Leonardo Da Vinci was one of the greatest painters of the Renaissance, if not of all time, as I'm sure you already know. And that's not all. He was also equally gifted in the fields of science, music, invention, and writing. In fact, he was considered one of the finest examples of Renaissance Man, the other being the multi-talented Leon Battista Alberti, a famous architect, painter, classicist, poet, scientist, and mathematician of the time who was also no slouch on a horse.
What all this has to do with diamonds, I don't know. But in the fascinating world of online slot themes, reality and historical accuracy are not a big deal, so who cares? IGT makes use of both the master painter and shiny precious stones in Da Vinci Diamonds. And to great effect.
This 5x3 slot has 20 fixed paylines to land winning combinations on and a Free Spins round which will bring a bit of culture into your lives, as well as the chance to win some decent rewards.
The paytable features three different shaped and coloured diamonds as the low pays. Then there are portraits by the great artist, including the Mona Lisa, as premiums, and the game's logo is the highest paying of the regular symbols. The betting range is from 0.20 to 200.00 for the total bet. This means the range for the line bet, which is used to calculate wins, is from 0.01 to 10.00.
The Wild symbol in this game is a purple diamond in a very ornate setting. It will do what Wilds do and substitute for other symbols to form wins.
The Scatter in the base game is just the word Bonus, and it will trigger the Free Spins, where it is joined by some extra symbols, which I'll tell you all about below.
The Free Spins bonus triggers when three of the bonus symbols land across reels 1, 2, and 3. This gives six Free Spins, and don’t be disappointed with this measly number. The round retriggers easily, with a possible 300 spins to be won. This is thanks to the addition of 3 more portraits to the reels that act as Scatter pay symbols, awarding multiples of the total bet and more Free Spins when three or more are in view. The rest of the symbols change as well, with three coloured diamonds, one unpolished one and the game logo awarding line wins.
Every win in the base game and the Free Spins are followed by the Tumbling Reels feature, which removes the winning symbols and adds a new one to the reels, possibly resulting in further wins,
Da Vinci Diamonds has just enough in the way of special features to keep gameplay interesting. And while medium volatility means fairly regular wins, most are on the low side, so always set a loss limit before you start playing.
