Introduction to Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play
Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play is a 40-payline slot game from the developers at IGT. A variant on the hugely successful Da Vinci Diamonds, this game has a lot in common with its predecessor and some additional features of its very own. It also boasts double the reel spaces, hence the term ‘dual play’, with a 5x6 reel table split into lower and upper halves and double the number of paylines. This game features the excellent Tumble Thru feature alongside the Tumbling Reels for extra wins. Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play has a high win of 5,000x, an RTP of 94.3 per cent, and low variance.
Review / first impressions
Most players will already have had a spin on Da Vinci Diamonds at some point before progressing to this slot and will notice quite quickly that the reel spaces are doubled, as are the paylines. The game design is undeniably elegant, boasting images of some of Da Vinci’s finest portraits and a number of stunning gems. As gameplay starts, players will begin to enjoy the Tumbling Reels feature quite soon - this is effectively a type of respin that can massively increase base game wins. It is a charming game, with enough going on to keep things interesting but not so much that it bamboozles players. It is an absolutely perfect choice for art lovers or those looking for something a bit different.

Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play slot graphics
The 5x6 reel table sits to the right of the screen, encased in an ornate gold frame. The symbols are made up of both Da Vinci paintings and valuable gems. The highest paying symbols are the game logo and three famous portraits by Da Vinci: Mona Lisa, Portrait of a Musician and Cecilia Gallerani. The lower scoring symbols are three gems: an emerald, a ruby and a yellow sapphire. The background is a sumptuous red wallpaper and to the left of the reels is a frame within which the bonus features are explained.
Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play game theme
The idea behind the game is essentially the same theme as the original Da Vinci Diamonds. There is no question that it was an odd but inspired choice to juxtapose the world of Da Vinci’s art with the concept of diamonds and gems. This may sound strange, but it just works. Da Vinci was one of the world’s most influential painters who lived in Italy in the 15th and 16th centuries. He was also a theorist, inventor, scientist, naturalist and musician; however, his name is associated most commonly with his portrait of Mona Lisa. This Florentine noblewoman smiled as her portrait was drawn, helping to create one of the most famous works of art of all time. Today she sits behind toughened glass in the Louvre in Paris; however, in this slot game, her image spins by frequently and can help you to land some seriously big wins.
How to play Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play slots
This game features 40 fixed paylines, which makes setting a wager a straightforward procedure. Simply choose a bet per line of between $1 and $50 to give you a total bet of between $40 and $2,000. In the free play mode, things are a little more fun. As you are not playing with real money, you can wager up to $3,000 per line - that’s a total wager of $120,000!
Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play game volatility
This game has low volatility. This means that wins are nice and frequent but tend to be smaller, with a lower chance of the medium to big wins. Low volatility games are absolutely perfect for those who are ‘low rollers’ - the more cautious payers who would rather win a modest amount than go for an all or nothing approach. Low volatility games are also a good choice for slots beginners.
How to win at Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play slots
Wins are paid out when players land three or more matching symbols on one of the 40 paylines. During the free spins, matching symbols need to appear on one of the 60 paylines.
Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play bonus features
All payline wins instigate the Tumbling Reels feature, whereby all the winning symbols disappear from the reels and their spaces fill with symbols that tumble down. Any additional payline wins that occur as a result of the symbols that tumble down are added to the total win. The reels will continue to add tumbling symbols until there are no more payline wins.
Unlike the original Da Vinci Diamonds, which also features Tumbling Reels, this game features the Tumbling Thru bonus, whereby symbols tumble down randomly from the top half of the reels to the lower half. Tumble Thru takes place in the base game and can pleasingly happen at any time.
The game also boasts a wild symbol, depicted by a gem framed in gold and with the world ‘wild’ across it. This substitutes for all other symbols apart from the bonus symbol.
The bonus symbol has ‘extra paylines bonus’ written across it. This symbol triggers the free spins bonus (see below).
Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play strategy and tips
There are no strategies for players to make more gains. The game is powered with the help of an RNG (random number generator) to ensure fairness, which means there is no way to manipulate the game in your favour. A slot game would not be a slot game if you could cheat!
We do have some excellent tips for limiting your losses, however. With all 40 paylines activated for every spin, aim for a low wager to enable your budget to last longer. If you are lucky enough to get a high win, consider walking away from the game and enjoy your winnings; alternatively, play in free play mode right here at Online Slots NZ, where we offer demo mode for this and many other IGT slots alongside hundreds of titles from other slots developers.
