Davinci Diamonds – Slot Mining!
If you’re a slot player and been to the Meccas of Vegas or Macau, you’ll probably be familar with Davinci Diamonds. I played it first at the Wynn in Vegas and again at the amazing Venetian in Macau and I couldn’t quite make up my mind if I liked it or not but thought I better add a heads up to Online Casinos & Slot Machines [.co.uk] at least as it’s a recognisable game and features “Tumbling Reels”!
Now, Wagerworks – a wholly-owned subsiduary of slot machine manufacturer IGT – have released the anticipated online version and amazingly, on time too! It is now available to play online at Virgin Casino, Blue Square and PaddyPower Games, although unfortunately for Americans you can’t play Wagerworks casinos (it’s the law!. Also available now is the Davinci Diamond freeplay slot – but again, no Americans
For those that aren’t familiar with Davinci Diamonds, it’s a slightly new concept following a similar principle to “Gems” – a “tumbling reels” feature that means when a win is lined up, it pays out, explodes, and the reels drop down potentially revealing another win, ad infinitum. The idea has also been copied by Microgaming in it’s new “Tomb Raider 2 – Secret Of The Sword” slot game. The slot also features a free spins bonus round – 3 “bonus” symbols on a payline on reels 1, 2 and 3 award 6 free spins, with retriggers also awarding extra spins (random).
The graphics and music in the online version of Davinci Diamonds are identical to the IGT version, as indeed is the gameplay. If I’m honest, the tumbling reels and the award of only 6 free spins, plus teh way you need to line up bonus symbols adjacent to one another aren’t really my cup of tea, but it was fun testing it and I’d probably play it occasionally, but I prefer the IGT slots like “Cleopatra“, “Wolf Run” or “Elvis A Little More Action” (essentially a 50 line version of Wolfie) myself. Davinci Diamonds is at least a “low variance” slot, so at least your money goes further, but it’s hard to get any win over 50x.
A great slot for entertainment, but with limited long-term appeal IMO.
