Knockout Diamonds Slot Review
As much as I hate the thought of them, emojis are a thing, and they keep releasing new ones all the damn time. Thinking of Knockout Diamonds, my imagination went straight to little dancing diamonds, with boxing gloves on. You know, anything is possible. Two shiny little stones, sparring their way to the top, ducking, diving, and decking. If one gets knocked out, then I'd expect a bruised and bashed little sparkly fella. Imagine that. I was wrong though. This is a classic slot game, popular in older times, has nothing to make fun of. Boohoo for me!
Knockout Diamonds is the 8th slot game in ELK Studios Classic Series and has 3 reels, with a 1 payline option. Symbols comprise of Bells, Lucky 7s, Cherries, and Single, Double, and Treble Bars. This game also has Wilds, as well as Multiplier Wilds, complete with Knockout Diamonds Bonus symbols.
Controls are located on both sides of the screen and include Menu, Total Bet, Auto Spin, and Spin. Below the screen is the Balance and Bet windows.
The features in Knockout Diamonds include Knockout Spins. Landing 3 Bonus symbols in one spin will activate 3 Free Spins. During these, should you land another Bonus symbol or be rewarded for a win, the Free Spins will get reset. 10 Bonus symbols will pay out the maximum win, which is 2 500x your bet. The maximum is also awarded when 3 Bonus symbols land on the payline during the Knockout Spins feature.
The Wild and Multiplier Wilds substitute for any paying symbol, excluding the Knockout Diamonds Bonus symbol.
Knockout Diamonds has two unique features: the Ringside Rumble and the Multiplier Wilds. Ringside Rumble will lock in two of the same symbols that land on the first two reels. Once these are locked in, 3 respins will be given on the third reel.
As for the Multiplier Wilds, these multiply the payout for that spin, should there be one, by x2 or x3, depending on which Multiplier Wild lands on the reels.
I appreciate this slot game, as it stays true to its identity of replicating a 'classic slot game.' It has a retro layout, which also has its downside. The game itself does not fit the screen owing to the nature of its traditional shape, so it does appear to be 'squashed,' with everything packed like sardines. There is no doubt this game makes use of the boxing theme, and despite the overcrowded game layout, its overall performance is of high quality.
While there are no tiny dancing diamonds to box, you certainly can knock ‘em dead by dabbing your way through the reels. Instead of landing some punches, land some payouts instead. The Lineal Title is yours for the taking, so strap up those knuckles and get hitting.
