3X Wild Diamonds


3X Wild Diamonds

This is a classic mechanical reel-spinning stepper slot on IGT’s S3000 Classic cabinet, featuring three different wild symbols, including a 3X wild symbol that multiplies the jackpot by three in a winning combination, and by nine if two land in a win.

Three of the 3X wild symbols on the diagonal ninth payline at max bet return the game’s top progressive, resetting at $40,000. On any other payline, the combination pays a stagnant award of $7,500.

The other two wild symbols, represented by blue and pink gems, also return progressives when three are lined up on any payline. Three blue-gem wilds return a progressive resetting at $600; three pink gems, a progressive starting at $1,750. Any mixed combination of three 3X, blue-gem and pink-gem wilds on a payline returns a progressive resetting at $300.

The rest of the pay schedule is populated by traditional bar and “7” symbols, with four separate winning “7” combinations.

This is a classic volatile stepper game, designed for high denominations, which here range from quarters to $5.
