About Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks
Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks features 5 reels and 4 rows, with 30 paylines available in this slot game produced by the developers at IGT. The theme is entirely based on the classic artist and inventor Leonardo Da Vinci, particularly his paintings. Tumbling Reels are a feature here, which means that certain symbols on a winning line will be removed and replaced by new symbols, which could cause further wins. The betting for this slot is fixed at 40 coins.
Giant Portraits can provide you with multipliers or could even transform for more wins. If you happen to hit the Masterworks Gallery Picker, you can choose from 3 different Free Spins features with different benefits, such as portrait symbols paying as scatters, multipliers that can reach 6x and 2x Gigantic Wilds.

Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks Bonus Features
If 2 matching Mona Lisa, Da Vinci or Madonna symbols appear stacked in adjacent columns and on the same row, these symbols will then join together and form a 2x2 Giant Portrait symbol. If they are then featured in a winning combination, these symbols will then award either a 2x, 3x or 4x multiplier. If more than one Giant Portrait is part of a line win, it will be multiplied by the product of the multiplier.
When gaps are created below the Giant Portrait symbols after wins thanks to the Tumbling Reels feature, Wild symbols will cover the gaps offering more chances to find a win.
The Mystery Portrait feature is one that can be triggered randomly in the Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks slot. Here, during any spin a non-winning Giant Portrait symbol could transform into a different Giant Portrait symbol in order to form a win.
Masterworks Gallery Picker
The main bonus feature is the Masterworks Gallery Picker, which is triggered when 3 bonus symbols are found scattered across reels 1, 2 and 3. You can pick between 3 portrait symbols to see which feature and which portrait symbol you will be playing with. The choice is between Portrait Scatters, Boosted Multipliers and Gigantic 2x Wilds.
Portrait Scatters Bonus
If you choose Portrait Scatters, more Giant Portrait symbols may appear than in the base game. Portrait symbols will also pay as scatters when 4 or more appear on the reels at the same time. Will you choose the Portrait Scatters Bonus in Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks?
Boosted Multipliers Bonus
The clue is in the name here, but bigger multipliers could be on offer in the Boosted Multipliers Bonus. When a Giant Portrait is part of a winning combination, the multipliers can reach 4x, 5x or 6x. If there is more than one, multipliers could reach 36x.
Gigantic 2x Wilds Bonus
In Gigantic 2x Wilds, 2x2 symbols can appear on all of the Free Spins and may double your outcome when they are part of a winning line. If there is more than one Gigantic Wild, the win will be multiplied by the combination of the multipliers.
Second Chance Spins
That’s not all though, as another bonus feature in Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks is the Second Chance Spins. After the final Free Spin of any of the Free Spins features, between 1 and 6 Free Spins may be credited. This may only happen once per Free Spins bonus.
UK Casino Verdict
It seems like a great idea to remaster one of the most popular casino slots of all time in the form of the original Da Vinci Diamonds while adding some top-notch features to arguably make it even better. The Giant Portraits covering 2x2 on the reels can really make a difference to wins, while the Tumbling Reels is always a delight to see. There’s nothing quite like getting multiple wins after winning paylines are replaced by other symbols. The chance of a 36x multiplier is certainly not bad either.
