Da Vinci’s Mystery is a 5 reel slot that is 3 symbols high. The game uses paylines, with 9 in total. However, the symbol combinations do not need to fall across adjacent reels and instead only need to fall on those paylines.
Da Vinci Spins – If you land 3 “Da Vinci Spins” symbols on the reels then you will trigger 10 Free Spins and every Da Vinci symbol on top of those 3 will give you an additional 10 spins.
Da Vinci Spins – During the feature there are cascading symbols, meaning that every time you land a winning combination the symbols involved will disappear and new symbols will drop down in their place. The are also a series of symbol multipliers in place during the Free Spins. Each symbol will come with its own multiplier and every time you land a winning combination with that symbol its multiplier will increase. Additional Free Spins can be won during the feature.
Da Vinci’s Mystery promised a lot. It is a theme I haven’t ever seen before and honestly felt that it held a lot of potential. However, despite all of this it turns out that Da Vinci’s Mystery is actually a fairly straight forward slot. It doesn’t come with Wilds but I do like that symbols can combine across paylines without having to run across adjacent reels. I like that there are Free Spins that come with cascade, I like that there are multipliers but I don’t like that they are symbol specific multipliers. What I really don’t like is the house edge, which needed to be good if this slot was going to earn a positive score from us.
