    The story of Snow White and the seven dwarves has been told over and over in several different formats. Dwarven Gold follows a similar fantasy theme about a group of dwarves, but it doesn't really focus so much on the Snow White aspect of the situation as it does the dwarves themselves. Loosely based on the same type of people from this popular fairytale, you'll find that there are lots of ways to win in this game, and you could end up finding your own gold in the process. Along these lines, the graphics and gameplay are both solid enough to be very entertaining for this online slot, and we think it will appeal to a lot of different players.

    Format and Layout

    It's really easy to get used to the format for this slot because Pragmatic Play has used one of the most popular layouts in the genre. This game has five reels, three rows and 25 paylines, and this format is a favorite of players because it gives you a lot of ways to win on every spin, but it doesn't give you so many that it's hard to keep up with what the available paylines are as the reels come to a stop.

    Betting in this game is pretty simple as well. You choose coin sizes that run from $0.01 to $0.50 apiece, and you choose between one and ten coins per payline. You can't play with fewer than 25 paylines at a time, so the minimum bet size for each spin in Dwarven Gold is $0.25, which is well within any player's budget.

    Top Regular Payouts

    The black cat is a wild symbol in this game, but it does not get its own payouts. Instead, the top non-scatter win in the game is for 500x for five of the treasure chest symbol. You can also get a win for just two of this symbol, which is the only regular symbol where this is the case. Five of the purple dwarf pays 250x, and you'll pick up a solid 200x for five of the red dwarf. The blue and yellow dwarves both pay 125x in this online slot as well, which are reasonable wins.

    Low-End Pays

    The A, K, Q, J and 10 symbols are stylized in a way that makes them appear to be covered in vines for this game, and that makes them blend in and work with the overall theme perfectly. These symbols definitely weren't just thrown into this game with no forethought, as we often see with the usage of these symbols from other games. The red A and blue K symbols pay 100x for five of a kind each. Likewise, you'll win 75x for five of the yellow Q, green J or purple 10 symbols. Since these low-end payouts come in two sets like this, it makes it pretty easy to remember what the wins are for them.

    Scatters and Free Spins

    The scatter symbol is the glowing, blue butterfly in this game, and it's probably the most important symbol in the game because it holds the most value. First off, five of a kind gives you a win worth 100 times your total bet, which is like a 2,500x line bet win, making it the largest single payout in the game. Four earns 20x your total bet, like a 1,000x line bet, making it the second-largest win available. Three of a kind is good for 5x your bet, and just two of a kind still earns a win worth twice your bet size.

    Picking up three or more of these symbols anywhere on the reel gives you a set of free spins. Your number of free turns is somewhat random, but you can earn up to 33 of them at once. On top of that, you'll get a multiplier as high as 6x, which means that your payouts are going to be even larger in this feature.

    Our Thoughts

    Pragmatic Play's approach with Dwarven Gold is fairly interesting in that the vast majority of gameplay is based on giving players a low-variance experience with few big swings in either direction. However, they also include the value-packed scatter symbol, which is responsible for the two largest regular payouts in the game on top of a massive amount of value with up to 33 free spins with a multiplier as high as 6x. This combines two popular play styles, the low-volatility style and the jackpot-hunter style, meaning that this game should appeal to a really wide range of players overall.
