The Barbarian Gold slot game can be found at casinos offering Iron Dog software. Iron Dog are one of the smaller software providers currently on the market, but the appear to be a subsidiary of the far larger and better established 1x2Gaming. They do not offer a full casino platform, but primarily seem to be used as a bolt on package for extra slots games. Iron Dog do publish the Return to Player (RTP)/House Edge information for their slots games within the game paytable. As such we know that the house edge for Barbarian Gold s is 3.7%.
Barbarian Gold is a 5 reel slot and each reel is 3 symbols high. The slot comes with paylines, 20 in total, playing from left to right.
– This slot has a fantasy theme. The Barbarian mentioned in the title is the most valuable symbol and he finds himself thrown in with various green skinned bad guys, ranging from an orc or a goblin and a snake person.
Wild – The Standard Wild symbol is a “Shield”, which will substitute for all symbols other than Scatters. If the Wild lands at the top of the reels it will expand to fill them. This is the base game Wild, the one you are going to see the most often. However, there are another 2 Wild symbols available in the Free Spins feature. I will describe them in the Bonus Features section of this review.
Free Spins – The “Skull” symbol is the Free Spins/Scatter symbol. You need 3 or more of them anywhere on the reels to trigger the Free Spins feature.
Free Spins – There are two levels of Free Spins: The Lava Cave Free Spins and the Gold Cave Free Spins. If you land 3, 4 or 5 Free Spins symbols in the base game you will trigger 8, 10 or 12 Free Spins in the Lava Cave.
Lava Cave Free Spins – Expanding Wilds land during the Free Spins in the same way that they do during the base game. However, every time they land during the Lava Cave Free Spins they will increase a Win Multiplier by 1. 3, 4 or 5 Scatters during the Lava Free Spins will trigger 4, 5 or 6 Free Spins respectively in the Gold Cave Free Spins feature.
Gold Cave Free Spins – Expanding Wilds land during these Free Spins but the key difference is that they, not only, increase the multiplier by 1, they also award an additional Free Spin. Gold Cave Free Spins retrigger in the same way that they were triggered in the first place.
Pay to Play – This slot also comes with a Pay to Play option that allows you to play the Free Spins feature without waiting for it to trigger. 8 Free Spins will cost you 100 times the bet; 10 will cost you 150 times the bet an 12 will cost you 200 times the bet.
