Since the California Gold Rush of the mid-19th century, mining for gold has become a lost art among commoners. There was a time when waves of people flooded into California and the neighboring states in search of gold. Nowadays, the gold we mine comes from a much more industrial setup designed to produce tons of gold, and you won’t meet many gold miners during your life.
Betsoft is keeping the spirit of the California Gold Rush alive with More Gold Diggin’. You get to go underground into the depths of a gold mine with two real miners to learn the ropes and search for riches. There are a wide variety of great things you can find and do in these mines, so keep your eyes peeled!
More Gold Diggin’ has a pretty standard slot game setup with 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 paylines. You can’t change the number of active paylines in this game. There is a setting for coin value which you can set between 0.02 and 0.50. Your bet per line can be any number between 1 and 5, making the minimum and maximum bets 25 and 125, respectively.
After a winning spin, you can click the Double Up button in the bottom-right corner to bet your winnings double or nothing. The dealer will lay out her card face up and four others face down. Choose a card that’s higher than the dealer’s to double your win. You can only double your win up to five times.
All symbols pay out for matches of 3 or more of a kind—and explode when you land a winning combination. The worst symbol is the green ore, the ruby, the copper ore, the black ore, the silver, the gold, and the diamond. The dynamite symbol is wild for all other symbols. The biggest prize you can win from a payline win is 2,500x your bet per line.
Landing 3 TNT barrels on the first 3 reels on an active payline will trigger the free spins feature. You can re-trigger more free spins during the feature by landing this combination again.
All winning combinations in this game explode. When they explode, a multiplier is added or increased and new symbols appear in their place. If these new symbols create another winning combination, the multiplier is raised again. This can happen up to four times. For regular games, the multipliers are 1x, 2x, 3x and 5x. For free spins, the multipliers are 3x, 6x, 9x, and 15x.
If you want to try More Gold Diggin’ out for free before you spend cash, all you have to do is search for it on Google or at an online gambling site. You won’t even have to sign up for an account unless you want to start playing for real money at some point.
You can even play More Gold Diggin’ on any of your internet-capable mobile devices. The demo version of this game should work on tablets and smartphones, although you may have to turn your device so it’s in landscape mode to play.
With a theme that meshes so perfectly with the spirit of slot games, you’d think this game would be a hit. And you’d be absolutely justified in thinking that. More Gold Diggin’ is definitely an overall solid slot game.
The design of this game is nice and different. The symbols are done in an interesting style and very recognizable since there aren’t many of them. The two characters on the sides provide some comic relief. The one weird part about the design of More Gold Diggin’ is the fact that the symbols fall into place instead of being on actual reels.
There aren’t a ton of bonus features or anything, but this game certainly covered some ground with their features. The exploding payline wins can net you some really big prizes if you’re lucky, and the free spins feature can be re-triggered which is always nice.
What are you waitin’ for? Suit up, grab a pickaxe, and head on down to the mine for some More Gold Diggin’.
