Snap Drop Feature
The Snap Drop Feature can be triggered at any point in the base game. All the player has to do is land the Snap Drop symbol on the fifth reel and have Diamond Hearts in the Special Reel. If the player lands the Snap Drop symbol with no Diamond Hearts in the Special Reel, this counts as a near miss and does not trigger the feature.
The Snap Drop Feature awards the player with one free re-spin where only Diamond Hearts with multipliers on them appear on the reels. The multiplier on the Diamond Heart is defined by the number on the Hearts in the Special Reel above. If there is no Diamond Heart in the Special Reel above, the reel will not re-spin when the Snap Drop is triggered. Therefore, one to five reels can spin on each Snap Drop trigger and each reel can have between zero and four hearts landing.
After the re-spin, all multipliers on Diamond Hearts on the main reels are summed up and this sum then multiplies the player's total bet.
Diamond Tales™ Feature
The Diamond Tales™ Feature is triggered by 3 Book Bonus Symbols landing on reels 1, 3 and 5.
The player enters the feature with one extra Heart added to every space in the Special Reel. Therefore, the player enters the feature with at least one Heart on every reel of the Special Reel. The player is then awarded 3 Free Spins, which re-trigger to 3 every time a new Diamond Heart lands on the main reels. If the player has 3 spins with no new Diamond Hearts landing, the feature is over.
Diamond Hearts land with the same multiplier on them as the number on the Heart above in the Special Reel.
Red Diamond Hearts
If a Red Diamond Heart lands on a reel, its value will be added to any Red Diamond Hearts that previously landed on the same reel.
Gold Diamond Hearts
Gold Diamond Hearts work the same as Red Diamond Hearts. However, instead of being summed up, the Gold Diamond Heart multiplies any Diamond Hearts that previously landed on the same reel by its value. Then if another new heart lands, the Golden Diamond Heart's updated value is multiplied again by the landing Heart. In each consecutive Chapter of the game one additional Gold Diamond Heart is added to the Diamond Tales™ Feature. Therefore, in the Spring Feature only 1 Gold Diamond Heart is available but in the Swan Feature, up to 5 can land. If the player only has 1 on a Heart in the Special Reel, a Gold Diamond Heart can not land on that reel.
