Da Vinci Diamonds Slot Machine
As one of the greatest geniuses that the world has ever seen, Leonardo da Vinci was one of those annoying people who excel at literally everything they dabble with, which probably did not sit well with many of his friends, whose own skills must have seemed quite pale in comparison. After all, how the hell do you compete with a man who is a talented musician, engineer, painter, architect, mathematician, inventor and probably a few more things we know nothing about.
In short, Leonardo Da Vinci is the one person you definitely don't want your parents knowing about since you will always come out as an underachiever in comparison.
Thanks to IGT, Mona Lisa is no longer the only Da Vinci painting that we know and we are now familiar with a few more portraits by Leonardo, since the developer used some of his greatest work as the slot's lower value symbols: Lady with an Ermine, La Belle Ferroniere, Madonna with the Yarwinder, Portrait of a Musician and Virgin of the Rocks. The higher value icons are of course the Diamonds and other precious stones.
Now that Art 101 is completed, we can focus on the gameplay. Da Vinci Diamonds has 20 paylines and while the players cannot decrease the number of active lines, the betting level can be selected within the range of $1.00 to $50, making the total bet $1000.
The reels are tumbling, which means that the icons forming the winning combinations disappear from their landing positions and all the symbols above fall into the empty spaces, thus increasing the winning potential. The extended gameplay can return approximately 94.9% of the bet unit.
A faster play is achieved by selecting the Auto Play option with up to 50 auto spins available and if you would like to optimise the graphics quality, the level of sharpness can be set at low, medium, high and best.

Bonus rounds and special features
3 Bonus icons positioned on reels 1 – 3 will trigger 6 Free Spins, with more spins potentially awarded if the same combination lands during the bonus games. For the spins to be re-triggered, the new Bonus symbol combination must land anywhere on the connecting reels, awarding 2 -15 more spins.
The feature is played on the different set of reels (also tumbling) and it will be completed as soon as all of the accumulated spins expire or if the number of Free Spins reaches 300; should that happen, the player will be returned to the base game reels and the winnings settled according to the payout table.
Strong and weak points of Da Vinci Diamonds
Bonus features are definitely not doing justice to the theme and the slot that's named by one of the most brilliant innovators of all times deserved better than just Free Spins and cascading reels.
Tumbling reel-structure is always a welcome addition, especially when the same system is employed in re-triggerable bonus rounds where every little thing that can boost your chances of unlocking more wager-free spins counts.
Expectations are often set high by the theme - needless to say that a lot more than Free Spins and Tumbling reels was anticipated with the Da Vinci Diamond slot. This, however, is not the first time that IGT impressed us with a strong theme that's full of potential and we end up with an average gameplay slot, featuring basic bonuses and low payouts. Of course, a clear line should be drawn between the provider's older slots and their more recent releases, which seem much more promising.
