Gnome Wood, which— together with 108 Heroes Multiplier Fortunes—was released on September 6, 2017, is a fantasy-oriented slot game. Gnome Wood is labeled “A Rabcat Gambling Production”, but Microgaming launched and manages it. A gnome-inspired game, slot games like Gnome Wood include Roamin’ Gnome from Amaya Gaming and Gnome from Igrosoft.
Gnomes are mythical bearded male dwarves wearing witch hats, synonymous with juvenile literature. The name “Gnome Wood” is borrowed from the fictional woodland setting where the featured gnome lives among coexisting personified animals. Gnome Wood players match three, four, or five symbols whose winnings can be gambled.
Gnome Wood Game Characteristics
Gnome Wood has a 5X3 grid for its 25 non-adjustable pay lines. These are the fourteen Gnome Wood win symbols. First, there are the four classical elements of life: a green “earth” element, a blue “wind” element, a yellow “fire” element, and an orange “water” element. The others are: a diamond-shaped pink crystal ball, a blue stone-encased twig, a hardcover spell book, a copper cauldron (pot), a golden cauldron, a mouse fitted with a horse headgear-like strap, a furry yellow gnome, a “Wild” (substituting) element, “X2” Wild symbol, and a gnome-engraved golden (scatter) “Free Spins” coin.
On its starting page, Gnome Wood shows its three key components: the “Wild” and “X2 wild” symbols, which are collectively named the wandering wilds; and bonus and free spins. Pressing the “start” icon takes players to its interface, where only the stake is increased or decreased from the default setting’s $0.10.
The Gnome Wood bet values $0.01, $0.02, $0.05, $0.10, $0.20, $0.25, $0.50, $1.00, and $2.00. The total bets resulting from multiplying the aforementioned values with the 25 fixed lines are $0.25 (this is the minimum total bet), $0.50, $1.25, $2.50, $5.00, $6.25, $12.50, $25.00, and $50.00 (this is the maximum total bet).
The Gnome Wood payouts depend with the total bets. For example, the $50.00 total bet yields these payouts for three, four, and five matches, respectively. The earth element offers $6.00, $16.00, and $15.00. The wind element pays $8.00, $24.00, and $100.00. The fire or water elements give $10.00, $30.00, and $150.00. The crystal ball gives $12.00, $50.00, and $200.00. The twig offers $16.00, $60.00, and $250.00.
The spell book offers $20.00, $90.00, and $400.00. The copper cauldron offers $20.00, $100.00, and $500.00. The mouse offers $30.00, $200.00, and $1400.00. The gnome pays $40.00, $400.00, and $2000.00. Five matching “Wild” symbols pay $2000.00.
However, after successfully using five gambling chances in the “gamble” part—it is all about choosing between the copper cauldron and golden cauldron—players can increase their regular winnings up to $10000.00; a tumbling cauldron means a lost bet, while an illusion erupting from a cauldron means successful bet. Gnome Wood, a progressive jackpot slot game, gives players ten free spins if more than three “Free Spins” symbols show up on the reels.
The Gnome Wood software is good and the sounds are enchanting, especially the chirping birds. The 3D graphics are eye-catching, ranging from the ladybird-like mushrooms and a gnome riding a mouse executing kangaroo-like jumps.
