There is hardly a person in the world who has not heard of Leonardo Da Vinci. A man of great intellect, he is famous for his great art like the Mona Lisa and the Last Supper. But Da Vinci’s work encompassed many different fields, one of them being a great deal of inventions – he was even said to have designed tanks and flying machines long before they would be feasible to make. As such, it is no surprise that this great thinker may have hidden away a great treasure for the sharp and quick-witted to find, and that is precisely what we will do. The slot is played on a 5×3 playing field with 25 fixed paylines. Bonuses include Map Quest, free spins with progressive multipliers and a prize picker special feature.
The slightly enigmatic music helps set the mood, though we do wish a bit more effort was put into the background image. As it stands, all we see are small segments of what looks like a cluttered table. If the reels were zoomed back slightly, it would look much better. The user interface is the standard one used in all Pragmatic Play releases.
Da Vinci’s Treasure is played on a standard 5×3 playing field, with pays that are granted for collecting three or more identical symbols, from left to right, following one of the 25 fixed paylines. The game has several bonuses available, as well as a gamble feature to increase your wins.
Players can wager between $0.25 up to $125 per spin, which is a great bet spread for both casual gamblers and high rollers alike. The title has high variance and an RTP of 96.53%, and that is above average compared to other releases by the same developer. The maximum win is a massive 48,000x.
Symbols include playing card royals – 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, as well as a crossbow, a fancy looking device, a backpack, a richly decorated book, and a handsome archaeologist. Special icons include Leonardo Da Vinci as a Wild, and a puzzle device as a Scatter used to trigger the special features.
Map Quest has 23 points and a wheel of fortune. Each point grants a cash prize. Spinning the wheel of fortune will give players a number between one to five, and a game over section. If the wheel lands on a number, the archaeologist will move by that amount on the map. If you reach the end, you receive the strongest cash prize. If you get the Game Over, the bonus ends, and you only collect the cash prizes you received so far.
Gamblers start with twelve free spins with a 1x starting multiplier. After each free spin, the multiplier increases by one. Collecting three Scatters on the second, third and fourth reel while the bonus is active grants twelve more extra turns, for a total of 60 free spins.
Prize picker simply has the players choosing between one of three different prizes.
