Tinderbox Treasures Slot Review

Tinderbox Treasures is a fairy tale themed slot from Playtech with 5 reels and 25 paylines. Playable from 25p a spin on all devices, look out for the Copper Wild as this triggers the Dog Wild Re-Spin feature where you get a free re-spin with a 2x Silver Wild. If you get 1 of these, you get another re-spin with a 3x Gold Wild appearing. There’s also a Free Games feature where you begin with 10 free spins but make picks to win more free spins, increase the wild multiplier from 3x to 5x and more scatters. Each scatter gives you a dog spin in the Dog Spins feature where you will benefit from 4 wild symbols in total.

Tinderbox Treasures is a 5 reel, 25 payline slot that can be played from 25p to £1,250 per spin on all devices. Based on the Danish fairy tale by Hans Christian Anderson, its about a soldier who buys a magic tinderbox who uses powerful dogs to do his bidding. In terms of bonus features, it comes with dog wild re-spins as well as free spins with stacked wild symbols and wild multipliers up to 5x. There’s also Dog Spins with collected overlaid Dog wilds in place.

Visually, Tinderbox Treasures has a mysterious feel to it – set inside the magic tinderbox which is full or riches and lots of chains and padlocks, symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards as well as various different characters. You have a masked man with an axe, an old woman, the king, the queen and the soldier himself. The latter is the most lucrative giving you 10 times your stake for 5 on a payline.

The game comes with 4 wild symbols – you have 3 Dog wilds in the base game (Copper Wild, Silver Wild and Gold Wild) as well as 1 wild in the free spins. All wilds only appear on the 3 middle reels – they can substitute for all symbols except the scatter.

Now, if a Copper Wild symbol lands on any of the reels, you will trigger the Dog Wild Re-Spin feature – you will receive a free respin with the Silver Wild appearing instead of the Copper Wild. The Silver Wild is stacked 2 symbols high and gives you a 2x multiplier.

If a Silver Wild lands fully on the reels, you will get another free respin – on this 2nd respin, Gold Wilds can appear instead of Silver Wilds on the 3 middle reels. Gold Wilds are stacked 3 symbols high and give you a 3x multiplier.

The other symbol to look out for is the Tinderbox scatter – when it appears simultaneously on the 3 middle reels, you will trigger the Free Games feature. You begin with 10 free spins but you need to click on 1 of the 3 doors to reveal nothing or a Tinderbox. You will then get stacked scatters which are 2 symbols high, 5 additional free spins or a wild multiplier which increases the multiplier up to 5x.

Once you begin the feature, look out for the wild which appears only on the 3 middle reels – any win involving a wild which subject your winnings to a 3x multiplier. The scatter only appears on reel 5 which each one giving you a Dog Spin.

Once the free spins are over, you will enter the Dog Spins feature – all 4 wild symbols can appear on the 3 middle reels which help but the Silver or Gold Wilds don’t subject a multiplier to your winnings.

Tinderbox Treasures looks fantastic and has a superb soundtrack to match – I found the Dog Wild Re-Spin feature to be quite hit and miss with smaller wins most of the time. Saying that, I did manage to get the 3 middle reels with the 3x Gold Wild fully in place which resulted in a 100 times stake win. The bigger wins will come from the Free Games feature where a 5x multiplier can result in wins of up to 1,250 times your stake on each free spin.

I found Tinderbox Treasures to be a low to medium variance offering which has a nice balance between entertainment and gameplay. Overall, a good addition to the popular fairy tale genre – if you prefer something more volatile, Playtech’s Dragon Champions is recommended.
