Many software developers have game series which they are known by, Bally have the QuickHit series of games, WMS has the ever popular Buffalo slot and IGT are best known for two particular classic slots in their collection, Da Vinci Diamonds and Double Diamonds. It’s those two slots which come together in marriage to form the Double Da Vinci Diamonds slot, produced for IGT by online software developer High 5 Games, this game is largely aimed at the online casino market for fans of IGT’s existing land based casino slots.
All the original ‘diamond’ themed games from IGT, Da Vinci Diamonds, Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play and Double Diamond have been released as online games subsequent to their use as land slots and have proven very popular. Double Da Vinci Diamonds is the equivalent of a straight to DVD movie in the film world as this title is not as yet available to play in bricks and mortar casinos but has gone out to a wide range of online gambling houses.
The game picks the best features from IGT’s current catalogue, the 5x3 reel setup with 40 pay-lines is straightforward enough and base game play isn’t massively rewarding, like so many modern slots you will need to trigger the bonus rounds to get decent pay-outs. They do have the potential to be very rewarding, with the popular tumbling reels feature available in both the free spins games and the base round and IGT’s newer split symbols at work on both the high pay symbols and, more crucially on the diamond wild.
The theme might be a little overplayed but some fans will believe there is no such thing as too much of a good thing, personally I feel that the tumbling reels feature is a great anticipation builder to have in a base game round though I would rather play it on a 99 line slot such as IGT’s Pixies of the Forest, which has the added benefit of a more unusual theme. The same applies for the split symbols mechanic which is better represented on the IGT Cat’s slot.
Overall, Double Da Vinci Diamonds is a solid slot release which combines IGT’s most popular game features with one of their signature themes, it’s designed, unlike many of their slots, to be fully mobile compatible and that will give it an edge in accessibility to all regions where the game is available either as a free to play slot or a real money machine.
US Players will sadly struggle a little to find a game which offers everything this game does in an alternative playable slot for their market. BetSoft’s Diamond Dream’s slot or the similar Diamond Jackpot slot is likely the closest you will find in theme, they both lack a little in the playability in comparison although it must be said the production quality level is far higher than all but IGT’s biggest branded slot collaborations.
