Has Red Tiger Gaming Created a Modern-Day Masterpiece in Da Vinci’s Mystery Slot?
Videoslots Casino has recently added Red Tiger Gamings latest renaissance themed super high variance Da Vinci’s Mystery Slot to their casino which is a regular 9 fixed pay line machine which uses a new Super Lines mechanic.
It’s worth noting that the Da Vinci’s Mystery Slot comes with a super high variance rating from Red Tiger and we definitely saw both sides of this in our extensive playtesting, the Super Lines mechanic helps to keep the wins fairly frequent in the base game by awarding wins as Scatters as long as they are on the same payline and this is highlighted clearly during play making spotting the wins very easy.
The biggest attraction to this slot, however, is free spins bonus round where things really do heat up, the Super Lines are still the key feature to the bonus round, but any wins created from matching symbols will also now raise a multiplier value for that particular symbol (highlighted above the reels) for the rest of the bonus round.
There is also a tumbling reels effect added to any wins during the bonus round allowing multiple further wins to be created and even more multipliers being added, and if that hasn’t piqued your interest yet, full bonus re-triggers are also on offer with the already gained multiplier values retained!
Needless to say this bonus round can get extremely exciting, particularly if you manage 1 or 2 full bonus re-triggers or a rare 4 scatter re-trigger, it wasn’t unusual during these kinds of bonus rounds to have multiple symbols with well in excess of 20x multipliers active on them, meaning even 3 of a kind wins then become very impressive wins!
Check out how this slot plays and its potential in the gameplay video and screenshots below!
|Da Vinci’s Mystery Slot – Technical Summary|
|Re-Trigger Bonus Round||Yes|
|Special Features||Super Lines
|RTP (Return To Player)||95.67%|
The Super Lines work just as regular payline do however all of the symbols pay as Scatters as long as they are on the same payline, so for example, 3 matching symbols anywhere on a payline will award a 3 of a kind win.
The free spins bonus round is triggered by landing 3 or more of the scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, awarding an initial 10 free spins for 3 scatters up to a maximum of 30 free spins for a 5 scatter trigger.
During the free spins, the Super Lines feature is active along with the addition of Tumbling Reels after any wins are created and Rising Multipliers added for each symbol that forms part of a win.
For example, a 3 of kind symbol win will then add a 3x Multiplier to that particular symbol for the remaining spins of the bonus round.
Da Vinci's Mystery Slot
The Da Vinci’s Mystery Slot from Red Tiger Gaming should definitely appeal to players who enjoy the more riskier high variance slots, the potential of this machine is huge if you are lucky to get a couple of feature re-triggers!
In our playtests, we saw both sides of this machine, with long dry spells with no bonus triggers, followed by back to back bonus rounds of well over 500x stake wins, generally, however, our bonus rounds were in the range of 20x up to 100x for most of the other bonus rounds.
The real key to this slot is getting feature re-triggers where additional spins help to prolong the bonus round and build up the multipliers to crazy levels, our best was well over 40x for a premium symbol!
Overall, well worth a play if you enjoy high variance slots similar to Novomatics, just be sure to bet at levels to cater for a high variance slot to give this release a fair chance and hope for re-triggers!!
