Game of the Week: Black Diamond

This is old-school, baby! Everi’s Black Diamond is one of a series of online slots inspired by classic Las Vegas-style games.

Forget the fancy themes and graphics. Black Diamond from Everi plays like the three-reel one-armed bandits of old-time Las Vegas. In fact, it’s one of a series of games inspired by classic slots put out by Everi.

The symbols are the traditional 7s, bars and diamonds—no cherries or lemons, unfortunately. More importantly, the game looks and feels like the kind of mechanical slot rarely seen these days, outside old movies.

Though the look of the game is basic, cool features stoke the online play. First is the ability to really tweak your bet. You choose the denomination, starting at .25 credits, as well as the number of bets per line, and the number of lines in play from 1 to 9.

It’s a little complicated, but if you play the maximum bet on 9 lines, your bet will be 27 credits. You’ll want to play the max bet, as it gives you a shot at two major progressive jackpots.

Even if you don’t go for the big money, Black Diamond has a sweet return rate to players—nearly 96 percent—and offers a chance for big hits. Some symbols, like triple 7s, can pay as much as 300 times your bet when they hit on a payline! Many other symbols carry bonus multipliers.

The game doesn’t have a free-spins mode, and the Black Diamond symbol is wild. This is a simple, old-school game, with exciting payout action that makes it a player favorite.

Aladdin’s Legacy

And now, for the exact opposite of Black Diamond. Aladdin’s Legacy from Amaya Gaming is a graphics-filled game that immerses you in an Arabian theme through the legend of Aladdin and the Lamp.

While the game has basic card symbols such as A,K,Q and J, it also has Arabian-themed symbols. Every time you hit a payout, the symbols do a little show (the monkey at the bazaar is a favorite.)

It all comes in a 5-reel, 20-payline game that also features an engaging soundtrack that makes for fun gameplay. The game does feature a wild symbol—Aladdin on his Magic Carpet—and a scatter symbol—Aladdin’s Lamp.

Hit 3 or more scatters, and you enter a free-spins mode, in which the symbols change to gemstones and a single magical cave symbol. Hit the cave on reel 5, and you enter a bonus called Into the Cave, where you get to choose 3 gemstones. Choose right, and you enter the Treasure Room bonus, then pick a path to the treasure.

Aladdin’s Legacy is a fun and entertaining slot that really embraces its theme. With a little luck, the treasure can be yours.

Mad Mad Monkey

And now for some silly fun. Mad Mad Monkey from Nextgen is a fun-filled slot that lives up to its name. You start out in a cartoon jungle setting, trying to help the monkey find fruits and favorite foods. The little guy peeks out from the sides of the game board frequently, and pops up when you hit big payouts.

Those payouts come fairly often, as this 5-reel game offers 50 paylines and more than 350 different line and line-bet combinations. You have the choice of playing one to 50 paylines.

The bonuses can trigger any time. You win prizes for finding the monkey’s favorite foods (Monkey Nuts, worth up to 300 coins; Coconuts, worth up to 400 coins; and Bananas, worth up to 1,000 coins). Be on the lookout for Mad Mad Monkey’s friends, Snake and Parrot, who also pay bonuses.

The game’s free-spins mode is triggered by the Mad Monkey symbols and includes a Wild Monkey symbol—which can also be stacked—as the game’s wild symbol. Hit with a wild symbol, and your payout is doubled.

You’ll really feel the game’s theme when a big payout hits, and the Mad Mad Monkey celebrates on the game board. This is a pretty simple game, but it’s also a real hoot.
