Can you get through the cave of lava and find the cave of gold? It won’t be easier but huge multipliers will be your reward in this Barbarian Gold slot.
The Conan the Barbarian slot brand may belong to another game studio, but that hasn’t stop Iron Dog from creating their own unique spin on the genre.
Here you have 5 reels and 3 rows full of symbols – from the long-haired Barbarian as the highest paid symbol of the lot, to his nemesis, the… evil… green… snake… Vulcan? He’s definitely evil because he has a 6 eyed snake as a companion. And so probably an alien.
Then you have swords, axes and a mace, followed by hearts, club, diamonds and spades as the lowest-paid symbols. That’s 10 paying in symbol in total, with also a very special wild following in these strange Fantasy adventures.
Because it’s Fantasy, Iron Dog studios can get away with anything, and here they showcase a beautiful game with big bold beautiful symbols that fit perfectly on a tablet or mobile casino.
The symbol you’ll be watching out for anyway is the swords and shield, which is the wild symbol. When it shows up it will expand and cover the whole reel if it can create a win.
It is by far the most effective way of getting enough wins to make things interesting in this Barbarian Gold slot machine, especially in the base game. The paytable is a little on the low side, that is, until you hit the free spin bonus rounds.
When you hit 3 scatters you will trigger 8 Lava Cave free spins. during the free spins, every time a wild show up the multiplier on all the wins will increase by 1. You can trigger as much as 12 free spins to start with if you find 5 scatters, but it’s rare.
What you really want to achieve is a re-trigger in the free spins, not unlike the Legacy of Egypt slot machine. That’s because if get 3 or more scatters in the lava chamber, you’ll get extra bonus spin in the Gold Cave free spins round.
Not only is the multiplier transported over, but now, every time a wild show ups it increases the multiplier AND adds a free spins. So you get a whole load more value for money.
It’s probably not worth using the buy the bonus feature till the end of your gameplay, but with a little bit of luck on your side and a whole load of multipliers, getting wins close to 1,000x your bet is within reach.

We wavered on what rating to give this Barbarian Gold slot review, but eventually settled for a very playable 3 stars.
Were we going to give it less? No. We had few issues with this casino game, other than we've seen it before, so we were tempted to give it more. Which isn't really a critique as we've played and tested slot reviews in the thousands.
The point is, this is a decent game, with a decent paytable and a decent theme. The expanded wild keeps things moving and the multipliers add excitement in the free spins - what's not to love?
The paytable could do with being a little more generous, but with big multipliers and hard-hitting free spins, it more than made up for a fairly easy-going base game.
Barbarian Gold is a 5x3 reel 20 payline slot machine with expanded wilds in the base game and free spins. The bonus games have multipliers that increase with every wild that shows up on screen.
