Dwarf Mine Slot review
Dwarf Mine is Yggdrasil’s attempt at a high volatility slot, one which pays up to 3904x the stake, through its up to 16,907 ways to win.
Yggdrasil Gaming is a developer that is recognized as one of the rising stars of the gaming industry, in the online market at least. The quality of the slot machines which they’ve crafted so far is impressive, and they continue to put out great designs, true even for Dwarf Mine, their latest title. The theme for this particular game is a common one, related to dwarfs which are mining for gold, and the symbols shown on the reels reflect that story. Some of those will be showing card suits which appear to be made out of wood, while the more relevant ones get a pickaxe, a lamp, shovels and miners helmets. The so-called Super High Paying symbols give you four gemstones, colored in red, blue, yellow and green.
The basic game area will have 5×4 reels with 1024 ways to win, but there will be the possibility to reach a maximum of 16,907 ways to win. With its potential to pay 3904x the stake for one spin, Dwarf Mine is a high volatility game. It also comes with expanding reels, stacked symbols, free spins and collectible crystals.
To get the bigger game area, of 5×7 reels, you need three bonus symbols, so that you can trigger 10 free spins. These three bonus symbols can appear on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reels.
Another feature is called Collection Free Spins, has 5 rounds to give you, and it requires the collection of 5 crystals of the same color in order to get them, while in the paid spins. You can’t get more than one such crystal from each spin. These special free spins also have a bigger game area, and they can get Super High Paying symbols of that color on the reels.
The reels can expand in one more way, by landing a bonus symbol on a reel. There is one extra row added at the bottom, only for that spin. At most, you can get three additional rows, from the three bonus symbols which can appear in a single round.
Dwarf Mine is not your typical slot machine, and I’m especially referring to its unusual features here, not its theme, or even its graphics (though they’re quite pretty).
