Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks sees the favourite Da Vinci Diamonds get a makeover in this IGT-powered sequel. With 5 reels and 30 paylines, you can play this game from 40p to £800 a spin on all devices. Using the iconic Tumbling Reels feature, it comes with Giant Portrait symbols that give you multipliers up to 4x or transform to give you more wins. There’s a Masterworks Gallery where you get 3 unique free spins features to suit your style with portrait symbols paying as scatters, boosted multipliers up to 36x and giant 2x wilds.
Visually, Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks looks very similar to the original Da Vinci Diamonds slot – based on the original renaissance man (Leonardo Da Vinci), the game focuses on 3 of the painter’s masterworks including the Mona Lisa. Symbols on the reels include gemstones such as diamonds, emeralds, amethysts, topazes, sapphires, rubies and pearls. You’ll also see Mona Lisa, Madona and Leonardo Da Vinci himself.
The Mona Lisa is the most valuable standard symbol giving you 25 times your stake for 5 across a payline. Look out for the Da Vinci Diamonds symbol as this rewards you with 125 times your stake for 5 on a payline.
Like the original, Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks comes with the Tumbling Reels feature – when you get a winning combination, the contributing symbols disappear. The empty spaces as filled as symbols ‘tumble’ from above thus allowing you to win again and again from every spin – the tumbles only stop when no win is formed.
There’s a Giant Portraits feature whereby giant 2×2 Portrait symbols appear – if 1 of them is part of a win, a multiplier of 2x, 3x or 4x is applied. The game also comes with a Mystery Portrait feature which is triggered randomly – a non-winning Giant Portrait symbol may transform into a different Giant Portrait symbol to give you a win.
The main action takes place via the Masterworks Gallery picker which is entered when 3 bonus scatters appear anywhere on reels 1, 2 and 3 – this will give you 6 free spins. You then choose 1 Portrait symbol to determine which free spins feature and what Portrait symbol you’ll play with:
- Portrait Scatters Bonus feature – more Giant Portrait symbols appear than in the base game with Portrait symbols paying as scatters when 4 or more appear on the reels.
- Boosted Multipliers Bonus feature – more Giant Portrait symbols on the reels appear with bigger multipliers on offer – they can reach 4x, 5x or 6x when a Giant Portrait symbol is part of a winning combination. If you get more than 1, multipliers can combine to the tune of 36x.
- Gigantic 2x Wilds Bonus feature – more wilds and Giant Portrait symbols appear in the feature than in the base game. 2×2 wild symbols can appear on all free spins and double your outcome when part of a win. If more than 1 Gigantic Wild appears, the win is multiplied by the combination of the multipliers.
Now, in each of the free spins features, you can win more free spins by getting bonus scatters on reels 1, 2 and 3 – you can retrigger multiple times with a whopping 300 free spins in total up for grabs. Finally, there’s a Second Chance Spins feature – after the last free spin in any of the free spins features, 1 to 6 extra free spins may be added to your tally. This can only happen once every time a free spins feature is played.
I really like Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks – it looks great, has an abundance of bonus features and can pay up to 924.8 times your stake on every free spin involving a 36x multiplier. This medium variance slot may be a sequel but it matches up against the original and is sure to become just as popular.
