Mines may be thought of as dirty but they are also the place where players can earn lots of virtual gold nuggets and benefit from a random progressive jackpot that can be won at any time when playing the real money version of this game. There are five reels and twenty five paylines in this game that includes a random choice of bonus feature games and the player can re-trigger each one of these. Players may choose coin sizes from a wide selection ranging from $0.01 up to $5 with a maximum bet of $125 per spin. There is an auto play option for players that like to preset the number of spins the game runs for consecutively and at any point the player can stop this and revert to manually hitting the spin button.
The Benefits of Gold Mining
The gold nuggets are the wild symbol and they appear on reels 2 and 4 where they can substitute for other symbols and help to complete winning payouts. When the gold nuggets are used in a winning payout, the winnings for that line are tripled. The sign of the PayDirt! mine is the scatter and this awards players multiplying payouts in addition to being a trigger for one of the bonus games. Three of the scatters awards the player 2x the coin bet placed, four awards the player 20x the coin bet placed and five awards the player 200x the coin bet placed. Three and more of the scatters also triggers one of the random bonus games. The player can either win the Gold Rush, the Gold Fever or the Strike it Lucky bonus game. The Gold Rush bonus game rewards players with 12 free spins during which all nuggets appearing are grouped on the reels they appear. The Gold Fever bonus game rewards players with 5 free spins during which reel 3 is filled with gold nuggets and any re-trigger awards the player a further 5 free spins. The Strike it Lucky bonus game gives players a chance to pick one of five gold mines that will reveal a bonus symbol. The player is then awarded 10 free spins and during these spins the bonus symbol appears. Players can re-trigger more games with the bonus symbol receiving another 10 free spins. Playing this game is fun and rewarding and if the player is lucky enough to win the random progressive jackpot, he may even buy some gold nuggets of his own!
