The fan favourite machine is back! And this time the tumbling reels come with bigger multipliers and even bigger free spins in the Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks mobile slot.
So it’s not particularly surprising that they like to bring the old master painter back from the dead in yet another reiteration of the game, this time with mega symbols and even more free spins.
We are going to admit that we were never big fans of the original 20 payline Da Vinci Machine, although we enjoyed the Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play which had double the number of betlines.
Well, the Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks slot has 30 paylines, and sit somewhere in the middle, but with the same tumbling reels that made the original famous.
It’s a mid variance machine, and every once in a while you get 2×2 mega symbols of the high paying portrait symbols giving you 2x, 3x, or 4x multipliers on a mid-size win.
You’d think, having had a few decades to rework their craft, they would have updated the symbols a little, but this is still the same Italian renaissance slot that looks like something from the middle ages.
You can choose to play 6 free spins where you get one of 6 possible bonus game feature:
You might be able to tell that we haven’t been the most enthusiast about this casino game and that because the faults of the original are still here.
Granted, you can win more in this Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks game. But the wins in the base game are still fairly average and the free spins are hard to find and temperamental.
Personally, unless you are a fan of the original, we doubt you’ll get much out of this. You are better off trying out the Siberian Storm Dual Play to see some real IGT casino action.

Tumbling Reels Feature: This is the same feature you'll find in slots like Pixies of the Forest or the famous Gonzo's Quest game.
These are basically cascading reels where any win explodes and you get more symbols tumble down from above, giving you a chance at multiple wins in a row.
Mega Symbols: Any 4 symbols touching each other in a 2x2 formation will turn into a mega symbol with a multiplier.
The first has a 2x multiplier, the second a 3x multiplier and the third a 4x multiplier. You are generally lucky to find even one, possibly two.
These multiply each other if part of the same win.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 scatters trigger 6 free spins. You'll then pick from one of three bonus features.
After the free spin bonus round, you get the last chance re-spin that gives you anything from 1 to 6 extra free spins.
We gave this Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks slot by IGT 3 stars because there's a lot of good stuff happening here.
The tumbling reels give you mini free-spin during the base game, and the multipliers on the mega symbols can give you 36x multipliers on wins.
It's just a shame that, much like the original, this game is so sloooow and the free spins are hard to find.
Landbased slot fans will find some joy here, but anyone used to more modern fares are better off heading to the Royal Masquerade slot for a little more rivalry and fun.
