The Da Vinci’s Device Slot Review
There are so many stories about the famous inventor Leonardo Da Vinci and he is considered to be one of the greatest minds of his time. That is probably why the good people of 1×2 Gaming decided to dedicate one of their newest releases to him. The Da Vinci’s Device is a five-reel video slot that benefits from 243 ways to win. Form the Cryptex using the Scatter parts to trigger up to 16 free spins with multiplier Wilds, which can go all the way up to 4x. Playable from £0.25 per spin, the 2019 release boasts crisp visuals and a fitting soundtrack.
Everything about the 1×2 Gaming title is closely connected with the famous inventor. You will see plenty of his drawings that hide beneath the low-paying playing cards. You should know that Leonardo Da Vinci tried to create the first Plane, and a primitive Helicopter. We all recognize one of his greatest masterpieces, the lovely Mona Lisa, but there is also Da Vinci’s Portrait. As for the Globe, it is the highest-paying regular symbol. The Vitruvian Man is the Wild that substitutes for all regular symbols and comes with multipliers in the Free Spins feature. Different parts of Cryptex land on reels as Scatters.
There are so many of Da Vinci’s inventions that still cannot be understood by many people. Fortunately for all of us, the rules of the 2019 release are not that complicated. The 1×2 Gaming title features a standard 5×3 reel grid and offers 243 ways to win. This means that there are no paylines, you just need to land matching symbols on successive reels, starting from the leftmost reel. Three of a kind is the minimum for landing payouts. Betting is fixed at 25 coins per spin, but the coin value can be altered, so punters can bet as low as £0.25 and as high as £100 per single spin.
To trigger the Free Spins feature, you will have to land at least three Scatters on the reels. If you are lucky enough and land all five parts of the Cryptex, you will get the maximum number of freebies, which is 16. So, players can expect 8, 12 or 16 free spins, depending on the number of Scatters landed. Also, the Vitruvian Man Wild comes with a multiplier during the feature. Multipliers can be 2x, 3x or 4x, again, depending on the number of Scatters that triggered the feature. The multiplier will only be applied if the Wild is a part of the winning combination. Note that only one Wild can be landed during one free spin.
When it comes to payouts, the biggest win gamers can expect in a single spin is 1,600 times the bet, which is not bad. Our guess is that you will have to trigger the Free Spins feature and get the biggest multiplier Wild to land such a win. The Globe is the symbol that pays the most, offering 400 coins for five of a kind. Da Vinci’s Portrait will get you 300 coins for the maximum combination. The Da Vinci’s Device’s RTP is 96%.
The Da Vinci’s Device on Mobile
The good people of 1×2 Gaming had in mind that Da Vinci was one of the greatest inventors of his time when they developed the 2019 release and they made sure that The Da Vinci’s Device is as contemporary as the man that is portrayed in the video slot. The 1×2 Gaming product is playable across all devices and the quality of the game is completely the same on any device.
+ Interesting theme
+ Free Spins with up to 4x multiplier Wilds
+ Playable across all devices
– Not enough action
– No multipliers
When we saw the theme of the 2019 release, we hoped that the 1×2 Gaming will be almost as intriguing as the famous inventor ant painter, but, obviously, we were far from right. Don’t get us wrong, The Da Vinci’s Device is a good video slot, but it simply lacks action and excitement, something you should expect from Leonardo Da Vinci. The Free Spins feature is the central attraction of the 2019 release, but it is not that easy to complete the Cryptex in order to get all 16 free spins and 4x multiplier Wilds. To be completely honest, we did expect more.
