Da Vinci’s Vault is a video slot created by Playtech, which takes you into the brilliant inventor’s hidden lair! For many people, Leonardo Da Vinci is a name associated with painting and sculptures. But his work has carried out into many fields! Now, you have the chance to break into his hidden vault, and learn his many secrets. To do so, you’ll have to beat the unlimited free spins and the Hi-Roller bonus!
The graphics and audio combine to create a quite interesting theme! You can see and hear the large cogs that power the entirety of this release. We also like the offered special features. There’s nothing that makes a player’s day like the promise of unlimited free spins. There’s also a Hi-Roller bonus that has a chance of activating three different wheels. Each wheel comes with its own sets of rewards, so cross your fingers and hope for gold.
Play Da Vinci’s Vault
Symbol design is one of the better sides of this slot. It’s a collection of his greatest works – all hidden away from the world. You’ll recognise many of these just by view – hidden behind rows and rows of playing card royals. The letter and number icons look like they’ve been painted on, which fits the theme quite nicely. Da Vinci’s Vault only has one visual flaw: the somewhat outdated user interface!
How to Play
The game is played on a 5x3 board with 20 fixed paylines. The layout is your typical desktop user interface. Colourful and blocky, with obvious inspiration from physical machines.
The Spin button is on the rightmost side of the screen, with a dull-yellow colour. If you ask us, the Playtech’s release should have used a brighter colour here. But then the Hi-Roller button wouldn’t be as visible, and you wouldn’t be as tempted. During ordinary gameplay, gamblers can wager between $0.20 and $100 on each spin. During Hi-Roller mode, you can stake between $2 and $1,000 per spin.
To win, collect three or more identical symbols in consecutive positions, starting with the leftmost reel. All wins must follow one of twenty active paylines or the cash prize won’t be granted. Scatters are exempt from this rule, and can pay from any position.
Strategy & Tips
Land three Scatter symbols on the first, third and fifth reel to win unlimited free spins! In theory, that is. As the reels keep spinning, Da Vinci’s Vault will toss out skull icons on the centre reel. This symbol turns Wild, so it increases your odds of winning! However, each time a skull appears, the extra turns come one step closer to the end. When the skull lands three times, the special feature ends.
The Hi-Roller mode is exclusive for players who play that mode. During those five spins, gamblers are trying to collect bronze, silver and gold medals. The first collection you complete is the bonus wheel you get to spin. Depending on the wheel you unlock, you can win cash prizes, free spins or access to the inner gold wheel. The inner wheel gives players bigger cash prizes or more free spins compared to the outer wheel.
There’s a very obvious contrast between the layouts of the desktop and mobile versions of this slot.
Fortunately, everything else is identical! You can pick your favourite device without having to worry.
