If you uncover three identical jackpot values, the bet multiplier will be rewarded and the jackpot feature ends.

Diamonds of Egypt: Conclusion

Another slot with 243 ways to win in an ancient Egypt setting from Pragmatic Play and as always design wise there is nothing to complain about. But a good slot design isn’t everything a slot is about.

We are happy about the fact that Pragmatic Play managed to differentiate Diamonds of Egypt by giving us improved reels for the Free-Spins and an additional jackpot feature, so it isn’t just another copy and paste slot.

If you´re playing on low bets, you will be disappointed that the lowest possible bet size Diamonds of Egypt has to offer is 0.88€ (or equivalent) leaving you no other option. We are also missing the option of buying Free-Spins since we are already used to that when playing a Pragmatic Play slot. Other than that we don’t have much else to complain about and to be honest these are just minor issues that don’t address every player. So let us wrap our review up, by saying that we liked Diamonds of Egypt. Mostly because of the features the slot has to offer.
