This game features basic symbols as well as special symbols.
The basic symbols include:
- A gold digger
- A mineshaft
- An ox cart
- A pickaxe and a shovel
- Face values J, Q, K, A
The special symbols consist of wilds and scatters. All images encrusted in gold are a wild. The wild can substitute for any symbol except the scatter to form a winning combination.
An image of dynamite depicts the scatter symbol. This symbol is the one you want to see as it unlocks the bonus round that will give you free spins.
Bonus Rounds & Free Spins
This slot doesn’t offer a bonus round. Instead, it provides free spins and a fun mini-game. To trigger its free spins, you need to land three or more scatter symbols of dynamite. Once you do, you have the option of choosing a character to dig out the gold. Each character has a random amount of free spins assigned to it, and you have to pick one to earn them. At most, you can receive ten free spins.
There are five characters to pick from, including Nugget Ned, Professor Gold, Mary Money, Finda the Dog, and Happy Lucky. Once you select a character, they’ll all start digging for gold, and your free spins will be ready to play.
This is an innovative way of rewarding you with free spins and not something you often encounter. You can play a whole mini-game and experience a customized gaming experience.
Additionally, the wild gold symbols are included during free spins rounds. You can also retrigger the free spins feature during the current round. This means you can significantly maximize potential winnings.
Where’s the Gold Jackpot
Sadly, there’s no progressive jackpot in this slot game. However, you can get your hands on the in-game jackpot. You win this jackpot by hitting five wild symbols in a row. If you stake your bet at the maximum amount of $4, you’ll receive 1,000 times this amount which equals $4,000.
