Diamond Mine Megaways
Howdy partners! Blueprint Gaming’s Wild West prospecting game, Diamond Mine Megaways slot has gold in its sights – with cascading symbols and unlimited win multipliers for those hardy folks who can take on the harsh climate, the rough company and the banjo music!
Diamond Mine Megaways slot is not your usual pay lines game. Here the good old outdoor action is powered by the very popular Megaways mechanism licensed from Big Time Gaming.
The Diamond Mine Megaways slot is set in a cartoon desert world with a mountain rising behind the reels. Prickly cacti sit on either side of a potential gold rush on the reels. We wouldn’t say the graphics are up there with the likes of NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest slot, but they are pretty good.
The background to play is a merry clanking of pick axes breaking rock to try to find the gold hidden in those dusty hills! Listen out for the braying of mules and some up-tempo banjo play- this game comes with all the right sound effects that set the scene.
Diamond Mine Megaways Game Play
The Diamond Mine Megaways slot comes with six reels with a seventh row that comes into play – depending on the size of the icons that land. With the Megaways mechanic, there are up to 117,649 Ways to Win.
This is a game from Blueprint Gaming – those slots wizards who are behind the Fishin’ Frenzy slot and Ted.
It’s a motley group of mining paraphernalia that make up the high-value icons of play, with a big diamond offering the biggest reward for players. If you’re lucky and land six diamond symbols on adjacent reels, you will trigger a 50x your wager reward.
The other high-value symbols to watch out for are a gnarly white-haired miner, a hurricane lantern, and crossed pickaxes.
The Wild is a bundle of lit dynamite which substitutes for all icons except the Scatter which is the sack of gold no less! But beware, that explosive Wild only lands on the special top row of the frame and is part of the crazy cascading symbols feature.
The Ace through to 9 of the card deck make up the lower value symbols of play.
Diamond Mine Megaways comes with one of my favourite features, cascading symbols. Just land a winning combo on the reels and the winning symbols are shot off the reels. All the icons will cascade down to make a new combo which could make you further wins- this potentially lucrative feature will keep going until it stops producing wins for you.
And better still this feature is also active in the free spins. I haven’t had this much excitement since I played the Jack Hammer slot which is another good ‘un.
For those of you who love a surprise, then keep an eye out for the Mystery Symbol which is a barrel of explosive TNT! This icon isn’t going to have you running for cover, when it lands it transforms into another icon to try to make you winning combos.
It’s in the Free Spins feature of Diamond Mine where you can potentially make your ‘prospecting fortune’. Land four Scatters across the reels and earn twelve Free Spins.
For each further Scatter you land, you gain five free spins. Within the feature itself, Scatters only land on that special top row, but if Luck’s on your side and you land three or four Scatters there are five or ten additional spins for you!
This is where the cascading feature becomes more lucrative. On each of the cascade wins you manage, a 1x multiplier is notched up on each further win.

The Diamond is the top payer. Makes sense!
What is the Wild Symbol?
The Dynamite symbol is wild and can land on the horizontal top reel, and substitute for all regular symbols.

The Monkey Verdict
The Diamond Mine Megaways slot is a cracker. This game isn’t the most complex of slots, but with the cascading symbols, the Mystery Symbol and the progressive multiplier potential it’s worth a spin.
If you like this game why not have a spin on the other slots in the series, the original Diamond Mine slot, Diamond Mine Extra Gold and Diamond Mine 2.
