The secrets of Leonardo DaVinci may or may not be revealed in this exciting sequel to DaVinci Diamonds slots game from High 5 Games.
This free to play slot has five reels and over 240 ways to win, enough so that many fans of the original say that this game is superior to the original. The famed artist is missing several pieces of artwork and it’s your job to help him find them.
Wagers start at just $0.80 coins and go all the way up to $2,000 with a max jackpot of 5,000 x your bet.
There’s plenty of free spins action, bright graphics, and soothing music in the background. Travel back to the time of the Renaissance in this immersive game – perfect to take on the go, as it’s optimized for both Apple and Android devices.
Beginning Da Vinci Ways
The rules of Da Vinci Ways slot game are simple.
Set your wager and determine how many paylines you wish to have for the spin. The reels are bordered in gold, and symbols include sparkling gems and some of the artist’s classic works of art.
You can either manually spin or engage the auto spin feature but be aware that this may not be available in all locations. Even engaging in the tumbling reels bonus feature is simple – just let the symbols fall where they may.
For those with nimble fingers, there’s the ability to stop the reels mid-spin to see if you can make a higher-value match.
Winning happens fairly often in this game. It has a return to the player ratio of 96%, which means that for every 100 coins wagered, you could win back around 96. These are averages for the game, however – some veteran players may see higher payouts, and the possibility of big winnings on the free spins always adds a greater chance to win.
How to Win on DaVinci Ways
Match three symbols along an active payline to win at Da Vinci Ways slots. The colored gems are the lower value symbols, used instead of the standard Vegas 9 through Ace.
Five of the gems will pay out 200 times your wager. There are several of the master’s most famous works of art, with the Mona Lisa as the highest symbol. The payout for this maxes out at 500 times your wager if you get five in a row, although I personally never got that match.
In addition to the games and works of art, there are secret Da Vinci symbols, that when you match them, a special feature of the game unlocks.
These will pay out 5,000 times – yes, 5,000 – your wager so definitely keep a look out for them! They’re scace but well worth it.
Bonus Features on Da Vinci Ways
The free Da Vinci Ways slot game includes a free spins bonus feature. To trigger this, you’ll need the bonus symbols to appear on reels one, two, and three on any active payline. This produces six free spins.
During the free spins round, you may be able to win more free spins, with a maximum of 50 total. The Wild symbol can drop anywhere and substitutes for all of the symbols except for the free spins scatter symbol. I did notice that the wild appeared fairly often, more than other online slots.
In addition to the free spins feature, this game also has a Tumbling Reels feature. Any winning combination will trigger this. Once the tumbling reels start, all the winning combination symbols disappear and become replaced by tumbling symbols. These will match the symbols already on the reels and keep making winning lines until there are no more winning lines to replace.
Players who already enjoy video slots from High 5 games will be familiar with this feature, as it’s in many of their other games.
This bonus is straightforward and easy to understand, keeping the excitement of slots play in the game.
Players that have played the first Da Vinci Secrets games will enjoy the fact that this one offers a similar feel and complementing the theme.
While this game doesn’t have the complex bonus rounds that some other online video slots have, the straightforward play is fun for those who like the thrill of the spinning reels over remembering some of the more complex rules of different bonus features.
All in all, Da Vinci Ways is a lot of fun to play and easy to play on your phone, as the graphics are well drawn.
