One of the most common questions asked by slot players is, “Do the lucky diamonds work in the casino games?” The short answer is no. The “lucky” or “lottery” label was first applied to the slot games in the 1950’s. Many slot players are under the impression that all slot machines in casinos must offer a chance of winning a specific number. This is not the case.
Online slots games use the same basic paytable and same features and same symbols as Bell of Fame or Gift Box slots. Only the symbols used are different. Lucky Diamonds casino games have 3 reels and a single payline, much like the others.
In a lucky three reels or sequence of spins, there are a number of coins in play at any given time. The game progresses through the spins until a player lands on a red or black square. When this happens, the game is over. At that point, all the coins in play on the previous spins have come out and the new top prize is the one who lands on the square marked with a black star. The exact details can vary slightly for some of the online slot machine games.
The wild symbol bonus where one “hit” will earn you a prize regardless of how many wild symbols are on the screen is one of the most popular games in the slots business today. The bonus offers a winnings limit of a predetermined amount and are characterized by the appearance of a wild symbol amidst a group of regular letters. These bonus rounds usually do not last very long due to the random number generator. A standard casino slot machine would need to mechanically accept and handle all winning combinations. Lucky Double and Wild Symbol bonuses require a different set of rules and therefore do not allow for any pre-determined pattern.
Bonus games like Lucky Diamonds and Lucky Stars allow players to use up a set number of coins before the “lucky” symbol bonus is triggered. The coins are placed in a reservoir that is kept by the bonus game and used on a single spin for a prize if the player hit the lucky symbol. Like the wild symbol bonus games, this feature does not allow for pre-determined patterns but relies solely upon luck. However, this feature is subject to change should more research be done into the game’s random number generator.
As with all other slot machine games, the jackpot involved in a lucky diamonds slot machine is dependent upon the amount of spins that are performed during the course of a single game. There are various methods that may be used to determine the specific jackpot number such as the number of coins that are placed in the reservoir. However, with a little luck, a player may be able to increase their chances of winning big amounts of money from these slot machines.
