Da Vinci Diamonds
Da Vinci Diamonds by IGT
We’d put the number of legendary titles in the IGT gaming range somewhere around the half a dozen mark. The likes of Cleopatra and Siberian Storm are well up there, and joining them is one of the most simple but effective gaming treats in the online world in the shape of Da Vinci Diamonds. The game may not exactly be the very best looking by modern standards, even with the presence of the Mona Lisa on the reels. However, the gameplay itself is something that keeps players on land, online and even on mobiles coming back for more, time and time again.
For many developers, twenty win lines could be considered somewhat standard. With IGT, however, it seems a little limited but you’ll soon see why they don’t want to offer up too many as soon as you encounter the Tumbling Reels feature. This is in effect at all times, including the base game, and sees symbols that form part of a winning combination disappearing and being replaced by more from the top of the screen. This can of course lead to consecutive wins and the reels will continue to tumble for as long as there’s a new win on the board.
The Reels Keep Tumbling during Free Spins
As with many classic IGT slots, the bonus round on offer consists of free spins and this can be particularly lucrative thanks to Tumbling Reels, which could be considered as additional spins in their own right. You’ll need three bonus symbols to trigger the round and there’s more to the action than the spins themselves simply being free. Three additional high value symbols are added to the board and they alone can lead to some genuinely excellent prizes.
Da Vinci Diamonds almost single-handedly made the concept of Tumbling Reels a viable proposition for slots developers, with games like NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest taking things to the next level while offering a similar experience. However, there is definitely something to be said for authentic IGT action and the fact that this game is now available online and on mobiles ensures that it is well worth a spin or two if you enjoy fast paced slots action.
