Quickspin Aim to Take Players Back to the Roaring 50’s with New Diamond Duke
May 12th saw the release of Diamond Duke, the latest in a long line of slot machine from Quickspin. Dubbed a colourful concoction with classic gameplay, this one was always going to cause quite a stir. Diamonds, sevens and cherries paired with modern symbols and immersive features aim to take you on a nostalgia trip, although, the winnings on offer are anything but ancient – how does 8,100x your bet sound?
The Swedish software specialist have released just five titles this year and the of all that have come before, this is the one we were excited to get our hands on. Featuring a 3×3 reel engine in a 50’s classic style, Diamond Duke is extremely volatile with thrilling mechanics.
Inspired by American diners, pancakes, jukeboxes and shakes, this game will take you back to the heyday of America’s fast-food living with its super valuable diamond symbol, two bonus wheels, multipliers and its pick and click bonus.
Bjarne Grönnevik, Producer: “Diamond Duke is a real nostalgia trip that combines our first classic 3×3 slot with extremely high volatility! It’s a great testament to our versatility as it is expanding our portfolio with something completely new and unique, both in terms of the graphics and the math.
This game was designed with our ‘portrait first’ approach, to give players the best possible gaming experience on mobile devices. Our main design philosophy was that when you pick up the phone to play, it should feel like you’re actually holding a physical object in your hand – and I think we’ve really achieved this.”
First Look at the Game
A superb soundtrack (which is reminiscent of a glamorous diner from yesteryear) will soothe your soul as you spin the reels. Despite there being a one-arm bandit lever on display, all you need to do to start playing is press a big orange button. Two-wheel scatters awards 1 bonus wheel whilst three awards a spin of both the bonus and the multiplier wheels. Multiplier wheel does what it says; multiplies your win by 2x, 3x, 5x, 7x or 10x. There is another way of landing this wheel without the use of scatters; filling the entire reel grid with the same symbol will also work.
The bonus wheel awards either a multiplier of 2x, 3x, 5x, 7x or 10x or the pick and click bonus; here there are coin wins to be had across three stages. Stage one offers wins of between 2x and 7x your bet. Stage two boosts wins to between 3x and 15x your bet and stage three offers wins of between 5x and 100x your bet in an instant. Be wary of the red and white cross as this is the collect button which ends the feature.
Diamond Duke is available to play for free in demo mode and for real at Casumo.
