New Slot, Reign of Gnomes, Offers 243 Ways to Win
Who would have thought gnomes are so wealthy? The quirky characters in Reign of Gnomes, a new “all ways pay” slot, live in a castle that’s loaded with luxuries, so it’s in your best interest to try to gain their favor.
This 5-reel medieval fantasy slot boasts 3D animations, a wild symbol, free spins, and a unique set of free spin bonuses. The game takes place over a kingdom backdrop, and the animations look like they’re popping out of the screen. The 3D images are especially impressive in the Dragon Spins mode, where a little pterodactyl appears holding a flaming dragon’s egg. The images show just how far video slots have come since their inception.
The game’s wild symbol shows up on the second, third and fourth reels. The wild substitutes for all of the game’s symbols except the scatter, creating winning lines whenever possible. And with 243 ways to win (as opposed to 25 ways with 25-line slots), the wild can generate a wealth of payouts.
Experience a Better Free Spins Mode
Every good online slot offers a chance to gain free spins, but Reign of Gnomes takes things a step further by boosting free spins mode with a Golden Amulet Bonus. To get free spins, you need to land three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels; this triggers 5, 10, or 20 free spins. As mentioned, at the end of each free spin is an opportunity to gain an extra payout by spinning the Golden Amulet. The Amulet’s a wheel that comprises six sections, with each section displaying a unique symbol. There’s a WILD symbol, 3X, 5X, and 6X multipliers, a swirl, and a diamond. These symbols trigger the following actions:
WILD: Random symbols are transformed into wilds.
5X, 6X, 3X: Your winnings are multiplied by either five, six, or three.
Swirl: This triggers the Spin ‘Til You Win bonus, which lets you spin the reels for free until a payout is triggered.
Diamond: The diamond symbol triggers the Diamond Bonus Round. You’ll be taken to a different screen, where you get to pick items and collect their coin value until you collect all eight diamonds or two items without diamonds.
Reign of Gnomes is worth a try simply for the novel approach to bonus features. In most games, free spins are the reward for your efforts, but with Reign of gnomes, you get more than that, leading to more payouts. Gain enough payouts, and you could become as wealthy as a gnome.
