Introducing Barbarian Gold - Overview
Barbarian Gold is the latest slot to be developed and released by the Brighton based developer Iron Dog Studio. This is a rugged and fantasy filled slot, or it would have been had it not been for the cartoon styled approach which this developer uses for most of their slots such as Viking Wilds. This slot takes a lighter look which is the total opposite to the slot Barbarian Fury from Nolimit City which was a heavy hitter.
Gameplay, Facts and Figures
When it comes to play the action unfolds on 5-reels and 20 pay lines with the actual reels sitting within a makeshift frame that is constructed using wooden beams. Surrounding the reels is a sparse and barren grass area which has a few trees and there are some turrets from the castle in the background. With regards to the design this is spot on and the slot is rich in vibrant colours.
Before you can embark on your journey you need to select the bet that you are most comfortable playing with, and this can be as little as 20p per spin and up to a maximum of £20 per spin, due to the bet range this slot will appeal to a multitude of players. The return to player stands at 96.3% which is the same as most of the slot games on the market today.
When it comes to the gameplay it is easy and straightforward with the main aim being to land three or more of the same symbols running from the reel furthest left to right. There are 20 fixed pay lines which means all the pay lines are always in play and you cannot change this, but thanks to the colourful symbols that populate them you will not even notice!
Symbols & Rewards
The symbols in Barbarian Gold have a look of a smartphone style which you may have seen in slots from the developers at Relax Gaming. The first thing you should do before you begin to play is look at what the pay table has to offer. Starting with the lowest you have the four card suits clubs, diamonds, hearts, and clubs. These are then followed by theme-based symbols such as a morning star, an axe, a sword, an ogre, a snake, and a barbarian which unsurprisingly is the most valuable.
When it comes to the rewards on offer the highest is the barbarian which will pay out 12.5x your stake for landing five on the same line, with the other higher paying symbols paying from 2.5x through to 3.75x your stake and although these are not the biggest values, they are helped along by the progressive multiplier that comes into play during the free spins feature.
Playing a pivotal role in the game are the expanding wilds which will appear in the base game as well as in the free spins feature. In the base game when you land a 1x1 wild it will expand and cover the entire reel. The wild can substitute for any of the other symbols to create winning combinations and you can also have more than one wild appearing on your reels at the same time.
The features begin to escalate with the assistance of the scatter which is represented by the skull and can appear anywhere on your reels. Landing three, four, or five scatters in view in the base game will reward you with 8, 10 or 12 free spins, respectively. The slot then moves onto the Lava Cave level where the multipliers come into play and are applied to every win, with the win multiplier beginning at x1. The win multiplier increases and cannot decrease or reset through the feature. When you land a wild on a free spin it not only expands as before but it also comes with a win multiplier of +1.
The scatters stay in play during the free spins and if you land 3, 4 or 5 you will be rewarded with 4, 5, or 6 extra spins, respectively. However, when this does happen the game moves into the Gold Cave, and when it does the expanding wilds appear and the multiplier increases by +1 as well as added an extra free spin.
Dependent on where you choose to play the slot it may come with the opportunity for you to take advantage of the buy in function, meaning that you can activate the free spins on demand. The cost for this is 100x, 150x, or 200x and for this you gain 8, 10, or 12 free spins, respectively.
I must admit that when I first trialled Barbarian Gold, I was undecided however after playing it for a while I started to warm to the game and all that it has to offer. In the beginning it felt like a Disney/Norse Saga mash up which had been toned down for children so they could enjoy them and spend their down time pestering their parents to take them to the theme park where they could sample the ride.
However, I learned quite quickly that the slot had far more depth than I first thought, and as often the case in slots the potential arrived during the free spins feature, and it is here that Iron Dog have created an effective slot jam packed with potential. As with most of the slots some of the bonus rounds were poor in terms of monetary returns even when I had activated the bonus buy feature so please take heed. This not only gives you a boost with the important multipliers, which could go up to 30+ if you get a good run and a main element in adding additional free spins to the feature. If you manage to get the slot to full capacity the potential of 10,000x the stake.
This may not be a slot that initially grabs you, and unfortunately the visuals may put some players off, however if you are willing to spend a little time and push through to the bonus game. Get this far though and you will genuinely appreciate everything this slot has to offer.
