A beautiful 20 payline game, this Gnome Wood slot doesn’t lack imagination, but fails to bring you fantastic wins.
Hands up who here doesn’t love walking wilds? If that’s you then… what’s wrong with you?
Games like the Jack & The Beanstalk slot have made this feature famous, giving you value for money on each spin.
Basically, whenever a wild shows up, it will move from right to the left, giving you a free re-spin until it falls off the screen.
You essentially get lots of free-spins, and that’s not even mentioning the Gnome Wood slot bonus games.
When it comes to design and theme, Rabcat studios are hard to beat.
Just look at their so-so original Castle Builder game, which despite some flaws, is so eye catching, you end up playing just to keep looking.
The Gnome Wood video slot cranks up that feeling thanks to original characters set in an enchanted forest straight out of a fairytale.
The symbols are a mix of ruins and magical artefacts that together give this a very unique feel.
At any time whilst spinning these 5 reels, those walking wilds can come with a 2x multiplier that can give you hope for huge wins.
So why is this only a 3 star slot game review, when all we’ve done is say good things?
Namely because there’s just too many symbols on the reels, half of which don’t give you your bet back even if you get a 4 of a kind symbol win.
And seeing as these symbols don’t come stacked, after a few spins, it’s hard to keep the excitement when most wins barely cover your bet.
If you read the paytable, the free spins don’t actually sound that impressive – you get 10 free spins and that’s it. Even the Dragon’s Myth slot gave you pays both way reels.
But actually, what the Gnome Wood slot machine paytable doesn’t reveal is that those wandering wilds wander onto your screen far more often, giving you an air of excitement sometimes lacking in the base game.
Granted, it’s not always enough to bring you huge wins, but when you have several wilds on screen, moving around, some with 2x multipliers…
Then you can almost feel close to getting that 3,600 times your bet top win, and remember why you love those walking wilds so very much.

Walking Wilds and Free Re-spins: The shiny blue rune is the wild symbol. When it lands on any of the reels, it will 'walk' from where it is, and move to the left by one reel, each time giving you a free re-spin.
So if it lands on reel 5, you'll get 5 free re-spins as the wild wanders from the right hand side of the screen, to the left hand side, and finally off screen.
You can get several wilds on screen at once, though rare, giving you more free re-spins.
More interestingly, every once in a while a wild will come with a 2x multiplier that can help create bigger wins.
Scatters and Free Spins: The golden coin with the Gnome face is the scatter symbol. Get 3 on show on screen, and regardless of where they land, you'll trigger 10 free spins.
Here you'll be taken to a different section of the wood, where those walking wandering wilds appear more often.
You can re-trigger the free spins if you catch a further 3 scatters during the Gnome Wood bonus games.
Gamble Feature: After each win you have a chance to gamble your winnings. Simply pick from either the gold and bronze pot.
If magical effects appear above the pot, then you've doubled your win. If the pot falls to the ground, then you lose your winnings.
You can gamble up to 5 times or until the maximum gamble winning of 10,000 in cash is reached.
This Gnome Wood slot on mobile is probably the hardest hitting of all the Rabcat Studios games.
It's got great wins hidden in the reels, thanks to those walking wild which can give you free re-spin, after re-spin, making you feel like one spin can last forever.
Unfortunately it lacks some punch in the base game, and the free spins are no guarantee that all those symbols will somehow line up over 5 reels.
It's beautiful enough that it's worth a spin, but doesn't have the longevity of other Rabcat gems like the brilliant Castle Builder 2 slot.
