Dwarven Gems Megaways slot by Iron Dog Studio, the makers of the excellent Blood Queen slot, is a decent addition to their Megaways range. They have made some innovative versions like Pirate Kingdom Megaways with its locking 7-row reels in the bonus game and its clone, Christmas Megaways if you like that sort of theme. Here it's those manic miner characters in their subterranean tunnels searching for valuable gems that's the subject, with excellent graphics and music to accompany your play. So can we hit a giant win here or will our bankroll be shrunk like these little diggers?
On the reels...
Single and stacked symbols fill our reels here on Dwarven Gems Megaways slot with 2-7 rows on all 6 reels plus a top scroll of 4 tiles meaning 324-200704 ways to win. You have 4 miners with the top paying 6-of-a-kind being the Boss Miner at 5x down to 2.5x, the two lamps 1.2x and finally 5 card values of 0.6 down to 0.4x per full way. Gem scatters appear on reels 2-5 with single Wilds on reels 2-6. You do get replacement symbols after winning tumbles and our base game modifier is the Dwarven Bomb on the scrolling reel as it's a sticky Wild until it no longer forms part of a win whereupon it explodes itself and 7 other random symbols for replacements.
You have an increasing multiplier for each winning tumble here and 4 scatters will get you a selector which awards 6-11 spins. You now have a Power Gem Wild added to the scrolling row which is just as well as normal Wilds are now off the main reels. When this lands you will get 2-4 Wilds added to reels 2,3,4 plus 2 extra spins. If two, the maximum, land you get 4 extra spins and 4-8 Wilds added to reels 2,3,4,5. You still get your Dwarven Bomb. You have a maximum pay of 30,000x bet in this round too, but you'd do well to hit a tenth of it. You also get another spin if you win on your final free game, which can repeat again and so-on.
Feature Buys are available in some jurisdictions. These are 200x bet for the random 6-11 spin standard bonus but there is second option: 45x bet for 7 spins, 150x 9 spins, 300x 11 spins, 400x 15 spins and 500x 20 spins. The latter two are enhanced via more frequently occurring Dwarven Bombs and Power Gem Wilds.
Dwarven Gems Megaways slot has a 96.70% RTP which is very good, reducing slightly to 96.50% for bonus buys if available in your particular region. The overall look is good, as are the graphics, sounds and animations. The base game isn't great for decent sized top-up wins due to low symbol pays and you are heavily reliant upon the feature. This is very volatile and often pays small amounts, even if you get 11 spins on the standard trigger. You are totally beholden to the Power Gems and Dwarven Bombs landing frequently for extra spins and Wilds if you want to get that multiplier up high and actually win a big amount. These gems could dwarf your bankroll very quickly indeed...
