Don’t worry, Dork Unit slot by Hacksaw Gaming is not a game that capitalizes on negative stereotypes on ‘nerds’ and ‘dorks’. Although the portrayals of dorks might not look too visually attractive, they are all lovable, especially when they hand out over 100x multipliers!
Betting Options and Bonus Features
Upon a cartoonish background, Dork Unit presents its 4x5 reels full of colorful symbols, most of which are letters and fruits. But even with a medium volatility, players can still lay their hands on a very juicy max win of 10,000x the bet.
The game has a somewhat traditional 16 paylines and the RTP at 96.28%. What’s unexpected is the mirage of features it has under its sleeves. The first surprise is the gift boxes: there are 3 kinds including common, rare and epic giftboxes, all carrying a multiplier that applies to all winning combinations they are a part of:
- Common: wild, 2x, 3x, 4x
- Rare: 5x, 10x, 15x, 20x
- Epic: 25x, 50x, 75x, 100x, 150x, 200x
When you land 3 gift boxes of any kind, the gift bonanza will be triggered. In this round, all the existing gift boxes remain sticky while the other symbols respin. You start with 3 free spins and each time a new giftbox lands, the free spin number is reset back to 3.
The second type of bonus game in the Dork Unit slot is called the Dork Spins, requiring 3 Lenny symbols to trigger. The Dork Spins starts with 10 free spins, and every Leeny symbol that lands transforms into an expanding wild that covers the whole reel. On each spin, one Dork will appear on the expanding wild to reveal a multiplier:
- Tiny Timmy reveals 2x, 3x, or 4x
- Hefty Hector reveals 5x, 10x, 15x, or 20x
- Long Lenny reveals 25x, 50x, 75x, 100x, 150x, or 200x
Dork Unit brings a level of adorability and innocence that is sometimes missing in slots. The graphics are bright and warm while the dorks are funny and endearing. The multiple features are incorporated into the game skillfully so that the gameplay experience always feels stimulating and dense.
When you think about it, the Gift Bonanza and Dork Spins all revolve around multipliers, but with different branding, expanding wilds, and respin mechanics, they become 2 very distinct game models. Obviously, I prefer Dork Spins for its better reward potential and more personality. In addition, you can buy the bonus, which is convenient for the days when you’re too impatient to wait.
