Dwarfs are always represented in pretty much the same way. Scrubby long beards, a penchant for heavy drinking, a lust for riches and deep dark abodes. If youre looking for a fresh take on dwarves that veers away from the one set out by J.R.R Tolkien you may be disappointed. Dwarf Mine definitely doesnt break the mould when it comes to dwarf-themed shenanigans, but if you can get past the cliche, there are many other reasons you should play.

The slot comes from Yggdrasil and embraces 5 reels, expanding paylines and a maximum win of 3,904 times your bet. So, lets chip away at the details of this mining adventure.

Theres an almost liberal use of special features which get triggered fairly often.

The graphics are beautiful and the icons across the reels are well crafted.

The expanding grid, free spins and bonus drill re-triggering make for rewarding possibilities.

The use of card suites on the reels was a little disappointing, more thematic icons would have been preferable.

The Free Spins special feature cant be re-triggered.

The game is fairly static and the crank-pulling dwarf didnt do much else, so I got tired of looking at him.

Theme and Background

With helmets, lanterns, shovels, pick axes the reels display everything you need to efficiently make a large hole in the ground. The obligatory card suits are also featured but have been remastered and made to look rough hewn in keeping with the dusty, rocky gem quarry theme. As the title suggests, this slot takes place within a mine shaft. A ginger bearded dwarf is on hand, pulling the crank with each spin and looking mildly pleased when you strike a good haul.

The soundtrack is distinctly epic. Think Lord of the Rings when the gang is running over some hill or other in unison, getting ready to charge into battle with renewed enthusiasm. It grated on me after a while, and I got tired of hearing the crank get pulled so I soon went into mute mode.

Dwarf Mine is well designed with a clean and functional layout. There are enough interesting features to hold your attention, and I spent more time than usual playing this one. How do they manage it? By setting crystal collection targets on the left side of the grid. You can read more about how these work below.


Crystals and axes can be quite mesmerizing and Dwarf Mine is littered with these. But nestled among the usual suspects is a bonus power drill which allows you to bury even deeper into the mine, revealing a new grid line. The grid expands, giving you the chance to unearth another drill so you can expand the grid further. When I played I quickly hit three bonus drills in a row which apart from being quite exciting visually, also meant a nice little pay out.

Dwarf Mine is pretty straight forward. The slot features five reels, four rows and offers 1,204 ways to win. If you land three matching symbols on successive reels, starting from the leftmost reel, and youll start scoring payouts. Scatters will help you expand the reel more frequently, and when you do each scatter will expand the reel grid by one row, up to 7 possible rows.

Free Spins

The drills can also do a lot more than just expand the grid to exciting proportions. Land drills on reels 1, 3 and 5 and youll trigger the Free Spins feature. This means 10 freebie spins where the grid is expanded to its maximum potential.

Then you can kick back and watch as the extended reels give you the chance to collect maximum coins. The feature is played on a 5×7 reel grid, which will secure you more wins.

Collection Free Spins

On the left had side of the grid are wooden buckets in which different colored Collectible Crystals collect. The target is to amass five of each type of crystal, and these are picked up as they appear on the reels with each spin.

This feature is rewarding on multiple levels because youll pick up coins with each discovery and then get awarded free spins when you complete a collection. There are five collections to be completed, awarding you 5 free spins with super high-value symbols.

A super high-value symbol that is of the same color as the triggering crystal is added to the reels and the feature is played the expanded 5×7 grid.

Payouts and Wagering

Dwarf Mine Slot - Paytable

With a maximum possible payout set at 3,904 times your bet and a RTP of 96.80%, theres definitely something considerable to shoot for. Most profitable is the red symbol, offering 100 coins for five of a kind. The blue follows with a 90 coin offering if you can hit the maximum combination. Theres also the added kicker that collecting one more matching symbol on the reels adds a multiplier to the win.

The busy work of collecting crystals and drilling into expanded reels could give the impression of it being a high volatility slot, but its actually right about the Medium level. When you hit free spins, which is actually fairly easy, youre essentially guaranteed a payout. Each time you collect a crystal youre also paid out. In short, payouts are very frequent, if not always substantial. I hit pretty big twice in the space of ten minutes.

Final Verdict

Dwarf Mine


My first forays into the world of underground mining was enjoyable, if not particularly memorable. While well designed, I thought they could have done a little more in terms of animation, it was all a little too static for my taste. Waiting to collect the crystals is what kept me playing, but even collecting these was a mission and a half.

On the flip side, the big payouts are worth waiting for. When you do manage to collect the crystals it is particularly gratifying, enough so that Id definitely recommend giving Dwarf Mine a bash or two.
