Da Vinci Diamonds
Da Vinci Diamonds slot game review
Da Vinci Diamonds from IGT is one of the most popular Vegas land based slot machines. In this online casino slot version the exciting tumbling reel feature and high rewarding Da Vinci Diamonds symbol have been copied straight off, so that you can experience the Vegas thrill from home or whilst commuting to work via the mobile casino.
The Da Vinci Diamond slot is perfect for the casino player looking for classic and understandable game mechanics. If you are one for fancy graphics and extravagant features, look elsewhere!
Da Vinci Diamonds was one of the first casino slots ever made that uses the innovative Tumbling reels feature.
The concept is simple: all winning symbol combinations in both the main game and Free Spin bonus are cashed in upon win, the symbols then explodes and makes way for new symbols to enter the reels and new win combinations to be made - whilst the total win accumulates.
In other words you can win again and again, the tumbling reels feature remains active until there is no more winning combination on the screen. All wins are awarded from left to right and only the highest line win for each tumble is paid.
Free Spins Bonus
To activate the Free Spin bonus it is required to get 3 bonus symbols in a row on an active bet line. This instantly triggers 6 creative Free Spins worthy of being associated with the brilliant Da Vinci!
The Free Spin bonus optimizes the use of tumbling reels and generous scattered symbols. Winning additional Free Spins is for example much easier since the bonus symbol can now be scattered across the screen to activate more Free Spins. Any 3 bonus symbols can award between 2 and 4 additional free spins and any 5 bonus symbols awards from 6 up to 15 extra spins, which is just brilliant!
The cap for additional Free Spins is set at 300 extra spins during the bonus rounds, which tells a lot about the high potential of actually triggering this.
Scattered art with tumbling reels
In the Free Spin mode the classic Da vinci paintings Mona Lisa, “Portrait of a Musician” and “Lady with an Ermine” from the main game are replaced by its special counterpart in this slot: “La belle ferronniére”, “The Virgin of the Rocks” and “Madonna dei Fusi” which in the Da Vinci Diamonds slot has scattered superpowers.
These can just like the bonus symbol appear anywhere on the reels, with minimum 3 matching symbols needed for a win. All scattered art wins are multiplied by the total bet and only the highest paying symbol per tumble is paid. Combined with the tumbling reels this gives Da Vinci Diamonds slot a truly generous Free Spin bonus mode.
The Da Vinci Diamonds symbol
This online casino slot revolves around it´s highest paying symbol - the Da Vinci Diamonds.
3 in a row diamonds on a winning line pays 100 times the line bet, which is double the amount of the second highest symbol Mona Lisa.
The ultimate goal of this slot is however to get 5 Diamonds on a winning line and cashing in 5000 times the line bet! As a comparison 5 of the Mona lisa symbols “only” pays a 1000 times.
Just like most slots there is also a wild symbol involved which substitutes for all symbols except the bonus. In the Free Spin bonus there are however no wilds, because the scattered painting symbols are already generous enough.
