The design here is a little old fashioned. With an old map in the background, you’ll see A to 9 playing cards as well as a crossbow, a knapsack and a mystery book. John Hunter is the best of the standard symbols awarding 2, 8 or 32 times your total stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 in combination. Appearing on the middle 3 reels only, Da Vinci is the wild. It replaces all other symbols apart from the scatter.
Also hitting on reels 2, 3 and 4 only is the code wheel which is the scatter. Hit 3 of these on the same spin and you’ll be awarded 1 of the following 3 bonus features:
- Map Quest feature - this is a variation on the trail bonus. Spin the wheel to work your way along the map. There are 23 spaces in all with prizes increasing the further you progress. You can win up to 100 times your stake in total.
- Progressive Multiplier Free Spins feature - on offer here are 12 free spins, starting at 1x. After each free spin, the multiplier increases by 1. Land 3 scatters and another 12 free spins are added to your total. You can play with up to 60 free spins with a whopping 60x multiplier!
- Prize Picker feature - this is our old favourite the pick me round. Choose from the 3 objects to reveal a cash prize.
There’s nothing too flashy about Da Vinci’s Treasure. There’s an old school feel to the design. We’re not in the super slick Scandi design territory here. It’s all perfectly serviceable though. The features are very familiar too. You won’t find anything staggeringly original here. Again, they’re all perfectly solid.
What makes what could have been a rather run of the mill slot game potentially far more interesting is the variance which is sky high. You can win up to 48,000 times your total stake in the Progressive Multiplier Free Spins feature if you get a good result with the 60x multiplier!
If you enjoy games that combine plenty of variety with extreme volatility, then this quest for Da Vinci’s Treasure should offer plenty of entertainment. I also suggest you try Book of Dead from Play ‘N Go which looks rather similar and features an intrepid adventurer (Rich Wilde).
