“Da Vinci Diamonds is the dual in the crown!”
Screw you Tesco. No… Really… F*ck Tesco. With no other option nearby and an appetite to quell, I ventured into the ubiquitous high street blighting store last week with just a pork pie or Scotch egg on my mind.
Sadly, a singular pork pie or Scotch egg was not an option. Instead, I could buy either two scotch eggs, a four pack of mini pork pies, or one jumbo pork pie. I opted to go hungry instead – refusing to give into the evil machinations of the Tesco marketing department.
Now… What (I hear you say) does this have to do with the Renaissance themed ‘sorta slot’ that is the new release from online slot wizards IGT. Well, here’s the deal.
Basically, the game’s developers have taken the incredibly popular original version of the game and doubled down. Instead of three lines of action, we have six. Or – more accurately – two sets of three. To be honest, that’s about all there really is to tell you.
Like Tesco, they have taken a simple online game – like a pork pie – and doubled it. The difference is: unlike Tesco, IGT are doing players a favour and actually bringing some real extra value to the table.
The game works along the same lines as the office ‘work avoider’ classic Bejewelled. Renaissance-themed symbols tumble from the heavens. As you complete winning lines, the symbols crumble and are replaced by new ones. Potentially, you can keep winning and winning.
This does make the game twice as exciting and you can enjoy wins in both the top and bottom halves of the screen. Should you be lucky enough to hit the extra payline bonus, the dual effect swings into positive action with a six line game and 20 extra paylines.
Leonardo Da Vinci was a man of invention and – I have no doubt – if he was around today, he would definitely enjoy a game of the new Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play Slot .
“OMIGOD… I thought I must have had too many Sailor Jerrys last night when I logged on for a bit of Da Vinci Diamond action because – all of a sudden – there were six lines instead of three! I am a big, big, fan of Da Vinci Diamonds and I am LOVIN’ this upgrade. Six lines are definitely better than three. Recommended Recommended (see what I did there…)”
