- The lower value symbols are stone-carved J, Q, K, and A royal card symbols.
- The higher value symbols feature gold ore, hammer coins, a golden ring, a sealed chest, and a crown. The crown is your most valuable symbol, paying out up to 25x your bet for five on a line.
- There are 3 different scatters. Each represented by one of the Dwarf characters. These symbols trigger free spins as well as gifting you with additional bonuses.
- The wild symbol is a coat of arms with a crossed shovel and pickaxe. This will stand in for any other standard symbol to assist you with winning combinations. This symbol will pay you 25x your stake for five of a kind.
The 3 dwarves, Driler, Bombur, and Thundar, are each represented by their own scatter symbol. Landing 2 of the same scatter symbols will provide you with a character-unique bonus.
- Driler's bonus awards you 1 free spin and changes the symbols on one of the first 3 reels into a stacked wild.
- Bombur's unique bonus is 2 free spins and a wild bomb symbol that will appear on one of the last 3 reels on the first free spin. With the second free spin, the bomb detonates and scatters 3 or 4 extra wilds across the reels.
- Getting 2 Thundar scatters gives you 1 free spin and 2 adjacent reels will be stacked with the same symbol.
Golden Train Free Spins
If you can land any 3 scatters on the reels, the free spins mode will be activated. You will be given 8 free spins. While this feature is active, wild symbols, up to a train of 3 symbols long, move randomly across the reels, creating winning combinations as they go.
Mining Fever slot is an all-round excellent Microgaming title. The base game gameplay is varied enough to keep things exciting with the unique dwarf scatter rewards giving you numerous ways to win. The golden train feature during the free spins adds a novel element which is a refreshing departure from a lot of titles. The visuals and animation are highly captivating and deftly executed. A lot of work went into this slot and it shows. The RTP is an inoffensive 96.13% and the top win potential isn't spectacular at 500x. This might dissuade you if you're after a massive jackpot, but the slot is so well-put-together that you might not mind because the experience of playing provides an exceptional level of enjoyment.
