Gustav Minebuster scarcely qualifies as a true slot. To be frank, the slot has far more in common with the Germinator-style games which were popular at online casinos a few years back. The Gustav Minebuster slot is loosely themed on dwarves digging for jewels and other riches, so it has a fantasy element to it. Developed by Red Rake Gaming, this highly volatile release features an 8x8 grid of symbols. There are no paylines, with wins occurring in clusters or batches of identical gemstones. Having a crack at this game will cost players at least 0.20 a turn, and stakes can rise to 20.00 a game if you’re fortunate. There is an RTP (return to player) rate of 95.5% which scarcely makes the industry-standard mark, but few players are going to grumble at the 5,000-coin non-progressive jackpot.
Here is an online slot which has a few different features to dish out to players. Firstly, wins are acquired by landing several identical gemstone icons together in clusters or groups. Once a win occurs, the winning emblems are removed from the reels, and new ones drop down into place. This is known as the re-spin feature.
Any wild symbols (they appear as Gustav himself) will remain wild and stay in place for the duration of all re-spins. Wilds can also spring up with multipliers. These can increase by 1x every time a wild appears in a winning combo. Wilds can appear in both the base game and the free spin bonus round.
Another feature which is worth looking at in this slot is the Dynamite: Explosive Wins mode. This can see one or several dynamite sticks move to the symbol screen and explode. When this happens, all symbols within the blast radius will be destroyed, and new ones will drop down to take their place.
The Gustav Minebuster slot does have a free spin bonus, although, like most Cluster Pays style games, it is more of a Free Falls feature. This can be triggered when players land four or more re-spins. Successfully chaining together four or more wins will offer players a handful of free spins, but the number is not exactly great. Gustav Minebuster’s avalanche/cascading wins system of gameplay is very much active in this free spin bonus, as are the dynamite, sticky wilds and wild multiplier aspects of the base game.
