Take a trip back to the medieval times, and try to find the secret gold with the rough barbarians. It is time for some plundering, as Iron Dog Studio is representing to us their Barbarian Gold, a game that offers us 5 reels, 3 rows with 20 paylines in total.
The theme is quite interesting, as the barbarians were really the menace of their times, terrorizing the towns, and taking everything they want on their way. The provider let us into that world and offered us some great ways to win awesome rewards in this game.
The game's entire appearance is done in an animated style, and the background of the game is truly marvelously done. It shows us the medieval castle in the distance, while the grid is formed by the wooden spears. The soundtrack is also designed in medieval spirit, and it will definitely turn your battle mode on.
For the low paid symbols, the provider decided for the regular card suits, which are beautifully crafted with a wooden frame. For the high paid symbols they choose ones that contribute to the theme a lot more and are represented by axes, clubs, swords, green monsters, lizards, and the most valuable of them all, the barbarian himself. It will provide a win up to 12.5 times the stake for five in a row. The wild symbol is represented by a shield with the classic wild logo on it, and two swords crossed. The scatter symbol took shape of an animal skull.
With the RTP set at 96.30% which is at quite a reasonable level and the game's pretty high volatility, it could be heaven for players that like the more bumpy ‘’rides’’. The betting range is not so wide, but it has something to offer with the minimum bet at 0.20 coins per spin, and the maximum bet at 20 coins per spin. The maximum payout in the base game is 500 times the stake, but it will rise significantly in the Free Spin feature and can climb to 10000 times the stake.
As for the features, the provider offered us only a couple but they are quite rewarding. They are harder to get to, but once unlocked they will provide loads of opportunities for you. From expanding wilds to great multipliers, this game has it all.
The first one to mention is an Expanding Wild feature, and it will be activated whenever the wild symbol lands it the top row of the grid after which it expands to cover up the entire reel. This feature can be triggered in the base game, as well as in the Free Spins feature, and it can also appear on more than one reel in a single round.
There are two types of Free Spins in this game, and that is also something really exciting about both of them. The first one is the Lava Cave Free Spins feature, and it is triggered by landing at least three scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. When it happens you will be rewarded with 8, 10, or 12 free spins depending on the number of the triggering scatter symbols. During the feature expanding wilds can still appear, and every time this occurs you will get your multiplier raised by one. This multiplier will not go back to zero during free spins, and it can only go up which is a great thing.
Lastly there is the second Free Spins feature which can only be triggered during the first free spins round in the same way. Then you will enter the Gold Cave Free Spins feature which offers you expanding wilds that reward you with raising multipliers or free spins.
