Diamond Dogs Review
Diamond Dogs is a true “Dogs gone Hollywood” type slot. Diamond Dogs is a 5 reels and 25 pay lines slot powered by NetENT. The slot came out in 2010 and considering this the graphics and sounds are pretty decent for the time. If you simply adore dogs with all their little quirks and habits then Diamond Dogs is the perfect slot for you.
The slot comes with a Return to Player rate of 96.50% and players can win up to 1,200 times their bet during the free spins feature. You can start your gameplay from as little as 0.25 per spin to a maximum of 50 per spin. The coin size variation makes this slot ideal for anyone who’d like to spin longer for less.
Diamond Dogs can be played on all devices from desktop to mobile and tablet devices. If you’ve ever wondered what goes on in the mind of your beloved furry companion, Diamond Dogs is definitely worth a try.
Look & Feel
It truly is a dog’s world in Diamond Dogs. Not only are all the symbols dogs or dog accessories but even spinning the reels awards you with a bark. The name of the game says it all, the whole design is based on the furry creatures and a lot of bling. In a way the slot will totally remind you of the movie “Beverly Hills Chihuahua”. The movie tells the tale of a glamorous Chihuahua that lived the high life one minute and the next she was fighting for scraps with the rest of the street dogs. Quite a cute movie to watch, and if you’ve seen it you’ll immediately make the connection between it and the Diamond Dogs slot.
The backdrop of the reels can barely be seen but from the looks of it, it happens to be a black background used for Hollywood Photo-shoots. The reels are diamond plated and diamond studded. The wild symbol of the slot is the Gangster wannabe boxer and the Scatter is the ultra-feminine Chihuahua. The bonus symbol of the slot is the paparazzi dog with a camera in his paws. The high value symbols include a luxury dog house, a VIP fire hydrant for instant relief, and a glorious steak in a bowl with champagne on the side symbol and of course a delicious bone wrapped in a blue bow. The low value symbols are gold plated dog tags with card icons carved into them, rounded of by diamonds.
While some might say it’s over the top, the rich look and feel of the slot truly depicts the lifestyle of the rich and famous. Not everyone will find this slot enjoyable, it might just be a little over the top.
Sound & Score
The soundtrack of Diamond Dogs includes a cheesy, romance soundtrack that seems to work quite nicely with the theme. Each time you spin the reels a dog will bark and there’s this other random sound that doesn’t really make sense. Overall, the soundtrack is fine for the first few minutes but after a while you’ll be glad for the Mute option. While dogs are known as man’s best friend and loved by all, there’s only a certain amount of barking any human can handle.
Bonus features and Gameplay
The wild of this slot is the gangster looking boxer with the massive “wild” medallion hanging from his gold chain. The wild substitutes for all other symbols except the Scatter and Bonus symbol. Any winning combinations formed with a wild will provide higher pay-outs.
The Scatter Symbol:
The Scatter Symbol is the prissy Chihuahua in her white fur coat and an overload of pink bling (think Legally Blonde). The scatter triggers the free spins with added multipliers. Landing 2 scatters on the reels will rewards you with an x2 multiplier, 3 scatters get you a 4x multiplier and 10 free spins and 4 scatters provides you with a 25x multiplier and 10 free spins. Players lucky enough to land 5 scatters on the reels simultaneously will cash in on a 100x multiplier and 10 free spins!
The Bonus Game:
Landing three or more bonus symbols triggers the Click Me bonus game. During the bonus game there will be 12 dogs lined up on the red carpet. Your duty is to take a snapshot of as many dogs as you can. If the photo comes out perfectly you’ll be rewarded with a cash prize, these prizes may vary depending on the dogs. The bonus game only comes to an end when you take an out of focus black and white image of one of the dogs.
Is it worth playing?
Yes! If you are a dog lover who enjoys quirky games of the furry creatures living the life of the rich and the famous then you will enjoy this slot. It is quite fun to play paparazzi for the furry creatures especially since you can cash in on 1,200x your bet during the free spins round.
