Hi-ho, hi-ho, it’s off to work we go as 4theplayer sends players down the mines in its latest rail-riding slot release, 5k Gold Mine Dream Drop, which tasked players with travelling round the reels in a gold-searching minecart to claim Slot of the Week.
As a 5×4 reel slot with 1,024-ways to win, 4theplayer’s new release offers players a maximum win of up to x5,000 the player’s bet. The game uses a trail bonus game mode to provide a number of different features, while using high volatility with an RTP of 94 per cent.
“We’re thrilled to bring the successful Dream Drop Jackpots feature to our newest game, 5k Gold Mine Dream Drop,” said Geoff Scaplehorn, Product Director at 4ThePlayer.
“This gold rush adventure offers players the excitement of uncovering hidden treasures, the anticipation of winning one of the five linked progressive global Dream Drop Jackpots, and the engaging gameplay that our fans have come to expect.
“We’re confident that the combination of our Trail Bonus feature and the highly successful Dream Drop Jackpots will captivate players and keep them coming back for more mining action!”
Throughout the base game, the reels are surrounded by a trail bonus game mode. At the bottom of the screen at the start of the game, a minecart sits in the lowest position on the trail.
Landing minecart scatter symbols on the reel set can move the minecart into different positions, but only if the minecart reveals an arrow. This arrow will reveal how many spaces the minecart will move while stating the direction it will move in.
Each position on the trail displays a multiplied bet amount. If a minecart symbol appears and reveals a pile of gold, then the player will receive the multiplied bet amount that the minecart game piece is positioned over.
If the minecart reveals that it is empty, players will be taken back to the lowest position on the trail. If it reveals a set of tools, a cash prize will be awarded.
Meanwhile, the minecart can reveal a Dream Drop symbol that takes players to the bonus jackpot game mode. In this game mode, players must spin a reel to reveal an arrow that moves the player around a new game board with jackpot prizes displayed around it.
When players reveal a jackpot prize, after spinning the jackpot reel, instead of an arrow, they will return to the base game after being awarded that respective jackpot prize amount. Jackpot prizes include rapid, midi, maxi, major and mega values that use progressive values.
Back to the base game, the minecart scatters can also reveal a bunch of rubies, awarding players 10 free spins. During these free spins, all ‘free spins’ and ‘Dream Drop’ squares on the trail will award extra free spins, with either five or 10 additional spins available.
Finally, minecart scatters can reveal mystery prizes. When this occurs, players must select from three green gemstones that contain hidden prizes, hoping to select the most profitable value.
