The earth is loaded with resources that sustain us. Many of these have to be mined. The online casino player is more attracted to mining of gold and diamonds and there are several slots machines based on this theme. This article picks out the best of the mining themed online slots from the leading software providers.

Fortune Finder from Microgaming lets players pick from gold, ruby and diamond. The chosen precious commodity becomes the wild symbol, whereas the other two behave as normal symbols. The other thematic symbols include the mine cart, pan of precious stones, dynamite sticks and pick axe. The payouts are quite attractive with the mine cart paying 6,000 coins when five appear aligned on an active payline. The miner is the scatter symbol. When three, four or five scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels the player is awarded 15, 20 or 25 free spins. All payouts during the free spins are doubled and the free spins can be retriggered. Fortune Finder offers the Microgaming gamble game in which players can try to double or quadruple their payouts. Fortune Finder is live at Microgaming online casinos such as Platinum Play and Golden Riviera.

The software provider Realtime Gaming has released an online slot machine titled Paydirt. There are a lot more thematic symbols in this slot game because the high value card symbols have been done away with. The symbols reflect the usual mining activities and include mine entrance, miner, outlaw, donkey, mine cart, dynamite, pan, lantern and pick axe. The gold nugget is the wild symbol. It appears only on reels 2 and 4, but it makes up for this by tripling all payouts when it appears in winning combinations. The Paydirt logo is the scatter symbol and it triggers one of three bonus games. Gold Rush awards 12 free spins in which the gold nugget wild symbol appears stacked on the reels. Gold Fever awards five free spins in which the third reel is held with wild gold nugget symbols. Strike It Lucky awards 10 free spins in which a bonus symbol acts as a second wild symbol. This online slot game features the randomly triggered progressive jackpot that can be hit after any spin. Pay Dirt is live at Realtime Gaming online casinos such as Club World and Slots Jungle.

The software provider Playtech had a recent release titled Hot Gems. The introductory clip of this slot game shows a miner at work deep inside a tunnel. The seam opens up and a flood of gems carries the miner out. The thematic symbols include miner, lantern, pick axe and mine cart. The high value card symbols have been replaced by colorful gems. The Wild logo is the wild symbol, the Hot Gems logo is the scatter symbol and the Free Games logo and triggers the free spins. In hot gems Playtech has introduced the Collapsing Reels feature. The symbols that participate in winning combinations explode to leave empty spaces that are filled by other symbols. If this results in further winning combinations then the process repeats. Playtech takes the Collapsing Reels feature to a higher level during the free spins. With each collapsing of the reels the multiplier is enhanced by one. The graphics and animation in this slot game are simply awesome. Hot Gems is live at Playtech online casinos such as Casino Tropez.
