iSoftBet has opened up a brand new mine where players see the return of Gold Diggin’ Gus accompanied by his canine companion, Boomer, in Gold Digger Megaways.
Gold Digger Megaways is a 6×2-7, 117,649-payline video slot that incorporates an extra tracker reel and cascading wins.
Symbols in the game include four classic A-J royals offering x0.50 to x0.75 the bet for six-of-a-kind wins, followed by a lantern, pickaxe, a cart of gold and, the premium, Gold Diggin’ Gus himself, offering up to x25 the bet for six-of-a-kind wins.
Moving onto special symbols, wilds substitute for all regular-pays and appear only on the top reel, while the golden nugget symbol is used to trigger the gold hold & win respins.
The slot incorporates features such as a top tracker reel, cascading reels, Hold & Win respins, reel boosters, Boomer’s boot and a buy bonus.
Starting with the top tracker reel, this sits above the reels and adds one symbol to reels two, three, four and five.
Also featuring cascading reels, every winning symbol is part of a reaction and is replaced by cascading symbols from above the reels. Winning symbols on the horizontal top tracker will be replaced by symbols shifting from right to left. during cascading wins, the number of ways is fixed at the same amount as on the initial winning spin.
Furthermore, should the player land five or more gold nuggets on a single spin, they will trigger the Hold & Win respins, awarding an initial three spins, which will reset every time a new symbol lands.
During this mode, different coloured reel boosters can also appear, with blue symbols increasing the reel size, green boosting all values in view, red adding extra lives and purple increasing the win multiplier. Also during this feature, faithful dog Boomer can appear to add an extra gold nugget or reel booster.
Additionally, players can also activate the Gold Bet feature, for a 50% increase in stake, which guarantees a minimum of 10,000 ways on every spin.
Finally, in certain jurisdictions, the bonus buy feature is present, allowing users to progress straight to the Hold & Win respins round.
WHAT THEY SAY
Mark Claxton, Head of Games, iSoftBet, commented: “Gold Digger became an immediate hit when we launched it a couple of years ago, and we are thrilled to welcome it back to our portfolio with more features and more ways to win than ever before.
“The Megaways mechanic allowed us to include cascading wins, while the Hold & Win bonus round, with Reel Booster modifiers, means lucrative wins can be found in every seam of this golden hit.”
