The time has come to dig deep, because all the gold you dig up – you get to keep! Dwarf Mine online slot comes from the creative minds of Yggdrasil developers and centres on the myth that dwarfs are good at mining. Represented in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) as kind-hearted hard workers, dwarfs are often pictured with hammers, pick-axes and other mining tools. They are the first to get the gold, so why not meet them and give them a helping hand as they are carrying out all those heavy golden nuggets, right? Dwarf Mine RTP is set at 96.80%, whereas the maximum payout goes as up as 3,904 times the bet which equals 97,605 coins.
One spin in, and you will be down in the deep, as deep as the dinosaur fossils and tossed glass bottles swallowed by the ground. Since dwarf miners are so smart, they seem to have invented a mighty digging apparatus, so all you need to do is hop onto it and start busting out the jewels. The game is played with 5 reels and 4 rows, at first, offering as many as 1,024 was to win.
Symbols used in the game include mining tools, lanterns and helmets, as well as different coloured gems. Landing 3 matching symbols on successive reels, starting from the leftmost reel, results in a payout. Since the slot comes with Expanding Reels mechanics, the reel grid can expand and ultimately contain 5 reels and 7 rows, which makes way for a maximum of 16,807 was to win. There are no Wilds in Dwarf Mine slot, but not to worry – there are multipliers, freebies and Scatters. The bets go from a minimum of ₹ 10 up to a maximum of ₹12,500.
Other than from the Expanding Reels feature, players can benefit from a Free Spins feature and the Collection Free Spins. While in the regular Free Spins round the bettors can win 10 freebies (once the drill Scatter symbols land on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously), to receive any additional free plays they need to accumulate Collectible Crystals.
Each collection of crystals is worth 5 free spins with super high-value symbols. In combination with multipliers, the Collection Free Spins feature can be quite lucrative. Collectible symbols appear only on the expanded rows, so collecting five of the same colour may not be as easy as we’d like. The crystals remain in play during gratis spins and pay 4 times the stake if they appear in a winning combination.
It’s not every day that you come across an online slot with 16,807 ways to win. What is more, it’s packed with free spins and gorgeous graphics, but Indian casino players will need to get used to the fact that there are no Wild symbols to help with the winning combinations. Instead, more winning symbols appearing on the reels when there is a win, add a multiplier to it, which is somewhat unusual and not seen often among Yggdrasil games, or any other slots. Dwarf Mine slot is worth breaking a sweat, for sure.
