Double Da Vinci Diamonds is the sequel to the hugely popular Da Vinci Diamonds slot (by IGT weirdly) and comes with the same heady blend of quality features and sleek looks. Look out for tumbling reels, double symbols and a free spins bonus round. Play this 5 reel, 40 payline title from High 5 Games from between 40p and £400 per spin.

“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” appears to have been the motto of the High 5 Games developers as far as Double Da Vinci Diamonds is concerned – the sequel looks remarkably similar to the IGT created original. The reels contain the same 3 Da Vinci paintings – namely Lady With An Ermine, Portrait of a Musician and of course the famous Mona Lisa.

The big difference this time out is that the reels contain split double symbols – yes, the Mona Lisa can have 2 heads! The double symbols mean that it’s possible to have 10 symbols combinations with some impressive payouts on offer if you hit one.

A 10 symbol Mona Lisa will earn you a 5,000-coin payday. The gemstone symbols are all present and correct too. There is also a wild which substitutes for everything apart from the Free Games symbol. When the wild hits, it counts as a split symbol.

Double Da Vinci Diamonds comes with the same Tumbling Reels feature as the original – after every winning spin, the successful symbols will be blasted away and replaced by the symbol above for a second payout consideration and hopefully another winner. The tumbling reels continue as long as there’s a winning combination on show.

There is also a Free Games Bonus feature on offer – find 3 Free Games symbols on reels 1, 2 and 3 and you’ll trigger the feature and be awarded anywhere between 6 and 16 free spins. A second wild is added to the reels for the feature, further boosting your winning opportunities. The tumbling reels play out during the bonus feature too which can prove a nice extra if you manage to get on a decent roll.

Just like its predecessor, the variance in Double Da Vinci Diamonds is on the high side so some caution is recommended. This art-themed slot offers a good mix of impressive visuals and quality features. The action flows nicely and there’s plenty of action.

Split symbols apart, there’s little difference between the original and sequel. We liked the first outing for Da Vinci and his diamonds. Double Da Vinci Diamonds is a worthy follow up. I also recommend Van Gogh (by High 5 Games) which is a carbon copy of Da Vinci Diamonds but based on a different artist.
