Retro Reels – Diamond Glitz Slots

Retro-Reels-Diamond-GlitzDiamond Glitz is one of the Retro Reels slot machines, a collection of games with modern layouts and features, but with a classic inspiration. Each one has a different theme, and in this case we get diamonds combined with the classic angle. There are some innovative features, which few other modern slots offer, but the game remains classic inspired, as you will notice from the design. Microgaming is the company that offers these slots as part of their collection.

With slightly more paylines, 25 being available, Diamond Glitz also offers bigger prizes of up to $50,000. The features are the same ones though, with Respins, scatters, multipliers and free spins offered.

Features of Retro Reels – Diamond Glitz

The features of the Retro Reels slots are largely the same, with the Respin option being the one that is offered by few other slots, while the scatter symbol, the free spins and the multipliers are much more common.

The slot’s only special symbol is the scatter, with the Free Spin Bonus Logo on it. This scatter awards the free spins, but it also guarantees you a prize at the same time. You need only two or more scatter symbols to get paid by them, with a bigger number being preferred since payouts get even better. Depending on the exact number of symbols, you can win between 2x and 100x the triggering bet.


Glittering Free Spins

While cash prizes require 2+ scatters, the free spins need at least 3 to be present. For each bonus symbol of this type, you get 5 spins for free. With 3 to 5 symbols on the reels, your reward will vary between 15 and 25 spins for free


All wins that you get during these free spins will benefit from a 2x multiplier. Retriggering free spins is possible as well, the same 3+ symbols being needed.

Respin Reels

The option to Respin the reels that don’t have the symbols you need is there. You will notice buttons and numbers placed underneath the five reels. If you have some of the symbols needed to form a combo, but not all of them, you can click on Respin for the reel where you’re missing one, pay the amount mentioned next to it, and the reel will spin again. If you land the symbol you need, the combo forms and you get paid.


It can be an option used to improve an existing combo, turning a payout for three symbols into one for four symbols. It is also a bit of a wager and it depends on your luck, since you pay money but you’re not guaranteed that something will come out of it.

Betting options and jackpots

You can use the same number of coins per line as in the first title of the series, 20, but the denomination can now go up to $0.25, so the line bet is at $5 and the maximum bet at $125.

In exchange for the wagers of up to 500 coins, you can win 10,000 times the line bet, meaning 200,000 coins or $50,000 cash.

Design and symbols

The layout and design of the slot is largely the same as in the other games from the series. The symbols have changed though, now using diamond themed icons as well, besides the other classics. The same aluminum look that was used for the other games is also used here, giving it a bit of a retro look.


Symbols: Free Spins Bonus (scatter, 100x wager), Dollar Sign (10,000x), Three Diamonds (500x), Two Diamonds (500x), One Diamond (250x), Three Bar Diamond (250x), Two Bar Diamond (250x), One Bar Diamond (250x), Red 7 (250x), Blue Bell (250x), Cherry (200x), Mixed Diamonds (100x) and Mixed Bars (75x).

Is It Worth Playing?

If you want to wager more, and win more, Diamond Glitz is better than the first slot of the Retro Reels series. It’s about the same in every other way though. I suggest you look at the third title to get even more features.

Retro Reels – Diamond Glitz can be found at any Microgaming casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
