- but why not try one of these?
Mining is an unusually popular theme for online slot machines and there are easily enough for us to have been able to pick our top five mining slots. Perhaps the quest to find precious metals has a similarity to the search for riches while spinning the reels. Anyway, here’s one more to add to the list; it’s called Diggin’ Deep and it’s from Rival Gaming.
Diggin’ Deep is a five reel and twenty payline slot set deep underground where our hirsuite miner is digging for gold. The symbols are all theme-related and include a bucket of gold, a gold nugget, a mine cart, a shovel, a wheelbarrow, a hammer, a lamp, a pickaxe and a green gremlin creature who is the most valuable.
The wild symbol is the miner who appears only on reels one, three and five and will expand to fill the entire reel if it can make a winning combo. There are three scatter symbols – cogs, gold bars and crates – which activate bonus games.
Landing three or more of the cog wheel scatters anywhere on the reels will award you the following number of spins:
- Three cogs – five spins
- Four cogs – ten spins
- Five cogs – twenty spins
All wins are subject to a 3x multiplier.
Three or more gold bars anywhere on the reels will kick this mini-game off and as you can see from the video above it’s a little different.
Starting from the top you must dig you way down through the earth while hoping to bump into treasure as you go. Once you’ve started digging you can move left, right, up or down and you will only stop when you encounter the gremlin.
Pick A Crate
Three or more crate symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger this feature; it’s quite brief – three crates will be wheeled onto the screen and all you have to do is pick one for a coin prize.
Diggin’ Deep Online Slot Playing Tips
All the features in this game are triggered by scatter symbols which don’t have to be on an active payline to be effective. This means low rollers can play just one payline and still have the same chance of activating those games.
We like most things about this game – the graphics and animations are good, there are lots of bonus features and even the sound effects are passable. The only downside is the slightly low RTP of 92.41%.
