Da Vinci’s Treasure slot review (Pragmatic Play)

The main character in this slot is a brave and tough young fellow named John Hunter. Our hero might as well have been called Indiana Jones because that’s how he looks like. We suspect that the rights for that brand name and image were just a little too expensive for Pragmatic Play. Anyway, this John Hunter character has all kinds of adventures as he searches for the treasures of Leonardo Da Vinci. You know. That Italian painter/inventor/sculptor/visionary.

If there were an award for the longest slots name ever, this Pragmatic Play video slot would definitely win it

Get ready for the full name of the slot! It is: “John Hunter and the Secrets of Da Vinci’s Treasure.” If you don’t mind, we’ll shorten it to “Da Vinci’s Treasure.”

It’s just a little easier to read.

Pragmatic Play seems to have completely discovered the high variance slots. After Peking Luck, where you could win an almost surreal 180,000 x your total bet, this Da Vinci’s Treasure follows with a blistering 48,000 x your total bet.

Who invented the helicopter, painted the Mona Lisa in passing and also designed the first submarine ever.

That Leonardo da Vinci.


Win up to $€ 2.4 million!

The maximum top prize in this adventurer’s slot is an almost as impressive 48,000 x your total bet.

To put that number in perspective: with the minimum bet of $€0.25, that amounts to $€12,000.

If you play with the maximum bet of $€50, it is possible to grab a whopping $€2,400,000.

A top prize of $€2.4 million on a non-progressive video slot is bizarrely high for a non-progressive video slot.

How does the Da Vinci’s Treasure video slot work?

This slot has 25 fixed paylines and is played on 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols. You can bet from $€0.25 to a maximum of $€50 per spin.

The variance is very high, and the theoretical RTP (the payout percentage) is an excellent 96.53%.


Symbols and payouts

The highest paying symbol is the John Hunter symbol. It’s stacked and pays out 32 x the bet if you have 5 of those on an active payline.

A full screen with John Hunters gives you 25 (paylines) multiplied by 32 = 800 x the total bet.

The medium symbols (various inventions and manuscripts) pay between 12 x and 20 x the total bet for each 5-of-a-kind.

The card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A are worth between 4 x and 6 x the total bet.

The Leonardo Da Vinci symbol is wild and replaces all symbols except the scatters. It only appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.

Three different bonus features

By spinning three scatters, you win one of the three bonus features in the game.


Prize Picker Bonus

This bonus is the least fun bonus feature of this slot. You get a cash prize when you pick one of the three works of art.

Map Quest

This bonus is already much more fun. John Hunter stands on a path that leads to a temple.

Turn the wheel to determine how many steps (1 to 5) he may take. The further our hero gets, the more you win. If the wheel lands on “Game over,” the game is over.

Progressive Multiplier Free Spins

This is the bonus “where the magic happens.”

You start with 12 free spins, starting with a 1 x multiplier. After each free spin, the multiplier is increased by +1, up to a maximum of 60 x. You can also retrigger up to a maximum of 60 free spins in total.

If on the 60th turn a full screen with John Hunters shows up, you’ll win the maximum prize of 800 x 60 = 48,000 x your bet!


Our verdict on the Da Vinci’s Treasure video slot

With the Da Vinci’s Treasure video slot, Pragmatic Play has once again delivered an outstanding online slot.

Graphically it looks great, and the free spins feature is incredibly exciting thanks to the increasing multiplier. It reminds us of the old Las Vegas casino classic Cleopatra II, a slot with extreme variance and enormous potential.

The explorer/Da Vince theme has been worked out to perfection, and the theoretical payout percentage is also very good at 96.53%.
