Overview Of Dork Unit

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the show! Let me introduce you to the three Dorks. Tiny Timmy, Hefty Hector and Long Lenny also known as the Dork Unit! 

Slot Description

Dork Unit is a 5 reel, 4 row slot with 16 fixed paylines and has 2 bonus features, one with sticky wild multipliers and one with wild multiplier reels with variable multipliers.

Gift Boxes are wild multipliers in Dork Unit. There are 3 different kinds of gift boxes as shown below. The common gift box on the left, the rare gift box in the middle and the epic gift box on the right. The common gift boxes always show there multiplier value where as the rare and epic gift boxes only reveal there multiplier when they are part of a winning combination. If more than 1 gift box is part of a combination the multipliers are added together before being applied to the win.

If you land 3 or more of any of the gift boxes in 1 spin you are awarded the Gift Bonanza bonus game. The placement and the value of the triggering gift boxes is carried over into the bonus. All gift boxes that land during the bonus are sticky. You start with 3 spins and landing any additional gift boxes resets the remaining spins to 3 to keep the bonus going similar to Chaos Crew, 3 spins without any new gift boxes landing ends the bonus.

The other feature is called Dork Spins and its triggered by landing 3 of the Lenny Clown scatters in the base game. In Dork Spins the scatter symbol can only land on reels 2, 3 and 4. When the scatter lands on any of those reels it expands to create a wild Dork Reel! All Dork reels remain for the duration of the bonus.

On every spin 1 of the Dorks will appear on each expanded reel and reveal a multiplier value based on which Dork appeared. All connecting win lines are then multiplied by the value shown. If a winline connects to more than 1 Dork Reel, the multipliers are added together before being applied to the win.

Tiny Timmy can reveal multipliers of 2x, 3x or 4x.

Hefty Hector can reveal multipliers of 5x, 10x, 15x or 20x.

Long Lenny can reveal multipliers of 25x, 50x, 75x, 100x, 150x or 200x.

The paytable in Dork Unit is dynamic and changes with your stake, the example below is set to £1 per spin for clarity. We start with the 10’s and J’s that pay 0.1x for a full way of 5, the Q’s, K’s and the A’s pay 0.2x respectively.

Final Thoughts On Dork Unit

Dork Unit has an RTP of 96.28%, the volatility is rated medium and the maximum win is 10,000x stake. I personally don’t agree with the volatility rating as I think it plays more like a high variance game, there are plenty of features that pay close to nothing and also many that pay well over 500x and in my opinion that isn’t medium variance! I’m sure the developers ran billions of spins to come to that conclusion but for an actual player in the wild like myself it felt highly volatile every time I played it.

Now the volatility has been addressed it was actually a fun game to play, super simple mechanics and very lazy graphics but still managed to be entertaining at the same time. It’s not going to set the world on fire but it’s a nice little addition to Hacksaws portfolio.
