Make a bet in Athens
Making a bet is a two-step process, as is often the case in the newest slot games in town. First, choose your bet per line from a range of £0.01 to £10.00 and then bet that amount on between 1 and 50 paylines. Those wishing to pull in some serious diamond wins can simply hit max bet, making a wager of £500! Then you can simply spin to win and watch out for those wilds, free spins and super stacks.
Bonus features galore
There are plenty of bonus features in the game, which is what makes it so alluring, on top of the excellent graphics. This includes the wild, a symbol which says 'Diamond Bonus' and pays out on its own accord of 500x your stake should you get six in a line. On its own, however, it substitutes for all symbols except the free spins symbol. The free spins symbol only appears on reels 2-5 and can mean up to 16 free spins. The final bonus feature is the super stacks symbol which also substitutes for all symbols and also expands to cover a whole reel to truly maximise wins.
Summary review of Diamonds of Athens
Ancient Greece is a common genre in the world of slots
and some may even say a bit overused, but High 5
's Diamonds of Athens
has set itself apart for the usual Zeus theme. Instead it brings back the legends of Cyclops and the Minotaur, two of the best stories to come out of Ancient Greece. The super stacks feature is also excellent and everyone loves a few free spins. The game is missing a separate mini-game bonus feature, but that does mean it's easier to just get on with the base game without distraction.
