- The lower value symbols are glossy J to A card symbols, paying out 0.1x for 5 of a kind.
- The high-value symbols are the game's four superhero characters who all seem to have distinctive characters but have no value differentiation. All of these symbols pay out 0.2x your stake for 5 of a kind.
- The wild symbol is a diamond with the word WILDemblazoned across it in capital letters and stands in for all other symbols except the scatter.
- The scatter is a 4 symbol-high stack featuring the heroes faces and the word BONUS. This symbol only appears on reel 5 and helps trigger the bonus game.
- Team-up reels
The game's superhero symbols are 3 symbol-high stacks and if 3 of these stacks appear on the reels, the Team-up feature is triggered. The game grid changes, shrinking to exclude all reels that don't have superhero symbol stacks on them. Each character comes with particular bonus items; either credit values or 2x, 3x, and 5x multipliers. The modified reels spin and the credit vales and multipliers that appear combine to give you a potentially sizeable win.
- Team-up bonus spins
If the special stacked scatter appears on reel 5 along with at least 2 hero stacked symbols, you will trigger the free spins feature. The game grid changes, leaving only the reels with special stacks and you receive 3 free spins upfront. Credit amounts and multipliers appear on the reels as well as +1, +2, and +3 symbols that give you up to a maximum of an extra 20 free spins if you can land them right.
Microgaming has produced another great looking slot in Diamond Force, but some problems lurk beneath the surface. The visuals are undeniably eye-catching, etched out in bold comic-book style and the game's animation and music are perfectly matched and executed. The RTP of 96.53% is generous and pairs well with the high volatility of the slot which offers an impressive-looking 13;175x your stake as the slot's maximum win potential.
The game's features feel fresh and new, reimagining classic bonus features to add a sense of novelty. This title's challenges creep in when you consider the low values that the game's symbols offer for combinations and the fact that while the theme is visually impressive, it hasn't been fleshed out beyond the game's appearance to include any kind of story or depth relating to the characters. Diamond force certainly starts strong and makes a good first impression.
The gameplay is fun and appealing; however, it is a few faults short of being an amazing slot.
