Prepare to be dazzled by the reels full of juicy fruit that have large sparkling jewels embedded in them. In this luxurious, elegant art deco setting, the jackpot is no more than a few clicks away! This is a review of the “Deco Diamonds” video slot by Just For The Win.
Art Deco is a style of design, architecture, and visual arts. The name comes from the 1925 international Exhibition of Arts Décoratifs that took place in Paris. To this day, Art Deco is the epitome of glamour, elegance, and luxury.
The jewelry created in the 1920-30-s was characterized by combining noble diamonds with more “common” and extravagant materials, such as enamel, ivory, and glass. Cartier and Boucheron produces amazing pieces using the cutting-edge technology of their time to mount the precious stones in such a way that the fittings were almost invisible, and the bracelets and necklaces snaked across the wrists and necks of their beautiful wearers like flawless silk ribbons. Despite the introduction of a variety of new unorthodox material, diamonds remained the dominating gem and the symbol of the Art Deco style – clean, exuberant, perfect.
“Deco Diamonds” is a 5-reel, 3-line video slot with 9 paylines that pay from left most to rightmost and an RTP of 96,03%.
The lower-paying symbols are the fruit that contains shimmering instead of pits: Cherries (5x win for 5 symbols in a row), Plums (7.5x win for 5 symbols in a row), Lemons (10x win for 5 symbols in a row), and Watermelon (12.5x for 5 symbols in a row). The higher-paying symbols are the Bells (25x for 5 symbols), diamond-inlaid Sevens (50x for 5 symbols), and, finally, large, shimmering diamonds (100x for 5 symbols). The are two types of wild symbols: regular Wild Diamonds and Deco Diamonds which pay 1000x for five symbols in a row.
This bonus feature is triggered if two, three or four Deco Diamonds symbols land on your reels.
