Gold Diggers, created by Betsoft has five reels with three rows and up to thirty paylines in active play if players use this much.
The gameplay is based underground amongst timber beams, lanterns, ropes and mine carts all deep down in a dangerous-looking gold mine. Some ominous mouth-organ music compliments the gameplay.
Making their living prospecting for gold and terraforming underground are two brothers who spend their time extracting gold from the mine. Adding to this is that the two brothers are vying for the affections of a beautiful blonde woman who concurrently, is also on her own gold-digging mission.
Amidst the occasional dynamite blasts and back-breaking sweat, players are in a mission to search for more gold to earn them rewards.
How to play Gold Digger
Before players begin their excavation and begin digging for gold, they should adjust their game settings first.
Pressing “Choose Coin” will determine the coin value ranges.
Clicking on the “- and +" buttons will amend the number of paylines that players wish to play within their said game.
Press the "- and +" buttons on the Bet Per Line to adjust how many coins players wish to wager on each line.
Pressing on “Bet Per Line” decides the number of coins to bet per active paylines.
Hitting “Spin” starts the game and will begin to spin the reels in action.
Players who prefer high-rolling games can click the “Max Bet Spin” button and this automatically set's the reels to the highest wager possible- five coins and thirty paylines.
Likewise “Autoplay” automatically turns the reels for a set number of times without interruption for quicker gameplay.
Symbols in Gold Digger
There are eight gold-digging-related icons including the two brotherly miners, the blonde lady, lamps, gold nuggets, metal drums, carts of coal and a pickaxe.
There’s no wild icon, but there are three bonus symbols that all trigger numerous features – so players should watch out for the gopher, the dynamite and the posters.
Bonus features of Gold Digger
Gopher A Dig Bonus
The Gopher A Dig Bonus is activated by landing three or more of the cheery gopher bonus icons in a winning combination on any active payline. Players will then be taken to a picking mini-game where players will be asked to click on the symbols appearing in return for cash prizes.
The Dynamite Bonus is activated when players land three or more of the dynamite bonus icons in a winning combination on active paylines. The Dynamite symbols then payout and explode, where more icons will then fall into the empty holes from above, with the potential to form new winning combinations.
Gold Rush Bonus
The Gold Rush Bonus can only be triggered when players receive three of the poster scatter icons anywhere in view on the screen. Once again players are taken to another picking game where they will help the miners locate more pockets of precious gold behind the rock faces.
As with the case with casino video slots from BetSoft, this is another impressive offering. Gold Diggers is an easy-to-play game with clear instructions for novices to get started with.
The visuals are magnificent, like when the icicle droplets fall from the rocks at the top of the screen; plus when players make a win, the miners jump up and down in excitement.
