This Leander slot is about 7 dwarfs who spend all their day working in the mines with their pick axes and shovels, which also features a beautiful fair skinned character and an evil looking queen. One of the feature rounds is also called ‘Mirror Mirror’. I don’t know why, but all this is beginning to sound slightly familiar. Oh yes, there’s also a character called Snow White – ah that was it!
This slot is set against the background of a forest, with mushrooms and flowers poking out of the grass while inquisitive birds look on. The reels feature all of the seven dwarves and each has his own animation when forming part of a win line – for example one sneezes, another falls asleep and another one is very happy (I wonder what their names are?). Graphically the slot is excellent, the animation bringing the slot to life and full of very vibrant colours – this is a game that can’t fail to make you smile. The soundtrack is also very familiar, sounding much like ‘Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It’s off to work we go’ in parts, but I’m sure that is just a coincidence.
There are a number of features, including a free spins round and an excellent ‘board game’ feature starring the dwarves. There is also a randomly triggered in-reel feature which can result in a lot of winning combinations.
This slot has 5 reels and twenty win lines which are fixed. To win at this slot you’ll need to land at least three consecutive symbols from left to right starting with the leftmost reel. By hovering the mouse over any of the symbols you’ll be able to see the win amount for the symbol (you can also consult the ‘info’ button for this information, as well as a guide to the games features).
The wild character is Snow White, which will substitute for any other symbol (apart from the scatter) to give extra wins. Landing this symbol 5 times in a row on a win line will also pay out the largest prize on the reels themselves – 2000x the coin amount. The evil queen pays 500x and the seven lucky dwarfs make up the remaining symbols, each stood next to a playing card symbol from 8 to Ace for avoidance of any doubt, although with each wearing different colours and having their own characteristics this is probably unnecessary.
The main bonus features are set in motion by landing the bonus scatter symbol (a brightly lit house) on reels 1, 3 and 5, where you’ll be randomly assigned one of the two features by the spin of a reel.
The first feature in the game, which isn’t awarded using the scatter symbol, is the ‘Mirror Mirror’ feature. This is randomly activated and the symbols on reel 2 will be repeated on reels 1, 4 and 5, leading to a potential large number of wins. Having landed the bonus feature you’ll end up playing the free games round or the board game round.
The free spins round takes place in the ‘Goodland Casino’ and you’ll start with 5 free spins. During this round, if snow white appears, the countdown will stop while the reels continue spinning. All of the symbols pay as scatter symbols in this round and you’ll choose a dwarf at the end of the round to reveal a multiplier.
The other round is the ‘Dig, Dig in our mine’ bonus round. Spin a wheel to see how far the dwarf advances along the trail in his cart - the further he goes, the higher the multiplier. Land on an ‘X’ when spinning the wheel will end the round and the multiplier will be set against the total stake for the spin.
This slot by Leander is a highly playable one. It looks great and draws you in immediately - the characters of the dwarfs give the slot a great sense of humour. If you’re a fan of slots with lots of features, you’ll be impressed with this game as the three features all offer something different. The best feature of all is the board game, which adds a real polish to the game and it will certainly be a feature that you’ll strive to enter again.
I wouldn’t say the lucky 7 dwarfs slot is the fairest of them all, but it certainly is one I would highly recommend.
