Novomatic’s Diamond Cash: Oasis Riches Video Slot Review

Diamond Cash: Oasis Riches: Demo

Parting the Pharaoh from his riches is the name of the game in Diamond Cash: Oasis Riches. The likeliest way to do that in this 5 reel, 25 payline slot from Novomatic is via the 2 features. There’s a free spins round where 1 extra spin is added to your total if you don’t land a winner, and a streak respin round where you can win cash prizes as well as 4 potential progressive jackpot prizes. Play this medium variance slot on all devices from between 25p and £125 per spin.

Desert riches

Like many slots in the Novomatic catalogue, Diamond Cash: Oasis Riches is a relatively simple affair. That’s true of both the design and the gameplay. Set against a desert backdrop, you’ll find A, K and Q symbols as well as ornately designed earrings, fans, shoes and rings.

The Pharaoh on horseback is the top standard symbol. Land 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline, starting from reel 1 and you’ll pocket an award of 0.4, 2, 8 or 30 x your total bet. The mysterious veiled woman is the wild. She replaces everything bar the scatter and offers the same payout as the pharaoh.

Diamond Cash feature

Joining the usual symbols is a Blue Diamond which comes with a cash value attached. If you land 6 of these, you’ll activate the Diamond Cash Bonus. This is a streak respin round. The triggering blue diamonds turn pink and then lock in position – 3 respins then follow.

If a new diamond lands, the respins reset to 3. When you’ve played all your respins, the cash values attached to the diamonds are totted together for your overall prize. If you see the Mini, Minor or Major Jackpot prizes attached to a diamond you’ll win that too. The latter 2 are progressive.

Grand Jackpot

The really big progressive prize is the Grand Jackpot. This is triggered if you fill the entire screen with pink diamonds during the Diamond Cash Bonus. You can check the value of all 4 jackpots in the meters above the reels.

7 guaranteed win spins

Land 3 of the oasis scene symbol on the middle 3 reels on the spin and you’ll trigger the free spins round. You’ll then receive 7 free spins. If you don’t win anything on 1 of those free spins, an extra free spin is added to your total. Any blue diamonds that land here are held in a meter. You don’t need to land 6 diamonds on the same spin to trigger the jackpot round.

All about the jackpots

This Egyptian adventure is simple but rather nicely done. The sound and visuals are an upgrade on many Novomatic slots. The gameplay is straightforward which is no bad thing. The free spins and streak respins with the jackpot element are a perfectly playable combination. If you like the Arabian theme, there are better slots available – namely NetEnt’s Arabian Nights which has paid out millions in jackpot prizes over the years.
