Mining Fever Theme/Symbols

The visuals in Mining Fever are very nicely done. A mineshaft full of lamps, buckets and a railroad form the backdrop to the reels. There you’ll find A to J royals alongside 4 higher paying precious metal and jewellery symbols. The gold crown is the best of these, paying 5, 12.5 or 25 times your total stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on adjoining reels, starting from reel 1. There’s also a wild that replaces all the standard symbols. This too pays 25 times your total stake if you land 5 on a payline.

3 Dwarf Scatters

Joining the regular symbols and the wild are 3 dwarves – Driler, Bombur and Thundar. Each of them is a scatter. They all have their own associated mini feature too. Land 2 of the same dwarf scatter to trigger their feature.

  • Driler’s Dwarven Drill feature - trigger this mini feature and you’ll receive 1 free spin with reel 1, 2 or 3 turning into a stacked wild.
  • Bombur’s Dwarven Bomb feature - 2 free spins are awarded here. On the first, a wild bomb is added somewhere on reels 2, 3 or 4. On the second, the bomb explodes, adding 3 or 4 extra wilds to random positions on the reels. A payout calculation is made with the extra wilds in place.
  • Thundar’s Dwarven Hammer feature - here you’ll receive 1 free spin with 2 adjacent reels (reels 1 and 2 or reels 2 and 3) filled with the same randomly chosen symbol.

Dwarven Gold Train feature

Land any combination of 3 scatters on the same spin and you’ll trigger the Dwarven Gold Train feature and with it 8 free spins. Joining the action here is the Dwarven Gold Train. This is a wild that starts on reel 1 then moves up, down or across, 1 reel to the right on each free spin that follows. This creates a wild trail that is 3 symbols long. After disappearing from reel 5, it returns again on reel 1.

Mining Fever thoughts

We rather liked the Mining Fever slot. The visuals are excellent, backed by a jaunty, brass heavy soundtrack. There’s some decent variety from the gameplay too thanks to the 3 Dwarven bonuses. The free spins round is solid too thanks to the wild trail.

Where you might be a little disappointed is if you’re after high variance action. This certainly isn’t. In fact, the variance is low with max wins of 500 x your stake on each spin or free spin. If you don’t mind that, then there’s plenty of simple pleasure on offer from Mining Fever. If it’s mining you’re after, you cannot go wrong with Play ‘N Go’s Wild Falls or Big Time Gaming’s Bonanza Megaways (which both offer much bigger potential wins).
