Divine Diamonds is an old-school fruit slot machine-styled game from Northern Lights Gaming and can be found on the Microgaming platform. Northern Lights Gaming is based out of the UK, but they have offices in Manchester and Stockholm and were established in 2017. They’re a newer studio, but they have more than 50 years of experience in their team.
Some might feel that the fruit machine is uninspired. However, the bonus features, which are discussed later, along with great background music and visually beautiful graphics, are what set Divine Diamonds apart from the competition.
Divine Diamonds is anything but dull. Players should put on their party shoes and get ready for a fun, upbeat slot that looks and sounds terrific. The game is designed to appear and feel like a very classic fruit machine that players would have seen in Las Vegas circa 1965.

Divine Diamonds is smooth and sleek looking, with lots of slot machine noises during play. Of course, the usual symbols are all here, too, including cherries, red and green sevens, BAR, Wilds, Free Spin Deluxe, and obviously, diamonds!
Unless they’re dead inside, the music is a bop that will have players tapping their toes and bobbing their heads. And every time players land diamond symbols, a soothing and some might even say sexy female voice - a Vegas showgirl according to the Divine Diamond developers - announces the number of diamonds that landed.
There are several cool features in Divine Diamonds. Let’s take a look.
The Hyperstryke feature occurs when players land at least three diamonds. The scale to the left of the game grid keeps track and lets players know their winnings, along with that lovely voice mentioned earlier. Nine diamonds will award lucky players 2,000x the stake.
The rest play out as follows:
- Eight diamonds pay500x
- Seven diamonds pay 100x
- Six diamonds pay 40x
- Five diamonds pay 15x
- Four diamonds pay 5x
- Three diamonds and players break even on their bet at 1x.
Random Respins are a fun feature that can be triggered at any time in the Divine Diamonds base game or the free spin round. There are two possibilities: a certain number of reels stick and the rest respin or the entire game grid respins.
When players land three of the Free Spins Deluxe symbols, they’re taken to a fortune wheel that they can spin to find out how many free spins and what multiplier they win.

The Wild symbols in Divine Diamonds can substitute for all pay symbols and offer a payout at 125x the stake if players can land five.
Divine Diamonds is not exactly earth-shatteringly innovative. Players have certainly seen similar games. However, it’s done well and is a lot of fun. Divine Diamonds may not pay out enough for high rollers, but it’s a great way to spend some time for casual or new players.
Players can get their groove on while reminiscing about the good old days and enjoying some classic slot machine time with features that keep the game exciting. Also, thanks to the medium volatility, the payouts occur regularly enough to keep players coming back for more or at least playing longer than they’d planned.
Divine Diamonds is worth a look, particularly for fans of fruit machines and nostalgic Las Vegas. Even if they don’t win a lot, players will have a good time and maybe even get some dancing in.
