Paydirt Slot Review
The phrase "hitting paydirt" should tip you off to the theme of this great game brought to you by Yebo Casino. Developed by the hardworking, creative people at Real Time Gaming, PayDirt is a game that's all about the money, both from a design and from a functionality point of view. The symbols that appear on the five reels include the miner, the donkey, dynamite, a pickaxe and a gold nugget, amongst others. Getting the right combination of these symbols to appear over any of the 25 paylines could be very profitable for you, no matter how large or small your bet is.
This game is made more exciting by its animated symbols. The gold nugget, which is the wild symbol, spins around when it appears and will triple the payout on any winning combination that it completes. One thing you should keep in mind though, is that in this game, unlike the many others developed by RTG, the wild symbol appearing by itself doesn't offer payouts. The scatter symbol, however, offers more than enough opportunities to boost your bucks.
The scatter is the PayDirt logo and when it shows up, is pushed onto the screen by an illustrated gopher. If you find three or more of these on the reels, you'll be able to multiply your payout depending on how many symbols appear, and what your initial wager was. Get five of these and you'll be 200 coins richer. Additionally, three or more of these symbols will take you to a bonus game where you will have to pick a PayDirt logo to access one of three bonus games. If you pick the Gold Rush game, you will get 12 free spins with the wild symbols appearing anywhere. If you pick Gold Fever, you'll get just five free spins but the whole of the third reel will be made up of wild symbols. Finally, if you get the Strike it Lucky bonus, you have to pick a mine for a chance to get a bonus symbol. These bonus symbols will then be used as wilds in 10 free spins, which will give you many opportunities to make a lot of money.
The game also features a fixed top jackpot of 10 000 coins if you get mine symbols to appear on an active payline, and a random progressive jackpot that can be allocated to any player at any time, as long as they keep playing. The random progressive is not restricted in any way, and you won't need to worry about wagering too high or too low if this is what you have your sights set on.
In as far as the design goes, the game is quite simple with basic illustrations. However, the functionality and all of the bonus features really make up for the plain graphics, and the music goes a long way to building the right atmosphere too. This is one of those very special games that is perfect for new and experienced players, and that will keep you busy for hours on end.
