Available across all devices from 0.10 to 125 Eur a spin, it comes with Expanding Reels mechanics that expand to give you up to 16,807 win ways.

Visually, it has cartoon-style graphics and involves quite a lot of animations. It’s a charming slot with a comical touch to it – in the backdrop, you’ll see the remains of buried people and dinosaurs as well as a Leprechaun hat encased in the solid bedrock. The reels are set inside a rather primitive hydraulic digging machine that is operated by an Irish-looking dwarf. You’ll see him stand to the right of the reel set, frantically jerking the lift lever as he goes up and down to the rhythm of the expanding and retracting reels.
Symbols on the reels are dominated by card suits while the more valuable set is made out dwarven tools in the form of shovels, axes, helmets and lanterns – the latter being the most valuable giving you 1.4 times your stake for on a payline.
Yggdrasil has decided to go against the grain here and leave out the wild symbol. There’s a bonus symbol, however, which has dual functionality. Aside from triggering the free spins, it also expands the reels in the base game – when a bonus symbol appears, the reels expand by 1 row. Due to this Expanding Reels feature, the reels can increase up to a maximum of 3 rows and 16,807 ways to win.
The standard bonus is played when you land 3 bonus symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5. It’s played with 10 free spins on a fully expanded 16,807 win ways reel set. There’s an alternative bonus as well – in the base game, expanded rows can reveal green, yellow, blue and red crystals. Collect 5 of the same kind to trigger 5 Collection Free Spins.
The Collection Free Spins are played on the same reel set as the standard bonus but gives you only half the free spins. Don’t despair fellow punter! In this slightly more volatile bonus you will benefit from a set of super high-value symbols represented by the 4 different collectable crystals – 5 red crystals will give you 4 times your stake. It should be noted that none of the symbols appears fully stacked which makes it impossible to land a full screen of the same symbol.
