Da Vinci Diamonds Video Slot Review
Da Vinci Diamonds is a classic video slot with 5 reels and 20 paylines. Powered by IGT, the game is based on the beauty and opulence of the Renaissance period – this is a period known for its innovation and creativity. Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa was painted in this area and inspired this popular slot game. The game caters to all players as you can play from 1p a line to £25 a line meaning that if you play all 20 paylines it will be 20p a spin to £500 a spin.
Da Vinci Diamonds uses the Tumbling Reels feature – symbols fall from above rather than spinning upon reels. If you get a winning combination, the winning symbols disappear with new symbols replacing them. This means that you can form winning combinations again and again which will increase your winning potential.
Look out for the Bonus symbol as 3 of these on reels 1, 2 and 3 will trigger the Free Spins Bonus feature. You will start off with 6 free spins but you can get more free spins if you get more bonus symbols – here is what you can get in total:
- 3 Bonus Symbols will earn you 2, 3 or 4 extra free spins
- 4 Bonus Symbols will earn you 4, 6, 8 or 10 extra free spins
- 5 Bonus Symbols will earn you 6, 8, 10, 12 or 15 extra free spins
If luck is on your side, you could get up to 300 free spins in the bonus feature. It’s quite unlikely that you will get 300 as the maximum I’ve earned is 85. Still, this resulted in a great payoff. I do like the fact the Tumbling Reels feature applies in the free spins feature where I’ve had some good wins from just a few free spins.
Da Vinci Diamonds is still one of the most popular slots on the internet and has therefore earned it a classic status. You won’t trigger the feature often though but it tends to pay big when it does. I have played Da Vinci Diamonds quite a bit over the years but it doesn’t have the same appeal to me as IGT’s Cleopatra II (often compared in the same breath) – if you like the Tumbling Reels feature, you should try NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest which has a very similar Avalanche Reels feature.
