As with all of our slot game reviews it’s important that we go through the different features in the game so that we really get to grips with it before we play.
Thanks to our review we will go through Misery Mining’s theme as well as the different ways you can win in the game with the reels and paylines given further detail.
Theme – Mining
The theme of Misery Mining is all about mining and it’s a common theme that we’ve seen on slots over the years with numerous games having the theme of digging for gold.
The game’s loading screen shows the Misery Freespins detail and lets you see how to land it with the 3 Scatter symbols shown on the screen. The background shows the mine with cobwebs all over suggesting it’s not been touched in a while, with empty bottles of booze all around too suggesting the dwarf character has been drinking on the job.
Similar to most slot games the basic symbols in Misery Mining are 10, J, Q, K and A and the game also has premium symbols with a pipe, compass, whiskey bottle, rat and the dwarf himself all making up those top tier symbols that you want to hit.
The wild symbol in Misery Mining is an xBomb Wild and every time one of these lands in the base game it adds an x Multiplier. This allows you to have bigger hits in the base game and you’re not just waiting for a bonus to hit big.
Misery Mining features 7-reels and up to 7-rows. The game starts with 3x3 and can then progress to the 7x7 grid with the xBombs that can land with each xBomb then blowing up around them.
Paylines in Misery Mining start from 27 ways up to 823,543 win ways.
As always the important detail is the slot’s RTP and it’s no different with Misery Mining. The RTP in this game is 96.09x.
As always this percentage is not the same everywhere and online casinos often alter these figures according to their current policies. To spare you the trouble, we shared a list of UK casinos where you can play this game and the respective RTPs found there.
For an even more informed decision, we advise you to check our reviews and read about the casino's welcome bonuses and deals, game libraries, customer care, payment options, and other things available in each casino.

Misery Freespins is the free spins feature that is on Misery Mining with the feature itself triggered by landing three scatter symbols or one or two Super Scatter symbols. The free spins start with a 3x3, 4x4 or 5x5 reel area originally available. You can then choose from either the Mouse or Rat Mode.
In rat mode the feature starts with 3 spins and activating coin wagons or super scatters at the top resets the number of spins to 3. The top row reveals enhancers for each spin - coin wagons, multipliers, bombs, super scatters, bag, chest, rat or dwarf.
The Misery Mining online slot game doesn’t have a jackpot prize but has a MEGA Max Win with 70,000x available to be won in a single spin.

Play Experience & First Impressions
My play experience of Misery Mining showed that the extreme volatility is there for a reason with a session RTP in my 100 spins test of 42.5%. The number of wins were frequent but rarely did I hit a large amount with my highest base game hit at 6x. The game flows well like any Nolimit City slot with the game instantly recognisable as a Nolimit City one due to the way it plays.
I didn’t hit a bonus during my 100 spins test but this isn’t expected in an extreme volatility game with not even any 2 spin scatter teases showing too. The scatter symbol changes into an xBomb though if it doesn’t trigger the bonus which keeps the game interesting and helps with that flow mentioned earlier.
First impressions are key though and you instantly feel that this game is an addition to Fire in the Hole, another Nolimit City game, that features similar elements including xBomb and similar reels too which helps with the familiarity.
