Battle Dwarf Xmas review: introduction

This is one of the most creative free play slots that you will find at Slots Temple. Fusing two disparate art styles and genres, a terrifically menacing Father Christmas leads the way on the paytable followed by a dragon, troll and goblin.

An assortment of weapons and armour - an axe, hammer, helmet and shield - offer less impressive wins. The real excitement lies away from the paytable, as Battle Dwarf Xmas is bursting with bonus features. Free spins are there for the taking, along with the extra-special Elf bonus.

Battle Dwarf Xmas only has three reels, each showing three symbols; as a result, there are a mere five paylines. These can’t be adjusted are enough on a slot of this size. Autoplay is available and winning combinations form from the left-hand side of the screen.

You can play this and other Golden Hero slots online in demo mode here at Slots Temple.

Theme, graphics & design

One of the more surreal online slots that we have played, Battle Dwarf Xmas takes the Battle Dwarf formula and - you’ve guessed it - gives it a Christmas twist. This equates to a wonderfully festive tune and piles of snow around the reels, not to mention the menacing Father Christmas at the top of the paytable.

The blend of Dungeons and Dragons-style lore and Christmas is certainly strange, but it works to create a kind of festive macabre that means Battle Dwarf Xmas looks like no other online slot. The setting is a mountainous ruin with an aurora flickering delicately in the sky. Snow drifts across the grid and some of the symbols, such as the axes and shields, are covered in mounds of ice.

This is a slot of contrasts, with the somewhat brutalist look of the ruins and monsters set against the gentler festive imagery. This might have been discordant were it not for a cheerfully buoyant Christmas tune that plays throughout, which consists of bells and even some light singing and gives Battle Dwarf Xmas a mysteriously beautiful atmosphere.

Battle Dwarf Xmas RTP and variance

The variance rating of Battle Dwarf Xmas is yet to be released, but we do know that its RTP is 96.41 per cent. This figure is above the average, so there is certainly nothing to worry about in this department. 

How to play Battle Dwarf Xmas

Despite its imposing facade and fearsome cast of characters, Battle Dwarf Xmas doesn’t present too many significant challenges for the casual player:

  1. Use the menu button to the bottom left to open an explanatory screen on the basics of the game.
  2. Scroll through each of the screens to learn about the paytable and bonus features and to get familiar with the rules.
  3. Close the menu.
  4. Press the dollar sign and use the < and > arrows to increase/decrease your stake.
  5. The fast forward-style button turns turbo spin on, enabling you to breeze through the rounds.
  6. Autoplay is located next to this and you can even set loss/win limits along with your spins.
  7. Set a budget.
  8. Press spin to take on the mountain!

Bet & win sizes

Battle Dwarf Xmas has a minimum stake size of 0.20 and a maximum of 200. Adjusting these is simply a matter of tapping the dollar sign and using the arrows. The highest you can win on a single line is 20x for a combination of five Father Christmas symbols. Let’s look at the full paytable for five matching symbols on a payline:

  • Father Christmas = 20x
  • Dragon = 8x
  • Troll = 5x
  • Goblin = 3x
  • Battleaxe = 0.5x
  • War hammer = 0.30x
  • Helmet = 0.20x
  • Shield = 0.10x

Battle Dwarf Xmas has just five paylines, but this is an ample number for its 3x3 grid configuration.

Battle Dwarf Xmas bonus features

Battle Dwarf Xmas isn’t a slot that holds back, which is never more apparent than with the bonus features:

Free spins

The free spin feature is slightly convoluted, but free rounds are nonetheless awarded via the Battle feature. Locks can appear on any reel during standard play, locking the reel in place and awarding a respin. If another lock lands on the respin, this reel is also locked. Battle commences when all three are frozen in place.

You will have the option to choose the goblin, troll or dragon. If your chosen character wins the battle, you will earn free spins up to a maximum of 20, so it is certainly worth all the effort.

Treasure Rush

This feature triggers at random and covers the reels with treasure chests. Open them to receive between one and ten free spins.

Ragnarok mode

Ragnarok triggers every 20 spins, regardless of the stake size. It is a supercharged version of Treasure Rush with a higher possibility of awarding 20 free spins.

Elf bonus

When the Elf bonus triggers, you will be faced with a set of five playing cards. There is no real method, so just pick one. You will either win a lump sum payout or gain access to the Treasure Rush feature.

Final thoughts

Battle Dwarf Xmas is a high-impact online slot. It makes an immediate impression with its hard-hitting visuals, some striking music, and a menacing set of characters.

This drama carries through to the bonuses, which are all top-quality. Battle is suitably high-octane, Treasure Rush is frenetic, and Ragnarok mode sees the action reach a crescendo. This equates to a barnstorming experience.

Earning free spins could be a little simpler, but the slight difficulties just make the rounds feel even more rewarding. Battle Dwarf Xmas hits hard and leaves a lasting impression.
