Where to play
What would a gold mine be without any golden features? Let’s dig deep into Mining Fever and see what special features it has to offer us.
The Wild symbol has the ability to substitute for all other symbols on the reels to make a winning combination. The only symbol a wild can not substitute for is a Scatter.
Scatter Symbols and Free Spins
In Mining Fever you will find three different Scatter symbols which are all represented by different dwarfs - Driler, Bomber and Thundar.
If two of the same scatter symbols lands on the reels, you will be awarded either 1 or 2 bonus spins.
If one of each of the different Scatter symbols lands on the reels simultaneously, then you will be awarded 8 free spins to enjoy.
The Scatter symbols can only land during the base game.
- Driller - If the Driler Scatter is activated a dwarf will drill through the reel and you will be awarded 1 bonus spin. During which one of the following reels - 1 to 3 will be selected as a gold vein. This means a wild symbol will be placed on the complete reel.
- Bomber - The Bomber can land at random on reels 2 to 4 and will award you with 2 bonus spins. During the first bonus spin, the Bomber will act as a Wild symbol and on the second spin, the bomb will explode scattering 3-4 wild symbols over the reels.
- Thunder - Once activated the Thundar’s feature will award you with 1 bonus spin. During the spin 2 adjacent reels will be selected and covered in identical symbols.
Design and Symbols
Deep down in the minds, the reels sit in front of the tracks which run the mining carts along with the mines. To help you find your way, the mines are candlelit but do look out for the gold carts which just shot by.
The reels are set on a wooden frame which is suspended from the mining caves on some steel chains. The lower paying symbols are thick stone symbols which are denoted by J, Q, K and A, whereas the higher paying symbols are represented by different jewels and expensive accessories.
The background to the slot looks very detailed and well designed, whereas the symbols themself look more outdated and of less quality.
Overall, I am slightly fed up and tired of seeing the same themed slot games hitting our casinos. Although Rabcat did their best to give this new slot a different twist to your usual mining slots, i still didn’t find there was any reel wow factor to the game.
On the other hand, Mining Fever does have several different features to offer you, which add to the fun of the game.
Mining fever will, of course, appeal to many players who enjoy a good mining experience, however, if you are tired of the same thing and looking for something new and exciting, I would recommend giving this new slot a miss.
