Assemble the cryptex to trigger the bonus round that awards 8, 12 or 16 free spins with wild multipliers that can boost payouts by 2x, 3x or 4x.

There’s a mechanical feel to The Da Vinci Device. You’ll hear the reels whir as they drop the symbols into position. Those symbols include drawn A to J symbols alongside some of Da Vinci’s best-known inventions and works of art. They include the primitive helicopter and the Mona Lisa as well as a self-portrait. The globe is the best symbol, awarding 16 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on adjacent reels. The famous Vitruvian Man picture is the game’s wild. This substitutes for all the standard symbols.
There are 5 different scatter symbols. Each of them can land on 1 reel only. Together, they form a cryptex. Land 3, 4 or 5 pieces of the cryptex on the same spin and you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature - on offer here are 8, 12 or 16 free spins. Joining the action here are 2x, 3x and 4x multiplier wilds which double, treble or quadruple the payout whenever they form part of a winning combination.
Given the inspiration for this slot it’s actually rather simple. The design is pretty basic and the Mona Lisa and self-portraits aren’t quite as detailed as you might expect. The rest of the imagery is nicely done though, as is the haunting backing track.
The features here are as straightforward as the design. The main attraction is undoubtedly the Free Spins feature where the wild multipliers can have a big impact if they fall nicely – up to 1,600 times your stake. A slot called The Da Vinci Device conjured up thought of complicated gameplay and features.
This is far more basic but none the worse for that. If you’re after a simple slot with an impressive pedigree, then you’ll find that in The Da Vinci Device. I would suggest you try 1x2 Gaming’s I Am The Law which is better in many ways.
