Pay Dirt Video Slot Review
Pay Dirt is one of the most feature packed RTG slots we have seen. It uses the popular 5 reel, 25 line format, has three different free spin bonuses, a random progressive jackpot and a top prize of 10,000 coins which can be boosted to 30,000 coins with a wild gold nuggets.
The game has a gold rush theme and the graphics are really impressive, in fact this is by far one of the best looking Real Series slots. Maximum bet is 25 coins per game or one coin per pay line. Coin sizes range from 1c to $5 which means max bet is anywhere between 25c and $125 per spin.
The gold nugget symbols are wild. During regular play they only appear on reels 2 and 4. The good news is that they are stacked which means you can get a whole reel full of wilds. The other good news is that any win with a wild is tripled. This can make for some huge multi line jackpots.
The Mine symbol holds the big value with five mines on any active line paying 10,000 coins or a big 30,000 coins i you have at least one gold nugget as part of the win. Second highest pay is a handy 2,500 coins (7,500 with a wild) for five Miner symbols on a pay line. Overall there are a lot of good mid to high pays on Pay Dirt which is always a good thing.
The Pay Dirt Signs are scattered and are your ticket to the free spin bonuses. Get three or more and you win a shot at one of three free spin stages. Scatters can also pay quite well with 5 scattered signs paying 200 times your total bet or a nice 5,000 coins at max bet.
On to the free spin bonuses.When you hit three or more scatters you have to pick one to reveal your bonus. The first bonus is known as the Gold Rush bonus. Here you win 12 free spins with wilds added to all of the reels. There is no multiplier but since you can get a whole screen of wilds you can potentially win an astounding 750,000 coins*. Re-triggers award extra free spins.
The second bonus is the Gold Fever stage. Here you win 5 free games where the middle reel is always wild. This means you only need to line up four of the reels for big wins. This feature was first seen on the Ronin slot. If you get three or more scatters on the bonus you win another 5 free games.
The final bonus is known as the Strike it Lucky stage. Here you start off with 5 gold mines displayed on the screen. You get to pick one to reveal a bonus symbol. You can get extra picks for additional bonus symbols. Once the pick stage is over you get 10 free games where any bonus symbols revealed in the picking mines stage turns into a wild. This feature can be re-triggered as well.
Pay Dirt is a fabulous game. It has everything you could want from a slot machine. Big jackpots, lots of free spin features and the chance to hit a random jackpot at any time. If you are a fan of slots this is a must play.
* While it is technically possible to win 750,000 coins on the free spins this game has a maximum payout of 50,000 X bet per line. This means for example if you are playing at the $1 coin size and spinning the $25 max bet the biggest win you can get is $50,000. We would like to see this limitation removed but it will not effect many players as the whole screen of wilds in not going to occur every day.
