Diamond Glitz is an addition to the Retro Reels collection of online slot games, produced by Microgaming. As the name suggests, this group of slot machines are based on the traditional Vegas style slot machines that we played before they became accessible over the internet. People love a bit of nostalgia, and what better way to do it than to bring the old style games to your computer screen?

This retro slot game is of course glitzy, glimmering and fabulous, without the smooth, sleek perfection that you often find in modern day games. It has been designed to look like you’re playing at an actual machine, and features all the old classic reel symbols. There are 5 reels and the potential to win up 440,000 coins. There are free spins available and a Respin feature.

The reels consist of the old favourites: a dollar sign, diamonds, bar symbols, 7, bells and cherries. Their design is excellent and really add to the nostalgic theme, however in terms of spinning the reels, I found that it isn’t as easy to distinguish between the Diamond Glitz symbols as easily as I would do in games with sharper and more colourful symbols.

There is a glittering bonus symbol which will kick-start the Glittering Free Spins Bonus game if 3 or more land. 3 bonus symbols will award you 15 free spins, 4 will award you 20, while 5 awards you 25. All wins are doubled in this feature and (what we’re always hoping for), free spins can be retriggered.

Diamond Glitz also boasts the Respin feature, which you may have already come across on the occasional slot game. At the end of any spin, you can click on the Respin button below any reel, to spin only that reel again. This is an extra cost, but can also help you to land a win that may otherwise have had no chance of getting.


I think Microgaming have done really well with this Retro Reels game. It actually feels pretty authentic (well, as authentic as it can be from a computer screen) and it undoubtedly reminds me of the great classic slot machines. Which, I guess, is their aim. It’s also an enjoyable game to play with some great features.
