Double Diamonds is a classic three reel slot designed and powered by IGT. This game was initially designed for brick and mortar casinos but was later moved online. To this end, you will find it in almost all Vegas casinos.
It is popular among many casino-goers. Granted, a sequel of this game, Triple Diamond, has since been released. Double Diamonds offer multipliers of 2×2 (x4) while Triple Diamonds offer multipliers of 3×3 (x9).
The former has more symbols thus counterbalancing low multiplier values. Having been played since 2005 and still commanding a huge following, this game is indeed great.
