PayDirt Review

PayDirt is a video slot from the suite of Real Time Gaming. The slot game has five reels, twenty-five paylines, and a maximum bet of 25 coins. The game is based on the gold mining theme reminiscent of the Gold Rush of 1849. The symbols on the reels capture this theme effectively. The prominent symbols are Gold Nugget, PayDirt Sign, Mine, Miner, Bandit, Donkey, Trolley, Dynamite, Dog, Pick Axe, Pan and Lantern. Using actual mining symbols instead of high card values has made the Gold Rush experience more realistic. The Gold Nugget is the wild symbol and the PayDirt Sign is the scatter symbol. The scatter symbols leads to free spins through one of three bonus features.

The animation in PayDirt is good. The Gold Nugget symbol starts to rotate and the PayDirt Sign is pushed out by a gopher. The bonus features effectively combine bonus games on the second screen with free spins. Audio instructions in these features help the players considerably.

The game has a progressive jackpot that is triggered randomly. The jackpot can be triggered at any wager and does not depend on any particular combination in a payline. Read Full Review

Full Review - PayDirt (9.58)

Before starting the game players will have to choose the coin denomination by operating the arrows next to the BET button. Coin denominations are 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.25, 0.50, 1.00 and 5.00. Player will also have to enable up to twenty-five paylines by operating the arrows next to the LINES button. Winning combinations pay only if they occur in enabled paylines. In PayDirt players are constrained to wager one coin per line by default. Once the settings have been completed the game can be started by clicking the SPIN button.

The Gold Nugget is the wild symbol and it appears grouped only on reels 2 and 4. It triples the payouts if it substitutes in a winning combination. However in itself this symbol does not offer any payouts. The PayDirt Sign is the scatter symbol. Three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels result in a scatter payout, which is multiplied by the total bet. Five scatter symbols have a payout of 200 coins. Three or more scatter symbols also activate the feature games. There are three feature games and the player has to pick a PayDirt Sign to reveal which game will be played. Gold Rush offers 12 free spins in which Grouped Gold Nuggets can appear on any reel. Gold Fever offers 5 free spins in which reel 3 will always be entirely of Gold Nuggets. However Strike It Lucky is the best. It first takes players to a second screen where they pick mines and get bonus symbols. They then get 10 free spins in which the given bonus symbols act as wilds. This game is a veritable bonanza of credits.

PayDirt has a progressive jackpot that is hit randomly. The highest fixed jackpot in normal spins is of 10000 coins when five Mine symbols appear in an enabled payline. The second highest fixed jackpot is 2500 coins when five Miner symbols appear in an enabled payline. The payout table can be accessed by clicking the HELP button.
