If I had to describe Knockout Diamonds in one word it would be ‘loud’. Forget the actual soundtrack, which is a combination of boxing ambient noises and some heavy rock. The real loudness comes from the design itself. Three reels are set on a roomy grid packed with numbers, symbols and a flashing digital sign. Despite the extreme visual business of the game, there’s a distinct lack of diamond symbols for a game called Knockout Diamonds.
The theme is undeniably a boxing one. You’ll even be treated to echoing narrations from the match announcer. Accompanying this theme is an old school classic feel. You’ll experience a much smaller reel set, only one possible payline (both in and out of the special features) and the symbols themselves are almost all throwbacks to the original one armed bandits.
The entire grid is set on a static image of a boxing ring, complete with spotlights and cheering crowd. The symbols are a combination on cherries, single, double and treble bars, lemons and Lucky 7s. The Lucky 7 almost makes it to the top of the food chain, surpassed only by the Wild symbol, which is capable of wins of 100 times your bet for three on a winning payline.
