Diamond Rush is a November 2018 underground mining-inspired video slot designed by Cayetano Gaming. Themes: ore deposits, host rocks, minerals, treasure chest, dwarves, gemstones, ore extraction, and smelting. Lucky Mine (March 2019) is another mining-themed slot game from Cayetano Gaming; however, the developer’s portfolio has lots of gem-themed games, including: Mr and Mrs Diamonds (March 2017), Fruit Stack Locked Gold, 7 Dwarf’s Diamond (November 2014), Diamond Dice, Nudging Gems (April 2014), and Dragon’s Wild (July 2018). Diamond Rush’s rival games include: Diamond Express (January 2015) from Magnet Gaming, Gold Rush (June 2016) from Playson, and Jewel Mine (February 2017) from Playtech.
This slot’s name is borrowed from the noun “Diamond Rush”, which refers to a dash towards a recently discovered diamond mine. One symbol (happy dwarf) appears once. One symbol (“FREE SPINS”) needs three combinations. Nineteen symbols (dwarves reel, three standalone dwarves, pickax reel, pickax, molten gold reel, molten gold, green diamond reel, green diamond, pink gem reel, pink gem, blue gem reel, blue gem, A, K, Q, J, and 10) require three, four, or five winning combinations.
