Graphics and Theme
Diablo Reels has styled itself on El Dia De Los Muertos or The Day of the Dead. It’s the Mexican festival of life and death where families welcome back the spirits of their deceased relatives for a short period of time. The background to the reels is colourful and filled with items you might find at a traditional Day of the Dead festival in Mexico. There’s a bottle of tequila, a decorated skull, a burning cigar & lighter, a tumbler filled with tequila and lots of golden flours spread across a wooden table. The reels themselves look like classic Vegas casino reels with two golden devil horns on the top corners. The game symbols also feature classic Vegas slot symbols with a Mexican twist.
The soundtrack is a chilled Mexican Banda song that’s looped on repeat with additional background noise from a busy bar. It will help you relax as you hit spin while making you feel like you’re at a festival yourself. When you hit spin the reels will make a classic arcade noise before coming to a stop.
Diablo Reels symbols
There are their tiers of symbols in this game. The low paying symbols are made up of chillies, limes, and watermelons. Three of a kind watermelons will pay out 1.5x your stake. The middle tier of symbols includes Bar symbols, horseshoes, and bells. Three bell symbols will pay out 10x your stake. Finally, the high paying symbols include lucky sevens and diamonds. Three diamonds will pay out 50x your stake.
There are also multiple wild symbols and a bonus symbol.
Wild symbol bonus features
The first wild symbol bonus feature is the nudging wild. When a nudging wild symbol lands on the reels, the feature begins. The symbol will nudge up one position on the reels, awarding a re-spin for each position moved until it goes off the screen.
The second feature is the wild stack respin. To trigger it, you need to land three wilds on one reel. Then, a wild stack respin is awarded, which respins the other two reels with the stacked wild still in place.
Diablo Reels free spins bonus game
To trigger the free spins game, you need to land three bonus symbols on adjacent reel positions. You will then be awarded ten free spins. The free spins game is played across both sets of reels. The best thing is that the top set of reels only include the high paying symbols. Additionally, the nudging wild symbols can have multipliers attached to them which can help you make even bigger cash prizes.
Game How to Play
You first need to select your betting range which can be from as little as £0.20 per spin, up to a maximum of £100 per spin for those of you chasing the maximum payout.

The base game is played across a 3×3 set of reels with five pay lines. During the free spins, round another 3×3 grid is added to make a 6×3 grid with ten pay lines. The maximum jackpot in the game is 2500x your stake which can be won by triggering the wild stack respin during the free spins bonus round.
