Dam Rich is a slot based around three beavers who work in construction. These hard-working beavers are found throughout this fun Amaya designed, involved throughout the base game and the bonus feature.
In this game you will find hidden, randomly awarded expanding wilds, while the free spins bonus feature sees the beavers help strengthening the dam – the better they do their job, the more cash you’ll win.
This Amaya designed slot has a total of five reels and each reel shows three symbols when the reels come to a stop. The game has a total of 30 win lines and pays from left to right. The highest paying symbol in the game is the Dam Right title symbol and offers up a top prize of 1,000 coins for the maximum five in a row. A not so hard-working beaver is next and worth 750 coins, this character lounging on an inflatable with a glass in his hand. A working beaver and a ‘Beavers at Work’ construction sign each have a top prize of 500 coins, while the standard symbols are completed by the plans for the dam, beaver floss (have you seen those teeth!), a hard hat, pinecones, a saw and a hammer with nails.
The standard wild symbol is represented by a piece of wood showing the word ‘wild’ across it. This symbol only appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. As such, there is no win amount linked directly with the wild, but the fact that it will substitute for any other symbol in the game apart from the scatters, means it will enable additional wins. There is some extra ‘wild’ action in the bonus features too.
The first bonus feature of the game is the hidden expanding wilds. You’ll see two beavers wandering about the top of the reels at times and occasionally they’ll meet and send a log down one of the reels. This log acts as an expanding wild, meaning the whole reel will now substitute for other symbols. The reels will only be evaluated after the expanding wild has appeared.
The major bonus feature of the game is the free spins round. You’ll enter this feature by hitting the beaver scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 during the same spin. You’ll now see flashing numbers appearing on the screen and clicking the mouse will see your number of spins revealed (the best-case scenario is 20 free spins).
During these free spins, there is a hard-hatted beaver who appears on reels 1 and 5 and every time he lands he will jump off the reels and start work on the dam. The more of these beavers that appear throughout the feature, the stronger the dam will become and the more bonus money you’ll make (in addition if course to the money won during the free spins).
The expanding wild also appears during the free spins bonus feature, although this time with a bit of a difference. Having fallen onto the reels, this wild will now move horizontally to the right, producing many more wilds on the reels.
As you might expect from a slot with the word ‘Dam’ in its name, the backdrop to the reels shows the dam, although at this moment in time it looks real disheveled with chips of wood everywhere. A log runs along the top of the reels and this is where you’ll see the very humorous looking beavers plying their trade. This game is high on humor throughout in fact, all of the symbols designed in a cartoon style, while throughout the game you’ll hear squeaking noises coming from the beavers. The best animation comes when the two beavers meet at the top, sending the wooden log down onto the reels, before they jump on the end of it and they all fly off into the distance.
You won’t find many slots about beavers building dams online, though even if you did, this would come high on the list when it comes to playability. The base game is a lot of fun throughout and you’ll never know exactly when those expanding wilds are going to hit. It’s the free spins bonus feature that is the highlight of the game however. You could win many free spins, some oversized pay outs when the expanding wilds hit, and a nice bonus prize at the end.
