Virgin Casino was bought out by Gamesys a few months ago and, as a result, the website and offering has changed slightly. One negative is that they have removed a lot of the slots offered by Virgin Casino including games from Microgaming, Playtech and Ash Gaming.
The good news is that they still offer you most of their IGT-powered slots such as Cleopatra, Monopoly Plus, Kitty Glitter and Siberian Storm. They have other slots like Zuma, Deal or No Deal and X Factor. You can only play new IGT slots like Elvis The King, Monopoly Dream Life and Ghostbusters.
I love IGT slots for many reasons but you’ll be hard pressed to find a more popular game than the Da Vinci Diamonds slot. This classic is one of the most popular slots in Las Vegas and is based on the Renaissance period. The game is based on Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa painting and can be played from just 20p a spin.
The game benefits from the Tumbling Reels feature – symbols fall from the top rather than spin. When you have a winning spin, the contributing symbols disappear and are replaced by new symbols. This means you can win time and time again from just 1 spin! The feature is so popular that it has inspired many other slot games to offer similar features (such as NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest).
The symbol to look out for is the Bonus symbol as 3 on reels 1, 2 and 3 will activate the Free Spins Bonus feature – you are rewarded with 6 free spins initially but you can get more by obtaining bonus symbols on the reels. 3 Bonus symbols will give you up to 4 free spins, 4 Bonus symbols will give you up to 10 extra free spins and 5 Bonus symbols will give you up to 15 extra free spins. In total, you can get a maximum 300 free spins. For more details and to play for free, read the Da Vinci Diamonds slot review.
Virgin Casino welcomes new players with a 200% first deposit bonus up to £200 – basically if you deposit from £10 to £100, you will receive a double your money bonus. If you were to deposit £100, you would receive £200 free. Wagering requirements are 40 times the bonus amount which is good.
