PayDirt is a slot game developed by the busy team at RTG which focuses on the theme of the famous Gold Rush in the United States. Initially, the game looks to be bright, full of fun, and cool to play, but what should you really expect from it?
Overview of Paydirt!
This game offers a 5×3 reel setup and there are also 25 different paylines for you to bring into play, should you wish to bet on all of them. The background is a gold mining camp while the reels still reflect that theme with them being gold in color, but then there are the symbols.
In this instance, you are looking at miners, bad guys, gold panning, trucks filled with gold, picks, and other symbols that are clearly associated with the search for gold. Overall, we think that they have done pretty well in lining up the graphics with the theme.
How to Play Paydirt!
Before hitting spin, you need to set up your bet. Start by choosing the coin denomination by hitting the plus or minus buttons to change the value. Also, change the bet per line and number of paylines being brought into play, and watch as the total cost to you also changes accordingly. You need to do this before hitting spin, and if you love the settings, you can also hit the autoplay button to speed things up.
Bonus Features of Paydirt!
The game does come with various bonus features built into it. The first thing to mention is the wild card which is represented by the golden nugget. This is only going to pop up on reels 2 or 4. If you land the nugget on both reels, then any prizes you win will then be paid out at 3x the rate.
Also, look out for the Pay Dirt symbol appearing. Land 3 of them to trigger the special ‘pick me’ game where you actually have 3 options. Choose from the ‘Gold Rush’ game, ‘Strike it Lucky’ and ‘Gold Fever’ with each having its own unique twist.
For Gold Rush, you land 12 free spins. Land 2 or more nuggets during these spins and you re-trigger it all.
For Strike it Lucky, you get 5 mines appearing before you. Select one and you get a bonus symbol. You then have 10 free spins and that bonus symbol is swapped for a gold nugget any time it appears.
Finally, with Gold Fever, you get 5 free spins and the third reel is filled with gold nuggets.
Betting and Payouts for Paydirt!
The coin bet per line can vary from $0.01 all the way up to $5, which does mean a maximum bet of $125 per spin. You need to be aware that the maximum jackpot is set at 10,000 coins, so if you land 5 mines on a payline, then you could win a substantial sum of money. However, other symbols do offer reasonable payouts as well.
Pay Dirt is certainly fun, and having those different bonus games is better than simply having wilds and scatters like normal. You never know what’s going to happen, and with the chance to place a low bet, you can easily check out this game without stressing too much about money.
