Just looking at the “grid” of Diamond Vortex gives us a wave of excitement. The grid is hexagonal in this game and features cluster pay mechanics. There is a total of three layers to the play area, which amount to 7 reels. You can have 4 - 7 symbols in each one at any given time.

The cluster pay gets triggered when you land 6 or more winning symbols. It’s quite a unique design that doesn’t adopt the traditional reel system. Diamond Vortex presents cool mechanics, multipliers, several wilds, and free spins to catapult you to big wins.
While Diamond Vortex is a feature-packed and uniquely conceptualized game, it doesn’t offer staggering jackpots. The max win is 5,000x your stake, which isn’t bad but also not overly impressive. When you take into account the 96.2% RTP (return to player), the game sits at the medium to high end on the volatility scale.
While there are significant risks involved in a hexagonal grid game, not to mention the element of the unknown, the betting range is set at a regular level and won’t take too much out of your pocket from 0.2 to 100. We will say that you will need the help of the bonus features to get to that 5,000x jackpot, but when you take into account the RTP, betting, and bonuses, you are offered a fair shake at the big win.
The one thing about Diamond Vortex that we can’t get enough of are the bonus features. They are packed full of awesome extras that will satisfy your craving to break out of the mundane slot designs.

Diamond Vortex features more than one wild, and they can sub out all the symbols except for the Zone and Spot. The core wild will stay put at the centre of the grid, and the sticky wilds can appear anywhere else. They will gradually make their way ring by ring closer to the middle core wild.
When they finally meet the core wild, the core wild will absorb or eat the sticky wilds and increase your multiplier to a maximum of 20x. Whenever you get a win in Diamond Vortex, the winning symbols disappear from the grid, and new ones appear. Pair this with the shifting and rotating motion of the rings, you can imagine how many potential new combos you can make.
Then we have the transform feature in Diamond Vortex. This occurs when zones touch spots on the same ring. When this happens, symbols on the ring will be transformed into matching ones to create more winning clusters.
Lastly, you have the free spin feature. This happens when you have a bonus symbol in the zone ring. You can activate up 5 five free spins and add to your wins.
For those looking for an innovative and feature-packed game, then Diamond Vortex will surely not disappoint. There doesn’t seem to be a theme to the symbols, but the focus is on the bonus features. The RTP is pretty steady around 96.2%, and with the large abundance of multipliers, free spins, and cool features, Diamond Vortex gives you a good and clear shot at the 5,000x bonus.

It’s most certainly a special slot game that won’t make it too easy on those who need the adrenaline boost. We’d say the game gets our seal of approval in every aspect, well, maybe except the symbols.
