Our second AE Player Insider Game Guide this month focuses on Bally’s glamorous and glitzy game Shadow Diamond.
Shadow Diamond is a traditional slot game with five reels and 40 paylines for players to win on. There are a few fun bonus features found in Shadow Diamond, but before we get into those let’s look at the pay symbols found in the base game! High-paying symbols include the Shadow Diamond logo, a beautiful woman, a handsome man, and a glittering diamond necklace. Medium-paying symbols include a diamond ring, a glitzy watch, a citrine opal, a sapphire, a ruby, a pink diamond, and an emerald! All pays are adjacent on an active payline and read left to right.
The first bonus feature we are going to take a look at is the Super Stacks Feature. Each reel contains mystery symbol positions that are randomly replaced with one of the following symbols before each reel spin is initiated: the logo tile, the woman, the man, the necklace, the ring, the watch, the opal, the sapphire, the pink diamond, the ruby, the emerald, and a white diamond. All mystery symbol positions on a reel are replaced with the same symbol per spin, but the white diamond only appears on the second, third and fourth reels.
The other bonus feature found in Bally’s Shadow Diamond is the Hot Spin Feature, which is a little different than Hot Spin Features found in other games. This Hot Spin Feature is initiated when a full stack of the white diamond symbols appear on the second, third, and fourth reels. The player will be rewarded with seven Hot Spins and presented with a collection of white diamond symbols to choose from. The player picks one to reveal — either the woman symbol, the man, the diamond necklace, the ring, or the watch. During the remainder of the Hot Spin Feature, all mystery symbol positions will be replaced with the selected symbol.
Shadow Diamond is a perennial favorite of slot players everywhere, thanks to its glitzy and glamourous graphics, and the fun bonus features found in the game. Have you played Shadow Diamond before? Let us know in the comment section below!
