Where to play?
Mining Fever is another cracking release from Microgaming/Rabcat. It’s not entirely in the same league as Treasure Heroes, yet it has some endearing qualities. From what we’ve seen to date, Rabcat is carving out its own niche with its unusually looking real money slots. The game benefits from a Free Spins and Bonus Spins features.
In this installment you join forces with 3 dwarfs mining for gold in the nether parts of the earth. In typical Rabcat fashion the developer slingshots you into a fantasy realm with photo-realistic visuals. Mining Fever is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win and 3 row, low variance free slots that pays a top cash prize (non-progressive jackpot) of 500x (£$20,000) your stake. Gamblers can play Mining Fever at our Best UK online casinos from £$0.20 to £$40 per spin.
A mining shaft serves as backdrop for the reel set. The symbols on them have that punk steam look. You’ll see a ring, scatters, the three dwarfs (Driler, Bombur and Thundar), hammer tokens, wild, chest, gold ore, cards from Jack to Ace and crown. The latter symbol is the most valuable – 5 of them any position across the reels pays 25x your stake. Mining Fever’s RTP, or average return to player percentage is 96.13%. Plenty of winning spins occur with relatively low pays. However, the odd big win of 20x your stake occurs now and again.
Mining Fever sports 3 scatters that triggers different base game modifiers. They are represented by Driler, Bombur and Thundar, each with their own respective skill set. You can trigger the feature when two or more of the same symbols appear which awards bonus spins. Herewith the 3 Modifiers:
Driler’s Dwarven Drill: Awards 1 Bonus Spin. Driler drills through one of the three reels juicing it up with wilds.
Bombur’s Dwarven Bomb: Awards 2 Bonus Spins. A bomb appears randomly on reels 2, 3, or 4. On your first spin Bonus Spin, the Bomb serves as the Wild. On the second Bonus Spin when the bomb explodes it adds an extra 2-4 wilds.
Thundar’s Dwarven Hammer: Thundar awards 1 Bonus Spin. In return he hits reels 1 and 2, or reels 2 and 3 stacked with the same symbols.
When the 3 Dwarven scatters appear they trigger the Free Spins, plus they offer 8 Free Spins. The Free Spins is spiced up with a Dwarfen Gold Train Feature. Basically it’s an extra set of wilds that move randomly across the reels for the big wins. When the train no longer moves across the reel set the feature ends.
Treasure Heroes placed Rabcat on the map. Usually when a software giant like Microgaming joins a lessor known slots developer we tend to roll our eyes. Luckily this is no longer the case because Rabcat earned our respect. Rabcat further cements is authority with Mining Fever. It’s brimming with in-game features despite the fact that it only offers a jackpot of 500x your stake. Suffice to say, Mining Fever is almost the perfect casino game for gamblers with an eye on their bankroll. Regrettably, it’s not without its faults. Monotony sets in after long sessions and a few multipliers in the free spins would have been great.
Mining Fever Rabcat Slots FAQs
If I’m a high roller can I play the game?
A player with any bankroll can play it. We don’t think your average high roller will go for it because Mining Fever’s jackpot is only £$20,000.
