There are 5 different free spin modes to check out in Dwarf Mine, the regular version is triggered by landing 3 of the special Scatter symbols in the base game, either in view or from mining out the extra rows, the collection free spins are instantly triggered once 5 matching gems have been collected.
Regular Free Spins
10 free spins are awarded and the reels are fully expanding with 3 extra rows and 16807 Ways, there are no re-triggers or gem collections active during the free spins hence no chance of a re-trigger.
Collection Free Spins
The collection free spins are triggered once 5 matching gem colours have been collected with just 5 free spins being awarded.
The value of these high paying gemstones is based on your average stake whilst in the collection phase, so don’t try to be smart and increase your bet when only the final gem needs collecting as Yggdrasil has obviously countered this with the average stake size.
The special gems colours are quite reasonably stacked so it is possible to score some decent wins during these bonuses, but with just 5 spins they can at the same time be very disappointing.
Dwarf Mine Slot
Dwarf Mine is visually a very polished slot release from Yggdrasil as you would expect, and the expanding mining scatter feature does work really nicely. The gem collection is a nice touch giving a great sense of anticipation that a new bonus round is just around the corner.
The main issue as a player though is a lack of any wild symbols, and even more so no random or special features that can occur to do something a bit special. The RTP is solid at 96.8% but the distinct lack of anything “special” makes the gameplay feel slightly dull after a few bonuses and collection free spins have been played out.
In our playtests, we did manage some very decent wins (over 200x stake) with the collection gem free spins but the overall fun factor is a little lost without more special features occurring.
