A fairly popular slot machine from IGT is now getting a sequel, in the form of Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks. The game is an improvement over the original, has some different things to offer, and so both can be played and they will complement each other nicely.
30 paylines are offered by Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks, a 5 reels slot. You will encounter several good features when you play this game, as it offers Tumbling Reels, Giant Portrait icons, up to 36x multipliers and three different versions of free spins. Regular wins pay 5,000x the line bet, but you can get a lot more during the various features.
Betting and Prizes
While using 30 fixed lines, the game asks you to select 40 coins for each bet you place. You may vary the value of those coins, and so you can wager only $0.40 if you want to just see how the game plays, or you can go up to $800. Your highest line bet can apparently reach $20.
If you land the Da Vinci Diamonds logo five times on a single line, its own payout will deliver as much as 5,000x the line bet to you, which would be the jackpot. You can boost the payouts considerably via features, several of which can contribute with multipliers, so they go up to 36x when they’re used together. A win of up to $739,200 is apparently possible.
Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks Slot Features
One of the first features that you will notice in action will be the Tumbling Reels. These are used in a lot of games and they have the role to bring the player more wins, by first removing the symbols that are part of combinations, and then allowing others to come in and try and form new wins.
The Giant Portraits is a feature that could get you 2x2 symbols with Portraits on them, and when you have them in a combo a 2x to 4x multiplier is also applied. The Mystery Portrait is a random feature which can transform a Giant Portrait that didn’t pay, into one that brings you a win.
The scatter symbol will be the bringer of major features here, as by appearing on the first three reels it triggers a Masterworks Gallery Picker. You choose the free spins and the extra features that they come with. You could have more Giant Portrait symbols appear while they pay as scatters, you could get up to 36x multipliers through these icons, or you could get more wilds and portraits, while also receiving multipliers from them.
Free spins can be retriggered several times, up to 300 rounds being possible in total. The Second Chance also helps that way, possibly giving you 1 to 6 extra free spins when you reach the final round of the initial feature.
Theme & Design
The life and works of Leonardo Da Vinci have inspired this series of slot machines from IGT, and people seem to be liking it. The graphics are not that different from the original Da Vinci Diamonds slot. There are three major paintings that Da Vinci created, there is Da Vinci, Mona Lisa and various gemstones (ranging from diamonds to sapphires, emeralds or rubies, among others). Even though the title includes the word Masterworks, the graphics that the slot itself uses don’t even come close. I’d call it more of an average looking title, in the usual style that we expect to see from IGT.
Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks is a good sequel for the original IGT slot, it has big rewards to give away and some very exciting features.
