We’ve all heard of the phrase, ‘home sweet home’, haven’t we? Well, Gnome Sweet Home gives that phrase a twist with this thoroughly entertaining online slot game. Rival Gaming is the proud creator of the slot, which takes you right into the heart of a gnome’s lifestyle. If you thought that gnome’s only came as statues that sit in your garden then this game is out to prove otherwise. Featuring detailed graphics, entertaining animations, and an upbeat soundtrack, Gnome Sweet Home is likely to keep you entertained and happy.

Everything takes place on a standard layout that is made up of five reels and three rows. Alongside this standard video slot layout, Gnome Sweet Home also has a set of 50 pay lines for you to bet on. These lines aren’t fixed in position though, so you can easily customise the active amount of them. Just utilise the + and – buttons at either side of the reels for this. You can also adjust your wager per spin; first, pick a coin value between 1p and 25p and then choose how many of those coins you’d like to be in action per spin between one and ten. This gives you a maximum bet per spin of £125.

The visual aspect of this game is one of its most exciting. The background will take you to a stone pathway which is surrounded by trees, flowers, and little gnome houses. Then, upon the reels of the game you’ll see the various symbols beginning with the playing card symbols running from 10 through to A, each of which has been adorned with something from the woods. Then comes a white and red birdbox, followed by a cherub fountain statue. The female gnome with pigtail plaits and a green hat acts as the slot’s highest paying standard symbol, providing maximum rewards of 800x your stake.

Special Features

Wild

There’s another female gnome in operation on these reels; the blonde with a magenta hat. She is also carrying what appears to be a homemade bow ready to go hunting. This symbol is the one that acts as the game’s wild addition, therefore, whenever she shows up on reels one, three and five, she will substitute for all other standard symbols in the slot.

The only exceptions to this rule are the jackpot, bonus, and free spins symbols. Whenever it is possible to form new wins elsewhere, the wild will also expand to cover the entirety of the reel she is on.

Jackpot

Make sure that you keep watch for the arrival of the old gnome with his luscious white beard and smoking pipe. This is the game’s jackpot symbol, which offers up huge pay-outs if it comes into view on the reels on a pay line.

Five of them appearing across the reels will trigger a pay-out of 5,000x your overall wager.

Free Spins

Gnome families need a woodcutter to provide materials for building and heating, and this is where the free spins symbol comes in. The woodcutter gnome needs to appear on the reels in three or more locations to activate the free spins round.

You’ll get 10 free spins when three show up, 20 free spins when four of them appear, and 50 free spins if you should manage to spin five into view. During this round, all winning combinations get to benefit from a 3x multiplier, too.

Bonus

Last of all, this Rival Gaming slot also comes with a bonus game round. It is the carpenter gnome who triggers this, and three or more of him need to come into view in order for it to begin.

In that bonus round, you get to take control of the carpenter gnome (or Mr. Gnome as he’s called in this slot). You basically need to select vegetables from the garden plot in order to feed the gnome family. Different vegetables come with different bonus rewards. Yummy.

When you also include the jackpot symbol and the overall theme of the slot itself, Rival has definitely created something special here.
