The DaVinci Diamonds slot breaks the mould and uses a novel "Gems" style delivery with the reels cascading into place. IGT call this concept "Tumbling Reels" and have actually started to introduce it into other slot games. How this works is that when you get a winning spin, the winning symbols explode and the reels drop to potentially reveal further wins - a feature since adopted by Microgaming on their Tomb Raider 2 slot. There is a free spins bonus on the DaVinci Diamonds slot, triggered by getting the 3 bonus symbols on Reels 1, 2 and 3 on a payline but you only get 6 free spins (or "tumbles" would be more accurate I guess!). And like many IGT slots, Da Vinci Diamonds is a fairly high variance (high risk) so expect some mean streaks! That said, if you can budget properly and ride out the lean periods, the online version of the Davinci Diamonds slot has an expected return of 94.93% at the casinos listed in the grid above.

Watch out too for IGT's "Davinci Diamonds Dual Play" slot which arrived online at the end of September 2011. It's an interesting take on the original, with two seperate Davinchi screens combining to provide extra paylines in the free spin bonus.

If you like the "tumbling reels" type of slot game then there are two more slots that I would draw your attention two. The first one, which unfortunately I don't have here at Casinos Vegas, is called "Dungeons & Dragons Crystal Caverns" which, like Davinci Diamonds, is a Wagerworks/IGT slot with a similar theme to Dungeons & Dragons Fortress of Fortune. The second slot isn't actually a tumbling reels slot in regular play, but it does have a free spins bonus which uses the same concept. This is the excellent Thunderstruck II slot which you can play here at OCV. Those are the only online slots at OCV with the tumbling reels concept though.
