Da Vinci's Treasure - or to give it its full title, John Hunter and the Secrets of Da Vinci’s Treasure - is an adventure-themed online slot from the developers at Pragmatic Play. Originally called TopGame and launched in 2007, the game maker rebranded itself in 2015 and has its headquarters in Malta. In its short history, it has established itself as one of the industry’s top gaming providers, winning a host of awards. Today, Pragmatic Plays games are available at all major online casinos, with the gaming house continuing to enjoy real growth within the gaming industry.
Introduction to the game
Leonardo Da Vinci was famous not only for his paintings but also for his inventions, many of which were way ahead of their time. Although he was certainly popular and definitely innovative, he was also a mysterious character who people considered to have hidden secrets; in fact, myth says that he had hidden treasure and he was the only person who knew where it was.
Da Vinci was born on 15 April 1452 and was known as an inventor, drawer, painter - in fact, he is known as one of the greatest painters of all time - and sculptor. He was also interested in architecture, science, music, maths, and a whole host of other subjects.
Enter the game’s hero. Akin to Indiana Jones - a rugged square-jawed character - John Hunter’s aim it is to unlock the secrets of the Renaissance master, and he gets into a whole lot of trouble as he moves towards uncovering ancient artefacts. The background is a maroon colour, giving the feel and look of something plush - an effect that is emphasised even more with the gold frame around the treasure map. These rich tones give a real sense of Da Vinci’s work and certainly set the tone and spirit of this game.
There is also a galloping horse and a real sense that the game should actually be a movie! The creative team at Pragmatic Play has gone above and beyond to create a game full of suspense with an intricate design. It also incorporates an orchestra playing classical music, which moves to a crescendo once the reels get spinning.
Let play commence
Play Free Pragmatic Play Slots right here at Slots Temple NZ. This game comprises five reels, three rows and 25 paylines, which is a typical Pragmatic Play set-up. Bets range from $0.25 to an impressive $125, with an RTP of more than 96 per cent. That said, as with other providers, Pragmatic Play allows casinos to choose their own return to player deliverables. It is worth looking into this before play commences, as the RTP can reach as low as 90 per cent; however, what differentiates this gaming provider is that it is completely transparent about this fact.
Importantly, coin values are simple and straightforward, which makes gaming easy for players. In essence, there are low-value symbols, five premium symbols in the form of crossbows, and other symbols including the main character John Hunter - the hero in search for treasure - and knapsacks and books. John is the most important symbol, worth a whopping 32x multiplier across a five payline. The wild symbol, which only appears on reels two, three, four and five, is an image of Leonardo Da Vinci, hence the name of the game.
If you like this game, you are likely to enjoy other risky explorer-type games with high volatility or other Da Vinci games, such as Da Vinci Diamonds Slot. There is a whole host to choose from, so get researching now.
Da Vinci's Treasure has a total of three bonus features, although two of these have somewhat limited value and are really just there to offer a bit of spice to the game. Along with the free spins, the features are activated when the player gets three bonus symbols on the middle reels, which results in one of the following:
- Map feature - if you land on the treasure map, which comprises 23 squares, you can spin the wheel and win prizes by moving along it. If you reach the end goal, a 100x win is yours.
- Prize picker - you will win cash prizes if you choose a painting, with three in total.
- Progressive multiplier free spins - if you land this feature, you are in for a treat. Successful players will be awarded 12 free spins, with each spin offering a 1x multiplier. If you re-trigger the bonus, you could be up for a further 60 free spins, meaning a potential 60x multiplier and a maximum win of 48,000x the stake. What’s not to like?
Da Vinci’s Treasure is available to play on mobile and tablet devices in addition to laptops and desktops. There are no downloads, which ticks a box for many gamers, and they won’t lose any quality, which is another prerequisite for any die-hard gamer.
If you like playing hands-free, you can initiate the game’s autoplay feature. This spins the reels 100 times automatically; however, before you decide to use this feature, you will need to set a loss limit to ensure you don’t lose too many coins while in this mode. You can also use the quick spin option if you want a faster gaming experience and speedier results.
Da Vinci's Treasure offers a lot of gaming variety for all levels of player and an entertaining free spins scenario, offering winnings of a massive 9,600 times the stake if you hit gold, which is a full-screen of John Hunter symbols. Both the graphics and sounds are nothing short of excellent; in fact, they are nothing short of sumptuous in our view. The play is very smooth and perfectly playable, well-rounded and excitingly vibrant. We thoroughly recommend you give it a spin if you like edge-of-your-seat gaming and retro styling. It will certainly get your adrenaline pumping as you get into the character of a fearless explorer!
