Subsidiary Double Down Interactive flights famous online and land gambling slot on social networking site
 
International Game Technology has put its social gaming subsidiary Double Down Interactive to work, floating the group's famous online and land gambling slot Da Vinci Diamonds on social networking site Facebook.
 
The move makes Da Vinci Diamonds the group's first game to make an appearance on multiple platforms, from land-based to social, and in the future, on mobile devices as well.
 
The game is now available to social gamers on the Double Down Casino at Facebook, exposing players to the virtual wealth of a Medici, through the game's Tumbling Reels feature, which showcases jeweled symbols that disappear when they are matched, only to be replaced by additional gem elements which are dropped-in to allow for additional points to be won.
 
"Slot players around the globe have made Da Vinci Diamonds a fan favorite since the game first debuted in 2007," said Robert Melendres, IGT executive vice president of emerging businesses this week. "The game's visual appeal, with features that allow for extended play and free spin bonuses, as well as the impressive 20-payline configuration, made it a prime candidate for DoubleDown Casino's catalog of virtual titles."
 
DoubleDown Casino now features more than 20 games that provide casino-style entertainment, ranging from poker to slot tournament play, on Facebook.
