Mining Fever Slot Review – Rabcat Gaming

The studio Rabcat Gaming has been established for 19 years and a strong force in the casino industry. Their games can be found on a lot of casino sites and has multiple B2B platform partners. With a long list of game releases, including some popular picks. Such as ‘Nikola Tesla’s Incredible Machine‘ and ‘Sherlock Of London‘. The studio has just released a brand new slot, titled ‘Mining Feveravailable to play across sites now.

Set deep underground in the mines where the slot background is set. With minecart tracks, lanterns and tunnels. You will see a cart moving on the track now and then with a simple animation effect. I love the detailed artwork and visual design for this game. Even the smallest details are very effective and show off the set theme.

Mining Fever has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 243 betways. This game is low variance with a set RTP of 96.13% and max win capped at 500x. You can bet from £0.20 – £40.

Mining Fever Symbols & Paytable

There are 13 symbols in total, this includes 4 low paying symbols. These are represented by J, Q, K and A. There are also 5 premium symbols, these are represented by crystals, coins, rings, chests and crowns. In addition to these regular symbols is a pickaxe/shovel wild and 3 different scatter symbols. The highest paying symbols is the crown premium and wild, both pay 25x for a line of 5.

The wild symbol can replace any other symbol to complete a winning combination, except the scatter symbol. There are 3 different scatter symbols, as 3 dwarves with green, red and blue borders. These dwarves are named Driler, Bombur and Thundar.

Mining Fever Features

When 2 identical scatter symbols appear 1 or 2 bonus spins are triggered with the bonus spins feature corresponding to which dwarf appears. These 3 features are;
Driler’s Dwarven Drill – 1 bonus spin, one reel is selected as a golden vein and wild symbols are placed on the complete reel.

Bombur’s Dwarven Bomb – Bomb appears on a random position on reels 2-4 and 2 bonus spins are awarded. In the first spin, the bomb is a fixed wild, during the second spin the bomb explodes and 3-4 wilds randomly appear.

Thundar’s Dwarven Hammer – 1 bonus spin, 2 adjacent reels selected and filled with identical symbols.

When all 3 different scatter symbols appear 8 free spins are awarded. You cannot win extra spins or retrigger this feature. Spins are played with the ‘Dwarven Gold Train Feature‘. The 3 dwarves drive in their train across the reel set leaving a trail of wild symbols. This train starts on reel 1 and has 3 carriages which are wilds. After each spin, the train moves 1 space right and vertically in a random direction. When the carriage leaves the reel set a new one will appear again on reel 1.


Overall, I really did enjoy playing this game. However, the max win of 500x is so disappointing for such a well-made game. Visuals are on point and features help enhance gameplay. Be sure to check out the game for yourself and be sure to look at our exclusive casino offers.
