Leonardo's Loot Slots is a quirky little medieval themed game that has a low budget and a lot of heart. It’s a little rough around the edges, but for the most part well produced and with a high standard held across all fronts. We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with it, mostly wishing that the cartooning of the character work was a little more well done, and that we had more hours in the day to play it. If you like the time period, and money, this may be a match made in heaven for you. Skip this review and give it a spin now!
The premise of Leonardo's Loot Slots is medieval times. We’re not entirely sure the way it looks is accurate, but hey, it looks good and we like that. Loot in particular is appealing, so we’re not complaining. An accurate rendition of that period would likely be villages strewn with people dying of the plague.
Graphics in Leonardo's Loot Slots are great. Everything is crisp, clear, colorful, and compelling to look at, which makes your time spent playing all the easier because of how easy they are on the eyes.
We have some small gripes with the character work, however. The artist is clearly talented, and the colors and objects all look great. Even the suits of cards sing. But the faces lack any real expressive quality, and are a blemish on an otherwise really great looking game.
Gameplay in Leonardo's Loot Slots is standard, keeping with the time period we suspect when slots were made of wood. At 5 reels and 50 pay lines, it does not break the mold there, chosing instead to keep things classy in ways we can respect.
Betting here ranges from a penny to $10, making this an accessible slot that anyone can jump into in hopes of winning a lot of money without worrying about necessarily breaking the bank in the process. Max bets cap out at a low amount, which tends to be how we rolled when we played it a bunch for our review. It paid out well, however, during most of our plays. During others, it didn’t, but this may come down to luck, or if our sign was in season.

Who is the Game NOT For?
Although we enjoy this slot, it is not for everybody. In particular, it may not be your cup of tea if this describes you in any fashion:
* Averse to winning money online
* Looking for something truly innovative in the genre
* You find the theme in any way offputting
Is it Buggy?
In the time we spent playing this game, we did not encounter any bugs, problems, or errors. The same cannot be said for all slots of this genre, so we commend the developers for a job well done on that. We also encountered no issues in processing winnings or payments, and everything ran very smooth just like you would expect across many varied devices in a variety of ecosystems and operating systems.
Leonardo's Loot Slots is a solid entry in the genre of old knights and wizards and such, mostly focusing on the period and not the usual tropes found there. It looks great for the most part and plays pretty well, even boasting an impressive number of pay lines to keep things interesting. We can’t find much to fault here that we couldn’t say about any slot, which is a good place for this game to be in on all counts. If you like anything you’ve seen in the screenshots, or read here, you will likely enjoy the check out of this well done game. A lot of love went into it, which will spill forth into your wallet if giving enough time and attention at the reels. We really like it as you can tell, and hope you will too when you start playing it this very second.
