Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it’s off to spin we go. The classic tale of Snow White gets a reworking in 7 Lucky Dwarfs, a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot from Leander Games. It comes with a trio of features including the Mirror, Mirror bonus where symbols are reflected, a cash trail and a free spins round. Stakes range from 20p up to £100 per spin.
There are plenty of slots based on fairy stories. Do the 7 Lucky Dwarfs offer anything new? Small in stature they may be but they do offer plenty in the feature department. First up is the Mirror, Mirror feature which is triggered when mirror symbols fall on reels 1, 4 and 5. The symbol on reel 2 is reflected onto reels 1, 4 and 5 boosting your chances of finding a winning combination.
Find 2 Bonus symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 and you’ll trigger either the Goodland Casino Free Spins feature or the Dig, Dig In Our Mine Bonus feature. If you get the free spins, you’ll be awarded 5 free games. If Snow White appears, she’ll freeze the free spins countdown. After you’ve played your free spins, choose one of the Seven Dwarfs and your win will be boosted by a multiplier of between 2x and 7x.
The Dig, Dig In Our Mine Bonus feature is a cash trail – spin the wheel and progress up the path, the further you get the bigger the rewards. A multiplier of up to 500 times your stake is on offer if you make it all the way. Watch out for the dreaded X on the wheel though as this will bring the feature to a premature close. Land on a dwarf and the prizes increase.
7 Lucky Dwarfs has a light hearted feel – the visuals are cartoon style. Look out for Sneezy, Sleepy, Happy, Grumpy, Dopey, Bashful and Doc. Joining them are the evil Queen and of course Snow White who is the game’s wild, substituting for all other symbols apart from the bonus. Find 5 Snow Whites on a payline in the base game and a payout of 2,000 times your line bet will be yours.
The action plays out to a tranquil soundtrack that has just a hint of ‘Hi Ho, it’s off to work we go’ which complements the theme nicely. The variance is low to medium so expect a stream of lower value wins rather than too many spectaculars.
The fairy-tale genre is very common amongst slots developers – Leander Games has produced a very decent offering here, combining slick looks with some quality features. It all adds up to an entertaining little slot. As for the theme, you have Wizard of Oz Ruby Slippers by WMS which is superb – I would also recommend NetEnt’s Jack and the Beanstalk.
