Retro Diamond Glitz

Retro Reels Diamond Glitz is a non-progressive online slot by Microgaming. It features five reels and twenty-five paylines as well as scatters and free spins.

While its looks might show an appreciative nod to the classic fruit machines of old, it’s certainly not stuck in an 80s time warp when it comes to its top payout. The maximum coin jackpot stands at a massive 200,000 which is far more than many of the latest; state-of-the-art online slots have to offer.
Playing Retro Reels Diamond Glitz needn’t break the budget, as you can take it for a spin for as little as 0.01. If you’re going in search of the highest payouts, you can choose to play with as much as 125.00 per spin.
Its retro look is clear to see, from the neon-lit game title at the top of the screen to the symbols on the reels. Microgaming have taken things a step further by designing the slot to look like a physical Las Vegas fruit machine. For this reason, the buttons along the bottom of the reels are made to look like a 3D model that makes you want to reach out and touch the buttons rather than use your computer mouse.
While the Retro Reels part of the slot name is obvious by the cherries, sevens, bells and bars symbols. The Diamond Glitz suffix is equally clear thanks to the use of shiny, silver diamonds and dollar signs. The most generous of all the symbols is the dollar sign, and if you’re betting with the max and five of these appear on an active pay line, you’ll win 10,000 times your bet.

Wild Symbol:

There is no wild symbol in Retro Reels Diamond Glitz.

Scatter Symbol:

The scatter symbol is “5 Free Spin Bonus” and if three or more appear anywhere on the reels, you’ll get five free spins for each scatter in view. Two or more scatters also pay out a prize, offering x2, x5, x40, and x100 for two, three, four, or five-of-a-kind.

Free Spins Round:

Three or more dollar sign trigger the free spins feature, and you can receive as many as 25 free spins if five scatters activate this round. During this feature, all wins are doubled, and there’s the potential to snare 440,000 coins if the reels fall in your favour.

Re-spins Feature:

Microgaming have given players the option to re-spin any of the reels at any time, for an extra fee, of course. It can be extremely useful if, for example, you’re one symbol short of a winning combination. Although it isn't a guarantee, you’ll get a win by using the re-spin feature, so it’s up to you whether or not to use it and how frequently.

Our Verdict:

The Retro Reels Diamond Glitz slot offers a combination of nostalgia and modern technology. While there’s no bonus round or wild symbol, the payouts can be extremely generous, and with twenty-five pay lines and the re-spins feature, those dollar sign symbols might well leap off the reels and into your pocket.
