Yggdrasil, a leading publisher of online casino games, has announced the release of its latest slot, Diamond Symphony DoubleMax. The company teamed up with Bulletproof Games to deliver this music-themed slot that will keep you dancing to the tune as you rack up the wins.
It’s a 5-reeler with 20 bet lines where gamers only need to match 3+ symbols to receive a reward. The LED music icons are the low-value symbols, rewarding gamers with 0.2x to 2x the stake. These symbols are joined by the jazz horn, guitar, and piano, which can pay up to 5x the stake.
The faceless music instructor is the game’s wild, replacing other paying symbols except for the scatter when he appears. He can also come with a payout of 1x, 5x, or 10 for three, four, or five. And players must be on the lookout for the shiny diamond scatter, which has a similar payout to the wild.
After forming a winning combination, the game’s Cascade+ mechanic will activate. This will see all the winning icons disappear from the reels and new symbols fall into their place. During this feature, Yggdrasil’s GEM (Game Engagement Mechanic) DoubleMax can allow gamers to win up to the maximum payout of 20,000x the stake by triggering the rewarding free spins mode. The DoubleMax GEM will add an increasing multiplier of 2x for each cascading win, with a maximum of 256x.
Meanwhile, the Cascade+ mechanic in Diamond Symphony DoubleMax can trigger a trial of bonus spins. It chains all wins as players move up the trail, enhancing their position. A player gains more free spins at the start of the round if they achieve a higher status on the trail.
As that continues, players can win 7-15 free spins, depending on their trail position with the Cascade+ mechanic. The free spins are then used on a mini-game that resembles the legendary Wheel of Fortune. Note that the DoubleMax multiplier is maintained between spins during the bonus rounds, providing multipliers greater than 1,000x.
Players in some jurisdictions can enhance the frequency of hitting the bonus thanks to the Encore mode. However, this comes at an extra cost of 50% of their stake. This will turn two trail-losing positions into respin positions. And, of course, Diamond Symphony DoubleMax offers two Buy Bonus choices for gamers to buy 7 or 15 free spins for 100x or 200x the original stake.
Mark McGinley, Yggdrasil’s Chief Gaming Officer, commented:
“Our DoubleMax GEM has proven to be a firm favourite amongst players and we are delighted to have worked alongside the team at Bulletproof Games to deliver yet another thrilling slot release. We’re confident Diamond Symphony DoubleMax will be music to the ears of operators and players alike as it lands in casino lobbies in the days and weeks to come.”
Michael Bullock, Product Director at Bulletproof Games, added:
“The excitement levels for Diamond Symphony DoubleMax is at an all-time high amongst our team here at Bulletproof. This sensational slot has some brilliant features and mechanics and we expect it to perform exceptionally well.”
