The mine shaft symbol is the highest paying symbol of the game and will pay you a generous 10,000 coins if five appear on a payline. Get a total of five with the wild symbol & you’ll be awarded an amazing 30,000 coins!
The wild symbol of the game is a golden nugget. It is found on reels two & four only, and appears in series of 1, 2, or 3 down a reel. The gold nugget substitutes for all other symbols of the game except the scatter PAYDIRT! sign. Get the wild on a payline, and your wins are tripled!
One of three bonus games will trigger a “pick sign” feature when three or more scatter signs appear anywhere on the screen. Upon choosing a sign, a fiesty little gopher appears, flipping the sign over to reveal which bonus game you’ve been awarded to play.
The bonus games include:
Gold Rush: 12 free games are awarded in which grouped gold nuggets can appear on any reel. Get 3 or more PAYDIRT! scatter signs during free game play and the feature will re-trigger for you.
Gold Fever: 5 free games are awarded during this bonus & the third reel is made up of entirely of wild gold nuggets. The feature can be re-triggered if 3 or more PAYDIRT! signs appear.
Strike It Lucky: 5 gold mine symbols will appear on the screen. Select one mine to reveal a bonus symbol. During your pick, you could reveal a sign that says you’ve earned an extra bonus pick. Ten free games are then played. During free spin play, your bonus symbol(s) will be replaced with a wild gold nugget before pays are awarded! Ten free spins will be added to your play if 3 or more PAYDIRT! scatter symbols appear on the screen.
Beginning play with $50, I set my bet to $1.25 per spin. During a total of fifty-three spins taken, the wild symbol completed winning combinations for me four times. The scatter appeared seven times in series of two for me, but I wasn’t lucky enough to get that third symbol to trigger a bonus game. I lost all money during this play.
Depositing $25 more, I reduced my bet to fifty cents per spin and got in a total of 119 spins. During those spins, the wild completed wins for me eleven times, one of those being a $6.00 win which kept me in play. The scatter appeared in series of twos for me ten times. I did hit a third scatter one time and was awarded the Gold Rush bonus game.
During bonus play, of twelve free spins awarded, the wild completed three winning combinations for me and I won a total of $4.30 on my completed play.
Forty-two spins later, I was down to ninety-seven cents in my purse.
Perhaps lady luck just wasn’t with me today because I’ve heard others say they love this slot, finding that the bonus games are triggered quite frequently for them during play.
Today, I found that this slot is not one that pays out a lot when you hit a winning combination because those combinations are; more times than not; wins of the lower paying symbols. The higher paying symbols (mine shaft & miner) only appeared one time for me during all play, and only in a series of two.
I think I will give this slot another try, on another day, and hope to strike it lucky!
