The reels of Frozen Diamonds reveal a mesmerizing ice plain and diamond symbols on the reels, whose natural shine is amplified by the coat of crystal ice around them.
The choice of colors used on the game symbols creates a pleasant spectrum for the eye as the starlight from the clear sky pours down on the reels. As you watch the reels spin you might be tempted to take the first flight north and end up close to the North Pole, watching at the night sky as Aurora Borealis plays tricks with your imagination.
Frozen Diamonds has top notch visual effects which can be compared to any video pokie game from the leading software providers in the industry.
If you’ve ever played in Microgaming casinos that use the Quickfire platform, you might have noticed some pokie games that don’t quite fit the general Microgaming pattern. There’s a big chance that those games are coming from Rabcat Gaming, as they are fused with the Quickfire platform.
This is a great partnership between the two companies, as Rabcat can offer their pokie games to a big number of operators, while Microgaming can refresh their pokies offer with some new titles. For now this symbiosis works like a charm and we hope to seem more new pokies from Rabcat Gaming come online soon.
How to Play
For this game the designers at Rabcat decided to go with a standard 20 pay line design, which features 5 reels and 3 rows on the screen. This means that the bet size on Frozen Diamonds can go from the minimum $0.20 up to $40 per spin. The total bet size can be adjusted by manipulating the Stake size and the Auto Play button will give your hand a chance to rest for up to 500 auto spins at a time.
At first look Frozen Diamonds doesn’t look like a game that has a lot to offer in terms of features. There is no scatter symbol that would trigger any bonus round, but a very modern and attractive design is used. All wins that are formed on the reels will drop down the included symbols and make way for new fresh symbols to land on top of the reels.
This Free Fall design became the most popular when Gonzos Quest was launched, which is one of the most popular games by the great provider Net Entertainment. The reason why this Free Fall design is so attractive to most players, is the fact that with only one regular spin, several consecutive winning combinations can be formed, increasing the overall payout.
But on Frozen Diamonds this design has an even better meaning as it triggers the free spins bonus round. You will need to land 3 consecutive wins on the reels in order to trigger the game feature. A random free spins number is awarded, but it can be only 5 or 10, so always hope for the second number to appear.
During the free spins, 2-3 wilds will be added to the central third reel and after every third consecutive win an extra free spin will be awarded. But this extra free spin is played separately from the standard ones, only after they are over.
The reason for this is that in these extra won free spins a fixed number of 3 wilds will be added to reel number 3 and all payouts will be doubled. If another set of 3 consecutive wins lands, another extra free spin will be awarded with the same number of 3 fixed wilds and doubled payout.
We couldn’t find any specific information on what the maximum payout of Frozen Diamonds actually is. Judging by the pay table, wins ranging over 500 x total bet are really hard to trigger, as the highest paying symbol, Wild, awards only a 50 x total bet payout, for 5 of them on a pay line. During the extra free spins this value would be 100 x total bet, but win ranging anywhere from 50-70 x total bet are more realistically to be expected.
We had a chance to try this game for a decent number of spins and we can say that Frozen Diamonds seems like a great video pokie game to play for real money. Our balance increased to over 150 x total bet after several free spins rounds which came very often. A low to medium variance pokie, which can provide medium payouts in the bonus round on a regular basis.
