Cool Diamonds II
Cool Diamonds II Slots
Gems based slots got a real boost in popularity with the presence of mobile phone games based on gems play. Cool Diamonds II starts with the solid slot gaming which Amatic specializes in – and combines with sharp graphics and lively sound effects. Symbols are different gems, along with gold and a diamond ring. In a change up from regular slots, winning combinations do not need to start on the left hand reel, 3+ in sequence can start from 3 and 4+ wins can start from reel 2. There is also a free spins bonus round, and the chance to win some huge prizes by covering all 5 reels in the same type of symbol.
While the gems do have detail in the light reflections, which tries to make them sparkle – to my eyes these seem a little flat compared to those from other slots. There are animations when wins are highlighted, where the gems glow. While these are quite effective, it is hard to argue that the design is anywhere near the best in this niche.
Symbols include Diamonds (naturally), rubies, sapphires, emeralds, a stack of gold bars, diamond rings and chest full of treasure. I’m always happy to report that there are no playing cards in a slot game – and there are none in Cool Diamonds II.
