Low value symbols come in the form of gemstones with collours of blue, cyan, green, purple, gold and red. If the right number of paying combinations land on a single spin, these symbols can offer between x0.2 and x0.8 the player’s wager. 

Toolboxes, spades and pickaxes depict the medium value symbols, offering between x0.4 and x1.5 the player’s preferred stake. 

High value symbols are represented by two badger characters, one with a blue helmet and the other with red. These symbols can offer between x0.8 and x5 the player’s bet. 

Wild minecarts are also available on reels two through four, substituting for all symbols other than dynamite scatters. When contributing to a payline win, these minecarts collect the value of the win and nudge up one row before a free spins is awarded. 

Finally, collecting five or more scatters during a single game round will trigger the free spins game mode. 


This slot uses cascading wins, meaning that symbols in a winning combination will disappear after providing their payout, making way for new symbols to drop in and increase the game’s win potential.

Three multipliers sit above the second, third and fourth reels, while ‘+’ or ‘x’ symbols can appear in between them to enhance these multipliers by either adding them together or multiplying them. 

When wild minecarts nudge up the reels, they will activate one free respin. As these mine carts only appear in the second, third and fourth reels – along with the multipliers – the aim of the game is to nudge the minecarts all the way up the screen to their respective multipliers. 

If a minecart nudges all the way up the reels and off the screen, the monetary value it has collected from the payline wins it contributed to will be enhanced by the reel’s multiplier before being paid to the player. 

During the free spins game mode, players are given seven spins while all minecart symbols that don’t nudge all the way to the top will remain in their place rather than disappearing as they do in base game spins.


Mark McGinley, Chief Gaming Officer at Yggdrasil, stated: “Badger Miners sees us take a fun-loving theme and add an exciting concept with cash wilds, which can lead to activating big multipliers.

“With an easy-to-understand reel layout and huge win potential, it’s an immersive new addition to our portfolio with a band of determined badgers!”
