Diamond Valley Progressive Slot Details
The Diamond Valley progressive is a slot with five reels, three rows, and five paylines. You will be looking for the diamonds, and especially for the Diamond Mountain symbol. When five of these symbols are seen on the fifth payline, the jackpot win is triggered. In order to make sure that a jackpot win will pay out the progressive amount, it is important to place the max bet on the winning spin. The maximum bet per spin is five coins, one for each of the five paylines.
The video slot game has a number of symbols along with the Diamond Mountain symbols that are found on the reels. You will see a Jewelry Box, Dollar Signs, Bird symbols, and the Red Ruby Gem scatter symbol. The scatter wins do not have to be found on an enabled payline, which means that both scatter wins and payline wins can be hit, and paid out, at the same time.

Although there are a number of progressive jackpot games that pay out larger sums of money, Diamond Valley pays out quite often. Since progressives grow in size according to the number of bets that have been placed on the game, the jackpot grows much bigger if it is not hit for a few weeks. Mostly, the game pays out smaller amounts more frequently.
