Return to the roaring 1920s bootleg era on the slot from JustForTheWin powered by Microgaming’s Quickfire platform. Deco Diamonds Deluxe will take you back the time when people would dance the Charleston and sip on prohibited alcoholic beverages in smokey backstreet bars. The luxurious retro game comes with respins, a Boost feature and a 3-tiered Bonus Wheel that can lead to wins of up to 2,339 times your bet.
Deco Diamonds Deluxe is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 9 fixed paylines. Wins are awarded for two to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. Get into the swing on desktop or mobile from 0.10 to 50 credits per spin. Activating the Boost feature will raise the bet range to 0.15 to 75 credits. The game has very high volatility with an RTP of 96.03% in default mode and high volatility with an RTP of 96.12% in Boost mode.
Set in front of a luxurious background in lush red and gold, the game window impresses with stunningly crisp graphics and smooth animations. Diamonds dominate the reels, appearing as its own symbol and attached to most other symbols. A catchy Charleston tune is the main audio that will get you swinging while spinning!
Traditional fruit symbols decorated with small diamonds – cherries, plums, lemons and melons – feature at the low end of the paytable, awarding 5x to 12.5x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed by fully stacked premium symbols – bells, sevens and diamonds. Hit five on a line to win 25x to 100x your stake.
The Deco Diamonds Deluxe logo is the wild and top-paying symbol, substituting for all other symbols. Five on a line will pay a huge 1,000x your bet. The symbol has a dual function and also acts as the bonus scatter, triggering the main feature on the game.
If you ever played the original Deco Diamonds slot, then you will most likely know the features as JustForTheWin did not change or add too many new extras. What is new is the Boost feature, which you can activate before the start of any spin. It will add 50% to the cost of your bet and nudge any slot logo scatter/wild into view if it lands just outside the game window, making it easier to trigger the Bonus Wheel. The RTP increases from 96.03% to 96.13% when you activate the feature.
The Re-Spin is triggered when you land two, three or four Deco Diamond Deluxe scatters/wilds on a spin. All reels that contain a scatter will be locked and the remainder spins one more time to potentially land more scatters/wilds. Any further landing will award an additional respin until you have five in view or now new land.
Having three or more scatters on the reels after the initial spin or the respin will trigger the Bonus Wheel once potential line wins are paid. Three scatters will get you the Silver Wheel, four the Gold Wheel and five the Diamond Wheel. The game will start one spin on the respective wheel to award a cash prize. The Silver and Gold Wheels contain a level-up wedge which will take you to the higher-value wheel. The cash prize amounts are different for each wheel – Silver awards from 5x to 80x bet, Gold from 8x to 593x bet and Diamond from 18x to 1,000x your bet.
Well, to be honest, I was expecting a little more innovation or maybe just some new feature to make the gameplay more entertaining or suspenseful. Considering the original was released years ago, the addition of the Boost feature as the sole difference is rather meagre and not a sign of creativity. Overall, the game looks good and play pretty well, and even has some potential for big wins.
