When it came to painting portraits, Leonardo Da Vinci was a real diamond. Here’s a game from IGT that is regarded as one of their very best and combines the work of Da Vinci with precious diamonds. Just which is worth the most, his paintings or the diamonds is a question I don’t know the answer to.
This game came out in 2008 and certainly changed the slot world with its Tumbling Reels feature. It’s a five-reel game that has three rows of symbols and a total of 20 paylines. The way the symbols move is also a bit different here. Rather than the fast spins that you’ll be used to, once you hit the spin button it’s all a bit slower. The symbols just sort of disappear and new one’s drift down hopefully giving you some winning combinations.
Playing the game costs between £0.20 if playing all 20 paylines and £500. That’s a wide range, all you have to do is just work out a financial budget, stick to it and then enjoy playing this great game. If you don’t fancy real money, you can just play for free instead.
Symbols in the game include the Mona Lisa (perhaps she’s smiling because you’ve just had a good win), two other portraits one male and the other female and various coloured gemstones including jade, ruby and amber.
The Pink Gem is the wild symbol in this game. It has the ability to substitute for other symbols in the game and can really help get you some winning combinations. It can’t substitute for the scatter symbols in this game. There’s three of those which is rather generous and these are the Priceless Fine Art symbols. The wild also can’t substitute for the bonus symbol which helps get you into the free spins round.
The Tumbling Reels feature can really help you get some great wins. When you’re lucky enough to get a winning combination, there could be more wins just around the corner. The symbols that have just given you a win will explode leaving a massive gap in the reels. They have to be filled of course so the symbols that were above them tumble down into those empty spaces. The reels are now reassessed and if you’re lucky another winning combination will have been achieved.
This isn’t the most complicated of games but if the Tumbling Reels feature is new to you, a look through the rules and the paytable will be helpful as will some free games. You can also set an autospin of between ten and 50 automated spins.
