scatters – an Aboriginal guy and a treasure map – which activate their own bonus games.
A number of free spins are available here and to trigger them you will need to land three, four or five of the Aboriginal chap anywhere in view. For this you will receive the following:
- Three scatters – ten free spins
- Four scatters – twenty free spins
- Five scatters – one hundred free spins
Three or more scatters landed within this feature will win you the respective number of extra free spins and every win during this round will be subject to a 3x multiplier.
This is where you get to dig for diamonds and to trigger this feature you will need to land three or more of the treasure map symbols anywhere on the reels.
As you can see from the video above, your task is to select locations on the map and hope that there are diamonds there. Once you’ve made your choices the miner will hack away at the rock and a mine cart full of diamonds will roll towards you, revealing your prize.
Rival Gaming do these cartoon-style slots quite well and this is good fun. It doesn’t seem too tough to trigger both of the features which is always good news and once you’ve turned the sound off you should enjoy this game.
