Introduction

Diamonds consists of a draw area of 5 reels, a large display panel for information and winnings and game control buttons. There icons are divided into a 4/3/4/3/4 reels configuration.

Each icon consists of 2 parts; the outer colour (3 available) and the inner symbol (9 available).

There are 40 fixed predefined lines that connect the icons from left to right. The lines serve a two-fold purpose:

  • 3 or more identical and consecutive symbols from left to right starting from left most reel on a win line qualifies for a payout as defined in the paytable. All symbol wins are counted first.
  • When all symbol wins have been registered, there will be a check for corresponding background colours along the win line paths. When 5 matching colours appear left to right on a win line path; a “reaction” is created. This means that all of the icons associated with the “reaction” will disappear (coloured backgrounds and inner symbols). New icons will drop in to the vacant spaces with new symbol/colour combinations.

After a reaction occurs and the 5 icons have been replaced, the Win line Multiplier will increases by 1. This means that any win after the icons have been replaced from the reaction will now pay x2 (Reaction and Jackpot wins not included). Previous wins not disturbed by the reaction will also be paid x2! If (in the same game) another reaction occurs, the 5 icons involved the reaction will be replaced and the win line multiplier will increase again by 1. All subsequent wins will then pay x3 and so on…

When there are no more reactions and all wins have been registered, the game will end. Any winnings will be paid immediately into your account .If you win, your account will be credited immediately.

If you lose, you will lose the amount bet for the respective game.

The game has 40 fixed win lines - one unit of bet is used for each line played, because each line can win separately in its own right. Wins on different lines are added.

How Do I Win?

Symbol wins

If you have 3 or more identical and consecutive symbols from left to right starting from left most reel you will receive a payout as defined in the paytable. See: Paytable for full details. It is possible to have multiple icon wins in a single game.

If no reaction is present any symbol wins will be paid in accordance with the paytable and the game ends.

A breakdown of any icon or reaction wins will be displayed in the winnings display, which is situated on the right hand side of the play area and displays 3 sets of wins. If the game had more than 3 wins, hovering the mouse over the winnings display will scroll the panel to display the other wins from the game.

If the game contains a large win or multiple individual wins which add up a large total winnings a special win animation will play.


Reactions and the win line multiplier

If 5 matching coloured icon backgrounds appear consecutive and left to right on a win line, it is termed a “reaction”. When this happens all of the Icons (including the background colours) involved with the reaction will disappear. New Icons (symbols and colours) will descend from above in to the vacant spaces with new icon/colour combinations. Each reaction will pay  x2 the bet per line used for the respective game.

After a reaction (or a number of reactions) has occurred and all of the blocks have been replaced, the Win line multiplier will increases by 1.

This means that any icon wins in the draw area after the blocks have been replaced from the reaction will now pay x2. Previous wins not disturbed by the reaction will also pay x2.

If more reaction/s occur after the icons have been replaced from a reaction, the icons involved in the reaction/s will be replaced and the Win line multiplier will increase again by 1. All subsequent wins will then pay x3 and so on…

When there are no more reactions and all wins have been registered, the game will end.

Any winnings will be paid immediately into your account. To play again, follow the steps from the start of the: How to play section.


Rules for reactions and win line multipliers:

  • A reaction is created by 5 matching coloured icon backgrounds appearing consecutively and left to right on a win line.
  • If a reaction and a symbol win occupy the same win line then the win line will be paid first before the reaction
  • Each reaction is paid x2 the bet per line used for the respective game and this amount is added to the line winnings to give the total winnings.
  • If more than 1 reaction is present at the same time, all icons involved in all reactions will disappear at the same time and each reaction will be paid x2 the bet per line used for the respective game.
  • If more than 1 reaction is present at the same time, the win line multiplier will only advance by 1 - irrespective of the number of reactions
  • It is possible for the same icon/background to be simultaneously involved in more than one reaction. X2 the bet per line will be paid for each reaction
  • Win line multipliers do not multiply any Jackpot wins.
  • Payouts for reactions are “one off” in nature and are not subject to win line multiplier payouts.

The Triple Progressive Jackpot

The progressive Jackpot icon is connected to 3 progressive jackpots. Which progressive jackpot is won depends upon the number of icons that appear anywhere in the draw area at the same time (known as a scatter).

3, 4 or 5 Jackpot icons appearing anywhere at the same time in the draw area are required to win.

  • 3 Icons = Mini Progressive
  • 4 Icons = Midi Progressive
  • 5 Icons = Maxi Progressive

Progressive Jackpots are available in real play only. Matching coloured block background multipliers do not multiply any Jackpot wins.

  • The seeds (or starting values for the respective jackpots) are: Mini=$20, Midi=$800, Maxi=$24000
  • You may only win 1 of each jackpot per play; any further wins of that jackpot will not award a prize.
  • It is not possible for two players to simultaneously win the jackpot: the jackpot is locked when it is being won, this means that no other bets will be accepted for it, so only one player at a time is able to win it; the first player would win the jackpot and the second attempt would be unable to place their bet as the jackpot amount that they are playing for has decreased.
  • If the player's bet is greater or equal to the minimum qualifying bet then the following contributions will be taken from the bet and added to the jackpot Mini=$0.01, Midi=$0.01, Maxi=$0.01
  • The jackpot contributions shown above are the same for all total bet amounts (above the qualifying bet), and the chance of winning any of the jackpots is the same for all bet amounts above the qualifying bet.
  • Winning a progressive jackpot neither contributes to, or is affected by the daily cumulative winnings limit.
  • Contributions to the jackpot come solely from BCLC. BCLC calculates the contribution based on a players bet being greater or equal to the minimum qualifying bet.
  • To qualify for the progressive jackpot you must have a minimum total bet of $0.80.
  • Jackpot, reaction wins and win line wins are all added together to give the total win

Payouts

Payouts for 3 or more identical and consecutive symbols from left to right starting from left most reel on a win line (except scatter*). Payouts are in multiples of the line bet.
