Most of the IGT slot machines that you can find in the multiple online casinos all over the net are based on a low-medium variance model. This means that they pay out more small to average prizes regularly than one off huge jackpots. Of course, this isn’t the case for the Megajackpots titles, which are specially created to pay progressive prizes, but it is true for games like Da Vinci Diamonds and Elvis the King.
However, there is one game out there in the IGT catalogue which is all about the big money. This machine is Diamond Queen, one of the later additions to the brand’s considerable roster of slots. Released to online audiences in the middle of 2019, it was an instant hit with serious players, who instantly took to its big mix of lush graphics and top prizes.
Queen For A Day
Diamond Queen is presented in a standard casino slot format, giving players a 20 pay-line grid set over the usual five reel set-up. This should be familiar to even the most novice players and will quickly endear it to the few people out there who’ve never seen a slot before.
The Diamond Queen theme is clearly based on some kind of fairy-tale land, where magic and mystery still reign supreme. Don’t think you’re looking an old regal battle-axe as this queen is clearly just off her honey-moon – looking slim hipped and sultry in her robes. This first lady form the slot’s wild symbol and can help you make the big money by substituing for other symbols in winning combinations.
The reel art includes poker symbols, page boys and magicians, all created in slightly cartoon like artwork, giving you a big budget movie feeling. This helps add to the atmosphere and excitement as its just a little bit reminiscent of saturday afternoon matinees. This is all helped along by the tinkiling tones of the audio, which sound almost like the noise a fairy wand might make. If you’re starting the think that this could be a game that’s aimed at the girls, then you could well be right.

You Spin Me Right Round Baby
The bonus feature on Diamond Queen is controlled by the special magic scatter. If you hit two of these on the centre reel, then you’ll be paid a special prize – however, if you manage to stop in three of these special scatters then it’s off to IGT’s classic second set of reels where you can really pump in the prizes.
Here you get three free spins. OK, this doesn’t seem like much at first, but you have to also appreciate the fact there is a wild symbol dynamic at play here. On the first spin, the second reel is completely wild. On the second spin, reels two and three are completely filled up with the subsitution symbols, and finally, you’ve probably already guessed it, on the third spin, all three middle reels are full of wild symbols This means that you’re guaranteed some massive wins on both the second and third spins.
You can even grab yourself another spin at the level you’re on by stopping in the special extra spin symbol, which is only available in the bonus game on the first reel. This is the key to the astronomical prizes here.
