Watch the duckling transform into a beautiful swan in this unique 5-reel slot with 40 win lines that is based on the classic Hans Christian Anderson tale. Players must collect Diamond Heart symbols to journey through the chapters of this slot to watch the duckling transform in a majestic swan, unlocking the exciting Swan feature which gives player massive chances to grab big wins. Additional features include the Snap Drop feature which awards players with one free re-spin where only Diamond Hearts with multipliers on them appear on the reels, and the Diamond Tales™ Feature which gives them three free spins to collect as many Diamond Hearts as possible.
The turbo feature also allows players to speed up the game to fit even more fun into their time! What’s also great about this game is that the storyline can be paused if you want to leave the game, and when you return you will be able to pick up where you left off. The only exception is if you are in the chapter 5, where pausing on your game status is for a limited amount of time only.
Come on a quacking adventure in Diamond Tales™: The Ugly Duckling. This fairy tale slot is based on the original Hans Christian Andersen story and awards players with magical wins on 5 reels and 40 win lines.
The aim of the base game is simple – collect Diamond Hearts in the Special Reel to either take with you into the Snap Drop or Diamond Tales™ Features, or progress the story and reach the Swan Feature. To collect Diamond Hearts, all the player has to do is land them on the reels. When one lands, it collects it in the Special Reel above and stays there until one of the features is triggered or the player lands a spin with no Diamond Hearts appearing on the main reels. If this happens, all Diamond Hearts in the Special Reel are removed and added to the Heart Collection Counter. The exact amount of Diamond Hearts from the Special Reel are added to the counter. For each chapter of the game there are different amounts of Diamond Hearts the player has to collect to complete the counter and story until the very final chapter with the Swan Feature.
Diamond Tales™: The Ugly Duckling is played on 5 reels and 40 win lines.
The Snap Drop Feature can be triggered at any point in the base game. All the player has to do is land the Snap Drop symbol on the fifth reel and have Diamond Hearts in the Special Reel. If the player lands the Snap Drop symbol with no Diamond Hearts in the Special Reel, this counts as a near miss and does not trigger the feature.
The Snap Drop Feature awards the player with one free re-spin where only Diamond Hearts with multipliers on them appear on the reels. The multiplier on the Diamond Heart is defined by the number on the Hearts in the Special Reel above. If there is no Diamond Heart in the Special Reel above, the reel will not re-spin when the Snap Drop is triggered. Therefore, one to five reels can spin on each Snap Drop trigger and each reel can have between zero and four hearts landing.
After the re-spin, all multipliers on Diamond Hearts on the main reels are summed up and this sum then multiplies the player’s total bet.
The Diamond Tales™ Feature is triggered by 3 Book Bonus Symbols landing on reels 1, 3 and 5.
The player enters the feature with one extra Heart added to every space in the Special Reel. Therefore, the player enters the feature with at least one Heart on every reel of the Special Reel. The player is then awarded 3 Free Spins, which re-trigger to 3 every time a new Diamond Heart lands on the main reels. If the player has 3 spins with no new Diamond Hearts landing, the feature is over.
Diamond Hearts land with the same multiplier on them as the number on the Heart above in the Special Reel.
Red Diamond Hearts
If a Red Diamond Heart lands on a reel, its value will be added to any Red Diamond Hearts that previously landed on the same reel.
Gold Diamond Hearts
Gold Diamond Hearts work the same as Red Diamond Hearts. However, instead of being summed up, the Gold Diamond Heart multiplies any Diamond Hearts that previously landed on the same reel by its value. Then if another new heart lands, the Golden Diamond Heart’s updated value is multiplied again by the landing Heart. In each consecutive Chapter of the game one additional Gold Diamond Heart is added to the Diamond Tales™ Feature. Therefore, in the Spring Feature only 1 Gold Diamond Heart is available but in the Swan Feature, up to 5 can land. If the player only has 1 on a Heart in the Special Reel, a Gold Diamond Heart can not land on that reel.
