Leonardo da Vinci was a great man, known mostly for his artwork and inventions. Having lived predominantly in the 1400s, he was considered ahead of his time. Something else that could also be considered slightly ahead of its time is the casino game of Slingo, which combines online slots and bingo. Slingo Originals is the inventor of this spectacle, and now this online casino games studio has another title to go with the rest called Slingo Da Vinci Diamonds. It's actually based on the online slot of the same name by IGT, and has a maximum potential prize of 5,000x your stake.
You’ll open Slingo Da Vinci Diamonds to a 5x5 grid (25 windows) full of random numbers. There is actually a 6th row to the grid right at the bottom, and this is a row that will spin to reveal five random numbers while the rest of the rows above remain still. The objective, like in online bingo, is to match as many numbers from the bottom row with the 5 rows in the grid above.
A ladder up the left of the screen will show you how much cash you're winning. Speaking of rewards, Slingo Da Vinci Diamonds has an excellent possible cash reward of up to 5,000x your stake. As far as Slingo titles go, that’s pretty good. This release also has a respectable RTP of 96.2%, and although theoretical and not to be lived your life by, it stands higher than most Slingo counterparts.
As mentioned, a round of Slingo Da Vinci Diamonds will see you need to match numbers from the bottom row with the 5 rows of 25 numbers above it. Before this, you'll need to choose how much you'd like to stake, after which the round will start. A round consists of 8 spins of the bottom reel. To get to the possible cash prizes, you need to land Slingos, which means chalking off five numbers on a vertical, horizontal or diagonal line. Landing 3 or more Slingos will see you win a reward.
Landing 8 -12 Slingos will trigger free spins, just like you get in online slot games. You'll go to a special 5x3 grid with unique icons and play a slots-free spins feature, with all wins paid out to you. Achieving 8 Slingos means 6 free spins, 9 gives 8 free spins, 10 gives 10 free spins and 12 awards 12 free spins. The more free spins you get, the bigger a multiplier applied to all wins.
You’ll see that Slingo Originals will always try to make each Slingo title unique in some way or another. It usually comes down to the added value each release comes with, and here you have the free spins. Players of slots online will obviously really enjoy this due to the free spins, and we’re quite sure all other iGamers will also come around when they trigger the bonus play.
