Da Vinci Diamonds: Dual Play is a brilliant online video slot machine game from IGT (International Game Technology) that was released in October 2011. This video slot game has 5 reels and 40 pay lines. Da Vinci Diamonds: Dual Play is the sequel to the popular Da Vinci Diamonds slot game which is themed around the life, philosophy, art and masterpieces of the famous Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci.
Most people knew Da Vinci to be a great artist and architect, and he was renowned for his inventions and one very famous painting (The Mona Lisa). What most of us do not know is that the man had a certain fondness for precious items of great value. Thus, the Da Vinci Diamonds and the Da Vinci Diamonds: Dual Play slots were created by IGT, simple yet straight-to-the-point slots games that will surely interest you to play and stay a while!
Slightly different from usual slot games, when you “spin” the reels on the Da Vinci Diamonds: Dual Play slot game, instead of spinning, the icons tend to fall or tumble down. Whenever you hit a win, the icons involved in that win will be eliminated, and the space that is left by them gets filled up with more new icons that seem to fall down from the top, courtesy of the game’s Tumbling Reels™ Feature. This means that you can get multiple wins in just a single spin! Also, to make the gameplay more exciting, the Tumble Thru™ Feature was created, wherein the symbols from the top game tumble down to replace the symbols in the bottom game, which results to even more winning combinations! Most people love playing this slot game because not only can they get multiple winning combinations in one spin, but they can also activate the Extra Paylines Free Spin Bonus Feature game without much effort! The concept is so ingeniously implemented that it is worth seeing for yourself!
One of the best things that slot players really love about IGT online slot games is that they can play the game instantly, and they don’t have to download anything at all!
