Description and Review: 7 Lucky Dwarfs is, as you might already guess, a Snow White and the Seven Dwarves themed slot.
And, as usual, Leander Games have done well with the theme. All of the seven Dwarfs are represented on the reels in the form of cute symbols. Every time you hit a winning line involving one of the Dwarves, you’ll see him show his personality. Personal fave? Grumpy. But wins involving Dopey and Happy are well animated too. While, technically, the look of a game isn’t integral to it’s quality as a slot, it’s good to see a slots provider taking this level of care.
The bonus rounds – there are three – also reflect the overall Snow White theme very clearly.
The most frequently triggered is the ‘Mirror Mirror’ feature but the free spins bonus is especially well done.
Get three scattered Dwarf house symbols and you are taken to a new screen where the reels spin to determine whether you get the standard free spins round or the ‘Dig In Our Mine’ round.
Most commonly you will get the ‘Goodland Casino’ free spins round. Initially, you get 5 free spins. However, the appearance of Snow White will freeze the free spins countdown, so you could get up to 15. At the end of the round, you choose one of the seven Dwarves, who reveals your win multiplier – up to 7x. This is a nicely thought out bonus round. Especially because wins during this round are all scattered. So any three or more of the same symbol will give you a win – they don’t have to be consecutive.
Being perfectly honest, we would have rated this game an 8 out of 10 and added it to our featured games section if it wasn’t for one thing. Seven Lucky Dwarfs is one of those slots where the promise of a sizeable win is always just out of reach. You would need to get to the ‘Dig In Our Mine’ round to have any chance of the 4000x line bet the game promises. Trouble is: 8 times from 10, you’ll just get the regular free spins round.
Don’t get me wrong: this is a good fun slot game with excellent graphics and a strong theme. Small wins occur regularly and you most certainly can end your session up a few hundred dollars. Lucky Dwarfs should – for sure – be on your list of games to play for real money. I’d suggest a total bet size of €2 as being optimum. But, of course, it’s up to you to experiment to hit that all important sweet spot to maximize your return.
I’ll end this review by saying that more online casinos should feature Leander Slots. They have a lot going for them and 7 Lucky Dwarfs is no exception.
