Keep on mining and you’ll soon discover golden nuggets in the 5-reel 25 payline slot game, Gold Rush! This mining-themed slot from Pragmatic Play doesn’t only have a similar name to our casino but also offers you the chance to strike golden riches.
As our name suggests, the slot is themed around gold mining, particularly pertaining to the gold rushes that occurred in many parts of the world in the late 19th and early 20th century (including Johannesburg). A mining prospector with a beard is the main character in the game, as well as other features related to this mining era, including a donkey, a lantern, a shovel, a cart with gold, a pickaxe, and dynamite. The classic song “Oh my darling Clementine”, played by a banjo, serves as the background music, creating an “old-timey” element, while the sounds of banging and mining add further authenticity.
Symbols and Rewards
The low-paying symbols are the card names A, 10, J, Q and K, while dynamite checkers are wild symbols and replace all other symbols except for the scatter in order to help form winning combinations. The scatter symbol is represented as an underground tunnel, and this symbol triggers the Free Spins feature.
The most important symbol and most rewarding figure in the game is the old prospector. When he’s happy, then you’re happy. During the Free Spins bonus game, the old Prospector turns into the king of the reels. The free Spins feature is launched when 3 scatter symbols land on reels 2,3 and 4. This leads to 10 Free Spins as well as an additional symbol- a gold nugget. You then have to collect more nuggets, with increased nuggets resulting in higher-paying symbols. There are 4 levels in total:
- 0 to 4 nuggets = 7 extra symbols
- 5 to 9 nuggets = 16 extra symbols
- 10 to 14 nuggets = 21extra symbols
- 15 + nuggets = 29 extra symbols
The dynamite symbols also come in handy, as the wild symbol creates multiple wins over the 25 paylines.
