Davinci Diamonds is a keno variant. I first noticed it in 2011 at both VideoPoker.com and Resorts World in Las Vegas. In addition to the usual spot keno rules, the game places there 2x2 paintings on the field of numbers. The player can win multipliers and a bonus round if enough tiles of a painting are covered. In the bonus round, the player gets free spins in which catching numbers on the paintings wins extra balls.

For all the rules and analysis of two known pay tables, please see my new page on Da Vinci Diamonds Keno.

The question for the poll is would you play Da Vinci Diamonds if in a keno mood and the return was the same as regular spot keno?

This one looks like a lot of fun. Not as fun as cows battling aliens perhaps, but still, fun.

Call me maybe to insert a c-note if I see it (just for manure and giggles) and nevermind the high HE.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Awesome analysis! I wouldn't play it, myself. I prefer Video Keno games that only have one gimmick.

Wiz,

I noticed a few typos:

"the game places there 2x2 paintings..." Change "there" to "three"

"In a regular game, it is easy to see the number number of painting tiles his is 20 × (12/80) = 3." Change "number number" to "average number" and change "his" to "hit"

"The following shows the probability of each possible number of painting entirely covered..." Add an "s" to "painting"

Hope this helps!

P.S. I think you meant 2021.
