Theme of The Game
Gnome Wood is a mobile slot machine that is designed by Rabcat, and which can be found at Microgaming powered casinos, the game being offered exclusively to their sites. The story here appears to revolve around a cute gnome, a main character that’s shown as he’s riding a squirrel at one point.
You see the environment that he’s in, a magical forest with his house being made in the side of a tree, a door showing there. There are broken altars further away, toadstools all around, while many of the game’s options and displays are placed on the sides of big rocks.
Moving on to the game’s reels, the configuration is a standard one, of 5×3. The symbols give us various round stone icons which have representations of nature’s elements on them, alongside images of books, cauldrons, a staff, potions, a squirrel, the gnome and the wild logo.
Though you will find their games only at Microgaming powered casinos, Rabcat is an independent developer that has signed an exclusivity agreement with the software company. They’re offering a decent collection of mobile slots, that they created over the years, and they appear to be the sort to release high quality content, rather than a lot of titles.
How To Play It
You don’t need to spend a lot of time setting up the wager in Gnome Wood. The game delivers 25 fixed lines and asks you only that you choose a total wager. It could be as small as $0.25, or as large as $25, but if you know which value you want there is no need to fiddle with the settings since there aren’t too many of them to use here.
The game feels like a standard title, in terms of gameplay. You set up your wager, you click on the Spin button, and that’s about it.
I’ve found that the game has two different wild features, both of them showing the wild logo alongside something else. One of them is the Wandering Wild, colored in blue, while the other is a Wandering Wild with a multiplier, and it comes in a purple version.
A Wandering Wild, when it shows up, will be used as a replacement for any other symbol if that gets you a winning combination. You are not going to get such wilds on the 1st reel.
As for the Wandering Wild with a 2x multiplier, it’s also used as a replacement, the difference being only that it doubles the wins formed with its help. It also doesn’t show up on reel 1 during the paid spins.
Both Wandering Wild versions that I mentioned above, have an additional ability to offer, which triggers whenever they appear on the reels. The simple appearance of one of the two wilds, will trigger bonus spins.
During these spins, Wandering Wilds will move towards the left side of the screen, one position at a time. Once the Wandering Wild leaves the reels, the bonus spins end. You can also get additional Wandering Wilds during these spins, prolonging the feature.
In addition to the bonus spins, the game has free spins as well, to be triggered through the appearance of 3+ Gnome Gold Coin scatters. You will get 10 free spins this way, with Wandering Wilds shown on all five reels.
A couple of different symbols can bring forward the mobile slot’s biggest reward, which stands at $25,000. The 96.63% average Return to Play of the game is on the high end and I’m pleased with it.
Gnome Wood will be an enjoyable game for most, thanks to its graphics in part, but with features contributing a lot as well.
