Disco Diamonds: Slot Overview

Disco (inspired) music might have seen a revival in recent times, but it remains as divisive as ever. Platform shoes, open shirts, wide bottom flares, and medallions aren't to everyone's taste. Still, developer Play'n GO have crafted Disco Diamonds, a slot with significant potential that might be enough to overcome some of the aversion to the flamboyant music genre. Chock full of old school slot symbols, a win-all-ways pay system and features bring Disco Diamonds kicking and screaming out of the 70s into a more contemporary space.

Right off the bat Disco Diamonds has a similar look and feel to some of the other games in the genre, such as the flamboyant Village People Macho Moves slot from Fortune Factory Studios with its disco ball wilds and neon pink colours. The 5-reel, 243 win ways grid has prime position in the DJ booth of a hip, exclusive club bathed in blue and purple lighting. There is an almost art deco look to the furnishings, plus a couple of oddly out of place, yet in place, panther statues adding an extra dash of class, or vulgarity, depending on your outlook.


The mandatory disco track hovering in the background starts off pretty subdued, but gets foot tappingly good during features when the DJ finally decides to put on a decent record. Overall, a quality Play’n GO production on the audio/visual front.


Players gain entry to this event on any device with stake choices from 10 p/c to £/€100 per spin. Disco Diamond serves up yet another dependable Play’n GO math model, skewed towards those who prefer medium volatility gameplay. RTP may be adjusted depending on the individual operator's setting, but the default rating of 96.29% is as solid as ever. As always, take a quick look at the paytable before joining in the show to know which version you're playing.

One nice thing about Disco Diamond is its pay system. Despite the retro reels/symbols, there are 243 win ways rather than a bunch of fixed paylines. Winning combinations start from the leftmost reel, and consist of three adjacent matching symbols, in any row.


As mentioned, the symbols are retro classics, numbering nine in all. The first five are low pay lemons, cherries, Bars, Double Bars, and Triple Bars, with a shiny, almost metallic finish. The remaining four premiums are sevens, double sevens, triple sevens, and diamonds. Land five of these in a row for a reward of 2 to 5 times the stake.


One last thing, Disco Diamond has a couple of wilds which contribute positively to the win rate. The standard silver disco ball wild appears on any reel to substitute for any regular pay symbol - five in a row are also worth 50 times the stake. The other wild, we'll cover next.


Disco Diamonds: Slot Features

The Disco Diamonds slot has an retro disco theme and is dominated by neon. Set inside what looks like a nightclub, it has an upbeat soundtrack. There are pink and purple lights flashing which add to the atmosphere. Visually, it’s very well designed. It does have a Saturday Night Fever feel to it.

Symbols are inspired by classic slot machines as the symbols include cherries, lemons, Bars, double Bars and triple Bars. You also have green 7s, blue double 7s, ed treble 7s and diamonds. The diamond symbol is the most lucrative paying 1, 2 or 5 x stake for 3, 4 or 5 in combination.


Appropriately, the disco ball is the wild symbol. Substituting for all symbols except the bonus scatters, 5 on a payline pays 50 x your total stake.


The Disco Diamonds slot benefits from 3 bonus features. There are golden disco ball wilds which give you re-spins with other wilds locked in play. More golden disco balls will give you more re-spins with the multiplier increasing with each re-spin. There’s a Bonus Wheel feature where you spin the wheel to win a cash prize or up to 20 free spins. In the Free Spins feature, you can get disco re-spins but the multiplier doesn’t reset.


Disco Re-Spin feature

Look out for the golden disco ball which is a special wild symbol. When it lands on any reel, the Disco Re-Spin feature will be activated. You’ll get 1 free re-spin.

Any wilds on the reels will convert into special golden disco ball wilds. These will remain fixed in position during the re-spin. Any wins generated will be subject to a 2x multiplier.


If another golden disco ball wild lands, another re-spin will be awarded. Furthermore, the multiplier increases by 1 for each subsequent re-spin. In theory, you could benefit from unlimited re-spins and multiplier.



Bonus Wheel feature

Look out for the Bonus Wheel scatter symbol. When 3 appear on reels 1, 3 and 5, you’ll activate the Bonus Wheel feature. Here, you get the chance to win free spins or an instant prize up to 50 x your total stake. The Bonus Wheel drops down and spins. It will land on a segment that has an instant prize or a number of free spins on it:


  • Instant Prize: 5, 7, 25 or 50 x your total stake
  • Free Spins: 5, 7, 10 or 20 free spins

Free Spins feature

The Free Spins feature will begin with either 5, 7, 10 or 20 free spins. The golden disco ball wilds can land which will bring the Disco Re-Spin feature into play.

However, any multiplier gained from the re-spin will carry over to the next Disco Re-Spin within the free spins. If you were to trigger the Disco Re-Spin feature and had a 3x multiplier, the multiplier would begin at 3x the next time you triggered the Disco Re-Spin feature. With no limits on how high the multiplier can go, you cannot retrigger the free spins.



Disco Diamonds: Slot Verdict
Unless you are a disco buff or fan of classic gaming, it may take a little while to warm to Disco Diamond's charm. The game relies heavily on respins which chug along nicely when you've land a sweet roll of consecutive Disco Ball Wilds. However, to balance the mechanic, Play’n GO has reined in the symbol values, crippling much of the base game, or even free spins which don't benefit from the win multiplier. It means if you don't get the features in, bankrolls can take a hit, as does the enthusiasm for what is in many ways a fruit slot tarted up for a night out.

Fortunately, they do pop up quite regularly, and the respins feature can be a good one, especially during free spins. Even winning the lowest number, 5, from the bonus wheel can be nicely extended when the handy Disco Balls turn up. Notable potential is there if they do so as well. Find your groove, and wins of up to 10,000 times the stake is theoretically possible, double the amount you usually find in most Play’n GO slots. On the negative side, due to the addition of the respins feature, the free spins frequency appears to have taken a hit. Prepare for frustration when the bonus wheel awards a win multiplier instead of free spins after a long wait.


Disco Diamonds ticks several of the right boxes - potential is there, as is high volatility for the harder-edged gambler. Great flows of profitable respins/free spins are possible, but there's not much in the way of a Plan B. If you fail to latch onto the features it can be a struggle to stay positive while bopping at this disco.
