European Live Roulette with an added Slot Twist!
Diamond Strike Roulette is a game played on a European wheel with an added slot reel for additional side bets.
Welcome to Extreme Gaming’s Diamond Strike Roulette, a fun fiesta mix of an old school fruit machine slot and a live roulette game- it sounds like it shouldn’t work- but does it? The answer is a resounding yes!
As this game’s title suggests this game is full of energy- just what you’d expect from a game with “lightning” in the title. Here we have a live roulette game played on a real wheel opearated by a professional dealer wearing smart evening wear. Now that’s a great start.
And there’s a whole sky of lightning that flickers across the background behind the dealer, so let’s get ready for some stormy fun!
For those of you who’ve tried their hand at live roulette before, on games like London Roulette, Immersive and Dual Ball, you’ll have a good idea of the set up. The best games, in my opinion, have a live dealer to keep the tempo of the game up and give some authenticity to the game, with a traditional roulette wheel with all the sounds of game play that can be oddly absent from virtual games.
Another game we’d recommend is Immersive Live Roulette which is an Evolution game that is a real looker.
Spin the Reel and the Wheel
What makes this game asuccess and ups the ante on the fun is that there is also some slot play thrown into the mix.
To the right of the dealer you’ll see a single slot reel game which is populated with all the traditional icons such as a bell, lemon, diamond, plum and melon.
As the roulette wheel spins, so does the slot reel. As the ball settles into a pocket, the slot reel also stops with its fixed pointer pointing to one of the fruit machine slot icons.
The lower half of the screen is the play table where you can place your bets on a straightforward table that is easy to read and easy to use with just the click of a mouse.
The lower part of the pay table has an additional set of icons which correspond to the fruit machine symbols: place an additional bet on the fruit machine icons alongside the more traditional roulette bets.
For those of you who like to use a racetrack betting layout, there is also this option on offer to the right of the play table.
Lightning Can Strike More than Once
To the right of the slot reel there’s a handy spot with lightning strikes, where you can chat with the dealer: a great option if you like a bit of banter. This brings a land based casino vibe to the game and keeps the dealer entertained! It certainly perked up the lady in my game.
If you like to keep your eyes on the action, there’s an area to the right where the most recent winning slot icons are displayed. There is a countdown indicator to notify you when the betting closes (this is also announced by the dealer).
Diamond Strike Roulette is good fun to play with all the excitement of a live roulette game but with the extra fun of a fruity too. An interesting crossover giving you a taster of a flutter on the slots, with the possibility of a lightning strike to keep you on your toes.
