Barbarian Gold Slot (Iron Dog)

Barbarian Gold (Iron Dog)Barbarians and treasures work well together, and Iron Dog has proved this with their new slot release. From the old days, riches have always been a great motivation for starting wars.

Iron Dog designed Barbarian Gold in a simple yet fun way. I love how they have incorporated the cartoon-style graphics, which give the slot a very pleasant appearance.

Game Set-Up

For the layout, Iron Dog has gone for the usual 5x3 reels and 20 pay lines. This is the most common slot game-set up in most modern games.

Barbarian Gold has fairly high volatility, but the slot also comes with excellent features. These include multi-level free spins, increasing multipliers and expanding wilds among others.

Betting and Prizes

Barbarian Gold does not seem to favour high rollers gives that the betting ranges between $0.20 and $20 per spin. This means that you can only use between $0.01 and $1per line.

In the base game, payouts are not very impressive, and the much that you can get is only 500x the stake.

However, with the help of free spins, this can go to as much as 10,000x the stake (equivalent to $200,000).

In most scenarios, high payouts translate to high volatility, and this is the case with the Barbarian Gold slot.  

The slot’s RTP is 96.30% which is ideal for taming its high volatility.

Barbarian Gold Slot Features

The wild symbol is the most obvious feature symbol, and it appears in the image of an Owl Mask.

It’s an expanding symbol and every time it shows up on the reels, it will end up covering it in full. The result will be a large WILD logo which will appear underneath the mask. This large wild logo will simultaneously cover the entire three positions.

The most interesting part in the base game is when the free spins come into action. These can be triggered with the help of Cow Skull scatters. The scatter should appear on 3 to 5 reels, and this will reward you with 8 to 12 free spins.

The firsts to go is the Lava Cave Free Spins, which will come with a 1x multiplier.  Each time an expanding wild appears, the multiplier will increase by 1x. The multiplier’s size is not limited, and neither is there a reset of its value during the spinning action.

The second free spin level is the Gold Cave. This one will come your way when you manage to retrigger a new set of 3 to 5 scatter symbols. Additionally, you will also get 4 to 6 rounds.

Theme & Design

Just like its name suggests, the slot has a barbarian theme. Its graphics suggest that the actin could have taken place thousands of years ago.

Among the feature, symbols are icons that have an Owl Mask while others may have Cow Skull, star, ogres, snakes, swords, as well as an axe or barbarians.

For Barbarian Gold, Iron Dog has used cartoon-style graphics which are of very high quality.


Barbarian Gold is an excellent slot game that seems to have everything right,

From the payouts to the RTP, and the general design, the game is one of the bests releases by Iron Dog that I have come across in the recent past.

However, the game may not be suitable for beginners given its high volatility.

Also, its low betting prices may not encourage a lot of high to rollers. However, Barbarian Gold is a great free slot game that is worth playing.
