Whats not so hot?
Dwarf Mine powered by Yggdrasil casinos starts off on a 5×4 reel set with 1,024 ways to win, it’s a medium variance video slot with an ‘Expanding Reels’ feature that shoots up to a mammoth 16,807 ways to win. If you’re into dwarfs and stuff get your pick axe, helmet and lantern, it’s time to go digging treasure deep within the bowels of the earth. The game offers players a max jackpot (Non-progressive) of 3,900x your stake on one spin. The visual fidelity sports cartoon-like symbols with a touch of humour.
You can spin the reels from £0.10 to £125 per spin playable at our top mobile casinos. Dwarf Mine has two free spins features; the first one is a conventional free spins that offers 10 free spins triggered by 3 bonus symbols and the other is the Collectable Free Spins that gives you 5 free falls with Super High value symbols – more on them in a bit.
Symbols on the reels include lanterns, low value cards (diamond, spades, hearts, clubs), helmets, axes, shovels and 4 different coloured gems (high value). Payouts ensue when 3 or more identical symbols appear. However, a multiplier win is awarded when you land more than one symbol on the first reel. Of the 4 gemstones the red gem is the most lucrative, 5 of them on the reels at the maximum bet pays 4x your bet.
Unfortunately there is no wild, Yggdrasil veered away from your conventional slots play with this release. It added a bonus symbol that’s responsible for triggering the Free Spins and in the main game the reels are expanded by it. For every bonus symbol that pitches on reels 1, 3 and 5 the reels expand by a row. If you’re wondering when the 16,807 ways to win kicks in it’s when the reels increase to a maximum of 3 rows also known as the Expanding Reels feature.
The conventional free spins feature is triggered by 3 bonus symbols offering 10 free spins on a fully expanded 5×7 reel set which expands into 16,807 win ways.
Collectable Free Spins
As the name implies the ‘Collectable Free Spins’ is initiated when expanding rows of blue, green, red and yellow gems appear any position on the reels in the base game – 5 free spins are awarded. This bonus mode ups the ante somewhat in other words it’s slightly steeper than the conventional free spins but the wins are bigger. Unfortunately the high-value collectable gems don’t appear stacked therefore the prospect of hitting a full screen of the same symbol is zero.
Dwarf Mine is a fascinating slots with two impressive free spins features, for added effect Yggdrasil throws in a multiplier providing more than one symbol pitches on a reel.
The multiplier shines during the Collection Free Spins thanks to the super high value symbols. Now the not so nice. It has no wilds, no stacked symbols and the main symbols lack oomph. As such it takes the edge of the 16,807 ways to win. The volatility is quite high but so are the payouts, on each free spin you can win as much as 3,904x your stake.
Another slots with a similar theme is Dwarf’s Gone Wild by Quickspin. It has a lot of bite, a decent free spins with 5x multiplier wins, a Golden Meter for the bigger wins, RTP of 96.38% and a top win of 2,500x your stake.
