Diamond Valley is a progressive jackpot online slot from the online gaming software provider Playtech. It was hit two days ago for $229,955. Confirmation is as yet awaited as to which Playtech online casino recorded the hit and who the lucky winner was.
But the hit is unusual in the sense it is more than twice the recorded average amount. Diamond Valley hits every 15 days on an average for just under $100,000. These statistics have been based on the last one year’s data of hits. In the last one year there have been 25 payouts amounting to a total of just under $2.5 million. Actually Diamond Valley is quite a volatile slot game. The lowest hit has been for $14,000 in just two days and the highest hit is the last one that occurred after 26 days. Over a month ago the progressive jackpot had paid out just over $200,000.
Diamond Valley is a very popular online slot. It is a 5 reel slot with 5 paylines and a fixed bet of 1 coin of $1 per payline. As the name suggests the online slot game has a mining theme. The symbols on the reels denote the ruggedness of mining life and also its benefits in the form of diamonds. The progressive jackpot is hit if five diamond symbols appear in the fifth payline. Therefore players angling for the progressive jackpot must play with all lines enabled. If five diamond symbols appear on any other payline then the player gets a fixed payout of 5,000 coins. Diamond Valley has a bonus game on the second screen. Three or more Hand symbols consecutively on an enabled payline activate the bonus game. Players have to choose an item from three that have been found by the diamond miners. The item reveals the bonus credits.
In February this year Playtech released an upgraded version of Diamond Valley, titled Diamond Valley Pro. That online slot has slicker graphics and twenty paylines but does not offer a progressive jackpot. Therefore the original Diamond Valley is still popular. It features quite often in online casino promotions. One such thrilling promotion called Captain Cash’s Treasure Trail is being hosted at Mansion Casino in which Diamond Valley plays a pivotal role.
Though it is not yet known in which online casino the recent hit has been recorded, Diamond Valley can be played at all Playtech online casinos. Some of the more popular ones are Play United, Casino Tropez, Casino Del Rio, Golden Palace, Grand Casino and Omni Casino.
