Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play Online Slot

June 29, 2017

You would have played many online slots in which symbols in winning combinations disappear. The empty spaces are filled by new symbols and if new winning combinations are formed then the process repeats. Though the player receives payouts each time he pays only for one spin. Today all leading online casino software providers offer video slots with this feature, though under different names.

IGT was one of the first software providers to offer this feature. The video slot was Da Vinci Diamonds, which has become a landmark game in slots history. It can be played at online casinos like Virgin Casino. IGT has named the feature as Tumbling Reels. The symbols used in this video slot game are colourful precious stones and maybe that is the reason for the name Da Vinci Diamonds. IGT has also released a sequel to this slot game titled Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play. The symbols are the same but the Tumbling Reels feature has been enhanced and other features added.

Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play is a 5 reels slot machine with 40 fixed paylines spread over six rows. The first 20 paylines are restricted to the top three rows and the next 20 paylines are restricted to the bottom three rows, creating two independent games. The Tumbling Reels feature manifests within each set of three reels. An additional Tumble Thru feature enables symbols from the top game to tumble down and replace symbols in the bottom game.

Another new feature introduced in Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play was the Extra Paylines Free Spins Bonus. This feature is triggered by three special bonus symbols appearing on reels 1, 2 and 3 in any defined payline. In this feature 20 additional paylines are created, which run across both sections of the reels. The spins are free and the same bet is used for determining the payouts over all 60 paylines. Initially six free spins are awarded but can be retriggered. The Tumbling Reels and Tumble Thru features are active during the free spins. Additional wild symbols are added to the reels in the free spins feature.

IGT was also one of the first software providers to introduce a graphics setting option. This enables players with less powerful computer systems to still enjoy the game. The Best mode has high quality graphics that give smooth performance with the latest desktops and mobile devices. Then there are the High, Medium and Low modes that reduce the graphics quality sequentially but ensure smooth performance on slower systems.
