The Quad Shot series from Ainsworth consists of a range of 10 pokie games – Emerald Dream, Run with the Wolves, Mystique Queen, Pearl River, Island Princess, Jungle Princess, Mayan Magic, Diamond Eyes, Golden Lion 2 and Gold Zone.
Each of the slot games has its own distinct theme and symbols, featuring unique free games features too. However, the range comes together with the Quad Shot progressive jackpots, which are all won in the same way.
In this review, the focus will be on Diamond Eyes, with the differences between the games highlighted. Things get really wild during the free spins bonus of this title. Here are the stand-out moments:
There are four levels of progressive jackpots to be won – the Major, Maxi, Minor and Mini. To win one of the jackpots you’ll need to land a 5 in a row win, with the symbol on the fifth and final reel featuring a black frame around it. A selection of symbols, at least one, will feature a frame on the fifth reel every time you spin. The jackpot awards are as follows:
The bonus symbol features an ornate blue pattern, which could represent a genie. Land 3, 4 or 5 bonus symbols anywhere on the reels and you’ll be awarded 10 free spins. Throughout the free spins, any instances of the horse, the sultan or the magic lamp symbols will become wild.
With all of these extra wilds on the reels, alongside the stacked wilds that appear on the reels I both the base game and free spins you can expect a series of big wins. The minor and mini jackpots can be won on a regular basis in this feature – as you can expect a series of wild added 5 in a row wins.
At any time, the free spins can be retriggered. This is achieved by landing the three bonus symbols again, with an additional 3 free spins added to your total.
Throughout the Quad Shot range, you’ll find a variety of different free spins features. For example, in Mystique Queen you’ve got the chance to trigger Super Free Games (spins with greatly enhanced winning opportunities), while Jungle Princess offers free spins with bonus reels and multipliers thrown into the mix.
This Ainsworth designed pokie features a 5×3 reel set up, where the wins come thick and fast due to the 50 win-lines in play. On the reels are a nice mix of middle eastern themed symbols, pointing back to the time of Aladdin. Alongside the exotic mix of symbols, you’ll also find a snake and a tent with an entrance. Perhaps that’s where you’ll meet the veiled lady, who acts as the stacked wild.
Diamond Eyes plays out against a dark backdrop, featuring a series of rich colours that bring the game to life. The stacked wild with the mystery lady is the standout symbol, coming to life as diamonds burst from her eyes, when you win. The overall mix of symbols gives the appearance of a dark fairy tale – the happy ending will come when you land that big win.
Each of the games in the Quad Shot range has its own distinctive theme and set of symbols. All maintaining that high level of quality in the visuals and the game play.
Any time you play a pokie with a progressive jackpot, there is always an extra level of excitement, especially when that jackpot is just a spin of the reels away. Simply land that 5 in a row win with a framed symbol and you’ll be claiming one of those four prizes. Every game in the series features an original and highly playable free spins feature too. Choose your favourite theme and feature and give the Quad Shot pokies a spin.
