Play enough slots and sooner or later they all begin to look the same. Dedicated slots fans face the unique problem of finding slot machines that will entertain them even after they’ve played a hundred variations of what is essentially the same game, so it’s just as well that the Da Vinci Diamonds slot brings something a little different to the table.
On the surface, the Da Vinci Diamonds slot looks just like any other slot game such as Rainbow Riches, Cleopatra Slot, Monopoly Plus slot and Pixies of the Forest Slot – five reels adorned with symbols based on the Renaissance period and on Da Vinci’s work in particular; beautiful antique portraits combined with bright jewels including rubies, pearls, emeralds and of course diamonds. The slot has 20 paylines which is good news for beginners who may not want to bet too much per spin, but if you’re an experienced slot player then the option of increasing your bet per line is a good idea – there’s a maximum bet of £500 per line which can yield you a whopping jackpot of 250,000 coins.
Like most slots, it also has a wild symbol which can help you complete winning combinations, and a bonus symbol that triggers a free spins round. The free spins round consists of six free spins and is able to be retriggered again and again, up to a maximum of 300 free spins.
So if it’s similar to a lot of slots, why should you choose to play Da Vinci Diamonds slot?
The difference lies in a feature called ‘Tumbling Reels’, which is something that is so inventive that players often don’t want to go back to playing regular slots afterwards! How it works is that every time you form a winning combination, the symbols that make up that combination explode, leaving room for other symbols to ‘tumble down’ from above. With those symbols in place, the slot machine recalculates to see if you’ve formed any new winning combinations. That means that with a single spin you can win multiple times with no extra effort or coins on your behalf.
It’s an incredibly interesting and lucrative game, and with the Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play version available you can easily double your fun!
