Free Play Diamond Strike Slots - No Spam - No Pop-up Ads
Some slots are instantly recognizable. There’s a myriad of reasons this can be the case! For some, it’s as simple as having really memorable graphics, or a cool theme. Others are distinct in how they play thanks to a special feature or two. And then there’s always the games that make your mouth water with the massive jackpot they offer! Sadly, this release offers none of these fantastic qualities. It’s a rather dull and utterly generic entry into Pragmatic Play’s library of slots.
If you were hoping to find some stellar visuals here, we’re afraid we’ll have to disappoint you. The background is completely static, and alternates between blue and black. Meanwhile, the symbol designs are just fruits, bells, lucky sevens and diamonds. There’s nothing here that we haven’t seen a million times already. And it’s not like the developer went out of their way to make them look stunning, either. It is average visuals with a boring theme, which results in an overall negative experience.
You play Diamond Strike on a 5x3 board with 15 paylines, which pay left to right only. Available special features include a Jackpot Bonus and a free spins round. Free spins come with no additional mechanics, but you can trigger the Jackpot while playing them. Meanwhile, the Jackpot special feature has you clicking through various diamonds and uncovering their colours. Three icons with the same colour being revealed will award the associated jackpot!
Pragmatic Play gives you two ways of setting your total bet. The first option is to use the plus and minus buttons next to the Spin, which adjusts the value directly. You can also use the drop-down menu that appears, which lets you change coins per payline and coin value. No matter which of these two methods you use, you can wager between GBP 0.15 and GBP 75.00 on each spin. This is a good betting spread, which should satisfy both casual players and high rollers.
This game comes with a medium variance, which means a good balance of frequent wins and solid jackpots. While we prefer high volatility a little more, medium variance is still a great choice for any release. That said, we’d have liked to see a better jackpot. Right now, your maximum prize is only 1000x your total stake. It’s not bad, but we’ve seen a lot better. The RTP is set to 97.02%, which is a whole percentage point above the current industry average.

Collect three Scatters in the first, third and fifth reel to win eight free spins. It is possible to retrigger this special feature, and earn additional extra spins that way! There’s no upper limit on it either, so cross your fingers and hope you get lucky! During free spins, extra diamond Wilds are added to the board, increasing your odds of scoring wins. That said, there are no additional mechanics in play while the extra turns are being played.
Find three golden lucky sevens to trigger the Jackpot Bonus. A separate playing field appears, with sixteen diamonds visible. Clicking each one swaps its colour to match one of the four fixed jackpots. When you collect three diamonds of a single colour, you win the associated jackpot. These include the Blue Mini, Green Minor, Red Major and Pink Mega jackpots.
Honestly, we were looking for any saving grace when it came to Diamond Strike. But it’s just so awfully boring in every aspect, we were surprised! This is coming from the same Pragmatic Play that gave us a lot of excellent slots. Compared to those, this game is an absolute waste of time. Save yourself the trouble of even trying this release. Leave it in the rubbish bin where it belongs.
