Slot Name: Paydirt!
USA Players: Accepted
Paydirt appears to be a game which tells you about a miner looking for gold, and apparently about someone that’s trying to rob him as well. Mining for gold is dangerous business, but RTG manages to make it fun enough, with carts filled with gold nuggets, with explosives and panning tools all being part of the reels. The slot gets 25 win lines and you can go after jackpots of only $1,500, but at least you pay very little for the privilege.
RTG casinos should have this slot, so this means that even players located in US will be able to play it.
Betting & Jackpots
It’s a game with a fixed wager, of $1.25 per spin. Each line gets a $0.05 coin, and there is no changing any detail about these bets. You simply click on Spin and that’s it.
The slot pays very well, and even without the multiplier from the wild, you can win 10,000 coins. With the multiplier, it goes to 30,000 coins, or $1,500 cash.
The Gold Nugget is a stacked wild in Paydirt. It shows up like that only on two reels, 2nd and 4th, substituting from there for any regular symbol that has the rest of the required symbols for the combo in place. With one or more Nugget wilds in a combo, the payout will be tripled.
The other symbol here is a scatter, a Paydirt Sign, which will award payouts of up to 200x the wager ($250), when you land up to five of them somewhere on the five reels.
The scattered Sign is also useful as a way for you to trigger one of the three special features. Get 3+ scatters and you have a Pick feature, which then gives you one of the three bonus games.
Gold Rush offers 12 free spins, with stacked wilds present on all five reels. They can be retriggered, with 3+ scatters.
Gold Fever gives only 5 free spins, but the 3rd reel has only wild symbols on it. Once again, the 5 spins can be retriggered with 3+ scatters.
Strike It Lucky is the third feature, which shows you 5 gold mines. You pick one and you find a bonus symbol in it. Once this feature is over, you have 10 free spins to play, with the bonus symbol being replaced with a wild whenever it appears. Retriggering the 10 free spins is also possible.
I for one enjoyed the game and its gold mining inspired design. You have both good and bad characters, the miner has a dog and a donkey to help him out, and the symbols are all themed. The drawing style is borrowed from cartoons, but it works for it.
Chances are that you will find Paydirt to be an appealing option. It requires a fixed bet which is very accessible, and it gives back up to 30,000 coins.
