Timber Wolf Diamond

This new game on Aristocrat’s imposing new Neptune Double immersive cabinet utilizes proven math similar to the company’s hit Buffalo Diamond game, in a unique ways-to-win reel setup.

The Neptune Double cabinet is a follow-up to Aristocrat’s popular Arc Double format, with stacked, curved 49-inch monitors replacing the dual 43-inch curved displays of the Arc Double. The screens are angled in a way that the player can look straight up and see the top progressive meter, when seated in the custom-designed chair.

The base-game reel array in Timber Wolf Diamond is in the Extra Reel Power setup—a 4-5-6-5-4 layout (four symbols on the outer reels, five on reels 2 and 4, six on the middle reel), which results in 2,400 possible ways to win on each spin. (The scatter format has no paylines; wins are registered through adjacent symbols.)

The game features a cumulative free-spin feature with four levels of multipliers. Bonus symbols trigger a large “Gateway Wheel” that spins to reveal one of four possible free-spin rounds, each with a number of spins and a multiplier of 2X, 3X or 4X. The other possible stop on the wheel is the Grand Jackpot progressive, which resets at $500,000.

The numbers of free games on each meter are incremented upward every time a diamond lands on the fifth reel during the primary game. According to the manufacturer, unlimited retriggers set no maximum on the number of free games.
