How to play

This is a exploding reels game – meaning that when you hit a win, the winning symbols explode to make room for more falling in their place and the possibility of a further win. The available coin size to play ranges from £0.01 per line to £5.00 per line, making a possible max stake of £100 if you play all 20 lines.  You change stake and number of lines with a box at the left hand side of the game screen which pulls out when you click the > symbol.

Symbols

Wild Symbol: There are no wild symbols in this game.

Bonus Symbol: There are no bonus symbols in this game.

Free Spins Symbol: Just to continue the theme, there are no free spins symbols in this game.

The most attractive symbol in this slot is a rather portly miner. If you manage to land five of him on an active pay line then he will win you a hefty five thousand coins.

Other symbols include a mining cart, a pickaxe and some dynamite. They can win you up to 2,500 coins.

The other available symbols are card symbols A, K, Q, and J. They can win you up to seventy-five times your coin value.

Jackpot

Dynamite Digger Jackpot feature

This game features a special Playtech inspired jackpot mechanism. This is a fixed amount marketing prize of £500, which is not influenced by player stakes and pays out randomly on any spin on average every 24 hours. Players who have staked at least 20p on a spin will be eligible to win the Jackpot. You can win the jackpot even if you don’t win on any of your selected paylines due to the totally random nature of the payout.

Special Features

The main (and, only) feature in this game is the exploding reels feature. If you land any kind of win then all winning symbols involved in the win will explode and disappear from the reels. The rest of the symbols cascade downwards and new symbols drop in from the top. These can create new winning combinations and so the process repeats.

This exploding reels feature will roll over and over until no further winning combinations are created, at which point the feature ends.

Graphics and Sounds

The original Dynamite Digger slot from Playtech was a little old-fashioned looking, but they’ve really upped their game for this sequel. The graphics and sounds are really up-to-the-moment and are precisely how you’d expect a modern online slots game to look and feel.

Playtech has taken a very minimalistic approach with the controls of this game, and players love it. The original game is held in high regard by slot players and this new version will carry on the legend.

Conclusion

Mining games are quite common in the world of online slots and Playtech has unleashed another decent attempt to add to that theme. While this game won’t appeal to everyone, it did appeal to us and will appeal to anyone that prefers a minimalist style of slot game that simply delivers wins via the paylines and not through loads of fancy features.
