Diamond Trails

This symbol-driven progressive series by Konami, featured on the company’s jumbo cabinets KX43 and Concerto Opus, gives players a unique instant credit prize feature while they work toward linked and stand-alone jackpot opportunities.

There are two inaugural base games, called Ocean Winnings and Safari Winnings, both five-reel games available in payline configurations of five, 10, 25, 50, 75 or 100 lines.

Throughout game play, diamonds stretch up across the top of the screen, in a display that leads up to two fixed jackpots ($10 and $50) and two progressives, resetting at $500 and the Supreme Jackpot of $10,000. When any four or more diamonds are collected on the primary reels, it triggers the Diamond Trails feature, in which players have a chance to claim instant credit prizes from the diamonds stretching up above the reels, reaching higher amounts as the player advances to higher diamond levels, up to potential jackpot prize opportunities.

The Diamond Trails feature consists of free spins, in which diamonds on the reels reveal progressively higher jackpots behind the diamonds on the top display, leading up to the jackpots. The feature continues until either no free spins remain or until all four jackpots are awarded.

There is a separate free-spins feature, in which three, four or five bonus symbols trigger six, eight or 12 free games, respectively.
