Join a quartet of tipsy dwarves on a quest for hidden treasure in the fantasy-themed Dwarven Gold slot from Pragmatic Play. It’s a 5 reel, 25 payline game that comes with a bonus feature that awards between 8 and 33 free spins with all payouts boosted by multipliers of between 2x and 6x. Play from between 25p and £125 per spin.

The design in Dwarven Gold is really rather lovely – a toadstool-filled forest forms the backdrop to the reels which include a range of lower value playing cards that have been given a flowery flourish. The flora is joined by a quartet of tipsy looking dwarves who go by the unlikely names of Nibbles, Gibbles, Fillydook and Fenthwick.

The most rewarding of the standard symbols is the wooden treasure chest – land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of these on a payline and you’ll pocket 5, 20, 75 or 500 coins. The black cat is the game’s wild – it won’t give you any pays on its own but it will substitute for all other symbols with the exception of the butterfly which is the scatter.

Land 3, 4 or 5 scatters anywhere on the reels on the same spin and you’ll win 5, 20 or 100 times your stake as well as triggering the Free Spins feature – here you’ll be awarded an initial 8 free spins with all payouts doubled. You can add to that tally though.

Before the free spins play out, pick from the butterflies, ladybirds and other assorted bugs which will add extra free spins and multiplier prizes to you total. There is a maximum of 33 free spins on offer while the multipliers can reach an impressive 6x!

The stars of Dwarven Gold may be pint size but there are big rewards on offer here in the Free Spins feature. It’s certainly not the easiest to trigger and you’ll likely endure lengthy spells when your bankroll will largely head south. The feature can be worth the wait though if you manage to get a large haul of free spins in conjunction with the maximum 6x multiplier.

That potentially lucrative feature combined with some quality sound and visuals makes Dwarven Gold an entertaining and very playable package. The theme won’t be to everyone’s taste but if you enjoy the fantasy genre, you should also try the sequel, Dwarven Gold Deluxe.
