Game of the Week – Gold Digger
Gold Digger is a 5-Reel, 20-payline online pokie from iSoftBet. The game features a fun gold mining theme with multiple bonus features and the opportunity for big wins. Let’s learn more about this game and the prizes available.
Get Diggin’ For Some Gold
This game has all of the types of symbols you’d expect from this type of game. Royals are the lower-paying symbols. Medium paying symbols are pickaxes and lanterns. The highest paying symbols are the mine cart and Gold Diggin’ Gus.
One thing that I like about this game is that the Royals pay a bit better than average. Except for the jack, you will turn a profit on most Royals with four of a kind and three of a kind aces will turn a profit. Medium and high paying symbols always turn a profit.
However, your best wins will be multi-line wins, and this game gives you multiple ways to make some big wins.
Gold Digger Modifiers
Gold Diggin’ Gus has multiple tools he can use at random to help boost your wins. The most commonly used tool is dynamite. He will throw between three and five sticks and when they explode, symbols turn into Wilds.
Next, if Gus breaks out the pickaxe, he can transform symbols into gold nuggets. This is great for triggering the respin feature.
Finally, if Gus breaks out the TNT box, any Royals on the board will blow up and upgrade into medium to high paying symbols.
In my testing, I got the dynamite a few times and the TNT box once. These features trigger at random, so there’s no telling when, or if they will trigger.
Gold Link Respins
If you land five or more gold nuggets on the board, it will trigger the Gold Link Respins. During the respins, all of the triggering nuggets will remain and you will have chances to get other gold nuggets or gems.
Gems can be used for upgrades or multiplier. When you catch three or more of a gem, it will trigger the feature. Here are the gems you can catch:
- Blue Gems – Unlock a row. You can unlock up to three extra rows.
- Green Gems – These will increase the value of the gold nuggets.
- Red Games – You will get an extra respin added to your tally.
- Purple – These will increase the multiplier level of the round.
During the respin round, every time you land a gold nugget, it is held on the board. Gems are collected and added to the gem counter. Each time a nugget or gem lands, your spins counter is reset. Respins continue until the counter reaches zero or every space on the board is filled.
I was able to unlock the respins feature once. During the game, I unlocked a row, had a boost in both nugget value and multiplier. I also had one spin added during the game. The feature took a while to complete. In the end, I won about 50x my initial bet. Not too bad.
Gold Digger a Fun Pokie With Solid RTP
Gold Digger is one of those rare games that is fun and profitable for most players. With an RTP at 96%, it pays out a bit more frequently than the average pokie we review. During the base game, the wins are substantial enough to keep your bankroll afloat while trying to unlock the bonus game.
There are so many extra features available during the bonus game that most players should enjoy a sizable win. This game is perfect for clearing online casino bonuses or anyone looking for a fun and profitable game. Gold Digger is available at King Johnnie Casino, Wild Card City, and most Australian online casinos offering iSoftBet pokies.
