In order to determine if mine shafts were safe for miners to work in back in the day, they used to bring canaries down into them. If the canary passed away, it meant that there was natural gas leaking into the shaft and that miners wouldn’t be able to continue their work. It’s a pretty morbid thought but makes perfect sense for online slot developer Nolimit City to cover.

After having discovered the perfect beer recipe, the angry dwarf descends down the mineshaft once again to search for his one true love, a beautiful mermaid that will hopefully make him less angry once he discovers her.

As per usual with this developer, the game is packed full of bonus features and extras. We’ll cover all of them so that you won’t be left in the dust of the mineshaft wondering what just happened as dynamite goes off all around you.

Descending Into The Earth Once Again

There’s nothing pretty about this title whatsoever, the background is brown and black simulating an actual mineshaft. It’s an interesting contrast, the majority of this game isn’t visually appealing but the moment a big win occurs, a story plays out depicting the angry dwarf finding his lost love in the mine, the general ugliness of this game next to the beauty of the mermaid and the story is interesting to note.

The music is industrious and serious. When the tune plays you know you’re about to get down to business which is great, it fits the theme of the title perfectly. The sound effects are also pretty good, the canary makes cute chirps which makes things so much harder, when wins happen there are appropriate sounds, and when special symbols land, you’ll know.

The overall presentation of this game is typically Nolimit City. We’ve come to expect this level of grit from the developer but through all the roughness and despair, something truly beautiful is able to shine through.

Treasures Of The Mine

There are ten common icons that belong to the pay table of this title. There are also a few special symbols which will assist the miner in his ultimate goal of being reunited with this wife.

To start, we’ll cover the low-paying images first. These are represented by playing card values and should be expected to land on the grid frequently. Brace yourself, you’ll be seeing 10, J, Q, K, and A landing on the grid often.

Next up, the high-paying images. These are all represented by mining gear that our protagonist uses to excavate the mineshaft. Be on the lookout for rope, a flask, a compass, a rat, and the miner himself. The angry dwarf is the highest paying common icon in the game.

The canary is the Scatter of this game. By landing a minimum of three of them anywhere on the visible grid, you’ll be awarded with bonus spins. Should two of these land before the reels finish spinning, the anticipation effect will kick in. There are two types of Scatters, silver and gold cage Scatters.

The xBomb Wild will substitute for any other common icon in the game, allowing new combinations to form or extend already existing ones. It will also explode and create space for new icons to fall into place.

Beer & Explosives

The initial grid that you’ll be playing on consists of a 3-3-2-2-1-1 set up. As the game progresses, more of the grid might make itself available. Depending on how much of the grid is opened up, there are between 36 – 1728 ways to win.

The theoretical payout percentage for this game is 96.02%. The volatility of the game is very high.

The bets that you’re able to place while playing this title can range from 0.20 – 100 coins per spin. The highest achievable win that can be obtained through gameplay is 65,000x the bet.

Love Finds A Way

Whenever a winning combination hits the grid, the winning symbols will be removed from play making space for new symbols to fall in. More of the grid will open up whenever a win occurs or when an explosion happens near the border.

Whenever 3, 4, or 5 of the same symbol appears in the grid but doesn’t result in a win, Wild Mining occurs. The triggering symbols will be removed and replaced with Wild Bombs. The 3, 4, or 5 symbols will result in 1, 2, or 3 bombs respectively.

By landing 3 Scatters during a single spin, you will trigger Canary Spins. During the feature, the grid becomes 4-3-4-3-4-3-4. There are four locked positions in each corner of the grid which will collect certain symbols such as coins. The triggering Scatters will remain on the grid when the feature begins. Each Scatter has three hitpoints, if dynamite or a gas canister explodes near the canary Scatter, it will remove one hitpoint. When a canary dies, it will respawn in its cage and have its multiplier reset.

During the feature, there are multiple symbols that can be used to increase multipliers, increase the number of bonus spins, and upgrade collection patterns.

The End Of The Story

While the game might seem gritty and dark, it actually has a lovely ending. If you’d like to experience this tale for yourself you can do so the next time you visit an online casino.
