Diamond Fruits Megaclusters Slot Review
Diamond Fruits Megaclusters is an exciting new title from the maker of Bonanza Megaways.
It uses Big Time Gaming’s new game mechanic, Megaclusters to offer you prizes of up to 6,650 times your bet.
It also boasts a generous 96.23% RTP and is advertised as a medium-to-high variance video slot.
The game brings together traditional fruit machine graphics and 21st-century gameplay through its four special features. As well as using Megaclusters, Diamond Fruits Megaclusters has Reactions, a Free Spins Bonus, a Wild Cannon Bonus, and win multipliers.
The slot is designed to be played on desktops, mobiles, and tablets, but if you want to experience the 3D graphics and playing experience in all their glory, a bigger screen is preferable.
Thanks to the Megaclusters game mechanic, it’s possible to create winning combinations of 25 symbols or more. To make this easier, there’s a wild symbol that can replace all other symbols. The special features are also a little simpler to trigger as they don’t rely on a bonus/scatter symbol.
To find out how to play, what you can win and how the special features work, carry on reading our Diamond Fruits Megaclusters review!
How to play
The layout of Diamond Fruits Megaclusters is a little different to what you might expect from a typical 5-reel slot. Although there are still five reels, not all the positions on the reel set are unlocked. So, you’ll notice that some positions are empty while others can be populated with up to four miniature symbols in a 2×2 format.
Before you get started, you’ll need to decide how much you wish to wager on each spin. Simply click or tap the “Stake” button and pick one of the following choices: 20p, 40p, 60p, 80p, £1, £2, £3, £5, £10, £15 or £20. Note that you can increase or decrease your stake between spins.
Due to recent changes in how games developers can design their games to encourage responsible gambling among UK players, there is no Auto-Play option, so you will need to spin the reels manually using the big green arrow.
Within the game’s menu, there is a selection of tabs that let you view the paytable, turn the music and sound effects on or off, and read the help files.
The symbols on the reels of this game are:
Although the game has no fixed or progressive jackpots, Big Time Gaming state that the max win is worth 6,650 times your total bet which can be achieved on any free spin using the unlimited win multiplier.
Diamond Fruits Megaclusters boasts four special features that can help to enhance the playing experience and potentially bring you extra cash rewards.
Megaclusters is an exciting new game mechanic that was developed by the software developer, Big Time Gaming. It builds on the success of Megaways by allowing you to create wins using clusters of symbols rather than requiring matching symbols to appear from left to right on adjacent paylines.
In fact, Diamond Fruits Megaclusters doesn’t use paylines at all as Megaclusters determines whether a win occurs or not.
To achieve a winning combination, you need to land at least 5 matching symbols (regardless of size) that are touching vertically or horizontally. Obviously, you receive bigger prizes for creating wins using the most valuable symbols, as well as clusters that are larger in size.
Cascades and Reactions
On each spin, the game automatically fills between 7 and 25 positions on the reel set with four smaller symbols or a single large symbol. If a win occurs, each winning symbol is removed and is replaced by four smaller symbols.
When winning combinations are created using the smaller symbols, they are removed from view to allow new smaller symbols to slide in from a random direction to take their place.
If another win occurs, the Reactions continue until no more wins can be formed.
Diamond Fruits Megaclusters features a “WILD” symbol that can substitute for all other paytable symbols. However, they do not pay in clusters and can only replace adjacent symbols.
Wild Cannon Feature
The Wild Cannon Feature is awarded after three consecutive reactions, and it adds a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 15 extra wild symbols to the reels in the hopes of creating a new win.
Free Spins Bonus
You don’t need scatter symbols to unlock the Free Spins Bonus. Instead, you simply need to achieve 7 reactions in the base game.
You receive 8 free spins along with one extra spin for each reaction that occurs after the seventh reaction.
In the Free Spins Bonus only, there’s an unlimited win multiplier that begins at x1 and increases by one following each new reaction.
Graphics and Sounds
Diamond Fruits Megaclusters takes you to a neon-lit location that looks partly like a nightclub and partly like the edge of space!
At the top of the screen, a huge diamond rotates like a glamorous glitter ball while and ambient electronic music pulses from the speakers.
The reels have a clever 3D effect while the fruit-themed paytable symbols look good enough to pick up and eat.
At the bottom of the reel set, you can see the number of Megaclusters that are available on the current spin.
The player controls are located in a horizontal row that runs along the bottom of the screen and here, you can alter your stake and bring up the paytable.
Diamond Fruits Megaclusters is an attractively designed video slot with a dazzling and highly innovative new game mechanic. It keeps you guessing between every spin, and it’s great to see that it contains so many special features. We also love how Big Time Gaming has kept the unlimited win multiplier from the free spins feature of its Megaways game.
You can currently play Diamond Fruits Megaclusters exclusively at Flutter brands like Paddy Power and Sky Vegas.
