DEAD CANARY SLOT REVIEW
After finding the perfect brew recipe for the perfect beer, the angry dwarf is now on his next quest to find true love! Dead Canary is a 6-reel and up to 1728 ways to win online slot from Nolimit City with a mining theme. The game comes with xBomb Wilds, Wild Mining Feature, Canary Free Spins, and Buy Feature.
Dead Canary Slot Symbols
Symbols on the reels include low-pay card royals – 10, J, Q, K, A, and high-pay grappling hooks, flasks, compasses, rats, and dwarfs. A dynamite bunch is the xBomb Wild and substitutes for all symbols except the canary bird Scatter symbol.
Dead Canary Features
The game is played in a 3-3-2-2-1-1 reel area that can go up to a maximum of 3-4-3-4-3-4 reel area. Winning combinations explode, and remaining symbols tumble downwards, allowing new symbols to drop in. One blocked row will open up after a win, an xBomb explosion adjacent to the barrier, or a Wild Mining feature. The Multipliers in the bottom positions are awarded when the barrier is removed, and the symbols are destroyed or if the removed barrier reveals a Scatter symbol.
xBomb Wild Multiplier
An xBomb Wild explodes symbols in a cross pattern next to it and increases the Win Multiplier by 1 for the next tumble. Scatter symbols do not explode.
Wild Mining Feature
The Wild Mining feature is triggered when 3, 4, or 5 same types of paying symbols align diagonally, and there is no winning combination. The triggering symbols are removed, and a Wild symbol is created in the middle position of the alignment.
- 3 symbols award 1 Wild Bomb.
- 4 symbols award 2 Wild Bombs.
- 5 symbols award 3 Wild Bombs.
Wild Bomb explosions will increase the Win Multiplier by 1 for the next tumble. All other symbols will explode, except xBomb symbols. If a Scatter symbol gets blown away, it will reappear in a random position in the next collapse.
There are 2 types of Scatter symbols in the game: Silver Cage and Gold Cage Scatters. The Scatter symbol can land anywhere on the grid. If it lands behind the barrier it will not come into play until it is unblocked. Scatters stick to their positions and remain during the Canary Free Spins unless the Scatter is in the vault position –if so, it will then be pushed to an available space towards the center.
Canary Free Spins
Landing 3 Scatter symbols of any kind trigger 3 Canary Free Spins. Every xBomb that lands in view reset the spin count to 3. The reel area becomes a 4-3-4-3-4-3-4 with 4 locked vaults in the corners. Albeit the vaults are locked, they still collect Coins and Multipliers from 3 neighbour positions. Vaults can be opened up by xBomb explosions. Unlocked vaults award all collected Coins and Multipliers at the end of the Free Spins.
Scatter symbols start with a 1x and collect Coins, Multipliers, Upgrades, and the Rat and Dwarf Enhancers.
- Silver Cage Scatter collects in an x-shape 1 position from itself.
- Gold Cage Scatter collects in an x-shape from the entire rows.
Scatter symbols start with 3 lives, and the collected wins will be awarded only if the birds die. xBombs and Gas symbols make the Scatters lose one life. When the bird dies, it will respawn in its cage.
Here are the special symbols that can land during Free Spins:
- Coin Value – The Coin value is added to the Scatter symbol.
- Bomb – Bombs explode and affect their neighbour positions in an x-shape. The explosion removes one life from the Scatters, opens up vaults, and resets the number of spins to 3.
- Multiplier – Doubles or triples the collected value of Scatter symbols and vaults.
- Gas – Affects all birds adjacent to the gas symbol and reduces the Scatter symbol lives by one.
- Dwarf – When a Scatter collects the Dwarf symbol, it becomes a Persistent Collector for each spin until the Dwarf dies. It also adds 1 life to the affected Scatter. When the Dwarf dies, a bird will respawn in its cage.
- Rat – When a Scatter collects the Rat symbol, it becomes a Persistent Payer. The Rat will share its collected value to all other Scatters for each spin until it dies. When the Rat dies, a bird respawns in its cage.
- Upgrade – Upgrades Silver Cage Scatters to Gold Cage Scatters. Adds 1 life to the affected Scatter symbol.
