Who could say no to an invitation to join a Mexican fiesta? This celebration is a Diamond Fiesta, giving way to a series of classic icons representing this stunning theme. A quick glance at the skeletal character dancing with a woman to kick off the game gives you a good idea of what is to come. Is the experience living up to the promise, though?
This is the latest new game to be released by Realtime Gaming, a leading light in the online casino industry. They rarely disappoint with new slots and this one looks promising as well.
RTG is always reliable when it comes to practice versions of their games. We get the chance to try this in demo mode first as well.
The fiesta mentioned in the title is a massive clue to the Mexican theme going on here. The opening image for the game makes that theme obvious too. It’s highly enjoyable and one to appreciate for its colors and presentation.
The format is great, as you’ll soon see, even if it has a familiar feel to it. The design itself is packed with color, offering a reel set that sits between two sides of a Mexican street. Cacti, bunting, and string lights all add to the charm.
There are five reels involved in this slot, with three symbols cropping up on each when the reels stop spinning. The game does involve jackpots, but these are not shown on the main screen. They can appear during a special feature we’ll come to shortly.
The skeletal figure in the opening image is a wild icon and he can appear on all the reels except for the first one. He can also replace most other symbols apart from the scattered skull and the diamond. Well, there were always going to be diamonds in this game, right?
The game works with fixed paylines and you get 50 to bet on.
With 50 lines that must be covered, it becomes even more important to choose a wager that fits with your risk level and preferences. Fortunately, RTG does provide a good collection of options in this area.
Or… you could read on to find out about them here. It’s still wise to explore the paytable though, as there are lots of things to read about there.
This is triggered when you find six or more diamonds anywhere in view on the base game screen. You then receive three respins with all the diamonds you found frozen in position. If a diamond appears in a corner of the grid, the respins are reset to three once more. If you manage to fill all four corners, the reels expand to reach a six-reel format. This can occur twice more, eventually taking you to an 8 x 4 grid on the screen. This is the Expanding Reels feature.
Once your respins are complete, you’ll watch as all the diamonds reveal a prize amount. There are four jackpot amounts, and the smallest two can appear anywhere in this feature. however, to be in with a chance of winning one of the two largest jackpots, you must have reached the largest 8 x 4 grid format.
No, you get the chance to find some of these as well if things go well for you. Just three scattered skulls are required to grant six free games. These place additional wild skeletons, scattered skulls, and those important diamonds to the reels. If you find another three skulls during a free spin, a further three freebies are added to your remaining total. You’ve also got an increased chance of triggering the bonus during these spins, as there are more diamonds in play.
This is typical of new slot releases from Realtime Gaming, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise.
This gets 9 out of 10 from us, thanks to the free spins with a twist and of course the respin feature. The diamonds mentioned in the title sure are very important to look for as you play this game.
If you reach the Jackpot Diamond feature, then you do have the chance to go for one of those four jackpots. Aside from that, the biggest single prize is worth 800x your line bet, which is a good prize to go for.
This is the ideal way to get started, especially if you play long enough to get through to the free games and to trigger the respins. This would give you greater insight into the special portions of the game.
This medium volatility game has lots to offer, and once you’ve experienced most of the features in the demo, we think you’ll likely want to check out a few spins of the real version too.
This includes Android and iOS, with no app needed to access the Diamond Fiesta slot at all good RTG casinos.
