Like one of Leonardo Da Vinci’s paintings, you will always want to see the next. IGT’s original Da Vinci Diamonds slot proved so popular that it was only a matter of time before the American gaming giant released a sequel. And so to Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play, which sees the symbols and Renaissance styling that proved so popular in the first game return, but over two sets of five reels. This gives us two sets of 20 paylines, ultimately delivering 40 paylines and stretching up to 60 paylines when we trigger the Free Spins Bonus Game. The Tumbling Reels™ feature returns, now with the Tumbling Thru™ feature.
This means that any symbols that form winning combos disappear to be replaced by new symbols tumbling from above the reels, but because the two reel sets are above and below each other, any symbols that disappear on the lower reel set causes symbols from above to tumble through, creating more opportunities for new winning combos. The classic Da Vinci Portraits, Gems and Da Vinci Diamonds game logo make up our game symbols, while the ornate Wild substitutes for all symbols except Scatters.
As in its predecessor, the Free Spins feature in Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play triggers when we land three or more Extra Paylines Bonus Scatters on an active payline. This time, though, the Scatters must land on reels 1, 2 and 3. Now, we enjoy the additional top-level of 60 paylines, played out across the same number of reels and the same bet-per-line as the triggering spin but with 20 extra paylines to turn those frustrating non-winning combos into winners.
As in the first slot in this series, we can also earn additional free spins, this time by landing three Scatters on reels 1, 2 and 3 throughout the bonus feature. We can earn additional spins up to a maximum of 300 free spins, which, if we land anywhere close to that many, would put our winnings into the same kind of bracket of fame as one of Da Vinci’s most celebrated paintings.
The Mona Lisa smiles her knowing smile, though ours would be much more enigmatic if we were to land even a smidgen of the 300 free spins that would be the max bonus offering from the Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play Free Spins bonus feature. While the number of spins is jaw-dropping and the additional 20 paylines active during the bonus round welcome, the Scatter payouts enjoyed by the high-paying Portraits in the original Da Vinci Diamonds mobile slot game is a feature that misses out here. Still, this is a worthy sequel and one of which Da Vinci himself would no doubt be proud.
