Badgers are clever animals, especially when it comes to building dams. They are also skilled at digging for gold in mine shafts, as depicted in Yggdrasil’s Badger Miners game. The game features impressive 3D visuals and showcases badgers in action underground. A random multiplier system is always active, which can multiply or add multipliers together to enhance winnings. The reels are filled with badger characters and mining equipment, and Yggdrasil introduces a unique Cash Wild feature. These wild symbols absorb the cash value they generate from line wins and move upward with each respin that results in a win. They even remain in play during free spins in the bonus round until they reach the top of the grid, offering the potential to win up to 10,000 times your initial bet. The premium symbols pay between 1.2 and 5 times your bet for a five-of-a-kind win, and the Wild symbol is represented by a mining cart filled with gold nuggets. This wild symbol substitutes for other pay symbols to help complete or improve line wins, but it has no value on its own. The game includes Multipliers and Operators above the middle three reels on the main grid, with multiplier values ranging from x2 to x100 per spin. The operators can combine the multipliers with a + or * sign, resulting in even larger multipliers that significantly boost wins. For example, a 5 * 5 value awards a reel win multiplier of x25. Cash Wilds can appear on the middle three reels and also substitute for pay symbols to enhance wins. Additionally, these symbols absorb the win amount and nudge upward with each respin following a win. The multiplier values do not change during the respins feature, which concludes when the Cash Wild fails to produce a win. The Bonus Round is triggered by collecting five scatters either in a single base game spin or during the respins feature. This grants you seven free spins, and each additional scatter beyond the minimum of five awards an additional two free spins. The bonus round plays similarly to the base game, but the Cash Wilds remain in play between free spins until they reach the top of the grid. The bonus round cannot be retriggered, but non-UK players have the option to purchase it for 95 times their stake. The bonus round has an organic hit rate of 1 in 300 spins. A demonstration of the base game is shown in the video at 0:39 into the 2:28-minute highlights video. You can witness how the seven free spins play out by clicking the play button below. While Badger Miners initially appears exciting, it doesn’t quite deliver the same level of excitement during gameplay. The multiplier system seemed promising, but it ultimately didn’t have a significant impact. The computer game’s 3D visuals are visually appealing, and the badgers are charming as they work in the mine. However, the game can become repetitive after playing for a while. The Cash Wild feature, on the other hand, shows potential as an innovative addition, and we hope to see it in future releases. As the Cash Wild absorbs the value of wins and moves upward with each respin, accompanied by a decent multiplier boost, it has the potential to lead to significant winnings. The only difference in the bonus round is that the Cash Wild remains in play between free spins, which can be advantageous. Additionally, the potential to win up to 10,000 times your bet is decent. Despite this, Badger Miners didn’t quite meet our expectations, but we encourage players to try the demo game and form their own conclusions.
