Retro Reels: Diamond Glitz was released to MicroGaming casinos on January 11th 2011, and it is the second slot in the Retro Reels series of online slots. I really enjoy playing the first Retro Reels slot and so far I am enjoying Diamond Glitz as well.
This new slot features 25 paylines, free spins, and the respin feature which made its debut on the first Retro Reels slot. Diamond Glitz is similar in style to the first one, but there are a few noticeable differences besides the obvious different symbols. There are 5 more paylines and it takes 3 scatters instead of two to trigger free spins.
You are awarded 15, 20, or 25 free spins when 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols land on the reels during a spin. You can also use the respin feature to try for 3 scatters when two land, but you can’t try for more after that because you are automatically taken to the free spins feature. Free spins can be retriggered.
As with the first Retro Reels slot, and all others that have it, the respin feature must be used carefully (if you use it at all, there is no need though it can be tempting). Trying to spin in a third scatter symbol is both expensive and not usually worth the gamble. The best time to use this feature is when there are lots of similar symbols on the reels, since you get a mixed pay for the different bar symbols and diamond symbols, while trying to line up 5 of a kind of one of those symbols. Having the mixed pay symbols is very handy for winning back the expensive bets when respinning.
See the screenshots below for paytable information, and hopefully soon I can add a nice winning screenshot to the mix. Play this great new slot yourself at any of these MicroGaming Casinos today.
