The Deco Diamonds Deluxe mobile slot takes an older game and improves it. And that’s fine by us.
Not that long ago in January 2018, the Just For The Win studios brought out an OK game called the Deco Diamonds slot. It was fun enough but ultimately forgettable.
Well, welcome to 2019 because JFTW has improved this game in small but noticeable ways turning it from “OK” to “Oh yeah, we are sitting up and paying attention.”
For one, the graphics and animation are better, smoother and feels like a modern casino game that could match most games in the Microgaming slots portfolio.
They’ve kept the art deco luxury fruit machine theme, which we loved, and just made it flow nicer on tablet and mobile casinos.
But more importantly, you can now press the diamond symbol on the left-hand side, which gives you an extra feature. What feature? Any wild symbols that land just outside of the reels will nudge back onto the reels.
It will cost you 50% of your bet, but that’s not too bad – it just increases the minimum bet of this Deco Diamonds Deluxe 9 payline slot game from 0.10 to 0.15 a spin. Still very affordable.
Everything in this Deco Diamonds Deluxe slot game centres around the wild symbol. There’s no scatters and no free spins bonuses.
What you want are two wild symbols. Because then you get a re-spin of the reels without wilds to try and catch more wilds. Each wild on each reel will give you a re-spins, which is great fun to watch.
But that’s not the whole purpose. Once you’re done with the respins, 3 or more wilds will let you spin the bonus wheels. These have prizes from 3x to 666x your bet, which triggers often enough that you don’t mind how hard it is to catch the better-paying diamond reel.
Because what’s fun is that the paytable is good enough, with plenty of stacked symbols, that all the other details are just fun extras to a simple and fun 5 reel fruit machine.

Wild Symbol: The Deco Diamonds Deluxe slot logo is the wild symbol and can replace any other symbol in order to create a win over 9 paylines.
Wild Re-spin: 2 or more wild symbols will give you a free re-spin of the reels without a wild symbol. Every wild gives you a free re-spin of the reels.
Stacked Symbols: The top three high paying symbols come stacked 3 high.
Bonus Wheel: 3, 4 or 5 Deco Diamonds Deluxe wild symbol on screen (after the respins) will trigger a bonus wheel bonus.
Obviously the diamond level wheel of fortune hides much bigger prizes than the silver bonus wheel. However, the silver and gold wheel have a golden upgrade sliver that lets you move up to the next level.
Just For The Boost: If you press the Diamond button on the left-hand side of the screen, you'll increase your bet by 50%. Why would you do that? Because now, if a wild symbol lands just below or under the reels, it will nudge back onto the reels to give you re-spins and bonus wheel.
What does this Deco Diamonds Deluxe mobile slot have to offer that the original didn't? More chances of catching those big bonus wheels and those re-spins.
We actually enjoyed this casino slot more than the original, but is it enough to make us give this a 4-star slot review? Actually yes. Mostly because the graphics and sounds have been upgraded, making this feel and look like a modern video game with that classic 20s feel.
And as long as you press that 'Just For The Boost' and pay a little extra, this slot machine flows nicely, with lots of wilds and re-spins to keep you excited for catching those bigger win wheel.
We don't think it's one you'll play for hours on end, but it's a fun in-betweener for when you are jumping around between games.
If you want something a little easier on the wallet, however, it might be best to play on the Tweethearts slot game instead.
