Diamond Mine Deluxe Guide
Like its little cousin, Diamond Mine, this Deluxe version boasts more ice than Elizabeth Taylor's favorite pawn-shop. So if you like your rocks like you like your post-secondary education, hard and expensive, you'll want to give Diamond Mine Deluxe your full attention.
It features classic slot machine gameplay, with a single payout line and from 1-3 coins per spin, but this game does have a few surprises up its sleeve.
How to Play Diamond Mine Deluxe
To start, just add credits to the machine from your existing balance. It's just like a slot machine down at the casino, where each credit is $1. Just click on the chip denominations (you'll see $5, $25 and $100 chips) to add multiple credits, or click on the coin slot on the machine for single credits. You can add credits up to the full balance of your account.
Next, select how many credits you want to bet, from 1-3. You can choose by either hitting the "Bet One" button up to 3 times, or hitting the "Bet Max" button. If you choose "Bet Max" you'll bet 3 credits, and the machine will automatically spin without you hitting the "Spin Reel" button.
Now that you've placed a wager, just hit "Spin Reel" to play!
How to Win
Diamond Mine Deluxe pays on a single line, marked "Payline" on the machine.
But this game features a twist. Any Diamond will move up or down to land on the payline, if its point is facing the payline. That means you should wait a second after each spin to see if some lucky diamonds have given you a nice win.
Winnings depend on how many coins you play, and the Progressive Jackpot can only be won if you bet 3 coins.
The Pay Table shows winnings for every combination, at each of the 3 coin wager levels. The Pay Table is also displayed within the game so you'll always know how much you can win.
Diamond Mine Deluxe features a progressive jackpot. Just hit three double diamonds on the payline, while playing 3 credits and you win.
Double Diamond Symbols
See those 2x symbols? Those are double diamonds and they can 2x or even 4x your winnings. Double diamonds play as any other symbol, and double the amount of any winning combination. If you hit two double diamonds, you win 4x the prize amount, except when 3 double diamonds appear.

The story behind the game
Many years ago, the slot machine Double Diamond was first discovered at the bottom of an abandoned mine shaft. Those who discovered it soon released an online version out to the world where it spread around the globe, bringing fun and riches to millions of players. But the world wasn't satisfied. The people clamored for more. And so Diamond Mine Deluxe was born, with more cherries, more letters in the name and, of course, more diamonds. And now you can play it right from the comfort of your home, office or anywhere you can sit in your car and steal Wi-Fi.
Pay Line: A line that shows where symbols have to land after the reels spin, to award prizes.
Progressive Jackpot: A jackpot that gets larger and larger the longer it goes without being won.
