Da Vinci Diamonds Slot Review

It's often said that IGT make the best slot games, and you might agree once you stop and take note that they are the masterminds behind Cleopatra, Rainbow Riches, Wolf Run and Pixies of the Forest to name a few. And yet before all of these, back in 2008, they brought out Da Vinci Diamonds, which overnight gained itself classic status, thanks mainly to its innovative Tumbling Reels feature. Even today this slot is one of the most played games on and offline in Canada.

The Configuration and Set Up

Da Vinci Diamonds is a classic five reel, twenty payline slot, with fifteen stop spaces (the viewable area of each reel). Based on Renaissance period, this slot takes inspiration from the true master of the period Leonardo Da Vinci. Thankfully this slot doesn’t let this artistic master down. Da Vinci Diamonds top quality visuals have certainly been polished off with a good dose of elegance and beauty. On the reels, rubies and emeralds feature heavily, along with you probably guessed it, the Mona Lisa, Da Vinci’s iconic masterpiece.

The Original Tumbling Reels Feature

As mentioned above the main draw to this slot is the Tumbling Reels feature. Here the symbols drop from the top of the screen, much like in a game of Tetris, rather than spinning on reels. Don’t be alarmed when your winning combinations suddenly explode and disappear! The symbols that have vanished will be replaced by new symbols that keep on falling until there are no more winning combinations. The fun here is that unlike other slots where you are only playing for one spin, there is the possibility here to win over and over again on a single play! This feature, along with the small starting price makes this game very accessible to all types of players, from those looking for simply a little entertainment right up to those looking for big bucks. Players can play from as little as C$0.01 a line up toC$25 a line, meaning that if all 20 paylines activated it will be C$500 a spin. Plus, a nice option if you did want to check out the game before handing over real cash is the free online game demo.

Unlike games such as Pixies of the Forest, Da Vinci Diamonds pays more when it comes to winnings. This is especially true when it comes to the 5,000 coin jackpot, which is triggered by lining up five Da Vinci Diamond symbols.

Special Features and Bonus Rounds

When it comes to special features, the Free Spins Bonus is what should be on the look out for. To trigger this feature you need to line up three bonus symbols on the first three reels. From here you will get six free spins, and if you pick up even more bonus symbols during this period, you are awarded yet more free spins. This is where the game gets exciting – with richer reels and additional scatter pays, this Free Spins Bonus can really pay off!

So while you start off with six free spins, the more bonus symbols you get the more free spins. Below is a quick overview of what‘s on offer:

  • Three Bonus Symbols grants you two, three or four extra free spins
  • Four Bonus Symbols grants you four, six, eight or ten extra free spins
  • Five Bonus Symbols grants you six, eight, ten, twelve or fifteen extra free spins

So with luck, you can win up to an incredible 300 free spins in the bonus feature. Of course you are unlikely to get 300 free spins just like that, but the feature still delivers a great consistent payoff. The nice thing here is that the Tumbling Reels feature is still in action during the free spin rounds meaning you can win time and time again.

Getting Wild

Aside from the Jackpot and Free Spins Bonus there is also the Wild Feature. This Gem Wild symbol, a pink gemstone with the word Wild written on it, does not pay winnings, but it is always a pleasure to see it drop down as it substitutes any missing symbol you need to complete a winning line. Plus, five Gem Wild symbols on any active payline, with a maximum bet can win the top payout of 25,000 credits per line bet. Its good to remember however that the Gem Wild symbol will not help complete winning scatter combinations featuring the Princess Fine Art symbols, nor help activate the Free Spins Bonus round.

The Final Verdict

Over all Da Vinci Diamonds is a winner – a true classic – that epitomises slot game design.
New games come and go, yet this slot has stood firm, and the reason being its great fun with a decent jackpot and regular winnings.
