Misery Mining is the name of the latest slot brought to us by the creative people at Nolimit City. Featuring xBombs, expanding win ways and multiple bonus variations, we expect this to be one of the studio’s most explosive slots to date. There is a lot to cover here, so let’s get this Misery Mining slot review started!
Look out for explosive xBombs
Misery Mining is sort of a sequel to last year’s Fire In The Hole xBomb slot, which was the first slot to introduce the xBomb concept, but there are many new features and surprises in this latest title. As you probably guessed from its name, Misery Mining’s theme is slightly darker – a trend seen in many of Nolimit City’s slots as of late.
The Collapsing Mine feature is a fundamental part of Misery Mining. At the beginning of each spin, only a 3×3 play area and 27 win ways are active, and the rest of the symbols are blocked by barriers. But when xBomb Wilds fall onto the reels, they explode and move the barrier one step out vertically or horizontally, increasing the active play area. Exploding an xBomb in the centre position moves all the barriers one step. With a few well-placed xBomb symbols, you can unlock 823,543 win ways in one spin. Plus, when they explode, xBomb Wilds also increase the win multiplier by 1x.
The collapse mechanic removes winning symbols and replaces them with new symbols from above. Collapses can also be triggered when there is an xBomb explosion without any wins or if less than three scatters are present on the reels. In the latter case, the scatters will transform into non-wild xBombs and trigger explosions.
Win up to 70,000x in the Misery Mining slot game
Innovative bonus features with extreme volatility are something we have come to expect from Nolimit City, and Misery Mining is in no way an exception. The Misery Freespins bonus is triggered by landing three scatters. The standard bonus starts on a 3×3 active play area. But if you land three scatters plus one or two super scatters, the bonus will start with a 3×4 or 3×5 active play area, respectively. You then have two options: you can pick Mouse Mode to receive 8, 10 or 12 free spins, or the more volatile Rat Mode to start with only 3 free spins. In Rat Mode, the free spins are reset to 3 every time you land an additional super scatter or by activating coin carts.
In the bonus, the top row will be filled with various enhancers, including coin wagons, multipliers, bombs, bags, chests and more. These enhancers are activated when a scatter lands on the reel below it. The value of coin wagons are added to side collectors, bombs explode and open up new positions, and multipliers increase the multipliers of the scatter symbols. There are several other enhancer symbols to look out for, so be sure to check out the paytable before playing.
You can also buy the standard Misery Mining free spins bonus with three scatters or three scatters plus one or two super scatters for bigger potential. Misery Mining is available now, and you can find it in our casino!
