Deco Diamonds Deluxe review
From the outside, this slot may look like yet another take on a classic fruit machine… but once you start spinning, you’ll soon see the fast-paced action kick into gear. Like the name suggests, this JFTW-Microgaming collaboration has a very art deco feel to it, making it quite a stylish game to play – and the host of fun features adds a nice mix of modern-day technology.

Deco Diamonds Deluxe bonus features
Though it may look a little old-school (and not at all in a bad way), Deco Diamonds Deluxe is packed with fun features to keep the gameplay exciting.
From the three bonus wheels – which is where the big prizes are hidden – to the sticky wilds and nudge feature, you’ve got plenty of ways to increase your winning potential. We’ll go through them all now, since there’s quite a lot going on in this slot.
The game logo functions as a wild in this slot, and it works in a few ways. Firstly, it can substitute for other symbols to help complete your paylines – but it can also trigger respins and the bonus wheels, which we’ll delve further into in the relevant sections below. It’s definitely a symbol to look out for though, since it will act as the trigger for the bigger prizes.
While you won’t find free spins in this slot, when two or more wilds appear, they’ll stick in place while the rest of the reels spin in search of a win. If more wild symbols land, you’ll keep respinning until you find no more.
If you see the repins feature start to build up, one of three bonus wheels can be triggered, depending on how many wilds you find on the reels. The three wheels are triggered as follows:
- Three wilds: Silver with prizes of 5, 8, 18, 58 or 80 times your stake
- Four wilds: Gold with prizes of 8, 18, 58, 98, or 588 times your stake
- Five wilds: Diamond with prizes of 18, 58, 588, or 1,000 times your stake
Boosts and Nudges
If you look on the left-hand side of the reels, you’ll see the Boost button, which increases your bet and the RTP of the game, giving you better chances of winning.
When you trigger the Boost feature, you’ll also activate the Nudge feature which will nudge symbols into place if they are slightly off the reels. This can improve your chances greatly, making the Boost feature well worth the extra bet.
Deco Diamonds Deluxe jackpot
This isn’t a traditional jackpot slot, but if you manage to hit that diamond bonus wheel, you could be looking at prizes of up to 1,000x per spin.
RTP and volatility
The cool thing about Deco Diamonds Deluxe is that you actually have a little control over the return to player via the Boost feature. The base game begins with an RTP of 96.03%, but this can be increased to 96.15% with the Boost.
The slot is highly volatile, so though you won’t find multitudes of wins, you could have the chance of striking it big when you do land a win.
Deco Diamonds Deluxe on mobile
This slot works beautifully on mobile, but since there is a lot going on (particularly with the bonus wheels), we recommend playing on a bigger screen for full effect.
