Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks from IGT: Slot Review - enjoy even more explosive wins!

Travel back in time to the Renaissance period once more in this reworked version of a classic online slot.

Just recently we reviewed the classic online slot Da Vinci Diamonds and found it to be a joy to play with plenty of bonus features and tempting cash prizes on offer. Da Vinci Diamonds is a hugely popular online slot that started life as a physical slot machine in Las Vegas and revolves around the exquisite art that Leonardo Da Vinci created throughout the Renaissance period. This was a moment in time when art and creativity were at an all-time high. Top software provider IGT has now released a Masterworks version of this slot that’s set to reinvigorate and inject new life into a much-loved game. Read on to find out if this remastered version is worth taking one more trip back in time?

Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks is a 5 reel slot with 30 paylines that includes Giant Portrait Symbols, Tumbling Reels, Boosted Multipliers, and Free Spins.

Special Features

The first thing that you will notice when you play this slot is that it looks very similar to the original Da Vinci Diamonds game as it features symbols such as Mona Lisa, Madonna, and a bunch of different coloured gem stones. The highest paying symbol in the game is the Da Vinci Diamond symbol as if you land 5 of these symbols on a winning payline then you will win a nice payout worth 125X your original wager. The Wild symbol is illustrated by an ornate gold frame with the word ‘Wild’ displayed inside. Like most Wild symbols, its main function is to replace all other symbols apart from the Bonus symbol.

Just like the original Da Vinci Diamonds, this game also features Tumbling Reels where winning symbols disappear from the reels as symbols tumble from above. This is a nifty feature as it allows players to win again and again provided that they keep on forming winning combinations on the reels.

Hit 2 matching stacks of the Da Vinci, Madonna, or Mona Lisa symbols and they will proceed to transform into a Giant 2x2 Portrait symbol. If this symbol is then part of a winning payline then you will be awarded a 2X, 3X, or 4X multiplier. If you are lucky to land more than one Giant Portrait symbol then your win will be multiplied by the product of the Giant Portrait multipliers. These symbols may also be created when 4 identical Portrait symbols align on adjacent reels. Sometimes a non-winning Giant Portrait symbol may change into a different Giant Portrait to help you land a win on the reels. This is known as the Mystery Portrait feature and occurs randomly while in the main game.

The Bonus symbol is denoted by an image of the word ‘Bonus’ surrounded by an intricate gold design with purple and pink gems. Land 3 of these symbols on reels 1, 2, and 3 and you will activate the Masterworks Gallery Picker bonus game. In this feature, you will be awarded 6 Free Spins and get to choose one of the following portraits for an extra Free Spins bonus:

  • Lady on Grey – all high paying symbols pay out scatter style if you land 4 or more of them on the same Free Spin. A single 2x2 Giant Portrait symbols counts for 4 symbols.
  • Lady on Brown – more Giant Portrait symbols appear on the reels with even bigger multipliers on offer which can now reach 4X, 5X, or 6X. Multipliers can combine together to reach a high of 36X!
  • Lady on Green – more Wilds and Giant Portrait symbols appear on the reels. 2x2 Gigantic Wild symbols can appear on all Free Spins which can double your payout when part of a win. If 1 or more Gigantic Wilds appear then your win is multiplied by the combination of multipliers.
In each Free Spin feature, it is possible to get even more Free Spins by getting additional Bonus symbols on reels 1, 2, 3. Incredibly, you can retrigger this feature to grab a maximum of up to 300 Free Spins in total! At the end of the Free Spins feature, you are also given one last chance respin which awards anything from 1 to 6 extra Free Spins. This is referred to as the Second Chance Spins feature and it can only happen once every time a Free Spins feature is played through.

Theme and Graphics

Since this is a remastered version of the game, Da Vinci Diamonds has been given a fresh lick of paint to make it appear even more modern and stylish than the original. The game is played on a beautifully laid-out gold frame that’s filled with intricate designs and gorgeous patterns. Symbols are wonderfully rendered onscreen and consist of a variety of famous Da Vinci paintings including Madonna, Mona Lisa, a self-portrait, as well as an assortment of expensive looking jewels and gemstones. The animations are smooth as symbols tumble down on the reels and explode in spectacular fashion when part of a winning payline.

The music features a reworked orchestral soundtrack with lots of soft flute sounds used. It ties in perfectly with the Renaissance theme of the game.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 30 paylines, an RTP ranging between 92.55% and 96.37%, and an outstanding maximum payout worth 5,000X your initial wager.

Our Verdict on Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks

Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks is produced by IGT and we are happy to report is an excellent improvement on the classic Da Vinci Diamonds slot. It’s super easy to play, features amazing visuals, and is jam-packed with a superb and wide range of bonus features to ensure players stay in the Renaissance period for as long as possible! Tumbling Reels help you keep on winning while the Giant Portrait symbols offer nice multiplier boosts when they appear on the reels. The most lucrative feature is, of course, the Free Spins feature as you can land boosted multipliers as high as 6X or lucrative Gigantic 2x2 Wilds on the reels. We recommend players choose the Lady on Green option when you trigger the Free Spins feature as it offers medium wins and is the perfect balance between high and low variance. The only downside to this feature is that it can take quite a few spins to trigger Free Spins so patience is definitely a virtue here! In terms of variance, I found this slot to be Medium so you won’t have to wait too long to see a nice cash return on the reels when you play this game. For slots with a similar theme, check out the original Da Vinci Diamonds and Pixies of the Forest.
