New Game out now: Garden Gnomes

Apparat Gaming, the popular German software provider behind fan-favourite slots Mystic Forest and Sticky Star Fruits, is back with a bang this month as it unveils a magical new addition to its ever-expanding game portfolio with the fairytale-themed release, Garden Gnomes. 

Played over five reels and 10 fixed paylines, Garden Gnomes is set in an idyllic mountain village and features a colourful collection of pint-sized creatures as its high-value symbols. With these diminutive dwarves all having their own unique personalities, players can land prizes of up to 100x their bet for any five-of-a-kind gnome combo, with substitute wilds filling in to help them complete winning paylines. 

Where the magic really happens, however, is in the game’s exciting free spins feature, which can be triggered by landing three or more mine cart bonus symbols or by using the optional “Buy Feature” button for a cost of 87x the selected stake. Once activated, night will fall over the village backdrop and players will be transported to a new set of reels, where they’ll receive an initial reward of 15 free spins. 

On this enhanced gameboard, not only will the conventional nine-through-ace playing card symbols be removed to leave only gnomes, but players will also notice that an additional column of orbs will appear to the left of the reels. Now whenever a winning gnome combination is hit, a multiplier will be added to its corresponding space, increasing the value of any subsequent wins using the same gnome. 

With these multiplier values starting at 2x and increasing up through 4x, 6x, 10x, 15x and finally even 30x the current win, there are big prizes to be had – especially when several gnomes are all receiving a boost at once. But that’s not all. Should players successfully achieve a win with each of the five coloured gnomes during their 15 free spins, they’ll receive a further 15 games with all currently active multipliers still being applied. 

This way, players can enjoy up to 30 free spins with maximum multipliers of 30x being added to each winning gnome combination, with this creating a medium-high volatility game with a maximum potential return to player of 96.06% that can be enjoyed from as little as €0,10 per spin on all platforms. 

Martin Frindt, Co-Founder & Chief Product Officer at Apparat Gaming, said:

“At Apparat Gaming, we’ve always believed there’s a little magic in every garden gnome – and in our enchanting slot of the same name, these quirky beings will be all too happy to share some of their good fortune with players.” 

“With Grumpy, Sleepy, Flirty, Happy and Drunk all helping them on their journey to uncovering hidden riches, each gnome has its own unique personality and charm; and all five can combine to great effect in the game’s free spins feature, where massive multipliers of 10x can be added to every winning spin!”
